The sight of Marian Rivera among the female panel for the preliminary round of Miss Universe 2021 was breathtaking.

As the preliminary phase of the competition got underway on Saturday morning, Marian took to Instagram to post a snapshot of herself looking stunning in a black gown with the other female judges (Philippine time).

Indian actress and Miss Universe runner-up Urvashi Rautela was Marian’s companion during the Miss Universe pageant.

With her new discovered companion, she had plenty of laughs and a bit of dancing.

It was also revealed that Marian Rivera had taught Urvashi how to dance to “Sabay-sabay Tayo” in the days leading up to the preliminary round.

Marian Rivera was selected to serve on the selection panel for the 70th Miss Universe competition and travelled to Israel on Monday.

She is anticipated to participate in a number of pageant events up to the crowning of a new queen on December 12.

Beatrice Gomez, the reigning Miss Universe Philippines, is a contender for the title.
