Bea Gomez's journey to the Miss Universe crown concluded with an impressive Top 5 finish this December 13, 2021.
The Cebuana beauty queen was able to exhibit her powerful "Luigi Walk" in the Swimsuit and Evening Gown segments before ending her run just a sliver away from the final Q&A. Nonetheless, the 26-year-old has a lot to be proud of, especially considering this was only her fourth pageant to participate in.
In the first Q&A round, Bea was asked by Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittanaere, "Given the ever-changing COVID situation, what is your opinion of mandating a universal vaccine passport?"
To this, she answered, "I believe that public health is everyone's responsibility. And to mandate vaccine inoculation is necessary. And if mandating vaccine passport would help us in regulating the rollouts of vaccine and mitigate the situation of the pandemic today, then I would agree on mandating the necessary passport of vaccination."
Advancing to the next and final round were Miss Paraguay, Miss South Africa, and Miss India. The latter, Harnaaz Sandhu, was ultimately crowned the victor of the evening.
What a run, Bea! We're so proud of you!
