Miss Universe 2017: India loses, South Africa wins

After a scary robbery at gunpoint Miss South Africa went on to be crowned Miss Universe

Sophia Dominguez-Heithoff shines in her silvery Sherri Hill gown at the 2017 Miss Universe Pageant held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Sunday night (November 26) in Las Vegas.

It was gathered that ninety-two women from around the world participated in the decades-old competition.

Nel-Peters is from the South African coastal community of Sedgefield in the Western Cape province and helped develop a program to train women in self-defense after she was robbed at gunpoint one month after being crowned Miss South Africa.

Along with the title, Nel-Peters gets a yearlong salary, luxury apartment in New York City for a year and a host of prizes.

When asked to name the most important issue women face in the workplace, Nel-Peters said the lack of equal pay.

Shortly after walking onto the stage with her short Afro style, Twitter was abuzz with myriad complimentary comments, such as, "All of that natural hair, melanated black girl magic!", and "MISS JAMAICA'S AFRO IS GIVING ME ALL TYPES OF LIFE!"

Several media men also reacted to the Top 10 finish of the Bicolana beauty queen and why she did advance further.

Conor McGregor Rumors: Who Will the Current UFC Lightweight Champion Fight Next?
A third bout between the two outspoken and unpredictable fighters could make tons of money and it remains an option for McGregor. Instead of Nurmagomedov, Ferguson defeated Kevin Lee at UFC 216 to become the interim lightweight champion.

Demi-Leigh plans to share these workshops and help as many women as she can, according to the official Miss Universe website. "And as a radio chemist, I advocate for so many children in S.T.E.M. and women in leadership positions and that's the mission of a Miss Universe".

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. "More than your poise and beauty, you are a cut above the rest with your grace and elegance that exemplifies a true woman of substance and an inspiring Filipina", Araneta said.

Winning first runner-up was Colombian actress Laura Gonzales Ospina.

Current Miss Universe Iris Mittenaere from France will crown her successor. "'I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world", she said.

TV host Steve Harvey redeemed himself this year after the 2015 blooper in which he named the wrong contestant as the victor.

"The Universe is now brighter with you as a shining star".
