It’s no secret that our beloved gay Pinoys, whom we affectionately call "bekis," consider beauty pageants a national sport. And with Miss Universe being the Olympics—or better yet, the Pacquiao fight of beauty pageants—bekis here and abroad gathered to watch the live telecast of the event on December 21, Monday.
Watching the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant, with all its plot twists and dramatic sequences, was like seeing a soap opera unfold before your eyes. Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was mistakenly announced as the winner by pageant host Steve Harvey. But in true teleserye fashion, it was revealed that the underdog, Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was the true reigning queen.
PAK NA PAK NA PAK!
Here, we compiled eight of the best beki reaction vids during the pageant, listed in no particular order. You’ll see them laugh, cry, wail on the floor even, during this truly historic event for the whole world—"the universe rather"—and our beloved beki community.
1. Dasal lang talaga.
2. Winner of Best in Costume with crowns pa!
3. But these guys had really good costumes, too!
4. TAYO TALAGA ANG NAGWAGI!
5. Yakapin ang TV!
6. Ate, 'yung chandelier baka maba—ay 'yan na nga, nabasag na!
7. Kalma lang, gurl.
8. Best in Team Spirit, complete with the Philippine flag!
But we gotta admit, the best reaction video we watched online was this GEM.
P.S. They aren't bekis, we know. But the editing was flawless and the mashup of Taylor Swift's "Trouble" and A Great Big World's "Say Something" was GENIUS!
