We understand the excitement of voting for your favorite Miss Universe candidate. So excited that sometimes you mistakenly tag the first “Rachel Peters” you see on Twitter. In this case, it did happen but “the other Rachel” had the best reaction through all of them.
Animator Rachel Peters first clarified to everyone that she’s not the Philippines’ bet. “But it’s totally cool that you saw my avatar and thought I could be,” she wrote.
Hey, twitter folks! I'm actually still not Miss Universe Rachel Peters. But it's totally cool that you saw my avatar and thought I could be.
As the Twitter voting started, Rachel thanked the fans that were still tweeting her for giving her motivation to work on her project. Because that’s how everyone should utilize the “Win the crown” messages.
I'm enjoying the 20-tweets-per-hour from the entire population of the Philippines telling me to WIN IT every day. I know it's meant for Miss Universe, but I'm using it as personal inspiration. I'm going to write my script today and I'm going to WIN IT!
She still questioned why Filipinos thought she was a beauty queen, considering her bio and photo, but she’s embracing the title “Miss Alternate Universe.” She even gave our Rachel a vote and considered moving to the Philippines.
I've gained a solid 50 twitter followers due to this whole #MissUniverse2017 misunderstanding, so that's not bad… I just wish they'd actually read my tweets. Or, you know, my bio. Or perhaps look at my face.
To be fair, Rachel Peters is a pretty common name. Plus, there are several fan accounts dedicated to the beauty queen. So it’s okay, other Rachel! The Miss Universe pageant will end in a few hours, hence, the tweets will stop too. (Hopefully.)
For those who are wondering, the real Rachel’s Twitter account is @rachelpetersx. Go send her some love!
