Repost: Miss Universe Catriona Gray Reveals Feelings on Performance of Vickie Rushton and Other BBP Candidates

Catriona Gray was visibly saddened when she was asked about her thoughts over what happened to Vickie Rushton during the Binibining Pilipinas coronation night last Sunday.

Leading up to finals night, Rushton was widely tipped to take home the coveted Miss Universe-Philippines crown, at least among pageant pundits.

The former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate appeared on track to fulfilling forecasts and online poll results, as she raked in a total of six special awards.

However, she fell short of winning a crown even just as a runner-up because of her performance at the crucial question-and-answer portion, at least according to some dismayed fans.

During the Q&A portion, Rushton initially managed a coherent response to judge Daniel Padilla's question about why mental health is as important as physical health, but then trailed off without finishing her final sentence. Cut off by the 30-second timer, a visibly disappointed Rushton returned to her spot on stage.

Despite this, Gray still thinks Rushton was amazing throughout the competition.

“It’s really unfortunate. I was really rooting for her because I am close with her. She is my first runner-up from my batch. I think she did amazingly even though the thing in Q&A happened,” she told reporters in an interview on Friday.

“You know it happens. It’s a 'grace under pressure' environment. It’s a completely high nerve environment. If it’s your time, it’s your time. Who knows, she might make a comeback? I would totally root for her if she’s planning to join again,” she added.

On or off the pageant stage, Gray appears to be a natural in giving quick yet intelligent answers to tricky questions.

When asked if there’s any advice she could give to other beauty queens with regard to this, Gray said there’s actually “no formula that you can apply to every single girl.”

“Honestly, the girl needs to be driven and see where her weaknesses are and build upon that,” she said. “It’s really a unique thing. Every girl is different. Everyone has different strengths. It’s really the girl needs to assess where she’s lacking and build upon that.”

  1. Let’s admit. She only has beauty and that’s it.. wag na mag bolahan. If she’s not an artista for sure lalamunin sya ng mga kasabayan nya

    2. True. Wag na i-push. No appeal. Walang oomph on stage.

    5. 1:12 oh eh di sana pala hindi naging malaking factor ang Q & A sa pagkatalo ni aling Vickie, hano? Kaya nga kahit anong hakot award ang gawin ni girl naligwak dahil sa Q & A

    6. Hindi ako nagagandahan kay Vicki Rushton. May lahi lang nga foreigner pero mas marami pang mga iba na maganda talaga. I’m not saying na pangit siya, I’m just simply saying that she is not all that beautiful.

    7. Aside from that she just got minor awards na walang factor sa judging. Had she got best in swimsuit or evening gown, then she could clinch a crown.

    8. Tingnan lang natin kung saang imburnal dadalhin ni gazini ang pinas this 2019.

    9. pre Q&A you would think she had a chance since hinakot na nya halos mga sponsors awards. but i was so sure that every girl would have a square fair chance pagdating ng Q&A, and un na nga.

    10. Iba na ang beaucon ngayon, kailangan ng utak at quick wit, otherwise runner up ka lang at best. Gone are the "My Long legged, thank you!" days! Practise pa teh, malay mo, 3rd time's a charm! Kung para sa yo, para sa yo!

    11. Same here 2:57. She is pretty...but there's nothing special at all about her.

      And tama si 3:10 - those were minor awards from sponsors. Which means malakas sya sa sponsors but not necessarily malakas ang laban for the crown. She did not get a single major award that night though, so there's that.

      And yup 1:12, beauty contest nga, kaya nga nakapasok sya eh - pero hindi ibig sabihin mananalo. Because pageants nowadays are no longer about just the face and the body. You have to be way more.

  2. Yes, she is really #bestmsuniverseever. Ang daming maganda pero iisa sya of having intellectual, compassionate heart, mind and soul.

  3. Stop talking & asking about aling Vickie. Let’s give the spotlight to our reigning Bb. Pilipinas Universe! Hindi sya nag handa for Q&A ano pa bang dapat ikalungkot dun?

  4. I do think that even Vickie delivered in Q and A, she wouldn't take home the MUP crown dahil wala siyang kalatoy latoy na rumampa. May energy gap ang pasarela nya. Kulang sya ng sex appeal na meron si Gazini. If she did answer well, i do think that the highest crown would be MIP.

  5. May nanalo na. Hindi pa ba nakakauwi mga fans ni Vickie at tuloy pa rin ang pahype sa kanya?

    1. She has a year to prepare, sayang. Ang hirap kasi d2 sa mga aspiring beauty queens akala nila enough na mag paganda. They need to read not just books and newspapers EVERYDAY. Watch CNN/BBC etc. for current events and read the broadsheets esp. Op/Ed Section. That way they can develop critical thinking at hindi sila na nabubulaga sa Q& A.

    2. Nagbasa nman and practice araw araw nga e kaya lng dapat galing talaga sa puso ang sagot kung memorize mo lng mabablack mental ka.

    3. To be honest, walang binatbat q&a natin sa mga tanong sa Miss India. Read up, o magmodel-model na lang na walang talkies, choz!

  6. Hindi lang naman q&a siya sumablay. Pati sa walk at facial expression walang kagana-gana. As in boring.

  7. Kaya gusto ko si Cat parang di tulad sa iba na masyadong halatang scripted at pinaghandaan mga sagot

    1. Matalino naman kasi si cat. Kaya kahit anong tanong ibigay sa kanya kaya niyang sagutin. At siya yung tipo na tao na kapag nagsalita makikinig ka talaga. Very eloquent at honest.

  8. She is a copy cat. Remember her rampa during the evening gown competition. She tried too hard to immitate the signature pose of catriona. But it was so pilit and it showed to her eyes and body movements that she was not comfy doing that pose.

  9. Mahirap nman tlga Q&A sa mga beauty pageants. Kahit nga un simpleng job interview nkka-kaba na e, Q&A pa kaya na maraming taong nakikinig sayo. Bihira lng tlga mga gaya nila Shamcey, Pia, Catriona..marurunong sumagot kahit under pressure.

  10. Yup no formula tlga

  11. Laging pressure at nerve ang excuse. While it's true, let's also acknowledge na may mga contestants na magaling sa public speaking and well-read and informed at may mga contestants na hindi. Lahat naman sila kakabahan pero hindi lahat sila ready. Aminin na lang kesa andaming excuse.

    2. True. It's ok to clam up, because that really happens...pero bumawi ka. Recover. Pausing is okay, it's not a crime, use it wisely dapat.
