Miss Philippines 2010 Answer at Miss Universe 2010 Pageant
Miss Philippines 2010 Answer at Miss Universe 2010 Pageant – Although Miss Philippines has come under fire after saying that she has never made a major mistake during the Miss Universe competition, she later explained that she does not believe that she spoke in error. The 22 year old Miss Philippines was favored to win the pageant, but ended up placing fifth after not coming up with a viable answer to the question.
“What is one major mistake you’ve made?” she was asked by the judge.
The answer seemed to be out of place, and it is common knowledge that her response is not the kind of answer that the judges are looking for. It was even more odd, that after she gave her unusual answer, she thanked the judges for asking her such a “great question.”
Previous to giving her unexpected answer, she had expertly walked across the stage wearing high heels and a bikini, making her the favorite to win the contest. The question is commonplace in the competition, as well as in job interviews, and many people, including President Bush have struggled to answer the question with grace.
“I wish you would have given me this written question ahead of time,” Bush once said in an interview.
You would think that if she was in a position to win Miss Universe, that she would have a well-thought out answer prepared for the question. The ability to admit mistakes and show how you turned them into a lesson is something that is looked highly upon, both in the competition, and in life in general.
