FULL LIST: Miss Universe National Directors

National director of Mexico (Lupita Jones), Philippines (Shamcey Supsup), Vietnam (Trần Việt Bảo Hoàng), Venezuela (Gabriela Isler) and Colombia (Natalie Ackermann).

Behind the glamorous pageants and contestants, national director's role is essential to the success of each candidate in an international pageant. They are responsible of sending a candidate and make sure that the needs of their representative is fully taken care of: from dress, evening gowns, makeup and even plane tickets.

Being a national director has corresponding cost as well. In an article by Sashes and Scripts, it is said that the Miss Universe pageant franchise varies from country to country. Smaller countries who have little competition in their hometown for a rival pageant could pay around US$ 10,000 for the annual fee. And if a country wins the MU title, they are exempt from paying the franchise fee the subsequent year.
