The name of businessman Alexander Javier Paxtor, who presents himself as owner of the restaurant El Guacalito, Miami, Florida, has sounded a lot on social networks after it was known that he acquired the franchise Miss Nicaragua and will hold the contest in exile. Although in the world of Miami’s show the entrepreneur is recognized, there is little information known about his origins and trajectory.

PRENSA confirmed that the franchise “Miss Nicaragua LLC” was registered with the Division of Corporations of the State of Florida, United States, on April 14, by Alexander Javier Paxtor. The registration document also details as authorized persons – Alexis Gómez and Anderson Polanco, both with homes in Miami and linked to the restaurant El Guacalito.

He was also registered with the United States Division of Corporate Affairs of the State of Florida, also in the name of Alexander Javier Paxtor, with the same authorized persons.

Trajectory with Misses

Nicaraguan businessman Alexander Javier Paxtor, also publicly known as Javier Pastor, according to the website of the restaurant El Guacalito, is the executive director of that business, a restaurant located west of Miami, where Nicaraguan culture and gastronomy converges, according to his own description.

PRENSA contacted Paxtor for various means, however, he did not respond.

Precisely in El Guacalito is where Paxtor has been seen active with the Nicaraguan diaspora carrying out activities and events, including with opponents in exile and beauty representatives. There he has received former Miss Nicaragua, such as Ana Marcelo (2020), Allison Wassmer (2021) and above all Sheynnis Palacios (2023, converted into Miss Universe).

It was learned, through closeness to the businessman, that he took Sheynnis Palacios to Miami when he won Miss Nicaragua; and after Palacios won Miss Universe, he took it back, supposedly to show the Miss Universe organization that he had the money to acquire the franchise and hold the contest outside the country.
Sponsor of Sheynnis Palacios

Once Sheynnis Palacios began her preparation for the competition in El Salvador, Paxtor was widely known for supporting her on her way to international competition. From her Instagram account she called her our future Miss Universe, when she took her to Miami to participate in activities with Nicaraguans living in that city.

However, those close to Paxtor were surprised not to see him in person in El Salvador, supporting the miss on the day of the contest, although it is said that he sponsored a large entourage of Nicaraguans to go to the Salvadoran capital.

From El Guacalito there were several live broadcasts on the arrival of Palacios and the different ceremonies held prior to the final gala. And on the day of the Miss Universe pageant at the restaurant, a big party was set up to watch the event live.

Univision’s show journalist and beauty queens expert Luis Alfonso Borrego (Lucho Borrego), in an interview with People en Español magazine, when he revealed that this Nicaraguan businessman is the new owner of Miss Nicaragua, said that Paxtor is one of the most important sponsors that Sheynnis Palacios had to go to Miss Universe.

More than a month after the contest, Paxtor received from Nicaraguan journalist Ivan Taylor the cover of a Salvadoran newspaper the day after Sheynnis Palacios was crowned Miss Universe. “Pastor celebrates, supports and promotes the Nicaraguan,” Taylor wrote.

He had the competition to acquire the franchise

Lucho Borrego detailed that Nicaragua’s dictators, Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo, along with their daughter Camila Ortega, in charge of Nicaragua Diseña, initially tried to keep the franchise of the Miss Nicaragua contest, even offering approximate amounts of between $50 and 60 thousand dollars.

When the dictators did not reach an agreement to acquire the franchise, it was Paxtor who stayed with Miss Nicaragua.
