TER­RI­TORY model Ta­han Lew Fatt has her sights set on the stars af­ter be­ing an­nounced as a fi­nal­ist for Miss Uni­verse.

Ms Lew Fatt, a for­mer grid girl and con­tes­tant on TV’s Big Brother who grew up in Dar­win, has been an­nounced as a Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia Vic­to­rian fi­nal­ist, beat­ing a field of 30 to move one step closer to re­al­is­ing a life­long dream.

Her Su­per­car driver part­ner Dave Reynolds said he ex­pected Ms Lew Fatt’s bid to fol­low in the foot­steps of Jen­nifer Hawkins to be challenging but re­al­is­tic.

“She is an ex­tremely good look­ing girl with a per­son­al­ity to match. She has a won­der­ful heart and has a di­verse cul­ture with an Abo­rig­i­nal, Chi­nese and Malaysian back­ground. I am sure she will im­press the judges.’’

And for those who think he is punch­ing above his weight?

“A bloke once stopped me on the street,’’ said Reynolds. “He looked at me and said ‘shit you have hit that one out of the park’. “I am ex­pect­ing a lot more of that should she be­come Miss Uni­verse.’’
