The five lucky candidates who made it to the top 5 of the prestigious Miss Universe 2020 pageant have been revealed.
These are Mexico, India, Brazil, Dominican Republic, and Peru. The five contenders have already competed in the Q&A competition with each of the ladies giving it their best during the said round.
Some of the questions that were asked came from relevant issues that are hounding society at present.
There were questions about protest, women empowerment, leadership and the like. After the Q&A, the contestants were asked to make their final statements.
In the final segment, they were tasked to pick out a topic and to say their opinion or their thoughts on it.
Unfortunately, Miss Thailand, whom many Filipinos were also rooting for, did not make the cut.
Now, the only Asian left in the pageant is Miss India. Rabiya Mateo made it to top 21 but not in the top 10.
Rabiya Occeña Mateo is an Indian-Filipino model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe Philippines in 2020. She represented the Philippines at the Miss Universe 2020 pageant, held on May 16, 2021 in Florida. Rabiya was born on November 14, 1996 to an Indian-American father and a Filipino mother who later separated.

A video of MJ Lastimosa exclaiming "Ay Catriona" as Miss Thailand was doing the evening gown preliminary segment has gone viral. Miss Thailand was walking and when she turned, it was then that the beauty queen exclaimed "Ay Catriona." She also tried to say "Hi" to Miss Thailand but since she was not given any attention she just laughed it off. The video has been shared and viewed on Twitter thousands of times.
A fake account on Twitter is now claiming as the official 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."
