Two of Catriona Gray’s fellow candidates during the Miss World 2016 pageant finally expressed their sides about the result of the recently-concluded Miss Universe 2018.
KAMI learned that it was Miss Denmark Helena Heuser and Miss Sweden Emma Strandberg who aired their opinions regarding the victory of their former opponent.
The two beauty queens also joined in the Miss Universe 2018 and they established a “BFF” or “bestfriends forever” relationship with the Philippines’ bet.
This became the reason why they could not contain their happiness upon hearing the name of Catriona as the winner in the prestigious contest.
As her congratulatory message, Miss Sweden initially wrote that she is very proud of what her Miss World sister has achieved.
She also emphasized that the Pinay beauty queen deserved the crown and that she will continuously support her in her journey of being a Miss Universe.
"I am speechless sister, and I can’t stop crying… I am so proud and glad that you are standing there with the new title... We could never ask for a better woman to stand there. Your personality, kindness and love for this world,” Emma quipped.
"You deserved this crown more than anyone else in this universe and I know that you are going to do a wonderful job! I can’t wait to follow your journey and I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart,” she added.
Meanwhile, in a long Instagram post, Miss Denmark did not forget to show her gratitude to Catriona for being her good friend since their Miss World days.
She even called the Bicolana model as the “best Miss Universe ever” and that she is truly destined to wear the crown and embrace the title.
"To (Catriona Gray)… Thank you for being my friend. I look up to you in so many ways. You have such a star potential, but yet you’re incredibly humble and down to earth,” Helena expressed.
"You.. my Kit Cat, was destined for that crown! The Miss Universe Organization just crowned the best Miss Universe ever today! You deserve the absolute best in life, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings you! Meeeeoowww,” she added.
In a video uploaded on Youtube, the two ladies spoke up again about how they feel now that Catriona – their “sister” – is already given the title.
They emotionally reiterated that they are happy and proud of the new Miss Universe and they are hoping to see her in New York City where she will be based.
