The preliminaries were already done and we've seen how the Philippines sizzled together with the season's front runners in both swimwear and evening gown.
Although the evening gown portion wasn't quite superb than the swimwear, her performances were still a cut above the rest which made Ariella a definite standout and a strong force to be reckoned with.
Should the stars of the universe would align on her favor come finals, there is no doubt she would be able to continue the top five winning streak of the Philippines for four consecutive years. And this time around when Ariella lands on the magic five there's no holding back, she'll definitely bend over backwards to win that one elusive Nexus crown.
