Online PR News – 22-September-2010 – – “It is a celebration of universal beauty.

The annual beauty pageant was the 59th edition of the prominent contest and was held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S. on August 23, 2010 in a glittering ceremony that saw the top 84 beauties in the world compete for the most coveted prize in the modeling circles. Far from personal glory, the Miss Universe competition is a platform for the beautiful girls to showcase their national cultures and heritage to the rest of the world in a grand fashion.

“The girls who really succeeds from this event, and wins not just the title, but WINS from this experience is the girl who looks outside of herself and appreciates what she is getting, who she is meeting,” emphasizes Roselie Monte, the Contestant Manager at this year’s event. Farouk Shami (Founder & Chairman – Farouk Systems Inc.) is all praises for the contest and says, “This is actual United Nations! This is actual world peace! This is actual bridging the world together!” Multi-billionaire Donald Trump (Co-owner of Miss Universe) says that by bringing 83 beauties together, Miss Universe brings together all countries, even those that do not go well with each other and it is a real personal honour for him to organize an event of such grandeur. One contestant says, “This is a mini United Nations! It is a chance to get to get know all the different cultures in the world, know that everyone around the world faces the same problems. None of these women (contestants) will be the same when they leave!”
