The pageant of all pageants is coming.
One of the most awaited global events of almost all the Filipinos out there.
The 70th Miss Universe (MU) pageant is all set to be held on 13th December 2021 PH time while 12th of December in Eilat, Israel as Philippines is 6 hours ahead of Israel.
Miss Universe 2020 Andrea Meza of Mexico will crown her successor making her reign one of the shortest in the history of the pageant as she was just crowned last May 16, 2021.
We can all watch it live from the Red Sea resort in Eilat City, Israel, and our favorite host, Steve Harvey will again be hosting the event so we’d expect some witty and fun things to happen.
An international pop star named Noa Kirel will perform as one of the highlights of the evening.
