1. WHEN SHE MADE THE OTHER QUEENS HER OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER

When you’re MJ Lastimosa, it doesn’t matter if you’ve won a title. Even if you’re Miss Universe, she’ll still ask you to take her photos. A few of her notable photographers are Rabiya Mateo, Janine Tugonon, Victoria Vincent, and Maureen Wroblewitz. Queen things.

2. HER REACTION TO BEING ROASTED FOR HER NATCOS

“Mythology of the cake di pweds,” she responds as people compared her national costume to our fierce contender. We don’t know about you, but we loooove our cake, cake, cake! Even MJ was shook when she saw Beatrice’s Bakunawa costume! “Eto na ata pinaka magandang Ph natcos natin by far, realtalk lungs

3. SHE KNOWS EVERYONE NEEDS A FILIPINA IN THEIR LIVES

When MJ Lastimosa flew to Israel to support our Miss Universe, she said people were stunned by her presence and was asked if everyone else in the Philippines is as beautiful as her. Of course, she responded in the sassiest way. She said what she said!

4. SHE WASN’T AFRAID TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT EVEN SHE WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS DURING MISS GRAND INTERNATIONAL 2021

Same, MJ. Same. To pee or not to pee?

Do you sense her regal aura as she supported another queen? Yes all the way.

6. WHEN SHE WENT IG LIVE TO SUPPORT RABIYA MATEO

TBH, we’re here for MJ Lastimosa’s funny and witty commentary, we could listen to her all day.

7. WHEN MJ GOT DRESSED BECAUSE SHE KNEW SHE’D BE THE ‘NOISIEST’

Note to self: you can’t get mad at a person who dresses well and obviously, MJ got the memo.

8. MJ’S REACTION TO RABIYA’S ~DRAMATIC~ FALL DURING HER FINAL WALK AS MISS UNIVERSE PHILIPPINES

If you can recall, Rabiya Mateo sort of tripped when she did her catwalk at the previous Miss Universe Philippines pageant. But instead of letting it spoil the mood for the whole night, she owned up to it and still slayed her walk. Now that’s what you call a graceful exit as MJ puts it.

9. SHE HAS A SOFT SPOT FOR THE OTHER QUEENS

It’s MJ Lastimosa’s world and we’re just living in it. Her best asset? Her beauty a.k.a “gunthe” (ganda) that obviously even the current queens like Hannah Arnold are very much aware of. But more than that, she is always at the ready whenever a fellow queen needs anything. Help? Hype? Humor? Call MJ Lastimosa and she will be there.

10. SHE POKES FUN AT HERSELF AND ALSO HER FELLOW QUEENS

MJ really woke up and chose violence!

11. WHEN SHE CALLED OUT RABIYA’S POSER AND ENDED UP GETTING BLOCKED
