Catriona Gray draws 1 million followers on Instagram
MANILA, Philippines — Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray has reached a milestone on Instagram, with her followers peaking at one million on the eve of the much-awaited coronation of the Miss Universe pageant.
In an Instagram post, Gray thanked her supporters.
She posted a photo set from a previous photoshoot with the caption: “1 MILLION OF YOU?!??? ?? Thank you for joining in this journey with me!!!”
Earlier, the Fil-Aussie stunner caught the hearts of Filipinos when she came out in an attire inspired by the islands of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao during the national costume competition last Monday.
Gray also went viral for when her “slow-mo twirl” during the swimsuit portion of the preliminary competition of the Miss Universe pageant last Thursday left netizens in awe.
Gray is set to take the stage once again for the finale of the Miss Universe pageant with 93 other beauty queens on Dec. 17 (Manila time) which will be broadcasted live from Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.
If Gray bags the crown, she will be the fourth Filipina to become Miss Universe, following in the footsteps of Pia Wurtzbach who won in 2015, Margie Moran in 1973, Gloria Diaz in 1969. /atm
