According to the Spanish site of Huffington Post, CLICK HERE Telemundo’s Miss Latina Universo has been postponed indefinitely.No reason was cited as to why it was postponed. The reality based beauty pageant is supposed to select an American beauty of Hispanic descent who will compete directly to the Miss Universe pageant.

Missosology has been a vocal critic against the pageant calling it as a form of racism, bigotry and apartheid. Missosology believes that Miss Universe is a competition of nations and that what makes it prestigious and well followed. A Miss Latina Universe competing at the pageant will erode its prestige and more people will lose interest to the competition. Missosology therefore welcomes this news and hopes that such project will no longer be considered in the future.

  1. I support Missosology in the hopes that Miss Latina Universe will no longer be pursued. What the organizers fail to see here is the importance of the sash. All of the candidates take pride in representing their country, their people, and their heritage. It is in some ways a proof of sovereignty. The issue of Taiwan’s use of Chinese Taipei in some editions of the Big 4 pageants as discussed before in Missosology shows us that the sash is one important factor which reflects not only the country’s ability to send and be represented by a beautiful candidate, but also in some cases a matter of political issues and cultural heritage. To have a candidate wearing a Miss Latina Universe sash, in many ways than some, represents the bias that the Miss Universe pageant has posed in its 60-year history. I have nothing against Latinas winning the Miss Universe title. They are beautiful and well prepared. But do we really need to have an American beauty representing the Hispanic decent? Most of the candidates are already multi-racial. And we do not need a separate sash for some of them while some of the countries are still struggling to put their country’s name on their sash.

    • Well done. I agree with you. NO LATINAS IN THE MISS UNIVERSE PLEASE. NO MISS VENEZUELA AGAIN WINNING MISS UNIVERSE PLEASE.

  2. it makes sense; we don’t need a “representative of latinas in the usa” when we JUST crowned a latina miss usa.

    But i have to wonder; if Nevada did not win, would they go ahead with the Miss Latina USA show?

  3. With the new Miss USA from a Latino background, hope that Mr. Trump reconsider and cancel MLU participation in MU altogether. I am Latino and have had so many disagreements with friends about this show. Makes no sense and showcases nothing new when there are plenty of other non-participating countries in MU whose beauty we are missing out of. One USA; therefore, one Miss USA. If any Latina in the USA want to participate then go to Miss USA (in case you haven’t heard of it). Maybe, MLU is for undocumented Latinas only.

    • You are right. It makes no sense at all. Normally, all candidates are scared about miss Venezuela, Miss Puerto Rico, or Miss USA (the most succesfull countries in this pagean), so imagine a NEW LATINA from USA. That will be terrible for all of them. You are right.

    • I’m latina and completely agree with everything you wrote. This pageant actually caused a huge backlash toward latinos, as everyone has rightly been saying “how come latinos are treated with extra priveleges and their own pageant rep?” we are one country, and if you can’t win Miss USA then you don’t deserve a separate pageant based on ones ethnicity to get you to Miss Universe. That is so unfair. What about the many Asian Americans, and Italian Americans, and middle eastern Americans? they are demanding their own separate pageant because they don’t want to be boxed by their race or ethnicity. Latinos shouldn’t want to either.

  4. I am SOOOOOoooo Happy that the silly FAKE-ALITY Show “Latina Universe
    has been cancelled…! Couldn’t be happier…! Those people at
    Telemundo must think the general public is straight stupid. They hire
    these judges, some past celebs or family members of celebs and portray
    like they hand selected these women to participate, and yet the majority
    of the woemn chosen are ex-participants of the Miss Venezuela….. a
    couple of the Nuestra Belleza Mexico..and so on… I mean, REALLY????? U
    mean to tell me that they all have dual citizenship? So why haven’t
    they bounced around from Miss USA to Miss Venezuela then? Or Miss USA to
    Miss Mexico? U mean to tell me also that there are no other fabulous
    Latino Women in the US, than re-*cycled Misses from other countries, so
    a need to fake citizenship is necessary to participate in a fake
    reality show? DeR ISA GOD..!In anycase.. had to get that out..! LOL…
    Thank GOD that mess is on the back burned and hopefully fried to a
    crisp. If they do indeed decide to bring that mess back to the
    table…they Really should consider other nationalities…. Like for
    instance: thank YOU..!

    1. MISS ASIA UNIVERSE
    2. MISS AFRICAN-AMERICAN UNIVERSE
    3. MISS ARAB UNIVERSE
    4. MISS NATIVE AMERICAN UNIVERSE
    5. MISS EUROPE UNIVERSE
    6. MISS AFRICA UNIVERSE
    7. MISS MEDITERRANEAN UNIVERSE

    IF THAT HAPPENS… THEN THIS LIST OF NEW CONTESTANTS WOULD JUSTIFY THE “Latina Universe” SILLINESS…..

  5. I’m sooo glad they canceled this HORRIBLE idea. I’m latina but a pageant giving an advantage and special rights to one specific ethnicity/race/background is WRONG. What makes Hispanic AMERICAN women more special that they need their own rep at Miss Universe? there’s plenty of Asian Americans, Italian Americans, middle eastern Americans. See how silly it sounds to form all these brackets? That’s why we have ONE pageant called Miss USA where women of all various backgrounds compete and eventually one of them wins, and that winner should be the ONLY representative from the United States.
