Miss South Africa wins Miss Universe 2019

Published

Miss Universe, known as the most respected pageant around the globe for its diverse roster of contestants. Each year, women representing 90 countries compete for the international title, and, of course, the diamond-encrusted crown.

Tonight in Atlanta at Tyler Perry Studios, Miss South Africa Zozibini Tunzi, 26, was crowned Miss Universe 2019 with Miss Mexico and Miss Puerto Rico serving as runner-ups. From the moment Tunzi graced the stage she commanded the viewers’ attention but the final round solidified that the Tsolo native didn’t come to play.

The contestants were asked the same question with only 45 seconds to nail their responses –– the pressure was on. The three finalists were asked, “What is the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today?”

“I think the most important thing is leadership,” Tunzi boldly stated. “It’s something that’s been lacking in young girls and women for a long time. Not because we don’t want to, but because of what society has labeled us to be. I think we are the most powerful beings in the world.”

Draped in a stunning sequin gold and silver figure-hugging dress, she accepted the honor of becoming the world’s newest ambassador.

Her online biography reads “She is a proud advocate for natural beauty and encourages women to love themselves the way they are.” Tunzi unquestionably accomplished that goal this evening!

Congratulations Miss Universe 2019, Zozibini Tunzi!

Adapted from the Joan Didion novel of the same title, the film is set against the nebulous milieu of the Iran-Contra scandal. Veteran D.C. journalist Elena McMahon played by Hathaway abandons the 1984 campaign trail out of a misguided sense of duty to her father.
