On December 8, 2019, the world will see a new queen crowned as Miss Universe.
The fiercely contested beauty pageant will be staged at the newly opened Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, United States, it will welcome for the fifth time in a row, Steve Harvey as the host, and about ninety-three contestants from all over the world have been confirmed to compete.
Australian-Filipino model Catriona Gray took home the coveted crown during the 2018 edition held at the IMPACT Arena, Muang Thong Thani in Nonthaburi Province, a northern suburb of Bangkok, Thailand, taking over from South Africa’s Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
Unfortunately, Ghana has withdrawn from participating in the 2019 edition because the country didn’t organized the domestic edition to crown a queen for the year, meanwhile, Equatorial Guinea is making its debut, and countries like Sierra Leone and Tanzania are making a return back into the competition.
Moreover, Tyler Perry Studios will host the show for the first since the studio was opened with a star-studded ceremony attended by Jay Z, Opera Winfrey, Beyoncé and more. In celebrating black excellence, Tyler Perry named the various studios after people of colour who have achieved a lot and changed the course of entertainment in Hollywood.
