Bb. Pilipinas-Grand International 2018 Eva Patalinjug nearly slipped onstage as she stepped on her evening gown during the preliminary competition.
Eva didn't hesitate to share this moment on her Instagram account.
She began her caption with the quote, "Our greatest glory in life is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
The beauty queen continued, "Tonight, my heart is filled with joy knowing that my entire country stood up with me when I fell at the @missgrandinternational stage.
"I hope that I have shown courage, strength, and the essence of rising from every stumble in life. "

This moment was reminiscent of Miriam Quiambao's "famous" fall during the Miss Universe competition in 1999.
And much like how pageant fans lauded Miriam for getting up gracefully, they sent Eva the same kind of response.
One fan tweeted, "Good job Queen Eva, even though malapit ka nang matumba during evening gown round pero bumawi ka naman sa last pose mo!"
Another netizen added, "Eva Patalinjug slipped on stage during the Preliminary competition of Miss Grand International 2018 a while ago. But her recovery is DIVINE! she’s just very queenly and regal."
Despite the small mishap, Pinoy pageant fans were in unison in saying that she did pretty well at the evening gown round.
Miss Grand International 2018 coronation night will be on October 25 in Myanmar.
