Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, March 14 2011: Are you between the ages of 18 and 27 as of February 1st 2012? Do you have a burning desire to see the world? A vibrant personality and being at least 163 cm tall is required as well.
Well, if you meet those requirements then the MISS UNIVERSE MALAYSIA ORGANISATION wants YOU!
The world’s premier and Malaysia’s most sought after beauty pageant title in the Universe! The Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation is seeking qualified Malaysian women to compete in the Miss Universe Malaysia 2012 national pageant and a new Reality Television Show.
Featuring major changes to the way beauty pageants are held in Malaysia, the search begins NOW to identify and groom the next candidate to represent Malaysia at Miss Universe in 2012. The first Miss Universe Malaysia 2012 Casting Call will kick off at Sunway Pyramid (Blue Concourse) Ground Floor on Saturday and Sunday (March 19 and 20, 2011) from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. Early birds stand a chance to receive a FREE make-over, courtesy of Xpression Master, Rimmel London and A Cut Above stylists!
“We’re crowning Miss Universe Malaysia a year in advance from now on, to allow for more time to make her SHINE before she competes at Miss Universe,” explained Andrea Fonseka, National Director of the Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation. Miss Universe Malaysia 2012 will be crowned in November this year.
Celebrity, model and television personality Deborah Henry, recently winning the Miss Universe Malaysia 2011 title, will represent Malaysia at Miss Universe 2011 in Sao Paolo, Brazil in September this year.
The nationwide search is the first step towards finding the next Miss Universe Malaysia candidate and ensuring that she continues to work her way towards becoming the FIRST Malaysian Miss Universe in history!
This year also features the FIRST TIME that a reality television show will be used as part of the qualification process.
Here’s how it works:
- The national search will allow aspiring Miss Universe Malaysia’s to nominate themselves through the simple process of having their pictures taken at the venues
- The shortlisted candidates will be invited to meet the judges in Kuala Lumpur with the lucky 50 being selected for the next stage
- The shortlisted candidates will then be placed within a sealed and secured SECRET location where they will undergo training, grooming and challenges – all on reality television (which we’ll reveal the details of later!)
- The final 10 from this show will then be judged on Gala Night with the winner being crowned Miss Universe Malaysia 2012
“But that’s not all! More than RM 200,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs as we’re ensuring that the top 5 contenders receive internships, jobs or other opportunities. This helps them realize their dreams and is another difference of the NEW Miss Universe Malaysia – when you join us, we will make you SHINE!” said Fonseka.
