Miss Venezuela Stefania Fernandez wins Miss Universe in Nassau

August 24, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Miss Venezuela proved to be fairest of them all once again, winning the 2009 Miss Universe crown fending off competition from contestants from 83 countries. It was the second year straight year a Miss Venezuela took the crown and the sixth time in the 59-year history of the pageant. The 18-year-old brunette was crowned by another Venezuelan, Dayana Mendoza, Miss Universe 2008, marking the first time that two contestants from the same country have won the title in consecutive years.
The event was held at the Atlantis Resort in Nassau by a judging panel which included Andre Leon Talley, the editor-at-large for American Vogue, supermodel Valeria Mazza and actor Dean Cain.  The main event on Sunday was hosted by Celebrity Apprentice star Claudia Jordan and Access Hollywood co-anchor Billy Bush, and included performances by rapper Flo Rida, singers David Guetta and Kelly Rowland and reality star Heidi Montag. Each contestant was scored in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview, which a 12-member panel judged. Miss USA Kristen Dalton made it to the final 10 in the Miss Universe 2009 competition at Bahamas. Miss Dominican Republic, Ada Aimee De La Cruz, was named first runner-up and would assume Fernandez’s duties if she couldn’t complete her term.
