Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Preliminary Interviews: "In Whose Eyes Are You Beautiful?"
Here's the full transcript of the delegates' answers to the question: "If beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, in whose eyes are you beautiful?"
Miss Universe Philippines 2021’s nerve-racking Preliminary Interview round is over; it was live-streamed on KTX on September 24. The delegates are a step closer to the coronation night that’s scheduled to take place in the province of Bohol on September 30.
After modeling their national costumes, the delegates’ wisdom, spontaneity, and grace under pressure were then showcased at the preliminary interviews that had each of them answering five questions一one of which was courtesy of a pageant sponsor, Lazada.
The people behind the organization and the panel of judges first asked them the following questions: 1) What’s the most important lesson you learned in the past week?; 2) If beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, in whose eyes are you beautiful?; 3) If we truly learn from our mistakes, would you advise a young person to keep making them?; 4) If you have the power to do ONE of the following一eliminate poverty or hunger, a government with no graft and corruption, or solve all environmental problems一which would you choose?; and 5) If you were to add to cart one item to buy on Lazada to send to all Filipinos to help inspire them during this time, what would it be and why?
