Miss France, Iris Mittenaere Becomes 65th Miss Universe 2017 Winner
Miss France, Iris Mittenaere won the crown, while Pelissier was the first runner-up and Tovar the second-runner-up.
Mittenaere, 24, is a Parisian native, currently pursuing a degree in dental surgery. She plans to use her Miss Universe platform to advocate for dental and oral hygiene. During the competition's Q&A session, Mittenaere praised France's open borders and refugee population. She said:
"In France, we want to have the most globalization that we can, we want to have the biggest exchange of people that we can".
Steve Harvey once again hosted this year's pageant, despite his mistake last year. This is the first time since 1990 that a European has won the crown.
