This Map Shows Latin American Women Rule Miss Universe

It's no secret Latin American women are beautiful.

On Sunday, Miss Colombia won the Miss Universe title for the first time in over 50 years. The gorgeous Paulina Vega was facing some tough competition, especially from first runner-up and Miss USA Nia Sanchez. But the South American beauty took home the crown in the end.

But Sunday night's win didn't come as a surprise to those who've followed the pageant over the years. Latin American beauty queens have been consistently crowned since the Miss Universe pageant began in 1952. In fact, over one-third of the total Miss Universe winners come from the region.

Venezuela is especially known for its seven titles, second only to the U.S. who has a total of eight. Puerto Rico follows close behind with five crowns while Mexico, Brazil and now Colombia each have two.
