The pageant was held on August 23 in Las Vegas and was hosted by superstar Bret Michaels and Natalie Morales.

Jimena Navarrete took the competition by storm, commanding the stage in a violet bikini during the swimwear round and then slipping into a gorgeous red floor-length gown to show her more formal side.
