CROWNING CATRIONA GRAY tonight is a no-brainer. She’s the ultimate choice to win one of the crowns but as we earlier said, she is for the Miss Universe Philippines 2018 crown — no less.
During the question and answer portion to determine the winners of this year’s Binibining Pilipinas pageant, Catriona was asked of her message to the children of Marawi who are the prime victims of the recently-concluded war, the beauty queen answered:
Be strong. As women, we are the head of the household and we have amazing influence not only in our own families as mothers, sisters, and friends, but also in our community. If we get the women to stay strong and the be image of strength for the children and the people around them, then once the rebuilding is complete, and it’s underway, the morale of the community will stay strong and high.
This is by far the most perfect answer we’ve heard tonight. Earlier tonight, Catriona also won Best in Swimsuit and Best in Long Gown. If the candidates are gauged based on their answers to the questions asked during the final round, Catriona definitely ranked first. Following her would be Samantha Bernardo who answered very well too.
