    More Details Hide Details Alice enjoys writing short stories, and her hobbies include volleyball and yoga. Panikian is of Bulgarian and Armenian ancestry, which comes through her paternal grandfather and accounts for her Armenian surname. She came to Canada with her parents when she was five years old.

  • TEENAGE
  • 2003
    Age 17
    She attended William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate Institute in Toronto, and graduated in 2003.
    More Details Hide Details At 6'0" (1.83 m) she is not only the tallest major national titleholder in Canadian history, but also had earned a significant amount of attention from the world press as one of the strongest candidates to succeed to then-reigning Miss Universe, Natalie Glebova, also from Canada. As no country has ever won the title back-to-back (later achieved by Dayana Mendoza and Stefanía Fernández in 2009, both of them from Venezuela), Panikian had a significant historical hurdle to jump despite many pundits who argue that she was an even stronger candidate than her predecessor.
