Just in case you've missed, tomorrow (January 26, 2017) will be the Preliminary Competition of The 65th Miss Universe beauty pageant which will be staged at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines from 19:00 to 22:00 (Philippine Time). It will be shown 'live' through the Miss Universe official Facebook page with a delayed coverage by the TV5 network (a local television channel in the Philippines). The Preliminary Swimsuit Competition's late telecast will air on January 28, 2017 at 21:30 (Philippine time) with the Evening Gown Competition on January 29, 2017 at 20:45 (Philippine time, also in the same channel).
The Preliminary Competition is said to be the most 'crucial' part of the pageant since this will be the time when the judges will pick the most deserving girls who will advance to the Top 12 Semi-Final Round which will be announced on the Coronation Finale scheduled on January 30, 2017 (Monday) at 8:00 in the morning (Philippine time). Through the Preliminaries, we would be able to scrutinize carefully the girls who have that 'confidently beautiful persona' on stage. The scores in their evening gown and swimwear presentation will be added to their closed-door preliminary interview.
So to all the ladies competing as well as to this edition's front-runners, good luck and all the best. To our dearest Maxine Medina, don't mind your 'bashers', stay focused with your goal and know that the whole country is cheering for you. Make us proud! Mabuhay!
