“You were born to do this,” she added. “Go get that crown.”

Moments after, Wurtzbach reiterated her support for the 23-year-old Miss Universe hopeful.

“Weather forecast: Cloudy with a chance of a back to back win at Miss Universe,” she declared in a separate post.

Meanwhile, Ganados stunned during the pageant’s national costume contest yesterday, Dec. 7, where she donned a silver gown inspired by the Philippine Eagle “whose strength, power, and love for freedom [exemplify] the Filipino people.”
