Showbiz Central (SC) conducted a miniquestion-and-answer portion with the three Binibining Pilipinas 2008titleholders—Bb. Pilipinas-International Patricia Fernandez, Bb.Pilipinas-Universe Jennifer Barientos, and the controversial Bb. Pilipinas-World Janinna San Miguel—yesterday, March 16.
SC co-host Raymond Gutierrez, who noticed that thethree winners were not exactly as poised as they look, urged the threestunningly beautiful women to just relax. "Hindi ito Araneta Coliseum, so dapatmas relaxed kayo," Raymond joked.
First up was Patricia Fernandez. The question was: Would youconsider undergoing cosmetic surgery para ma-enhance ang iyong physical assets?Why or why not?
Patricia immediately answered, "As of now, I would try goingfirst to the gym to enhance what I have because I really love my body and Ibelieve that it's the initial thing you have to do...so you really have to acceptyourself first."
The audience applauded Patricia's well-thought answer.
Next in line was Jennifer Barientos.Raymond's question for her was: "Where would you draw the line when it comes toyour privacy?"
"When it comes to our privacy," Jennifer began, "we onlyanswer questions from the media that concerns the Binibining Pilipinas. Asidefrom this thing, hindi na kami nagbibigay ng private information unless maygo-signal by Miss Araneta and BPCI [Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc.]."
"So medyo private din ang personal lives n'yo, e, ang lovelife mo, kamusta?" Raymond followed.
"Wala kasi akong boyfriend," Jennifer answered.
JANINA, THE YOUTUBE PHENOMENON. Saving the best forlast, Raymond called Janina San Miguel, turned famous by her Q&A blunder during the pageant and, oddly enough, made her a winner. Her question was familiar: "Anongrole ng isang beauty queen in today's society?"
As if she were expecting this question, Janinainstantly answered in rapid Tagalog: "Siguro po kami yung magandang ehemplo ngbawat Pilipino ngayong darating na taon. So, kagaya po noon, mangunguna po kamisa mga charities, at saka sa mga orphanages, at saka sa mga daycare centers.Yun po."
Polite applause followed as Janina smiled to the audience.Raymond was all praise for Janina, saying, "Janina, I admire you for the wayyou're handling the situation you're in right now, galingan mo sa Miss World."
Patricia will be competing thisyear in Japan or China for Miss International while Jennifer revealed that at the end of July, shewill be competing in Vietnam for the Miss Universe pageant. Janina willrepresent the Philippines in Ukraine for the Miss World title.
