The Miss Universe 2021 coronation night will be held in Eilat, Israel, on Dec. 12 (Dec. 13 in the Philippines).

Rivera arrived in Israel last Tuesday, Dec. 7, to judge for the pageant. She is accompanied by her glam team and her husband, actor Dingdong Dantes.

Recently, she defended herself from those who criticized her being chosen as a judge for the pageant. Despite this, she believes being part of the selection committee is a good opportunity that she would not want to miss.


The Philippines’ candidate in Miss Universe, Beatrice Luigi Gomez, arrived in Israel last Nov. 28. Gomez is hoping to win the fifth Miss Universe crown for the Philippines, following Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran, Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray.  /ra
