The Miss Universe pageant aired on Sunday night, crowning Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters as the victor out of over 90 contestants at the AXIS theater at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

Ninety-two women from around the world participated in the decades-old competition.

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

LAS VEGAS-Beauties from across the globe converged in Las Vegas Sunday (Monday in Manila), where Miss South Africa was crowned Miss Universe.

Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett said men and women should come together to make sure no form of abuse, including sexual harassment, is tolerated.

South Africa's Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters won the crown while Colombia's Laura González Ospina was first runner-up. Many controversies have risen with the requirements because many believe, that just like a teacher is required to have a degree to teach students or a counselor requires a masters to counsel someone, Miss Universe should require education so the crowning Miss Universe can fulfill her global duties of educating the world on public health issues at the best of her abilities.

Davina Bennett, Miss Universe Jamaica 2017, finished in 3rd place at the final of the Miss Universe which was held tonight in Las Vegas.

Did you watch this year's Miss Universe pageant?

TV host Steve Harvey redeemed himself this year after the 2015 blooper in which he named the wrong contestant as the victor. "So, you can sit here and act like you didn't see what Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway did, but it got me off the hook".

Aside from her Afro, she dazzled in her yellow evening gown and was also solid in the question and answer segment.

Along with the title, Nel-Peters earned a yearlong salary, a luxury apartment in New York City for the duration of her reign and more prizes. "'I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world", she said. Miss Universe shows us that a pretty, young woman doesn't need education, their beauty will do it all.
