Rafaela Köhler Zanella height [1.82] (born August 9, 1986 in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil) is a medical student who represented her country in the Miss Universe 2006 pageant.

Miss Universe Brazil 2006

Zanella was elected Miss Brasil Universe on April 8, 2006, representing her state, Rio Grande do Sul. The pageant was marked by many controversies, especially the exclusion of some favourites from the Top 10. Zanella's first words as Miss Brazil Universe 2006 were: "I'd like to thank all of those who helped me and I promise you that I will do my best to bring back the Miss Universe crown to Brazil".

Miss Universe 2006

In the Miss Universe 2006 pageant, which took place in July 23, 2006 in Los Angeles, California, U.S., Zanella placed in the semifinals, among the Top 20. Many betting houses and casinos had Zanella as one of the Top 10 Miss Universe finalist for her facial beauty and physical fitness. Zanella made the top 20 but missed the second cut, many blamed Zanella's position due to her lack of interview skills and catwalk. Which became too obvious how difficult it was to advance further in the competition with the high level of delegants and competition in the pageant.
