Miss Universe 2019 will be the 68th edition of the Miss Universe pageant. Catriona Gray of the Philippines will crown her successor at the end of the event.

The pageant will be hosted by Steve Harvey on his fifth consecutive year of Miss Universe.[1]

Background

Location

In December 2018, Filipino politician and businessman Chavit Singson, who financed Miss Universe 2016, stated that the 2019 edition of the pageant would be held in Seoul, South Korea, which previously hosted Miss Universe 1980. He added that he would assist in preparations for holding the competition in South Korea, although the details were not finalized; the Miss Universe Organization had never confirmed this.[2] Later, in April 2019, it was reported that both the Philippines and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil had become interested in hosting the competition as well. Interest in the Philippines grew following the win of Filipina Catriona Gray in Miss Universe 2018, looking to have her crown her successor in her home country, much like Pia Wurtzbach did at Miss Universe 2016. Meanwhile, Rio de Janeiro will be declared the World Capital of Architecture by UNESCO for 2020, and is reportedly looking to host more international events in the city in anticipation of this title.[3]

In May 2019, Richelle Singson-Michael, the daughter of Chavit Singson, stated that the Philippines were one of several countries who were bidding to host the 2019 competition, and that her family's business LCS Group were committed to hosting in either the Philippines or South Korea.[4] The Miss Universe Organization has made no statements regarding where the competition will be hosted as of 16 July 2019.

Selection of participants

As of 16 July 2019, delegates from 34 countries and territories have been selected to compete in the pageant; of these delegates, Hoàng Thùy of Vietnam was appointed to the title following an internal selection by Dương Trương Thiên Lý, the country's national director. Thùy had placed as the first runner-up at the Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 pageant. The remainder of the delegates were selected after winning their respective national pageants. The 2019 edition will see the returns of the Cook Islands, Turks and Caicos, Sierra Leone, Iraq, and Tanzania; Cook Islands has not competed since 1999, Turks and Caicos since 2014, Sierra Leone since 2016, while the others had not competed since 2017.[5][6][7] Ghana will withdraw from the competition after the Miss Universe Ghana organization was temporarily suspended; they will resume operations in 2020.[8][9]
