For Miss Universe Organization president Paula Shugart, it is “a dream come true” to finally host the pageant in the Philippines.
Wurtzbach, meanwhile, said she is “grateful” that the pageant is finally happening in her home country. “It’s not only a dream of Paula’s, a dream of the Miss Universe organization but also a dream of mine to bring back the competition here, and to show the world how beautiful the Philippines is,” the 2015 queen said. “And it would really be great if I can finally have a proper walk on stage in no less than in my home country of course.”
