The Miss Nepal 2008 contest was canceled at the last minute.
The contestants of Miss Nepal 2008 completed the training and on the last day of the finale, the event was canceled. The Maoist parliamentarians and the organization they were affiliated with were threatening to do harm if the contest went through despite of their protest. The party was the ruling party and the risk was not worth taking for the organizer.
Some of the contestants later participated in the 2009 edition of the contest. The Miss Nepal 2009, Zenisha Moktan, was one of the contestants of 2008. Miss Nepal Earth 2009, Sahana Bajracharya was also one of the contestants of 2008.
