Yes folks! It’s currently circulating over the web that the Miss Universe 2017 edition will be happening on November 26th in Phoenix, Arizona!
According to MV La Nueva Era, the next edition of the pageant will be held in the 5th most populous city in the United States.
Additional rumors also has it that the candidates are expected to arrive in Phoenix between the 1st to the 5th of November where they will kick off the pre-activities that will culminate on the Thanksgiving weekend pageant finals. Preliminaries are rumored to be scheduled either on November 21s or on the 22nd.
Get ready Philippines as it looks like the Miss Universe 2017 pageant is going to be in Manila afterall.
Arriving low key in the Philippines are the Miss Universe organization headed by Shawn McClain with President Paula Shugart. They had a welcome dinner hosted by LCS head Chavit Singson who is said to be one of the major backers of the pageant again in Manila. Our mole tells us that Okada Manila is also on-board the discussions and that the venue is not going to be at the Araneta Coliseum as previously (rather erroneously) reported but still possibly in the Mall of Asia Arena. No final dates of the pageant is yet available to us but it still will happen within November until the first week of December.
So far only those details are available to us from our moles but stay tuned as Sashes&Scripts are keeping tabs of these developments.
Published several days ago, Sashes&Scripts have revealed that the possible date for the Miss World pageant might be on the 2nd of December. But the juicy part is that the Miss Universe might also happen during the same month, on December 17th! Surely a clash between the two rival pageants is gonna heat up!!!
Sanya, China is to host the Miss World pageant (yet again for the 7th time) while according to some of our moles the Miss Universe is still being ironed out to be hosted in Australia (although Las Vegas might be the default venue if it does not push thru). The dates have not yet been confirmed but the two rival pageants are said to go head to head come December. If such is the case, countries like Russia and South Africa would have to make a selection where their main winner would have to participate in.
But more than that, a possible repeat of what happened in 2015 might occur. During that time, the whole pageant community has fixed their eyes on what was happening in Las Vegas than the coronation happening in Sanya (then came the infamous glib of announcing the wrong winner which buried the Miss World pageant in terms of publicity). Could that same scenario happen again this year?
Yes, you heard it right! The Miss Universe ‘Little Sisters are making a comeback!
Yes, the rumors that have been floating around about the return of the Little Sisters turns out to be true.But before you get your panties in a bunch so hold your horses, they are not going to be back in the MU pageant finals.
