A queen doesn’t only get to be one, but she should feel like one. The weight of the crown is truly proportional to the weight of its responsibilities, which is why these prizes are essential to keep our Miss Universe going. Besides, the incentive theory of motivation aka the reward theory works, right?

Here are the prizes won by Miss Universe Philippines 2020, Rabiya Mateo.

1. The ‘Filipina’

What’s a queen without a crown? You can name every strong female out there… but a queen with this crown? All hail. Designed by the Villarica Pawnshop, the ‘Filipina’ is valued at a whopping Php 5 million. It is made with the most precious gems and stones such as sapphire, ruby, topaz, diamonds, and South Sea pearls. It’s not only the materials used to bring this crown to life that makes it special— but also its meaning, which is said to embody the flag for the most phenomenal woman.

2. A Brand-New Car

Miss Universe Philippines will surely go to a lot of places, and walking in heels is not as glamorous as it looks. And so, her new MG ZS Alpha could help her perform her tasks faster. President and CEO of MG Philippines, Alberto B. Arcilla, said in a statement that the company has been looking for partnerships that could project their brand values and show their vehicles’ utility and versatility- and the Miss Universe Philippines is perfectly fit to carry that representation.

3. Cash Prize

This year is under new management, so it is only right to start a fruitful journey with a bang. The Miss Universe Philippines Organization announced that the cash prize this year is the biggest one in the history of Philippine pageantry. While the post was vague with the exact amount, people are assuming that it is more than Php 1.6 million, which was won by Catriona Gray last 2018.

4. An Apartment

The job of a beauty queen is not all glamour and vanity. There are a series of projects, meetings, and events lined up for Miss Universe Philippines, hence, there will surely be long days for her. This new apartment will serve as her home to relax in, and to energize for another day full of work and responsibilities.

5. Projects here and there (and her own team!)

During her reign, Rabiya Mateo will be a highly demanded ambassadress for several brands and sponsorships. Just upon winning the crown, she already has dozens of scheduled appointments, photoshoots, press conferences, events, and charitable causes. These projects will surely grow in number as she goes on with her reign, which is why she will also be given her own glam team plus a personal assistant to help her get on with her day!
