Well, I felt so emotionally drained today. We were watching the live telecast of the MISS UNIVERSE 2011 this morning, and I was delirious when Shamcey was called to join the top 16. I was overly ecstatic when she was called in the top ten. Then in the TOP FIVE - I was already praying and holding my breath ... AND there she GOES again !!! My ever loyal gay friend Leah, was there with me holding our hands when she was called in the top five and we were really holding our breath during the Q @ A portion..
UKRAINE, PHILIPPINES, CHINA, BRAZIL & ANGOLA !!! Shamcey without batting an eyelash, give an oustanding answer !!! I could not stop myself shreiking !!! The other girls were using interpreters and Angola was not coherent and she exceeded the time limit (first time that I heard of!)... Shamcey DELIVERED the BEST answer to her question IN COMPARISON and it was really smart and direct to the point AND IN ENGLISH without the AID of an interpreter, something that she would be proud of !!! OMG! The crown is definitely hers !!!(I was also updating my FB while watching and dealing with my emotional outbreak)..
BRAZIL, ANGOLA, UKRAINE, CHINA and the WINNER is PHILIPPINES !!! That was my verdict (true to my prediction and prelims judging) !!! And then China was called to be the 4th RU ... (??? was happy bec I thought she would be left standing with Shamcey) ... and I almost died when she was called very early to become the 3rd runner up !!! I was stunned in disbelief !!!.
I could not believe I was really crying !!! As if someone died !!!.
END OF STORY :).
Well, my friend said that at least she made it to the TOP FIVE, good as the crown itself !!! And that she has really given a brilliant answer to the Q @ A, redeeming Venus last year and even exceeding her rank being the 3rd, this time !!!.
I could not REALLY believe it !!! She was selected in the top five and has given the best answer to become the winner !!! And she lost it !!! I think the better word was robbed !!! Even Oprah had something to say "I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is the Q and A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point."
Personally, it is very difficult to accept the result, since Shamcey is really my sentimental candidate but with the biggest possibility of winning and she did WIN it .... but did not get the crown that she rightfully deserved !!! A BIG SHAM of a pageant !!! Last year's Venus, was totally different because her answer to the Q&A was really questionable and even become a national comedy of sorts ... Shamcey gave an impressive answer, that is the whole point. My problem is ... i get totally immersed and involved in this competition !!!.
Question : Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why or why not?
Miss Philippines - Shamcey Supsup Answer: If I had to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I love because the first person that I love is God who created me and I have my faith and my principles and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God too.. And who would not be proud of that answer ? I could not think of a better version !!! . AFTER THOUGHTS . I have totally lost my faith in the MS UNIVERSE pageant !!! They should really divulge and open up the scores and the method of judging to the public, to clear up the questions, doubts and disappointments of everyone !!! As of now I have totally lost my interest !!! It is sooo whimsical they could just easily prejudged and decided and crown anyone to their whims... :) NOW MY QUESTION IS: What could have happen to the world today if Shamcey was only chosen as MU 2011??? ANSWER: The world could have been a better place to live in :) I SHOULD REST MY CASE, BYE !!!
