Our PH bet Rachel Peters landed only on the Top 10
Philippine bet Rachel Peters ended her Miss Universe journey on Monday (November 27, PH time) as she failed to make it to the Top 5 of the international beauty contest.
The five finalists in the pageant came from Thailand, Jamaica, Colombia, Venezuela, and South Africa. Meanwhile, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa won the Miss Universe 2017 title while Miss Colombia got the first runner-up, and Miss Jamaica on the second runner-up.
Nonetheless, de Leon remains appreciative of everyone who joined her in this journey.
“I did my best but I guess my best wasn’t good enough. Thank you fellow countrymen. I love #Philippines!,” she tweeted after the pageant.
Peters will certainly treasure her Miss Universe experience even though she failed to win the crown for the Philippines.
