Miss Universe Contestant Prizes

YENDI Phillipps last night placed second in the Miss Universe pageant, creating history as the highest ever finish by a Jamaican in that contest.

Phillipps served early notice of her historic feat when she was named in the final 15, then the final 10 and outshone early favourites Miss Puerto Rico and Miss Ireland to place in the top five.

The contest was won by Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete.

If for any reason Miss Mexico cannot continue her reign as Miss Universe 2010, Phillipps, as the first runner-up, will assume the role.

The second runner-up was Miss Australia, Jesinta Campbell; third runner-up, Miss Ukraine, Anna Poslavska; and fourth runner-up, Miss Philippines, Venus Raj.

Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell won the Miss Congeniality Universe award. Miss Thailand Fonthip Watcharatrakul won Miss Photogenic Universe and a second award for having the best national costume.
