Nguyen Thi Ngoc Chau, a 28-year-old beauty from southern Tay Ninh Province, was crowned Miss Universe Vietnam 2022 during the pageant’s finale held in Ho Chi Minh City on Saturday evening.

Chau surpassed 40 other candidates from across the country to win the title in the final round of Miss Universe Vietnam 2022, which took place at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in District 7.

With the height of 1.74 meters and body measurements of 81-63-92.5 centimeters, the Tay Ninh contestant is a professional fashion model who once made a splash when she was crowned the winner of Vietnam's Next Top Model 2016.

Chau won the title of Miss Supranational Vietnam 2018 and made her mark in the international arena after being crowned Miss Supranational Asia 2019.

Aside from winning the grand title of Miss Universe Vietnam 2022, the beauty also received the Best Body award and the ecology and environment ambassador title.  

“I cannot believe this is true,” Chau said after coming first in the beauty pageant.

“My main goal when coming to this competition is to step out of my comfort zone, scale new heights, and become a better version of myself.”

The new Miss Universe Vietnam stated she would spend 70 percent of her prize money on charity, providing education and healthcare for disadvantaged children, especially those who had lost their parents to COVID-19.
