Major, Major Problem
I just watched the live streaming video coverage of Miss Universe 2010 earlier and I was thrilled and happy to see that Miss Philippines was included in the Top 5 finalists.
There were many Filipinos fans who showed their support for Miss Philippines but her answer for the Q and A portion was not that good enough.
Miss Philippines Venus Raj: What is one big mistake you've made and what did you do to make it right?
Her Answer: In my 22 years of existence, there is nothing major, major problem that I have done in my life. Because I am very confident with my family and the love they are giving to me. So thank you so much.
I think it would better if she answered like this:
"Maybe my biggest mistake is when I almost surrendered to fight for my crown as BB. Pilipinas Universe after they dethroned me for my title.. but thanks to my Best friend, Melody Gersbach who died last August 21, 2010 on car accident for pushing me and believing in me that I can take the crown of Miss Universe 2010, and this is it.. I'm closer to that title.. Thank you very much!
Miss Philippines may have failed to bring the much-coveted crown but certainly her presence in the event made a lot of difference in terms of our self worth. In times when the world watched how a Filipino managed to take the lives of innocent people during the stand-off in Manila yesterday, certainly Miss Venus Raj brought us something to celebrate and be proud of...Congratulations Venus! We are proud of you!
