- Pia Wurtzbach became emotional during Miss USA 2016 coronation night
- She shared a touching farewell message for her good friend Miss USA 2015 Olivia Jordan
- The two of them met during the Miss Universe 2015 beauty pageant
Without a doubt, reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach and Miss Universe 2015 second runner-up Olivia Jordan became closer in the months they’ve spent together as housemates in New York City.
As Jordan passed the Miss USA crown to Deshauna Barber from the District of Columbia last Sunday, June 5, Wurtzbach became emotional.
On her Instagram account, the Filipina-German beauty queen shared her photo with Jordan and Miss Teen U.S.A. 2015 Katherine Haik.
She thanked Jordan and recalled some of the things the American beauty queen did for her.
She wrote: “Thank you, liv. After you did your final walk I saw you come up to me and Katherine while holding your crown. Did you know that I’ve never seen you wearing it in person?.. But there we were, back on the same stage and exact same spot as last year. You’ve been so gracious and supportive. You even flew to the Philippines to be a judge and watch me pass on my Miss Philippines crown. Most of all thank you for making me feel like I wasn’t alone during my down moments. Deshauna will do amazing things, I’m so sure of it. But fate bonded us last year and I’ll never forget your kindness. I miss you already!”
According to an article published by Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) , Jordan moved out of the New York City apartment she shared with Wurtzbach six days before the Miss USA pageant.
Wurtzbach expressed in a previous Instagram post that she hates walking past the room that Jordan occupied in the apartment with the door wide open and it’s completely empty inside.
She promised Jordan she’ll take her to all the nice islands in the Philippines someday.
