The first-ever black Miss Israel has declared Barack Obama a "world-class hunk".
Yityish Aynaw, 22, was part of a gala dinner hosted by Shimon Peres, Israel's president during Mr Obama's Middle East trip. She recently became the first Israeli of Ethiopian origin to win Israel's premier beauty queen contest.
When asked about the US president, she replied, according to Israeli outlet Yediot Aharonot: "He's an exciting man, a world-class hunk, charming and an extraordinary gentleman."
She added that she did not think Michelle Obama, the First Lady, would be jealous.
Mr Obama reportedly told Ms Aynaw: "You are very beautiful ... Michelle would have been very happy to be as tall as you are."
Ms Aynaw, who emigrated to Israel from Ethiopia with her Jewish grandparents after the death of her mother when she was 12, earlier this month said Mr Obama was a role model "who broke down barriers, a source of inspiration".
Mr Obama's trip to the Middle East has been notable for a number of reasons
In an unexpected diplomatic breakthrough, Mr Obama helped smooth the relationship between Israel and Turkey. Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, called his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to apologise for an incident in May 2010 when nine Turkish activists were killed in a commando raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.
On Thursday, Mr Obama called on Israel's people to put themselves in the shoes of Palestinians and pressure the country's political leadership to seek peace.
