Tangia Zaman Methila was crowned the winner of Miss Universe Bangladesh 2020.

The 28-year-old model triumphed over nine other finalists and clinched the title in a national final held at the Radisson Blu Dhaka Water Garden in Dhaka on Saturday, April 3

She succeeded Shirin Akter Shela and was set to represent the country at the 69th Miss Universe pageant in the USA this May. 

However, according to an official statement by Miss Universe Bangladesh, the model will not be going to USA.

The organizers said, "Due to lockdown and travel restrictions we could not finalize the preparations. So we will not be able to participate Miss Universe 2020."

"We already informed Miss Universe USA management accordingly earlier this week," they added. 

Methila was previously named Miss Supranational Bangladesh 2019 and travelled to Katowice, Poland, to compete in the Miss Supranational 2019 pageant.

Ever since Methila's crowning, social media has been brimming with reactions. Some congratulated her while others called her out for knowing the judges a little too well and for posting a private video of a man that was commonly dubbed as sexual harassment. 

In a recent interview with Dhaka Tribune Showtime, she said that her target was to go to USA and win the title of Miss Universe 2020. 

"My target is Top 1. I feel if I target Top 1, then I can be in the Top 3 at least. If I target Top 10, then maybe I’ll reach Top 50. There’s nothing wrong with being a big dreamer."
