LOOK Miss Universe 2017 to be Held in Phoenix, Arizona on November 26?

The host city of Miss Universe 2017 is Phoenix, Arizona! This is still unofficial but that’s the buzz on the right now. The 66th Miss Universe is coming home to the USA!

Earlier, there were reports that Australia was bidding to become the next Miss Universe host. In fact, it was rumored that Australia wanted to host the pageant for two consecutive years. But nothing came out of that rumor. Nothing materialized (probably due to the hefty price tag).

Then, a couple of months ago, Miss Universe 2017 was also offered to the Philippines after its successful hosting of Miss Universe 2016 last January. Sponsors for the pageant have already committed to help the government in hosting the event for the second consecutive year.

The venue for the 66th Miss Universe in Manila was even reserved already! However, the Philippines eventually begged off due to time constraints.

Now comes the rumor that Phoenix, Arizona will be the host city. Hopefully, it’s true. Because with only a few months left in 2017, Miss Universe will be pressed for time to schedule a pageant elsewhere.

Is it Phoenix, Arizona? Let’s wait for the official announcement from Miss Universe Organization.
