Miss Universe is now owned by Thai billionaire Anne Jakrajutatip


Chief Executive Officer of JKN Global Group Public Company Limited, Anne Jakrajutatip, has now been confirmed as the new owner of the Miss Universe Organization.

The Thai transgender businesswoman, also known as Anne JKN, made the announcement of full ownership of MUO on social media with the caption "Yes, I own it all, I am the sole owner, and finally, the universe is ours."

This update also just confirmed the recent rumor that a billionaire from Thailand was interested in buying Miss Universe after the news broke out it was allegedly being sold by the previous owner IMG for $20 million.

A virtual press conference will be held with MUO President Paula Shugart and CEO Amy Emerich to discuss this historic acquisition. It will be broadcasted live on JKN18 TV channel, and on Facebook and YouTube this Thursday, October 27 from 10 a.m. (Bangkok time).

Anne made history by becoming the first-ever woman and non-US citizen to own the entire organization. She now has the power to oversee, operate, create and build entirely new structures for Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA pageants.
