Thursday's episode of the third edition of the beauty pageant Miss Diva Universe ended on a high note as the contestants walked the ramp in swimwear.

After walking the ramp in glittering dresses, contestants took the hottest challenge as they showed their toned figures when they walked the ramp in swimwear, designed by Nidhi Munim, The Times of India reported.

The swimwear round was judged by actors Zayed Khan, Rahul Khanna and supermodel Ujjwala Raut, who were joined by host and mentor Lara Dutta.

"I'm impressed with all the girls, particularly their fitness level. We will be judging them for their oomph factor and how comfortable they are in their skin," Lara said, according to the official Facebook page of Miss Diva.

"I am looking for a girl who has the panache to carry any outfit. The girls need to look drop dead gorgeous and catch everyone's attention," Zayed said.

"Apart from a beautiful body, the girls must have an attractive personality, as the winner will be heading for an international pageant," Rahul said.

"This is one of my favourite rounds. The girls whom I've met seem pretty confident. I am hoping they put up a good show," supermodel Ujjwala said.

The swimwear episode ended with elimination. Contestant Pooja Bisht, who hails from Kotdwara, Uttarakhand, said goodbye to the beauty pageant on Thursday night.

On 14 October, two contestants -- Shivani Shetty and Apoorva Sharma – were eliminated from the show, while Rashi Yadav was eliminated on 13 October.
