Karol Croes will carry the hopes of her country Aruba in the upcoming Miss Universe 2023 pageant which will be held in El Salvador. She is 27 years old and she is an entrepreneur and a model. She also took the Miss Photogenic Award. There were five finalists who competed during the finals. Finishing as first runner-up is Gavriëla Bozo.

Aruba is yet to win the Miss Universe crown but in 1996, Taryn Mansell almost did it by finishing as first runner-up. Last year, Kiara Arends failed to land in the semis. Aruba is currently ranked 69th at the Big5 Ranking.
