Miss World 1993 2nd princess Ruffa Gutierrez is just one of the many people who were disappointed with the result of this year�s Bb. Pilipinas pageant, specifically to Janina San Miguel winning the Bb. Pilipinas World title. Janina became the talk of the town after her infamous response in the question and answer portion of the pageant last Saturday night.
Janina San Miguel won 2 special awards last Saturday - the coveted Best in Swimsuit and Best in Long Gown. But her question and answer was a disaster. Other girls who are equally stunning but gave brilliant answers didn�t win any title.
Danielle Castano, the winner of Miss Photogenic award, was the crowd favorite and the choice of pageant experts to represent us in Miss Universe but she ended up first-runner up only.
We haven�t placed in Miss Universe since 1999 when Miriam Quiambao was able to grab the first runner-up honors. With the results of this year�s Bb. Pilipinas, experts believe the drought will continue.
Relive the moment, here�s Showbiz Central�s take:
Quoting Critical Beauties:
[If you think Miss South Carolina Teen USA Laurie Upton�s geography-related answer was dumb, wait �til you watch and listen to Janina San Miguel�s response to her interview question, �What role did your family play with you as candidate to Binibining Pilipinas?� The Philippines boasts as the third-largest English-speaking country in the world (after USA and Britain), but after hearing how some of these girls butcher the English language, not to mention their inability to listen to the question, it makes you wonder how these girls even made it past the fifth grade?]
