The Miss Universe 2010 beauty pageant will take place this year in Las Vegas, Nevada USA on Monday, August 23, live on NBC, organization officials confirmed on Sunday.

About 85 contestants from all over the world will be arriving during the first week of August to ‘Sin City’ where they will compete for the crown currently held by Venezuela’s own Miss Universe 2009, Stefania Fernandez.

It’s the third time that the pageant is held in Vegas. Its previous editions were in 1991 (won by Lupita Jones, Mexico) and 1996 (won by Alicia Machado, Venezuela).

This year marks the debut of a representative from Azerbaijan. Also, Haiti returns to the contest after a 20-year absence, and Guadeloupe returns after 26 years.

The host hotel has yet to be announced.

The Miss Universe Organization is a New York–based partnership between NBC and Donald J. Trump.
