Andrea Meza of Mexico becomes first Miss Universe since December 2019
Andrea Meza of Mexico has been crowned Miss Universe 2020.
Meza, who has a software engineering degree, beat out Miss Brazil at the end of the night on May 16, screaming when the announcer shouted “Viva Mexico!” at the pageant held at Hollywood, Florida.
Previous winner Zozibini Tunzi fit the crown on Meza’s head and waited to make sure it would stay in place as Meza beamed and took her first walk to the front of the stage.
Tunzi, a public relations professional who became the first Black woman from South Africa to win the contest, had held the title since December 2019. Last year’s ceremony was canceled due to the pandemic. (AP)
