But it was another Peters — Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa — who bested 91 contestants and took home the crown.

Nel-Peters is the second Miss Universe from South Africa in the 66-year-history of the prestigious beauty contest.

It was 39 years ago when a SouthAfrican beauty named Margaret Gardiner won the title in 1978.

Nel-Peters has been one of the favorite candidates to win the crown since the candidates arrived in Las Vegas for the competition.

She even topped gambling portals from around the world as bettors placed their money on her, along with candidates from Thailand, Colombia, and the Philippines.
