Gray talked about her work in poor areas of her home country and how that has inspired her positive approach.

“Working in some of the poorest areas in my country, I found that it was the lack of child support- not poverty- that killed their dreams,” Gray told host Steve Harvey. “I stand here today because someone believed in me and we owe it to our children to believe in them.”

The first runner up was Miss South Africa and the second runner up was Miss Venezuela.

This year’s competition gained even more notoriety as it was the first to include a transgender woman. Angela Ponce is a biological male who represented Spain in this year’s competition.
