Rabiya Mateo guested on ‘The Boobay and Tekla Show’
Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo revealed her choice when asked to choose between Miss Universe crown, her love life, or having a peaceful life.
After her beauty pageant stint, Rabiya is now set to do her showbiz projects after officially signing a contract with GMA-7. Just recently, she guested on the TBATS hosted by comedians Boobay and Tekla.
One of the questions that were asked to her was her choice if she would choose one between the crown, love life, or peaceful life. The Ilongga beauty chose the Miss Universe Crown.
“Siguro doon ako sa Miss Universe crown kasi hindi lang ‘yun yong pangarap ko. Pangarap din ‘yon ng maraming Pilipino, nang sangkabaklaan na sumuporta sa akin,” she said.
Rabiya Mateo admitted that losing was painful for her. She said that there were moments when she would recall what happened during the pageant and “what ifs” enters her mind.
On the other hand, she said that slowly, she has accepted the fact that no matter what she will do, there are things that she still can’t have but she said life does not stop there.
Rabiya also mentioned the negative reactions that she received. She shared that she talked to her mom about this saying that this is the life of celebrity and that it is inevitable not to receive bashing.
The celebrity from Iloilo City also admitted that she used to read negative comments against her and she wondered why people have to say those kinds of nasty things.
Rabiya Mateo said that she realized that she can’t control what other people may think and say against her but she can control what will be her reaction.
She also recalled that she got worried about the reaction of Filipinos when she was not called as one of the Top 10 finalists. “Tumatakbo talaga sa isip ko ‘Maba-bash talaga ako nito’ tapos parang nanginginig ako pero kailangan kong suot yung gown ko kasi lalabas kami ulit,” she shared.
