R’Bonney Gabriel won the Miss Universe 2022 pageant

On Saturday night, R’Bonney Gabriel was named the 71st Miss Universe. Amanda Dudamel from Venezuela and Andrena Martnez from the Dominican Republic lost out to Gabriel, who last year made history by becoming the first Filipino-American to win Miss USA.

In New Orleans, Louisiana, 84 ladies from around the world competed for the title in the pageant. The tournament ended on Saturday night, with eliminations reducing the number of competitors until only the final two remained.

After entering the Top 5, Gabriel was asked,

 “Miss Universe recently made an inclusive change allowing mothers and married women to compete this year. What’s another change you’d like to see and why?”

Her response was:

“For me, I would like to see an age increase because I am 28 years old. And that is the oldest age to compete. And I think it’s a beautiful thing. My favorite quote is ‘if not now, then when?’ Because as a woman, I believe age does not define us. It’s not tomorrow, it’s not yesterday — but it’s now. The time is now.”

India’s Harnaaz Sandhu, last year’s winner, presented Gabriel with her tiara, bouquet, and sash.
