When the buzz about the possibility of Miss Universe being hosted here in the country for a third time made the rounds of pageant circles, it made sense considering that Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach is Miss Universe 2015 and how wonderful it would be to see the reigning winner eventually crown her successor in front of her countrymen. While taking charge of this responsibility is not for the ill-prepared – and certainly not for the most limited of budget – it would surely add more worldwide popularity for the prestigious beauty pageant to be held in a place where the following is one of the strongest.
Of course, it would require a lot of preparations and mind-boggling logistics if and when it gets to be confirmed. The cost of hosting can really run deep in the pocket. So it would do well if a network like ABS-CBN would partner with the government important individuals to make it happen. Would 2016 be the right time to do it considering that national elections will take place this coming May and the administration will have already spent hundreds of millions of pesos in election campaign funds and the like? Or would it be more proper to have it handled exclusively by the private sector?
Well, everything is still up in the air. For now, let’s look back and watch the 1973 and 1994 Miss Universe Finals held at the Folk Arts Theater and Philippine International Convention Center, respectively.
