It's a Swimwear presentation and not competition! On January 2017, JPark Island Resort and Waterpark Cebu will host a one-day event of Miss Universe 2016, the swimsuit presentation. On a big Sinulog Festival week, Mr. Arthur Lo, the hotel's corporate liaison officer, affirmed that all candidates of Miss Universe 2016 will come to Cebu for a Swimsuit presentation which includes a Fashion Show that highlights Cebu's talents and designers.

(By the way, it was not mentioned if reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach will come with all the candidates during the swimwear presentation. So, cross fingers and toes Cebuanos!)
