Miss Universe 2016: Watch LIVE STREAM Online Video Here!
The 2016 Miss Universe pageant airs live from the Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines on Sunday, and is being hosted by Steve Harvey and Ashley Graham. And Gossip Cop has a live stream, so you don’t have to miss any of the competition. Watch the pageant on FOX online below!
Flo Rida and Boyz II Men are set to perform during the Miss Universe pageant, and judges include Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and former model Cynthia Bailey, producer Francine LeFrak, Bollywood actress and Miss Universe 1994 Sushmita Sen, fashion writer and commentator Mickey Boardman, and Dayanara Torres, who was crowned Miss Universe 1993. The judges will evaluate the 86 Miss Universe 2016 pageant contestants, who hail from Albania to Vietnam. The women will compete in the swimsuit, evening gown, and interview rounds.
Deshaun Barber is representing the United States. After being crowned Miss District of Columbia 2016, Barber went on to become the first woman who’s actively serving in the U.S. Army Reserve to secure the Miss USA title. In addition to her beauty and service to our nation, Barber also holds a Masters of Science from the University of Maryland.
This year’s crowning of Miss Universe is expected to go more smoothly than in December 2015 when Harvey announced and even crowned Miss Colombia before realizing he called out the wrong winner. The title of Miss Universe ultimately went to Mia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines. During the debacle, an apologetic Harvey said, “It was my mistake,” and begged, “Please don’t hold it against the ladies.”
Wurtzbach is returning to her native Philippines to crown this year’s winner. The Philippines actually hosted the first Miss Universe pageant in 1974, and again was the site of the competition in 1994. So, who will succeed Wurtzbach for the crown? Watch the Miss Universe 2016 pageant live stream below, starting at 7 p.m. EST. NOTE: Live stream is longer available.
