Meanwhile, just earlier today, November 5 (Manila time), Teresita Ssen "Winwyn" Marquez was crowned Reina Hispanoamericana 2017.

Winwyn made history as the first Filipina and Asian to win the crown.

The pageant was held in Santa Cruz, Bolivia (November 4, Bolivia time).

Pia, who won the Miss Universe title in 2015, is proud that Philippines managed to bring home the crown in two consecutive days.

She wrote, "Everyday may crown ang Philippines! Congratulations!!"

Meanwhile, Megan, who was crowned Miss World 2013, said that Filipinas winning beauty pageants makes her "heart happy."

She said, "Waking up to the Philippines winning a crown always makes my heart happy. Congratulations ladies!"
