Shamcey Picked As ‘Online Host’ For Miss Universe 2012

The Miss Universe 2012 that will be held on Dec. 19 at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada will be extra thrilling for Filipinos with not just one but two kababayans in the pageant-well, sort of.

Aside from Philippine bet Janine Tugonon, last year's third runner-up winner in the same tilt, Shamcey Supsup, will also participate in the pageant as online host. Her coverage of the pageant will be seen on the official website

Shamcey said in a taped interview aired on "The Buzz" on Sunday that she was invited for the job via e-mail.

"They want me to cover some of the segments during the Miss Universe preliminary competition," said the 26-year-old licensed architect-turned-beauty queen. Her coverage will include the national costume competition, rehearsals, as well as other exciting activities.
