During a send-off party at Novotel, Miss Universe Philippine bet Rachel Peters revealed to the press who among the candidates she thinks are her “tough” contenders for the crown.

“I have seen the girls, I have seen what they are up to and I think the two of my toughest competitions are Miss Thailand and Miss South Africa, who actually shares the same last name as me,” she said.

South Africa’s bet Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is a model, while Thailand bet Maria Lynn Ehren is a Thai-Swedish singer and model.

Although Peters checked on the social media accounts of several candidates, she thinks the real winner will be uncovered once she has met and gotten to know the ladies personally. She said: “I think it’s really anyone’s game, what you see on Instagram and Facebook that’s a picture, you can edit that picture, once you’re there, that’s when you’ll know who the real winner is.

Peters will be representing the Philippines in the Miss Universe pageant to be held on November 26 in Las Vegas.
