The contest was hosted by comedian Steve Harvey, who surprised Miss India Harnas by asking, “I heard you were impersonating some beautiful animal, let’s hear the best”.
“OMG Steve, I did not expect to do this on the world stage. I have to do this, I have no choice. Everyone get ready, ”he said before meowing.
The second Miss Universe during epidemics
The event took place in the city of Eilat in Israel.
This is the second cosmic beauty in the Govt-19 era. Israel’s borders should be opened to immunization tourists before this year’s main event, which will allow thousands of fans to attend.
But with the Omigran variant, the Israeli government closed its borders to foreigners two weeks before the match.
When Miss France, Clemens Bodino landed in Israel, she tested positive for Kovit-19 and was isolated in a hotel. He came out in time for the opening match on Friday.
