These are the Top 18 finalists of Miss Universe Malaysia 2017
After a nationwide roadshow in search of young talents who aspire to represent Malaysia on the Miss Universe stage, the Miss Universe Malaysia Organization (MUMO) has finally revealed the Top 18 finalists of Miss Universe Malaysia 2017!
“It gives me great pleasure to be able to helm this prestigious pageant. A title that I for one have been very grateful to have, and now to be part of this exciting journey once again seeing these 18 ducklings transform into beautiful swans,” said the National Director of MUMO, Ms Elaine Daly in a statement.
“The 2017 pageant will be very exciting to watch. From the reality show to seeing the girls grow and eventually find our delegate to represent our country, all I can say is keep your eyes and ears peeled. It's going to be hip, urban, relevant and real,” added Elaine, who was also the titleholder of Miss Universe Malaysia 2003.
During Orientation Week, the 18 finalists went through an intensive training session where they received a crash course in various areas including pageant knowledge, catwalk lessons, grooming and fitness.
Their journey will be captured and shown over 40 webisodes in a reality show-style series on YouTube by online lifestyle channel, hurr.tv starting November 2016.
The crowning of Miss Universe Malaysia 2017 will take place on 23 February 2017 at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
The winner will be representing Malaysia at the Miss Universe pageant which will be held in the later part of 2017, and she will also receive a cash prize of RM50,000 and sponsored prizes worth over RM150,000.
