Andrea Tovar, Miss Colombia 2016 is a favorite for the crown of Miss Universe 2017. She will have the opportunity to represent her beautiful country on January 30, 2017 in the Philippines. She definitely has big shoes to fill after Ariadna Gutierrez's fabulous performance at Miss Universe 2015.
The days leading up to the big crowning moment are dwindling. The 2016 Miss Universe Pageant will be held on January 30, 2017 in the Philippines (January 29, 2017 for the United States). As each contestant prepares for the big day, they keep busy by bonding through different experiences all with the thought of being the top contender at the forefront of their minds. The competition is stiff as each woman is beautiful and unique in her own way.
This weekend, the beautiful candidates of the 2017 Miss Universe Pageant explored one of the world's most beloved white sand beaches, Boracay! It was an entire day of fun, laughter and adventure as the ladies learned how to weave traditional baskets, posed their best for a photo shoot, and paddled their way to the shore.
The 2016 Miss Universe Pageant will be held on January 30, 2017 in the Philippines. This will be the second time in the history of the competition that the pageant will skip the entire year, following the 2014 pageant which was held in January 2015.
Steve Harvey will be returning to host Miss Universe 2016 after his major slipup at the 2015 pageant, when he announced the wrong winner.
