- Sabi pa nga ng marami, she's the most well-prepared and seasoned Miss Universe Philippines candidate dahil she first tried to conquer the world in Miss World 2016
- Pero hindi alam ng nakakarami na ang pagiging 'most well-prepared' at 'seasoned' ni Catriona Gray sa beauty pageants ay nagsimula pa way back noong 5 years old pa lang siya
- Tinanghal ang truly deserving 2018 Miss Universe winner bilang Eat Bulaga's 1999 Little Miss Philippines sa Sydney, Australia
Indeed, 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Gray was truly meant to become a beauty queen not only in the Philippines but in the universe.
At ang pagka most well-prepared at seasoned niya sa beauty pageant ay hindi lang nag-umpisa nang nanalo siyang 3rd-runner sa Miss World noong 2016, on top of other special awards, as reports stated.
KAMI learned that Catriona first started her beauty queen journey in 1999 when she was just 5 years old.
Nagsimula ang kanyang karera bilang isang beauty queen sa famed segment ng Eat Bulaga ang Little Miss Philippines.
Ayon pa sa balita, na napag-alaman namin sa CNN Philippines, Catriona Gray won the latter and crowned in Sydney, Australia.
Proud naman si Catriona na ibahagi sa kanyang ngayo'y 3.1 million followers ang iilang mga larawan nang pagsali niya sa 1999 Little Miss Philippines sa Eat Bulaga.
Sabi pa niya sa kanyang caption sa isang post, noong May 2016, that seems to be a prelude of her in joining Miss World Philippines 2016:
"Relived a few childhood memories today going though some old photos! Always being a goofball and posing for pictures even then! and how cute was I in my first #LittleMissPhilippines pageant at 5 years old? ...perhaps 17years is a long enough time to wait...?"
Nalungkot at naiyak man si Catriona Gray na masungkit ang korona sa Miss World 2016 ay ginamit naman niya ito para lumaban pa at bumalik sa world stage na mas preparado at handang-handa.
And so she did, she came back strong, ready, and confidently beautiful with a heart and absolutely quick-witted.
Thus, she took the most coveted crown in the beauty pageant scene ever as she was hailed as the 2018 Miss Universe in Bangkok, Thailand.
Ika pa nga nila, ang ating 24-year-old Miss Universe 2018 wasn't meant for the world's crown but the universe, rather.
From being Eat Bulaga's 1999 Little Miss Philippines to 2018 Miss Universe, you're truly amazing.
Congratulations again 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Gray!
Si Catriona Gray ang ika-apat na Philippine representative na inuwi ang Miss Universe crown sa bansa, na unang nakuha ni Gloria Diaz na sinundan ni Margie Moran, at after 42 years, nasungkit muli ni Pia Wurtzbach noong 2015.
