Miss Universe Singapore now open to married and divorced contestants

The Miss Singapore beauty pageant has expanded its criteria, now welcoming all Singaporean women above 18 regardless of their marital status. Women who are married, divorced, or have children can now apply, provided they are over 18 and either based in Singapore or have been in Singapore for at least six months prior to September 1, 2024.

The Miss Universe Organisation has also lifted the upper age limit, which previously restricted applicants to being under 28. However, a new minimum height requirement of 1.68 meters has been introduced this year.

The winner of the pageant will receive SG$10,000 and will go on to represent Singapore at Miss Universe 2024, scheduled to be held in Mexico in September.

Elaine Daly, Miss Universe Singapore’s national director and Miss Universe Malaysia 2003, emphasized the importance of the competition in a statement: “This competition is more than just a crown. It’s a platform to inspire and advocate for causes close to your heart.”

“To all the aspiring Miss Universes in Singapore, my message is this: Believe in yourselves! Be bold, be passionate, and never shy away from using your voice. Work hard, embrace your individuality, and most importantly, have fun on this incredible journey,” she added.

The Miss Universe Singapore 2024 event is organized by Beyond Entity, a Malaysian company, and King Kong Media Production, an entertainment company led by Singaporean actor Mark Lee.

Mark Lee shared his thoughts on the platform: “Miss Universe Singapore is a phenomenal platform offering young women the chance to shine and make a mark not only in pageantry but also in the entertainment industry.”

“We are seeking not just beauty queens but future actresses as well, following in the footsteps of many renowned actresses who began their journeys as beauty queens,” Lee continued.

Cheryl Chou, who won the pageant in 2016, and Rebecca Lim, who won Miss Photogenic and reached the top five of the pageant in 2005, are examples of previous participants who have pursued successful acting careers.

Last year, entrepreneur Priyanka Annuncia was named Miss Universe Singapore.
