Calling the Next Miss Belize Universe

The Miss Universe Organization is searching for the next Belizean beauty ambassador to participate in the 2018 Miss Universe Pageant. A team from the U.S., dubbed Miss Universe Belize Organization, has been in Belize since the beginning of the week and on Friday and Saturday will be carrying out auditions for young Belizean women between the ages of eighteen and twenty-seven who would like to represent the country in the upcoming national pageant slated for August twenty-fifth at the Best Western Biltmore Plaza in Belize City. Meet the National Director of the Miss Universe Belize Organization, Romeo Escobar:

“We will start from ten a.m. all the way to two p.m. here at the Biltmore Plaza, Belize; the Orchid Room. We will be here; the whole organization will be here meeting these young ladies who have a dream of representing the country at Miss Universe, but they will represent the country nationally as well.”

“What’s the criteria; what are you really looking for?”


Romeo Escobar

“This is a huge opportunity, it is a huge platform. So besides physical beauty, we are looking for intelligence, we are looking for women of substance, women who obviously can speak about Belize nationally and internationally. At the end of the day, we all want the same thing; we want to make sure that Belize is well represented worldwide. It hasn’t been announced yet, but the finals will take place August twenty-fifth at the Biltmore Plaza, Belize; more information as far as tickets will proceed. There is no exact date for the Miss Universe pageant; we are still waiting on word from the Miss Universe Organization. It could be in November, it could be in December; we don’t know yet. But as soon as she is crowned after August twenty-fifth, we are going to spend a lot of time with the New Miss Universe Belize to train her—not only here in Belize, but also in Los Angeles to ensure that she has all the right tools to represent the country to the best of her ability. This week, the entire organization is in Belize City meeting with the Belize Tourism Board, meeting with the media, meeting with businesses to start those relationships to make sure that we have the support of all of Belize. It is important that all of us come together to make sure that at the end of the day we are well represented and we are seen in a good light around the world.”
