Philippines’ Catriona Gray Crowned Miss Universe 2018

BANGKOK – Catriona Gray from the Philippines was crowned as Miss Universe 2018 on Monday at a gala held in Bangkok, becoming the fourth participant from her country to win a crown in this beauty contest.

Gray was crowned by her predecessor, South African Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, while South African Tamaryn Green and Venezuelan Sthefany Gutierrez escorted her as first and second maid of honor, respectively.

Gray, wearing a long red evening dress and showing her right leg, melted into an embrace with Green, when she heard her name announced.

Also in the final round were Puerto Rican Kiara Ortega and Vietnamese H’Hen Nie.

This is the third time Thailand has hosted this competition, the first time was in 1992, when Michelle McLean from Namibia was crowned, and the second time was in 2005, when Canadian Natalie Glebova won.

Spain’s Angela Ponce, the first transsexual to participate in a Miss Universe contest, was eliminated in the first round.

Ponce, an activist for LGBT rights, had a video dedicated by the organization which was showing her steps through the competition in which she appeared crying but determined to make the world change.

After the video was shown, Ponce returned to the catwalk alone, where she was given a standing ovation by the public gathered in the Bangkok Convention Center.
