Venus Raj gets first dibs on Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere


Camarines Sur native Venus Raj can claim to have been the first person to ever interview Miss Universe 2016 winner, Iris Mittenaere following her crowning moment at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

Venus did so alongside the Philippines’ on Miss Universe 2015 titleholder Pia Wurtzbach, so the set up was indeed bursting with beauty.

“Privileged to do the first interview of the newly crowed #MissUniverse at the Chi lounge. Thanks also to our very own Miss Universe 2015 @piawurtzbach for being so game in answering our questions. We love you Pia? #MissUniverse2016,” she wrote on her Instagram.

Venus certainly belongs in their company, having earned 4th runner up honors during the 2010 Miss Universe pageant.
