Thoughts on Miss Universe Rumors Being Sold

We’ve heard the rumors before: Trump is gonna buy the Miss Universe pageant back, the Kardashians will be the new owners, Ryan Seacrest purchased the pageant from Endeavor, etc…

Now it’s making the rounds all over again on social media following the comments from one of the key people from CHI, revealing that the pageant was already sold.

We saw this coming from a mile away since we learned about the financial woes of the Miss Universe pageant’s parent company, Endeavor (formerly IMG|WME) early this year. We even gave a timeline of how their financials fell apart in an article. Who are we kidding? Endeavor currently has an astonishing $4.6 billion in long-term debts and overall liabilities totaling $7.2 billion. A company with that much debt is bound to sell their assets sooner or later…

At this point do we even care? The pageant has been rumored to be passed like a toy from one donation bin to another… Personally, we just wanted a consistently good show from year to year like it used to in the 80’s-90’s. New ownership or not.

If the Miss Universe pageant has truly been sold, then brace yourselves pageant fans. NEW doesn’t automatically translate to BETTER. The new owners might exercise more controls than previous owners have. It could mean changes in leadership and organizational structure as well. So there are many unknown factors to consider in this development. All of which pageant fans like us are powerless spectators of what is to unfold before us…

What do you think about this new “development”? Do you even care who the new owners are? Let us know on the comments below…

  1. I think Miss Universe 2010 is the pinnacle point of Miss Universe. It’s very youthful and lively, yet classy and elegant at the same time. When IMG took over in 2015, the liveliness of the show vanished.

  2. honestly, I am already tired of following this pageant. Tinabangan na ko mula nung nag umpisa silang magskip ng taon, and the 2017 edition? mas bongga pa mga probinsya pageants. It’s sad and disappointing but we, pageant fans, saw this coming already. We cannot deny the fact na MU is no longer what is used to be. Hindi na ito ang MU na minahal nating lahat.
