After what happened last night, I was looking forward to a major uplifting today from watching the Miss Universe 2010 pageant, with our representative Venus Raj.
I was so ecstatic when Venus Raj made it to the Top 5. Even though she didn't win, I'm still proud of her. Venus Raj was crowned 4th Runner-up in this year's Miss Universe.
Here's the list of the winners:
Miss Congeniality Miss Australia – Jesinta Campbell
Miss Photogenic Miss Thailand – Fonthip Watcharatrakul
Miss National Costume Miss Thailand – Fonthip Watcharatrakul
Fourth Runner-Up Miss Philippines – Venus Raj
Third Runner-Up Miss Ukraine – Anna Poslavska
Second Runner-Up Miss Australia – Jesinta Campbell
First Runner-Up Miss Jamaica – Yendi Phillipps
Miss Universe 2010 Miss Mexico – Jimena Navarrete
They are all really beautiful! Congratulations, especially to the Miss Universe 2010 winner Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete!
And to Venus Raj, you did well! :)
P.S. I just hope, next time, these women won't avoid answering the question just to stay positive. They need to be more inspiring with their answers. And I think that's what caused Venus the title. Sayang! Trending on Twitter is "major major" because of Pinoys. What's wrong with us? LOL.
I just read on Twitter about Lea Salonga suggesting we use an interpreter next time. I believe our representative could better answer the question in our own language, Filipino / Tagalog. The Spanish-speaking, Chinese-speaking and other language-speaking contestants use an interpreter. What's wrong with us doing the same? We shouldn't be ashamed of our own language!
