MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is not keen on having Steve Harvey host the next Miss Universe Beauty Pageant which will be held in Manila.
The world knows what happened last year when Harvey announced Miss Colombia as the new Miss Universe, when in fact, the actual winner was Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
While it is not up to Duterte to decide who will be hosting the international beauty contest, the president said he will need to have a conversation with the pageant organizers.
In order to appease Duterte, there is talk that a local female emcee will co-host the pageant with Harvey.
Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, sister of Duterte’s predecessor NoyNoy, took it as an opportunity for her to finally realize her long-time dream of being a Miss Universe host. She has sent feelers to Malacañang that she was available for the co-hosting job.
