Kylie Verzosa now has a successor.

Kevin Lilliana of Indonesia was crowned Miss International 2017 by Verzosa in Tokyo on Tuesday, beating 68 candidates from across the globe.

All candidates competed in the national costume, swimsuit and evening gown competitions before the Top 15, Top 8, and Top 5 were selected. 

“I still can't believe it. It’s still a dream come true for me,” Lilliana said.
