The preliminaries are underway for this weekend's Miss Universe pageant in Thailand.
Ninety-four beauty queens from around the world are competing for the crown and for the first time ever, an all-female panel of judges will decide their fate.
The seven judges are made up of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and former Miss Universes.
“This woman is such a power woman,” Nel-Peters said of Rose Summers. “[She is] such a powerful force, I know she'll do so well.”
Miss USA is also apologizing after video emerged of her mocking Miss Vietnam and Miss Cambodia for not speaking English.
“In a moment when I intended to admire the courage of a few of my sisters, I said something that I now realize can be perceived as not respectful, and I apologize,” she wrote on Instagram.
Miss Universe will air Sunday night on FOX.
