Oh, my goodness Janina San Miguel, I checked my emails an hour ago and found some very interesting queries about the recently-concluded Bb. Pilipinas 2008 beauty pageant. This is in relation to my previous articles about the contest where Janina San Miguel won one of the highest awards – the Bb. Pilipinas 2008-Ms. World title. Much to my surprise, the win by Janina San Miguel of the title Ms. World was seen by many as controversial (based on email contents). This in turn tarnished the reputation of the Bb. Pilipinas franchise as it is bombarded as of late with negative feedbacks. This is partly because of Janina San Miguel, whether we admit it or not.
This then begs the question if Janina San Miguel is deserving or not to represent our country in the Ms. World beauty pageant on foreign territory. If Janina San Miguel is perceived by many as undeserving of the Ms. World crown, then what does that make the body governing the pageant?
I don’t know about you but others have said their piece and see this poor 17-year-old lass as just a pretty face on a one-way street.
Here is again Janina San Miguel‘s photo:
In fairness, she’s beautiful. But unlike her predecessors in the ranks of Ruffa Gutierrez and others, she just lacks the wit to please the judges of an international competition as prestigious as the Ms. World 2008. Well, that’s just me. I just hope she improves a great deal before the day of the competition comes.
UPDATE: Shanker Bakshi, a blogger-friend from India requested me to upload this video for non-Filipinos like him to understand the issue. Well, I think he has a point there. Foreigners who were not able to watch the Bb. Pilipinas Grand Coronation Night could have a better insight if they can watch the youtube video of Janina San Miguel. So here it is.
