Venezuela is out of Miss Universe 2018; The economic crisis would leave the country without a candidate

in #news4 years ago

Venezuela is recognized for having women who stand out in the international beauty contests and have won the Miss Universe crown seven times since 1952, the date on which it began the contest. Unfortunately, this could be the first year they do not send a candidate.

International media say that due to the difficult economic, political and social situation in the South American country, Keysi Sayago, currently Miss Venezuela, will not participate in 2018, as it has not yet been able to raise the annual figure that requests the franchise, which in The case of that country is 100 thousand dollars.

It could be resolved at the last moment

Despite this situation of uncertainty, the beautiful girl is still preparing very hard, hoping that it will reach the sum as it did in 2003, when Mariangel Ruiz almost did not participate for the same reason, but finally could cover the expenses in The last moment, just a week before the final.

There is one exception for not paying the annuity: when the candidate of a country wins the crown, the following year does not have to pay. In the last eight years, Venezuela has won the editions of 2008, 2009 and 2013, saving the negligible sum of 300 thousand dollars.

Since 1952, when the universal beauty contest began, Venezuela has hosted the contest with 7 crowns. However, sources say that this year the country can not send a representative to it.
According to TvyNovelas, Keysi Sayago, the current Miss Venezuela, will not attend the contest in 2018 because the Miss Venezuela Organization has not been able to pay the annual franchise fee required by the Miss Universe Organization to accept her candidate.


The figure is approximately $ 100 thousand dollars per year and although the candidate is still preparing, the truth is that the money has not yet been collected and have not been able to register for the beauty contest.
According to the details, the only exception to not paying the annuity is that if a candidate from any country wins the crown, the following year does not have to cancel anything.

As everyone knows, Venezuela faces a difficult economic, political and social situation.

The reality is that it is worrying the situation that this incredible country lives, but many can not imagine an edition of this contest without the presence of the beautiful Venezuelans. What do you think?

Really sad to see the situation in Venezuela. Hope they can come out of it. Upvoted you!

viva venezuela

que triste seria que Venezuela dejara de participar. :(

Grrrrrrrr... :(

Honestly, I don't know how they'll come up with that amount of money. According to Dolartoday, 100 000 USD are 23685400000 Bolivares. How many minimun wages are those? Around 30 000? Venezuela's economy is crazy.

esto es como si Brasil no participara en un mundial

Yo opino que el Miss Universo sin Venezuela no es nada... De ahí salen las mujeres más hermosas del mundo entero
