I know what your next question will be, dear readers. Why was the placement unannounced during the live finals that denied our Queen the special moment of being photographed alongside with the winners? Well, I wish I could give you a statement from the organizers. All I have are these images of Nichole with the 3rd Runner-Up crown. These were taken after the finals during a private moment during post-coronation when the organizers from Deliart Association made the informal crowning of two more runners-up. Miss South Africa was also named 4th Runner-Up. Click the link below for the video on FB.
Nichole is now on her way back to the Philippines. At least we know what her final ranking is now, and with a 3rd Runner-Up crown to prove the claim.
