Miss Universe is Definitely ON! That is the definite message of former Governor Chavit Singson during the Manny Pacquiao – Jessie Vargas fight!
When we first published the news that reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach will be watching the boxing bout, we also said that there was a rumored possible ‘meeting’ of Chavit and the MUOrg officials. And who showed up in Las Vegas? Well it’s none other than the top brass of MUO itself: Paula Shugart, Shawn McClain and Esther Swann were all there. According to our moles, they have ironed out the details of the 65th Miss Universe pageant in Manila. It can be remembered that the former Ilocos Sur Governor, alongside other business partners, will be footing the $12 million bill for the pageant hosting in the Philippines.
According to our sources, the Miss Universe pageant in January will start with the candidates’ visit to Camiguin. One of the venues where the swimsuit presentation of the candidates will be at the Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark Cebu in Lapu-Lapu City. Then an auxiliary event will take place in Davao called Mindanao Tapestry Fashion Show, that will showcase Mindanao’s traditional woven fabrics and textiles. Additional sources say that at least 30 candidates will be toured at the Philippine Military Academy, the Mansion and other tourist spots in the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio City. Other venues that will be given spotlight on will be Vigan, Iloilo and Palawan.
