Miss Universe 2019 will be the 68th edition of the Miss Universe competition, and will be hosted once again by Steve Harvey, who has hosted the the competition for the last five consecutive years. The final stages of the competition will be held this Sunday, December 8, at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States, and Catriona Gray of the Philippines will crown her successor by the end of the event.
“Stay golden, today is Preliminaries for @missuniverse! I’m excited to host the back to back shows!” Gray wrote in a Facebook post earlier today. “Tune in to the back-to-back competitions live Friday, Dec. 6, at 8 p.m. ET at watch.missuniverse.com. This pay-per-view special is one that you do not want to miss,” she added in another post.
The Miss Universe website offers an extensive description of the competition, including what the organization stands for, what those involved aim to achieve, the opportunities Miss Universe offers, and more. For those who are new to the competition, Miss Universe is run “by women, for women,” and works hard to break stereotypes while offering women the chance to build a successful future. The women competing for the coveted Miss Universe title are actively involved in many charities and philanthropic endeavors and are judged by a full panel of women throughout the competition.

The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) is a global, inclusive organization that celebrates women of all cultures and backgrounds and empowers them to realize their goals through experiences that build self- confidence and create opportunities for success. MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA® and MISS TEEN USA® provide the approximately 10,000 women who participate annually an international platform to effect positive change personally, professionally and philanthropically as inspirational leaders and role models.
The Miss Universe Organization empowers women to realize their personal, professional and philanthropic goals through experiences that build self-confidence and act as catalysts for future success. We celebrate beauty, all forms of it, and provide the tools that help women to feel their most beautiful: ‘Confidently Beautiful.’
The contestants and titleholders that have gone through the Miss Universe system are able to cultivate their personal career goals, advocate for humanitarian issues and be a voice to affect positive change in the world. These women are forward thinking and motivated to not just talk about this change, but to initiate it. They have gone on to high-profile careers in government, business, finance, broadcasting, as well as film and television.
Research has shown the #1 obstacle for women to overcome in reaching their potential in any endeavor is a lack of self-confidence. In doing so our contestants and titleholders have the opportunity to grow as women and be confident in any goal they choose to pursue. While we are a competition, the women who participate also learn to help one another and create a network of friends and colleagues on which to draw support.
The Miss Universe Organization places priority on the importance of getting involved and giving back by providing a dedicated international platform of charitable partnerships. As leaders and role models within their communities, our contestants and titleholders work to affect positive change through volunteering, fundraising and advocacy. During their reign, our winners are given the tools to personally and professionally enrich others by dedicating themselves to raising awareness and much needed funds for philanthropic endeavors.
Be sure to tune in Friday, December 6 at 8 p.m. ET to catch the 2019 Miss Universe preliminary competition, followed by the final stages of the show on Sunday, December 8 at 7 p.m. ET.
