The rumor has been confirmed. Nguyen Thi Loan was officially designated as Vietnam’s representative to the 2017 Miss Universe Pageant in Las Vegas on November 26.
The finals of Miss Universe Vietnam is set for December 2, which will be after the finals of this year’s Miss Universe so the organizers had to designate a candidate instead. The winner of this year’s pageant will represent Vietnam in the 2018 Miss Universe Pageant.
Loan was a great choice as she is already a pageant veteran having competed in several local and international pageants in the past. She competed for Miss Vietnam in 2010, 2013 and 2015. She also placed in the top 25 of Miss World 2014 and top 20 at Miss Grand International 2016.
