Tegan Martin wins Miss Universe Australia 2014!

When moments are captured more than just smiles for Tegan Martin, our new Miss Universe Australia 2014.

Congratulations from JC Indahaus Media Correspondents, Cassidy Poon and Johnny Saluni for your amazing crowning moment! Thank you to Deborah Miller, Owner of Miss Universe Australia and her organising team, for another great year!

Newcastle-born model Tegan Martin has won the Miss Universe Australia 2014 crown. It was a case of third time lucky for Martin, 21, who was first runner-up in the 2011 and 2013 national finals. The pageant veteran triumphed over a top five which included her good friend Natalie Roser, Brisbane's Danielle Johnson, and Briden Star and Monika Radulovic from Sydney. Thirty-one hopefuls entered the Friday night final, which was held in Melbourne.

The group was whittled down to 10 after a number of rounds including the swimsuit competition before the final five was announced.

Martin was one of two finalists in the competition from Newcastle, also the hometown of former Miss Universe Australia Jennifer Hawkins, who famously went on to win the World Miss Universe title in 2004.

The competition, which spanned over several intense days of preliminary rounds, came to a head last night as the judging panel delivered their verdict at the national final in Melbourne, narrowing the 31 competitors down to a mere ten, dominated by women from the Eastern states - three from Victoria, two from Queensland and five from New South Wales.

The final five girls had to answer questions about everything from fashion globalisation, domestic violence in relationships, the gender gap in pay and the latest Government budget.

The judges that crowned Miss Universe Australia included Gina Liano from The Real Housewives Of Melbourne, Olympic swimming champion Liesel Jones and choreographer Jason Coleman.

There have been two Miss Universe title holders from Australia: Kerry Anne Wells in 1972 and Jennifer Hawkins in 2004. Hawkins was the first 'Miss Universe Australia' candidate and the first from the pageant to win Miss Universe. The current Miss Universe Australia is Olivia Wells from Melbourne. Wells unfortunately failed to place in the semi-finals at Miss Universe 2013.

We celebrated this spectacular glamour after party event, at one of Melbourne leading venues 'The Trust'. We were there to support and meet the most stunning girls in Australia and our very own Miss Universe Australia 2014, Tegan Martin!
