Hosted by Steve Harvey and Roselyn Perez, the 64th Miss Universe beauty pageant held at Planet Hollywood Resorts and Casino located in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 20 (December 21 in the Philippines) features 80 candidates from all over the world including Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
Miss Colombia Paulina Vega, Miss Universe 2014, passed the crown to one lucky girl today, and we want to ask all of you if you are in full agreement with the winning choice.
Miss Philippines is one of the most popular candidates, and always on the lead, based on online voting and as heard from the audience cheers. She may have asked for help from the Aldub fans so they can add numbers on the online voting, of which it seems Aldubnation is willing to participate, but needless to say she doesn't need too much convincing from the Filipino people as a whole. Why not, since we should all root for the Philippines, and she is a worthy and rightfully deserving candidate.
She looked truly charming in her swimsuit attire portion where every candidate was allowed to personally pick their choices to highlight their oozing looks, charm and voluptuousness.
The swimsuit attire definitely won Pia place at the Top 10. We were already convinced she will be among the Top 15, and is confident to see her at Top 5. Obviously, we wanted her so much as the grand winner.
Host Roselyn even commented that it seems the entire Philippines was there as the applause and cheers for Miss Philippines was always the loudest. She was consistently the highest at the online voting.
Judges were former college and professional football player Emmitt Smith, comedian, model, actress, and producer Niecy Nash, actress, model, television presenter, cellist and beauty queen who won the Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo, and blogger, columnist and television personality Perez Hilton.
Singer-songwriter Charlie Puth, country singer The Band Perry and legendary 4-time Grammy award winner singer Seal provided the entertainment in between introduction of candidates.

I want to show the world or the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart." -Pia Wutzbach, Miss Universe 2015
