Ever wish you could stand backstage at the Miss Universe Pageant to see what goes on? The Miss Universe photographers have shared a few behind-the-scenes shots as contestants made their way to the stage to compete in the Preliminary Swimsuit Competition. The bottom line is, backstage shots give you a birds-eye view of how fabulous these young women really look… Like Miss Universe France, who is off-the-charts gorgeous in her hot pink swimsuit. Definitely a gal to watch (How do you spell T.E.N.?). And Miss Thailand, who really rocked that yellow bikini (below left).
We can’t imagine being one of the judges for this competition, but on Sunday, contestants will be cut to the semi-finalists as they compete for the title of Miss Universe 2017 during the broadcast on Sunday, January 29. (FOX, 7:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed).
