- Across the Universe -
They are stars, the brightest one in each country. This summer, they will travel all along the way, across the universe, to gather in Sao Paulo where one of them will conquer the universe. As a celebration of Miss Universe pageant diamond anniversary, we dedicate this section for them. The beauties from all corners of the universe, who will fight to become the one and only, Miss Universe 2011!

Alyssa Campanella - USA (21/173 cm)
Alyssa Campanella is the current titleholder and winner of the 2011 Miss USA pageant. She was the second placer of the 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant while representing New Jersey. Campanella competed in the Miss New Jersey USA pageant twice, placing First Runner Up in 2008 and in the Top 15 in 2009. After costantly rejected by her home state, she decided to move to California and tried her shots at Miss California USA 2011. She won and represented California in the 2011 Miss USA pageant where she came up on the top. Like the popular proverb says "A man's trash is another man's treasure". New Jersey neglected her and in the end it was California who ended up gaining the big prize with this red-haired gem. One thing you should know about her is that her red hair is not natural. She was born blonde but decided to change it into red for a role in a drama. A smart decision apparently, as it now becomes her famous trademark.

Eka Gurtskaia - GEORGIA (25/181 cm)
Gurtskaia came from the city of Tbilisi and competed as one of 23 finalists of Miss Georgia 2010 pageant held in Batumi on 20 September 2010. She won the pageant and gained the right to represent her country at Miss Universe 2011.

Fernández competed as the representative of Santiago, one of 36 finalists in her country's national beauty pageant, Miss Dominican Republic 2011. Her victory was not a smooth one apparently, as she was accused by some other contestants for bribing the judges. The accusation was denied by both Fernández herself and the pageant officials but regardless it became a national scandal. Fernández is currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in psychology. Like her predecessor Ada Aimee, she has mixed African, White and Native ancestry.
