IT'S official - Rozanna Purcell is the seventh prettiest girl in the universe.

Competing against 83 beauties from all over the world who were vying for the coveted crown, the Tipperary girl, 19, came seventh in Miss Universe 2010.

And Derek Daniels from Rozanna's modelling agency Assets said it was a great achievement. He added: "We are very proud of Rozanna. Seventh place is phenomenal.

"But we are a bit disappointed as well though because Rozanna was always tipped to win. We were sure she would win it but she did really well. She did herself and everyone else proud."

Rozanna will be coming home on Thursday when she will celebrate with her friends and family.

Derek said: "I can't wait until she gets home. I texted her to see exactly when she was arriving but she must have been out celebrating her victory because she hasn't got back to me yet."

The grand finale was hosted by rock star Bret Michaels and NBC correspondent Natalie Morales and took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, USA.

The judging panel included magician Criss Angel and actors Jane Seymour, William Baldwin and Chazz Palminteri.

The Top 15 battled it out in the swimsuit, evening gown and interview rounds and then they were whittled down to the Top 10.

Rozanna was pipped to the post by Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete, while Miss Jamaica Yendi Phillipps and Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell bagged the second and third positions.
