The Search for Next Miss Belize Begins

Romeo Escobar

The Miss Universe Organization started the search for its Belizean beauty ambassador to represent Belize in the 2018 Miss Universe Pageant. The auditions, which started today and continues on Saturday, saw Belizean women between the ages of eighteen and twenty-seven try out to make the cut for national pageant which will be held in August. National Director Romeo Escobar shares more about day one of auditions and what they are looking for on day two.

 

Romeo Escobar, National Director, Miss Universe Belize Organization

“I think the first day went really well. we had a lot of girls show up that actually want this. We have to inform them that of course whoever is chosen as Miss Universe Belize it is a lot of work. But I saw that excitement in a lot of girls and I think overall it went really well.”

 

Duane Moody

“Your anticipation; they must know that they have to compete in a local pageant before they go out of the country for training.”

 

Romeo Escobar

“Yes of course. Before they even compete at Miss Universe Belize pageant final on August twenty-fifth, she has to prepare for that. And after that, she has to prepare for an even bigger pageant which is the Miss Universe pageant.”

 

Duane Moody

“Are you expecting for girls that have been coming to come with some kind of background or pageantry?”

 

Romeo Escobar

“Not necessarily. I mean we don’t want to discourage anyone from coming to try out because we as an organization have to prepare the young lady that gets chosen at the end. But of course if she has pageant experience that is a plus, but again we don’t want to discourage her from trying out and coming out.”

“Education background…”

 

Romeo Escobar

“She has to have education background or at least on the verge of getting that background. Much more than a beauty pageant this is a huge platform and opportunity like I’ve said before. A woman of substance that’s well rounded—not only physical beauty, but there is internal beauty and also can communicate with people.”

 

Duane Moody

“Interestingly tomorrow, our Rebecca Rath (Bex) will be here for the auditions. Talk to us about that.”

 

Romeo Escobar

“We are very excited that Rebecca will be here and take part in the casting process; helping us select the young ladies that will compete for the Miss Universe Belize title.”

 

The auditions continue on Saturday from nine a.m. to three p.m. at the Biltmore Hotel.
