When it comes to beauty pageants, we Filipinos are one of the toughest and most supportive fans in the world…the universe, rather. And to be fair with our representatives, they always seem to have signature walks and lines during the Miss Universe competition. There was Venus Raj’s “major major,” Shamcey Supsup’s “Tsunami Walk,” and Pia Wurtzbach’s iconic “Confidently beautiful with a heart.”

This time, Catriona Gray is putting a spin into her walk with a “slow-mo twirl.”

Catriona represented the country during the Miss Universe 2018 preliminary competition and she SLAYED the runway in a long gown and in a swimsuit. People can’t handle how she’s confidently killing it and Pinoys are definitely rooting for her to take home the crown this year.

Her twirl is so damn good that some people are “petitioning” to make it a UNESCO Heritage Site.

Honestly, that twirl by Catriona Gray can feed millions of hungry Filipinos already so I just keep replaying it. Where can I sign the petition to officially make the Catriona twirl a UNESCO Heritage Site?#MissPhilippines #MissUniverse2018

Who needs a video editor when you can do a live slo-mo!

Catriona Gray doesn't need a video editor, she can slo-mo and speed up her motion by herself. We stan a living Adobe Premiere Pro. #MissUniverse2018 #CatrionaElisaMagnayonGray #Philippines#MUning

Some thought it was just a buffer because we all have ~stable~ internet connections here in PH.

We might as well give her an acting award, too, as her facial expression changes from “I’m just gonna act all cute here” to “I’m actually here to steal the crown”β€”IN A SNAP! Get you a girl who can do both, indeed!

Okay, Catriona Gray can change her facial expression from a fierce, fiery goddess to a sweet damsel in a snap of a finger.

She should also receive the Best Actress Award, next to the #MissUniverse2018 crown. πŸ‘‘

We’re pretty sure that win or lose, Catriona is definitely bagging hair product endorsements because of her “parang-may-electric-fan-sa-buhok twirl.”

And because we’re Pinoys, we’re definitely making memes out of this iconic slow-mo twirl.

Catriona made us realize that life is truly unfair for most of us and when God poured beauty, elegance, and talent in the universe, she was one of those ahead in line.

She may not have won the Miss World title last 2o16 but maybe it’s because she’s meant for Miss Universe this year.

Catriona Gray didn't win the World for a reason. And that's because she's meant for the Universe. #MissUniverse #Philippines
