Miriam Quiambao meets the OG Miss Universe


Nobody beats the original.

That thought probably went through Miriam Quiambao’s head during her one-on-one with Gloria Diaz, the first Miss Philippines to ever win the Miss Universe crown.

“Honored to have the opportunity to interview our very first Miss Universe, Miss Gloria Diaz @its.gloriadiaz. Catch our interview on the #MissUniverse2017Primer on January 29, 2017 on @tv5manila,” Bacacay, Albay native Miriam wrote on her Instagram.

Two other Filipina Miss Universes have since followed Diaz in Margie Moran and Pia Wurtzbach, but they don’t quite compare to their predecessor’s regal charm.

Quiambao almost became a Miss Universe herself, reaching 1st runner up honors in 1999.
