  • After a scary robbery at gunpoint Miss South Africa went on to be crowned Miss Universe

In response to the question, Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who was later crowned the victor, didn't flinch and took a strong stance against the harassment of women.

More than 90 women are taking part in the decades-old competition airing live on Fox from The AXIS theater at Planet Hollywood casino-resort.

South Africa's Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters won the crown while Colombia's Laura González Ospina was first runner-up.

Along with the title, Nel-Peters gets a yearlong salary, luxury apartment in New York City for a year and a host of prizes.

"She is a woman that nothing is ever too much is asked for and that's exactly who I am", Nel-Peters said.

The 2017 edition of the Miss Universe pageant has begun in Las Vegas.

Several media men also reacted to the Top 10 finish of the Bicolana beauty queen and why she did advance further.

Answering the same question, Miss Jamaica, Davina Bennett, said: "Sexual harassment is a form of abuse, and no abuse should be tolerated whether in the workplace or in society".

In an interview with Fox News, Graham criticized Miss Universe and its American counterpart, Miss USA, for not featuring a single curvy contestant in their 60-plus-year runs.

Her passion for self-defence was reinforced when she was hijacked and held at gunpoint a month after winning her title as Miss South Africa, she said in a video on the Miss Universe website. Yesterday out of the 16 finalists only 2 had higher education, and when Steve Harvey asked of their higher education everyone was surprised as in to how a woman, who is pretty, who can walk on a runway, could also be an engineer. "I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world".

She said that women together are "unbreakable".

Others in the top 10 besides the eventual victor were Miss Thailand, Miss Spain, Miss Colombia, Miss Brazil, Miss Canada, Miss Philippines, Miss Venezuela and Miss Jamaica. "If you can see a curvy girl on the cover of Sports Illustrated or Vogue, then we can definitely see a curvy girl as Miss Universe".
