Ekta Chaudharyâ€™s Miss Universe dream shattered
Miss India Universe Ekta Chaudhary’s missed the Miss Universe title. She failed to make it to the top 15 finalists of the Miss Universe 2009 held in Bahamas. Expectation from her was high but her early knocked out disappointed a lot back home in India. With early exit, Ekta’s dream to become Miss Universe shattered.
The top 15 finalists who contested for the Miss Universe crown were from Albania, Australia, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, France, Iceland, Kosovo, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa, the US and Venezuela.
Finally, Miss Venezuela Stefania Fernandez has been crowned the 2009 Miss Universe pageant. Miss Australia Rachael Finch and Miss Kosovo Gona Dragusha were crowned the first and the second runner-ups respectively. The last Indian to win the Miss Universe crown was Lara Dutta way back in 2000.
