MISS Universe Philippines strives to break pageant norms and build a new Miss Universe that promotes empowered beauty with a purpose through its new online series, “Ring Light,” which premieres Sept. 27 on www.empire.ph.
Going beyond preliminaries and the coronation night, “Ring Light” is the first of its kind in the world as it gives pageant fans a closer look at what it truly takes to become a beauty queen.
From rigorous training to fascinating challenges and fun, behind-the-scenes activities, “Ring Light” proves that there’s more to beauty than meets the eye.
Composed of eight episodes, the series follows 50 aspiring Miss Universe Philippines candidates and takes viewers through their inspiring journey to the crown. Each episode will take the viewer through learnings, challenges, preliminaries, and finally, the coronation night.
A portion of each subscription will go to the candidates’ chosen beneficiary as well as partner organizations AHA! Learning Center and WWF. Each Miss Universe Philippines candidate has a corresponding referral code that will directly benefit her chosen personal beneficiary. Fans can check out their favorite candidate’s Instagram page for the referral code and use it when purchasing their subscription.
“We’re very excited to launch ‘Ring Light,’ the first-ever fundraising online pageant series that will allow fans to take the same journey to the crown while making a positive impact,” says Miss Universe Philippines national director and Miss Universe 2011 third runner-up Shamcey Supsup-Lee. “With this online series, we hope to inspire our viewers to find their own light and empowerment and show that beauty is not only skin deep.”
All eight episodes, including five learning episodes, a challenge episode, the preliminaries (swimsuit and gown competition), and the grand finale, will be available to stream on www.empire.ph for a one-time fee of P299. (PR)
