Before the event, Sen was interviewed by news broadcaster Jessica Soho on her show Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.

But Sen wasn't aware of the warm surprise she was in for. After the interview, Soho introduced her to four Filipinas, all born in 1994, the same year Sen won the Miss Universe title. All the four women were named Sushmita.

And Sen was SHOOK to meet all these women who were named after her.

She was overwhelmed upon learning that one of the women was named after Sen's full name.

Before dispersing, all the Sushmitas got together to recreate Sen's iconic Miss Universe winner face and it was perfect.
