The model, hiking enthusiast and foodie explained that the bikini portion of the contest caused her some stress.

The food blogger replied, saying: “Walking in a bikini in Miss Universe down a stairs in heels with millions of people watching on TV – dead.”

“The girl before me slipped, I was sweating!”

The podcaster also described her hike up Mount Kilimanjaro as one of the most physically and mentally taxing experiences, along with taking part in a triathlon.
