Today's(18-July-2010 Sun) featured Miss Universe is Miss Universe 1994 Sushmita Sen(India). In 1994, Manila hosted the Miss Universe pageant for the second time. On a display of chiding the local press, the pageant organizers handed the crown to Miss India. Badmouthed in the local tabloids as "looks-smelly during the preliminaries" and "shining above the rest" during the Finals, Sushmita Sen bested
76 other delegates including Miss Philippines Charlene Gonzales(1 of the 6 Finalists) and
Miss USA Lu Parker(Jennifer Smith in Manila Press). The presenters were Bob Goen, Arthel Neville, Angela Visser and local co-host Ogie Alcasid. Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz and Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran-Floreindo,both of the Philippines, were the other co-hosts.
