Nassau, the BAHAMAS - It's now confirmed: Miss Universe 2009 will be held in the paradise islands of the Bahamas. It's been officially announced by the Prime Minister of the Bahamas this Monday at the House of Assembly, said a press release sent by the Miss Bahamas Universe Organization through its public relations officer, Ms. Monalisa Thompson.
Ms. Gaynell Stubbs, National Director for the Miss Bahamas Pageant, says "this is a dream come true for the Bahamas and could not have come in a better time".
The year's highly contested 2009 Miss Bahamas Universe Pageant will be held in May, as many of the small island beauties seek to serve as the official Ambassador for the Bahamas. The winner will try to accomplish at home what not other Bahamian beauty queen has done in the past editions of the pageant: to advance to Miss Universe's semifinals.
The final international event and telecast will take place at the fabulous Atlantis Paradise Resort, supposedly on August 30 (TBC).
Government authorities believe it will be a great opportunity for the Bahamas to expose its natural beauties to several places around the world, mostly the USA, Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia.
Miss Universe is today the second most watched international beauty pageant in the world, reaching a global audience close to 1 billion people.
Eighty plus international delegates are expected to participate in this year's event.
