The Miss Universe beauty pageant is one of the biggest beauty pageants in the world. Many beautiful women strive to reach this event but they have to overcome a lot of hurdles in order to do so. They cannot have children or be married, they must not be above 27 yrs of age and many other requirements.
ARE THERE AGE REQUIREMENTS?
Yes. Miss Universe and Miss USA contestants must be at least 18 and under 27 years of age before January 1st in the year they hope to compete in the Miss Universe or Miss USA pageant. Miss Teen USA candidates must be at least 14 and under 19 years of age before January 1st in the year they hope to compete in the Miss Teen USA pageant.
CAN I BE MARRIED
No, contestants may not be married or pregnant. They must not have ever been married, not had a marriage annulled nor given birth to, or parented a child. The titleholders are also required to remain unmarried throughout their reign.
Getting to be in the main event at the Miss Universe is no simple stunt. These ladies spend a lot and on a small budget. They have to pay their own airfare, their clothes and even for their make-up.
Save for wardrobe, entry fee and travel. The entry fee can be as much as $1,000, and you need a dress which can cost upwards of $5,000. Hair and make-up can cost $400 per hour. You will also need money to cover your travel costs.
Buy high-quality makeup. Don’t use makeup products from discount stores. Instead, buy quality makeup from department stores and specialty shops.
At times things could go wrong and the real winner might be forgotten and the wrong winner takes the crown. However this can only happen once in a blue moon.
