Miss Universe Nepal 2022 is Sophiya Bhujel

Sophiya Bhujel was crowned Miss Universe Nepal 2022 in a glittering show held Thursday, August 25 at Hotel Yak & Yeti in Kathmandu.

The 26-year-old beauty, who holds a degree in business management, bested 19 other finalists to win her national title. She succeeds last year's winner Sujita Basnet and will represent her country at Miss Universe 2022, whose date and venue are yet to be announced.

Bipana Adhikari was named first runner-up while Ashma KC finished as second runner-up. Sefina Joshi and Monalisha Parajuli were the third and fourth runners-up, respectively.

This year's competition was the third edition of the Miss Universe Nepal pageant under the leadership of former titleholder Nagma Shrestha.

The new Miss Universe Nepal is no stranger to pageantry. She joined Miss Nepal 2019, where she placed in the Top 7, and also participated in the Global Asian Model and Miss Eco International pageants.

Nepal debuted at the Miss Universe pageant in 2017 and its highest placement happened the following year when Manita Devkota finished in the Top 10.
