Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who represented South Africa, won the Miss Universe crown Sunday. Miss Universe consists of around 90 women from all over the world who compete in various competitions, like the swimsuit competition, formal wear, and communication skills, where they are asked various questions on public health issues like social media and mental health, terrorism, social movements and so forth.

"Our nation is immensely proud of Ms. Leigh for this tremendous achievement".

She also said her disabled half-sister has been among her great inspirations.

"HIV/AIDS is a very big problem in my country South Africa, so I hope to stand as an advocate for that", she said after the event.

Distributed by APO Group on behalf of Republic of South Africa: The Presidency. Nel-Peters slew the final question and answer portion who promoted the confidence and overcoming of fears especially for women.

This year's edition of the Miss Universe pageant has separated contestants by geographic region for the first time.

The 22-year-old Nel-Peters has earned a yearlong salary, a luxury apartment in New York City for the duration of her reign and more prizes.

Miss Colombia Laura Gonzalez finished as first-runner up while Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett was named second-runner up. A Miss Universe is a woman that has overcome many fears and by that she is able to help other women overcome their fears. "Our Davina left her mark on the world and is an inspiration to other Jamaican young women".

Harvey, a five-time Emmy Award victor, mentioned the moment from when he announced the wrong victor at 2015 Miss Universe. On Sunday, he poked fun at his mistake throughout the night.

Our Miss Universe posted the above picture with Bennett on her Instagram page saying, "On paper she's second but in our hearts she is number one!"

Singer Fergie took to the stage and performed her single "A Little Work" during the pageant's evening gown competition.
