Ariella Arida shares quirk: I glue my ears
MANILA – Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ariella Arida opened up about one of her quirks in a television interview on Monday.
On the ANC program “Headstart,” Arida shared that she sometimes glues her ears, which she described as “bigger than usual.”
“I’m always covering them,” she said. “Actually, I’m using Mighty Bond to glue my ears.”
“I think mine is bigger than the usual, especially when I ponytail my hair. It’s really showing so I have to glue it.”
Despite this, Arida said she is happy with her natural features. The beauty queen said her losses in previous pageants have made her embrace her insecurities.
“I have lots of insecurities but you know, after all the training… I’ve embraced all of my insecurities. And that’s the best thing I’ve learned,” she said.
To prepare for the Miss Universe pageant in Russia on November 9, Arida has been working out for as much as six hours a day.
She has also been following a strict no-carbohydrate diet.
