Posted @withregram • @missuupdates THANK YOU, @MissUniverse. ❤️ And no, this is no April fools joke!
I had to start with this line because in all seriousness, despite the fact that we have less contestants than the last few years due to the pandemic, in my opinion, it’s the strongest group of #MissUniverse contestants we have ever had!! 😍
There will be a top 20 plus 1 extra spot from voting!! The contestants are required to send videos where they ask people to vote for them! They will all have the same script for that video, the only difference being their own country and name! Voting will happen on the MU app through choicely!
Got these news confirmed by my source as well as Miss Universe Brazil @JuliaWGama who confirmed it in last night’s live with @DanyDiGiacomo 💪🏼
Additional: Some other videos that the girls were required to send to MUO are Mother’s Day videos & Earth Day videos 🙂
My hope is that they do away with the continental grouping for the Top 20 and do a proper calling of the candidates with the 20-highest Preliminary scores.
