Ariella Arida, Binibini #41, was crowned Miss Universe Philippines (formerly called Bb. Pilipinas-Universe). She will represent the country in this year’s Miss Universe pageant.
Aside from beating 49 other candidates for the coveted title, Ariella Arida also won Best in Swimsuit.
The 24-year-old BS Chemistry graduate from UP Los Baños received the following question from Dir. Gen. Allan Purisimo: “Give one lesson about life that women can teach men.”
Arida’s answer: “One lesson in life that we women can teach men is being sensitive because we all know that men are more logical when it comes to decision. They are usually rational and straighforward but we women, we use our heart and we tend to be emotional in our decisions so that’s it for me, sensitivity is what we women can teach to men.”
