Janine was right on why she lost

By Gerry Plaza | omg! Philippines News Blog – 20 hours ago


2012 Miss Universe First Runner-up Janine Tugonon (Ibarra Siapno, NPPA Images)

With Janine Tugonon’s first runner-up win at the Miss Universe pageant, we should all be happy.

In fact, even if Janine failed to bring home the title, she proved that with her intelligence and grace, she was more than a winner—she is a true embodiment of what Filipinos aspire for and what they want to achieve.

What should make us admire her even more was Janine’s humility amid all the praise she got, including comments that she and not Miss USA Olivia Culpo should have won the Miss Universe crown.

Reasons Miss USA won

Janine bared a “list” of reasons why Miss USA won. Culpo was winsome and “nice” and familiar with the Miss Universe organization, to which she was involved in so many of its activities, among others.

Janine even revealed that during those final moments before the first runner-up was announced, she thought, “Hindi rin puwede talaga.”

Above all, Janine mentioned the most controversial—Culpo’s answer in the Q&A portion. When Miss USA was asked to name the one thing she would never do again, she replied:  “Picking on my siblings when I was growing up.”

Q&A: straightforward or ‘profound’?

It seemed she gave an easy answer to what was viewed as a very simple question, compared to what judge Nigel Barker had asked Janine.

Responding to the question of whether Miss Universe should be required to speak English, Janine said the position transcends language but involves inspiring and being an influence to others as well as having the heart and mind to serve.

While many would consider this response as much more profound and clever, Janine said Miss USA’s response was “not bad and also spontaneous.”

But despite her humble “explanation” of why Culpo took home the title, observers felt the decision as unbelievable, even to the point of calling it fraudulent.

Why??

Screams of “Why??” and “Luto!” inundated social sites and echoed throughout Filipino households watching the event live, including those “viewing parties” where reactions of the attendees were posted on YouTube.

But then again, just like any beauty or talent competition, decisions will always be subjective. As Janine said, “However great your answer may be, the judges may like another response more.”

Surprisingly, some judges seemed to appreciate an unadorned and straightforward answer rather than one with insight. Even though how thought-provoking an answer could be,  some judges either didn’t want to think, or may have had enough of motherhood, a.k.a. “world peace”  statements.

Maybe this should be considered in the orientation and training of future candidates.

Next, we bag the crown!

But this doesn’t mean Janine did wrong. She was her true self and answered the question the best she can—and she did give an exceptional answer.

But in winning the crown, all of us should consider—apart from great teeth, marvelous hair, amazing confidence and cultivated smarts—the ever-shifting realities of beauty contests.  That is, if we really want to win the title.

And, yes, we are getting there.

    LAS VEGAS, NV - DECEMBER 19: Miss Philippines 2012, Janine Tugonon, is introduced …

MANILA, Philippines --- Fresh from her successful finish, 2012 Miss Universe first runner-up Janine Mari Tugonon believes she delivered the best answer during the final interview of the most prestigious pageant, but stressed that she "left everything to God" her quest for the most coveted crown.

"I think okay naman ang sagot ko. At sabi nila, sa aming lima, I gave the best answer. But other things have to be considered such as catwalk, evening gown, swimsuit. I would rate my answer as okay," said Tugonon at a homecoming press conference at Gateway Suites, Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, yesterday.

Renowned photographer Nigel Barker asked her: "As an international ambassador, do you believe that speaking English is a prerequisite to being Miss Universe? Why or why not?"

With poise and confidence, Tugonon answered: "For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing a specific language. She should be able to influence and inspire other people. Whatever language you have, as long as your heart wants to serve the people, you have a strong mind, then you can be Miss Universe."

Tugonon arrived at 5:41 a.m. yesterday aboard a Philippine Airlines flight from Las Vegas, Nevada, beaming with pride and joy. The smile on her face was evident as she greeted her supporters, stopping several times as she obliged to shake their hands and take photographs with them.

Tugonon, 23, a licensed pharmacist, recalled some memorable moments in the pageant that led her to becoming first runner-up in the beauty contest. When the time came that she and Miss USA Olivia Culpo were the last two candidates standing, Tugonon felt excited. "I got excited, but a part of me may nagsasabi this is it, pero another part of me nagsasabi na hindi ako." In the end, Tugonon settled for first runner-up while Culpo was crowned 2012 Miss Universe.

Despite failing to win the crown, other candidates congratulated her. She made special mention of Miss Indonesia, her roommate who was every emotional.

After the pageant, some of the candidates told her that she should have won the contest, she said. "We believe that it's you, and you know that it's you."

The Bataan beauty also believes Miss Venezuela was her closest rival among the 89 candidates in this year's pageant because of her charisma and personality. She likewise said that she loves Miss Mexico whom she describes as "genuine."

Tugonon, however, got disappointed when Miss Puerto Rico did not qualify for the Top 16 semifinalists. "I enjoyed talking to her because she's so nice. I'm also close to her and she's sexy."

Tugonon defended the Miss Universe judges, saying the competition was not rigged as some would like to believe. "Hindi naman luto. Subjective ang judging. Maaring maganda nga ang sagot ko pero mas gusto naman nung mga judges si Olivia, e, wala tayong magagawa duon."

"For me, the judging is subjective. May iba't ibang gusto ng mga judges. Ang importante ay nagawa ko naman yung best ko. Tangapin na lang natin." Janine added.

The honor graduate from the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Pharmacy added that Miss USA is a good person and they became friends during the pageant as they were together on several occasions.

"Isa pa, kawawa naman ang US. Ang dami nilang tragedies. If winning the Miss Universe crown would give them hope and happiness, e, di hayaan na natin sa kanila iyon."

She also recalled that days before the pageant, critics in Las Vegas gave her the thumbs-up and said she would make it big in the competition. "I just felt happy when they said I was one of the favorite candidates for the pageant."

But Tugonon revealed feeling nervous as the pageant approached despite the positive reviews she got.

She also disclosed that part of her cash prize of US$3,000 (roughly P126,000) will be used in paying the house she bought last year. But with five endorsements in the offing, as announced by Stella Marquez Araneta, chairman of Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI), Tugonon could easily pay up for the house.

Asked about her future plans, Tugonon said that she's not closing at opportunities that might come her way such as show business or modeling contracts. "Pwede naman ako kahit saan. Ayoko magsalita ng patapos."

She also gave tips to Binibining Pilipinas "wannabes" who want to join next year. "Akala nila madali lang sumali sa pageant. You have to put effort and dedication. Kailangan determined din sila. Kung wala sila nito, 'wag na lang siguro silang mag-join."

The country has produced two Miss Universe - Gloria Diaz (1969) and Margie Moran (1973). In 1999, Miriam Quiambao finished first runner-up in the same pageant held in Trinidad and Tobago. But the Philippines made history when it received three back-to-back honors with Ma. Venus Raj (4th runner up, 2010), Shamcey Supsup (3rd runner up, 2011) and Tugonon this year.

Janine Tugonon and boyfriend break up
By Karen Valeza | Yahoo! Southeast Asia Newsroom – 43 minutes ago


    Miss Universe Philippines, Janine Tugonon, competes in an evening gown of her choice as one of the top ten contestants during this year's LIVE NBC Telecast of the 2012 Miss Universe Competition at PH Live in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 19, 2012.
HO/Miss Universe Organization L.P., LLLP

Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon and boyfriend of one year Jaypee Santos have called it quits.

"Honestly, ngayon we are not in good terms. Siguro may nangyari lang na hindi ko ini-expect na mangyayari," Janine said during her guesting on KrisTV on Tuesday, April 16. Jaypee was present during the show.

Meeting Danny

Janine revealed that one of the reasons why they broke up is her communication with The Script main vocalist Danny O' Donoghue. She met Danny during the band's Manila concert in March 31 and the two have been exchanging text messages since then.

"Kasi hindi ba sa Araneta kapag may meet and greet, since kilala ko ang staff ng Araneta sabi ko sa kanila sobra akong fan ng The Script pwede bang ma-meet ko. So na meet niya ako, nandoon siya si (Jaypee) pinakilala ko nga siya, kasi tinanong niya 'Do you have a boyfriend?' Sabi ko 'Yeah that's my boyfriend.' Tapos sabi niya 'Follow me on Twitter and I will follow you back. Tapos nag-direct message siya," Janine recalled.

Janine’s admission that she and Danny exchanged messages didn't sit well with Jaypee.

"Kasi sabi niya (Jaypee) kung ayaw mo talaga sa taong iyan hindi mo siya kokontakin," Janine said.

This led to an argument that ended their relationship.

"Kasi nga ayaw ko naman na may iba akong iniisip. Sabi ko sa kanya I need some time to think talaga," she said.

Does Danny like her?

"Hindi naman sa type, we are talking lang," Janine replied.

She  feels that Danny, who broke up with his model-girlfriend Irma Mali last year, also wants to know her better. Janine said she and Danny are not yet an item, but they still communicate.

"Akala ko kasi si Danny na baka that night lang o nagandahan lang and all. Pero feeling ko siya din ay gusto niyang makilala ako," she said.

Janine is happy she realized that she’s still attracted to another man while she’s still single.

"Kahit sa ganito palang kababaw eh na-attract na ako kaagad, paano pa kapag ikakasal na? Maganda na ganito pa lang kaaga eh nalaman ko na napwede pa pala akong ma-attract sa iba."

Jaypee, on the other hand, is said to willing to wait for Janine to come back to him.

Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon, the country’s latest pride and joy, has joined the ranks of Avon’s beauty icons and advocates as its latest endorser for its fragrance, color, fashion, jewelry, and watches lines.

She signed a contract with the beauty company that was represented by Avon Southeast Asia Cluster Director for Beauty  and  Strategy  Tricia Dizon, Avon Marketing Direction for Southeast Asia Cluster Ashley  Ferguson, Avon Senior Vice President and President for Asia Pacific  and Philippines Bob Briddon, Cecile  Marvilla, and Southeast Asia Category  Head  for Avon Color and Personal Care Mari Ann Soliven.

“Avon is a brand I’ve known for years, and I like that more than offering quality beauty products, the company provides earning opportunities for its Representatives, and takes part in causes as well,” said the 5-foot-8-inch beauty from Bataan, a licensed pharmacist and cum laude graduate from the University of Santo Tomas.

“More than representing the Philippines in the Miss Universe Pageant, which she did very well, Janine  also represents what Avon stands for: beauty inside  and  out,”  added Bob Briddon. “We are more than happy and proud to welcome her to the Avon family.”

So what kung silahis or bakla?
by Eklat!/Jun Cortez Apr 20, 2013 4:35pm HKT

ILANG araw na ring pinagpi-fiestahan sa internet (FB /Twitter world) ang diumano’y pagbi-break nina 2012 Ms. Universe first runner-up na si Janine Marie Togonon at boyfriend nito. Ang isyu ay ang panghihiya umano on national television ng beauty queen sa kanyang boyfriend.

Ang siste, lumabas na nega si Janine sa mata ng mayorya at napunta ang simpatya sa kanyang ex-BF. Ang pangit nga lang nito, ang ilang kampi kay Janine e nagsasalita nang wala sa ayos yata at masydong personal ang atake sa rating dyowa ng beauty queen.

Ang isyu ay ang gender raw nito. Na kuno ay malamya, silahis o bading, na hindi naman yata tama? Oh, e, ano ba naman kung silahis o bakla? Hindi naman pinag-uusapan ang gender ng dalawang magkatipan, lalaki man o babae dahil prefference na nila ‘yon. Ginusto nila ‘yon. Sila ang nag-ugnayan at nagmahalan.

Sana mag-stick lang sa issue sa usapin ng paghihiwalay nila. Hindi na sana nagawa ni Janine na ipahiya pa ang kanyang ex-boyfriend on a national TV since may pinagsamahan at nagmahalan sila.

Saka hindi naman yata marapat at matuwid na ang isang beauty queen na isang magandang ehamplo sana ng pagka finesse at tamang pag-uugali since bilang beauty queen, huwaran at larawan sana ng isang tamang Ms. Universe na hinangaan ng balana.

At sa mga basher naman ng ex-Bf ni Janine, kung may pruweba man kayo ng pagiging silahis o bakla nung tao, ilabas n’yo para fair at hindi naman masyadong mayurakan pa yung dignidad nito na ang kasalanan lang naman yata e magpa-underdog sa kagustuhang maisalba pa niya ang kanilang relasyon.
