![CDATA[Jubilant Filipino fans, the Philippine flag and successful Filipina beauty queens. These are some of the highlights of the 1:52-minute heartwarming trailer for the 63rd Miss Universe beauty pageant released by the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) in the US and broadcast over NBC network. "Nakakatuwa na sa trailer ng Miss Universe ipinakita kung gaano tayong mga Pinoy fans sumuporta sa kandidata natin. Nakakataba ng puso na recognized 'yun ng MUO. May watawat pa ng Pilipinas, parada na may kalesa, ang mga hiyawan natin bilang fans,'' commented an unidentified fan in missosology, a popular website for beauty pageants. Paula Shugart, president of the MUO, earlier recognized the Filipino fans, saying that "the Philippines is home to our biggest and most passionate fan base, which is so meaningful to the Miss Universe family.” Stella Marquez Araneta, chair, Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc., which sends delegates to the Miss Universe pageant and other prestigious beauty competitions, said that the Filipino fans have been recognized by other beauty contests as truly supportive of our candidates. "We are known around the world as a country of beautiful women and supportive fans,'' Mrs. Araneta said. Miss Philippines Mary Jean Lastimosa of North Cotabato will represent the country in the most prestigious beauty contest to be held in Miami, Florida on January 25, 2015 (January 26, Manila time).]]
