At the rehearsal of Miss World 2019 finals held just hours ago, the winner of Top Model competition was announced and she is none other than Nyekachi Douglas of Nigeria.


Standing a whopping 184 cm tall, Nyekachi is the tallest contestant in the competition this year. She enchanted everyone with her stunning beauty, poise and perfect walk. The African beauty for sure was the ideal choice for the title. Nyekachi was also a part of our favourites for the title.

Nyekachi has already made it to top 40 as she has already won the Head to Head Challenge. The winner of Top Model also advances to Top 40 but since she already has a place in the Top, her win is another feather to her cap.
