In the pageant's 66th year, more than 90 women from around the globe - including first-timers from Cambodia, Laos and Nepal - took part. She helped develop a program to train women in self-defence in various situations after she was robbed at gunpoint a month after she was crowned Miss South Africa.

Ms. Nel-Peters became only the second South African to win the title after Margaret Gardiner won the title in 1978.

In the USA, dozens of politicians, Hollywood executives and actors, and media personalities are facing accusations of sexual misconduct, sparked by a wave of allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein. 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.

A South African pageant has been crowned the world's most handsome woman in 2017 after she beat some 92 hot and dashing finalists in the 2017 Miss Universe contest.

Kára McCullough of Washington, D.C., who made the finals at the Las Vegas event, asked Harvey a question when she was announced as a top 10 contestant.

Jamaican beauty Davina Bennett was the second runner-up, while Colombian beauty Laura Gonzalez was the first runner-up.


The show was once again hosted by Steve Harvey who, two years ago, made a major blunder when he mistakenly announced the wrong victor. "I believe that men and women should come together and be professional". On Sunday, he poked fun at his mistake throughout the night.

The victor goes home with a yearlong salary, a luxury apartment in New York City for the duration of her reign and more prizes.

"Let us celebrate this great victory of our nation".

"As Miss Universe, you have to be confident in who you are as an individual", she said.

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!"
