MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Before Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach became Miss Philippines and Miss Universe, it has been rumored that Philippine President Aquino was dating her. No less than Aquino’s showbiz sister, Kris, fueled the rumor during an interview with Wurtzbach in one of her TV shows, where she asked Wurtzbach, “Are you dating my brother?”
Well, that rumor has been put to rest. Wurtzbach herself denied the rumors during a radio interview in New York after she won the Miss Universe crown. “That’s so no,” she said during the interview when asked if the rumors were true.
Now we know of course that Wurtzbach is dating America’s “Sexiest Doctor Alive,” Mikhail Varshavski.
But Aquino seems to be focusing his attention on beauty queens. The latest rumor is that the bachelor president was seen dating the reigning Miss U.S.A and Miss Universe second runner-up Olivia Jordan. Jordan is currently in the country where she sat on the panel of judges for Sunday’s 2016 ‘Binibining Pilipinas’ (Miss Philippines) beauty pageant.
Both Aquino and Jordan were mum on the rumors, so we may need to check later with Wurtzbach. After all, the two beauty queens are roommates in New York. Girls don’t lie to each other, do they?
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Quick trivia: who was the very first Miss Universe?
If you said Armi Kuusela, you’re absolutely right. The beauty queen from Finland won the Miss Universe crown at the age of 17. That was in 1952. The rest is history, so they say. She ended up marrying a Filipino, Virgilio Hilario, but not until she gave up her crown eight months into her reign. After all, the title was MISS, not Mrs. Universe.
Fast forward to 2016. This time the Miss Universe is Filipina, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
A few months into her reign, she has openly admitted that she was dating America’s “sexiest doctor alive,” Mikhail Varshavski.
Will love wait, or will history repeat itself? If does repeat, it will be the other way around: not a Filipino winning the heart of Miss Universe. Miss Universe — a Filipina — does the winning over.
It’s been over four months since that controversial Miss Universe pageant in which the wrong winner was announced by host Steve Harvey, but the rivalry between Miss Philippines (actual winner) and Miss Colombia (actual first runner-up) continues.
Now, Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, wants a date with America’s “Sexiest Doctor Alive.”
But wait, isn’t Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach already dating the doctor, Mikhail Varshavski?
Relax, Pia fans. You’re thinking of the wrong doctor.
Gutierrez wants to date Dr. Evan Antin, a veterinarian, chosen by People magazine as the “Sexiest Beast Charmer Alive.”
