Will Miss Philippines be the 2015 Miss Universe?

Tonight, we await with giddiness and bated breath if indeed Pia Wurtzbach will fulfill our cherished wish that Santa Claus will give us our third Miss Universe crown tomorrow.

Will the stars align in favor of this exquisite Filipina- German beauty? Without doubt, Pia has been one of the strongest bets that the Philippines has ever sent to the world’s most exciting and most prestigious beauty competition?

  Miss Universe 1973: Margie Moran
Gloria Diaz is the first Filipina to win the Miss Universe crown in 1969 followed by Margie Moran in 1973. We almost won in 1999 with Miriam Quiambao as 1st RU to Miss Botswana and of course Janine Tugonon in 2012.

Majority of pageant websites, blogs and pageant experts have pegged her as one of the frontrunners to be the second Miss Universe queen within 2015 after giving one of the most splendid and breathtaking swimsuit and evening gown presentations during the Presentation Show a couple of nights ago.  

Your Roving Eye believes that her strongest competition will be from USA and Colombia. Along with Pia Wurtzbach, my other favorite girls are the mademoiselle from France and the girls from Belgium and Vietnam.

Her Miss Universe journey started in 2013 where she finished as 1st Runner Up. She came back last year but ended up as semifinalist. This year, she was finally vindicated and her stellar performance has been rewarded.

Tomorrow is anybody’s ballgame. With a new owner, expect changes including the selection format and the prototype of winner that will be crowned.

Regardless of the outcome, she has made us proud.

Long May You Reign Queen Pia!
