Senator Edgardo "Sonny" Angara Jr. was one of the 11 members of the panel of judges at the recently held coronation night of 2014 Binibining Pilipinas pageant. On his Instagram account @sonnyangara, he posted the photo above showing the criteria of judging a beauty queen.

The photo revealed that 50% of candidate's beauty of face was given the highest weight score, beauty of figure with 30%, and Intelligence and Poise & Personality were given 10% each.

The "revelation drew mixed reactions from netizens. Some contested the criteria but some agreed since it's called a "beauty" pageant and not a quiz bee.


mimiyang8833Sana naman ginawa ng 20%
kanmlimKaya sa q and a masyado dehado.tayo sa miss u.
clarissevirginoThis doesn't seem like a fair rubric. Intelligence for only 10%?
louieanlapIt's a beauty pageant. Not a quiz bee.
shang4381Hi @louieanlap. It's not just a beauty pageant. Beauty Queens with "BRAINS" dapat. I agree to some comments, kaya dehado tayo sa International Competitions. Only few can answer well. Of course, given na rin ang being nervous on stage pero iba pa rin ang may alam. Just sayin✌️.
franciscyril1983Wala naman kasing pangit at di sexy sa kanilang lahat kaya 50 agad sa pinaka maganda at 30 sa hubog ng katawan. Ang tanong kasi parang breaker na yan, pwede mong e-10 ang pinaka matalino.
louieanlap@shang4381 actually i prefer na mas malaki ang weight ng poise and personality. Kasi kahit yung di masyado maganda basta carry ng poise and personality niya, kabogera na agad. Daanin sa attitude mga kalaban. And be reminded na sa mga intl beauty pagents, the competition does not happen in the coronation night alone. The competition starts at Day 1 ng pagpunta nila sa host country. Poise and personality will make them stand out and get notice and eventually win.
shang4381Agree din ako dyan @louieanlap... Btw, i'm happy. A fellow Davaoeña won. Thank you. You're kind.
becauseimvalIf that's the criteria, then they were all deserving winners. #justsaying
pinas063@bjdeasis : beauty that's given. After all, they were screened before they make it to the list. Obviously, not a quiz bee, but it is of great importance someone has a good head on her shoulders. As you noticed in intl pageants, the one who has the best answer of the few left, gets home the crown.
xandronietoIts nice that these criteria for judging have been posted. It's not something that's explained in the coronation night... Something has to be modified here, i guess.
rach_rilloI love the 10% for intelligence... To walk straight w/ a crown!
makemeeupmariaI believed di lang s q and a mbaba c @piawurtzbachbut also with the other criterias.... if shes IN kahit 2nd runner-up she have it... to think its just 10% lang ang intelligence... it means na below top 7 pa ang ranking nya... sad reality.. Ugali ng pinoy ang manisi kapag nag fail! Porket di nanalo ang bet nila hahanap ng masisisi! And to think na di lahat gus2 c pia... honestly im not against to ms.pia but shes not on my crown lists!#grwup #justathought
