Congratulations “Miss Universe 2016” Iris Mittenaere from France, you deserve it!
It’s the Philippines third time to host Ms. Universe. The last was in 1994 where Sushmita Sen won the Miss Universe pageant. Our country’s pride Charlene Gonzales made it to the top 6 just as Maxine Medina in the recent 2016 Ms. Universe coronation did. Is it a jinx or not? You decide. What’s important is we were able to once again showcased our country’s beauty to the whole world by hosting the pageant in our own beautiful land of the rising sun! This is something that we should be proud of.
