Here she is!

We finally have a Miss Universe 2018 winner! Ladies and gentlemen, here is our new queen:

Miss Universe 2018 Winner: Miss Philippines Catriona Gray

Universe, Here's Your Queen: Our New Miss Universe 2018!

Catriona is the fourth Miss Universe from the Philippines. Here's her answer to the final question — the words that won her the crown.

The final question: "What is the most important lesson you've learned in your life and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?"

Catriona's answer: "I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila and the life there is very…poor and it’s very sad. And I've always taught myself to look for the beauty in it. To look in the beauty in the faces of the children and to be grateful. And I would bring this aspect as a Miss Universe to see situations with a silver lining and to assess where I could give something, where I could provide something as a spokesperson. And this I think, if I could teach people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negativity could not grow and foster and children could have a smile on their faces."

Here are the 1st and 2nd Runners-up, as well as their answers to the same question.

1st Runner-Up: Miss South Africa Tamaryn Green

Universe, Here's Your Queen: Our New Miss Universe 2018!

Tamaryn's answer: "Throughout my life, I’ve been exposed to those who are privileged and under-privileged. What I’ve learned is that we are all human. We all want to be loved, we all want to belong, and we all want to be seen, so we should treat each other that way. Thank you."

2nd Runner-Up: Miss Venezuela Sthefany Gutiérrez

Universe, Here's Your Queen: Our New Miss Universe 2018!

Sthefany's answer: "I grew up in a family filled with women, and each one of them taught me something very important. But what I always remembered is that by working hard in chasing your dreams, and having courage and strength and willingness to achieve these dreams we can achieve anything we want in this lifetime. And tonight, I am proving this. I am here in Miss Universe."
