News” and author of “The Wealth of My Mother’s Wisdom;”Jonathan Scott, star of HGTV’s hit “Property Brothers,” designer and co-founder of Scott Brothers Entertainment; and Emmitt Smith, three-time Super Bowl champion and the NFL’s all-time rushing leader.

Last year’s winner, Nevada’s own Nía Sánchez, might not be ready to give up her crown, but dozens of hopefuls are anxious to take on the swimsuit, evening gown, and interview categories to take the top spot.

The telecast will also include musical performances, as well as individual segments featuring the contestants in their everyday lives. The winner will go on to represent the United States in the 64th Annual MISS UNIVERSE® pageant. As part of the comprehensive coverage by UniMás, “Nuestra Belleza Latina” 2011winner Nastassja Bolívar will share the latest from backstage and on social media.
