Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo praised the performance of actress Kisses Delavin, who made it to the top 10 of Miss Universe Philippines 2021 finals in Bohol last Thursday night.
On Twitter, Pia reacted to the performance of the crowd-favorite during the evening gown round.
According to the German-Filipino beauty queen, Kisses, who rose to fame as “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate in 2016, just totally transformed.
“Kisses blossomed into a woman right before our eyes. She nailed that styling! #MUPH2021Coronation,” Pia wrote.
Fans couldn’t agree more, relating how Kisses did well despite the fact that it was her first national pageant.
Many believe that the young celebrity made it to the Top 10 because she represented herself with confidence.
During the tasks on the first part of the competition, Kisses topped the Headshot and Video Introduction Challenges.
During coronation night, Kisses reaped three special awards: Miss Luxxe White Face of the Universe, Miss RFOX Philippines, and Miss Universe Philippines Lazada.
Rabiya also sent Kisses some words of encouragement.
“Remember that you did well tonight. Continue to be kind and I’m looking forward to see you join again. Ate Rab loves you!”
