South Africa's Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters wins Miss Universe 2017

South Africa's Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters waves after being crowned Miss Universe during the 66th Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas.

South Africa's Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters was crowned Miss Universe on Sunday, ending a nearly four-decade long drought for her country in one of the world's biggest pageants.

Nel-Peters, a 22-year-old business management graduate, beat out 91 other candidates during the finals held in Las Vegas. South Africa last won Miss Universe in 1978.

She succeeded France's Iris Mittenaere, who was crowned in Manila last January.

Colombia's Laura Gonzalez placed first runner-up, Jamaica's Davina Bennett was second runner-up. The Philippines' Rachel Peters finished in the Top 10
