The Miss Universe have officially announced that Steve Harvey will host the pageant with Ashley Graham as the backstage host/color commentator for the 65th Miss Universe in Manila. But our insiders have told us that reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach is being eyed to be Steve’s co-host for the finals!
This is not final yet but the idea has floated around. Who would be a better co-host than one from the host country who is also a Miss Universe, right? But let’s not get too excited just yet. We heard that several local celebrities are eyeing the gig too. In fact one local talk show royalty is said to have auditioned and failed to pass the stringent requirements of the Miss Universe organization. It might have something to do with the said celebrity’s hosting skill that is too ‘masa’ and not yet for international standards. There are also several Filipina actresses and beauty queens that were being thought of as possible co-host. But one of them stands out because of her major appeal to pageant fans. Now if this indeed pushes through then we can expect that she would bring the house down with her sheer presence. I wonder though if she has already whittled back down to her whistle-bait figure?
