Opisyal nang inanunsyo ng Miss Universe Organization (MUO) na gaganapin ang 70th edition ng Miss Universe pageant sa December sa bansang Israel.
Sa social media ng New York-based beauty pageant organization kagabi, July 20, sinabi nilang tuloy ang international beauty derby sa Disyembre, at for the first time ay idadaos 'yon sa Eilat, Israel. Wala pang exact date ang pageant.
“70 YEARS! The 70th #MISSUNIVERSE competition is heading to ....Eilat, Israel! MISS UNIVERSE will air live around the world December 2021. Stay tuned for more information or visit missuniverse.com,” pahayag ng MUO sa Facebook kalakip ang isang teaser video.
Nagpalit din sila FB cover kung saan nakasaad na sa Eilat, Israel nga gaganapin ang itinuturing na pinaka-prestigious beauty pageant sa mundo.
Sa statement na inilabas ng MUO - na ipinublish ng Daily Online News at ng Missosology kagabi rin - ipinaliwanag ng president nilang si Paula Shugart kung paano napili ang Israel para pagdausan ng beauty pageant.
“Israel has been on our shortlist of host countries for a number of years due to its rich history, beautiful landscapes, myriad of cultures and appeal as a global tourist destination,” saad ni Shugart.
“As we sought an impressive location for our 70th anniversary celebration, it became clear through our conversations with acting Mayor Lankri and the Israeli Ministry that Israel has the resources and demonstrated the commitment to host MISS UNIVERSE in December,” pagpapatuloy n’ya.
“We look forward to deepening our commitment and creating meaningful cultural conversation, connection and understanding through this partnership.”
Welcome naman sa Eilat ang MUO at ang mga kandidatang lalahok mula sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng mundo, ayon kay Eilat acting mayor Lankri.
“The city of Eilat, together with our partners at the Ministry of Tourism, are delighted and proud to host the Miss Universe events and accommodate the 70-year celebrations in Eilat,” sey ni Lankri.
“The new Ramon Eilat Airport has, without a doubt, served as the foundation for Eilat’s opening up to new international opportunities, and the city is ready and willing to host contestants from over 90 countries,” dagdag pa n’ya.
Sinang-ayunan naman ng Minister of Tourism na si Yoel Razvozov ang pahayag ni Lankir.
“We in Israel are delighted to host the 70th anniversary celebrations of the iconic Miss Universe pageant—an event celebrating women’s empowerment, optimism, tolerance and desire for excellence, which crosses every geographical and national border,” saad ni Razvozov.
Hinikayat naman ni reigning Miss Universe Andrea Meza ng Mexico ang lahat na magpabakuna na kontra-COVID para makadalo at makapanood ng Miss Universe pageant sa Israel.
“Being the only Miss Universe crowned during the COVID-19 pandemic has made my reign unforgettable,” pahayag ni Meza na pitong buwan lang magre-reign bilang Miss U. “I hope that the world takes the vaccine as soon as it is available so that, come December, as many people as possible can join the 70th anniversary celebration in Israel.”
Balik na rin bilang host ng pageant ang American TV and radio presenter na si Steve Harvey.
Dito sa Pilipinas ay magsisimula pa lang ang kompetisyon ng Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) na magkakaroon ng coronation sa September 25.
Last July 19 ay nag-release ang Miss Universe Philippines ng Top 100 delegates from virtual screening kung saan kabilang ang aktres na si Kisses Delavin, Asia’s Next Top Supermodel fifth season winner Maureen Wroblewitz, at si Binibining Pilipinas-Globe 2019 Leren Bautista.
Isa sa kanila ang mananalo at pagpapasahan ni Rabiya Mateo ng Miss Universe Philippines crown, at kakatawan sa Pilipinas sa 70th edition ng Miss Universe pageant na gaganapin sa Israel.
