Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray set the online world abuzz again after she replied to a question of a netizen who was asking about her vital statistics.
On a screengrab comment of netizen [at]abarai_jap he wrote: “mmmmm.. May we know po anong vital stats ni Kat? Ba’t parang hindi klaro parati ang waist nya? Or sadyang she has an elaborate rib cage?”
Consequently, the 24-year-old beauty queen took time to respond to the netizen’s query who seems to be disappointed over her body measurement.
She replied: “What number would be good for you? What number constitutes my worth, or a “perfect” figure? I hope you would see women as individuals whose worth are defined by what they do and who they are, not by numbers on a tape.”
On March 18, Catriona Gray took home the title as Miss Universe Philippines 2018 before a big crowd at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Ever since she joined the competition, she has been a crowd favorite. During the grand coronation night, she bagged various awards such as the Pitoy Moreno Best in National Costume, Jag Jeans, Best In Long Gown, and Best in Swimsuit awards.
But it was really her answer during the Q&A portion that made her stand out among the other beauties. When US ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim asked her, “After the devastating war, Marawi is now on its way to recovery. What is your message to the young women of Marawi?”
Catriona confidently answered:
“My answer and message to the women [of Marawi] is to be strong. As women, we are the head of the household. And, we have amazing influence not only [on] our own families – as mothers, sisters, and friends – but also [on] our community. If we could get the women to stay strong and be that image of strength for the children and the people around them, once the rebuilding is complete, the morale of the community will stay strong and high,” she said.
