- Rabiya Mateo was effusive in her gratefulness and praise for former Ms. Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach
- This was after a recording of a conversation between Pia and some unidentified female personalities surfaced online where the former Miss U titleholder was heard declaring she’s all for Rabiya
- The Philippines’ representative to the 2020 Miss Universe pageant immediately took to social media to express her gratitude
- Pia was one of the first celebrities to express support for and endorse Rabiya to be the next Miss Universe
Rabiya Mateo took to social media recently to express her gratitude for the outpouring of love and support, particularly from 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach.
Pia is one of the first celebrities to publicly express her support for Rabiya and to endorse the Ilongga beauty queen to be the next Miss Universe.
Earlier, an audio recording of a conversation between Pia and some unidentified female personalities surfaced on the net.
“Basta ako 100% Rabiya ako. Sorry na lang sabihin nyong biased ako pero yun talaga eh!” Pia said.
Rabiya was so happy to hear it herself that she immediately posted on her Instagram Stories a snippet of the recorded conversation, and captioned it with her thanks.
“Thank you Miss @piawurtzbach! 100% din na mahal kita!” the Ilongga beauty queen said.
Pia’s all-out support appeared very much different from the support expressed by former 2018 Ms. Universe Catriona Gray.
A week ago, Catriona drew flak after she seemed to have avoided endorsing Rabiya for the crown and recently dropped the Ilongga beauty queen from her top 6 preferred national costumes.
After a great degree of bashing, Catriona started mentioning Rabiya’s name in her social media postings.
Rabiya Occeña Mateo is an Indian-Filipino model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe Philippines in 2020. She is set to represent the Philippines at the Miss Universe 2020 pageant, which will be held on May 16, 2021 in Florida. Rabiya was born on born November 14, 1996 to an Indian-American father and a Filipino mother who later separated.
A few days ago, Rabiya proved she’s got what it takes when her Instagram followers ballooned to more than one million as of Friday, making her the most followed candidate of Miss Universe 2020. She is the first candidate in this year’s beauty pageant to have amassed such a huge following on the particular social media platform. Recently, Rabiya earned praises and respect from her fellow Filipinos, as well as many other people around the world, upon learning that her national costume weighed around 21 kilos and she carried it with grace.
Catriona Gray, naging bukambibig si Rabiya Mateo sa mga social media posts; netizens nakahinga nang maluwag
Her popularity on social media proved too juicy for some posers who started presenting themselves as Rabiya on social media platforms like Twitter. There is an account on the said micro-blogging platform claiming as the official Twitter account of Rabiya Mateo. However, the beauty queen stated that she has no Twitter account. Rabiya declared this to MJ Lastimosa, who is one of her biggest supporters, who went with the whole Miss U crew. She categorically said, “wala akong Twitter.”
