Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters has bigger shoes to fill in and that is to continue for the 8th winning streak of the Philippines in Miss Universe. No other country has achieved such honor of having an uninterrupted finalist placement for almost a decade in the Miss Universe history except the Philippines. Will Rachel Peters continue the streak? Well, I have enumerated 6 reasons why Rachel can make it big in the most prestigious beauty pageant in the universe.

1. Excellent English Communication Skills. - Rachel is half British, so it's no wonder why she can speak the language perfectly. She graduated from La Trobe University in Australia with a degree in Business, Tourism and Events. The Miss Universe titleholder is the spokesperson of the organization and it is just imperative that she has a clear command of the universal language. Being able to express oneself in English fluently will give her the edge over the other contenders especially during the nerve-racking question-and-answer portion of the pageant where quick thinking skills and the ability to put ones thoughts into words which everyone can understand is a must to breeze to the top.

2. Smart and Witty. - At this rate, based on her Q&A performance, I think that Rachel has already overcome her stage fright especially in answering the final question before a huge audience. If you have watched the Miss World Philippines 2014 edition, Rachel suddenly lost her train of thoughts during the make or break final interview which cost her the crown. Good thing, Rachel had learnt from that experience and had managed to come back stronger, smarter and wittier. Her ability to outsmart the other contenders with her eloquence in delivering her thoughts makes her a stronger contender for the Miss Universe crown.

3. Killer Body. - What sets her apart from her predecessors is her gorgeous, slender body and longer legs that seem to stretch endlessly. Unlike the past Misses Philippines, Rachel doesn't need to break a leg in the gym just to achieve the Miss Universe look. All she has to do is to maintain her natural figure. She has the same body structure with former

Miss Universe winners Gabriela Isler of Venezuela (Miss Universe 2013) and Paulina Vega of Colombia (Miss Universe 2014). She can literally stand side by side with the beautiful Latinas and towering Europeans.  And knowing how she was trained by the Kagandahang Flores beauty camp, she could easily stand out in the Swimsuit segment of Miss Universe.

4. Pageant Experience and Training. - Binibing Pilipinas wasn't her first national pageant. Rachel had already competed in Miss World Philippines 2014 where she placed as 4th Princess to the eventual winner Valerie Weigmann who succeeded Miss World 2013 Megan Young. And her pageant experience has contributed a lot to where

she is at the moment. In addition to that, she is continuously training with some of the country's elite mentors in pageantry. From where I stand, what Rachel needs is polishing and achieving the right look for the upcoming Miss Universe season.

5. Good Work Ethics with Pleasant Personality. - A Miss Universe will be working with a lot of people from its management owners, down to its sponsors around the world, and other VIPs for its existence and mission. So it is just logical that the organization will still be looking for someone with a pleasant work ethics. Someone who is easy to work with and who understands the business. This is where the likes of Rachel Peters can shine through. Knowing that Rachel has worked professionally as an event organizer for their business and has successfully organized international concert events for Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera, the job as a Miss Universe won't be an uphill task for her. 

6. Great Stage Presence with Outstanding Pasarela Skills. - To stand out in the sea of beauties in Miss Universe pageant, a stronger stage presence is a must. And the contender should be able to pull off a flawless performance on stage with solid runway skills. Rachel has a towering height and she moves like a gazelle, gliding perfectly on stage (courtesy from Kagandahang Flores beauty camp) who trained her how to walk effortlessly. 

I know that at this rate, it is still premature to judge her chances in Miss Universe. Although at this point, we can see massive potentials for Rachel Peters to clinch the crown back to the Philippine shores. Peters has 6 or more months to prepare for the beauty battle. Let's see how far she can go. I can only hope for the best.
