Miss Philippines Wins Miss Universe Title


Catriona Gray from the Philippines claimed the Miss Universe crown for 2018 on Monday, beating contestants from 93 other countries. Miss USA, Sarah Rose Summers, did make it to the finals -- but only just, and was eliminated before voting got down to the last 10. Last week, Summers sparked an online backlash when she posted a video commenting on the English-language abilities of two contestants. In a live Instagram video -- denounced as "condescending" and "xenophobic" -- the 24-year-old said Miss Vietnam H'Hen Nie is "so cute and she pretends to know so much English and then you ask her a question after having a whole conversation with her and she (nods and smiles)."
