Rule 5 Saturday - Representing Us in the Multiverse - Catriona Gray

I did a couple of posts recently on the Miss Universe contest in the recent past. I was so happy when they continued with tradition, and picked a woman again, I decided to follow up with the winner for this weeks Rule 5 post. This year, it was Catriona Gray, who represented the Philippines, although good cases could be made for her representing Australia, or even Scotland.
Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray (born 6 January 1994) is an Australian-Filipino television host, singer, model, stage actress, and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe 2018. She is the fourth Filipino to win the pageant. Previously, Gray was crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2018 and Miss World Philippines 2016. Gray also competed in Miss World 2016, placing as a Top 5 finalist.
 Busy girl. Another fine example of hybrid vigor.
Gray was born in Cairns, Queensland to a Scottish-born Australian father, Ian Gray, from Fraserburgh, and a Filipino mother, Normita Ragas Magnayon, from Oas, Albay. Gray is reportedly named after her paternal grandmother, Catherine Gray (née Ross), an immigrant to Western Australia from Scotland in 1952.
While the idea that the winner of the  contest is the best in the Universe is a bit of a stretch, I would be more than happy with Catriona representing us against the best of the multiverse.
