Canada makes Top 10 at Miss Universe pageant

South African pageant crowned the world's most beautiful woman

President Jacob Zuma has congratulated the reigning Miss South Africa, Ms. Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, on being crowned Miss Universe 2017 at the beauty pageant held yesterday in Las Vegas in the United States of America.

This year's pageant drew 4.4 million total viewers and a 1.1 rating, down 15 and 27 percent from last year, TV Line reports, giving the annual event its second-lowest numbers ever.

When asked to name the most important issue women face in the workplace, Nel-Peters said the lack of equal pay. Nel-Peters slew the final question and answer portion who promoted the confidence and overcoming of fears especially for women.

"The new Miss Universe is a woman that has overcome many fears and by that she is able to help other women to overcome their own fears".

Making the Top 10 were USA, Philippines, Canada, Spain and Brazil.

Newly-crowned Miss Earth 2017 Karen Ibasco thanked her fellow beauty queen for representing the country "with beauty and a heart".

In the US, dozens of politicians, Hollywood executives and actors, and media personalities are facing accusations of sexual misconduct, sparked by a wave of allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein. "Our Davina left her mark on the world and is an inspiration to other Jamaican young women". By proudly wearing her natural hair, she is doing just that, standing for the women of color who have had to deal with the rude comments, unnecessary stares, touching, and intolerance in the workplace, simply because of the hairstyles they chose to wear which best suit their texture.

TV host Steve Harvey redeemed himself this year after the 2015 blooper in which he named the wrong contestant as the victor.

"Let us celebrate this great victory of our nation".

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

Others in the top 10 besides the eventual victor were Miss Thailand, Miss Spain, Miss Colombia, Miss Brazil, Miss Canada, Miss Philippines, Miss Venezuela and Miss Jamaica.
