Paulina Vega was named the 63rd Miss Universe tonight at the FIU Arena in Miami, Florica and is now the proud first wearer of the DIC Holding crown. Miss USA Nia Sanchez is her 1st Runner-Up, with Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha getting 2nd Runner-Up. Completing the Top 5 are 3rd Runner-Up Yasmin Verhejen of the Netherlands and 4th Runner-Up Kaci Fennell of Jamaica.
Miss Philippines MJ Lastimosa made it up to the Top 10 and was able to present in both the swimsuit and evening gown competitions as a result.
Congratulations to the new Miss Universe!
Will Paulina be tax-free for life in Colombia just like Luz Marina Zuluaga?
P.S. For those who took part in my Prediction Contest, Miss Netherlands is the ultimate spoiler. If you have her in your Top 5 along with Colombia, USA, Ukraine and Jamaica, then you stand a good chance of being the winner. 😉
