Dayanara Torres reveals the reason why Miss France was crowned Miss Universe 2016

"In the end, personality had a whole lot to do with it," she said. Dayanara said Iris’ last answer gave her plus points. The top 3 candidates were asked about their failure in life and what they’ve learned about it. She shared her story of her failure to enter medical school on her first try.

Dayanara also said that the Miss Universe Organization is looking for an unconventional beauty queen and personality is more important than physical beauty.

"When you arrive at an event where the Miss Universe is going to be, you want to find a person that's accessible and not just a robot or with an attitude. You don't want that," she said.

"You want somebody that's more human and who's going to touch other people. Because when they talk, people are going to listen,” she added.

Dayanara continued, "I think being more human at this point in time, when the world is going through so much, it's much more important than a person that's just impressionable to look at.”
