During an interview with DZMM on Sunday, Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz shares her thoughts whether Philippine bet Rachel Peters stands a chance on the Miss Universe 2017 pageant or not.
KAMI learned the news from ABS-CBN.com
"I think that Rachel, she's a standout. I think somehow, somewhere, she will come up at least in the top five," Diaz commented.
"Bathing suit pa lang 'di ba? Knockout na," she said.
Although Diaz believes that Peters has a great chance, she advice not to expect too much to avoid disappointment.
"We must not always expect para hindi tayo disappointed pero I think Rachel will do well," she said.
She also acknowledged the difference in pageants now and during her time.
"With the internet, social media, talagang we are so aware of what it takes. Hindi na by luck ... everything is already so available to us."
She also has something to say about improving one's appearance by doing surgery.
"Kahit ako hindi ako uubra now because if I'm lacking in bo*bs, no matter what hindi ako magpapadagdag ng bo*bs," she added.
Gloria Diaz was the first Filipina to win the Miss Universe crown in 1969 in Florida.
Good luck to Rachel Peters! May you bring home the crown!
