This year's Miss Universe pageant took place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena and for the first time in decades, the Philippines was honored to host this year's pageant despite the current political climate and the opposition from others because no matter how bad the country's political situation, it still had a chance to put the Philippines on the map of the entertainment stage as well as tourism that made it flourished thanks to the pageant.
The Top 6 of this year's Miss Universe are Andrea Tovar from Colombia, Iris Mittenaere from France, Raquel Pelissier from Haiti, Mary Were from Kenya, our very own Maxene Medina from the Philippines, and Chalita Suansane from Thailand. Those who are on the Top 13 are Raissa Santana from Brazil, Siera Bearchell from Canada, Kezia Warouw from Indonesia, Kristal Silva from Mexico, Keity Drenna Panama, Valeria Piazza from Peru, and Deshauna Barber from USA.
However, the winner of the 65th Miss Universe pageant is none other than Miss France Iris Mittenaere. She will succeed from last year's winner Pia Wurtzbach from the Philippines as the new winner of the Miss Universe pageant and represent herself to the world stage.
Congratulations for Miss France as the 65th Miss Universe.
