Pia Wurtzbach goes to Peru, marks 1st time in Latin America
Queen P is in Peru.
After her brief stay in the Philippines to pass on her Miss Universe Philippines 2015 crown to her successor Maxine Medina, reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach is now in Latin America.
Wearing a red jumpsuit, Pia shared a photo of her on Instagram with the caption: “Just arrived in Peru. <3 Loving it already and I can’t wait for tomorrow’s activities. Oh and by the way, it’s my first time in Latin America. :)”
Could she be visiting the victims of the deadly earthquake that struck Ecuador and Peru?
Nearly half a thousand people died while more than 4,000 people were injured after a powerful 7.8-magnitude quake shook Ecuador, northern Peru and southern Colombia on April 16.
No casualties were reported in Peru.
Or could she be attending the coronation night of Miss Peru? The event will be held on Saturday.
Incidentally, Miss Peru 2015, Laura Spoya, was criticized by Filipino netizens after she was quoted in a report by a Colombian news outfit that Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, should have won Miss Universe. TV host Steve Harvey committed the mistake of announcing Gutierrez as the winner during the pageant’s live broadcast in December 2015.
