Miss Universe Will Be in The Philippines

Miss Universe in the Philippines
There is no stopping it now. Despite the infamous Steve Harvey's big mistake at the Miss Universe Pageant last year, where he announced Miss Colombia the winner instead of Miss Philippines, the event will still be held in the Philippines.

The Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT) announced recently that the country will stage the event in January 2017.

"I would like to inform everybody that the Miss Universe beauty pageant will be on 30 January 2017 here in the Philippines," said Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo. "We have a President that comes from Mindanao and our Miss Universe is from Mindanao so I think it is the best time for us to do Miss Universe in the Philippines."

The private sector will fund the US$ 11 million needed for the 65th edition of the most prestigious beauty pageant and it's thought the ancillary Miss Universe events will be held in the country's top tourist destinations Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Boracay, Cebu, Palawan and Vigan. As a result the tourism industry is expected to "gain tremendously" from it.
