It’s almost that time again, the Miss Universe pageant. The Netherlands have won this prestigious title once, back in 1989, when Angela Visser did get the crown. The dutch delegates have been a favorite on many Miss Universe pageants, but not that many made the cut.
Many believe, Miss Nederland 2016, Zoey Ivery, will make the cut this year and become one of the top 5. That would mean that she will be the 14th girl to become a semi-finalist. When she would become a finalist, Zoey would just be the 6th girl from the Netherlands to be one.
Who are the girls that made it…?
Yasmin Verheijen became part of Team Miss Nederland in 2013. At that time she studied interior designer in Amsterdam, the place she grew up in. She finished her studies. Yasmin is from Indian, German, Indonesian, Chinese, & Dutch descent and that gave her that international look that the Miss Universe pageant is looking for. Although she wasn’t one of the big favorites at that time, there were some who really thought that the dutch bombshell would make a big impression on the judges. Wel she did! Yasmin became one of the finalists, something that didn’t happen since 1992.
Nowadays Yasmin is in a relationship with famous soccer player Khalid Boulahrouz since 2014 and she has her own fashion label. The picture is taken form the current Life After Football magazine.
