MANILA, Philippines — In time for the arrival of Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in the Philippines on Tuesday, award-winning Filipino actor and TV host Paolo Ballesteros has made himself look like the new queen from South Africa.
 
In his latest Instagram post, Paolo pays homage to the new Miss Universe titleholder, who is in the Philippines together with Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere of France and other Miss Universe finalists and candidates for a promotional tour of the Philippines sponsored by the Department of Tourism.

Paolo captioned the post as “Demi-Sorya from South Africa!” — a combination of Demi-Leigh and a famous shopping center in Manila, Divisoria.

Ballesteros has garnered millions of social media followers and has been praised by Hollywood actresses like "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot, Lena Headey of “Game of Thrones” and supermodel Gigi Hadid for his amazing makeup impersonations of stars like Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Tyra Banks and Wonder Woman.

Last year, for his film “Die Beautiful,” Paolo reaped many awards, including Best Actor at the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival, which he received dressed like Angelina Jolie.

For the red carpet premiere of his latest film “Barbie D’ Wonder Beki,” Paolo came as a human Barbie doll, with co-star Ejay Falcon as “Ken.”
