Catriona Gray captured in tears during Miss Universe pageant 


Catriona Gray was seen crying backstage during her hosting stint for the Miss Universe pageant.

Her tears were over the touching tribute that the Miss Universe pageant prepared for the late pageant queen, her friend Cheslie Kryst.  

In one of the videos shared by Catriona’s fan site, she was seen applauding while crying backstage.  

“After a moving tribute for our beloved [Cheslie Kryst] under all the lights and pressure of hosting a live show, you weren’t afraid to show this side of you. For that I am grateful, because I know we can all sympathize with the feeling of losing a loved one,” fan account CatrionaUniverse wrote.  

The Miss Universe 2018 was part of the hosting lineup for this year’s Miss Universe competition. On a recent Instagram post, she shared how her experience as a backstage commentator was a dream come true.  

“Achievement unlocked,” she said as she thanked the President and CEO of the Miss Universe organization Paula Shugart and Amy Emmerich for trusting her along with the other hosts Olivia Culpo, Jeannie Mai Jenkins, and Zuri Hall.  

Back in January of 2022, Catriona was one of the pageant queens who expressed their disbelief over Miss USA 2019 Cheslie’s sudden passing.   

“Ches.. I can’t believe the news. Rest in peace angel. The world will miss your light,” she wrote in the caption of an Instagram post.
