Like or Dislike: Janine Tugonon's Answer to Nigel Barker's Question


Nigel Barker: "As an international ambassador, do you believe that speaking English should be a prerequisite to being Miss Universe? Why or why not?"

Janine Tugonon: "For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language. It's being able to influence and inspire other people. So whatever language you have, as long your heart is to serve and you have a strong mind to show people then you can be Miss Universe."

    1. Its not back to Zero. Kung narining mo ang sabi ni andy cohen "the winner will be judged according to d over all impresions of the judges" this evening

    2. It's no longer back to zero. Miss Universe organizers change the rules every now and then. they now consider other things like how the contestants did in the pre-pageant. kaya nga hindi na pinapakita ngayon yung scores ng judges and the fan scores kasi a lot of factors are taken into consideration. baka malito lang ang tao.

  17. Janine made a good answer! judges already have their favorites in preliminaries (personal interviews, PR, Photo ops, insiders info, etc.). Ms U candidates earn points and get the attention of judges by then. it's not only the q.a in the finals that matters but the whole package of a candidate. congratulations to all the candidates especially to Ms Philippines!

    anyway, there's another next time.

    1. Iyan din ang naiisip ko kung bakit hindi siya ang nanalo. although magaling ang sagot niya, hindi niya ni-refer ang tanong. Too much confidence. Sayang in the bag na sana. Parang iyong nangyari kay Venus Raj lang noon. Atin na sana, nawala pa.

    2. hindi rin naman nasagot ni Miss Usa ang tanong niya.. binawi niya sa last na hindi niya raw ni regret. so quits lang

  24. Kering keri ko ang sagot ni baklang Janine, pak na pak kaya, the best answer under that kind of pressure, wag ng magmaganda ang iba, nakakaloka! Miss USA ang pinaka mahina ang dating, naka red na nga wala pa ring dating! Pampalubag nila sa bansa nila kc yung sa Sandyhook Elementary sa Newtown CT, OA naman talaga sa lungkot, devastating naman, pagbigyan, nakakaawa naman sila. Nakakaawa pero di sila maganda...walang magsasabing american guys na mas magaganda mga babae nila sa mga babae sa atin. Punta kayo kahit saang resort ang kasama ng mga Kano, exotic beauties!

  25. Of kors sobrang hanga ako sa sagot ni janine,kumbaga substance wise kanya tlaga,kaso sa delivery medyo sumablay gaya nung kay miriam,habang si USA khit na walang lalim ung sagot eh nadala nya sa delivery,at sguro sa limitadong oras din ng mga hurado mas napansin ung delivery di na nila inintidi ung laman ng mga. sagot nila nwys much better pa rin sana kung atin ung crown

  26. It was an easy question but I'm impressed with Janine kasi di lang siya nagfocus sa english language e. I agree she should have won, but it all comes down to the ugly truth that it's a beauty contest and dun lamang ang USA.

    Nung tinawag Australia akala ko sure na si Janine oh well.

  27. Move on na, mga teh. Nung si Venus Raj, jusme, sabi ng mga Pinoy dapat daw siya ang winner. Last year naman, sabi rin ng mga Pinoy, dinaya ang results. May gumawa pa ng fake letter kuno from Oprah Winfrey. Tapos, decision ni Lea Salonga, inokray-okray nila. Ngayon naman, sourgraping pa rin ang mga Pinoy.

    So, pag di tayo winner, rigged lagi ang results?

  31. Si Janine ang may stunning aura at talagang nag-shine nung gabing yun. Pero nung nakita ko actually si Ms.USA nung evening gown competition, kinutuban ako na kung sakali man, malamang silang dalawa ni Janine ang matira. Siguro kinonsider rin yung mga video interviews and mga TV appearances nila. Si Ms.USA naman, meron siyang very secured, serene and intellectual appeal sa pagkilos niya. It was a close fight pero I must really say that Janine was the brightest of them all sa stage that night. Sayang, pero sana siya na lang ang pinapanalo. Grabe, ang galing ng pagkakahawig niya kay Miriam Quiambao na 1st runner-up rin sa Ms.Universe at pareho pa sila ng pinanggalingang university, UST. Siguro maraming mina ng beauty queens sa university nila kaya dapat dito maghanap ang mga scouts ng Bb.Pilipinas. Very classy Janine...congrats! So happy that you proved all the bashers wrong. Do not worry, you may not have achieved the crown but the mere fact that the entire world believes that you should have won the crown, being able to get the merit of being the most deserving one is far more superior than wearing the crown. Mabuhay ka, Ms.Tugonon.

Parang job interview lang ang Ms. U. Di dahil impressive ang sagot mo sa Q & A, panalo na. Point system nga di ba?

  40. hi, let me play devil's advocate. i think the key words there that we keep missing are "international ambassador." in life usually ambassadors need to have a facility in the language of wherever they're going to be stationed. eg) you can not have an ambassador to china who speaks only filipino. generally people who work in international organizations typically know at least 2-3 languages. this one they added the word interantional for emphasis. how can you influence and inspire if you can't even speak the language. i'm convinced people who aspire to be miss universe should at least show they can speak english

    ReplyDelete



  41. Maybe Janine might have more points to her answered if she started her answered by saying, "as an international ambassador I believe that speaking English is important for Miss Universe, however, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language...etc.

    I believe the keywords they use in the question are INTERNATIONAL AMBASSADOR, I believe that English becomes an International Language.

  42. I like her answer however it sounds rehearsed. I saw her interview in the buzz by Charlene Gonzales. I was turned off. I saw her web interview in Ms Universe and it's too obvious that she doesn't have an excellent command of English as a language. I also saw her interview with USA in fox. Her voice was so soft with no conviction. Then comes Ms universe q&a and I was floored by her answer. It was good but I don't think she could have come up with that unless it has been rehearsed :-)

  44. She had a very nice answer. Kung may naging kulang man dun sa sinagot niya was that aside from explaining why, the question was answerable by yes or no. For me siguro nadale ng konti dun kasi she didn't answer yes or no. Parang kulang sa conviction if ever. But then I'm happy kasi compared naman to USA wayyyy better ang sagot niya. Merry Christmas!

  45. In beauty pageants, contestants really prepare for the q&a portion by rehearsing possible questions. I don't know why people take that negatively. Ganun talaga yan. What's wrong kung magprepare ng mabuti for the q&a portion? It just shows that Janine gave her best and she delivered well.
