2. She's close to her family.

Rachel, who represents Camarines Sur, is of Filipino and British descent. Her dad Nigel and mom Annie never expected her to be a beauty queen.

In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News correspondent Dyan Castillejo, Annie disclosed that Rachel "never actually showed any interest in joining beauty pageants when she was growing up." For his part, Nigel revealed that he "never thought for a moment that [Rachel] could actually win it because it’s just too presumptuous." He added, "Of course, she is gorgeous. For me, she is the most gorgeous girl in the world. I did not expect her to win but, of course, we hoped. She actually did it."
