Top 10 Best Answerers in the History of the Miss Universe Pageant
Answer: "For me Miss Universe is not about being able to speak a particular language, it's about being able to influence and inspire other people. No matter what language you have as long as you have the heart you can inspire other people."
A beauty pageant is a beauty pageant. There's nothing wrong with anyone's opinion, just as there's nothing wrong with the answers given by each finalist. However, I think we have to balance and consider things. I am Filipino by blood, heart, and culture, and I'm very proud of how Janine answered the question given to her. But of course, there's a board of judges, and they're more powerful than everyone else's decision. So, we should just respect their decision if they really thought that the hailed winner should have been the winner.
Janine Tugonon most deserved the crown. I am not very satisfied that the USA was the winner. If you watch the question and answer portion, you will also not be satisfied with the USA. Why? Because Janine's answer was the most beautiful and interesting. It's truly remarkable, considering she is Filipino and not fluent in English. Yet, she delivered her answer in English and it was fabulous. Filipinos do not use an interpreter, so on-the-spot answering is essential.
Gloria's Answer: "Oh, just the same things I do. I think if he has been on the moon for so long, I think when he comes over he wants to change, I guess."
It's a question which everyone might need more time to think about before giving their answer. Yet, she answered it right after being asked the question. The natural and common-sense answer earned her the crown. I think she is the top intelligent Miss Universe of all time.
She must be ranked number one. All contestants were shocked during the Q and A, but she thought quickly and intelligently. The first statement she said was so true and real, supported by the second and third statements.
1st: Oh, just the same things I do.
2nd: I think if he has been on the moon for so long,
3rd: I think when he comes over he wants to change, I guess.
She must be a top 1. Still, no one beats her answer. All top 5 contestants were shocked with the question, but among them, she answered directly, and from the first sentence to the second sentence to the third sentence, they coincided.
Margie's Answer: "I would buy a big house where I can live with all the people I love."
She should be the second-best answerer. Her answer is very simple but indeed very true. In the hierarchy of human needs, the first is physiological needs, which include shelter/home. Second is safety needs, and third is belongingness and love needs - she will live with other people. So, she must be the second or first.
Her answer is simply awesome. Within the hierarchy of needs:
- Other people/family-love and belongingness.
The answer touches everyone's heart, something that we all wish to do.
With her answer, she stands strong in defense of all women who are subject to faults and failures. Committing mistakes doesn't stop one from moving forward and proving their worth. Everybody deserves the best chances.
Her answer was prompt and full of hope.
What physical appearance that you want to change to be beautiful? And what is the most important principle that you hold?
I am really grateful to God because He had created me, I am satisfied with the body and the way God had given to me. I wouldn't change any single thing of my body. I considered my self as a woman blessed with inner beauty. I got many great life principles from my family, and I will hold that principle for my whole life.
Very good answer, simple yet confident and honest. She convinced us to love ourselves regardless of how we look, not to dissing them. She also values inner beauty more than anything else. So, embrace ourselves people, we're amazing
Being content is a very important characteristic for human beings like us, so be grateful for the gifts God has given you. You are the perfect creation of God, which can never be compared to anything.
Mpule's Answer: "Personally, I think it should not in any way interrupt her duties. She should be allowed to celebrate her femininity. "
What a wonderful answer! I saw the video and was amazed by the way she said it. It was as if she was already prepared. It came so naturally to her. She deserved to win.
I love all beauties of the world. Especially when beauties are so intelligent, honest, smart, and simple.
A very intelligent answer from a very strong woman inside!
Lara's Answer: "I think pageants like the Miss Universe pageant gives us young women a platform to foray in the fields that we want to and forge ahead, be it entrepreneurship, be it the armed force, be it politics. It gives us a platform to voice our choices and opinions, and makes us strong, independent that we are today."
Lara Dutta is a perfect blend of "Beauty with Brains" and "Beauty with Purpose". She is intelligent, witty, a fantastic orator, exudes confidence, and carries herself with poise. You want to believe everything she says, and she knew she had the title in her bag because she really has a presence. She is the best person to represent India in an International Pageant and make India and its citizens proud. Bravo to Lara Dutta for her commendable answers and presence.
The utmost outright standout with the best answer in a final question in Miss Universe history. Along with being beautiful, she possessed so much confidence and class in this interview. The rhythm and tone of her answer flowed as if it was a question she knew would be asked and had memorized her answer. But no, it was spontaneous, and she nailed it to perfection.
I notice there are so many points she emphasized in her answer too:
1. MU is a platform.
2. Examples of the many fields one can undertake in this platform - armed forces, politics, entrepreneurship.
3. The benefits this platform can do for anyone (voice our choices and opinions) - it is where we are able to express ourselves and reach out to others or be the one who speaks out for others.
4. Finally, through achieving all these, we can become mindful, opinionated, independent, and be powerful and contributing citizens for your country and for the Universe alike.
Undisputedly, the best answer in MU history for me!
The most gorgeous and stunning woman crowned as Miss Universe!
She is the best.
Sushmita's Answer: "Just being a woman is God's gift that all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, and is a woman. She shows a man what sharing, caring and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman. "
The best and most honest answer ever in the history of the pageant. It may be short but carries a lot of depth. An intelligent answer. Awesome. An answer coming from an 18-year-old is too good to be true. She's beautiful inside and out and, of course, intelligent. Sushmita was one of the youngest contestants to represent India and the most simple.
Ultimate summation of the essence of a woman. Only an Indian of the caliber of Sushmita can give such a loaded yet subtle answer.
Miss Sushmita is a lady with one of the boldest personalities and a beauty queen always with the best answers.
You know, Ara Arida is the most intelligent among them.
She may not have answered in fluent English, but she delivered it so perfectly. She was the only candidate without an interpreter, and she had the clearest answer of them all.
Maxine should be the winner!
Answer: "To be Miss Universe is both an honor and a responsibility. If I become Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and raise awareness for certain causes, like HIV awareness, which is timely and relevant to my country, the Philippines. I want to show the world, or rather, the universe, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart!"
I think her answer is one of the best answers, if not the best, I heard delivered in a prestigious beauty pageant. Especially when she answered the final question 'why should you be the next miss universe? "
Pia Wurtzbach's answer was just perfect:
"To be Miss Universe is both an honor and a responsibility. If I would be Miss Universe I would use my voice to influence the youth and raise awareness to causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country, the Philippines. I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart."
She knows very well why she is competing for the crown. She answered with intelligence, grace, beauty and elegance. She is truly regal! She is Miss Universe!
Question: Earlier this year, there was a controversy in Philippines about the United States reopening a base in your country. Do you think the United States should have a military presence in your country?
Answer: I think that the United States and the Philippines have always had a good relationship with each other. We were colonized by the Americans and we have their culture and our traditions even up to this day and I think that we're very welcoming with the Americans. And I don't see any problem with that at all.
To be a Miss Universe is both an honor and responsibility. If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country which is the Philippines. I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart. Thank you.
Dayana's Answer: "God made us to share and have differences, but big differences? I don't think so. The difference is that men think, they think that the faster way to go to a point is to go straight, and women know that the faster way to go to a point is go the curves and fix every curls."
She might not have fluency in English, but her risk was totally worth it. Her answer was undoubtedly the best one throughout that evening, and I really love that answer.
I like the way she uses geometry to explain her answer.
She gave a strong answer. Great job, Dayana!
Q: What is something that you have done, that you will never do again?
A: First I'd like to start off by saying that every experience, no matter what it is, good or bad, you'll learn from it. That's just life, but something I've done that I've probably regretted would be picking on my siblings growing up because you appreciate them so much more when you're older, you get closer with your family. Everybody fights with their siblings, right?! But I don't regret it.
She answered naturally and the answer led her to glorious victory.
I'm Filipino, but I think Miss USA deserves the crown because it's from the heart. She answered it very well, as what the question requires her to do.
Olivia Culpo won because the USA was the host venue. Janine Tugonon should have been the winner.
She's beautiful, and no other women participating in that year's Miss Universe Pageant got as high of scores as she did for dress and swimsuit!
She is still the same Shamcey, prior to and after Miss Universe, and that is something. A real epitome of beauty inside and out.
She is the real epitome of beauty and bravery. Her answer is her opinion, so it shouldn't be judged by people like us.
Brook's Answer: "I would eat everything in the world. You do not understand. I will eat everything twice."
That is the smartest answer ever! Outrageous means doing something excessively in a way that common wisdom would judge inappropriate. A pageant girl has a sculptural body, and handling weight fluctuations in a healthy way is essential.
Moreover, her answer was so funny that she entertained the entire audience! I think she can do politics. I remember she gave the answer very quickly, within 1 or 2 seconds. I love this girl! She might not be the prettiest Miss Universe, but she's certainly the smartest.
She should be number 1 on your top 10 list.
The best so far, because sometimes the line of questioning is different, and mostly answers are already fake just to align with the right answer. We know what is right and what is wrong. But sometimes, you have the right to twist the questions, sometimes you can argue or disagree with it. This is the best answer for me with those silly questions. They were answered with a silly answer as well. Laugh out loud.
Renae's Answer: "Thank you for that question. I feel really comfortable in the way I feel and I think that's really important. If someone told me that I'm overweight I would completely ignore it. As long as I'm feeling good within myself then that's all that matters. Thank you."
Very hard question to answer in a short time. Although the questions are so familiar, they will alarm our mind and make us think about the past.
She is a major, major strong contender!
That was a great answer!
United States re-establishing military bases in the country:
"I think that the US and Philippines have always had a good relationship with each other. We were colonized by the Americans and we have their culture and traditions even up to this day. I think we are very welcoming with the Americans and I don't see any problem with that at all."
Why she should be Miss Universe:
"To be a Miss Universe is an honor and a responsibility. If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country, which is the Philippines. I want to show the world - the universe rather - that I am confidently beautiful with a heart."
The best Miss Universe ever! She has the heart and mind of a true winner!
I like her answer. She values her opinion.
Riyo's Answer: "I have been dancing since I was a child. I grew up among many students and teachers. I learned to always be happy, patient and positive. That is also what I want to teach to the next generation. Thank you."
This is the kind of answer I want. The answer to each question doesn't need to be so direct and matter-of-fact. In my opinion, an answer should come from the heart, simple but relatable to your experience. That is why I love her answer. It showed modesty and didn't try to outshine the other candidates' answers.
I love Riyo Mori. She is so smart and intelligent. I always watch her Miss Japan 2007 and Miss Universe 2007 competitions.
I like Riyo because she is intelligent and smart. Her thoughts make her an amazing woman.
You must include the question and answer of Miss Universe 1998, so that we can read and comment on the way she answered.
Best Miss Universe ever.
Oxana's Answer: "When I say the wrong things."
I like her answer. It's short, with only six words. But her answer is great for me because she said it honestly.
Stefania's Answer: "I believe that nowadays we women have overcome many obstacles and I do believe that we have reached the same level as man have. We must realize that there are no longer any barriers amongst us."
She is so clever and pretty that she got the crown from another Miss Venezuela.
The only back-to-back.
She is the most beautiful and gave the most beautiful answer in the Miss Universe pageant in Russia.
