[baguhin | baguhin ang wikitext]

Bilang Miss Texas USA, si Gabriel ang kumatawan sa Texas sa Miss USA 2022.[12] Naganap ang Miss USA 2022 pageant sa Grand Sierra Resort sa Reno, Nevada noong 3 Oktubre 2022.[13] Mula sa limampu't-isang kandidata, napabilang si Gabriel sa Top 16 na sumabak first impressions, at sa Top 12 na sumabak sa swimsuit at evening gown competition.

Pagkatapos ng evening gown competition, napabilang si Gabriel bilang isa sa limang pinalista na lumahok sa question and answer round. Itinanong ni Soo Yeon Lee kay Gabriel: "Global studies indicate that women are increasingly seen as more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. You are asked to create a task force to help address this issue, what is your first priority?", kung saan ipinarating niya:

"Yes, well I think there [are] ways we can implement, addressing climate change within our careers or our lifestyle. It's as easy as adding a recycle bin to your house, everybody can do that, or being creative in ways you can also implement it in your job. I am a fashion designer, I actually made the outfit I'm wearing, and I upcycle pieces and recycle different clothing to be more sustainable in my industry because I feel it's like my duty. So I think that's something we can all look for ways in our certain industries or [in] our homes to be sustainable as well."

Pagkatapos ng kompetisyon, kinoronahan ni Elle Smith si Gabriel bilang Miss USA 2022.[14] Matapos makoronahan bilang Miss USA, lumitaw ang mga alegasyon na ang kumpetisyon ay nilinlang para manalo si Gabriel. Sinasabing naglakbay si Gabriel sa Nizuc Resort and Spa sa Cancún ilang linggo matapos makoronahan si Gabriel bilang Miss Texas USA at nakapag-shoot ng mga promotional material, na na-post ng Instagram account ng resort nang wala pang dalawampu't-apat na oras pagkatapos ng kompetisyon.[15] Isa ang Nizuc sa mga isponsor ng Miss USA noong naging national director ng Miss USA at Miss Teen USA si Miss USA 2008 Crystle Stewart noong taong 2020. Parehas na hindi nakadalo sa retreat ng mga kandidata ng Miss USA 2022 sa Cancún sina Gabriel at Miss Colorado USA 2022 Alexis Glover dahil hindi pa nakokoronahan ang dalawa nang maganap ang nasabing retreat.[16] Sa isang panayam ng E! News, pinabulaanan ni Gabriel ang mga haka-hakang may daya ang kompetisyon.[17]

Miss Universe 2022

[baguhin | baguhin ang wikitext]

Bilang Miss USA 2022, si Gabriel ang kumatawan sa Indiya sa Miss Universe 2022. Ang kompetisyon ay ginanap noong 14 Enero 2023 sa New Orleans, Louisiana sa Estados Unidos.[18][19] Mula sa walumpu't-tatlong kalahok, napabilang si Gabriel sa Top 16 na sumabak sa swimsuit competition at sa evening gown competition.[20] Sinuot ni Gabriel para sa evening gown competition ang isang itim na deep neckline shoulder gown na dinisenyo ni Rian Fernandez, isang taga-disenyong Pilipino.[21]

Pagkatapos ng evening gown competition, napabilang si Gabriel sa limang pinalista na lalahok sa question and answer round. Ang tinanong sa kanya ay "Miss Universe recently made an inclusive change allowing mothers and married women to compete this year. What's another change you'd like to see and why?", kung saan ipinarating niya:[22]

"For me, I would like to see an age increase because I am 28 years old and that is the oldest age to compete. And I think it's a beautiful thing. My favorite quote is, ‘If not now then when.’ Because as a woman, I believe age does not define us. It's not tomorrow, it's not yesterday, but it's now. The time is now that you can go after what you like."

Pagkatapos ng question and answer round, napabilang si Gabriel sa tatlong pinalista na lalahok sa final question round. Ang tinanong sa kanya ay “If you win Miss Universe, how would you work to demonstrate this as an empowering and progressive organization?”, kung saan ipinarating niya:[23]

"Well, I would use it to be a transformational leader. As a very passionate designer, I’ve been sewing for 13 years, I use fashion as a force for good. In my industry, I’m cutting down on pollution through recycling materials when I make my clothing. I teach sewing classes to women that have survived from human trafficking and domestic violence. And I say that because it is so important to invest in others, invest in our community and use your unique talent to make a difference. We all gave something special, and when we plant those seeds to other people in our life, we transform them and we use that as a vehicle for change."

Pagkatapos ng kompetisyon, kinoronahan ni Harnaaz Sandhu ng Indiya si Gabriel bilang Miss Universe 2022. Si Gabriel ang kauna-unahang Miss USA na may lahing Pilipino, ikasiyam na Amerikana, at ang pinakamatandang nanalo bilang Miss Universe sa edad na dalawampu't-siyam.[24] Siya rin ang ikalimang Miss Universe na may kaangkanang Pilipino.[25]
