I don’t know whether to really treat this as a scandal or such, but given the definition of “scandal = a disgraceful event” I guess it falls right in place.
This youtube video link was passed around the office a while earlier and so we watched. I am not that updated with events happening here at our country especially beauty pageants so I did not know this until now.
The video showed a girl named Janina San Miguel, a Binibining Pilipinas grand winner with an awfully bad English. She was 17 years old so you might be thinking that she is still young that is why she messed up. But I guess she could have answered in Tagalog instead of making an idiot of herself. Hehe… Don’t get me wrong, I am no excuse myself, I have had my shares of bad English. The thing is, she screwed up big, she didn’t mentioned anything related to the question but instead laugh which made many people angry, confused and bitter about she winning the title for this year.
Some said she was a beauty without brains because she got 2 other titles (best in long gown and bikini) along with the crown.
For me she was not really beautiful but I must say who am I to speak about beauty… Maybe the question and answer portion wasn’t enough of a percentage to tackle her down from winning the crown. For example, she might have had zero on the Q&A but got the other 80% perfectly.
But still… she made a pretty bad impression… What would the Koreans say? hehe..
::: Here is an excerpt of the youtube video conversation with Paolo Bediones as the host :::
Paolo Bediones: Janina, how are you?
Janina San Miguel: I’m fine.
Paolo Bediones: Alright, so you won two of the major awards – Best in Long Gown, Best in Swimsuit, do you feel any pressure right now?
Janina San Miguel: No, I don’t feel any pressure right now.
Paolo Bediones: Confident! Alright! Please choose a name of the judge.
Paolo Bediones: We have Miss Vivienne Tan.
Vivienne Tan: Good Evening.
Janina San Miguel: Good Evening.
Vivienne Tan: The question is, what role did your family play to you as candidate to Binibining Pilinas?
Janina San Miguel: Well, my family’s role for me is so important b’coz there was the wa- they’re, they was the one who’s… very… Hahahaha… Oh I’m so sorry, Ahhmm… My pamily… My family… Oh my god… I’m… Ok, I’m so sorry… I… I told you that I’m so confident… Eto, Ahhmm, Wait… Hahahaha, Ahmmm, Sorry guys because this was really my first pageant ever b’coz I’m only 17 years old and ahahaha I, I did not expect that I came from, I came from one of the top 10. Hmmm, so… but I said that my family is the most important persons in my life. Thank you.
