3. Zozibini taking her final walk as Miss Universe

Zozibini had the longest reign as Miss Universe due to the pandemic. 

"From the moment I won, I knew my reign would be different, but I never imagined it would be during a global pandemic. However, I had the opportunity to touch twice as many lives because the world went virtual," she said while taking her final steps as Miss Universe 2019.
