Steve Harvey is returning as host

The Miss Universe organization announced on Tuesday, July 20, that the 2021 Miss Universe competition will be held in Israel in December. 

“70 years! The 70th Miss Universe competition is heading to Eilat, Israel! Miss Universe will air live around the world December 2021,” the organization wrote alongside a video of Miss Universe winners on their social media platforms.

However, the exact date for the pageant has yet to be revealed. 

Steve Harvey will return as a host. 

The 69th Miss Universe competition was held in Florida, USA, in May 2021, after the pageant was postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mexico’s Andrea Meza was named Miss Universe 2020. With the 2021 coronation night happening in December, Meza will only have a total of seven months for her reign.

Rabiya Mateo, the Philippines’ 2020 delegate, finished in the top 21. She will crown her successor, the Philippines’ representative for the 2021 Miss Universe pageant, on September 25. – Rappler.com
