After a back-to-back win for the Philippines, we now have a new Miss Earth 2016! And it is Miss Ecuador Katherine Espin. But, of course, dear readers we all know our favorite part of these beauty pageants. And that is the Q&A round. Let’s see how the candidates fared answering the final question and showing their love for Mother Earth.
The Miss Universe 2015 pageant was full of twists and turns this year. But before all of that drama with the announcement and crowning of the winner happened, the audience got treated to a showcase of the candidates’ wit and grace under pressure in the Miss Universe 2015 Q&A. Let’s see how the finalists fared and how I, Amiciness, answer these questions:
The Miss Earth 2015 pageant recently concluded in Vienna, Austria. Angelia Ong from The Philippines won the tilt, making her the second consecutive Filipina to win the crown. A proud moment for the Philippines! However, we’re dedicating a special post to everyone’s favorite pageant portion: the Miss Earth 2015 Q&A. Let’s see how the candidates fared:
Congratulations to Mister Philippines Philippine National Police officer Mariano Flormata Jr. a.k.a. Neil Perez for winning Mister International 2014!
Here is his Q&A (video from Norman’s blog):
And here is a more accurate, less flowery, translation of his answer:
Q: What has been your biggest disappointment in life? (Ano ang pinakamalaki mong kabiguan sa buhay?)
A: Unang-una ang aking disappointment sa buhay ay ang hindi ko paggalang sa magulang ko. At ngayon pinagsisisihan ko ito dahil isang malaking bagay ang galangin natin ang ating magulang dahil siya ang pangalawang utos ng Diyos para sa ating mga Katoliko. Iyon lang po at maraming salamat. (First of all, my disappointment in life is not respecting my parents. And now I regret it because it is a big deal that we respect our parents, because it is the second commandment of God for us Catholics. That is all and thank you very much.)
