R’Bonney Gabriel shared how’s her first week as Miss Universe
Miss USA R’Bonney Gabriel talked about her reactions during the Miss Universe 2022 announcement.
The most prestigious international pageant was held in New Orleans last January 14, 2023, and the representative from the United States of America came out triumphant. R’Bonney impressed the judges and pageant fans through her performance, especially during the final question and answer part.
It can be seen in videos that surfaced online that R’Bonney’s Filipino father was all-out support for her. This is one of the reasons why Filipino pageant fans are somehow happy even though the Philippines’ bet Celeste Cortesi did not win.
In an interview after the coronation night, ABS-CBN reporter Dyan Castillejo asked R’Bonney Gabriel to give her message to her Filipino fans. The Fil-Am beauty said that she will always be grateful to Filipino fans and that she appreciates every support they give to her.
A week after the pageant, Dyan sat down with the reigning Miss Universe. The Kapamilya reporter asked the beauty queen about her first week as newly-crowned Miss Universe and the latter said that she has been very busy since the coronation night.
She did all the media engagements and moved to her new apartment. R’Bonney shared that it is in a great location and it is bigger than what she has first expected it to be. “It has natural lights and windows. New York, so far, has been amazing. It’s been busy and good,” she said.
Then, Dyan looked back on R’Bonney’s crowning moment. The reporter asked if she did not hear the announcement because momentarily, she just stood there. R’Bonney shared that when the host announced Miss USA, she was thinking, “did I hear it right?”
“Is it really me? I was so shocked. I kinda blacked out a little bit. I didn’t really believe it was me,” R’Bonney shared, adding that it was the reason why she looked confused and her reaction was delayed.
