Riza Santos was almost there. She was so close to the crown that she can smell it. But in the end, she had to settle for First Runner-Up to eventual winner Dennise Garrido as Miss Universe Canada 2013. Bummer, right?
Had she won, two full-blooded Filipinas (together with Ara Arida) would’ve been in the roster of candidates of Miss Universe 2013, just like in 1996 (with Aileen Damiles and Renette Cruz). But the title just wasn’t in her fate to happen.
Life moves on for Riza. Not unless…oh I don’t even want to imagine of so many other possible scenarios. Sahar Biniaz will raise an eyebrow if ever.
Anyways, congratulations as well for placing 2nd in Canada’s national competition for MU. 😉
