The highly anticipated coronation night of the Miss Universe Philippines 2021 concluded on September 30 after an impressive performance from the Top 28 delegates. The night ended with the following candidates dominating the Top 5: Miss Cebu City Beatrice Luigi Gomez as Miss Universe Philippines 2021, Miss Taguig Katrina Dimaranan as Miss Universe Philippines Tourism, Miss Cavite Victoria Velasquez Vincent as Miss Universe Philippines Charity, Miss Pangasinan Maureen Wroblewitz as First Runner-Up, and Miss Cebu Province Steffi Aberasturi as Second Runner-Up.
Despite having these queens win their respective titles, it seems there was another winner last night and it's none other than Juan Karlos Labajo, who bagged the ~Most Supportive BF~ award! While the pageant proper was unfolding, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter was actively posting the funniest and sweetest messages as a show of support for his S.O. Maureen Wroblewitz.
Maureen was a consistent frontrunner throughout the pageant process, and fans were thoroughly impressed by her performance despite being a newcomer in the pageant scene—JK included!
JK had nothing but lovely words for Miss Pangasinan.
While it may seem like a totally unrelated joke, the confidence he has in Maureen is on ~100~.
This pickup line is funny and low-key sweet, tbh!
Maureen may not have won the title that night, but she definitely won the hearts of many, especially her #1 fan.
ICYDK, Juan Karlos "JK" Labajo first entered the music scene after joining The Voice Kids in 2014. He's a singer-songwriter most known for the hit "Buwan," the music video of which featured Maureen. He's also an actor and has appeared in teleseryes like Pangako Sa 'Yo and A Love to Last.
Maureen first rose to prominence after winning Asia's Next Top Model Season 5, becoming the first ever Pinay to win the competition. She became a host on the GMA variety show Eat Bulaga! in 2018. In 2021, Maureen joined Star Magic.
News of Maureen and JK's relationship began in 2019, but the two unofficially confirmed speculations in 2020 through their social media posts.
