Yityish Aynaw (22) attended the gala dinner that was hosted by Israeli President Shimon Peres during US President Barack Obama’s Middle East trip.
When asked about President Obama, she said: “He’s an exciting man, a world-class hunk, charming and an extraordinary gentleman.”
President Obama reportedly told Yityish: “You are very beautiful… Michelle would have been very happy to be as tall as you are.”
However, the Israeli beauty queen said that she did not think that the US First Lady would be jealous of her.
Yityish is the first ever black Israeli to win in Israel’s prestigious beauty pageant.
