Beauty queens are starting to arrive in the country for the highly anticipated Miss Universe Coronation Night, happening on Monday, Jan 30.
On Wednesday, Jan 12, Miss Thailand Universe Chatlani became a viral sensation for having 17 pieces of luggage on her when she arrived in Manila.
Today, another beauty queen caught the attention of Filipino netizens for having a tonload of luggage with her.
Miss Belize Universe Rebecca “Bex” Rath posted a pageant update on her Facebook account just as she was about to fly to Manila. “Checked in and excited,” she captioned the photo of herself carrying a Belize flag, two trolleys full of luggage in front of her.
Two trolleys full.
According to the Facebook page Hot Off The Press—Belize, Miss Belize has about a dozen pieces of luggage with her. Five pieces short of Miss Thailand’s 17 suitcases but an astounding number nevertheless.
The box on the photo’s foreground seems to be a favorite talking point among Filipino netizens wondering. Netizen Dee Dee Marie Holiday says it best: “Nakakaloka si Miss Belize may dalang refrigerator.”
No, but seriously, seeing two beauty queens armed with a wild number of suitcases makes us incredibly excited about the National Costume part of the program.
Welcome to the Philippines, Miss Belize!
