The Miss Universe Malaysia Organization (MUMO) is the country’s premiere pageant and Reality TV event conducted annually. Conceived in 1962, and revamped in 2010, it is conceptualized to provide a platform for young, ambitious Malaysian women to represent their nation on the international stage, that is Miss Universe.
Miss Universe Malaysia is the longest running pageant in Malaysia, which has crowned these women who have done Malaysia proud – Datin Josephine Fonseka (1970), Dato’ Yasmin Yusoff (1978), Datin Elaine Daly (2003), Andrea Fonseka (2004), Nadine Ann Thomas (2010), Deborah Henry (2011), Kimberley Leggett (2012), Carey Ng (2013), Sabrina Beneett (2014), Vanessa Tevi Kumares (2015), Kiran Jassal (2016), Jane Teoh (2018), Shweta Sekhon (2019) and current reigning queen, Francisca Luhong James (2020).
The woman who wears the Miss Universe Malaysia crown is not just a “beauty queen” but a role model for young women and an ambassador for Malaysia on the international stage.
