She's Back! Pia Wurtzbach to Judge Miss Universe 2017
The former titleholder is returning to the Miss Universe stage, but this time as a judge.
Pia Wurtzbach is returning to the Miss Universe stage — but this time she'll be on the judging panel.
Miss Universe 2015, who hails from the Philippines, is a model, actress, advocate for LGBT rights, and a former Inside Edition Super Bowl correspondent.
When she joined the Inside Edition in 2016 to cover the Super Bowl 50, she was a hit with NFL players, who famously dabbed with her during the big game's media night.
Wurtzbach was crowned Miss Universe in December 2015 but not before host Steve Harvey mistakenly awarded the title to Miss Colombia instead. The mistake was only caught once Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo of Colombia was already wearing the crown.
Harvey later apologized, saying, "This was a terribly honest human mistake and I am so regretful."
This year's Miss Universe competition takes place in Las Vegas on Sunday, Nov. 26 and airs on Fox.
Alongside Wurtzbach, fellow former Miss Universe titleholder Wendy Fitzwilliam will judge the competition. Fitzwilliam, who is from Trinidad and Tobago, won the crown in 1998.
They will join TV personality Ross Mathews, YouTube star Lele Pons, America's Next Top Model's Jay Manuel and Fox Sports host Megan Olivi.
The show, which will be hosted by Ashley Graham, will also feature performances by Fergie and Rachel Platten.
