As Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach has gone through it all when it comes to pageants. She trained for years to get where she is now, competing multiple times before she finally snagged the Miss Universe-Philippines title. So obviously, the beauty queen knows pageants like the back of her hand. And in her recent video with YouTuber Patrick Starrrr, Pia shared two helpful hacks she thinks every aspiring queen should know about.
The first hack is all about slaying that swimsuit competition. Pia shares that she would put hairspray on her legs, butt and tummy to prep her body. "It helps [those areas] not jiggle when you walk in a swimsuit," she says. This way, all you have to worry about is perfecting your walk!
Another trick she revealed has to do with smiling, every beauty queen's default face onstage. Pia says that since they have to flash those pearly whites for hours (sometimes the whole day, phew!), she used to practice smiling by putting a pen between her teeth while driving. The drive to get to her training venue would take at least forty five minutes, so you bet she made the most out of the city traffic!
