It's no secret that Pia Wurtzbach joined Binibining Pilpinas three times before finally becoming the country's representative at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant (and eventually taking the crown home). We weren't surprised though! Her determination and perseverance are the makings of a winner. Below, moments that prove Pia deserves to be crowned Miss Universe 2015!
1. For starters, she's simply gorgeous!
2. And she can work it in a swimsuit even when it's freezing in Las Vegas.
3. Remember that time when Pia asked for support from a strong social networking community? Just take a look at her cute pabebe wave!
4. Pia clearly got along with other contestants.
Just hanging out with Miss Japan.
And posting a shout-out for Miss Dominican Republic.
According to her caption, after communicationg only thru WhatsApp, Pia was delighted to finally meet Miss Indonesia in person.
She also had selfie time with her room neighbors, Miss Thailand and Miss Vietnam.
Looks like China and Philippines can actually get along.
Oh, look at that snap with Miss USA!
5. Could the fortune cookie's message be a clue to Pia's future victory?
6. When she slayed the Q&A portion. When asked by the judges why she deserves to be the Miss Universe 2015, her response was impressive!
7. Last, but not the least, the way she handled herself during the winner announcement mishap.
