Miss Philippines Ariella Arida has made it to Miss Universe 2013 Top 16, then Top 10 and eventually Top 5! Hurray!!!!

PHILIPPINES IN THE TOP 16
Ariella Arida was the last candidate to be called as one of the Top 16 semi-finalists of Miss Universe 2013. (She was secured with a Top 16 slot after winning the People's Choice voting conducted at Miss Universe official website.)

Aside from Philippines, the other candidates who made it to the Top 16 are:

Brazil, Jakelyne Oliveira
China, Jin Ye
Costa Rica, Fabiana Granados
Dominican Republic, Yaritza Reyes
Ecuador, Constanza Báez
Great Britain, Amy Willerton
India, Manasi Moghe
Indonesia, Whulandary Herman
Nicaragua, Nastassja Bolívar
Puerto Rico, Monic Pérez
Spain, Patricia Rodríguez
Switzerland, Dominique Rinderknecht
Ukraine, Olga Storozhenko
USA, Erin Brady
Venezuela, María Gabriela Isler

Host candidate, Miss Russia Elmira Abdrazakova, failed to make it, but the real BIG MISSES, the big favorites who failed to enter the semis, are Miss Poland Paulina Krupinska and Miss Israel Yityish Aynaw.

Probably, the BIG SURPRISE or the most surprising candidate in the Top 16 (but not that much) is Miss China, Jin Ye.

PHILIPPINES IN THE TOP 10
After the Top 16 competed in swimsuit, they were trimmed down to just 10 with Miss Philippines included!

Brazil, Jakelyne Oliveira
Dominican Republic, Yaritza Reyes
Ecuador, Constanza Báez
Great Britain, Amy Willerton
India, Manasi Moghe
Philippines, Ariella Arida
Spain, Patricia Rodríguez
Ukraine, Olga Storozhenko
USA, Erin Brady
Venezuela, María Gabriela Isler

The Top 10 is generally favorable, except that big favorite Miss Puerto Rico is not one of them. Never expected Miss Ecuador to reach this far, but it's quite fine 'coz she was so great in the swimsuit round.

The Evening Gown competition was next and determined the candidates who will advance to the Top 5.

PHILIPPINES IN THE TOP 5
After the EG round, the Top 5 finalists were announced and it included once again Ariella Arida.

Brazil, Jakelyne Oliveira
Ecuador, Constanza Báez
Philippines, Ariella Arida
Spain, Patricia Rodríguez
Venezuela, María Gabriela Isler

Have you noticed? Miss Philippines, the only Asian, was against Hispanic or Latina candidates in the Top 5. Remember the controversy? Indeed, she was out there to prove something. In fact, she's the only one who didn't use an interpreter.

But the judges still favored 3 candidates over Ariella and gave her the 3rd Runner Up placement.

FINAL AND OFFICIAL RESULTS:
Miss Universe 2013 - Venezuela, María Gabriela Isler
1st Runner Up - Spain, Patricia Rodríguez
2nd Runner Up - Ecuador, Constanza Báez
3rd Runner Up - Philippines, Ariella Arida
4th Runner Up - Brazil, Jakelyne Oliveira

She may have failed to win the title, but Ara has continued Philippines' Top 5 / Runner-Up streak in Miss Universe.

Venus Raj started it out in 2010, placing 4th Runner Up, then Shamcey Supsup finished 3rd Runner Up in 2011. Last year, Janine Tugonon was so close to winning, finishing 1st Runner Up. And now, the runner-up finish continues, with Ariella Arida as Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner Up. Good job Ara!
