Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete Rosete has finally taken away the Miss
Universe crown at 59th edition of the Miss Universe pageant that
was held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada,
US on August 23rd. The other runners-up were Miss Jamaica, Miss
Australia, Miss Ukraine and Miss Philippines.
A total of 83 contestants from different countries were in the
row for the Miss Universe pageant, but pushing them aside, the Miss
Mexico Jimena reached the finals. She had to face a tough
competition in the finals from the Miss Philippines Venus Raj, who
had almost bagged the crown, but her unflattering answer at the
final stages put her some crucial points behind.
However, Jimena Navarrete was born on February 22, 1988 at
Guadalajara in Mexico. She studied nutrition prior to her
participation in beauty pageants. Earlier, she has won the titles
like the Nuestra Belleza Jalisco and the Nuestra Belleza Mexico as
well. Now she has became the second consecutive winner from Jalisco
following Karla Carrillo.
