Miss Universe 2007 Contestants
Miss Universe is an annual international beauty contest, and the title for the winner of the contest, founded in 1952 by California clothing company Pacific Mills. The pageant became part of Kayser-Roth and then Gulf and Western Industries, before being acquired by Donald Trump in 1996. The pageant is run by the Miss Universe Organization.
Miss Universe 2007, the 56th Miss Universe pageant, will take place on 28 May 2007 at the National Auditorium in Mexico City, Mexico. 77 delegates will compete for the title, currently held by Puerto Rico's Zuleyka Rivera.
The pageant will be held almost two months prior to when it was held in 2006, although the event has generally been staged between late May and early June since 2001. Reigning Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera will reign for little more than ten months, one of the shortest in the history of the title. Contestants began to arrive in Mexico on 30 April 2007 and are to be involved in a number of appearances and events prior to the final competition.
