Due to prior commitments, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach will unfortunately not be able to attend this year's Miss Universe 2019 Coronation Night.
The former beauty queen-turned-actress confirmed it on her Instagram last November 23, when one netizen asked her if she was able to score some tickets to the pageant, which got sold out after one a hot minute.
According to Pia, she has to film a travel show in Japan on the same day of the pageant. The shoot was already scheduled even before the Miss Universe Organization announced the final date and venue for their Coronation Night. She also revealed that she had been tapped to do backstage hosting duties, but she had to decline.
Nonetheless, we know Pia would surely show her support to our representative Gazini Ganados, who is gunning for a back-to-back win after Catriona Gray was crowned queen last year.

The Miss Universe 2019 Coronation Night will be held this December 9 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Pia's last big screen outing was in the 2018 romantic-drama "My Perfect You" alongside Gerald Anderson.
