Miss Universe 2018 Contestants Prepare for Grand Finale

BANGKOK – The final contestants of the Miss Universe 2018 beauty pageant prepared on Sunday for their last battle to win the coveted crown for this year.

Following two weeks of frenzied activities, during which the 94 beauty queens visited temples, participated in social activities and met with the country’s prime minister, the contest will end with a grand finale on Monday in Bangkok when a new Miss Universe will be chosen.

This year’s pageant have been in the news as for the first time in the history of this beauty pageant, a transsexual woman – Spain’s Angela Ponce – will participate in the final.

Changes in the competition rules since 2012 had opened the competition to transsexual women.

Ponce had said her participation would motivate transsexual people all over the world.

The other beauty queens, too, were anxiously waiting for the grand finale, hoping to win the prestigious contest.

Colombia’s Valeria Morales said she had the skills, commitment, responsibility and perseverance and the heart to be the next Miss Universe.

Venezuela’s Sthefany Gutierrez said beauty goes beyond external appearances, and lives in the heart of people.

Thailand is hosting the pageant for the third time: the first was in 1992, the year Namibia’s Michelle McLean was crowned, and the second time, in 2005, when Natalie Glebova of Canada had won the crown.
