It’s official: Miss Mexico Andrea Meza Carmona is the new Miss Universe 2020!
Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi passed on the elusive crown to the 26-year-old beauty queen at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at Florida, USA this May 17, 2021.
As for the final Q&A portion, Andrea was asked what we should have done in response to the COVID-19 pandemic if she were her country's leader.
Her answer reads: "I believe there's not a perfect way to handle this hard situation. However, I believe what I would've done was to create the lockdown even before everything was that big. Because we lost so many lives, and we can't afford that, we have to take care of our people. That's why I would've taken care of them since the beginning."
Miss Brazil Julia Gama and Miss Peru Janick Maceta Del Castillo came in as the the first and second runners-up respectively.
Andrea is the third Miss Universe winner from Mexico. Her predecessors were Ximena Navarrete from 2010 and Lupita Jones from 1991.

The Philippines' bet for this year, Rabiya Mateo, made it until the the competition's Top 21.
