This awesome beauty who recently received her degree in Business Management from North West University, absolutely smashed the interview rounds especially when she very bravely advocated women’s salary rights when she said, “In some places, women get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job and working the same hours and I do not believe that is right.”

Making all women proud with that statement she also wowed the audience with her ‘Final Word’ round answer to the question, What quality in yourself are you most proud of and how will you apply that to your time as Miss Universe? To which Miss South Africa gave a both intelligent and emotional answer:

Miss Universe is a woman who has overcome many fears, and by that she is able to help many women overcome their fears. She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for, and I think that is exactly who I am.” This answer stunned everyone and is surely one of the reasons she was crowned champion.

The event was judged the a variety of judges including former 1998 Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam and the 2015 Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, YouTube star Lele Pons, Fox Sports 1 TV host, Megan Olivi, Professional and popular hairstylist Farouk Shami and Jay Manuel.

The top 10 finalists included were from USA, Brazil, Venezuela, Thailand, Philippines, Canada, Spain, Jamaica, and Colombia and of course South Africa. The second runner-up was Miss Jamaica and the first runner-up was Miss Colombia.

She was crowned Miss Universe by the 2016 Miss Universe from France, the lovely Iris Mittenaere. The main host was Comedian TV host Steve Harvey and Plus size model Ashley Graham was the backstage host. The performing musical artists were Fergie and Rachel Platten.
