Manila – President Rodrigo Duterte will not be one of the judges on the upcoming Miss Universe 2016 on January 30 at the MOA Arena. The organization established a policy not to have a government official as a judge, for they must be in the middle-of-the-road.
On the other hand, Steve Harvey who drew flak on his wrong announcement last Miss Universe pageant will still be the main host of the event but he will have a co-host that will be revealed soon by the organization.
Furthermore, 10 candidates attended the pageant kickoff over the weekend. Candidates will be back on the second week of January after their return to their respective countries for holidays.
