Miss Universe 2022 has officially begun and the delegates from all over the world are preparing to compete at the 71st Miss Universe. However, there are a few delegates who have shown immense potential even if they have not made it the seasoned hot picks lists for the crown. While not so ‘popular’, these delegates have an immense amount of confidence, perseverance, and dedication to perform well on the finale night and win placements at Miss Universe 2022.

Dark Horse candidates are those candidates about whom little is known but who unexpectedly wins or succeeds. In a series of features, lets know more about the Top 10 ‘Dark horse’ delegates of Miss Universe 2022.



Alexandrine Belle-Étoile, representing Mauritius, is all set to win the first ever placement for her country at Miss Universe. While Alexandrine was not in the limelight as she began her preparations in the competition, the stunning Mauritius beauty has arrived in New Orleans with her A game!

From rocking the MUBA cosmetics photoshoots to keeping her fashion game on point at the events being held, Alexandrine is also being called the ‘barbie’ of Miss Universe 2022 and we agree! Now, Alexandrine has already raised her country’s flag high as she represented her country at Miss Supranational 2022.



Not just that, Alexandrine created history at the finale of Miss Supranational 2022 and placed in the Top 12. She also ended up winning the title of Miss Supranational Africa. With all her experience at international competition, Alexandrine will surely be a strong contender at Miss Universe 2022. On educational front, Alexandrine is a degree holder in Fine Arts and teaches Arts and French in a private primary (elementary) school.

Miss Universe 2022, the 71st Miss Universe pageant, is all set to be held at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States on 14th January 2023. Miss Universe 2021 Harnaaz Sandhu of India will crown her successor at the end of the event finale.
