Pakistan making history by sending five models to compete in Miss Universe


LAHORE MIRROR — In a historic moment, Pakistan is making its debut in the prestigious Miss Universe pageant by sending five accomplished models. This unprecedented move marks Pakistan’s inaugural representation in the world-renowned beauty competition.

These five models were meticulously chosen from a vast pool of over 200 applicants spanning the globe. To enhance their global appeal, the contestants participated in a captivating photoshoot set amidst the picturesque Maldives, adorned in exquisite creations by the renowned Filipino designer, Fern One.

Among these exceptional women, one will be crowned as Pakistan’s official representative at the forthcoming Miss Universe pageant, scheduled to be held in El Salvador later this year.

The visionary behind this remarkable journey is Josh Ugen, leading the Yugin Group from its Dubai headquarters. The group also holds franchise rights for Miss Universe Bahrain and Miss Universe Egypt, thus expanding its global presence.

To foster active global engagement and fan empowerment, the Yugen Group has partnered with the voting app Choisely. This collaboration grants fans a unique opportunity to support their favorite contestants. The contestant amassing the highest votes at mupakistan.choicely.com will earn a perfect 10 score, a factor in the judges’ final evaluation.

Anticipation is mounting for the crowning ceremony scheduled for Thursday at 7 PM UAE time, with live broadcast on the Miss Universe YouTube channel. This significant event unfolds amid a month-long extravaganza, as over 60 countries have already introduced their representatives for Miss Universe 2023.

The grand finale, slated for November 18, will witness the reigning title holder, Urbani Nola Gabriel from the United States, passing her prestigious crown to a deserving successor.

Nonetheless, this historic moment has stirred controversy, with some news outlets reporting five finalists in Miss Universe Pakistan. This ignited a heated debate within the country, with renowned scholar Mufti Taqi Usmani expressing concerns on social media, cautioning against potential compromises of Pakistan’s values on the international stage. Caretaker Minister Murtaza Solangi emphasized the government’s stance that Pakistan’s official representatives should be selected by the government, sparking further debate, with both supporters and opponents voicing their opinions.
