Vega stole the judges' hearts at the 63td annual pageant in Miami – which aired on NBC on Sunday night – beating out 88 other contestants, including finalists from Jamaica, Netherlands, Ukraine and Miss USA, Nia Sanchez, who was first runner up.
She looks kind of like last year's Miss Universe. I thought Miss Jamaica would win, but I bet the question and answer segment did her in. Giving these women 30 seconds to say how to fight terrorism in the world is ridiculous. And a little country is not going to have as much to offer to the whole wide world as a huge one like let's say the U.S.
As Miss Universe, Vega will receive an undisclosed salary, a luxury apartment in New York, a wardrobe and oodles of beauty products, and a one-year scholarship from the New York Film Academy.
