Miss Universe 2014 Venue is set in Asia

Miss Universe 2014 venue is set in Asia, a reliable source said.

According to a reliable source from the MUO, the Miss Universe 2014 pageant is set to be held in Asia, particularly in the Philippines. The Miss Universe Organization has had numerous meetings with three major sponsors from the Philippines along with the BPCI for the past months and they have gone by far into almost-likely scenario of staging the pageant in the country late this year.

A local TV station, a local airline, and a business tycoon from the Philippines are rumored to back the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. up as major sponsors if ever the pageant will be held in the said country. The MUO is set to strengthen its charitable cause, together with the Dutch development agency Cordaid, in creating a global fund to raise awareness and money to “build back better” and help the Haiyan victims in the Philippines. And they believe that bringing the competition to the country will help them gain more support in their cause and will raise awareness to other global benefactors.

Gabriela Isler, Miss Universe 2013, along with the MUO officers have been closely getting in touch with few Philippine connections to push through the hosting of the pageant. Gabriela herself is even thrilled to visit the country again and is all up of the idea. She visited the country particularly the communities hit by typhoon Haiyan after her reign to aid help and she wants to extend more help. Visiting the country again anytime this year is one of her most-wanted trips.

What’s holding up, as our source relates, is on how costly the hosting will be like. That is why the Miss Universe Organization are doing their best way possible to have the Philippines host this year’s pageant. Other countries that are up for hosting are Brazil, USA, and Puerto Rico.

The last time that the Philippines hosted the Miss Universe pageant was 20 years ago, and their first hosting was 40 years ago. If this turns out to be true, Philippines hosts the pageant after every 20 years.
