Philippines' bet Maxine Medina wows the crowd at the 65th Miss Universe Preliminary Competition held at Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, on Thursday, January 26, 2017.
REIGNING queen Pia Wurtzbach wore the iconic Mikimoto crown for her last photo shoot as Miss Universe.
Miss Germany caps her costume with a Bavarian-style castle headdress, and, channeling a superhero (and maybe Princess Leia in her metal bikini), Miss USA Deshauna Barber is wearing a silver two-piece with thigh-high boots and is carrying an eagle-emblazoned shield.
And she does not accept failure - it took her five attempts to win the Miss Universe GB competition.
The final show will be aired on Sunday at 8am in Manila - about midnight on January 29 in the United Kingdom, where it will be screened on Fox TV.
