MANILA – The Philippines’ very own Pia Wurtzbach will help select the winner of Miss Universe 2017.
Wurtzbach is included in the pageant’s roster of telecast judges, along with TV personality Ross Matthews, Venezuelan-American Internet personality Lele Pons, TV host and makeup artist Jay Manuel, host Megan Olivi, and lawyer Wendy Fitzwilliam, who won Miss Universe in 1998.
Steve Harvey, who mistakenly named Wurtzbach as first runner-up back in 2015, will return as host of this year’s pageant. Ashley Graham will also remain the pageant’s backstage host.
Meanwhile, singers Fergie and Rachel Platten were picked as performers for this year’s pageant.
The Miss Universe 2017 pageant will be held in Las Vegas on November 27 (Manila time).
The Philippines’ representative, Rachel Peters, is hoping to win the fourth Miss Universe crown for the country.
