Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach got emotional when Miss USA 2015 Olivia Jordan passed on her crown at the Miss USA 2016 beauty pageant in Las Vegas over the weekend.
The two became best friends during the Miss Universe 2015 pageant and remained BFFs after Wurtzbach won the Miss Universe crown. Here are some of the best BFF moments of Wurtzbach and Jordan.
1. Since Jordan has relinquished her title to the new Miss USA, she will now leave the Miss Universe apartment she shared with Wurtzbach in New York for almost six months, Tempo wrote.
Wurtzbach wrote an emotional message for Jordan on Instagram: “Was at the office and … Hey you, pretty girl. See you soon. I hate walking past your room with the door wide open and inside is completely empty. Good thing there’s that burger joint nearby you introduced me to … it eases the sepanx a bit. A bit. Call it emotional eating but whatever. Can we eat there in Vegas, please?? Do you even have time to do a quick shopping trip? @theoliviajordan see you soon. Promise you’ll take me to LA one day, ok? I’ve never been. And I promise to take you to all the nice islands in the Philippines. Incognito of course 🙂 and last but not least … Pilipinas, petition to show the Miss USA 2016 competition on TV in the Philippines!!! Hearts for yes!!!”
2.In another IG post, the reigning Miss Universe described how she met Jordan. She wrote, “Our very first photo together as candidates for Miss Universe.❤️ I’ll never forget seeing this tall stunning girl walk across the hallway as some of us wait for our turn to be interviewed. I introduced myself and even asked for a photo 😂 though I was terribly shy 😂 When we finally chatted, it felt so good to talk to somebody who was just being herself. During Miss Universe, yes I had my friends, but I was quiet because I’m an overthinker (still am 😂) and I was under a lot of pressure… But in that brief moment, Olivia made me feel like I could be Pia even just for a second, to relax my shoulders and breathe. And that’s the way it has always been for me since she became my roommate. Thank you @theoliviajordan❤️ for being so warm and welcoming. She really is a true representation of a Miss USA 👑🇺🇸 @missusa#BeyondTheBeauty.”
3. Jordan finished second at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant but for Wurtzbach, she could be a winner. Pia Wurtzbach earlier said if she were one of the judges in the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, she’d definitely pick Jordan as the winner, Tempo reported.
4. Wurtzbach was grateful to Jordan for coming to the Philippines. The American beauty was one of the judges in the 2016 Bb. Pilipinas beauty contest. Wurtzbach invited her BFF to visit the country once again and promised to bring her to Boracay with 2013 Miss World Megan Young.
“Liv, I know it was a short trip, but thank you so much for coming with me to the Philippines! I’m so glad everybody gave you a warm welcome. I hope you enjoyed the pageant. And next time we definitely have to hit the beach when our schedules aren’t so hectic anymore. I promise you that! First stop, Boracay! @missusa and let’s steal @meganbata?” she wrote on IG.
5. In March, Pia Wurtzbach and Jordan shared on the Miss Universe Facebook live chat how they painted Easter eggs. The two beauty queens answered questions from their followers while teasing each other, Rappler wrote.
