Our favourite Miss Universe New Zealand yet and with high hopes to bring home the crown, Talia Bennett stops in to take 5 with Zeisha PR before the final of Miss Universe!
What has been the highlight for you so far being a contestant in Miss Universe?
There has been so many…. But to be honest being part of miss universe has been an amazing experience and highlight I have to keep reminding myself where I am and how wonderful this opportunity is! I know so many girls would kill to have the chance to be a part of this. It’s a surreal feeling!
How did you feel and what were your initial thoughts before walking out onto the world stage for the preliminaries?
Not nervous at all, in fact I was so excited I couldn’t wait to get on there!!! Over the last three weeks we have had amazing training by Lou and the rehearsals make you feel confident, so nerves well and truly aside, I learnt to enjoy & appreciate the moment on stage it’s a great feeling!
How did you feel wearing your National costume?
I felt fab! I was truly lucky to have had two wonderful ladies, Anita and Anika, come in last minute to help contribute and make this possible for me! I loved wearing it, it was so fun and the best I think New Zealand has had yet!
What has been your hardest task at Miss Universe so far?
Nothing!! (laughs) the days are long very long but I guess with my training and early starts back home, I am used to it somewhat!
What are you looking forward to after Miss Universe is over?
A sleep in and some Christmas pavalova! (laughs)
The following live stream options below will start at approx 2pm NZ time.
Good luck Talia! You have done New Zealand proud and we can’t wait to watch you in the final!
