Miss Universe

After a much talked about Miss World last week, another equally awaited pageant took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, yesterday. And what an evening it was!!! A star-studded event with one face prettier than the next, complete with striking personalities and benevolent hearts – the Miss Universe pageant was an amazing experience to live. Nevada played host to about 100 women representing their counties across the globe gathered to compete with each other for the 2017 Miss Universe crown.

As the finalists took to the stage, it grew pretty clear that the crowd was rooting for Miss Jamaica, the very beautiful 21-year-old Davina Bennett, and was heartbroken when she was announced as the runner-up.

The very coveted crown went to the South African beauty Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters who had a heartwarming smile. During the Q&A round, the newly crowned Miss Universe was asked what quality in herself was she most proud of and how will she apply that quality to her time as Miss Universe. According to her, as the Miss Universe one has to be confident about who one is as an individual and a Miss Universe was one who had overcome many fears and so she would be able to inspire other women to overcome their fears too.

The winner not only won her hearts across the globe but also a year-long salary, a palatial luxury apartment in the heart of New York City for a year and hoard of other prizes along with the crown of course!

Unlike the Miss World pageant, organizers of Miss Universe have yet to eliminate the bikini or bathing suit round. We couldn’t turn away our gaze for the slightest second during the said round. We can take an educated guess that there is way more hard work and sweat happening in the gym that goes into chiseling a body like that.
