The News is out! The next Miss Universe edition may just happen in the Philippines! And we are very excited. Philippines first hosted the pageant in 1974 when Spain won. Then they hosted in 1994 when India’s Sushmita Sen won the coveted crown. It’s been more than two decades and the time is right for the new powerhouse to take this responsibility once again.
Reasons why Miss Universe should happen in Philippines
There are many reasons to be excited about Philippines being the host. First among them is the fact that it’s been really long since an Asian country hosted Miss Universe. Last it happened was in 2008 when Vietnam was the host. Asian countries are always great hosts. The cultures are lot more colorful and the whole production is generally more vibrant. Second reason for the excitement is the fact that the host country is full of pageant-crazy fans! Pinoys are so crazy about Miss Universe that they will travel even to Antarctica to cheer up their contestant in Miss Universe finals.
Miss Universe will be a month-long big party if it happens in Philippines. It may be held in the biggest arena and may witness the largest audience. The show may get HUGE TRP’s too. The media coverage will be fabulous. The reigning Miss Universe Pia is from Philippines and she will be crowning her successor in the home country. Also, Philippines has always been an exceptionally good host. Whenever they host, the winner is the first girl from her country to win (Spain in 1974, India in 1994). Of course, the locals would also benefit because tourism industry can get a boost.
Thus, all in all, the world should be happy about the news. We certainly are!!
