The Philippines must be one of the biggest fan bases of Miss Universe, and any beauty pageant. Time literally stops when it is Miss Universe. Just as much as when Manny Pacquiao has a boxing fight. Traffic and crime are solved for those few hours when everyone is glued to their livestreaming gadget.
As much as I do not agree with having a man (“Miss” Spain) join Miss Universe – just as they now have men competing in women’s sports events and winning them – we still watched it to support the nation.
And wow, when Catriona Gray won, the missionaries watching went wild! I can watch this video all day:
Congratulations Philippines! We are back in the Universal stage for the fourth time!
Now Miss U, don’t let the Spain mistake be a trend. You will lose all your viewers and end up being a glorified Miss Gay competition. Look what happened to the Boy Scouts.
