She had what it took to bring home the country's first ever title in Reina Hispanoamericana, a Latina-dominated international pageant, back in 2017.

And it looks like beauty queen and actress Teresita "Winwyn" Marquez also has the makings of a Miss Universe, if the word of one of the previous Filipina winners is anything to go by.

Last Thursday, Marquez posted a fierce photo of her on Instagram with the caption: "May all of your vibes say: I GOT THIS."

This drew hundreds of comments from her fans, urging her to push through with her reported plans to join the upcoming Binibining Pilipinas pageant, in a bid to win Miss Universe Philippines.

Among these comments, as screencaptured by Pep, was an apparent encouragement from Pia Wurtzbach, who described her as "Miss Universe material."

Reacting to the praise, Marquez said that she had a "mini-heart attack" when she read it.

It remains unclear whether Marquez, who has a movie coming out soon, is joining this year's Binibining Pilipinas.

She talked to Pep about it, admitting that she's still unsure due to her other commitments. "Maraming pumapasok na projects ...and I'm really not sure what to do yet."
