1) Maxine succeeded Queen P so the latter will support the success of the former at great lengths to continue the winning tradition of the Philippines in Miss Universe.
2) Pia is the reigning titleholder, while Maxine is the host delegate. They both represent the Philippines so joining hands to make the 65th Miss Universe successful is incumbent upon the two of them.
3) Pia and Maxine come from the same beauty camp and were trained by the same professionals at Aces & Queens. There will always be an instinctive support coming from each other when it matters most.
But are we looking at a potential back-to-back victory in the 65th Miss Universe? That would be a wonderful Christmas gift for the Philippines if ever. But with us being the host, I don’t see it coming just yet. There needs to be a very convincing reason why Maxine should be the next, in the same vein that Dennise Quiñones won the same title in her own backyard more than fifteen years ago today.
What are your deep thoughts on this subject matter, dear readers?
