Paradise Island, The Bahamas - The Bahamas Weekly News Team had the incredible opportunity to attend the final day of pageantry for the Miss Universe 2009 competition held at the Atlantis in New Providence on August 23rd.

In this video we will take you to the red carpet arrival at the Coral Towers entrance of Atlantis where we get a few words from Ed Fields, Sr. Vice President, Public Affairs, Kerzner Bahamas, and the Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs the Hon Brent Symonette. Next we take you into the press room, where an exclusive red carpet was set up for international media where The Bahamas Weekly was able to receive short comments from Donald Trump (owner of the Miss Universe Pageant for 12 years), reality TV star Heidi Montag, recording artist Flo Rida, and others including glimpses of some of the celebrity judges for the pageant.

You will also see never before seen footage of the Miss Universe contestants on the beach at Radisson Our Lucaya Resort on Grand Bahama Island in their bikini swimwear as well as excerpts from the Grand Bahama Miss Universe Swimsuit Presentation.

After the big show you will hear words from Donald Trump; and a few translated words from the new Miss Universe 2009, Stefania Fernandez from Venezuela.

The Bahamas made history by hosting this prestigious pageant and The Bahamas Weekly was honoured to be a part of it.
