Philippines to host 2014 Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss Earth?

Will the Philippines host three of the Big 4 International beauty pageants?

Although the 2014 finals are already set to take place in London, the Philippines is lobbying to host the Miss World pageant.

After Megan Young earned the Philippines its first Miss World title last September 2013, Miss World Philippines pageant director Cory Quirino is working to have the country host the next Miss World pageant.

Quirino and Young personally presented their proposal to Vice President Jejomar Binay at the Coconut Palace in Pasay on February 6. A meeting with the Department of Tourism was also scheduled on the same day.

Binay expressed enthusiasm for the endeavor, but no final plans have been made. Talking to the press, Quirino said they are on stand-by, waiting for President Aquino to see the proposal. Should their plans push through, hosting the pageant would be another first for the Philippines.

According to the Philippine Pageantry, a Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) source confirmed that there was a meeting between the organization and its media partner, ABS-CBN, with the Philippine Tourism Department. The Miss Universe Organization’s President Paula Shugart seemed happy with the offer and presentation made in the meeting. According to the insider, preparations are underway. The official venue and date will be announced by Donald Trump at the Baton Rouge River Center in Louisiana on June 8.
But another news said that the Miss Universe 2014 has already set the date and place. The most popular pageant will be held on October in Fortaleza, Brazil.
Trump denied that there was already a negotiation with the government of Brazil. The largest Lusophone country hosted the Miss Universe pageant for the first time in 2011 in São Paulo.
The Philippines hosted the pageant, which was held Philippine International Convention Center, Manila, in 1994.

Meanwhile, Miss Earth pageant had been held in the Philippines every year from 2001 to 2013 (except 2010).

Miss Earth has its headquarter in Manila. Carousel Productions Inc. is the organization that currently owns and runs the Miss Earth and Miss Philippines Earth beauty contests. The annual events are produced in partnership with ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation.

Miss Earth 2006 was scheduled to be held in Santiago, Chile on November 15, but organizational problems forced the pageant to move back to the Philippines. 

In 2010, the pagaent finally took place for the first time outside the Philippines. The coronation night venue for Miss Earth 2010 was held at the Vinpearl Land Amphitheater at Nha Trang, Vietnam.

In 2011, the pageant, was scheduled to be held on December 3, 2011 at the Impact, Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok, Thailand but due to flood situation in Thailand, Carousel Productions decided to move the Miss Earth 2011 pageant venue to Manila, Philippines. In 2012, the pageant, is supposed to be held in Bali, Indonesia but the organizers did not meet the minimum requirements on time, so it is moved back to the Philippines. Miss Earth 2012 was held last November 24, 2012 at the Versailles Clubhouse.

This 2014, will the organizers move the pageant location outside the country, or will the Philippines host the pageant again?

Is the Philippines ready to host these three international pageants? Will the organizations give the rights to the Philippines? If not, 2015 maybe. Filipinos can wait.
