Miss Universe Pageant 2012

Miss Universe 2012 Beauty Pageant Contest complete Coverage

The Miss Universe Pageant is perhaps the most celebrated beauty pageant of all times. It was highly acclaimed to be one of the 4 largest beauty contests in the world.

The 61st edition was held last December 19 where 89 official contestants participated.

The Organization had been struggling to find a venue for the year’s competition. For the first time in history, in March, 2012, it was announced that the pageant would be moved to December. This was because the broadcaster NBC could not broadcast the pageant at the same time as the 2012 Summer Olympics and the United States Presidential Election.

Finally, September 2012, it had been confirmed contest would take place at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. It was the fourth time the Miss Universe pageant was held in Las Vegas, the other three times being in 1991, 1996 and 2010.
