Miss Universe Pakistan organization, through their official social media, have unveiled the details of the upcoming pageant which will be a reality-show-style competition split into several episodes and will also be broadcast online.

Earlier this month, Dubai company Yugen Group announced the acquisition of the rights to Miss Universe Pakistan who will be responsible for sending the first Pakistani representative to Miss Universe.



Production is set to begin in June with the first episode to be broadcast in August. In the show, candidates will be given tasks and challenges such as personality and public speaking tests, interviews and philanthropy work.

Applications for Miss Universe Pakistan opened on 4th March to all Pakistani women aged 18 to 28. A historic rule change at Miss Universe has also come into effect that no longer limits the contest to single women. For the first time in its 71-year history, applicants can be single, married, divorced or mothers. There is also no height requirement.

The Yugen Group already owns the Miss Universe Bahrain pageant and has successfully sent two contestants to Miss Universe. The decision to adopt the reality-show format for Miss Universe Pakistan was to give pageant fans the chance to be a part of the discussion.

The winner of Miss Universe Pakistan 2023 will compete at Miss Universe 2023 which will take place in El Salvador. Miss Universe 2022 R'Bonney Gabriel from the USA will crown her successor at the end of the event finale.
