Janina San Miguel – rightful Bb. Pilipinas?
If you still don’t know why, Its because of the winner, Janina San Miguel.
Age: 17 years old
Mass Communications student at University of the East
Why did you join? “To gain a lot of experiences, new friends and opportunities” “Bata pa talaga ako, dream ko na ito talaga. Nakikita ko sa TV and I think it’s a nice experience. I knew then that I would try it.”
What makes you stand out from the rest? “My confidence and my personality, even if this is my first time in a big pageant. I was first runner-up in Miss UE.”
Why again? Here is a transcript of the question and answer portion which she was included as one of the final four:
Paolo Bediones: Janina, how are you?
Janina San Miguel: I’m fine.
Paolo Bediones: Alright, so you won two of the major awards – Best in Long Gown, Best in Swimsuit, do you feel any pressure right now?
Janina San Miguel: No, I don’t feel any pressure right now.
Paolo Bediones: Confident! Alright! Please choose a name of the judge.
Paolo Bediones: We have Miss Vivienne Tan.
Vivienne Tan: Good Evening.
Janina San Miguel: Good Evening.
Vivienne Tan: The question is, what role did your family play to you as candidate to Binibining Pilinas?
Janina San Miguel: Well, my family’s role for me is so important b’coz there was the wa- they’re, they was the one who’s… very… Hahahaha… Oh I’m so sorry, Ahhmm… My pamily… My family… Oh my god… I’m… Ok, I’m so sorry… I… I told you that I’m so confident… Eto, Ahhmm, Wait… Hahahaha, Ahmmm, Sorry guys because this was really my first pageant ever b’coz I’m only 17 years old and ahahaha I, I did not expect that I came from, I came from one of the top 10. Hmmm, so… but I said that my family is the most important persons in my life. Thank you.

Here’s the video:
Maybe she had high scores in the other portions of the event. Or is it erased and only the score in question and answer portion is used to get the winner?
Here, I think she was rattled. And that she could have given a good answer if it wasn’t for her “stage freight”. But again, she should have came in prepared… right?
Then we’ll hear someone say “She’s just human” in tagalog, “tao lang siya”. Ok… if you didn’t get the answer right, then should you pass the test?????
But wait, even if she was able to give a good answer, based from her grammar and pronunciation/delivery, did she deserve the crown?
Oh, she didn’t answer the question “what role did your family play to you as candidate to Binibining Pilinas?”
Now, why did she win?
