By becoming Miss Nepal 2023, Jane will attend the next Miss Universe 2023 pageant, which will take place on November 18th of this year in El Salvador, where a successor to the current Miss Universe R’Bonney Gabriel from the United States will be chosen.
For its part, the most famous beauty pageant in the world has been involved in many controversies in recent years, after accusations of fraud in the last edition, accusations of abuse in Miss Indonesia and the millionaire debts of the owner of the pageant, Anne Jakrajutatip.
