IN PHOTOS: Miss Universe queens, World's Strongest Man join 'Grit and Glam' fashion show

MANILA, Philippines – The Miss Universe organization joined forces with the World's Strongest Man on Tuesday, May 8, for a fun summer fashion show and party held at the Cove.

Dubbed Grit and Glam, the 3 Miss Universe queens – Pia Wurtzbach, Iris Mittennaere, and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters were joined by the World Strongest Man's Hafthor Bjornsson, Martins Licis, and Robert Oberst for the event made possible by Frontrow International and the organizations under IMG.

The queens and the men had some fun as they participated in two fun challenges – the grit, wherein they had to run with dumbbells and carry and pass them on to each other, and the glam, where they had to show off on the catwalk.

Both challenges were won by the queens.
