The new Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters expressed her admiration on Pia Wurtzbach when asked by a fan on Twitter about her favorite previous winner aside from her fellow South African Margaret Gardener (who won Miss Universe in 1978).
This question came from a fan (jgmfl168) during the #askmissuniverse Twitter party: “Who is your favorite Miss Universe aside from Miss Universe 1978 Ms. Margaret Gardener? How’s your childhood? #AskMissUniverse. Good luck Demi!”
“I adore all previous winners but I really fell in love with @PiaWurtzbach after she won and I loved her reign. #askmissuniverse”
