Laguna's pride Ariella Arida wins Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2013

(UPDATE) Ariella Arida is crowned Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2013.

The stunning lady who hails from Laguna bested 49 other contestants during the coronation night held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sunday night, April 14. The 24-year-old winner is a Chemistry graduate from UP Los Baños.

Arielle impressed  judges during the Q & A portion with her answer on what  women can teach men.
 
"One lesson in life that women can teach men is being sensitive. Men are more logical when it comes to decisions. They're rational and straightforward. Unlike women, we use our hearts and we tend to get emotional when we make our decisions. Sensitivity is something that we women can teach to men," she said.
