Queen of the World! Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters Crowned Miss Universe
World, we have a new Miss Universe.
Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters has been crowned the winner of the 66th Miss Universe competition, beating out women from around the world to take the title at this year’s competition, held live Sunday in Las Vegas.
Nel-Peters, 22, recently earned her degree in Business Management at North West University.
Steve Harvey once again hosted the live show, which ran smoothy. Two years prior, the comedian, 61, infamously announced the wrong winner, naming Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez as Miss Universe when it was actually Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
