Miss Japan ‘Riyo Mori’ is Miss Universe (Photos and Video)

May 28, 2007

Miss Japan, 20-year-old Riyo Mori, won the Miss Universe 2007 title Monday night. See the photos, video, and pictures. The event was held in Mexico City. This is the second time her native country of Japan has won the title.

Mori, a dancer, wowed the crowd when she started off the interview process by saying, “Hola, Mexico!”. In a pre-competition interview she said:

“From the very beginning, I entered the competition with high hopes and an unswerving determination to make this dream a reality.”

Well, staying positive definitely helped Miss Mori, didn’t it?

Miss USA, Rachel Smith, slipped and fell to the floor during the evening gown competition. Ahem…that was not a pretty sight to see… Rachel ended up fourth runner up.
