Editor's Note: Here's a piece we put together about Pia Wurtzbach right after she won the right to represent our country at Miss Universe 2015. Somehow we always knew this girl was going to do great things.
The saying "third time's the charm" holds true for newly-crowed Binibining Pilipinas-Universe winner Pia Wurtzbach.

After coming short in her first two tries (she was the first runner-up in 2013 and made the Top 15 last year), the 25-year-old beauty queen from Cagayan De Oro finally got the much coveted sash and crown at last night's Grand Coronation at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Of course, a grand achievement like this deserves a selfie:
Completing this year's Bb. Pilipinas 2015 batch of winners are: Bb. Pilipinas-International Janicel Lubina, Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental Christi McGarry, Bb. Pilipinas-Supranational Rogelie Catacutan, and Bb. Pilipinas-Tourism Ann Lorraine Colis.
We have plenty of time to introduce you to these other pretty ladies; but for now we train our spotlight on Pia, who's set to continue our amazing track record in the Miss Universe pageant (and hopefully finally bring that damn crown home). Scroll down to learn more about this Filipino-German beauty!
As we've mentioned, Pia is a third-time contestant, which isn't really that uncommon. It also took last year's Bb. Pilipinas - Universe, MJ Lastimosa, three tries before finally bagging the right to represent us.

Aside from her pursuing her burning desire to champion the Filipino beauty to the world, Pia is also a professional model...
...and a beauty writer for Inquirer Lifestyle! Say, Pia, can we get you as a contributor, too?
It looks like she also drives buses on the side. We kid! We kid! #BastaDriverSweetLover
We don't want to brag, but we're not really shocked she won—we chose her as one of our Bikini Bets a couple of months ago.
No wonder she aced the Q&A portion, she practiced hard the night before!
Back home after a long day of Bb activities. Ready for bed. Let’s do an hour of Q&A before I hit the sack. Ask me anything! ????— Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (@PiaWurtzbach) March 10, 2015
But don't let all the sophistication fool you; if the situations asks for it, she still knows how to push her #swag button on.
She's also an expert at taking teasing selfies! Damn! #FacePaLangYan #Partida
But just like the rest of us, she also has a normal-looking graduation photo.
Based on her Instagram posts, we can tell that she's not a picky eater.
She gets to attend the best parties! #Jealous #SamaKami
Hopefully, next time she posts something like these, it'll be taken from an FHM cam!
Congratulations again, Pia!
We know it's a tad early, but in behalf of the whole FHM Nation, we wish you all the luck at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant! Get us over the hump, girl!
