Miss Universe 2023: Meet the contestants

As of today, September 21, 2023, a total of 70 beauties have already been confirmed as official contestants for the 72nd Miss Universe pageant.

With just over two months left until the competition in El Salvador, around 30 more countries have yet to crown their official representatives to the prestigious international beauty event.

Apart from Pakistan's debut, over 10 returnees are expected to take part consisting of Bangladesh, Denmark, Egypt, Guyana, Hungary, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Norway, and Zimbabwe.

The current Miss Universe, Filipino-American R'Bonney Gabriel, is set to relinquish her wonderful reign and pass her crown to the next deserving winner on November 18.

While the host country, final date, and official broadcasters (The Roku Channel and Telemundo) have already been announced, further details of the competition including the schedules and venues have yet to be revealed.
