The Super Bowl of beauty is about to touch down in New Orleans.
From Jan. 11-14, the 71st annual Miss Universe Pageant will drop into the Big Easy’s Ernest N. Morial Convention Center for three high-profile competitions that will determine which of the 85 contestants will take home the 2023 crown.
This year has some major contenders too.
According to Pageant Circle, representatives from Chile, Colombia, Peru, Thailand and Ukraine are early favorites.
Of course, the U.S.A.’s R’Bonney Gabriel is in the mix as well.
And if seeing these potential future winners duke it out for the one of the world’s most sought after titles sounds like a good time to you, you still can snag tickets.
In fact, tickets are still available for the Preliminary Event and Costume Show, Dress Rehearsal and Finals.
While ticket prices for the Jan. 14 finals are high — they start at $276 before fees on Vivid Seats — you can snatch up general admission passes for the rehearsal earlier that day for just $81 before fees.
