For years have commonly circulated
an email titled as "Beauty Pageant boo-boos". They relate
only to Filipino pageants. However we want to add some more funny
answers given by contestants from other pageants in other countries.
Q: "If you only had one of the
five senses, what would you want....to have?"
A: "Uhmm...the sense of sight."
Q: "And why is that?"
A: "Uhm..because, because...ahh..I
have beautiful eyes!"
Q: "How would you spend your last 24 hours on earth?"
A: "I will spend it in church
to forgive my sins!"

after this pageant?"

Q: "What do you think is a woman's greatest advantage?"

is 'she can give birth' and 'equal to man!' "
Emcee: "Ohhh...so you live not far from here...so how did
you come here, did you walk or did you ride?"
Candidate: "Uhmmm...of course
'did you ride.'"
A candidate introducing herself :
"Good afternoon, ladies and
gentlemen! I am Carmelita Hernandez, I come from Pasay City and
I want to be a MEDICINE!!"
Host: "Which of your assets do you think sets you apart from
the rest of the contestants?"
Candidate: "Well, in my opinion,
the asset that sets me apart from all the other contestants is
my INTELLIGENT. "
Host : "What's your favorite motto?"
Contestant: (Didn't utter a word
for 5 seconds as if thinking...then after a while)..."Can
you repeat the question please?"
Host : "Okay, what is your favorite
Contestant: "Hi, hi, hi, hi..."(trying
to delay her answer and pretending to be deep in her thoughts)........"Actor
or actress, sir?"
Host : (Laughs a bit and since he
doesn't want to embarrass the contestant)...."You seem to
be fond of slam books. Remember when you were still a kid, you
had a favorite motto like,'Time is gold.' That is a sample of
Contestant: "Ahh....sir, my
favorite motto is 'Time is gold.' "
At the Miss India contest in 2002
Q : If beauty is skin deep, how deep
A : Beauty is skin deep.....(almost
freezes)... but intelligence is within. Beauty makes you 'beautiful'
on the outside, but intelligence is on the inside.... and that
makes you beautiful both on the inside as well as outside.
At the Miss World 2001 contest :
Q : If you could nominate one person
in the world to become Miss World, who would it be?
Miss China : Nelson Mandela(!!)
At the Miss Universe 1993 pageant :
Q: If you could live forever, would
you and why?
Miss India: I would not live
forever, because we should not live forever,
because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live
but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever.
