Steve Harvey to Return as Host

With the Philippines nearing the peaking point of it’s popularity among pageant organizations, Thailand looks to be the next “IT” country from Asia. This has now been confirmed with the announcement from the Miss Universe organization of it’s crowning event for 2018 to be held once again in Thailand.
Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is set to crown her successor in Thailand this December. This is the third time the country will host the world’s number one pageant. Steve Harvey will be returning as host. The 2018 Miss Universe competition will air in the U.S. on Sunday, December 16 (7-10 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on Fox.

This will be Harvey’s fourth time hosting the pageant, following his infamous snafu in the 2015 pageant, in which he misread the card and announced Miss Colombia as the winner instead of actual winner Miss Philippines. He returned as host in 2016, telling the pageant world that he wanted to personally apologize to the Filipinos for the incident. He also hosted the 2017 pageant in Las Vegas.
