Miss Philippines Rachel Peters said that it is an honor to represent the Philippines in the Miss Universe 2017 pageant.
“Thank you for a truly amazing experience. I’ve learnt so much about myself these last few days and have made many wonderful friends that no matter what happens tomorrow, I already feel like a winner!” said Peters on Instagram
“Philippines, it’s been such an honor to wear THE sash and to represent you. You’ve all been incredible (it blows my mind) and you’ve all done you’re part.. now it’s time for me to do mine! MAHAL KO PO KAYONG LAHAT,” she said.
The family of Peters and some of her friends have already arrived in Las Vegas to cheer for the Filipina candidate.
Candidates from South Africa, Thailand, Colombia and the Philippines continued to dominate betting sites in London, US, Ireland and Australia as the favorites to win the crown.
For betting sites Centrebet, Pinnacle, Wiliam Hill, Nicer Odds, Paddypower.sport, and Sportbet.com.au, Miss Thailand Maria Poonlertlarp is the lady to beat in the 2017 Miss Universe pageant.
She is followed by Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters at No. 2; and Miss Colombia Laura Gonzalez, No. 3.
Peters is ranked in fourth, fifth or sixth places in various betting portals.
Results of betting sites have never influenced the decision of the Miss Universe pageant, although in 2015, Pia Wurtzbach figured prominently in the Top 3 among betting sites around the world.
Wurtzbach eventually won the title for the Philippines after 42 years.
In January 2017, reigning Miss Universe Iris Mittenaire of France did not figure it in the Top 10 candidates of betting sites but she ended up winning the crown.
Bettors then placed their money on Andrea Tovar of Colombia who won 2nd runner-up in the 66th edition of the pageant held in Manila last January.
If Peters wins the pageant, she will be the fourth Miss Universe from the Philippines. Other winners were Gloria Diaz (1969), Margie Moran (1973) and Wurtzbach (2015).
And if Peters will enter the Top 16, this will mark the seventh consecutive year that the Philippines will join the semifinals of the prestigious contest.
Miss Universe 2018 in PH?
Unconfirmed reports said that the Miss Universe 2018 beauty pageant will come to Manila for the fourth time next year.
In an early interview, however, former Ilocos Sur governor Chavit Singson said that he does not favor the staging of the pageant here this time because of peace and order situation not just in the Philippines but around the world.
“The security situation around the world is vulnerable. So siguro hindi na muna,” said Singson, who was the lead partner of the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) in the Philippines in January.
In June, the MUO offered the Philippines to host the beauty pageant once again this year but the government declined.
“No Miss Universe this year. Baka next year,” said Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo at the International Conference on Sustainable Tourism for Development.
