Miss Albania Lindita Idrizi is a 20-year-old Social Science student from Elbasan, Albania.

Pageant fans were left guessing who won Miss Photogenic and Miss Congeniality in the 65th Miss Universe as the special awards were not handed out during the coronation event at the Mall of Asia Arena on Monday.

"Honestly, we didn't have time... There was so much that we wanted to fit into the show," Miss Universe Organization president Paula Shugart said.

Miss Korea Jenny Kim was voted by fellow candidates as Miss Congeniality, while Miss Albania Lindita Idrizi was named as Miss Photogenic, Shugart said.

Winners of the Miss Universe special awards will each receive a $1,000 cash gift from the organization.

The Philippines' Pia Wurtzbach passed on the Miss Universe crown to France's Iris Mittenaere, while Haiti's Raquel Pelissier and Colombia's Andrea Tovar finished as first and second runners-up, respectively.

Miss Korea Jenny Kim is a 23-year-old college student taking up degrees in International Office Administration, and English Language and Literature.
