The season to be excited about the Miss Universe pageant has begun! Based on what we have been seeing online there are at least 15 ladies to be on the look out in the coming 69th edition of the Miss Universe pageant.
Despite the lack of reliable information on the dates of the MU pageant, we cannot help but sense the feeling that an official announcement may be made by the end of December. But that shouldn’t be of our concern for the moment because the Miss Universe fever seems to have started. And we have listed the ladies that every pageant fan should watch out for!
Blogger’s note: the names are listed in random order and shouldn’t be mistaken for a ranked list.
With an Afro-American Miss USA winner and a biracial Filipina-American Miss Teen USA titleholder, there might be a room for a Latina Miss Universe winner for the 2020 edition of the pageant.
Diversity seems to be the mantra, or some say agenda, that the Miss Universe organization has been pushing nowadays. The conspiracy theorist in us is now looking at the possibility that the Miss Universe 2020 title may be reserved for a Latina winner to complete the set of diverse winners. It is no secret that the Miss Universe organization loves controversy, publicity is always something that is seemingly welcomed by the organization. Last year, the MUOrg made great headlines when its set of winners, from Miss Universe to the Miss Teen USA were all black women (Cheslie Kryst, Kaleigh Garris and Zozibini Tunzi). It also helped that the Miss America 2019 Nia Franklin was also black. They have been the talk of the media that rose the wave of the Black Lives Matter movement. The publicity that they have garnered was immense, as they have been on print and broadcast media for a large part of their reign.
A new Miss USA has been crowned and she is Mississippi’s first African-American winner and now the states’ first Miss USA titleholder, Asya Danielle Branch.
This former Miss Mississippi America 2018 stands 5’6 1/2″ tall and is a 22-year-old University of Memphis marketing major. Despite making up almost 40 percent of Mississippi’s population, Asya is the first Black contestant from the state to take home the top honor at the pageant’s national level.
