The fated day is almost here! With only a week left, the hype for the Miss Universe 2016 is definitely real. And where will this big event be happening? Why, none other than the country Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015, calls home: The Philippines!
The country, as Miss Wurtzbach mentioned, is well known for its obsession with the three B’s (basketball, boxing and, of course, beauty pageants). This has many Filipinos excited that their country will be hosting this annual event which showcases not only the outer beauty of the women across the world, but their inner beauty as well. These contestants have been training long and hard, honing their talents, knowledge and confidence to truly shine onstage and have their shot at taking the coveted crown.
As for where the magic will be happening, the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City is the selected venue where all of these international beauties will converge. Steve Harvey will take the stage once more as the host while model Ashley Graham will handle backstage commentary to give viewers a full scope of the event.
Before the big occasion, though, these worldwide beauties jumped from island to island to perform a textile fashion show in Davao, go touring in Vigan, and participate in a swimsuit show at Cebu. The glamorous gals also paraded the streets of Baguio, and in Boracay for a tropical photos hoot to help promote the event and these archipelago-based destinations as well.
Come January 30, 2017, the country is sure to be taking a seat, whether in front of the stage or behind a TV screen. All eyes will be on these gorgeous and talented ladies who are sure to dazzle the world with a show they won’t soon forget. So who will Pia Wurtzbach hand her crown to? You’ll have to watch to find out!
