For Miss France Iris Mittenaere, winning the Miss Universe 2016 title was a "dream come true" and getting a warm welcome from Filipinos was worth celebrating.

And her favorite tourist destination?

She said this happened during her short visit in Cebu last January 17.

Iris Mittenaere of France blows kisses to the crowd after being proclaimed the Miss Universe 2016 in coronation Monday, Jan. 30, 2017, at the Mall of Asia in suburban Pasay city, south of Manila, Philippines.

The reigning Miss Universe, who revealed that she signed with IMG (owner of Miss Universe) then shocked Harvey by thanking him for a major blunder he would rather put behind him.

The new Miss Universe was crowned by her predecessor, Miss Philippines. Read on to know about the Miss Universe 2017 Boyfriends. I want to do that also. "But while we are beginning to see the seeds of change in the Catholic church, the LGBTQ community in the Philippines doesn't yet enjoy equal rights". "I don't believe it, '" Ms. Mittenaere said in a post-pageant news conference.

Pageant host Steve Harvey asked Were if she was "excited" or had any "concerns" about Trump becoming the commander in chief, a question that appeared to at first catch her off guard. The last victor from France was beauty queen and actress Christiane Martel, who won the pageant way back in 1953. This ended France's 63-year title drought since the victory of Christiane Martel (1953). "Having open borders allows us to travel more through the world and to find out more about what's out there in the world".

"However, it has been two years since IMG took over Miss Universe from Trump".
