Pia Wurtzbach shares why she won’t be judging this year’s Miss Universe beauty pageant.
After taking home the Miss Universe crown in 2015, Pia Wurtzbach said she is focusing on her local career in showbiz this year as opposed to previous years where she was still fulfilling her duties to the international organization. “So what happens with that is I join with Miss Universe every time they meet me or I join with them every once in a while but of course not to take the spotlight from the current Miss Universe. So it’s been that sort of balance and right now I can’t fly to New York yet or back to Miss Universe because I have a lot of work lined up here. A lot of commitments that I have to fulfill first before I can move back to the States to fulfill my other dreams. So for now I’m focusing on getting everything done here first, fulfilling all my duties in the Philippines first and then I’ll start with other passions,” she shared.
With this year’s pageant rumored to be taking place in Asia, Pia explained why people should be patient with regards to the final announcement. “It usually takes a long time before they announce. Like yung ginawa yung Miss Universe dito ‘di ba it was almost a few months before lang so maybe soon. June pa lang naman ngayon. We’ll see. I’m excited for what’s in store. Sana malapit lang para madaling puntahan ng mga Pilipino,” she said.
After her stint as one of the judges in last year’s Miss Universe pageant, Pia Wurtzbach shared why she will not be occupying the same seat for the next couple of years. “I don’t think the judges repeat so it’s going to be a long time before I can judge again,” she added.
The new Blue Water Day Spa ambassador also admitted she is excited about Binibining Pilipinas-Universe Catriona Gray’s chances in Miss Universe 2018. “Oo naman I think that she has a very good chance. Total package siya at pag sinabing total package yun talaga wala kang mapipintas sa kanya. So very exciting ang Miss Universe this year,” she admitted.
