Miss Universe Latvia 2022 is Kate Alexeeva

Kate Alexeeva (Jekaterina Aleksejeva) has been officially announced as Miss Universe Latvia 2022 on Wednesday, October 12. She was crowned by Miss Universe Latvia national director Inga Raduga.

The 27-year-old international model and influencer from Riga bested four other finalists to win the national title. She will now prepare to represent Latvia at the 71st Miss Universe pageant in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA this January.

"I couldn’t be more grateful to the juries, to my family, friends and supporters, photographers, designers and literally every single person who put their trust in me, contributes, inspires me and makes this journey possible. It’s all just the beginning and I promise not to let you down," she wrote in a statement on social media.

Rounding out the Top 5 finalists were first runner-up Anastasija Aleksejevska, second runner-up Viktorija Samule, third runner-up Anastasija Reshetova, and fourth runner-up Liene Leitane.

Latvia debuted at Miss Universe in 2005 with Ieva Kokoreviča and managed to place in the Top 10. The European country last joined in 2006.

After 16 years, Inga Raduga Model Management received the license to send the next Latvian representative to the prestigious international pageant.

The new Miss Universe Latvia, who founded the beauty, cosmetics and personal care brand Glambox, has previously participated in the Top Model of the World, Miss Grand International, and Miss Multiverse pageants. She speaks Latvian, Russian, and English, and enjoys acting, traveling, reading books and dancing.
