Of course, a beauty pageant is not complete without memes.
Pageant season is in full swing as Harnaaz Sandhu of India was recently crowned at the 70th Miss Universe. Even if the Philippines’ Beatrice Gomez didn’t bring home the coveted crown, the internet enjoyed the pageant by creating hilarious edited photos and reaction posts.
Here are some of the funniest Miss Universe reactions and memes we found all over the internet.
Filipino netizens took to social media to express their support for Kapuso actress Marian Rivera who’s one of the judges of the pageant.

Pageant fans couldn’t help but notice Gomez’s tight hug to Colombia’s Valeria Ayos after both finishing at the Top 5—a nod to Pia Wurtzbach and Ariadna Gutierrez’s tandem back in 2015.

Pinoy netizens also posted photos of actresses Bea Alonzo and Bea Binene, who share the same name with Gomez.
While Pinoy pageant fans praised Gomez’s answer about mandatory universal vaccine passports in the Q&A portion, Twitter user @aaronadlawan joked about the country’s face shield policy.
