Fan-favorite Miss Philippines Universe Shamcey Suspsup placed third runner-up in the Miss Universe competitions, joining the entourage of Miss Universe 2011, Miss Angola Leila Lopes.

Supsup, an alumna of the University of the Philippines whose family hails from General Santos City, made it to the Top 5 of the Miss Universe 2011 competitions and, by the end of the final round, she had topped the live online voting, emerging as the global fan-favorite of the last women standing.

“She’s got a million-watt smile,” Miss Universe commentators said of Supsup, an architect. “And yet she’s very humble.” Supsup said she dreams of opening her own architectural firm, one that can help promote eco-friendly designs and help save the Earth.

Fourth runner-up was Miss China. Miss Brazil was second runner up, and Ukraine was first funner-up to Miss Angola.
