MARGIE MORAN was asked during the 1973 Miss Universe Contest: “What’s the difference between being Miss Universe and being a Filipina?” Her reply: “Being Miss Universe is like having a birthstone, you may lose it. Being a Filipina is like having a birthmark, its forever.”
CHARLENE GONZALES was asked during the 1994 Miss Universe Contest: “How many islands are there in the Philippines?” Her reply: “High tide or low tide?”
RUFFA GUTIERREZ at the 1993 Miss World Contest: “How would you tell a girl who’s suffering from low self-esteem to feel better about herself? “Her reply: “I’ll tell her to believe in herself because it’s not only physical beauty that’s important but also inner beauty. Like what the Little Prince said, “What is essential is invisible to the naked eye.” And I believe that character and personality are more important than physical beauty.”
MARIA ISABEL LOPEZ at the Bb. Pilipinas Pageant was asked by one of the judges, Rita Gomez:
RITA: Here’s your question, hija: Are you still a virgin?
MARIA ISABEL: If I say I still am, can I bring home the crown tonight?
RITA: Good answer!
MARIA ISABEL: What about you Ma’am, are you still a virgin?
RITA: Hija, I have 5 children with 5 different fathers, and what do you call that, Immaculate Conception???
MPULE KWELAGOBE (Miss Botswana) at the 1999 Miss Universe Contest and beating Miss Philippines Miriam Quiambao: “Should Miss Universe be allowed to keep her crown if she became pregnant? “Her reply: “Personally, I think it should not in any way interrupt her duties. She should be allowed to celebrate her femininity.”
SUSHMITA SEN (Miss India) at the 1994 Miss Universe Contest: “What’s the essence of being a woman? “Her reply: “Just being a woman is God’s gift. The origin of a child is a mother, a woman. Woman is sharing, she shows a man what sharing, caring, and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman.”
ANNA THERESA LICAROS at the 2007 Bb. Pilipinas Pageant: “Who are you going to choose? The crown or the lover of your life? “Her reply: “That’s a very tough question, I am being put on the spot but if I had to choose, I think I would have to choose the crown. Precisely because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I believe that I would be able to reach out and touch more people to be of greater service, should I achieve the crown and I am very confident that my love life will be there once the crown is no longer on my head and I’ve passed it on, Thank you.”
GLORIA DIAZ at 1969 Miss Universe Contest: “If the man from the moon landed in your hometown, what would you do to entertain him? “Her reply: “I guess since he has been in the moon so long, he would enjoy anything that an ordinary man would.”
Miss Universe judge Viveca Fox asked Shamcey if she would change her religion to marry the one she loves. “Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why or why not?”
“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,” Supsup replied.
