Crucial. The word pretty much sums up the Preliminaries of Miss Universe 2013 which will start live-streaming from the pageant website in just a little over a few hours from now. This is where the semifinalists will be determined. The event that will divide the line between being called to center stage and being left behind this coming November 9.
Miss Philippines Ariella Arida prepared long and hard for the time to shine. And she is not about to let up at this point.
Let’s wish her the best of luck in both the swimsuit and evening gown competitions.
While waiting for the Prelims to start, watch a good video of the National Costume Parade below.
