Miss Universe Bonaire 2024 is Ruby Pouchet

After 25 years, Bonaire is returning to the Miss Universe stage with the newly appointed Miss Universe Bonaire 2024 Ruby Pouchet.

The 28-year-old from Kralendijk will now prepare to represent Bonaire at the Miss Universe 2024 (73rd Miss Universe) pageant in Mexico later this year.

"There are few words to express how proud we are of you, as you said, the journey has not been easy but seeing the result shows that it was worth it," posted on Miss Bonaire's official social media page.

"In this new project, we at Miss Bonaire Organization are happy and proud of you. A new path has just opened for our youth and we will continue to look for talents to represent our beautiful Island of Bonaire."

Ruby holds a bachelor's degree in advertising from the University of Houston. She was crowned Miss Bonaire 2022 and went on to compete in Miss Grand International 2023 held in Vietnam last October.

Last March, she crowned her successor as Miss Bonaire, Angie Daza, during the Miss Bonaire 2024 final at Courtyard Bonaire Dive Resort.

"With a heart full of gratitude, I embrace the title of Miss Universe Bonaire. I promise to carry our culture and values with pride and show the universe what we’re made of. Thank you for the support and sweet messages," Ruby wrote online.

Bonaire, an island municipality of the Netherlands in the Caribbean, last joined Miss Universe in 1999, held in Trinidad and Tobago, with Julina Felida.
