Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe in Atlanta, Georgia. And last December 9, 2020, she celebrated a year of wearing the crown. Every week and month from hereon now will just be icing on the cake till she meets her successor in 2021.
The reign may have been short of funfare and year-long travels. But Zozi made the best out of a 2020 ridden with the global pandemic and stay-at-home mandates. Watch the video below where she summarized her stint as Miss Universe 2019 so far.
To familiarize you even more with the faces of the Miss Universe 2019 candidates – all 90 of them – I will post them in three photo grids classified alphabetically. This way, you will have a clearer impression of the ones you like.
Below is a behind-the-scenes video from “A Year in the Life” shoot of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray at Royalton Park Avenue. This is her final pictorial as reigning titleholder before preparing for Atlanta, Georgia where she will crown her successor on December 8.
This is a bittersweet moment of sorts for Cat.
The Finals of Miss Universe 2019 will air live from the Tyler Perry Studios – which just formally opened last month in Atlanta, Georgia – on December 8.
According to the website of the venue, Tyler Perry Studios was acquired by Tyler Perry in 2015. The 330-acre lot is located in the heart of Atlanta on the historic grounds of the former Fort McPherson army base. The major motion picture studio, one of the largest production facilities in the country, showcases forty buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, twelve purpose-built sound stages, 200 acres of greenspace and a diverse backlot. Tyler Perry Studios Fort McPherson is the fourth expansion in the lineage of the writer, actor, producer, director, and philanthropist’s creative empire.

With the Atlanta Marriott Marquis as host hotel and official residence of Miss Universe 2019 from November 28-December 9 (date of departures), take a quick look at the property and guess which parts of it will host the Welcome Ceremony, National Costume Presentation and – perhaps – the Preliminaries?
For eleven (11) nights, this will be the home of the delegates. I agree that this year’s hosting is an obvious downgrade from Miss Universe 2018 in Bangkok. Aside from the shorter competition period, the activities will pale in comparison. But let’s see how things will unreel in Atlanta.
So who’s excited with Miss Universe 2019?
More importantly, who’s looking forward to the hosting of Atlanta, Georgia on December 8?
