New group to handle Miss Universe Philippines
Cebu City, Philippines—The Miss Universe franchise in the Philippines will be handled by the Miss Universe Philippines Organization, a new group that is independent from Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI).
For more than 50 years, BPCI held the franchise of the world-famous international pageant. BPCI also organizes the annual Binibining Pilipinas pageant.
The announcement was made on the Facebook page of Miss Universe Philippines a few minutes after 3 p.m. or less than four hours after Miss South Africa was crowned as the new Miss Universe. /bmjo
