The organisers were supposed to announce the names of the 30 official candidates two weeks ago. They have so far named only 25 contestants in their last social media update on October 23.

A few hours after the announcement of the pageant, the Miss Universe website crashed as over 12,000 candidates logged in to apply. The delegation whittled the applications down to 300 and was all set to announce the 30 finalists.
