The organizers from the Reina Hispanoamericana pageant told Winwyn Marquez to safeguard the crown with her life.
You'll know why, once you get to know how much it costs.
KAMI learned this from ABS-CBN.com
A welcome party was held in Manila on Monday, and Winwyn shared what prizes she won from the pageant.
Among other prizes were, appliances, gowns, and other gifts.
“I had to leave them in Bolivia kasi hindi kayang dalhin dito. They gave me a lot of appliances, gowns, they gave me a lot of stuff, basically,” Marquez said.
But what truly stands out is the crown from the pageant.
It is a replica of the Reina Hispanoamericana crown, which is made of rubies, diamonds, and silver and is worth $7,000 which roughly costs around 357,000 in Philippine Peso.
“Sabi sa akin doon, please take care of the crown. Take care of it more than your life,” she shared.
“Sabi ko, yes, hawak-hawak ko siya kahit saan ako pumunta.”
She also won a cash prize, which she refuses to divulge.
Marquez is the first Filipina and Asian to conquer a Latina monopolized pageant.
She is the daughter of veteran actors Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno.
