Having braved BPCI controversy on account of her late-registered Birth Certificate and then overcoming it to recover her beauty crown in time, MVRaj could have answered WBaldwin confidently:
“The biggest mistake I may have ever made was omitting the inelegance of my complicated roots when I competed for the Binibining Pilipinas beauty crown. I corrected the mistake by personally declaring a sad truth about my humble international beginnings. Happily, doing the right thing when it became due worked things out wonderfully and so, thank you so much to my family for all the love and support, for here I am tonight with audacity of hope to try to win as Miss Universe 2010!”
Considering that exotic and regal MVRaj was No.3 in swimsuit and No. 5 in gown, do you think it would have made a different result?
Judges are not really interested in lengthy answers. Like an ad campaign, they want short, to the point that delivers a punch. I would have answered it this way: I would have sang Frank Sinatra’s MY WAY “regrets, I have a few, but then again, too few to mention.” Thank you ladies and gentlemen.
I’d like to see that, Hercy: a beauty pageant question answered with a song. 😆
Or a short poem, like haiku, anything that calls attention and separates you from the usual boring responses. Think outside the box!
Beauty queens back home need to be honed to think fast on their feet. Same thing happened to another Bicolana, Miriam (forgot her last name) who fumbled her response to the question of a beauty queen found pregnant. The eventual winner was an African who answered that every pregnancy is a gift. Bang, she won the crown, and Miriam came home as 1st runner-up.
