Demi-Leigh took up Business Management at North West University. According to the Miss Universe website, her "biggest motivation comes from her half-sister who has a disability, that lives in Potchefstroom with her stepmother and father."

The first runner-up is Laura González from Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, and the second runner-up is Davina Bennett of Jamaica.

The new Miss Universe will be jetted to her apartment in New York City, where she will be represented by WME ING, a renowed talent agency that manages the likes of Bella Hadid, Karli Kloss, and Kate Moss. She will then plan her year as the face of the Miss Universe Organization's many initiatives, including Smile Train and Aid for Aids.
