Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach recalled on Tuesday (May 10, 2016) that it was Rep. Leni Robredo of Camarines Sur who asked her the final question-and-answer during the 52nd Bb. Pilipinas beauty pageant held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City last March 15, 2015.
“Wow. Naalala ko lang it was Ms. Leni Robredo who asked me my final question in Bb Pilipinas 2015. Yung ‘Think before you click,‘” said Wurtzbach in her tweet.

Robredo, now the leading candidate for vice president, asked Wurtzbach her thoughts on Internet censorship during the grand coronation of the prestigious pageant.
“I think that we should be careful with what we post online, especially our thoughts and our opinions that we don’t hurt anybody. We have to be careful with what we post, especially with our bodies and our faces. So always think before you click,” Wurtzbach answered.
The Filipino-German beauty queen eventually became the country’s representative at the 2015 Miss Universe beauty pageant in December.
Nine months later, Wurtzbach was crowned 2015 Miss Universe, the country’s third winner from the Philippines, during a contest in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Asked if Wurtzbach voted for Robredo, the beauty queen did not answer.
Netizens also described the two Filipino women as “queens”.
It took three attempts — 2013, 2014 and 2015 — before Wurtzbach won the Bb. Pilipinas beauty contest.
Robredo is now ahead of rival Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. in a tight race for vice president.
Wurtzbach has earlier prayed for clean and honest 2016 Philippine elections.
“Pray that we elect the right people and that the election process is fair, peaceful and efficient. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas,” said the beauty queen, who is now based in New York during her reign.
