Hinirang si Miss India Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu bilang Miss Universe 2022 sa Eilat, Israel, noong December 13, 2021.

Matatagalan pa ang pagsasalin niya ng kanyang korona dahil sa desisyon ng Miss Universe Organization na idaos ang 71st edition ng sikat na international beauty pageant sa first quarter ng 2023.

Ang Filipino-Italian beauty queen na si Celeste Cortesi ang official representative ng Pilipinas sa 71st Miss Universe kaya may sapat na panahon pa siya para maghanda sa patimpalak na kanyang lalahukan.

Simula sa susunod na taon, marami na ang mga pagbabago na mangyayari sa Miss Universe dahil tatanggap na sila ng mga kandidatang may mga asawa at mga anak.

Pero ang pinakamalaking balita, ibinebenta na ng businessman na si Ari Emanuel ang Miss Universe sa halagang US$20 million.

Sa kasamaang-palad, nahihirapan si Emanuel na maghanap ng bibili sa Miss Universe.

Ayon sa report ng New York Post, “Famed superagent Ari Emanuel’s Endeavor is having an ugly time trying to find a buyer for his struggling beauty pageant business, and refuses to chop the price.

“Emanuel, the inspiration for fictional Hollywood agent Ari Gold in HBO’s hit show 'Entourage,' has been shopping around his Miss Universe business for the last six months for $20 million, with no luck, a source with knowledge said.

“The hard-charging CEO of Endeavor, which owns the Ultimate Fighting Championship and the William Morris Talent Agency, snapped up the beauty pageant organization from Donald Trump in 2015 ahead of his presidential bid.

“Although the sale price was not disclosed, financial statements related to Trump’s political campaign said the organization was worth between $5 million and $25 million and had $3.4 million in revenue.

A person familiar with Miss Universe’s financial situation told The Post the organization — which includes Miss USA and Miss Teen USA events — books $2 million in losses annually, while generating revenue between $7 million and $9 million.

“Emanuel has been trying to woo foreign investors based in Asia and South America, the sources said. A person familiar with Endeavor’s thinking said in order to offload the asset, the price of Miss Universe may be lowered a little, but not much.

“The mogul doesn’t like 'admitting' he 'lost money' on anything, so the price likely won’t be dropped “enough,” the person added.”

Ang businessman at politician na si Luis “Chavit” Singson ang isa sa mga masugid na sumusuporta sa Miss Universe.

Mahilig sa mga beauty pageant ang mga Pilipino kaya umaasa silang baka-sakaling magkaroon ng interes si Singson na bilhin mula kay Emanuel ang pinakaprestihiyosong beauty contest sa buong mundo dahil makatutulong ito sa tourism industry ng ating bansa.
