24-Year-Old Mohanaprabha Crowned Miss Universe Singapore 2019

The grand finals for Miss Universe Singapore 2019 was held at Zouk Singapore on October 17 and 24-year-old Biomedical Science undergraduate Mohanaprabha was crowned the winner.

Ten finalists including Mohana came together during the historical night and wowed the crowd one after another. Similar to past Miss Universe contests, there were three parts to the show: an opening showcase, a bikini walk and finally, a question and answer (Q&A) segment.

While the first two segments showed off the finalists’ good looks and allowed them to charm judges and audiences alike, the Q&A segment was the defining moment.

When asked what her greatest fear was, Mohana said:

“Honestly, I haven’t lost anyone in my life so losing someone would be my greatest fear. Today, I hope all of you will take home this message: Please find the moments that you have shared with your friends and cherish them because these memories will last forever.”

Never giving up

Mohana is no stranger to Miss Universe Singapore or beauty pageants in general. Besides being a finalist in The New Paper New Face 2017, Mohana also made it to the top 5 for Miss Universe Singapore 2018.

When asked why, she said she wanted to “redeem” herself before graduating from university at the end of 2019. According to Mohana, confidence has always been something she struggled with but her hard work and determination clearly paid off as she was crowned Miss Universe Singapore 2019.

Everyone’s a winner

During the show, several other titles were also given out to finalists who won the judges’ hearts. They are:

  • Miss Aspirational 2019 – Bernadette Wu-Ong
  • Miss Global Asian Model Singapore – Annika Xue Sager
  • Miss Charm Singapore – Bernadette Wu-Ong
  • Second Runner Up – Cheryl Yao
  • First Runner Up – Laranya Kumar

*Update as at October 20* Mohana will represent Singapore on the international stage on December 8 in the United States for the Miss Universe title.
