"I hear you do some pretty good animal impersonations, let's hear your best one."

Though Harvey was later condemned online for singling her out with what many have proposed was an inappropriate question. Before demonstrating a few meows, she said look surprised that, 

"Oh my god, Steve, I was not expecting to do this on the world stage. I have to do this, I have no other option. Brace yourselves, everyone."

"This is the time to take action and talk less. Prevent and protect is better than repent and repair."

"Chak de Phatte India,"

Miss Universe Show 2021 At Israel

This competition of this year marks the second Covid-era Miss Universe crown. The borders of Israel were set to open to tourists who are vaccinated prior to the main event this year, which would have enabled thousands of fans to attend.

But with the appearance of the latest Omicron variant, the government of Israeli has shut its borders to foreigners two weeks prior to the competition, throwing travel preparations and plans into chaos. One participant, Miss France, tested positive for the virus upon her landing in Israel and had to quarantine — getting out during the time for the preliminary competition on Friday.

The Miss Universe event was also covered in another layer of political argument, with some countries and critics calling for boycotts — as with former international events hosted in Israel.

Israel was among the first nations to start vaccinating its population and had attained a high vaccination rate by May this year when the nation was reached out about hosting the December competition, as per a spokesperson from Israel’s Ministry of Tourism.


The Miss Universe show 2021 was held in Israel and the Miss Universe 2021 winner is Harnaaz Sandhu. After  21 years, the Miss Universe pageant was bright back in India. In the year 2000, Lara Dutta won this crown, and after that Harnaaz Sandhu. This brings a proud moment for Indians and Harnaaz Sandhu has received great appreciation from the Indians.
