On November 9th the winner of the 62nd annual Miss Universe pageant was announced. The event was held in Russia for the first time in the history of Miss Universe. The winner? Gabriela Isler, a 25-year-old from Venezuela. Of course, she is thrilled at winning, but she may be enjoying the perks a little more.
