who wins the Miss Universe 2023 pageant?

Miss Universe 2023 took place on Saturday night in El Salvador’s capital, San Salvador. Sheynnis Palacios of Nicaragua was crowned the 2023 Miss Universe. Anntonia Porsild of Thailand placed as first runner-up.

National pageant winners from 84 countries competed in this year’s Miss Universe, judged by a panel including model Halima Eden, “Queer Eye” star Carson Kressley, TikTok influencer Avni Gregg and two former Miss Universe winners, Jenelle Commissionig of Trinidad and Tobago. (Miss Universe 1977) and France’s Iris Mittenare (Miss Universe 2016).

Twenty semi-finalists were announced at the start of Saturday night’s proceedings following the results of the preliminary competition (and global fan voting). After the swimsuit round, the field was narrowed down to 10 — the contestant semifinalist, Miss Nepal, as well as the first contestant to choose a burkini as their swimsuit, Miss Pakistan, were eliminated. The number of contestants in the evening gown round has been cut in half again.

The two-round hot topic question-and-answer session left just three women in contention: Palacios, Porsild and second runner-up Moray Wilson of Australia.

Asked in the final round who she would choose to spend a day in the life of, Palacios chose 18th-century British philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, who she said broke boundaries and “gave a lot of women a chance.”
