Singer JK Labajo took to social media to show his support for his girlfriend Maureen Wroblewitz, who is one of the candidates in the 2021 edition of Miss Universe Philippines.
On Instagram on Monday, July 26, JK posted the official headshot of Maureen for the competition, before encouraging his followers to support his "crush" by voting for her on the Miss Universe PH app.
"Hi po gud pm sa inyong lahat paki download po yung miss universe ph app tapos paki vote po yung crush ko na si Maureen Christa Wroblewitz para po pansinin niya na po ako. Panget po yung mga hindi po susuporta sa kanya. Salamat po," JK said.
In the comments section of his post, Maureen wrote, along with a heart emoji: "Hi crush."
Meanwhile, on her Instagram account, Maureen also asked her fans to help her get in the Top 75 by voting for her on the app.
The voting for the Headshot Challenge will run until Sunday, August 1 at 11:59 pm.
Maureen, who first rose to fame when she won the fifth season of Asia's Next Top Model in 2017, confirmed that she is competing in the Miss Universe PH last week via a social media post.
"It’s true what I’ve said in my interviews. I’ve always considered dipping my toes in pageantry and committing to it when I felt ready. It was not until I received my sign from the Universe, that I knew I couldn’t wait for that feeling of readiness and that I’d have to take that first step in order to feel ready," she said on Instagram.
"I’ve shared the importance of getting out of your comfort zone as a means to grow as a person and that’s what I’m doing once again. This feels new and to be honest, I’m terrified but I’ve come to realize that I just fear the unknown. What I fear most though is living a life of regrets. I don’t want to grow old thinking that I should’ve joined, alternatively I would like to say ‘I’m glad I’ve joined’. I’ve learned to stop saying ‘one day’ and instead I say ‘day 1’. I hope through this I inspire you to reach for the Universe. It’s all up to you. You can achieve anything you put your mind to and sometimes if you believe hard enough the Universe will conspire in helping you succeed," she added.
Aside from Maureen, actress Kisses Delavin, TikTok star Ayn Bernos, Miss Globe 2019 2nd runner-up Leren Mae Bautista, and Miss Supranational 2018 1st runner-up Katrina Dimaranan are also among the delegates for this year's Miss Universe PH pageant.
The coronation night is scheduled for September 25. Rabiya Mateo, who represented the Philippines at the 69th Miss Universe pageant, will be crowning her successor.
