Great news Rachel Peters fans as this post is an update on the reigning Miss Universe Philippines’ preparations and training.
After two months filled with public appearances, sponsor visits, media guesting, charity visits and a full PLDT provincial tour, Rachel Peters starts her Miss Universe intensive training this week. According to Sir Rodgil Flores himself, the Kagandahang Flores core team had a meeting together with Rachel and the rest of the Bb. Pilipinas queens a couple of weeks ago to do assessment plus discuss their training needs. They already have formulated the training schedule and plans with full blast training starting this week.
The 5’10” British-Filipina is blessed with what pageant experts say as the ‘Miss Universe body’. Hers is comparable to those of Paulina Vega, Gabriela Isler and Amelia Vega with her proportions. So it wouldn’t take much to hone her body to MU standards considering Rachel still manages to squeeze in some training despite her hectic schedules for the past 2 months. She has also reached out to past MUP winners like Maxine Medina to get tips and is waiting for Pia Wurtzbach to have a break in her schedule to sit down and talk about MU. Rachel definitely isn’t sitting down on her laurels.
She herself has this to say about the pressures of representing the country in Miss Universe:
“There are many aspects to beauty pageant training. There’s the Pasarela, which is walking training. There’s fitness, Q&A, hair and make-up; so it’s gonna be exactly what I’ve been doing, but more intense…
I’m working with myself before I do my training. With the training naman, it’s kind of like riding a bike. Once you know how to walk, you’re not going to stop knowing how to work. It is what it’s really all about. Working on you in the inside and then it will shine through…
I’m still so overwhelmed and excited about everything that’s been happening to me and I really want to enjoy it and take it all in. I think it’s important to go into the pageant with a very positive mindset so I’ll just keep training, doing my best and try not to stress myself out”
So we should just be patient and wait-and-see as her training unfurls. She has been preparing herself inside and out for the pageant. This is a sure-fire way to prepare now that the Miss Universe pageant is looking for more substance in their winners. And no doubt about it, Rachel is up to the task…
