    Road to Miss Universe 2011

    CROWD favourite Scherri-Lee Biggs has been crowned Miss Universe Australia tonight.
    The 20-year-old model and communications student from Perth beat a field of 30 in a flamboyant ceremony at the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne.
    The bubbly blonde with a million-dollar smile won over the judges and crowd from the start.
    Asked to discuss the controversial child beauty pagents, the aspiring painter said “children should be children”.
    Biggs said she was still in shock after the ceremony.
    “It hasn’t hit, I am absolutely shocked but can’t wait to represent Australia," she said.
    As well as more than $25,000 in prizes, the new Miss Universe Australia will earn the right to compete in the Miss Universe World finals to be held in Brazil on September 12.

    The competition comprised of three categories - swim wear, evening wear and a question and answer session with the panel of seven judges which included Naomi Robson, Vince Colosimo and marie claire editor Jackie Frank.
    “Scherri was a stand-out”, Frank said.

    “She was poised and elegant."
    Judges were looking for the “whole Aussie package”.
    “We want the girl next door, the fit, sexy and happy Aussie," Miss Universe Australia national director Deborah Miller said before the announcement.
    "We need someone who will compete in the International final. This year we are touted to win after doing so well in the past couple of years."
    Victoria's Samantha Downie was the second runner-up.
    Last year’s winner Jesinta Campbell said a record of more than 10,000 women registered for the contest.
