The long-awaited Miss Universe, the most famous beauty pageant in the world, this year will have its 69th edition from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino located in the town of Hollywood, in Miami, Florida, on Sunday, May 16, 2021 .
Through a video on the Instagram account, published on March 3 of this year, the Miss Universe organization made the official announcement that the reign would take place this year, after the event was canceled in 2020 due to to the health crisis caused by the Covid-19 virus pandemic.
“The moment we’ve all been waiting for,” the organization wrote in the description.
Thus, the contest will be broadcast in 160 countries and territories of the world, and in this edition after a year and a half without being held, the South African Miss Universe, who contested the crown with the Puerto Rican Madison Anderson, and the Mexican Sofía Aragón in the city from Atlanta in 2019, will be in charge of delivering the crown and scepter to her successor.
This time, in the competition to win the crown of the most beautiful woman in the universe, 74 participants from all the continents of the world will show off their beauty, and all their attitudes, as the jury will be attentive when it comes to qualifying them, evaluating in addition to its beauty, its attributes of personality, intelligence, bearing, communication, security and abilities.
