Miss Universe contest heads to Moscow

LAS VEGAS (AP) — This year’s Miss Universe pageant will be held in Russia’s capital Moscow.

Donald Trump made the announcement Sunday after the Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas.

He added that he would be moving Miss USA out of Las Vegas and to his golf resort in Miami for the next three years.

Trump said 18 different countries were vying to host Miss Universe, set for Nov. 9.

Miss Universe was held in Brazil in 2011, and there were talks of moving it to the Dominican Republic for 2012 before it was ultimately held in Las Vegas.
