Ms. U 2011

Bukod sa mabilis na reaction ko na kahawig ni Jimmy Bondoc nang makita ko noon sa news sa tv ang boyfriend ni Shamcey, pagkasabing pagkasabi pa lang ni Shamcey ng “Thank you” pagkatapos niyang sagutin ang tanong na “Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love, why or why not?’’, alam ko nang winner na siya.

3rd runner up si Shamcey.  Panalo pa din!

Tanggap ko naman ang resulta pero sa tingin ko mas ok siguro kung iisang tanong na lang ang ginamit, para mas exciting ang laban.  ‘Yung nakaheadphones ‘yung mga contestant para kunwari ‘di marinig ang sagot ng nauna sa kanila? Ganun ang old school na beauty pageant, ‘di ba?

O hindi kaya, pantay pantay na lang lahat ng tanong, tipong matatackle ang social issues para mapaisip ng mabuti ang contestants, para mapatunayan talaga nilang hindi lang sila magiging ambassador ng kagandahan at kaseksihan.  Higit sa lahat, tanggalin na sana ‘yang “if”, para maging imperative ang laman ng tanong, para mapwersa ang sasagot na magpakatotoo at hindi maging tipikal na beauty queen.

1.   If you could trade lives with anyone in history, who whould it be and why? 

Trade lives with anyone in history, who would it be? What will you do to exceed his/her contributions to the world and why?

2.  Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why and why not?

You chose to change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love who after 2 years of marriage left you, how will you explain your decision to sacrifice your own faith to your daughter who wants to do the same thing at age 13?

3.  Nude beaches are common in some parts of the world. Is public nudity appropriate or inappropriate and why?

Nude beaches are common in some parts of the world. Is public nudity appropriate or inappropriate and why? If you think it is inappropriate, what can you say regarding the greater audience that  the uncensored information on the internet cater to? (Pag appropriate ang sagot, walang follow up)

4.  What would you do to avoid fighting a war that you did not agree with it?

You are fighting a war that you did not agree with, convince yourself that you have to go on.  What will you tell yourself?

5.   If you could change one of your physical characteristics, which one would it be and why?

Change the judging criteria to your advantage.  State the changes made.  (Kahit hindi na mag-explain) (Ok, fine, hindi ‘to question, pero basta ‘yan na ‘yun, lagyan na lang ng rising intonation ng magtatanong)

Dahil mabait ako, unlimited ang oras ng pagsagot.  Pwede ang interpreter, pero dalawa.  ‘Yung isa, dala nung mismong contestant at tatayo sa stage kasama niya at ng host.  ‘Yung isa, pinili ng mismong committee ng pageant, nasa ibang room siya at hindi maririnig ang sasabihin nung isang interpreter.  Mauunang magsalita ang interpreter na baon ng contestant, susunod ang in-house interpreter.  Maririnig ng lahat ang sasabihin ng parehong interpreter.  Saka papalakpak ang audience, at magsoscore ang judges.  Wala lang, para exciting at kontrobersyal.

Pero seryoso, nakakaproud si Shamcey Supsup.  At sigurado ako na proud na proud ang buong Pilipinas sa kanya.

Congratulations sa ating lahat.  Ang sarap maging Pilipino!

P.S.  Salamat sa twitter dahil mas sumaya ang bawat moment ng Miss U 2011 dahil sa mga tweets ng mga tao.  Buti na lang nakakatuwang magcomment ang mga Pilipino pagdating sa maraming bagay, lalo na kapag beauty pageants ang usapan.  Kung wala kang twitter, bakit??? ‘Yun lang.

P.P.S.  Salamat din sa boyfriend ni Shamcey.  Buti na lang dumating na siya sa buhay ni Shamcey, dahil kung hindi, baka maging “apple of the eye” si Shamcey ni Mr. President.
