The Philippines is indeed rejoicing as Ms. Philippine Venus Raj lifted up the country’s spirits as she won the 4th place in the Ms. Universe 2010 beauty pageant held in Mandalay Hotel and Resort USA. Almost all Filipinos were glued to their TV sets watching the unfolding of Venus’ would be victory. Those who were not given the opportunity to watch it live had to content themselves in waiting for tweets from people who were watching the pageant live.
It was indeed a roller coaster ride for all the Filipinos who witnessed yesterday hostage drama at the Quirino Grandstand. As one Filipino brought shame to the country, another Filipino put the glory back and rose from the ranks to be crowned as 4th runner-up. After a long time of not having beauty titles, this is something to be proud of.
Although some were disappointed with the answer that Venus Raj gave, still landing in 4th place is not bad at all. When asked about one big mistake that she has done in her life, she answered saying that she has not committed a “major major mistake” in her life. Those who watched it believed that she should have answered it better. By far the question that she had was one of the best questions in this year’s beauty pageant. Still, being in the top 5 is a great honor already so nobody is complaining.
The 4th runner-up in this year’s Ms. Universe has truly proven her worth as she gave honor to the Philippines in this years competition. She almost didn’t make it this far as she was stripped of her crown because of inconsistencies in her birth record. She fought hard and her hard work paid off. Congratulations to the newest addition to the roster of Filipina beauty queens who brought honor to the Philippines and to all Filipinos all over the world, Venus Raj!
Congratulations to Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete!
