Eighty-eight beautiful, ambitious women from around the world will gather Sunday, January 25 (8pm n NBC) to compete at the Miss Universe Pageant. It’s normal pageant fare – swimsuit, evening gown and interview categories included. What’s unusual is the panel of judges. World champion professional boxer Manny Pacquiao will sit next to reality TV stars Kristin Cavallari (Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, The Hills), Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Vanderpump (Vanderpump Rules), BBC lifestyle reporter Louise Roe and Cuban-born actor William Levy.
With a net worth of $100 million, Pacquiao is by far the richest judge at the pageant. Lisa Vavnderpump comes in second with $65 million. Expect Pacquiao to sit tall in his chair — he’s used to being #2, sitting in the shadow of the world’s richest athlete, his nemesis, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
