Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters: Eyes on the prize, always

It seemed as if Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters was still vying for the 2017 Miss Universe title. In an interview with Inquirer on Dec. 7 at Jollibee Macapagal Biopolis, the South African stunner said she had been eyeing just one pageant: "For me, it's always been Miss Universe."
