Over the pageant’s rich 67-year history, Bangkok hosted Miss Universe in 1992 and 2005, with Thai representatives capturing the crown twice in 1965 and 1988. Known for tropical beaches and pristine islands, sprawling metropolitan and lavish royal palaces, ancient ruins and lavish temples, Thailand’s colorful history and unique culture is home to one of Miss Universe’s most passionate fan bases. This year, the Miss Universe representatives will have the opportunity to travel throughout the country and experience its different “Go Local” points of interest.
Miss Universe is one of the “big four” annual international beauty pageants – Miss World, Miss Earth and Miss International are the other three. Miss Universe is the second-longest standing international beauty pageant (it was first held in 1952, a year after the first Miss World competition) but many argue it is the most prestigious.
How will the winner of Miss Universe 2017 be decided?
Despite being labelled a beauty pageant, Miss Universe is intended to be much more than that – intelligence and manners are high on the list of attributes that entrants must exhibit. While question and interview rounds ensure the winner is a well-rounded individual, the classic swimsuit and evening gown rounds still play an important part in the decision process.
A high number of followers on social media platforms could show who is the most popular entrant (something that will help in terms of the audience vote).
The Miss Universe pageant lasts two weeks, with a variety of rounds used to narrow down the field. Ninety-two entrants (a pageant record) started in the preliminary round and will be whittled down to the top 16 for the final stages (with both public votes and the judge’s scores determining who progresses). After another round of scoring, the three entrants with the most combined votes move on to the final where viewers and judges vote for their winner.
The winner of Miss Universe 2017 will be given a year-long contract to represent the Miss Universe organisation, luxury accommodation in a New York City apartment (and living expenses), a one-year supply of hair care products and tools, cosmetics, shoes, clothing, dermatology and skincare services, dental services and much more.
The role of Miss Universe is to represent the Miss Universe organisation (and its sponsors), travelling the world “developing and representing her platforms, and raising awareness and funds for charitable initiatives.Watch Now
