The Miss Universe 2014 pageant trailer presents some Filipino home viewers applauding, Miss Universe runners-up from the Philippines Janine Tugonon and Ariella Arida, and the Filipino flag before it asks, “Who will be the next Miss Universe?”
For the past five years, candidates from the Philippines consistently landed a spot at the top five although they are yet to bring home the Philippines’ third Miss Universe crown following Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran’s victory in 1969 and 1973 respectively.
Among the judges during the Miss Universe 2014 pageant coronation night, is the Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, who is currently the only eight-division world champion. He will be joined by reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump, fashion journalist and TV host Louise Roe and TV host and shoe designer Kristin Cavallari.
Set to pass her crown to Miss Universe 2014 is reigning Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler of Venezuela. The pageant will be hosted by Thomas Roberts and Natalie Morales with Miss Universe 2013 third runner-up, who is from the Philippines, as the On The Scene insider. Watch the pageant trailer below:
