MANILA, Philippines -  Shamcey Supsup has finally revealed who coined the name for her trademark strut during the recent Miss Universe pageant.

In an exclusive interview with Korina Sanchez on "TV Patrol" Friday, Supsup gave the credit for the phrase "tsunami walk" to one of her friends.

Explaining the move itself,  Supsup said, “It was like a mix of all the training that I had.”

“But the term came from a friend, a Spanish friend, and he doesn’t know how to speak English and ‘yun ang lagi niyang sinasabi, ‘walk like a tsunami,’” she said.

According to Supsup, the ‘tsunami walk’ is a way of describing her strut down the pageant stage that sought to “blow away” the judges.

Supsup also shared that her own recipe for success.

In order to be successful, she said, “I think you have to be disciplined, determined, I think you have to set your goals and set them high.”
