US beauties in town
Miss Universe 2015 second runner-up Olivia Jordan and Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez arrived in Manila last Monday for the Miss Universe 2016 contest. They will shoot behind-the-scenes coverage of the beauty pageant through the social media assets of Smart, the official wireless service provider of the 65th Miss Universe pageant.
“Hello Manila! Just arrived and ready to explore with Olivia! I can’t believe we are here to watch Miss Universe,” said Sanchez on Instagram.
“Twice the #MissUSA love coming your way #Philippines,” said Jordan.
Jordan and Sanchez are also here to cheer for Miss USA Deshauna Barber and for reigning Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines.
“It has been a joy to watch Pia during her reign. She has inspired me so much. I have been lucky to know her because she is so inspirational and kind and she has been an incredible Miss Universe. The next one will have big shoes to fill! It’s nice to come back year later and just cheer for Pia,” said Jordan.
“I would love to work in the Philippines. As you probably know, I’m an actress and a model and there’s great acting and modeling in the Philippines. I would love to extend this trip into a longer one or come back again and be able to see more of the islands. PLDT and Smart have been generous to bring us here. We’re just so excited to post updates about the pageant on our Facebook Live and our other social media accounts and I hope you will follow us,” she added.
Sanchez said: “We will make sure you get glimpses and behind-the-scenes as we plan to go to the rehearsals and see the girls.”
On Miss Universe host Steve Harvey, Jordan said: “Steve Harvey, if you need help reading that card, I can be his assistant on stage because I remember helping and telling Pia that she won last year,  so it would be lucky for me to tell someone again (that she won Miss Universe).”
