In less than a week, we'll again witness a parade of the most gorgeous women this side of the universe. Yup, yup, another Miss Universe pageant is upon us!
The 63rd edition of this annual extravaganza of beauty, brains, and curves will take place on Monday, January 26 (Philippine time) in Miami, Florida. The live telecast will start here at around 8 a.m. So mark your calendars, set an alarm on your phone, pin a note on your corkboard, whatever, just make sure you'll be tuned in!
Of course, don't forget to show your support to our country's bet, 27-year-old Mary Jean Lastimosa. We don't know about you, but we have a crazy feeling this girl is destined to bring the crown back to the Philippines.
Now, to give you a sneak peak of all the awesomeness you'll see come show time, we used our Internet sleuthing skills to acquire bikini photos of this year's participants, then carefully selected below the 15 women who donned their two-piece wonders the best.
This is by no chance a guarantee they'll win something, and neither are we endorsing these fine ladies (#MJALLTHEWAY!); they just look really, really good in a bikini—and we, like you, like looking at women of their kind!
