For a first time candidate, Vickie Rushton didn’t do so bad after she finished 1st-runner up in this year’s Binibining Pilipinas. Through an Instagram post, she extended her gratitude to everyone who supported her all the way in the competition, specifically her celebrity beau Jason Abalos.
Apparently, it was her boyfriend who encouraged her to join the beauty pageant, something that she couldn’t be more thankful for.
“Thank you for the sacrifices. I am grateful for your support throughout this journey. Thank you for lifting me up and for listening when I feel like I need to pour my heart out. I love you baba!”
The feeling was definitely mutual for Jason who fawned all over his girlfriend after her Binibining Pilipinas stint. He took to Instagram to say how proud he was of her victory, citing that she surprised him with her performance in the beauty pageant.
He was quoted as saying:
“Simula pa lang #binibini 1 na ang bet ko sa Binibining Pilipinas 2018. Congrats baba, so proud of you. Ang galing mo, nagulat ako na ganoon ka pala kapag nasa stage na, sobrang nakakakaba.”
It wasn’t only Vickie whom “The One That Got Away” actor praised in his caption, however, but also the rest of this year’s contestants.
“Hindi madali ang training na pinagdaanan ninyong lahat ng ilang buwan, lahat kayo deserving sa crown pero ganon talaga konti lang ang pwede ibigay [smile emoji] sa mga nanalo nasa inyo suporta namin, laban Pilipino. Kain na tayo baba haha.”
But that wasn’t all. When asked by a fan if Vickie received a crown, Jason referred to his sweetheart as “Jason’s Queen“.
Talk about love and support! #relationship goals indeed!
