Philippines' Catriona Gray Wins Miss Universe 2018

Christmas came early to the Philippines as Catriona Gray beat 93 other aspirants to the 2018 Miss Universe crown in ceremonies staged at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand, on Monday (Dec 17). She is the fourth Filipino woman to win the title.

She received her crown from last year's winner, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa.

Nel-Peters' compatriot Tamaryn Green failed to score a back-to-back victory for their country and settled for second place. Venezuela's Sthefany Gutierrez came in third.

The representatives from Vietnam and Puerto Rico made up the Top Five. The 94-candidate haul this year is the biggest in the pageant's 66-year-history.
