Miss Universe 2014 pageant to introduce new DIC crown; Philippines bet garners most attention for her advocacy and spirit
The 63rd Miss Universe is already set to expose the 88 gorgeous women from all around the world competing to be the successor of the incumbent title-holder Gabriela Isler from Venezuela.
Live all the way from US Century Bank Arena at Florida International University in Doral, the final night is set to determine the new winner of the said pageant, who is also the first to wear the new DIC Miss Universe crown -- which will be revealed later during the show.
The venue, FIU, contributes more an almost $9 billion annually and is recognized for its colleges and school offers of nearly 200 program fields. This is, as reported, the chosen host to endorse and advertise the beauty of Doral.
As the pageant's season is heating up, there have been the early crowd favorites named including Miss USA Nia Sanchez, Miss India Noyonita Lodh, Miss Brazil Melissa Gurgel, and Miss Philippines Mary Jean Lastimosa.
As of the moment, Miss Philippines Mary Jean Lastimosa garners the most likes and shares on the official Facebook page of Miss Universe. The contestant has been loudly recognized on the social media for being 'such an advocate for peace and humanity' considering that she grew up on a war-torn province in her country.
Meanwhile, Natalie Morales and Thomas Roberts are appointed as the hosts of the grand event, together with Miss Universe 2013 3rd runner-up Ariella Arida from Philippines as an 'On the Scene' insider.
In the side of the judges, the organization suggested the World Boxing Champion Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao to be one of the judges, in which he still has not confirmed yet.
Still, the organization has not posted the list of performers who are set to boost the crowd's hypes.
Tomorrow, January 8, at 6:30 in the evening, the contestants will be at The Rusty Pelican Restaurant in Miami to promote the Best Buddies International, and begin the pre-pageant event. Meantime, the tickets of the Dress Rehearsals, Preliminary Competition, and Final Night may be purchased here.
Miss Universe 2014 will be broadcast live on January 25, Sunday, at 8/7c on NBC and Telemundo. Who is your bet to win the highly coveted and newest DIC crown? Stay tuned for more details about the pageant.
