Explaining her reason to ditch the road and enter the beauty contest, Renae said: “I’ve always been a tomboy, I love camping and fishing but I’m bored of seeing all these models being in it – what do they do?”

Renae is not the only out of the ordinary contestant in this year Miss Universe Australia. Stephanie Bentvelzen (second to the left in the picture), a former detective has also joined the competition for the new beauty queen to “learn something different”.
