LOOK: Miss Q&A Jennifer Collins before losing limb in vehicular accident

Here's Miss Q&A Jennifer Collins before getting into accident that caused her right leg to be amputated. 


Netizens were shocked when Jennifer Collins, a transgender who joined a contest on It's Showtime got into a serious accident.

Jennifer, whose real name is Jayson Jiz de Ortega, joined the Miss Q&A segment of the ABS-CBN noontime variety show last August 16.

Just 15 days later, Jennifer became involved in a life-threatening vehicular accident that caused her right leg to be amputated.

On August 31, a jeepney suddenly crashed into the tricyle that Jennifer was riding.

During the August 16 episode of It's Showtime, Jennifer was introduced as a graduate of Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication from Far Eastern University. She worked as freelance real-estate agent and a personality development trainer.

In her introduction, Jennifer said: "Nung nagsabog ang Diyos ng kagandahan, buti na lang gising ang aking nanay.

"Nung nagsabog ang Diyos ng kagwapuhan, Oh my god, ang tatay ko, nakikisabay."

After greeting the "madlang pipol," she quipped, "Tama po kayo, hindi po ako si Imelda Marcos.

"My name is Jennifer Collins, 25 years old, all the way from the fast, rising city of Region 3: San Jose Del Monte, city of Bulacan!

"Naniniwala ako sa kasabihang 'Kung maganda at sexy ka, mag-Miss Gay ka. Pero kung maganda at matalino ka, dito sa Showtime, mag Miss Q&A ka."

Segment host Anne Curtis asked Jennifer: If black is beautiful, ano ang pipiliin mo: maitim na batok o maitim na kili-kili?

Jennifer answered, "I believe na ang pipiliin ko ang maitim na kili-kili.

"Bakit? Marami sa atin ang nahihiya na ipakita kung ano ang nakatago sa atin, maging sa ating batok.

"Pero ang isa sa pinakamagandang paraan para maging proud tayo sa ating sarili ay pag-taas ng ating mga braso at ipakita sa mundo kung gaano tayo ka-proud sa ating sarili.

"Kahit gaano man ito ka-itim, lagi nating tatandaan, kahit gaano ang inyong kili-kili, huwag mahiya dahil pinaghirapan mo 'yan."
