2008 Miss Philippines-Universe Jennifer Barrientos is out there nowadays competing (for the Philippines) with more than 80 countries of the whole world for the prestigious crown and title of MISS UNIVERSE.

All eyes in the entire world will be on Vietnam as it hosts the internationally celebrated Miss Universe 2008 Pageant and Grand Coronation in Nha Trang City, Vietnam on July 14, 2008 (daytime, on the Eastern Hemisphere) and July 13 (night time, on the Western Hemisphere).

As the host for this year’s globally renowned Miss Universe competition, which will be simulcasted and is expected to be watched at the same time by more than two billion viewers (online and TV) worldwide, Vietnam wants to put on a show that the world will not forget.

“The Miss Universe 2008 Pageant should showcase the unique national features of the host country (Vietnam) while meeting all the highest standards that the U.S. and global audience have come to expect,” said by Le Xuan Than, a Vietnamese official of the pageant's organizing committee.

    Sana nga manalo ang bet ng Pilipinas! Matagal na ring di narerecognize ang Philippines sa Beauty Pageant na to...Maganda and exotic ang beauty ng Pinay!

    Well, I hope Jennifer Barrientos would make it. That would be another glorious moment for our country. Like Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran, Jennifer could put the Philippines in the world map again, and who knows our country might be chosen to host the Miss Universe next year if she wins. For our beautiful country to be seen by the whole world, well, that's a BIG boost to our country's tourism, and great for our economy, too!

    You are right. That's one great thing about the Miss Universe event and other major world pageants. Any host country is able to showcase anything beautiful, exotic or unique about that country, and its tourism could benefit tremendously from real worldwide media exposures through the event. Hundreds of millions of foreign tourists and travelers from all over the world are enticed to visit that host country during or after the event...
