Who else wished that Miss Universe Philippines Beatrice Luigi Gomez would pick Marian Rivera‘s name from the bowl when it was her turn during the top 5 Q&A portion? I was certainly hoping that would happen. I told my husband it would just be funny and downright kismet if that scenario happen. A judge from the Philippines asking the question for the PH candidate to answer. But, the universe surely had a different path so it didn’t happen.
Anyhoo, right after the pageant, Marian and Beatrice finally had a chance to talk to each other. Judging from this video, Marian was telling Bea how proud she is of her. 2 Filipina Queens empowering each other and making their country proud.
