CHECK out the latest sizzling shots of Miss Universe Ireland Rozanna Purcell in a swimsuit shoot for the pageant.
The 19-year-old student is making a big splash among her rivals at the final of the international beauty pageant, which takes place this year in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay hotel on August 23.
And judging by her subtle glow, it looks like she has definitely learnt her lesson from her last fake tanning disaster.
The beauty has now been installed as one of the favourites to come home victorious with the coveted crown after she spent the past two weeks receiving one-onone tuition from top pageant coach Miguel Martinez.
The Clonmel-born model also revealed how she’ll be keeping a video diary of her whole experience and will update her followers with regular links to YouTube.
The UCD graduate has become something of a celebrity in Colombia, where she has been holed up since July 22 completing an intensive pre-pageant training programme.
The model, who has spent up to three hours in the gym a day since being crowned Miss Universe Ireland last month, says it’s all been worthwhile.
“The last two weeks were amazing in Colombia,” she explained. “Miguel and I have been training extremely hard. The body’s in great shape.”
