According to my reliable sources in the Land of Smiles, the format for this year’s Miss Universe Finals will be a mix of all past editions.
First, there will be a Top 20 to be determined by Continents Plus. Five (5) will come from the delegates of Asia/Oceania+Africa. Another five (5) will come from the Americas (including the Caribbean). The next five (5) will come from Europe. And the remaining five (5) will be Wild Cards regardless of continents. All twenty will undergo a casual talk/speech with host Steve Harvey. This will determine the next cut – Top 10.
The Top 10 will go through both Swimsuit and Evening Gown Competitions. Their composite scores in the two segments will pave the way for the ladies with the five highest scores to advance.
The Top 5 will now have a Q&A – again with host Steve Harvey that will secure three (3) of them spots in the Final Round.
The Final 3 will have one (1) ultimate question to answer for the judges to decide on their rightful podium finishes.
Your thoughts, dear readers? I reckon that this format is tailor-made for good speakers among them, and that includes our Queen Cat. It will separate the beautiful ladies from the smart and beautiful contenders who can potentially be excellent brand Ambassadors for MUO and IMG.
