It took her three attempts before she finally clinched the Miss Universe Philippines title and the right to represent the country in the Miss Universe Pageant.
Right now, Pia Wurtzbach is now in Las Vegas to accomplish what only two Filipinas have achieved: bring home the Miss Universe crown.

Las Vegas has proven to be a lucky venue for two of three Pinay delegates. First, it was Venus Raj in 2010 who ended the ten year drought of the Philippines by clinching the 4th RU place then Janine Tugonon in 2012 for a 1st RU finish.
Watch out for Pia as she begins her pageant mission of conquering the Universe on December 20!
Good luck Pia!
