I just had a thought earlier — Ariella Arida might actually win the Miss Universe crown tomorrow. Last year, most people thought that Janine Tugonon was robbed by Miss USA Olivia Culpo. Many attributed it to the timing of the Sandy Hook tragedy where they said the US needed something positive to celebrate about. For this year’s Miss Universe, the Philippines is just trying to stand up again after 2013’s strongest typhoon hit the country. Similar to the circumstance last year, the Philippines need something to celebrate about as they try to stand up again.
As always, I’m rooting for Miss Philippines to win the crown. *crossing my fingers*
