- Kim could not believe that Thailand, South Africa and of course, Philippines, did not make it to the Top 10
- Others were hesitant about the newly-crowned Miss Universe Miss Mexico that their congratulations seems to have been done out of respect
Celebrities, like many other Filipinos, also reacted to the win of Miss Mexico in the Miss Universe pageant.
Kim Chiu took to Twitter to express her feelings about the results, to the point of asking how it became like that.
"Anu daw nangyari? Paano naging ganun???...“please enlighten me. Hindi Brazil? Not Peru? Not India? No Thailand? No South Africa? At higit sa lahat walang Philippines?!!!! Ano daw???"
She then proceeded to congratulate Rabiya, saying that no matter what happens, the Philippines will love her.
Another celeb who also did not mince words in reacting to the win of Miss Mexico was Maris Racal.
When Rabiya did not make it to the Top 10, the actress was rooting for Miss India.
"??? well that was unexpected."
"kahit si miss brazil nalang sana?"
Samantha Bernardo tweeted, "Mali pala ako… ano ba to joke time?!?! Anyway congrats to Miss Mexico."
Rabiya Occeña Mateo is an Indian-Filipino model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe Philippines in 2020. 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."
