The contestants gathered in Bangkok Sunday night for a live, three-hour special that featured everything from a swimsuit competition and evening gown showing to the infamous final question.

If you didn’t tune in, don’t worry. We have compiled the moments you missed.

Who won?

Miss Philippines Catriona Elisa Gray was last night crowned the winner of this year’s Miss Universe contest, becoming the fourth Philippine native to win the crown. Miss South Africa Tamaryn Green was named as the first runner-up.

Gray was a front-runner the entire competition, but her answer to the final question all but solidified her title. The final three were all asked the same question: “What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in your life and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?”

She talked about visiting the poorest areas in her country and realizing the need to look for the beauty in things and to find the silver lining: “If I could teach people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negatively could not grow and foster, and children will have a smile on their face.”

History was made

Miss Spain Angela Ponce made history as the first transgender woman in the competition. Although she did not make the top 20, Ponce said she was already a winner.

The joke’s on Harvey

Steve Harvey returned to host Miss Universe, but it appears he will never live down his infamous gaffe of crowning the wrong contestant in 2015.

While introducing the top 20, Harvey asked Miss Costa Rica Natalia Carvajal (who is a TV host in her country) for any tips for the night.

Carvajal teased: “If they give you a really important envelope, try to read carefully.” As the crowd roared in laughter, Harvey replied: “You just can’t let it go.”

Forgotten words

Giving an opening statement about yourself is nerve-wracking in any setting. Doing so in front of the Miss Universe audience proved to be too much for Miss Jamaica Emily Maddison. While onstage speaking about overcoming insecurities, Maddison stumbled over her words. It appeared she could not see the teleprompter as she squinted while struggling to find what came next

She paused momentarily to let out an “aw,” while the crowd cheered her through the rest of her message to the world. She did not make it to the top 10, but social media users agreed that she finished strong.

This 12-year-old who was defiled by a 55-year-old man is about to be denied Justice because she couldn’t present positive examination results on time

Published

on

Twelve-year-old Ama (real name withheld), who has been defiled by 55-year-old Amadu Umar, may be denied justice because her representatives could not make it on time to the police station to present results from her examination.

According to Hajia (real name withheld) who is currently providing protection to Ama and her mother, the CID in charge of the case at the Odorkor Police Station, Madam Beatrice, gave her an ultimatum of 20 minutes earlier today, to report at the station or she grants bail to the offender.

Hajia in a phone interview with Ameyaw TV’s Zeinat Issahak, revealed that Ama had been defiled two months ago, however, because her mum was not familiar with the law, she failed to report it immediately.

“Ama was defiled since she was nine years old but her mum only got to know about it 2 months ago. Because her mum is illiterate and didn’t know the issues of the law, she first sent the complaint to the chief’s palace. She took it to the chiefs at Ablekuma but they couldn’t handle it so they proceeded to an Islamic marital court and it was through that the Police were involved,” Hajia explained.

Hajia added that after they finally got the Police, involved, on Saturday, December 4, a thorough examination was done on Ama at the Mamprobi Polyclinic which came out positive, and confirming that indeed she had been defiled.

However, Hajia revealed that they were to present the test results to the CID on Monday, December, 6, but due to the strike by the public transport drivers, they couldn’t make it to the police station.

Hajia tells Ameyaw TV’s Zeinat that when she called the CID to explain the circumstances, she was told to present the test results within 20 minutes or she grants the offender bail.

Meanwhile, few hours after this post was made, Hajia called to reveal that indeed, the offender, Mr Amadu had been granted bail by CID Beatrice.

They are to appear in court on December, 21st for the final verdict.
