South Africa's Natasha Joubert missed out on a spot in the Miss Universe top 21 on Sunday in Hollywood, Florida.
Mexico's Andrea Meza was crowned the winner at the 69th edition of Miss Universe, which saw 74 countries compete for the coveted title. Mario Lopez and Olivia Culpo hosted the three-hour show, and South Africa's Demi-Leigh Tebow (Miss Universe 2017) served as an expert analyst.
South Africa's Zozibini Tunzi has become the longest reigning titleholder in Miss Universe history, after the annual pageant was postponed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"South Africa, let's have a standing ovation for our Miss Universe South Africa," the Miss South Africa organisation said in an Instagram post.
"You are bold, resilient, authentic and unapologetic! We will forever be proud of you and what you have achieved on your @missuniverse journey!" the post continued.
