The much-awaited Miss Universe competition has finally concluded! The Philippines’ Rachel Peters failed to reach the Miss Universe Top 5, ending her quest for the country’s fourth crown in one of the world’s largest pageants.
The Top 5 are the candidates from South Africa, Venezuela, Thailand, Jamaica, and Colombia.
So most Filipinos were hopeful that Rachel Peters would achieve the same feat or even bag the country’s fourth Miss Universe crown.
The massive support from her countrymen made Rachel an early crowd favorite during the preliminary competition, but the Bicolana beauty only made it to the Top Ten on pageant night!
Despite the results, Rachel received encouraging tweets from fellow Pinoys:
Congratulations RACHEL PETERS! You did amazing in representing our country!!! Palakpakan!!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 now who’s your bet???? Tweet me. #MissUniverse
