  • South African pageant crowned the world's most beautiful woman

For the first time since 2010, Jamaica has secured a top 3 placement in the Miss Universe pageant.

She also said she wants to champion other causes during her yearlong reign.

The decades-old competition is airing live on Fox from The AXIS theater at Planet Hollywood casino-resort in Las Vegas.

From 92 women around the world, the coveted title went to Miss South Africa, whose name is Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. During the telecast, a familiar crown made its comeback: the Mikimoto crown, last used in 2007 by Japan's Riyo Mori.

Miss Colombia, Laura González was the first runner-up, while Miss Jamaica, Davina Bennett was the second.

"As Miss Universe, you have to be confident in who you are as an individual". Yesterday out of the 16 finalists only 2 had higher education, and when Steve Harvey asked of their higher education everyone was surprised as in to how a woman, who is pretty, who can walk on a runway, could also be an engineer. "I've done this a Colombian and I do not doubt that I will do this as Miss Universe".

Grammy-Award victor Fergie and Rachel Platten, best known for her 2015 hit "Fight Song", are scheduled to perform during the show. "THANK YOU!" most likely referring to the outpouring of praise she received for representing the hairstyle people of color have been discriminated against for far too long. I wish she's the one who should have won. Basically, she's a walking pageant cliché.


During the question-and-answer portion of the show, the 22-year-old was asked about what she thought was the most important issue facing women in the workplace.

Solenn Heussaff did not only greet Peters but also all the Miss Universe candidates, whom she called "confident and handsome women".

Yesterday, Miss South Africa was crowned as the new Miss Universe for 2017.

A Good Samaritan saw her fleeing the scene and drove her to safety, and she escaped unharmed.

"In some places, women get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours-and I do not believe that this is right, ' she said". Bennett responded, "The quality I am most proud of is my drive, my determination". Thailand's Maria Poonlertlarp and Venezuela's Keysi Sayago completed the top 5.

Wait, I might change my vote to Miss Canada.

Representatives from Spain, Ireland, Croatia and Great Britain have advanced from the Europe group.
