It is not Christmas yet, but Filipinos already have plenty of reason to celebrate as early as now. Catriona Gray has officially been crowned Miss Universe 2018, rendering the nation in a pageant high! Memes were created, reaction videos were shared, and of course, you can’t forget about all the netizens who have attempted to recreate her look and iconic lava walk. In fact, a replica of the patriotic ear cuffs which she wore as an accessory to her Mak Tumang evening gown is already being sold online like hot cakes.
With four Miss Universe titleholders from Philippines, we can’t help but wonder who will be next to join this exclusive group of women. Well, you might not have to search far and wide for the answer.
Even before we met her as a one of Kuya’s housemate, Kisses Delavin has already made a name for herself in beauty pageants. Back in 2016, she won the titles of Miss Masbate and Miss Kaogma. In an exclusive interview with Push, she admitted that it was her childhood dream to join a major beauty pageant, “’yung mama ko pa ‘yung pagod na pagod kasi ang dami kong gustong salihan.”
Kisses started off with competitions in their schools. After training more seriously, she eventually reached provincial pageants. Today, we know her as one of the most beautiful actresses in show business. Snagging her first lead role in a teleserye as well as her first role in a Metro Manila Film Festival entry, her acting career is definitely at a steady rise. Yet, Kapamilyas still wonder whether she will ever try to fulfill her pageant dreams.
“I don’t have plans yet. Gusto ko lang na spontaneous lahat,” Kisses admitted. She already knows which one she hopes to join but will only reveal her decision when the time is right, “Siguro kung ano ‘yung kinakatakutan ko ‘yun ‘yung sasalihan ko which is secret pa para walang spoiler,” she stated with a laugh.
In due time, the nation will also be cheering for Kisses as she makes a grab for her own crown. Until then, fans are already in full support of her projects on the small and big screens!
