Rachel Peters on Miss U loss: "I gave my all..."

A day after the Miss Universe 2017 pageant, Miss Philippines Rachel Peters took to her Instagram account to thank all those who supported her in what she considers as her greatest achievement to date.

Rachel finished only as a Top 10 finalist yesterday, despite delivering a wonderful performance worthy of at least a Top 5 finish. But she's not bitter at all and said on IG that she's still proud to be the 66th Pinay to represent the Philippines at Miss Universe. "Without a doubt my greatest achievement to date!! ✨To be the 66th Filipina to stand on the Miss Universe stage with the most beautiful girls in the world, and to represent the most amazing country- Ang mahal kong Pilipinas! 🇵🇭 Thank you so much to everyone who was part of this journey, i am SO lucky to have every single one of you in my life. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine I would be brave enough to do something like this, but you all are the reason I got to where I am. I'm still so overwhelmed by all the love ❤️."

Rachel also told her supporters that she really gave her all during the pageant, but she believes it wasn't really her destiny to win.

"I promise I gave my all but I've always been a believer in fate, destiny and God's perfect timing so I'm thankful for the opportunity and the memories, but I am so looking forward to seeing what God has in store for me, and to come home to the Philippines. First thing on the agenda-Sinigang!!! 😍"

Yeah, I agree with you girl.

It was somebody else's luck and destiny to win.

I was actually hoping Rachel would address the "camp wars" controversy, on what she thinks about it, since some are blaming Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach for her fate at the pageant.

Pia was among the 5 judges yesterday, and it can't be avoided if people would bring up the so-called "camp war" since Pia is under Aces & Queens beauty camp, while Rachel is from Kagandahang Flores.

Others believe the judges gave Rachel low scores during the evening gown competition, and her home votes weren't enough to secure a Top 5 slot.

Right after the Top 5 were announced at the Miss Universe 2017 pageant, it was shown that Rachel topped in the home votes, followed by Venezuela, Thailand, Colombia and Jamaica. However, it was South Africa who advanced instead of her.

Queen Pia has already reacted on the "camp war" issue. "I was fair to everyone. I was fair not just only to Miss Philippines but to everyone. That's perhaps the reason why the Miss Universe Organization chose to me be a judge because they knew I would be fair," Pia told ABS-CBN News.

Miss World 2013 Megan Young, who was also trained by Aces & Queens, also defended Pia on Twitter and said that such thing don't exist among them.

@meganbata: "Rachel, you made us proud. Now, let's stop these "camp wars". There is no such thing amongst us. Yes, we train with different groups but we respect one another and we give our support however we can. It is always #ForThePhilippines 🇵🇭"
