A 20-year-old Boston University sophomore and a self-described “cellist-nerd” has won the highly coveted Miss Universe.

Olivia Culpo beat out 88 other beauty queens including Nigeria’s Isabella Ayuk, to take the title from Leila Lopes of Angola during the two-hour competition at the Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

With her win, Culpo has brought back the crown to the United States for the first time in more than a decade when she won the televised contest Wednesday.

Miss Philippines, Janine Tugonon, came in second, while Miss Venezuela, Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, placed third.

As Miss Universe, Culpo will receive an undisclosed salary, a wardrobe fit for a queen, a limitless supply of beauty products, and a luxury apartment in New York City.
