The announcement of her winning moment may not be what she dreamed of but what’s important is Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach is taking home the much-coveted crown! This puts an end to the country’s 42-year wait. The last Miss Universe win the Philippines had was in 1973 by Margie Moran-Floirendo. The very first title from the pageant was bagged by actress Gloria Diaz in 1969.
