Miss Universe 2010 Pageant Draws Nearer; Broadcast On August 23.

Las Vegas, Aug. 20 -- The Miss Universe pageant, to be broadcast live August 23 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, is becoming more of a hot topic as the day approaches to see who will be crowned Miss Universe 2010.

But who will succeed the former Miss Universe? Miss Universe 2009 Stefania Fernandez says it's clear in her mind who will replace her as the world's top beauty queen.

"I have my five favorites, but I can't tell you. I'll tell you Aug. 24," one day after the Miss Universe pageant, Fernandez said Monday. "It's a secret."

But when asked whether she thought the competition was close or clear, Fernandez said: "It's clear."

Fernandez, of Venezuela, won last year at age 18. It was Venezuela's second straight and sixth overall win since the pageant started in 1952.

Fernandez said at a gathering of more than 20 Latina contenders that Hispanic women are always a threat to win because they work hard to prepare and look good.
