Changes in the Miss Universe Organization
The Miss Universe Organization is now under a new owner which is, Anne Jakrajutatip. She expressed that she plans to be the one who passes the crown to the new Miss Universe. This is contrary to the Miss Universe Organization’s tradition that the outgoing titleholder should be the one to pass the crown.
