With the coronation night for Binibining Pilipinas 2019 drawing near, everyone's already betting on their own favorites to bring home the title. One of social media's top picks seems to be Hannah Arnold, a 23-year-old Filipino-Australian who hails from Masbate—and in case the rumor hasn’t reached you yet, the internet is also calling her a Pia Wurtzbach lookalike.
Do you see it, too?
Well, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach herself, who was personally introduced to Hannah at the organization’s Fashion Charity Gala last Tuesday, seems to also acknowledge their resemblance. When asked by Philstar.com if she’s had the chance to meet her lookalike already, she jokingly quips, “Ah, yes! Si Hannah Arnold? I saw her kanina tapos parang napa double-take ako. ‘Salamin ba ‘yun?’ Joke lang!” Kidding aside, she then adds, “No, but she’s gorgeous.”
Hannah, who herself is a big fan of Pia, took it to Instagram to express her joy over the aforementioned meeting. “It is no hidden fact that I absolutely idolize Pia and I think you can tell from the quality of my selfie that I was shaking from disbelief to finally be meeting her,” the aspiring beauty queen captions her post. “Thank you so much Ate Pia for simply being you and for being one of my greatest inspirations in life ever since you commented on my photo in 2015. I am feeling so empowered for the coronation night this coming Sunday and am putting my trust in God for his perfect timing.”
Pia left a comment in response to Hannah’s post, writing, “You're so sweet! Good luck on Sunday. I'll be cheering for you!”
The Binibining Pilipinas 2019 coronation night is scheduled to take place tomorrow, June 9, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
