The Miss USA Pageant now on Fox is returning to the Strip on June 5. It’s expected to land back at Planet Hollywood and is just one month after our Miss Nevada America Pageant winner is chosen May 6 at Tropicana (the Miss Nevada USA Pageant winner was crowned in November).
The annual pageant since 1952 winds up selecting the American entrant for the Miss Universe Pageant. Both were owned by real-estate mogul and Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump until he sold them after his headline remarks about Mexican immigrants crossing the border.
Miss USA was here from 2008 through 2013, then moved to Baton Rouge, La., for the 2014 and 2015 contests, where Olivia Jordan of Oklahoma was crowned July 12, 2015. Olivia returns here to crown her successor.
Steve Harvey served as host for the Miss Universe Pageant in December at Planet Hollywood where he made global headlines for incorrectly naming the winner as Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez instead of Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach, who was actually voted to receive the crown.
Although he is signed to a six-year contract with Miss Universe, Steve won’t have the opportunity to redeem himself at Miss USA. Todd Newton, Alex Wehrley and Julie Alexandria served as hosts last time.

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

  And the winner is... Miss Quasi-Normal. Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines. Even major events like the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was cancelled in 2020, successfully took place in 2021. Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant. The year was also a milestone for Miss Universe and Miss World’s 70th anniversary and Miss America’s 100th anniversary.
