Miss Universe Contestants Attend Children’s Charity Event in Bangkok

BANGKOK – The contestants of Miss Universe 2018 gathered on Monday for a charity event for children in Bangkok following their arrival in the Thai capital for one of the world’s biggest beauty contests.

Representatives from 95 countries will compete for the title in the event’s 67th edition to be held on Dec. 17.

Participants on Monday gave traditional Thai “wais” – or greetings – to observers as they attended an event for Smile Train cleft charity during which they decorated photo frames with messages for affected children.

Miss Myanmar Hnin Thway Yu Aung wrote “We can smile together! We are here for you!” and Miss Hungary Eniko Kecskes in her message said “A smile can brighten someone’s day. Never forget to use your magic power,” while Miss Great Britain Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers wrote “Keep your smile as open and beautiful as your heart.”

The competition this year features its first transgender contestant, Spain’s Angela Ponce.

Miss Universe 2018 will be hosted at Impact Arena by US TV personality Steve Harvey with model Ashley Graham reporting from backstage.

In 2015, Harvey notoriously announced the wrong winner and the crown and sash had to be removed from Miss Colombia on stage and given to Miss Philippines after he realized his mistake.

Grammy Award winner Ne-Yo will be performing.
