Miss Brazil, Miss Dominican Republic and Miss Peru also count themselves amongst the pageant's Top 5 contestants.

Our stunning new Miss Universe has a degree in software engineering and hails from Chihuahua, a city in Mexico. According to the Miss Universe official website, Meza grew up in a large family who taught the young woman a love for outdoor activities like rappelling and sand-boarding.

She's also a fervent women's rights activist and currently spends much of her time working with NGOs that help put an end to gender-based violence.

South Africa's very own golden girl, Zozibini Tunizi, fitted the crown on Meza's head, waiting to make sure it would stay in place, before Meza finally took her first steps as the new Miss Universe.

Meanwhile, it was previously reported that social media was a little surprised to learn our reigning Miss SA would not be trying her hand in this year's Miss Universe pageant.

According to TimesLive, Miss South Africa representatives did not take the decision without some thought. For the first time Mzansi has chosen to send three separate beauty queens to three separate global pageants this year: Miss Universe, Miss World and, for the first time ever, Miss Supranational.

Miss SA Shudufhadzo Musida will represent the nation at Miss World in December while first-runner up, Thato Mosehle, will fly the flag high at Miss Supranational in August. Second-runner up Natasha Joubert is currently living it up in Hollywood, Florida, hoping to walk away with the coveted Miss Universe Crown.

“We believe that we have chosen the perfect candidate for each competition and believe that they will do extremely well. We are hoping for more than one title.”

The Miss Universe finale will take place on 16 May.
