The 65th Miss Universe is currently campaign across the country day by day. All delegates are being scheduled to visit selected areas across the country to showcase their beauty, inspirational figure while promoting the annual beauty pageant. The delegates have just visited Manila, Boracay, Vigan, Cebu, and Baguio City. Each delegate was and will still be given the chance to ride the plane, yacht, bus, and other modes of transportation to visit several areas across the archipelago. Aside from the delegates, the administrators, national directors, and the ambassadress of Miss Universe delegates are given the chance to visit several hot spots in the Philippines that are regarded as one of the favorite tourist spots.

Let us move on with the delegates from Latin America. These are the delegates from Central and South American region of the world. This is by far the most competitive delegates in every beauty pageant around the world. Either handpicked or won the license to represent their country, representatives are always required to undergo rigorous beauty pageant training for several months. Other delegates will train each delegate for more than one year before participating in international beauty pageant competitions. This is the reason why countries from other continents send their delegates to Venezuela or Colombia to train their delegates for major international competitions.
65th Miss Universe Latin America contestants
Latin America is a region in the Western Hemisphere that was formerly colonized by the Europeans. The countries were latinized due to their cultural, demographic, political, economic, social, and religious influences. European colonizers dominated all countries in Latin America, starting from Mexico down to Chile and Argentina. Countries in this region speak at least three main languages, which are Spanish, Portuguese, and French.

The most successful country in Latin America in terms of international beauty pageant competitions is no other than Venezuela. Thanks to the beauty pageant empire built by Osmel Suiza, who established his beauty pageant camp as early as 1970's. Osmel's beauty pageant empire was responsible for producing at least 7 Miss Universe crowns, 7 Miss International, 6 Miss World, and 2 Miss Earth crowns. Catching up are Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Brazil who are now becoming more competitive in this edition of Miss Universe. But most of these countries always ends up in runner-up rankings in almost all international beauty pageants for males, females, and transgenders.

Each international beauty pageant, a group of contestants often penetrate the semifinals round all the way through the runners-up rankings. But most of them are proclaimed as winners in several beauty pageant competitions around the world. You will be surprised if there are no Latin contestants who fail to win in any international pageant competition in a year. All Latina contestants in major beauty pageants are expected to prepare well in every beauty pageants.
