The newly crowned Miss Israel, Nikol will represent her country at the Miss Universe 2018 pageant.
Nikol hails from the Afula, a quiet town south of Nazareth. She admits that she was totally surprised by her victory and many people are now comparing her with Hollywood superstar Gal Gadot who was Miss Israel 2004. “”It’s super flattering,” admits Nikol.
Now that she has the crown, she has an enormous responsibility ahead of her. The last Israeli woman to win the Miss Universe crown was Rina Messinger which was way back in 1976 while the last time Israel made it to the semis was in 2005 when Yelena Ralph made it to the Top 10 in Bangkok, Thailand.
