In case you've been living under the rock, but these past few days Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray is seriously making rounds online as she struts her stuff during Miss U's preliminary competition in Bangkok, Thailand.

Miss Philippines Catriona Gray earned the coveted title, and was brought to tears by the exciting victory, which saw her take on the title held by the outgoing Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who represented South Africa when she won last December.

The first runner-up was Tamaryn Green of South Africa and the third-place finisher was Sthefany Gutierrez of Venezuela.

In 2016, she was hailed Miss World Philippines. Harvey joked briefly about the incident in exchanges with contestants and said: "You all can't let that go" and "I'm still here".

Catriona Gray pipped 93 other contestants to win the title.
