11 Things That Happened At The Next Miss Universe Malaysia 2015 Finale

Here’s what you missed!

Five months ago, Malaysia found its Top 17 finalists to be the next Miss Universe Malaysia 2015 and at the Gala Night dinner on 17th of April, we found our new beauty queen — Vanessa Tevi Kumares, 24 from Negeri Sembilan.

Winners and judges

It was the last stretch and definitely a long day for the girls and every one else involved — even the anxious fans, waiting for the crowning moment. If you weren’t there to catch it LIVE, no worries cos here’s the quick rundown of what you missed at The Next Miss Universe Malaysia 2015 Gala Night dinner:

1. There were only six finalists who survived the final elimination rounds in the reality TV show: Gloria Tneh, Jasveer Sandhu, Kelly Jagan, Pauline Tan, Sugeeta Chandran and Vanessa Tevi.

2. At the final round, three previously eliminated girls were brought back into the competition: Jenny Wong, Ashley Ahn and Meera Maniar. They were chosen based on public votes via The Miss Universe Malaysia mobile apps, and votes from the resident judges and panel of Gala Night judges.
