We came so close to the crown once again.

Our bet for this year’s Miss Universe Shamcey Supsup made it to the Top 5 and won Third Runner-Up… one place higher than last year’s Bb. Pilipinas – Universe Venus Raj. Way to go Philippines!

Bb. Pilipinas – Universe 2011 and Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-Up Shamcey Supsup

So close… grabe! Still, she deserved a much higher place in my opinion. Her answer in the Q&A was good, one of the hosts said it herself. Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes of Angola got a pretty easy question (care of Ms. Lea Salonga). However, I couldn’t deny that she’s beautiful. It was still a well-deserved win.

Anyway, the best thing about this is that next year, even more Pinays with beauty and brains will join the pageant. What has long been an event that only the “judings” (read: gays) tune in to has been revived… much like the nineties when the pageant itself was held here. Ano? Panalo na tayo next year? The pressure is on!
