JOEY MEAD KING to Co-Host Miss Universe Pageant!

JOEY MEAD KING is Steve Harvey's co-host for the 2016 edition of Miss Universe pageant to be held at The Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on January 29, (30 PH time)  2017

Asia's Next Top Model Cycles 2 and 3 host took to facebook to announce that she will be hosting the pageant show.

Philippine Department of Tourism head, Secretary Wanda Teo proposed the idea of having a Filipino woman co-host the event to neutralize President Duterte's displeasure of having Steve Harvey as main host of the event. Duterte expressed hesitation on Harvey hosting the event due to Harvey's wrong announcement of winner during Miss Universe 2015. Last year Roselyn Sanchez co-hosted Steve Harvey at Miss Universe 2015.
