While coronation night won’t happen until January 30, 2017, the 65th Miss Universe spectacle is already well underway.
The kickoff party, in fact, will happen on Saturday, December 10 at the Conrad Hotel, with none other than reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach leading the festivities.
At least 10 contestants will be present at the opening salvo of the ancillary events leading to the January 30, 2017 coronation night that will take place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
According to the Department of Tourism, Miss Japan, Miss China, Miss USA, Miss Thailand, Miss Myanmar, Miss Korea, Miss Malaysia, and Miss New Zealand will arrive on Friday and will stay for a week for a ton load of activities, including a reception with President Rodrigo Duterte at the Malacañan Palace.
The beauties, including our very own Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Maxine Medina, will then make their way to Cebu City, which will host the swimwear presentation part of the pageant.
We don’t know about you, but maaan, we’ve had enough of 2016. Fast forward to 2017, please!
