Beatrice Gomez travelled to Israel to represent the Philippines at the 70th Miss Universe pageant.
On her Instagram page, Beatrice shared a photo of herself onboard a plane.
“It’s game time Philippines! Just boarded and off to a cozy trip to the Land of Creation,” she wrote.
According to the beauty queen, she has been having mixed emotions as she gears up for the competition.
“This is finally it. After months of preparation, I’m finally going to do it in Israel. I am having a mix of emotions right now, but I am more than ready to fight,” she said in an interview with Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News before her flight.
Beatrice relayed that for the past weeks, she and her team have been busy preparing her outfits for the pageant.
“We spent weeks to prepare all of my outfits. Ang sabi nga ni Mama J (Jonas Gaffud), of all the Miss Universe representatives, ako 'yung may pinakakonti na dala. I actually love travelling light so I love na nagkasya lahat ng damit ko. Exciting 'yung fashion statement ko ngayon," she shared.
Beatrice was crowned as Miss Universe Philippines in September.
The 70th Miss Universe pageant will happen in Eilat, Israel this year and will have its live telecast on A27 channel 11 on December 13.
It will have its replays on Kapamilya Channel, Metro Channel, and iWantTFC.
