Former Miss Universe to be first Filipina to get Madame Tussauds statue

Former Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach, will become the first Filipina to have a wax statue at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.

“When I found out, I was so excited. I couldn't believe it! In my head, this is something that only happens to big stars,” Wurtzbach told Philippines local daily, Rappler.

The statue will be unveiled in early 2019.

Madame Tussauds first opened in London and has since opened several museums all over the world, housing wax figures of prominent historical figures and contemporary celebrities.
