Miss Universe Owner: Bali Deserves to Host Miss Universe

Timerilis.com – Miss Universe Organization owner Anne Jakapong Jakrajutatip thinks Bali deserves to host the Miss Universe, world beauty queen event because the Island of the Gods (Bali) has become one of the most popular destinations for foreign tourists.

Therefore, the Miss Universe Organization is looking forward to the plans of Miss Universe Indonesia, and of course, the Indonesian Government proposes itself as the host of Miss Universe, considering that they are fully booked until 2026.

“I think Bali deserves to be the next Miss Universe host if you really want it. However, we have already booked Miss Universe until 2026, and recently I met the Prime Minister of Thailand, and he asked Thailand to be the next Miss Universe location. We received requests from many countries,” Anne said during the launch event of Miss Universe Indonesia in Nusa Dua, Badung, Bali, Tuesday.

Anne, a Thai businesswoman who bought the Miss Universe Organization license in 2022, said that there are many benefits that Indonesia can get if it becomes the Miss Universe host country. One of which is that the event can help economic and tourism recovery after being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“You must be happy that many tourists come here, especially after the pandemic, the economy must rise, which is one way to bring many people here to spend their money here. The best way is of course through the Miss Universe event, because we are the most prestigious beauty queen contest in the world that is only held once a year,” said Anne, who is also CEO of JKN Global Group, a multinational company from Thailand.

If Indonesia is interested in hosting Miss Universe, Anne recommends Jakarta and Bali as two locations for the pageant.

“I would probably recommend Jakarta and Bali, so you can bring in a lot of tourists because when hosting Miss Universe, we also have to think about business,” Anne said.

Indonesian Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno in 2021 said that Indonesia has several options if Miss Universe is held in Indonesia.

Some of these places include the courtyard of Prambanan Temple in Klaten, Central Java, the courtyard of Borobudur Temple in Magelang, Central Java, and Bali.

The latest Miss Universe event, the 71st Miss Universe, was held at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States on January 14, 2023. At the event, the representative of the United States, R’Bonney Gabriel was elected Miss Universe 2022.

The next pageant, the 72nd Miss Universe is scheduled to take place in El Salvador. But so far, the Miss Universe Organization has not announced the schedule of events for its 72nd year of competition. (Eva)
