Upon arriving at the Dusit Thani Hotel – Bangkok (2018 Miss Universe’s Official Residence), the Filipina beauty queen was swarmed with photographers both local and foreign media.
Thai fans who recognized the highly-anticipated queen greeted her with so much fervor you’ll think she is the host delegate.
Making her way to the registration and fitting room, Catriona had to go through long hallways filled with pageant onlookers. Gray was greeted by hundreds of camera flashing on her face while she humbly waved at them.
Gray and host delegate Ning Sophida were the two delegates well-received by media.
According to the people who are on-site, Gray is probably the most guarded delegate in the pageant.
In 2015, Pia Wurtzbach was often accompanied by security marshalls because of the number of people hoping to see her. She was the most heavily-guarded delegate in the 2015 pageant.
Wurtzbach, as we all know, won Miss Universe. Will Catriona accomplish the same?
We will know that on December 17 at the Mise Universe Coronation Night! 👑
