This years competition is very exciting since viewers all around the globe can cast their votes for their winning candidate, the online voting was made possible by going to the Ms. Universe website, sadly during the competition the website encountered some challenges, must be due to high traffic volume, thankfully a new link was provided to cater for online voting.
Despite of being the 2nd slowest internet connection speed in Asia, every Filipino people did every thing in their might to support Ms. Philippines Pia Wurtzbach, and mind you it was not easy, but it was worth it.
When on live telecast unexpected things are really going to happen, candidates falling on their shoes and some technical issues, this things actually what makes the show more fun, and things like that would make the show remarkably unforgettable, this year the Ms. Universe is hosted by Steve Harvey.
Steve is a funny man, I actually like the way he started the show, cracking some jokes to lighten up the atmosphere, he was telling about 3 things about his life, the day he was born, the day he married his wife and the day he hosted the Ms. Universe pageant.
Unexpectedly Steve made a mistake of announcing the Ms.Universe winner and while the some were mad about it, I just laugh at it, I mean people makes mistake all the time, what important is being a man enough to take responsibility and Steve just did that.
Thank you Steve Harvey for making 2015 Ms. Universe Pageant remarkable.
Congratulations to Ms. Universe 2015, Ms. Philippines Pia Wurtzbach and to Ms. Columbia for 1st runner up and Ms. USA for 2nd runner up.
