A total of 83 contestants from different countries were in the row for the Miss Universe pageant, but pushing them aside, the Miss Mexico Jimena reached the finals. She had to face a tough competition in the finals from the Miss Philippines Venus Raj, who had almost bagged the crown, but her unflattering answer at the final stages put her some crucial points behind.
However, Jimena Navarrete was born on February 22, 1988 at Guadalajara in Mexico. She studied nutrition prior to her participation in beauty pageants. Earlier, she has won the titles like the Nuestra Belleza Jalisco and the Nuestra Belleza Mexico as well. Now she has became the second consecutive winner from Jalisco following Karla Carrillo.
