- Rachel Peters didn’t get the spot as Top 5 finalists in Miss Universe.
- Pia Wurtzbach is one of the judges in Miss Universe.
- Netizens blame Pia as the factor of Rachel’s loss.
South Africa’s bet Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is the Miss Universe 2017. Miss Universe coronation night was at the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. It was last Sunday, November 26 (Monday, November 27 Manila time). Unfortunately, Rachel Peters didn’t reach the Top 5 finalists in Miss Universe.
Netizens, then, blame Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015, for Rachel’s loss. They also believe that Pia had given Rachel a low score while she was judging. They also believe that the reason behind the low score is to remain the latest Miss Universe from the Philippines.
Netizens also called her insecure and jealous. They invited people to watch the next episode of MMK, but only to see the parts where Pia was also clearly jealous of Bea Alonzo’s career. Then netizens also made it clear that Pia shouldn’t judge or be any part of the next Miss Universe. According to them, she will surely sabotage the next candidate to stay relevant.
Although, Pia doesn’t have a comment nor reaction about this issue. When Pia denies or confirms this issue, then, we can make assumptions.
“Expected na ilalaglag ni Pia Wurtzbach si Rachel Peters. Aba syempre, kung mananalo si Rachel, wala na kay @PiaWurtzbach ang spotlight. Ayaw pakabog ni ate girl. I know that getting her as a judge will bring no good for the
#Philippines. Inggitera talaga! #MissUniverse”
“From the start, Pia Wurtzbach is under Aces and Queens, si Rachel Peters is under the opposite camp, which is Kagandahang Flores. Dito pa lang, alam mong magkasalungat na. Insecure si Pia. Alam niyang Rachel is very intelligent. Kaya nilaglag na.
“Panoorin niyo ang MMK kung paano kainsecure si Pia Wurtzbach sa success ni Bea Alonzo, instead na maging masaya sa kasabayan niya. The same with Rachel, nilaglag niya dahil wala nang papansin sa kanya kung may bagong
#MissUniverse ang #Philippines. Hayok lang sa spotlight.”
Another tweet from the same netizen also gives attention to the same issue:
“Hoy @PiaWurtzbach for sure sobrang saya mo na dahil hindi nanalo si Rachel Peters noh? Porket hindi taga Aces and Queens, noh? Alam na this. Ayaw mo lang talagang masapawan at sobrang hayok mo sa atensyon. Be fair naman sana. Karma is bitcher than you.
Ethel Booba, comedian and host tweeted:
“Isa pa tong isa, sa akin G na G kasi si Rachel daw pro-EJK. Buti na lang pro-LMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ kung hindi baka pumutok na panubugan nya kapag nagkataon sa galit. Charot!”
This tweet received replies from three netizens who believe that Pia had sabotaged Rachel’s journey to the crown.
“bakla @IamEthylGabison nilaglag sya cguro ni @PiaWurtzbach kasi baka ma steal sa kanya ang popularity and to think na magkaibang training camp sila..nako ewan ko nalang ha”
“Yan din iniisip ko baka nilaglag talaga siya! Na-imbyerna ako! Kahit man lang sa top 5 dapat nakapasok siya.”
“Nilaglag pra hindi mawala kasikatan nya. Period.
“Very true! Nakakaimbyerna siya!
“Yes talaga! Ayaw masapawan ang kasikatan kaya nilaglag. Hindi kna miss universe kaya wag k umasta n ikaw p rin ang atensyon ng lahat”
Not all netizens also think that Pia was the reason for Rachel’s loss, they are surrounded by people who think so. A netizen tweeted a Facebook comment about Pia sabotaging Rachel’s journey to the crown.
“Di ako informed kasalanan pala ni Pia na natalo si Rachel hahaha ang wa-wild ng imagination”
Whether Pia sabotaged Rachel or not, it is a huge accusation for netizens to make. What do you think?
