Both the belle of the ball and the world-renowned wax history institution announced Monday, January 6 that Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray would have her own Madame Tussauds wax figure shortly. Catriona Gray, a Filipina model, will get her own Madame Tussauds wax statue, Pariwiki Pinoy Teleserye.
Catriona confirmed the story on Instagram, showing photos of herself holding a false eyeball – presumably as she chose which will be used on the wax figure. Catriona, who was dispatched to Thailand in December 2018, stated, “Stay tuned.”
Madame Tussauds Singapore announced to the media that Catriona’s wax figure will be dressed in a replica of Mak Tumang’s now-famous “magma” attire. Catriona donned the red costume when she was delegated, which drew inspiration from the Mayon Volcano.

According to Susan Ang, Madame Tussauds Asia Regional Manager, the Catriona wax figure would first be shown in Madame Tussauds Singapore in 2020 before being moved to Madame Tussauds Bangkok and Hong Kong.
“The [Philippine] market continues to be likely the most established and has been critical to our Asian attractions, and we’ve seen an increase in visitors to Madame Tussauds in Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Singapore.” “We recognise that having Catriona’s wax figure will be a huge draw and set the stage for her admirers to get up close and personal with her in 2020,” she said in a statement.
In Manila, the wax figure will make its premiere.
Catriona is the most recent Filipino to have a wax figure created by Madame Tussauds. The wax statue of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach was unveiled in Manila in 2019 before being sent to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. Manny Pacquiao, the boxing champion and congressman, is due to have his Madame Tussauds Hong Kong also has its own wax figure.
