Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach sees New York (NYC) latest update for the first time, Is ‘Excited for All That’s Ahead’. Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is forging ahead after all that pageant drama.
Wurtzbach tweeted a cute selfie on a plane, revealing that she’s left Las Vegas where the pageant was held, and is now in New York City. The trip marks the 26-year-old Miss Philippines’ first time there.
“Goodbye Vegas, hello New York City!” she wrote. “This is my first time seeing The Big Apple. #MissUniverse – Pia”.
Wurtbach is about to become very familiar with the big city. Part of the Miss Universe 2015 prize package includes luxury accommodations in a New York City apartment for the duration of her reign, including living expenses.
“I’m so excited for all that’s ahead!” Miss Philippines tweeted on Tuesday, alongside a picture of her gazing at a Las Vegas view.
Pia first thanked her supporters, as she recalled her 3 tries at Binibining Pilipinas before she finally won the crown.
“Words can’t describe how grateful I am for this. It was quite a journey getting here with 3 attempts at winning Miss Philippines. Now, I finally got the best Christmas gift ever – and not just for me, for my country. I’d like to say thank you to everyone who believed in my potential and those who supported me from the beginning.
To everyone who voted for me, especially to my fellow countrymen, thank you. Maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat (Thank you all very much).”
Pia then talked about Miss Universe Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, who won first runner-up. On the coronation night, host Steve Harvey misread the card and announced that Ariadna had won before apologizing and correcting himself.
