Beauty queen Pia Wurtzbach wowed Filipinos – and people all over the world – when she won the prestigious Miss Universe crown in 2015.
Many people admire Pia Wurtzbach. In fact, Miss Universe Organization President Paula Shugart said that Pia may be a hard one to follow. In a report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Shugart was quoted by “King of Talk” Boy Abunda as saying, “Pia is a hard act to follow because she defined this. She made it her own, and I’m definitely going to miss her. I will be crying.”
Pia Wurtzbach became emotional upon hearing Shugart’s words through Tito Boy. She said, “I’ll be crying too.”
Then, the beauty queen’s eyes welled up with tears. She exclaimed,“Oh my gosh, I told myself I wasn’t going to cry!”
“I didn’t want to copy any former Miss Universe title holder. I just want to be myself. I want to be remembered as a different kind of beauty queen, na hindi very rehearsed and robotic. I just want to be myself. And to hear that … it’s really the best thing.”
“I”m going to miss them, too. And I’m so happy and grateful, that they took care of me.”
In a recent report by ABS-CBN Entertainment, it was revealed that Pia Wurtzbach was able to save her earnings as the 2015 Miss Universe titleholder. Her financial foresight will no doubt serve her well in the future.
When Pia Wurtzbach won the Miss Universe crown, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that she received a year-long income from the Miss Universe Organization.
Unfortunately, the exact amount was not disclosed. It was presumed that it covered all of the duties and obligations that a Miss Universe titleholder would uphold once she wins the crown.
In an interview, Pia Wurtzbach said:
“Iniipon ko ‘yung suweldo ko nun eh, so hindi naman ako masyadong magastos din. During Miss Universe, wala. Wala akong time mamili ng kahit ano, so wala rin akong time mag-isip kung ano ‘yung mga gusto kong bilhin noong mga time na ‘yon.”
