Catriona Gray seems to be a favorite among the many candidates who will be competing at this year’s Miss Universe pageant. From pageant fanatics from different countries to Broadway legend Lea Salonga, everyone thinks that Catriona has got this pageant in the bag.
“I didn’t see her in Binibining Pilipinas, and I’ve not looked at her interviews but from people who have worked with her, they all say that she has a chance kasi nga matalino and magaling sumagot. It’s not just her physical beauty, may utak daw talaga ‘yung bata. So if that’s the case, then you have the chance. Kasi ano naman ‘yung ganda mo, if there’s nothing behind so I’m hoping with Catriona there is something behind her,” shared Lea to members of the press and the media during the launch of her Bahaghari album.
Lea’s last association to the Miss Universe pageant was back in 2011 when she served as a judge. When she was asked if this would be a factor in a candidate’s chances at winning, the stage icon said, “It doesn’t really matter and if you put a Filipino judge, that’s really objective and it really won’t matter, because they’re going to look at everybody.”
The Miss Universe 2018 pageant will be held in Bangkok, Thailand on December 17, 2018.
