Sa pag-guest ng ilan sa mga nagwagi sa katatapos na Miss Universe Philippines sa "Tutok to Win," inilahad ni Rabiya Mateo kung bakit sa tingin niya ay siya ang kinoronahan para sa titulo. Ang kaniyang mga kapwa beauty queen, inihayag naman ang pagsuporta sa kaniya.
"Hindi Kuya Wil [ako] makapaniwala. Because gusto kong manalo pero ang dami rin kasing malalakas, ang dami ding pursigido," sabi ni Rabiya kay Kuya Willie Revillame nang tanungin kung ano ang naramdaman niya nang malaman niyang siya na nagwagi sa korona.
"But during that night, the stars were aligned for me," pagpapatuloy ni Rabiya.
Sinuportahan naman ng mga kapwa niya beauty queen ang kaniyang naging sagot.
"I think tama 'yung sinabi ni Rabiya na the stars aligned for her 'cause all of us had difficult questions. All of us gave really strong answers, all of us were on point and beautiful that night. But she was just glowing and the judges really liked her so it was her night, it was her destiny," sabi naman ni 4th runner up Billie Hakenson ng Cavite.
"It's destiny... It's really not a necessity for you to speak English fluently. It's not how you say it, it's about what exactly you are saying, the message we're trying to share to the people and how you manage to somehow touch their minds and touch their hearts. And I think Rabiya was able to do that," ayon naman kay 3rd runner up Pauline Pauline Amelinckx ng Bohol.
Inihayag din nila ang katangian na dapat taglay ng mga kandidata.
"It's also your personality. Kailangan mo talagang ipakita kung sino ka. So if that means you speak English, you speak Tagalog, you speak Bisaya, whatever it is. Dapat proud ka sa sarili mo and you are proud of who you are and where you come from," sabi naman ni 1st runner up Ysabella Ysmael ng Parañaque.
"Again, Rabiya, basta Ilongga gwapa, you are able to do that," dagdag ni Ysabella.
Pinasalamatan naman ni Rabiya ang kaniyang mga kapwa beauty queen sa suporta sa kaniya.
Hindi rin kasi lingid na nagkaroon ng ilang kontrobersiya sa naturang kompetisyon.
"Thank you guys for supporting me. It has been a very difficult journey. I mean, it's been just four days. Hearing you complimenting me, it means a lot and you guys, you are queens of yourselves. And I wanna share, this is not just my crown, this is our crown," sabi ni Rabiya.--FRJ, GMA News
