With almost nine days left before the Ms. Universe 2011 Grand Coronation in Brazil, Filipinos are encouraged to vote for Shamcey Supsup. For the first time, I did vote for her online haha. Who knows, she might win the internet poll and might advance to the top 15 and who knows, maybe from there she will also make a repeat of what Venus achieved last year or even better right?
Anyway, I found a clip of Shamcey's web interview. Admit it or not, people's expectations on her is quite high because:
1. her predecessor was 2010 Ms. Universe 4th Runner-Up Venus Raj
2. she graduated Magna Cum Laude from UP Diliman
3. she was the topnotcher in the architecture board exam
The expectations of her bringing home the crown is higher because of reasons 2 and 3. I mean, being compared with Venus' achievement in the pageant a year ago was already something big but because she's supposedly smarter than her predecessor because of her academic records, Filipinos expect her to use her wit and intellect in the pageant. Well, let's just hope and pray that she will be blessed. I mean, there were UPD graduates who joined the pageant like Nina Ricci Alagao and Zoraida Andam who is now a lawyer but then they failed to bring home the crown although they did fight a good battle out there. Let's just hope for the best that lady luck will also be on her side because it does not guarantee that good looks and intellect will make you win the crown. You have to admit that at some point, you need luck to be noticed by the judges that you have what it takes to be the next Ms. Universe 2011. Yes, talk about x-factor. Okay enough of the talk, here's Shamcey's web interview:
I like how she answered the questions spontaneously. Plus her answers made sense don't you just agree? Her smartness is actually evident on how she answered the first question although she chose not to go too technical or nerdy in explaining why she thinks there is life on other planets. She has a point right? There is a possibility that life exists in other dimensions or galaxies. I also love how she answered the advantage of women over men. The giveaway answer to that question is women's ability to bear a child but she gave a very unique answer- woman's intuition is always right (okay maybe 98% percent true).
And here's Venus' web interview from last year. She's also spontaneous with her answers but it's not as smart as Shamcey's. Or maybe it's because of the questions given that time. Anyway, I just loved the interview questions last year especially when the candidates where asked to imitate the sounds of lion, cow, starting engine, and robot. Nevertheless, Venus really made the Filipinos proud of her achievement despite the major major criticisms on her.
Her imitation of a cow's sound is too weird though haha!
Anyway, good luck to Shamcey Supsup.
