I collated some write ups that I wrote about the newly proclaimed Miss Universe Philippines Mary Jean Lastimosa. I’m just so ecstatic that she finally made it! I’ve been a fan since her first try in 2011 when she was selected second runner-up and my heart broke with her when she didn’t get past the semifinals in 2012 – this year though, MJ was finally vindicated and my sincerest and heartfelt prayers are for her on her journey in this year’s Miss Universe pageant.
“When she was announced the new Miss Universe Philippines, I feel like crying and hyperventilating! I was shouting for joy at the top of my lungs! Finally, my girl did it and she was rewarded for all her hard work and determination! MJ finally harvested the fruits of her hard labor – it’s been a long and winding road for her but it’s all worth the wait!” – on MJ finally winning Miss Universe Philippines!
“Mary Jean Lastimosa or MJ as she was fondly called never ceases to amaze her fans with her tireless smile in every event of this year’s edition. This is MJ’s third try to win a crown and her perseverance is more impressive than any other repeaters this year. MJ has more competition, no doubt, to win the most coveted crown but I feel that she’s up there and would never let go of what she’s holding on right now without clinching that title. MJ clearly did not diminish as a front runner and she’s bound to finish her last hurrah for the crown, all smile because she knows that after all the heartbreaks and disappointments, she’d still end up successful. After all, she’s still the brightest star in the universe.” – as my top pick for Miss Universe Philippines this year!! Yay!
“She should be more relax and more confident because I know that she can really do it! And this time, I’m hoping that the stars and the whole universe will aligned in her favor!” – upon her application for this year’s pageant.
“I really thought that crowd’s favorite MJ Lastimosa outshined her all through out the evening who is also a repeater of the pageant.” – on her loss at the 2012 Binibining Pilipinas.
“I was so disappointed that she didn’t win the Best In Swimsuit category. I really thought that it was already locked for her. She didn’t give a bad answer during the question and answer portion and her articulation was a-okay but I didn’t feel any confidence from her. She should try next year. Please MJ!” – on not winning the Best in swimsuit during the 2011 Binibining Pilipinas.
Congratulations MJ! Bring home the third Miss Universe crown for the Philippines!!!!
