‘Review: Paused. Jaw: Dropped.’ Rabiya Mateo’s boyfriend shares sweet story during Miss Universe preliminaries

With the entire country having her back, there's a man that has been there for Rabiya Mateo since day one.

Her longtime boyfriend Neil Salvador has been a consistent supporter of the beauty queen—and today's Miss Universe swimsuit and evening gown preliminaries are no exception.

In an Instagram story posted at around 8 a.m. Philippine time, the Quezon City-based medical frontliner shared his enthusiasm in seeing his girlfriend confidently walk the runway thousands of miles away in Florida.


In the next story, Neil shared that he's temporarily dropped his review material to follow the queen donning her signature bright yellow Ema Savahl swimsuit. Who can blame him?

"Review: Paused

Jaw: Dropped

Heart: Pounding

Eyes: [cry emoji]"

This wouldn't be the first time that Neil has aired his love and support for Rabiya, as he consistently posts photos of the 24-year-old and even penned a heartfelt birthday message for her last year.

"I still get so emotional and felt so surreal seeing you achieving all the dreams and harvesting all the blessings you deserve for all the hardworks you've done since you were young," Neil had written.

"Being proud is an understatement to what I feel towards your success."
