Catriona Gray Wins Miss Universe 2018!

Our very own Miss Philippines candidate Catriona Gray was crowned as the Miss Universe 2018 in the final competition held in Bangkok, Thailand, Monday morning of December 17, 2018.

Catriona is now the 4TH Pinay title holder to win the Miss Universe crown following Ms. Gloria Diaz, Ms. Margie Moran, and Ms. Pia Wurtzbach.

This 24-year-old Filipino-Australia turned viral during the on-going competition when she ramped up stage with her signature slow-motion twirl in a hot pink bikini. Her so-called "Catriona Gray Slow Motion Walk" or the "Lava Walk" trended instantly in the world-wide web with different celebrities doing their own challenge video immitating Catriona's.

Meanwhile, Gray's final question is:

"What is the most important lesson you've learned in your life and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?"

And her answer:

"I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila and the life there is... it's poor and very sad. And I've always taught myself to look for the beauty of it, to look for beauty in the faces of the children and to be grateful. And I would bring this aspect as a Miss Universe, to see situations with a silver lining, and to assess where I could give something, where I could provide something as a spokesperson. If I could teach also people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negativity could not grow and foster, and children would have a smile on their faces. Thank you."

Two years ago, Gray had a heartbreaking loss in Miss World competition. But just like Pia Wurtzbach, she didn't lose hope. She tried again in other competition until she finally got the crown of the Miss Universe pageant, the most prestige beauty competition in the world, the universe rather!

Congratulations Catriona Gray! You really deserve it! Another Filipino pride! 12/17/2018 (TV Series Craze)
