The Miss Universe pageant was held on Thursday and the winner was an American with the interested name of R-Bonney Gabriel. And while the winner’s name is a pip, that is far from the only oddity pageant viewers were confronted with during the Jan. 12 broadcast.

Before we get to the wackiness of this year’s pageant, let’s explain the winner’s name.

R’Bonney Gabriel was born in Texas in 1994 to a Filipino father, Remigio Bonzon “R. Bon” Gabriel, and an American mother, Dana Walker. Her name is sort of feminization of her father’s name, as you can probably guess. It is an interesting one, to be sure.
