Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo sampled her walk ahead of the prestigious pageant to be held tentatively in the second quarter of 2021.
In a brief clip released by the official page of Miss Universe Philippines, Rabiya is seen strutting her way to the country’s fifth Miss Universe crown.
Pageant enthusiasts say she’s holding back from showing her final walk.
One Instagram user commented: “Naks nagpipigil pa! Ramdam ko magpapasabog ‘to ng kanyang signature hampas ng balakang.”
Remarked another: “Kinokontrol pa niya lakad niya. ‘Di pa ‘yan bigay todo pero pak na.”
Rabiya’s walk has been dubbed by fans as the “Hala Bira” walk.
Her predecessors’ iconic walks include Catriona Gray’s “Lava Walk,” Pia Wurtzbach’s “Tanim Bala Walk,” Shamcey Supsup’s “Tsunami Walk” and Janine Tugonon’s “Cobra Walk.”
The Miss Universe pageant will reportedly take place in May, but the organizer has yet to release an official confirmation.
