Miss Universe 2016 To Find Home in Philippines?
If hearsays are to be believed, Miss Universe 2016 might be held in Philippines. According to the paparazzi in Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte has approved the proposal of Wanda Teo, the secretary of Department of Tourism, to have the country host the next Miss Universe pageant.
If this happens to turn out true, the reigning Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach will have an outstanding farewell as Miss Universe on her home turf, and when it is Philippines, it is a big deal as the nation is worldwide known for its love for beauty pageants.
However, there is a glitch in the whole scenario as it is supposed that President Rodrigo Duterte is wishful of having the Miss Universe 2016 edition in the month of May instead of January, which may also mar the chances of Philippines hosting the Miss Universe pageant.
The President opined that other big events will happen at the start of the year, like the Chinese New Year celebration and the Sinulog festival in Cebu and in the process Philippines would not have enough time to prepare for the Miss Universe pageant.
If the deal is negotiated, then it would be the third time when Philippines will be seen hosting the Miss Universe pageant. The last time when Philippines hosted the pageant was in 1994 when Sushmita Sen from India was crowned as Miss Universe.
