Gray succeeds last year’s winner, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa.
The theme of the 67th Miss Universe pageant was “Empowered Women” and was judged by seven women including former pageant winners, businesswomen, and a fashion designer.
The emcee for Sunday evening’s festivities was comedian and game show host Steve Harvey.
According to website PhilStar Global, the evening contained a moment of humor when contestant Miss Costa Rica referred to an infamous Harvey faux pas from the 2015 Miss Universe pageant – when he announced the wrong contestant as having won that year’s title.
On Sunday, Harvey asked Miss Costa Rica – herself a TV host like Harvey – whether she had any professional advice for him.
She responded: “If they ever give you, like, a really, really, really important envelope, try to read carefully, OK?”
After the audience laughed, Harvey directed a remark at the crowd.
“You all thought that was funny,” he said. “You all just won’t let it go.”
The Associated Press contributed to this story.
