Miss Universe 2012 Q&A Portion

Nigel Barker: As an international ambassador, do you think speaking English is a prerequisite to being Ms Universe?

Janine Tugonon: Being Ms Universe is not just about being able to speak a language, it's about inspiring, influencing people regardless of what language you speak, for as long as you have the heart to serve and a strong mind, you can be Miss Universe.

I loved all five of them, it really narrowed it down to the USA and Philippines. They're both exceptional, so I was okay either way. I was hopeful because "third's time the charm", but either way regardless of the result, I'm still really proud of Janine. And congratulations to the Philippines reaching Top 5 for the third straight year! Those are "major major" accomplishments right there!  ;D

Janine willing to give showbiz a try

MANILA, Philippines - Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon said that she is not closing her doors on show business.

In a phone interview on the ABS-CBN morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda" on Friday, Tugonon said her boyfriend, Jaypee Santos, is against the idea but she is willing to give showbiz a try.

"Hindi ko pa alam pero siya (boyfriend) ayaw niya. Ako naman okay lang naman pero I don't think na full time," she explained.

"Siguro titignan ko muna kasi hindi rin ako magaling umarte," she added. "So titignan ko muna, iwe-weigh ko muna ang sitwasyon."

Despite this, Tugonon stressed that she will still consider her boyfriend's opinion.

"Dapat mag-submit ako sa kanya pero sabi niya okay lang basta huwag masyadong full-time. Okay lang kung endorsement or commercial, ayaw niya lang na may ka-love team or kaeksena.

"Naiintindihan ko siya, kasi kung ako rin naman ang nasa pwesto niya, ayaw ko rin ng may ganoon. Hindi ba siguro kailangan kong mag-submit sa kanya at gusto kong i-save ang relationship namin," she added.

Her predecessors, Shamcey Supsup and Venus Raj, have taken on a number of hosting projects on ABS-CBN.

Raj, in particular, is currently one of the hosts of "Umagang Kay Ganda", where she met her current boyfriend Andrei Felix.

On settling down

In the interview, Tugonon also shared her thoughts about settling down with Santos.

"Actually napag-uusapan naman namin 'yon. I mean, kami naman pareho ay sigurado na sa isa't isa. Pero sa ngayon ay masyado pang maaga for that," she explained.

"Parang marami pang kailangang asikasuhin. Marami pang dapat paghandaan. Hindi rin ganoon kadali pumasok sa ganoong estado, hindi ba? So ngayon, siguro ay enjoy muna namin."
