Mona Grudt Bittrick (born 6 April 1971 in Hell, Stjørdal, Norway) is a Norwegian TV Host, dancer, editor and beauty queen who was crowned Miss Universe 1990. She also became the only Norwegian to capture the Miss Universe.
She became the clear favorite of the judges, winning the interview and swimsuit preliminaries and all three segments of the semi-finals. During the 1990 Miss Universe competition, she listed herself as "The beauty queen from Hell" as a publicity stunt (because she was born in Hell, Norway; apart from that, 'hell' also means 'luck' in Norwegian). Her runners-up were Carole Gist, (United States) and Lizeth Mahecha, (Colombia).
During her reign, she appeared in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation as "Ensign Graham" in the episode "Identity Crisis". Grudt was also the last Miss Universe to accompany Bob Hope on his USO tour.
