According to the reliable sources of Missosology, Las Vegas is set to host the Miss Universe 2015 pageant. Many national directors are now saying that the candidates need to arrive on November 18 for a month long celebration of beauty and grace at the entertainment capital of the United States. The pageant finals of Miss Universe 2015 are set on December 20.

The Miss Universe 2015 pageant will now be under the William Morris/IMG Models since Donald Trump gave up the pageant. Donald Trump was under fire after he made some scathing remarks against the immigrants in the US. He is running for the Republican nomination for the White House. Because of his remarks many countries withdrew their participation from Miss Universe 2015 including Costa Rica and Mexico. Because of the change of ownership, it looks like that the countries who vowed to boycott will now join the contest.

Earlier, Missosology reported that there are rumors that the legendary ex-national director Ines Ligron will serve as president of the Miss Universe pageant. She was the president of the Asian division of IMG Models before. However, Ines denied the rumors almost immediately.

It must be noted that no official announcement was made yet by the Miss Universe Organization although more and more national directors have received informal information with regards to the pageant schedule. Las Vegas has already hosted the Miss Universe pageant for four times – 1991, 1996, 2010, and 2012.
