Day 1: The Contestants Have Arrived!
All 40 contestants have arrived to Dubai! This is a special year as we have 40 countries for the first time in our 23 year history. John Matthew, Eisha Ramrakhiani and the team Emirates Vision gave us a warm welcome and have been wonderful hosts. We kicked off day 1, June 15, with a sashing ceremony and reception at Melia Hotel in Dubai. We are so excited for this week full of festivities. Today the contestants are off to see the Desert Safari.
