"69TH MISS UNIVERSE COMPETITION® TO AIR LIVE FROM SEMINOLE HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO IN HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA, SUNDAY, MAY 16, AT 8:00 PM ET"
The most anticipated competition in the UNIVERSE has set a date! The Miss Universe Organization today announced that the 69th MISS UNIVERSE® competition will air from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood on Sunday, May 16, 2021.
“We have spent months planning and preparing safety precautions to develop this edition of MISS UNIVERSE—one that will be memorable, special and totally innovative,” said Paula M. Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization. “I look forward to seeing this work come to fruition and crowning a new Miss Universe in May.” The most loved pageant competition will feature leading women around the globe competing in multiple categories, including personal statement, swimsuit, evening gown and interview.
Miss Universe 2020, Zozibini Tunzi is the longest-ever reigning Miss Universe Queen to crown her successor this May! “I always knew that my reign as Miss Universe would be unlike any other,” said Tunzi. “While it was nothing like what I had imagined my year to be, this year has opened doors for me I could never have imagined. I am so grateful for the opportunity to connect virtually with people all over the world and elevate the causes I care most about.”
Seminole Hard Rock’s Safe + Sound protocols follow similar guidelines as enacted successfully during the 2020 MISS USA Competition, produced in Memphis, Tennessee in November. These policies included mask usage, social distancing, quarantining upon arrival and rigorous testing, as well as a working group with others following the same restrictions, in coordination with health officials.
