On December 14, Twitter user Earle Ceo Abrenica tagged Banks on his tweet about Gray’s slow-mo walk.
“She squeezed every second of that walk and that spotted spin, @tyrabanks will be proud!”
Banks replied, “I mean…Pinoy Power to the Max!!!”
Aside from Gray, Banks also noticed Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo-Wurtzbach’s smize.
“Dang, girl. You betta #SMIZE, @PiaWurtzbach for the win, girl! #MissUniverse2015 #MissPhilippines #Pinoy.”
