PETALING JAYA - The time has come once again for Malaysia to begin the process of choosing one young woman, who is beautiful inside and out, to become The Next Miss Universe Malaysia 2016.
The Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation unveiled its top 14 finalists at the Palace Of The Golden Horses yesterday.
The winner will be chosen at the crowning night on Jan 30 next year at the same hotel.
"I think it is safe to say that it has always been difficult to predict a winner until the very end, because the girls can be full of surprises," said the groups' national director, Carey Ng.
To appeal to online audiences, the whole journey of the finalists - including their training and challenges - will be filmed and broadcasted in a series of 31 episodes on the MissUniverseMsiaOrg YouTube channel.
Just like last year, fans can vote for their favourite finalist of 2016 through The Next Miss Universe Malaysia mobile application, which can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store and Google PlayStore.
This year's pageant will also see a unique partnership between the organisers and the Malaysia AIDS Foundation, where part of the proceeds raised through Miss Universe Malaysia events will be channelled to the foundation.
