Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines, Myanmar, and Thailand are among the top five finalists in the voting that feature 84 contestants from this year’s pageant which will be held on January 14 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Voting will conclude on January 12 at 6pm today local time and the winner of the fan-favourite vote will be announced after the competition.

The Lao contestant was also featured recently in a short video by the Miss Universe organization, alongside the other candidates in a lead up to the competition.

Earlier this month, Lor visited family members and supporters in the US who would be cheering her on as the first person of Hmong descent to participate in the Miss Universe pageant.

She also shot action scenes for a film and was interviewed on an American news channel as well. - Laotian Times
