Mateo was one of the 74 contestants who vied for the Miss Universe crown on May 17, 2021. She made it to the pageant’s top 21, but failed to enter its top 10. Andrea Meza of Mexico was crowned Miss Universe for that edition.

Meanwhile, Mateo recently starred as Agent Asha Raj in the GMA series “Agimat ng Agila.” She appeared in the now-concluded show alongside co-stars Bong Revilla, Sanya Lopez and Gardo Versoza, among others. JB
