Cynthia Bailey: Former model and founder of The Bailey Agency (a modeling/fashion school dedicated to helping young women achieve their dreams). Current cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta. This is what she wants in the next Miss Universe: “I am looking for the full package. Someone who embodies confidence, intelligence, personality, style and grace. And course beauty; inner beauty as well as other beauty.”
Rob Goldstone: Former journalist, publicist and international marketing director. In the next Miss Universe, Rob says: “The new Miss Universe should be someone who uses this incredible platform for the good of humanity. She will not just look confidently beautiful, but have that special x-factor—and I think I’ve already seen a few.”
