The Philippines is a country that takes pride in its roster of beauty queens. International beauty pageants are a sport in their own right in this country and are highly anticipated events regarded with the utmost passion from Filipino fans, cheering and supporting each Ms. Universe-Philippines candidate both online and offline.
The Ms. Philippines sash is not a stranger to the spotlight. Amidst the win of 2016 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach was a full blown controversy after her title was mistakenly awarded to Ms. Colombia. This became a trending topic all over the world, dominated by Filipino netizens who showed their support to the newly crowned Ms. Universe Royalty.
All eyes, therefore, are now on reigning Ms. Universe-Philippines Maxine Medina as she attempts a two-peat win for the Philippines to bring the coveted crown home. Even weeks before the pageant, Filipinos are already showing their support online by using the hashtag, #4M4MU.
“We all know that the Philippines is not just a beauty queen-devoted country, it’s also a social media-obsessed country. We, as a nation, have always showed our support to our fellow Filipinos during momentous events through social media. And the Ms. Universe pageant is no different–which is why freenet is glad to enable Filipinos all around the country to participate in this much-anticipated event as we once again play host to the Ms. Universe pageant here in our shores,” said Heidi Garayblas, Business Unit Head at freenet, the free Internet platform of Voyager Innovations.
