This Sunday, Miss Universe 2017 Live. MANILA, Philippines — Excitement was high at the Miss Universe 2017 preliminary events, even as the venue for the national costume, swimsuit and evening-gown competitions was underwhelming.

The Miss Universe 2017 Organization has not released official videos and photographs from the proceedings, so this story is based on eye-witness accounts of fans, who were lucky to be at the events.
The showcase of culture in dress form (and contraptions) at the national costume competition has no bearing on the preliminary scores, but it offers a glimpse into a contestant’s heritage and identity and can propel a candidate’s prospects.
In the swimwear section, the contestants wore Yamamay designs in either black or white in two pieces, except for Misses British Virgin Islands, China, Guatemala, Egypt, Israel and Lebanon; and when there was uproar from her countrymen, Miss Iraq will switch to a one-piece suit at the finals.
The evening gown segment was when the audience knew who among the 92 candidates have the strongest stage presence, and therefore have the best chances to advance to the final rounds on November 26 (November 27, 8 a.m. in the Philippines).
The national costume competition was held on November 20 while the swimsuit and evening gown portions happened later on in Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
With their stellar performances at these events, these candidates are the front-runners, so far. But, because the interviews were held behind closed doors, we have no idea who has the much-needed requirement of having excellent communication skills.
