(CMR) The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) announced on Wednesday, September 13, that it has removed the age restrictions across all Miss Universe and its associated pageants.
In its more than 70-year history, the MUO had only allowed women aged between 18 to 28 to participate in the competition.
With the age limit being eliminated, women aged 29 and above can compete in the pageant as of 2024.
“Starting then, every adult in the world will be eligible to join the Miss Universe,” the organization said.
Contestants are now preparing for the final Miss Universe pageant before the new rule is implemented. Miss Universe 2023 will be held in El Salvador on 18 November 2023.
