Meza’s crowning moment is shown in the official Miss Universe Twitter page, where it can be seen that the last two candidates had to stand a few feet apart, symbolic of the social distancing observed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Philippines’ candidate Rabiya Mateo made it to the pageant’s top 21 but failed to enter the top 10.

Mateo, who is from Balasan, Iloilo, is one of the 74 candidates who entered the Miss Universe pageant this year, held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. JB
