Miss Universe 2017: Miss South Africa receives the crown

Instagram

During the show, Nel-Peters also shared the story of literally being abducted by car-jackers on the night of being crowned Miss South Africa, and how she channeled the trauma into running self-defense programs for young women in her country.

In the end, it came down to Demi-Leigh against Laura Gonzalez from Colombia, who was eventually named the runner-up, while Davina Bennett from Jamaica was second runner-up.

They were asked: What quality in yourself that you are most proud of and how do you apply that quality to your time as Miss Universe? This year's competition is the biggest in its 66-year history, with 92 contestants vying for the tiara, a New York City apartment and a year-long salary.

She was crowned after beating 91 other contestants from all over the world.

The 22-year-old from the Western Cape is only the second South African to win the title, following Margaret Gardiner's win in 1978.

"I am so excited to represent my beloved country to the Miss Universe Pageant", stated Sotheary before the Sunday competition.

The Miss Universe Pageant previously aired on NBC and Univision when the Miss Universe Organization was owned by future President Donald Trump.

When Graham asked Peters how she felt about her reception, the 26-year-old model said: "I was a little nervous".

Peters was not called during the regional announcements. This took her through to the Top 3.
