After the much-anticipated Miss Universe pageant, Pia Wurtzbach gave a heartfelt message to three beauty queens: newly crowned Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, and Philippine bet Gazini Ganados.
“[Gazini], you are courageous. You are beautiful. And we are so proud of you. Thank you for representing the Philippines well. The rest is still unwritten,” she wrote.
For Catriona, she said, “You have left us all feeling inspired! What a beautiful reign. Manila, she’s coming home.”
Lastly, for Zozibini, “YOU are our [Miss Universe] 2019! You are strength and grace in one — truly an example of what an empowered woman is all about. Hope to meet you one day.
Pia tried her luck three times in Binibining Pilipinas to win the Miss Universe Philippines title before eventually ending the 42-year drought for the Philippines after being crowned as Miss Universe 2015.
