The Philippines’ Miss Universe candidate, Rabiya Mateo, has received a message of support from Thai superstar Mario Maurer in her bid for the pageant crown.
The “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” lead actor was asked about Rabiya, who is very vocal about being one of his Filipino fans, during the virtual media conference on May 11, 2021, where he was named as an endorser of a local telecommunication company.
It could be recalled that during her arrival in the United States on May 6, 2021, the Ilongga beauty queen was approached by Thailand-based social media and asked for her message for Thai fans.
Rabiya mentioned that she is excited to visit Thailand soon and is an avid fan of Mario.
“Hello, everybody. Sawadee ka,” the Filipino-Indian beauty greeted the Thai pageant fans. “This is Rabiya from the Philippines. I’m so excited to go visit Thailand.”
The education ambassador added, “I’m a huge fan of Mario Maurer, to be honest. I’ve been watching your Boy Love series.
“And yeah, maybe soon I may be able to go to the country of smile,” Rabiya concluded.
In the virtual media conference, Mario shared that Rabiya’s message actually reached him.
“I heard that Rabiya is kind of a fan of mine, and I’m very happy to hear that,” the 32-year-old Thai actor-model told the media.
Maurer then sent a good luck message to Rabiya.
“And you know I wish her good luck because I know she’s in the competition, so I wish her good luck,” Mario said.
The Pinay beauty queen was delighted with her favorite actor’s sweet gesture.
“OMG!!! Fangirling rn,” she wrote on her Instagram Story that came with a side-by-side photo of her and Mario with a headline that reads ‘Mario Maurer has message for big fan Rabiya Mateo for Miss Universe 2020’.
Rabiya is currently in Florida, U.S.A. to represent the Philippines at the 69th edition of Miss Universe. The grand coronation will be held on May 16 (May 17 in the Philippines) at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
