Not only is Mittenaere the second Miss France ever to become Miss Universe - the first was Christiane Martel - she's also the first European victor, period, since 2002. So what do we know about the newly crowned victor?

Below you can see a video of last year's victor Pia Wurtzbach giving her the crown. In Europe we have open borders.

Miss Kenya, another finalist, said Donald Trump's presidency "may not have been the choice of many people" and divided the United States. When asked about the situation she was adamant about keeping borders open. "Maybe someday that will change, but now we have open borders".

However, a journalist at a press conference that was held right after the actual pageant pointed out to Miss France that some French expatriates noted inaccuracies in her translated answer.

"So having open borders allows us to travel more through the world and find out more of what's out there in the world". Miss France then said: "I think my translator is very good; I don't want to say that".

Tovar, who was asked about violence in today's society, didn't have an explanation for the trend but said through a translator that respect and inclusiveness would help educate children against violence in the future.

Most people were probably watching to see if Harvey would screw up again.

She also spoke out in support of former US President Barack Obama and said she backed Hillary Clinton to be America's first woman president.

When it came time to announce the victor, there was a lighthearted acknowledgment of the terrible gaffe Harvey made in 2015.

Steve Harvey's mishap at last year's Miss Universe pageant, in which he mistakenly announced Miss Colombia as the victor, is far from forgotten in the South American country - but it is forgiven.

As Harvey went to open the envelope this time around, Wurtzbach tapped him lightly on the shoulder and handed him his reading glasses.

"Thank you, Pia", Harvey said as the crowd laughed. However, with the pageant now back on in late January for the first time in two year, the ratings took a bit of a hit on Fox.
