Johannesburg – After landing in Johannesburg on Wednesday, Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters was welcomed by dozens of fans who were elated to see her. 

The festivities at the airport was followed by a press conference held at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton where Demi-Leigh got to spend some one-on-one time with the media. 

For those wondering what the pageant queen missed most about being home, the answer is “braaivleis”. The bubbly beauty got chuckles from the crowd when she revealed that she was looking forward to having a good old South African 'braai.'
