When you’re a beauty queen, every moment may feel like a red carpet event. But not for Miss Universe 2022 R’Bonney Gabriel.

This Fil-Am beauty queen shocked fans by hopping on a jeepney ride through the bustling streets of Manila.

In an Instagram post, R’Bonney shared her daring adventure aboard the iconic “King of the Road” complete with a surprise bump on the head to make the experience extra memorable.

“When you’re terrified there’s no seatbelt in the jeepney and you don’t know what’s your stop so you just accept your fate,” she said in her post.

Her jeepney ride is just the latest in a series of Pinoy experiences for the beauty queen during her vacation in her father’s homeland.
