Maxine Medina Would Have Been the First Filipina Beauty Queen to Have an Interpreter

Maxine Medina ended her Miss Universe journey on January 30.

She failed to make it to the Top 3 of the international beauty contest.

The three finalists in the pageant are from Colombia, France and Haiti.

Medina, a model and interior designer wishes to get a back-to-back victory even as the pageant is held in her own country.

Her predecessor, Filipina-German Pia Wurtzbach, was crowned Miss Universe in 2015.

Meanwhile, Maxine confirmed yesterday that an interpreter would be on stand-by for her during the finals of the 65th Miss Universe beauty pageant.

She said she would have an interpreter just in case she would make it to the question-and-answer portion of the beauty contest.

Pageant fans have been encouraging the beauty queen to use an interpreter during the finals to boost her chances of winning the back-to-back crown for the Philippines.

Should Medina push through with the plan, she would be the first Filipino beauty queen to use an interpreter.
