Second Runner-up Miss Venezuela Sthefany Gutierrez gives Catriona a tight hug after the latter's coronation as Miss Universe. 


Nagpakita ng pagsuporta sa bagong hirang na Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray ang mahigpit nitong nakatunggali na si Tamaryn Green ng South Africa.

Si Tamaryn ang hinirang na First Runner-up sa 67th Miss Universe na ginanap sa IMPACT Arena, Bangkok, Thailand, ngayong Lunes, December 17.

Sa panayam ng ABS-CBN News sa South African beauty queen, sinabi niyang lahat ng kandidata ay hangad na maiuwi ang korona, pero nasa Diyos pa rin daw ang huling desisyon.

Saad niya, “And you know that you gave it your all.

"You tried your best, you worked hard.

"Whatever it may be, it’s God’s plan, it’s what’s going to happen.”

Masaya rin daw siya para sa 24-year-old Pinay beauty queen, na naiuwi ang ika-apat na korona ng Pilipinas sa Miss Universe.

Sabi ni Tamaryn, “I’m so happy for Cat. She’s lovely.

"She’s amazing. She wanted it just as bad as all of us wanted it.
