Filipinos win the award for ‘wittiest comments’ on Catriona Gray’s Miss Universe photo

We have always been very supportive of our beauty pageant representatives. And when it comes to prestigious competitions like Miss Universe, you could expect every Filipino to scroll through their news feeds for updates on the preparations made for the event, the candidates’ diet and gym routine, and the lucky designers behind their stunning gowns.

With the 67th Miss Universe pageant happening on December 17, 2018, in Bangkok, Thailand, Filipinos, here and abroad, have been expressing their ‘major major’ support for Catriona Gray. Because when you scroll down the comment section of Gray’s Miss Universe photo, you can really feel the love from her kababayans. (countrymen)
