71st Miss Universe: MUO releases contestants' closed-door interviews

The Miss Universe Organization started releasing the closed-door interviews of the 71st Miss Universe contestants on its official social media and streaming platforms.

This historic move letting the public get access to the crucial part of the judging criteria for the first time will hopefully help shed light on why some heavy fan favorites failed to enter the semifinals.

Fifty percent of the contestants' scores were from the closed-door interview with the selection committee while the other half were from the preliminary evening gown and swimsuit competitions.

Fans alleged on social media that the recently concluded Miss Universe 2022 pageant was rigged which the MUO already debunked and called the false allegations "absurd" in a statement.

It wasn't the first time for the winner R'Bonney Gabriel to face such allegations. The first Filipino-American Miss Universe also experienced the same challenge after she won Miss USA 2022 in Reno, Nevada last October.

With the highest percentage of scores allotted in the closed-door interviews, it became very clear that MUO was not only looking for someone who slays on the catwalk or perfectly poses in front of the camera.

Head over to the Miss Universe's official Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube channel to see how the 84 contestants slayed in their interviews.
