Miss Universe Philippines 2018 candidate Catriona Gray is looking forward to compete in the upcoming Miss Universe beauty pageant against Miss Spain.

Catriona is supportive of Ms. Spain’s win, saying that “she earned the right to represent her country.”

To her, everything is just fair competition, recalling that Angela Ponce, Ms. Spain, did all that she can do to be in the competition.

She added that with Miss Spain joining her in the competition, it would become “a platform for the transgender community.”

When asked about her preparations for the next defining event of her career, she revealed that she has been continuously preparing.

“I’m a perfectionist,” she said about herself.

She started her pageant life when she was a kid. Her fans have even posted pictures of her back in 1999 for her entry in Eat Bulaga’s “Little Miss Philippines.”

Gray also expressed her delight about the venue of Miss Universe 2018 being in Thailand, saying that she loves the country.

The Miss Universe pageant is set to be held in Bangkok, Thailand on December 16, 2018.

Catriona Gray won Binibining Pilipinas 2018 last March.
