Chances of Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters at International Pageant
Demi’s beauty reminds us of Rolene Strauss with similar goddess vibes. She already have international fans favouring her and will be an instant favourite to win the crown of Miss Universe or Miss World this year. However, we wish she goes to Miss Universe as we feel chances of winning a crown might be more compared to Miss World where we saw a South African winning the crown 2 years back. So this could be the only factor where we feel a little hiccup for her at Miss World. Otherwise, we don’t mind seeing her win either of the crown. What do you feel? Tell us.
