Live from L.A.’s Shrine Auditoriumon Sunday, July 23rd, it’s the 2006 Miss Universe Pageant as belles from 86 countries warble up a storm, pray for world peace and parade around in their scanties while quietly reciting Snow White’s "mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?"
This year’s crown will be passed on by the 23-year-old reigning Miss Universe Natalie Glebova of Canada and the pageant hosts will be Access Hollywood’s co-anchor Nancy O’Dell and Puerto Rican actor-singer Carlos Ponce.
In Peru, ATV (Channel 9) will be the one in charge for the 2 hour+ live broadcast starting at 8.00 p.m.
According to insider experts, Peru’s representative Fiorella Viñas is not among the early favorites.
"This woman is proud to wear her sash, and she’s doing a great job to get noticed. She’s very competitive but needs to loosen up a bit", one insider opines.
At any rate, the LIP team wishes Miss Lambayeque good luck.
