Today marks the day that we get to be introduced to the new Miss Universe.
However, as much as we are rooting for a back-to-back win (that as of now, only Venezuela was able to pull off) from queens Catriona Gray and Gazini Ganados, our representative for this year failed to advance to the top 10.
Sure enough, Filipinos are quick to let out their frustrations on Twitter. Here are some of the saddest (and may we add, witty? Yes, let’s channel our inner distress with humor) reactions that we have gathered:

Meanwhile, Gazini’s opening statement reminded some of Patch Magtanong’s (who is still believed to be robbed of the Miss International crown) “We can ensure that no woman anytime, anywhere is left behind” Q&A statement.

Due to this, the gays of the internet can’t help but picture an alternate universe where Atty./Queen Patch is the one gracing the stage today:

Just an opinion I can see Patch Magtanong better in that stage now, DONT FIGHT ME!!!

So it was the Miss Universe Organization already that motioned they are not looking for a super model. They are looking for an Ambassador.
So, if it was Patch Magtanong we could have a battle of Lawyers. I mean that can genuinely talk that can voice the need of everyone.

Anyway, before we get all mopey, let us bow down to our new Miss Universe!
