Watchful Eyes' Miss Universe 2016 Pre Arrival Favorite Picks

The 65th Miss Universe will take place on January 30, 2017 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines. More than 80 contestants are expected to compete for the much coveted crown. Popular tv personality Steve Harvey will reprise his role as the host of the coronation day with backstage commentary from Ashley Graham.

When someone mentions the Philippines three things come to mind: food, places and festival. These three things very well define the Pearl of the Orient beautiful country of happy people with good appetite for good food. I come up with my pre-arrival choices of contestants leading up to the start of the Miss Universe 2016 competition in January with my description of the contestants with their ideal comparison to Filipino Food, Philippine Festivals and Amazing Places of Interests in the country.

In the end it all comes down to the one who has the most intense and adequate trainings and preparation who will wear the crown!
