Manila, Philippines – After 42 years where Miss Margie Moran took the crown, the Philippines finally made it to the Miss Universe title again.
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach
Miss Philippines and PLDT HOME DSL ambassador Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was recently crowned Miss Universe 2015 after a dramatic coronation night held at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
Wurtzbach ousted 80 women from various parts of the globe to claim the country’s third Miss Universe title. She follows in the footsteps of Gloria Diaz who won in 1969 and Margie Moran who brought home the crown in 1973.
“We could not be any more proud of our very own PLDT HOME DSL ambassadress as she embarks on this new journey as Ms. Universe 2015.” PLDT VP and HOME Marketing Director Gary Dujali said. “Pia has been with us throughout the year as we aggressively went around the country bringing the family-sized broadband connection of HOME DSL to more Filipino homes nationwide.”
The final question to the top three Miss Universe 2015 Pageant by Steve Harvey:
Why should you be the next Miss Universe?
The winning answer by Pia Wurtzbach:
“To be a Miss Universe is both an honor and responsibility. If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country which is the Philippines. I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart. Thank you.”
Host Steve Harvey initially made a mistake by announcing Miss Colombia first during the final stage but courageously straightened it and re-announced that it is Miss Philippines who won the crown.
PLDT HOME DSL is the country’s number one broadband with over one million subscribers. For more information, log on to www.pldthome.com
