Miss Universe Falls to Second-Lowest Numbers Ever in the Ratings

South African pageant crowned the world's most beautiful woman

She had come up just short of the honour in 2014 and persevered despite chatter in some corners that she should give up. It has since been kept by the Miss Universe Organization after switching to the crowns by Diamond Nexus Lab and the Diamond International Corporation.

The two runner-ups are Miss Colombia and Miss Jamaica.

The outspoken poet said she had "outgrown" Eurocentric beauty standards and argued that "We are raising another generation of black girls who must aspire to whiteness".

Keisha Codrington: "Although Ms. Jamaica didn't win #MissUniverse, she still did her country and the Caribbean proud".

Steve Harvey returns as the show's host despite botching the 2015 Miss Universe crowning.

The 22-year-old, who recently earned a business management degree, was crowned at The AXIS theater at Planet Hollywood casino-resort on the Las Vegas Strip. "She is a woman that nothing is ever too much is asked for and that's exactly who I am", Nel-Peters said.

Finally, Miss Universe Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, from South Africa, stated, "You have to be confident in who you are as an individual".

The competition's top 13 finalists were Thailand, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Spain, Ireland, Croatia, Great Britain, USA, Brazil, Canada, Philippines, Venezuela and China.

She adds, "A truly magical evening, welcome to the family Demi!"

In response, the South African beauty queen called for "equal work and equal pay" for women in the workplace, citing that women only get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job.

She helped develop a program to train women in self-defense in various situations after she was robbed at gunpoint a month after she was crowned as Miss South Africa. And so Miss Universe competition will be the platform for me to use this foundation to spread awareness for all the deaf and mute around.

The Miss Universe Organization implemented a new mechanics for the coronation event, selecting the top 16 per continent.

It was the second strong finish by Jamaica in a beauty pageant in as many weeks. Named best in National Costume Contest was Japan's Momoko Abe.

This year's judges include YouTube star Lele Pons and former judge on "America's Next Top Model" Jay Manuel.
