• Suriname's Jaleesa Pigot (3rd)

• Sri Lanka’s Ornella Gunesekere (4th)

• Hungary's Korinna Kocsis (5th)

Process of selection

Unlike other beauty pageants, Shetty or any other finalists were not asked any question from the jury. Instead, the jury asked the five finalists to ask questions with each-others.

Shetty’s Question: The question that helped Shetty to claim the crown was asked by Valeria Vespoli, the Venezuelan contestant. Vespoli’s question to Shetty was “what was her biggest take away from the event”.

Shetty’s Reply: “Being a part of an arena of women from different countries and religions, where all are competing for the same goal being happy under one roof, was an enriching experience”.

Shetty is the second Indian to win the title after Asha Bhatt. Bhatt clinched the title three years ago.
