Luigi Boria, mayor of Doral, Florida, announced on September 12, 2014, via Twitter that the pageant is going to be held in Doral on January 18, 2015; leading to some hullabaloo among pageant enthusiasts.
Literally there will be no Miss Universe2014 as the 2014 pageant will be held only on January 25, 2015. Since 1960, the greater city of Miami area hosted the prestigious pageant 15 times, more than any other host city in the world. Hence, The Miss Universe Organization and Miami have had a venerable rapport. Reigning Miss Universe Gabriela Isler from Venezuela will crown her successor at the finale of the event. The pageant will be broadcast from the FIU Arena on the campus of Florida International University.
Almost 90 delegates from around the world will vie to become the next Miss Universe with 76 delegates have been confirmed until now. The pageant will be aired live from Florida International University on NBC, Sunday, Jan. 25. (8-11 p.m. ET) and simulcast in Spanish on Telemundo. Contestants will be judged in three categories:
- evening gown
“The City of Doral is experiencing a record amount of economic growth and has gained attention from Fortune 100 companies in the short time since its incorporation in 2003,” “In its 11 years of being an established city, Doral has become internationally recognized for its outstanding commercial and industrial accomplishments,” Doral is a symbol of success and holding the Miss Universe Pageant here will amplify its reputation as a world showcase city,” stated Trump in the press release posted on Global Beauties.
This means for the first time in history the pageant skips a year. However, it will still be the Miss Universe 2014 pageant with the 2015 edition held later in the same year.
