Becoming Miss Universe: the strict guidelines they must follow

Participating in Miss Universe is definitely not just about looking pretty on the stage and contestants seem more than ready to make some sacrifices in order to get that crown.

There is so much more to pageants like these where women prepare themselves for their entire life to at least get to participate in this prestigious contest. Is not enough to just be pretty or know how to walk in high heels and heavy dresses; but also there needs to be some kind of discipline and passion for what is involved to be considered Miss Universe

This pageant has gained a lot of importance all over the world and as every other prestigious institution out there, they have come up with various regulations to ensure optimal performance of the role involved in becoming a Miss Universe and here are some of them.

To participate in Miss Universe:

Of course, there are some selection requirements in order to be considered as a candidate for the contest. First of all, their age range can vary from 18 to 27 years old and they are allowed to have surgical procedures.

Their personal background must be completely clean from controversies and they must all be single and without any children or plans of getting married and having them; this is because if they win, the next year of their lives has to be devoted to completely being the brand's image and fulfilling all assigned responsibilities so they rarely will have time to keep up with a family on their own.

Finally, they must be crowned as the official representatives of their countries (like Miss USA, Miss Mexico…) so that they assure everyone has gone through the same experience and preparation to live up to the role of a future Miss Universe.

As a candidate for Miss Universe:

Once accepted to participate, the pageant becomes their entire life. They can get to spend more than 18 hours a day preparing and training for the event. They go through so many dress fittings, walk training, answer prepping and intense workouts to become their best versions of themselves in order to participate. To add some more pressure to their shoulders, contestants are only allowed to participate once in their lives on Miss Universe so they need to make sure that their participation is as perfect as it could possibly be.

The next Miss Universe:

But the process does not conclude when the next Miss Universe is crowned. Once the institution has its new ambassador, the winner needs to be fully aware that she will no longer live for herself but for the brand. 

She will spend her next 365 days traveling across the globe, hosting events, performing humanitarian work, and most importantly, being under the media spotlight 24/7. Which can definitely be exhausting for anyone.

Still, not everything is about sacrifices here. The girl who is crowned as Miss Universe gets to receive a yearly salary of 250 thousand dollars, a fully accommodated apartment in NY City, contracts with luxury makeup and fashion brands that will provide her with free products the whole year, a professional team that will thoroughly take care of her image and health, and the beautiful gold and platinum Miss Universe crown with more than a thousand gems valued at 120 thousand dollars. 

Definitely a huge price for years and years of discipline and preparation.
