Filipinos really love pageants, especially when Miss Catriona Gray won the 2018 Miss Universe crown. During the competition, the lava walk of Miss Catriona captured the attention of viewers worldwide.
Now, her lava walk is the most famous ramp strut in pageant competitions. But one candidate in a gay pageant put her own twist while doing Catriona’s slow-mo turn.
A Twitter user, Kevin Marco, shared a video clip of Fab Antonette’s ramp walk with the caption, “Catriona Gray is cancelled,” during the Miss Gay Universe 2019 in Koronadal City. The video clip had already garnered 1.1 million views and 83 thousand likes.

20-year-old Anton Jann Faeldonia-Labiang, known as Fab Antonette Faeldonia-Labiang, was one among the nine contestants of Miss Gay Universe 2019 in Koronadal City.
In an interview with Dailypedia via Twitter message, she said that she really had planned and practiced that walk for the competition.
The idea of her newest walk is a combination of her old-style ramp walk and the trending Catriona Gray lava walk. She thought of using the “double turn,” which he started when she joined a pageant in school. Since then, it has been used by pageant enthusiasts.

Fab Antonette wanted to upgrade her ramp style, so she thought of combinimg her double turn with Catriona’s slow-mo turn, then he comes up with Catriona’s slow-mo turn and her fast double turn.
She really thought about it carefully, making sure that she would not stumble while performing her newest ramp walk.
“Napag isipan kong mag launch ng bagong rampa/lakad after na ginamit ng mga ibang pageant enthusiast yung “double turn” ko na ni-launch din nung nagpageant ako sa school namin sa MSU. Tapos nung medyo gasgas na ang ganung lakad, in-upgrade ko na sya. Hahaha, combined Catriona’s slowmo turn and fast forward na double turn ang ginawa ko. Pinag iisipan ko kasi sya ng mabuti kung maari ba syang ma-perform na hindi ako sesemplang.”
Thank you so much guys!! 'Til nex time 😘 God bless us all 🙏 pic.twitter.com/QAAI7ueUfC
