The 65th Miss Universe candidates all arrived in Manila, Philippines and are currently housed by the Conrad Hotel in Pasay City, Metro Manila. During the first days of the competition, the delegates are scheduled to do fashion shows and tours all over the Philippines. This is to show the world how diverse the Philippines is. Selected delegates were able to visit some pristine beaches in the Philippines such as the beautiful island of Boracay. The ladies are overwhelmed with the natural wonders of the Philippines that melted their hearts.
Along with Miss Universe delegates, national directors of each pageant are also present. They are here to support their respective representatives from their own countries. Aside from national directors, Miss Universe Organization selected some of their staff from Chi, Yamamay, and media department to further grace the event as well as helping the contestants to look consistently good and presentable to the audiences and pageant fanatics. In the coming days, Miss Universe contestants will further visit other island nations across the Philippines. Delegates, pageant organizers, coordinating local government units, staff, and tourists will see more of the Philippines beyond expectations.
|Miss Universe Asian and Oceania candidates analysis|
Let us talk about the Asian delegates in the 65th edition of Miss Universe. Since the current edition is currently hosted by the Philippines, Asia and Oceanian candidates are favored to dominate. The reigning Miss Universe who won last January 20, 2015, is Pia Wurtzbach. She is expected to crown her successor on January 30, 2017. Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina has been carefully and rigorously trained prior to the competition hoping to accomplish a back-to-back win for the country. The question is, can Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maria Mika Maxine Medina make a back-to-back win for her country as the next Miss Universe?
In the plight of Asia and Oceania beauties vying for a back-to-back victory, delegates from other continents seem not to make that happen. Latin American countries are known for their beauty pageant popularity where delegates must have to undergo a comprehensive beauty pageant training activity. Latina delegates are the most competitive group of candidates to challenge the Asian delegates because each country in Latin America requires their delegate to undergo beauty pageant training activities. These include pasarela training, hair and make-up training, communications training, and question & answer training for several months.
