And the Winner is…Columbia is the new Miss Universe

Last Sunday, January 25, 2015 all of us pageant enthusiasts were glued to our televisions while over 80 young women from across the globe competed for a large prize package and the honor and title of being the next Miss Universe.

The pageant with all its glitz and glamour was hosted in part by the prestigious Trump National Doral. The property looked absolutely breathtaking.

Some things changed this year. I enjoyed the ability to be able to post a question on Facebook at #missuniverse. One question was to be selected at the end of the night as the final question that the top five would answer. Although, my question was not selected, I was glad to have this opportunity to submit. I quickly realized the value of having an emcee ask the onstage question. There was a language barrier and it was not just the contestant, but the judges as well.

In the end, there were two final contestants vying for the prestigious title that most girls dream about. Miss USA, Nia Sanchez was first runner up and Miss Columbia Paulina Vega captured the title. Vega, a 22 year old Columbian Business Administration major.

From Miss USA to Celebrity Apprentice
I especially enjoyed the tie in on Monday night with the Celebrity Apprentice. The task was to create an interactive theme that would entice people to stay at luxurious Trump National Doral in Doral Florida.

I thought it was a great tie in from the night before at the Miss Universe Pageant.
I must say it is marketing genius. I enjoyed both nights of NBC television. For those of you that do compete in pageants or have an interest in entering one, I encourage you to consider the pageant below. We are a great pageant for all ages and levels of competition.
