Georgina Wilson, meanwhile, shared clips of Gray’s performance on her Instagram Stories and she, too, only had commendations for the Miss Universe 2018 bet.
“Omg living for this @catriona_gray,” said Wilson in regard to Gray’s slo-mo turn.

Apart from Curtis and Wilson, Miss Universe Canada 2016 Siera Bearchell also hailed Gray in her latest YouTube video posted on Dec. 13 in which she gave her review of the Miss Universe preliminary competition.
In her video, Bearchell named Gray as her #1 bet in the swimsuit competition.
“If you couldn’t tell from what I was saying, Philippines,” she said. “I mean I felt it’s almost hard to argue with that one, the performance was amazing. Her performance was just 10 out of 10, 100 percent.”
As for Gray’s gown, Bearchell shared that she was not super-thrilled about it, but really liked the concept, idea and inspiration behind it.
“I think they designed it around the Mikimoto crown… that’s my favorite crown,” she said. “I liked the gown and styling better when she won Miss Universe Philippines, so I’m definitely hoping she brings something else to the final night.”
She added, “Her performance is always amazing. The crowd loves her, her turn at the end of the runway and stuff, like it’s easy and she’s great.”
