While Wurtzbach won the Miss Universe crown back in 2015, she said, “I have to admit, once in a while, it’s nice to go back into pageant mode again.”

The Filipino beauty queen served as one of the judges for the pageant, she said in a separate post. During her trip to the country, she also carried out her duties as the goodwill ambassador of UNAIDS Asia and the Pacific, speaking about HIV testing in various medical centers.

Tunzi won the Miss Universe 2019 crown last December in Atlanta, United States. JB
