Senator Sonny Angara, criticized for asking question in Filipino to Pia Wurtzbach

Netizens are criticizing Senator Sonny Angara's move when he asked Binibining Pilipinas candidate in an unconventional way - that is asking in Tagalog. Pia Wurtzbach, a second-time contestant who hailed from Cagayan De Oro and lived in Engaland was thrown this question...

“Ano yung pinakamagandang leksyon na maituturo ng isang babae sa buong mundo?"

Wurtzbach answered, “Ang isang leksyon na maituturo ng babae sa buong mundo ay yung tiwala sa kanyang sarili. Yung intuition po na tinatawag natin. Kapag meron  ka pong intuition alam mo sa sarili mo kung saan mo ilulugar yung sarili mo sa mundo. Kahit na hindi ka sigurado sa nararamdaman mo o sa naiisip mo pero kung alam mo sa intuition mo, then magiging successful ka sa kahit anong gawin mo sa buhay mo.”

(The lesson that a woman may impart to the world is having trust in herself. What you call intuition. If you have intuition you will be able to find your place in the world. Even if you are not sure with what you feel or think, if you are intuitive, then you will become successful in whatever you do in your life.)

Before giving his question, Angara asked Wurtzbach, “Okay lang ba Tagalog (Can I ask it in Tagalog)?” “Opo, pwede ko ring sagutin ng Tagalog kung gusto nyo po (Yes, I can also answer it in Tagalog if you want.),” the contestant answered.

The 24-year old did not win any crown during the Bb. Pilipinas pageant but bagged special awards from the contest sponsors. She received the She’s So Jag Award and was hailed Miss Philippines Airlines.

Fans of the actress, who is a former talent of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic, said it was Angara’s fault why Wurtzbach didn’t place in the competition. Meanwhile, others defended the senator, saying he shouldn’t be the one to blame.

On Angara's Instagram account, the senator posted the criteria for judging the candidates and revealed Intelligence has only 10% of the candidate's score.

Nevertheless, the actress, posted on Instagram, “Grateful that I was able to experience what it’s like to be a part of the pageant world. When I placed 1st runner up last year, I gave all my time, effort & love to my job. I had so much fun! I just tried again because I wanted to know of this was really meant for me. But how do you know if you don’t take chances, right?”

  2. Nagtataka lang ako bakit ang mga judges ang sinisisi dito? Hindi bat bb pilipinas yan? natural tagalog ang dapat itanong sa kanila.
