Erin Brady will represent the United States at the upcoming Miss Universe 2013 pageant.
The announcement was expected as Trump had teased on twitter and television about a surprise during the Miss USA 2013 telecast from Las Vegas.
“We’re keeping it totally under wraps” Miss Universe president Paula Shugart said. “In fact, we’re being so secretive about it we’re also going to spring it on our owner, Donald Trump. It’s really going to shake up a lot of unexpected things during the live show — and it may very well change the entire outcome of how the new Miss USA is determined.
“It’s certainly going to keep people on the edge of their seats.”
“It’s a very strong competition this year with some beautiful women, many accomplished women,” she said. “It’s anybody’s game at this point. I’m not going to even predict who will be the first semifinalists, let alone a winner. It does get tougher each year to judge and find a winner; or, let me put it this way: It certainly doesn’t get any easier to predict who will win,” she continued.
It is the first time since 2000 that the Miss Universe pageant returns to the European continent. The 90 beauties are expected to arrive in Russian soil around October 15th for the pre-pageant activities.
