Will Marian Rivera be part of the selection committee in the 70th Miss Universe pageant? Fans speculate that the actress will serve as a judge in the competition after she called herself “honored.”

Rivera appeared to have teased that she will be a judge for Miss Universe 2021 after she showed a photo of herself on her Instagram page today, Dec. 1. The Kapuso star looked stunning in a red off-shoulder dress for a glam shoot by Mark Nicdao.

“Honored,” Rivera said, accompanied by a crown and universe emoji.

Neither Rivera nor the Miss Universe Organization has confirmed whether the actress is going to be part of the beauty pageant’s selection committee.

If Rivera is indeed going to be part of Miss Universe 2021’s selection committee, she would not be the first Filipino to take on the role. Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach was chosen as a judge in 2017, while Broadway star Lea Salonga was part of the panel of judges in Miss Universe 2011.

The 70th Miss Universe pageant will be held in Israel on Dec. 12. The panel of judges is usually announced ahead of the competition’s finals.

Miss Universe will push through in Israel despite the travel restrictions in the country in response to the emergence of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. Israel’s tourism minister, Yoel Razvozov, assured that participants in the pageant will be subject to various precautionary measures.

The Philippines’ delegate to the Miss Universe, Beatrice Luigi Gomez, flew to Israel last Nov. 27. She tested negative for the coronavirus upon arrival in Jerusalem.  /ra
