Miriam Quiambao expressed her support for Rabiya Mateo ahead of the 69th Miss Universe pageant this coming May in America.
Miriam shared on Instagram Stories a photo of herself and Rabiya in one frame as pageant fans noticed similarities between the two of them.
Miriam wrote, "Praying for you @rabiyamateo."
Miriam placed first runner-up in the Miss Universe 1999 pageant.
Other Pinay beauty queens also extended their support for Rabiya.
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach delivered a care package to Rabiya ahead of the competition.
"It is just like little pageant essentials that you need when you are competing and also a few good luck charms," Pia shared in her recent interview with ABS-CBN News.
Meanwhile, Miss Universe Philippines 2019 Gazini Ganados shared her message for Rabiya in her interview with Teleradyo.
"Rabiya, you already know how much we are here to support you, how much we love you and rooting for you. We know that you will make us Filipinos proud and laban lang talaga," Gazini said.
Rabiya is currently in Florida as she prepares for the Miss Universe pageant happening on May 16 (US time).
