This August we will feature all about Miss Universe, the most glamorous of all pageants. Started as a local swimwear competition in 1952 by Catalina swimwear and created the MiSS USA pageant after Miss America 1952 Yolanda Betbetze refused to wear the swimwear that Catalina Swimwear is a major sponsor of the pageant until the competition gained the attention of the international community and propose a bigger competition among nations thus the birth of Miss Universe in 1952.
The first Miss Universe was hed at Long Beach Municipal Auditorium, California on (date). An 18-year old blonde and blue-eyed lass from Muhos, Finland named Armi Kuusela captured the very first Miss Universe crown.She,however,did not finish her reign because after a whirlwind romance she later married the Filipino bachelor Virgilio Hilario but she remained as Miss Universe 1952. The next year, another European was crowned as Miss Universe 1953 in the person of Christiane Martel of France. Miss Universe is also evolving and is passed from one generation to another from Catalina swimwear to Donald Trump. Most winners of the pageant came from Latin Americas, Europe and Asia and a few from Africa and Caribbeans. Miss Universe remains the most glamorous and prestigious and biggest beauty pageant in the world considering the standards of winners, the prizes, the charitable cause and of course, the pageant itself. It is being watched by billions of audience around the world on a live broadcast on television. Several cities and countries already hosted the event including Long Beach, Miami Beach, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Honolulu in USA, San Juan in Puerto Rico, Athens, Greece, Manila in Philippines, San Salvador, El Salvador, Mexico City, Mexico, Seoul, South Korea, Taipei, Taiwan, Singapore, Bangkok, Thailand, Windhoek, Namibia, Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, Nicosia, Cyprus, Panama City, Panama, Quito, Ecuador & Vietnam.
