The candidates of the most prestigious beauty pageant in the world are already making waves ever since their arrival here in the Philippines, but the competition just got all the more intense--and hotter, shall we say--for the girls have recently strutted their stuff in the swimsuit presentation.
The event was held at JPark Island Resort and Waterpark in Cebu on January 17, where the girls were able to give a glimpse of what we would be seeing come the grand coronation night. Here are some snapshots from the Inquirer.
Here is Miss US Virgin Islands, looking oh-so-fierce in her blue swimwear:
Kinda reminiscent of Queen Pia's gown, right? Notice the resemblance of the color. And here is Miss Ukraine, looking lovely in that striped affair:
Miss Uruguay seemingly had the same pattern, but not the same pose:
Miss Vietnam, looking oh-so-fresh with her gorgeous locks:
And our very own Maxine Medina, rocking that shimmering swimwear like no one else's business! Who would've thought one-pieces would be this sexy?
But what got the crowd talking was Miss China's blue swimsuit! Li Zhenying walked the runway confidently, where her "cameltoe" was exposed--a slang term which refers to the outline of a woman's private part in a tightly-fitting outfit.
Now that's confidence in a high level! Miss China's Li is a 23-year-old native of Shanghai, studying Administration at the Polytechnic University, according to Miss Universe's own website.
When she's not studying, she's playing ukelele or volunteering at Smile Train. She was also a host for a Rio Olympics Games television show. Her interests are singing, dancing, and acting.
We're keeping an eye on you, Miss China! Keep slayin' that swimsuit of yours.
