Steve Harvey Returns as Host of Miss Universe 2018

Steve Harvey to host 2018 Miss Universe

He’s back! Five time Emmy award winner--Steve Harvey returns as host of the 2018 MISS UNIVERSE® competition! He will take the stage in Bangkok, Thailand, where the three-hour competition will take place on December 16.

The true measure of a man is determined by how he deals with his challenges. And Steve Harvey has proven that he is a class act, which is paying off big. This will be Harvey’s fourth time hosting the Miss Universe pageant, following his infamous 2015 snafu, in which he erroneously announced Miss Colombia as the winner instead of actual winner Miss Philippines.

The 2018 MISS UNIVERSE® competition will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, and will air in the United States LIVE Sunday, Dec. 16 (7:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. The three-hour event will feature women representing nearly 100 countries with each prideful contestant sharing their ambitions, perspectives and personal experiences on an international stage. At the end of the three-hour special programming, the reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, from South Africa, will crown her successor.
