The Miss Universe Colombia organization is currently on the search to appoint a representative to Miss Universe 2022 and the pageant fanatics have been actively suggesting and wishing for potential names for the same. One of the most anticipated names that had been circling around for a while now is of Miss Universe Colombia 2021 runner-up Maria Alejandra Lopez.

Amidst all the anticipation, the diva has come forward to deny the rumours of joining the national pageant this year. She emphasized that “she can’t” join this year as, first, she is turning 28 this year and even if she can still join the pageant she still has a contract as the first runner up and she has to pay in order to terminate the contract.



The stunning Colombian beauty could have been trying her third time at Miss Universe Colombia; she auditioned in 2020 but resigned due to personal reason. In 2021, she re-entered the competition and with her stellar performance, she was adjudged first runner-up.

With her vast pageant experience, her stunning beauty and brilliant personality, Maria would have surely been a strong contender for the national crown, but her decision is being duly respected and well-received by her heart-broken fans, sending her warm and best wishes for her future ventures.

This year’s delegate, Miss Universe Colombia 2022, will succeed Miss Universe Colombia 2021 Valeria Ayos, who represented Colombia at Miss Universe 2021 pageant in Israel where she finished as a Top 5 finalist. Annabella is an experienced beauty queen and having being a representative of the country at an international platform, she can definitely prove to be a strong choice for the delegation at the Miss Universe platform.
