Miss Universe France Iris Mittenaere was crowned Miss Universe 2016, at the Mall of Asia Arena on Monday, January 30.
Iris is a 23-year old Dental Surgery student born on North of France. Besides dental school, she is also into extreme sports, traveling and cooking new French dishes—with Beef Bouillon as her specialty, she very well made known during the coronation night.
Miss France totally nailed the question and answer portion. They were each asked to name a failure over the course of their life and explain what they’ve learned from that experience.
“When you failed, you have to be elevated and you have to try again to keep going. If tonight, I am not the winner, I will still have the great honor of being one of the three finalists. So I think, I may have failed before, but for me this is a great first opportunity,” she answered.
Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier is first runner-up, and Miss Colombia Andrea Tovar won the second runner-up.
Meanwhile, Philippines’ bet Maxine Medina landed up to the Top 6 of the competition.
