  • South African pageant crowned the world's most beautiful woman

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters - of South Africa was crowned 2017 Miss Universe from the field of 92 contestants. 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.

The victor of Miss Universe gets a one-year contract with one of the top modeling agencies in the world, security 24/7, an apartment in NY, and performs several community acts around the globe pertaining to public health issues.

Nel-Peters developed a program called Unbreakable that trains women in self-defense.

Louise fulfilled a long-term dream in representing Saint Lucia on the grand stage of Miss Universe. She also works with deaf students and is involved in the development of a new sign language app.

Celebrities greeted the Philippines' Rachel Peters who failed to advance to the final five of the 66 Miss Universe. This is the largest Miss Universe in the pageant's history. "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".

American comic turned TV host Steve Harvey hosted the event for the third time, making several jokes at his own expense.

"I'm not forcefully converted, want to live with husband", says Hadiya
His lawyers have pointed out that the Kerala High Court has said all inter-faith marriages need not be seen as "love jihad". Hadiya had converted to Islam before marrying Shafin Jahan in Kerala.

Answering the same question, Miss Jamaica, Davina Bennett, said: "Sexual harassment is a form of abuse, and no abuse should be tolerated whether in the workplace or in society".

Demi-Leigh plans to share these workshops and help as many women as she can, according to the official Miss Universe website.

"In some places, women get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours, and I do not believe that is right", she said.

"She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for".

"The Universe is not livelier with you as a shining star. 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.
