Dear Pageant Girl,
There is DEFINITELY something in the water in Western Australia.
For the second year in a row, Troy and Sophia Barbagallo of Miss Universe WA have produced yet another winner and she is no other than our first ever Stunner Alert, the beautiful Renae Ayris!
Renae has always been a hot favourite with those who have followed the pageant from day 1 and you could tell from her photos that this girl has X Factor to boot.
Blessed with a killer body and a gorgeous face, many compare her to outgoing queen Scherri-Lee Biggs. However, get to know Renae and you can tell that despite the physical similarities, the same down to earth sweetness and open friendly nature, Renae is her own woman with a competitive drive that no doubt will serve her well in the Miss Universe competition.
We first met Renae face to face on Day 1 of the competition and she immediately lived up to the hype. She worked the stage like a seasoned pro at the Kooey Swimwear Prelim show and shone during the evening gown segment in her silver Ruth Tarvydas dress.
Some fast facts about Renae:
- She is 21 years old
- She was born on the same day as her great grandmother
- She has spent the last 16 years of her life as a dancer
- She was used as the body double for another famous beauty queen (ooooh don’t ask, don’t tell!)
- She joined the pageant to overcome her fear of public speaking
Dear Pageant Girl will be following her journey very closely and know that without a doubt, Renae will be a hot contender for the Miss Universe crown!
