Rabiya Mateo has officially started her reign as Miss Universe Philippines 2020.
Today, October 29, 2020, is the first official day at work of Rabiya and her court—1st runner-up Bella Ysmael, 2nd runner-up Michele Gumabao, 3rd runner-up Pauline Amelinckx, and 4th runner-up Billie Hakenson.
Rabiya started her day by getting her brand new car, which was delivered to her new apartment in Metro Manila. Both are part of her prizes for winning the highly-coveted title.
The blue 2019 MG ZS Alpha is a crossover SUV priced at PHP818,888 to PHP998,888.
Rabiya was very excited upon seeing her brand-new car. Her glam team—stylist Keith Angelo and hairstylist Jonas Lucas—shared photos of her reaction on their respective social media accounts.
As the reigning Miss Universe Philippines titleholder, the beauty queen also gets her own chauffeur.
After receiving her new car, Rabiya went on to fulfill her first duty as Miss Universe Philippines 2020. Rabiya and her court joined Frontrow's Raymond Francisco at the opening of the Frontrow Cares' E-skewela Hub in Barangay 530 in Sampaloc, Manila.
Aside from the apartment and the brand-new car, Rabiya also gets to wear the PHP5 million crown designed by Villarica Pawnshop.
Her cash prize, according to the Miss Universe Philippines Organization, is "the biggest cash prize in the history of Philippine pageantry."
