Scherri-Lee Biggs (born 1 September 1990) is a South African Australian beauty queen and pageant titleholder from Watermans Bay, Perth, Australia.[1] She won the title of Miss Universe Australia, on 7 July 2011.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Biggs was born in 1990 in South Africa, but emigrated with her family to Australia when she was 12 and attended St Mary's Anglican Girls' School. From a young age, she was schooled in dance and ballet, but started to pursue a career in modelling at age 16, after being scouted by Vivien's modelling agency.[1]

Miss Universe[edit]

Biggs, a popular delegate and favourite to win the competition,[1][2][3] became Miss Universe Australia on 7 July 2011 in a ceremony held at Melbourne's Sofitel hotel, outdoing 21 other delegates from across the country. This certified her with a place in the Miss Universe pageant, held in São Paulo, Brazil on 12 September 2011, finishing in the Top 10.[1]

In August 2014, Biggs was announced as the new weather presenter on Nine News Perth replacing Sally Ayhan.
