The 2015 Miss Universe pageant takes place on Sunday, and Gossip Cop has a look at all the contestants. See the photos below!
88 women will compete for the crown in Miami during the 63rd ceremony at FIU Arena at Florida International University. The Miss Universe title is currently held by Gabriela Isler of Venezuela. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Isler won the last pageant held in Russia. The competition typically takes place in the fall, but was moved to after the New Year this time around, so while the competition is occurring in 2015, the ladies are actually considered 2014 contestants.
The United States will be represented by Nia Sanchez (see photo right). As Gossip Cop previously reported, Sanchez was Miss Nevada when she won the Miss USA contest last June. Her victory, however, was not without controversy. Days after the pageant, Sanchez refuted allegations she faked her residency in Nevada in order to have a better shot at winning. Shortly after that, she was unable to name the state capital when she blanked in a radio interview. In happier news, however, Sanchez became engaged to David Boko in October.
Sunday’s pageant will be hosted by Natalie Morales and David Roberts. Judges include Emilio Estefan, Lisa Vanderpump, William Levy, Kristin Cavallari, Louise Roe, Manny Pacquiao, Nina Garcia and Desean Jackson. Nick Jonas, Prince Royce and Gavin DeGraw are slated to perform at the pageant. Check out the contestant photos below, and tell us who you’ll be rooting for! Gossip Cop will have live coverage of the event on Sunday.
