2020 Beverly Hills Dog Show Preview
According to NBC Sports, “superstar dogs and celebrities alike” are once again coming together for the annual Beverly Hills Dog Show. Indeed, in 2019, Olympic snowboarder Shaun White participated with his dog, Leroy, though they did not win — the Best in Show was a Havanese named Bono.
Based on the photos of this year’s event, celebrity attendees include Ariana Madix, Caitlin McGee, Camille Schrier, John O’Hurley, Maria Menounos, David Frei, Nastia Liukin, Greg Louganis, Lauren Ash, Spencer Ralston, Brian Baumgartner, Bo Derek, Reece Caddell, Jade Catta-Preta, Olivia Culpo, Ester Dean, Parveen Kaur, MJ Javid & Tommy Feight, Justine Marino, Jocko Sims, and more.
The special taped on February 29, featuring more than 1500 dogs representing 200 eligible breeds and varieties. According to the press release, before the pooches “face off for the coveted Best in Show title, the canine competitors will mingle with celebrity guests and strut their stuff on the red carpet. For the main event, each group winner will walk the show’s unique runway for the Best in Show judge to determine which dog has what it takes to be champion.”
In addition to Bono the Havanese, recent Best in Show winners at the Beverly Hills Dog Show include 2018’s King, a Wire Fox Terrier, and 2017’s Ripcord, a Doberman Pinscher.
The Beverly Hills Dog Show 2020 airs Sunday, May 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
