She also dedicates her showing in the upcoming Miss Universe pageant to everyone in her home country. In the second video, she has three other Miss Universe contestants say the words "Pray for the Philippines" in their native tongues.

Before the 2013 Miss Universe pageant gets underway, the contestants took part in a preliminary runway where they donned costumes that represented their countries. The results were mixed, with some being truly lovely, while others are a bit confusing.
Take Miss USA Erin Brady, for instance. Her costume, created by Victoria's Secret costume designer Martin Izquierdo, is a Transformer of all things. Brady looks like a strange version of Optimus Prime from the Michael Bay film series. Brady addressed the costume on her Instagram, writing, "Nothing screams national costume like the first Miss USA transformer. Embracing powerful women to a transforming country that's made up of so much. That's what Miss USA means to me." The irony is the Transformers line of toys originated in Japan, before they were renamed for the United States.
The other costumes range from over the top, to abstract. Then there's Miss Canada, who picked up »
The Miss Universe pageant is underway in Russia, with the contestants showing off their national costumes on Monday.But did Miss U.S.A. confuse the event for Comic-Con?Erin Brady hit the stage in what can best be described as Optimus Prime meets Spandex.

If she ever has trouble, she might transform into a truck and drive off the stage.If you think Erin's costume is crazy, wait until you see Miss Canada's sexy mountie uniform and Miss Great Britain's lingerie getup.

As I rushed into the airport to board my flight to Moscow to help judge the Miss Universe pageant, a familiar request was shouted my way: "Vote for Miss ____ (fill in the blank)." Ever since it was announced I would be a preliminary judge, working with a team to narrow the contest to the top 15 contestants, people from a variety of countries have reached out in any way possible to express why their title holder deserves one of those coveted positions. For many countries pageants are as popular as football in America, or soccer/football globally. National pride is on the line, which means many of the Miss Universe faithful will stop at nothing to campaign for their title holder to take home the global »

Miss Universe 2013 contestant Miss Philippines Ariella Arida has had to seriously test her body to get in pageant-ready shape. In a new interview, Arida explains the strict diet and exercise regimen she has herself on so she can be considered fit for the pageant.
"I have to really cut my carbs and rice. No rice, no carbs, no sweets since December last year. I'm naturally thin, but I have to lose some weight still and I have to tone my body," she explains.
While Arida's exercise routine doesn't seem too extreme -- she attends core classes, lifts weights and has been running and attending fun runs -- her food intake is severely limited. Though she allows herself one cheat meal a week, the rest of the food Arida eats is a pretty strict diet.

The 2013 Miss Universe pageant won't be held in Moscow until next month, but it's already busy making waves.
Andy Cohen, who co-hosted the event in 2011 and 2012 with Giuliana Ranci is boycotting this year due to Russia's recently passed laws around homosexuality. Cohen says he "didn't feel right as a gay man stepping foot into Russia" to attend, because the "discriminatory policies make it unsafe for gays who live there and gays coming to work or visit."
Now, a Kosovan newspaper, Koha Ditore, is reporting that Miss Kosovo Mirjeta Shala will not be allowed to participate in this year's pageant because Russia does not recognize Kosvo's 2008 declaration of independence.
Last year, Kosovo's contestant, Diana Avdiu, placed in Miss Universe's Top 16.
Miss Albania Fioralba Dizdari is also missing from the official pageant website's list of contestants. Reports say that Albania withdrew after Kosovo was prohibited from participating due to the close ties between the two countries. »

Thomas Roberts and Mel B will host the 2013 Miss Universe beauty pageant, NBC announced today. Both hosts hail from the Peacock family, as Roberts hosts “MSNBC Live” and Mel B serves as judge on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
This year’s Miss Universe pageant will be held in Crocus City Hall in Moscow, and the location for the 2013 iteration of the venerable pageant franchise sparked controversy, as Russia had recently unveiled a slate of laws that banned “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors” and discouraged the public discussion of homosexuality.
The Miss Universe pageant issued a statement in August, noting that the instated Russian laws are “diametrically opposed to the core values” of the org.
Andy Cohen announced in August that he would not return to host the pageant due to these laws, noting that, as a gay man, he “didn’t feel right stepping foot in Russia. »
