Steve Harvey interviewed Miss Cayman Islands Monique Brooks
Do you have Soundcloud? Well get one on iTunes or the App Store. Otherwise, click on this LINK and listen to the audio of the Steve Harvey Morning Show where he has as guest Miss Cayman Island Monique Brooks.
What is interesting is the mention of the island of Belize as host of Miss Universe 2016 come December. And mind you, it was mentioned not just once, but twice!
Have you listened to it by now, dear readers?
Here is the LINK again. 🙂

I really needed to make a post about the visit of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach to the Philippine Consulate General in New York City. Aside from the significance of the event to the Fil-Am Press Club, it was also the time to reconnect with the individuals who unconditionally supported and will continue to support during her reign and stay in the Big Apple. Miss Universe Organization (MUO) President Paula Shugart also went with our Queen as she met with Consul General Mario Lopez de Leon, Jr. in the same.
Also, I really want to share the photos taken by US-based lensman Boyet Loverita of Pia’s appearance. The shot of our Queen P seating in that Philippine-made throne of a chair really reflects what she has been all along ever since setting foot in Las Vegas last month: Philippine Pride! 🙂

Entertainment Writer Ricky Lo reported this in his Philippine Star column
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.

1974 and 1994 editions in Manila
Pia will be home on the 23rd but just for a week
Mark the dates, Philippines!
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach will have her Grand Homecoming starting on January 23. Two days later, or on the 25th, her Parade will take place around the most important areas in the Metro. On the 28th, she will have her Homecoming Press Conference at the Smart Araneta Center which will be strictly invitational I reckon. In between, she will have endless interviews on TV plus so many appearances that the one-week stay simply won’t be enough to give in to all requests.
But that’s life. The Universe now owns our Queen P for her entire reign. And we should be happy that she will be reunited with all of us soon! She will fly back to NYC on the 29th.
January 23 and 25 are the most important days so make plans as early as now! 😀
See you soon, Queen Pia!
Miss Universe 2016 in Belize? Bring it on!
Looks like the new owners of Miss Universe work real fast. In a recent radio interview with Mark Shapiro (Chief Content Officer of WME/IMG
), he welcomed Steve Harvey as return host of the next edition with the mention of Belize
as the site of Miss Universe 2016. If confirmed as true in a Press Statement from MUO, then this could be a nice setting, although not as nice if the Philippines will take the job.
Belize is a small country that is big on adventures. It has one of the world’s top diving sites in the Great Blue Hole – described by the people at Norfolk as a vertical cave in the middle of Light House Reef Atoll off the coast of Belize, and which offers views of fascinating sea life and geological formations that are unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Without a doubt, this is one destination that will be breathtakingly captured in high definition.
For sure, there will be lots and lots of swimsuit shots with the candidates frolicking on the beach and enjoying all the water activities of a tropical paradise like Belize.
So who’s game for Belize this year? 😀
Minji Lee will represent Korea in Miss Universe 2016
When Minji Lee was crowned Miss Korea 2015 in Seoul last night, one can’t help but wonder why she won over the other more facially attractive candidates in the competition. In fact, her runners-up are relatively more gorgeous. But then again, you look at her all-around assets (photo below
) like competitive height, healthy bosoms and nice lean frame. The girl has got the goods to deliver. And with just the right enhancements, she can be more than 100% ready for Miss Universe 2016.
So at this point, all you need to remember is her face and how she will look like a year from now once she gets ready to compete in the 65th Miss Universe. 😉
Minji has the right height, more than ample bosoms and good lean frame. Let's see how she will be facially transformed for Miss Universe 2016
