Representing Copiapo, Daniela Elsa Nicolás, 28, was crowned Miss Universe Chile 2020 on November 20, 2020. She bested seven other finalists.

Pablo Schilling hosted the Miss Universe Chile 2020 coronation night, which was held at the studio of Mediamix TV in Santiago, Chile. The eight finalists were chosen from 17 semifinalists.

Before the eight finalists were chosen, Nicolás won a special award. Renowned international photographer Fadil Berisha chose her as the winner of the Miss Photogenic award.

While Nicolas won the Miss Universe Chile 2020 title, Anita María Rojas of La Florida was crowned Nuestra Latinoamericana Chile 2020. Romina Denecken of Colina, Karina Pérez Gres of Ovalle and Sofía Depassier of the international Chilean community finished in the Top 4.


As a professional actress, Nicolas has starred in four soap operas. She is a member of the cast of the Chilevisión show “Gemelas.”

Also, the newly crowned Miss Universe Chile 2020 is professional make-up artist and journalism and sign language student. She is currently completing a diploma in business and retail.

Since Nicolas was a little girl, she was into sports. She enjoys horse riding, snow and water skiing, windsurfing and diving.


Aside from acting, Nicolas also enjoys dancing, singing and playing the piano. As a communicator, she has worked for the international networks ESPN and Fox Sports.

Nicolas is also a member of Partamos Por Algo (Let’s Start Something), an initiative that has been helping those in need during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. She is a volunteer of the Corporación Anacroj, which helps more than 800 children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis from all over Chile.

Miss Universe Chile 2020 is the 57th edition of the national beauty pageant that selects Chile’s representative to Miss Universe. It was Nicolas’s first ever beauty pageant.

If Nicolas wins Miss Universe 2020, she will be the beauty pageant’s second titleholder from Chile. The first one was Miss Universe 1987 Cecilia Carolina Bolocco Fonck of Región Metropolitana.
