Hello,Rob. I've been watching the miss universe pageant for the last few years and I also observe the heights of contestants(I'm not sure how accurate those listings are though). According to my observation, the tallest candidate always turns out to be about 6'1(in 2016, the tallest one was Miss Jamaica who is 6'2) and the shortest is always like 5'5 or thereabouts. So, going by that, what do you think is the average/ideal height range for a miss universe contestant?
Sorry for long comment.
Thanks in advance.
It would be interesting to note the height of the winners over last 20 years, as that may be a best indication of the kind of average...

How tall do you think her first runner up is? She is listed at 173 cm and she looks it. Here she is right after the Miss Universe pageant with Paris Hilton (who's wearing platform heels).
Paris doesn't edge her out. Miss Japan is wearing the same sandals that she wore in her evening gown at Miss Universe.
So I think you are right that she's under 5'8" because in spite of the camera angle and platform heels, Zuleyka couldn't edge Kurara Chibana out who's supposed to be an inch shorter than her. She was the last to be called out into the top 5 so she had a camera angle advantage being at the rightmost yet she couldn't tower over Miss Japan and Miss Paraguay who's probably 5'11".

Rob, she was the same height as her first runner-up Kurara Chibana who is a full 5'8". The first runner up was wearing sandals whereas Zuleyka wore extremely angled high heels with a bit of a platform. The first runner-up was from Japan and her successor won Miss Universe. Thus, Kurara and Zuleyka share a successor, Riyo Mori whose height is given as 1.74 m. In Miss Universe, she towers over Zuleyka whereas with Kurara, the difference is not that obvious.
last time I looked I thought 5ft 7, but it's not impossible she could be 5ft 7.5-8.

I am surprised at the average vote! I could see Zuleyka being 5'7.25" though!

Miss Universe section, Rob?
There's a few now on the site, but not enough.

@Borats Chicken, I don't know what world she's thick in with her washboard abs, but you may be referring to her lovely posterior.

She's always wearing 4-5" heels. When I have seen her in "regular shoes" she looks 5'8 max. Very pretty!

No surprise she was a Miss Universe, although I can't believe she is 5ft 9 though.
