Let’s be honest. Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach is most likely saying things half-in-jest when she hashtagged the photo above as #clingy to her DIC crown and three sashes. And she should be. Her reign is about to end in just a very little over a week from now. But more than that bittersweet reason (and losing all free flights to overseas destinations as she mentioned herself during an interview at Pico de Loro in Batangas), she has made it extra difficult to find her successor among the 86 ladies vying for her title on January 30. Sure, one of them will definitely take it all the way to the top. But will the 65th winner have what it takes to measure up to her achievements?
To say that Queen P is a tough act to follow would be an understatement. And it will take a lot from the next winner to even step up her game to a level that would approximate all the ideals of the Miss Universe brand she has so beautifully and confidently delivered throughout her reign. It can be done, of course. In time, it will be done.
For now, let us indulge in Queen P’a clinginess. She earned the right to be so.
Have a good Sunday everyone! 🙂
