Despite failing to advance to the top 21 of Miss Universe 2020, Romania’s Bianca Lorena Tirsin celebrated with her fellow candidates at the backstage during the pageant.
She called them “winners.”
“Maybe we are not in the top 21 but we are winners,” Bianca said in an Instagram video.
“And you, universe will hear of us— of each and every one of us, because we want to leave something behind of us. And you will hear our names really loud and clear,” she added.
Her fellow Miss Universe bets could be heard cheering on the background.
Miss Universe Canada Nova Stevens, who earlier made headlines after she revealed that she received racist remarks, chimed in the cheer and started singing Beyonce’s “Run the World (Girls).”
Fellow candidates in the video also responded to the song in unison as Nova leads.
Bianca tagged 11 Miss Universe bets who were part of the video.
