Pia Wurtzbach

Actress, TV host, Model
Location: Philippines

How many people can say they’ve been Miss Universe? The title was certainly no smooth sailing for Pia, who entered Binibining Pilipinas Pageant 3 times before she could even qualify for Miss Philippines, and onto the global stage. Afterwards, there’s no turning back from that level of celebrity – and then, of course, there was that infamous announcement. Sure, the gorgeous German-Filipina got additional attention, but it was how the former TV host, model and actress (the main breadwinner for her family) conducted herself that showed the universe that she not only has beauty, she also has class. Additionally, she has been the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for Asia & the Pacific since 2016, and has been vocal about issues such as HIV/AIDs awareness, LGBT rights, and gender equality. She is planning on making her acting comeback by starring as the antagonist in the film Gandarrapido: The Revenger Squad to be released in 2017.
