The “We’re Skipping the Pageant This Year’ Scandal

Miss VenezuelaSOURCE

Most people didn’t even notice that there was no Miss Universe pageant held in 2014. That’s because the contest was going to be hosted by the Philippines, but fearing the political situation and weak infrastructure, Donald Trump decided to cancel the date and reschedule it in Doral, Miami for January 2015. The November 2013 winner, Gabriela Isler of Venezuela, served 14 months as winner instead of twelve, though reigning Miss Universe, Paulina Vega of Colombia, will only hold the title for 12 months.
