As many as 92 women from around the world were competing for the Miss Universe 2017 title at the pageant, hosted by Steve Harvey.
Ms. Nel-Peters became only the second South African to win the title after Margaret Gardiner won the title in 1978.
Nel-Peters earned a yearlong salary and a luxury apartment in New York City for the duration of her reign as well as more prizes. Jamaica's Solange Sinclair secured a Top 10 spot and grabbed the Caribbean Queen of Beauty award in the 2017 Miss World pageant in Sanya, China last weekend.
Meanwhile, Laura Gonzalez of Colombia and Davina Bennett of Jamaica were crowned 1st runner-up and 2nd runner-up, respectively.
In the pageant's 66th year, more than 90 women from around the globe - including first-timers from Cambodia, Laos and Nepal - took part.

Nel-Peters, who is from the Western Cape province, is a business management graduate from the North-West University.
TV host Steve Harvey redeemed himself this year after the 2015 blooper in which he named the wrong contestant as the victor. "She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for, and I think that is exactly who I am".

Jamaica's previous top ten placements at Miss Universe included Sandra Foster (1989), Kimberly Mais (1991) Christine Straw (2004) and Nicole Haughton (1999).
Seated on the judges tables were Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Hollywood Today host Ross Mathews, fashion correspondent Jay Manuel, top internet influencer Lele Pons, UFC backstage reporter Megan Olivi, hair care/spa products company founder Farouk Shami, and Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam.
