Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters Biography – Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters Wiki

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is a South African model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe 2017.

She was the Junior Deputy Mayor of the George City Council, in the Western Cape, when she was in grade 11 at the age of 17. In high school, she became the first girl in her school’s history to be President of the Student Council for both her school and boarding house.

Nel-Peters modeled part-time for Boss Models and Vision Management Cape Town while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business management and entrepreneurship from North-West University.

Nel-Peters began her pageantry career representing Western Cape in the Miss South Africa 2017 competition, which she won. As Miss South Africa 2017, she had the right to represent South Africa in both Miss World 2017 and Miss Universe 2017, but since the dates of the two pageants coincided, she was sent only to Miss Universe, held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She won the Miss Universe competition and was crowned Miss Universe 2017 by outgoing titleholder Iris Mittenaere. She became the second Miss Universe winner from South Africa, following Margaret Gardiner who was crowned Miss Universe 1978.

She ended her reign as Miss Universe on December 17, 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand, where she crowned Catriona Gray of the Philippines as her successor.
