I need not go into the nitty gritty of it all just to explain why the 65th Miss Universe Preliminary Competition is very important. This will determine the composition of the Top 12 Semi-Finalists who will be called first on the morning of January 30. Hence, it really helps to watch the whole proceedings regardless of how.
And this is where the exclusive TV telecast of the event on TV5 becomes very important. Two reasons: 1) Watching it will help you size up the contenders even more, and give that extra confidence to give your personal predictions on who should win; and 2) My sources are saying that there will be no public sale of tickets to the live staging of the Preliminaries. If the plan pushes through, it will be more of an invitational gathering where sponsors, important officials, LGUs and the accredited media are to be given priority to watch.
However, you can still score tickets by joining the promotion of Smart Perks by Smart Communications.

Disappointed? I can understand your sentiments. But if you have a friend (or the friend of a friend) with extra tickets, then beg for one now.
Otherwise, your best bet is to really watch the Preliminary Competition on TV5. The Swimsuit Competition will be aired January 28 at 9:30PM, with the Evening Gown Competition on the following night (January 29) at 8:45pm.
And who knows, your blogger might even make a quick appearance on both telecasts? 😉
