In a new vlog episode, Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters takes you behind the scenes of Catriona Gray’s “Raise Your Flag” homecoming show last month. Rachel shows viewers everything from the dress fittings to rehearsals to pre-show makeup and hair. Her secret before going onstage? A toast with a little bit of wine with the backstage crew.
Rachel got to bring her camera onstage during rehearsals and the actual show, hamming it up with Catriona, Pia Wurtzbach (Miss Universe 2015), Venus Raj (Miss Universe 2010 4th runner-up), Shamcey Supsup (Miss Universe 2011 3rd runner-up), Arielle Arida (Miss Universe 2013 3rd runner-up), Mary Jean Lastimosa (Miss Universe 2014 top 10 finalist), and Maxine Medina (Miss Universe 2016 top 6 finalist).
She also called Maymay Entrata the “MMK Cat,” possibly referring to rumors that Maymay will be playing Catriona in an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya. However, Maymay only shook her head and did the Korean heart sign in response to what Rachel said.
Rachel, a Miss Universe 2017 top 10 finalist, says, “It was such an honor to share the stage with Catriona and of course, the other Binibinis from 2010 to 2018. It was just a beautiful day.”
