Miss Universe 2017 makes SA proud

The performance drew worldwide attention and admiration.

After being crowned as Miss South Africa earlier this year, a group of kidnappers robbed Nel-Peters at gunpoint.

In an interview with Fox News, Graham criticized Miss Universe and its American counterpart, Miss USA, for not featuring a single curvy contestant in their 60-plus-year runs.

Nel-Peters, a graduate in business management, said her disabled half-sister had been among her great inspirations.

Miss South Africa, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, has been named the new Miss Universe.

Police high command and members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) on Monday praised Miss Jamaica, Davina Bennett for her much talked about performance in the Miss Universe Competition.

The event, which was held at The AXIS Theater at Planet Hollywood Casino-Resort in Las Vegas, was graced by top world celebrities, including Grammy-Award victor Fergie who performed her new song "A Little Work". It also featured its first ever participants from Cambodia, Laos and Nepal. Before bringing home the coveted title, Nel-Peters first impressed the judges with her well-thought-out responses to the question and answer round.

The Kerala High Court earlier this year annulled Hadiya and Shafin's wedding, and gave Ashokan the custody of his daughter.

Since she's a trained self-defense instructor, Nel-Peters wants more women to be like her.

The current Miss Universe, Iris Mittenaere from France, crowned her successor to a din of squeals and cheers.

After giving up her title, Pia returned to showbiz and has also been busy working with the Miss Universe Organization. She then made it to the top 10 where she participated in the evening gown competition wearing a pale bluish-gray dress by designer Val Taguba.

Here is more information about the South African beauty.
