The 25-year-old is no stranger to the pageant scene. Prior to joining the prestigious MUP, she also took part in Miss Global Philippines 2015, Miss Earth Philippines 2016, and Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018.
She may not have won the title in any of these tilts, but she easily won the hearts of netizens for her wit, confidence, and funny antics.
Instead of “spilling the tea,” Miss Manila chose to focus on having a good time! Many said they would love to have her as their “tagay” buddy at a party.

Meanwhile Ms. Manila?

In her preliminary interview, she asked the judges to pause the time so she can answer their questions properly. “Easy ka lang sa pag-time. Nagugulat ako eh. May galit ka yata, sir!" she jokingly told one of them.
Miss Manila lang Malakas!!!!! Uwian na may nanalo na sa pagpapakatotoo hahaha jk #MissUniversePhilippines2020 pic.twitter.com/jQhkz3Zyec— Phaul (@JohnPhaulMT) October 23, 2020
Instead of saying “Miss Universe Philippines 2020” in a video featuring all the MUP contenders, she said “Miss Universe Etneb Etneb (bente bente)” as she flashed some peace signs and worked her charm.
