With so many beauties from all over the world gathered at Israel for the recently held Miss Universe 2021 coronation night, how does one stand out? Take a cue from Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa who apparently got mistaken for a *current* pageant candidate!
She recalled the hilarious incident during her Kumu Live, saying, "Lalabas na ako at pupunta na ako sa coaster ni Ms. Olivia Quido, hinabol ako ng adviser. The adviser said, 'Where are you going? Where are you going? Where's your sash?' Nagulat ako, akala niya candidate ako."
MJ also tweeted, "Kaloka yung advisor in-award ako, Bakit daw 'di ko suot ang sash ko. Hahahahaha award!"
The pageant advisor is not the only one who took note of MJ's presence in Israel. In another tweet, MJ shared that locals were also interested in knowing who she is.
"In fairness, sa mga nagtatanong na locals dito kung taga saan ako at 'pag sinasabi ko na Philippines, nagugulat sila. 'Wow, Filipina! Are they all beautiful like you?' I say, 'And a lot more!"
MJ, along with the Philippine entourage to the pageant, made the trip to Israel to support this year's Philippine bet Beatrice Luigi Gomez.
Bea made it to the top five of the 70th Miss Universe pageant.
