The pre-pageant activities for the 69th Miss Universe have begun. And as expected, Rabiya Mateo is giving it her all—even when the unexpected strikes.
Rabiya accidentally fell in the swimming pool while doing a photoshoot at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida for Shop the Look, one of the Miss Universe pageant’s sponsors. But the 24-year-old beauty queen still managed to maintain her poise and grace despite the accident.
“Lesson from this photo: When life puts you in a bad situation, just make a joke out of it,” she said in an Instagram post that shows her reaction moments after she fell in the pool.
Accident or no accident, Rabiya, wearing a pink outfit, still rocked her Shop the Look photoshoot. Check out her stunning photos here:
