Pasabog si Miss Bohol Pauline Amelinckx hindi lang sa ganda kundi pati sa "pagsabog niya ng lagim" sa pre-pageant event ng Miss Universe Philippines 2022.
Classy ang kanyang dating sa suot niyang red Maria Clara-inspired dress nang sumalang siya sa preliminary Q&A na ginanap kahapon, April 27, 2022.
Pero hindi siya nangiming aminin sa panel of judges na hindi niya mapigilang mautot sa nerbiyos habang naghihintay backstage para sa Q&A.
Ito kasi ang isa sa mga tanong sa Q&A: "What is the funniest experience you've had with your closest friends or things that make you LOL?"
"I had a funny experience earlier. I'm gonnna share it.
"I was a little bit nervous, a little bit flatulent. Haha! So I passed...
"I went to a corner and I passed a little bit of gas, and I went back to my chair and I can still smell it," walang kaabog-abog na pag-amin ni Pauline.

ON WOMEN'S HEALTH AND ADVICE TO YOUNG WOMEN
Sa mga kasamahang Miss Universe Philippines candidates, hirit daw ni Pauline: "So I told everybody else, 'Can you just put your mask now? This is the most important time to wear your mask. Hahaha!"
Hindi naman halata kay Pauline na ninerbiyos siya sa Q&A dahil relaxed siya sa pagsagot ng mga ibinatong tanong sa kanya.
Simple pero hindi siya nautal at straight-to-the-point ang kanyang pagsagot.
Tanong sa kanya: "Women's health and well-being is a major part of Miss Universe Philippines' advocacy this year. How do you encourage women to take a more active role in this advocacy?"
Sagot ni Pauline: "I would love to have conversations with them. Be part of that conversation too.
"And I'm so happy that we had a menstrual equity talk just a few days ago, yesterday apparently.
"By having those conversations, by being included myself, I can bring people together with me so that they too can be part and ripple that effect out."
Tanong ulit kay Pauline, "What advice can you give to a young woman for her to become more socially aware and become empowered?"
Sagot niya, "Read the social issues. Be aware of what's arround you, not just in your country but in the world.
"Because we are not just an island. We are a global community. So, we have the power of the Internet. Let's use it."
LOVE FOR THE OCEAN
Naipasok naman ni Pauline ang kanyang talento sa pagiging freediver nang tanungin siya tungkol sa kanyang childhood memory na nakakapagpangiti sa kanya.
Lahad niya: "The story of when my dad pulled me out of the water because I was so excited to swim in the deep pool for the first time, not knowing how to swim yet.
"And my dad saw me ran to the slide and he already knew, 'She's gonna drown.'
"So he just waited for me to go down the slide and just pick me up by my T-shirt and put me on the side.
"But now, I'm a free diver."
Hilig ni Miss Bohol ang mag-beach, at ipinagmalaki niya na kaya niyang hindi huminga ng apat na minuto habang nakasisid sa dagat bilang isang certified free diver.
Ipinamalas niya iyon noong Marso sa Introduction Video Challenge ng Miss Universe Philippines kung saan siya ang winner.
