Channel Five Will Broadcast Miss Universe Belize in August

Romeo Escobar

Tonight, we can report that Great Belize Productions/Channel Five and the Miss Universe Belize organization have reached agreement on the live broadcast of the Miss Universe Belize in August. National Director of Miss Universe Belize Organization Romeo Escobar holds the franchise for the local pageant and preparatory work is ongoing.  A number of young women have already been selected to compete and as part of the agreement, the delegates will be introduced this Friday morning, on Open your Eyes, live from the Best Western Belize Biltmore Plaza. Earlier today, Escobar spoke with News Five about the pageant.

“Over thirty-two young ladies applied to be a contestant this year. We narrowed it down to a select group of contestants. So the ladies that will take part in this year’s pageant are all well prepared and equally have a shot at winning the whole thing.”


Duane Moody

“This is a big step since the last pageant that took place I believe in 2016 where Rebecca Rath went out to represent Belize. Talk to us about this journey; what it is going to take to get this delegate ready for the international stage?”


Romeo Escobar

“It is going to be a lot of work and all the young ladies know that. It’s a long road ahead before Miss Universe, but I hope that whoever ends up being the next Miss Universe Belize is ready for that. It’s our job to prepare her to the best of our ability. And after she is crowned Miss Universe Belize, she is going to be training here in Belize and she’s also going to be training in Los Angeles.”
