Shamcey Supsup decided to answer the question in English without an interpreter, during the 60th Miss Universe pageant.
The candidates were given a time limit in answering the question, so she would find it hard if she would have an interpreter.
People also thought that the Miss Universe 3rd runner-up should have gotten plus points for answering her question without the need for an interpreter.
Supsup stated that we Filipinos should learn to accept the decision of the judges because there were selected judges to select who would win. Although she’s honored that people think that she deserves to have won the crown as Miss Universe.
She also believes that Miss Angola, Leila Lopes deserves the title as Miss Universe and we should support and be happy for her.
Supsup is now in Los Angeles to spend time with her mother. She will return to the Philippines on September 16.
