Having survived a rocky first half of her reign as Miss South Africa, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters has gone on to make history as the second South African recipient of the Miss Universe crown since Margaret Gardiner in 1978.

Ntsiki Mazwai, who is also a social activist, made the declaration via Twitter following Nel-Peters' first place finish in the worldwide beauty pageant.

"I may be the new Miss Universe but I will always be your Miss South Africa - we did it!"

For the first time since 2010, Jamaica has secured a top 3 placement in the Miss Universe pageant. "No doubt in my mind", she said.

Davina Bennett, 21, is from a small district Clarendon of around 2,500 residents. Unlike most of the Miss Universe contestants, Davina stood out because of her stunning complexion and attractive Afro.

The self-assured 22-year-old, who recently earned a business management degree, was crowned Miss Universe on Sunday night at a star-studded ceremony in Las Vegas.

Aside from her Afro, she dazzled in her yellow evening gown and was also solid in the question and answer segment.

"I did not win but I got what I was seeking", Davina wrote on Instagram.
