Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, December 3) — Kapuso actress Marian Rivera will be one of the judges for the Miss Universe 2021.

This was confirmed by her network GMA in a social media post, which she shared on her Instagram.

"Minsan lang siguro mabigyan ka ng pagkakataon na makabilang sa isang mahalagang okasyon sa mundo… para sa akin isang malaking karangalan siya kaya naman buong puso ko po talaga 'tong tinanggap," Rivera said.

[Translation: It's not often you get the chance to be included in one of the most prestigious events in the world. For me this is a huge honor that is why I accepted it wholeheartedly.]

There had been rumors that the actress would be judging the international pageant after she posted on Instagram a photo of her wearing a red gown, with the caption "Honored. #Grateful," along with the crown and milky way emojis.

For this year's Miss Universe, Philippine bet Beatrice Luigi Gomez will try to take home the crown. She already flew to Israel, where the coronation will be held on Dec. 12.
