Miss Universe Candidates Believe Janine Tugonon is the True Winner

Posted on December 22, 2012 | 5:39 PM

Miss Universe 2012 1st runner-up Janine Tugonon told reporters in a press conference held December 22 for her homecoming that several other candidates believed that she was the true winner of the Miss Universe crown.

Janine Tugonon and Olivia Culpo after the announcement of Miss Universe winner

According to Janine, many candidates came over her to tell that they believe she won the competition shortly after Miss USA Olivia Culpo was crowned Miss Universe on Thursday (Manila time).

"Nakakatuwa nga, halos lahat sila nag-hug, sabi nila, 'It is you, we know it's you, and you know it's you,'" said Janine Tugonon who arrived from Las Vegas early Saturday morning.

"Hindi ko na alam kung sinu-sino, pero madami," she added.

The outcome of the world's most prestigious beauty pageant was met with several "protests" from Filipinos and even foreign supporters of the Pinay beauty queen who couldn't help but make comparison of Janine and Olivia Culpo's performance in the question and answer portion.

Janine's roommate, Miss Indonesia Maria Selena is one of those who said that Janine deserved the crown.

"Si Indonesia, roommates kami eh, and we became very close, and right after the crowning, umiiyak siya, siya pa 'yung umiyak para sa 'kin. Umiyak siya kasi nakapasok nga ako, nagulat din siya sa results, pero sabi niya okay lang naman daw," JanineTugonon said.

Janine, however said that she's satisfied with her first runner-up finish since not many Philippine Miss Universe representatives reach the top 2. She also said that Miss USA might have won because of her spontaneity, beauty and she's already known to the Miss Universe Organization. 

Janine Tugonon's runner-up feat is the best finish of the Philippines in the pageant since 1999 when Miriam Quiambao won first runner-up in the 48th Miss Universe pageant held in Trinidad and Tobago.

Philippines’ bet Janine Tugonon was hailed as the second most beautiful woman in the world after ending as the 1st runner up in the “Miss Universe 2012” pageant aired via satellite from Las Vegas,Nevada on ABS-CBN.

Miss Universe 2012 replay schedule on ABS-CBN and Studio 23

Miss USA Olivia Culpo took home the crown and is about to start her reign as the new “Miss Universe” replacing Angola’s Leila Lopes who won the title last year. Irene Esser Quintero of Venezuela ended up 2nd runner up; Renae Ayris of Australia was third runner up; and Gabriela Markus of Brazil was named 4th runner up.

Janine wowed the judges and the crowd in the swimwear competition with her fabulous figure and signature cobra walk that made her advance to the top ten.

Her elegant pose and unique yet graceful hand gesture also stole the show and stunned viewers in the evening gown portion. Watch the video of the Top 5 final question and answer portion here.

In the question and answer portion, Janine was interrupted by the audience’s applause while answering the final question asked by fashion photographer Nigel Barker: “As an international ambassador, do you believe that speaking English should be a prerequisite to being Miss Universe? Why or why not?”

The Filipina beauty confidently answered, “For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language. It’s being able to influence and inspire other people. As long as your heart wants to serve and you have a strong mind to show to people, then you can be Miss Universe.”

This is the second time the Philippines placed 1st runner-up in the world’s most prestigious pageant after Miriam Quiambao finished 1st runner up and lost the crown to Ms Botswana back in 1999.

To date, the Philippines has only won two Miss Universe titles, the first one in 1969 by Gloria Diaz and the second one in 1973 by Margarita Moran.

Janine is a 23-year old licensed pharmacist and a cum laude graduate of the University of Santo Tomas.

This marks the sixth year since 2007 that the Miss Universe Organization entrusted ABS-CBN as the home of Miss Universe in thePhilippines.

The Philippines' Janine Tugonon placed 1st runner-up, completing three-peat in the Top 5 of Miss Universe. She's just one question away from grabbing that Diamond Nexus crown and we knew she gave one of the best answers from among the Top 5 finalists. Anyhow, her feat elevated the Philippines to the elite club of top 5 three-peaters in the history of Miss Universe: USA, Venezuela and Puerto Rico.

Janine Tugonon was given a Twitter question from judge Nigel Barker: "As an international ambassador, do you believe that speaking English should be a prerequisite to being Miss Universe? Why or why not?"

She answered: "For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language. It's being able to influence and inspire other people. As long as your heart wants to serve and you have a strong mind to show people, then you can be Miss Universe."

Next year, hopefully will be the year for the Philippines to get its 3rd Miss Universe crown. It might be 'U' for the Miss Universe crown as we already had completed the quartet of Q-R-S-T placement in the said pageant.

Miss Universe 2012 Airs Live Via Satellite on ABS-CBN, Janine Tugonon a Favorite to Win the Crown

The most beautiful woman in the Philippines, Janine Tugonon, vies to become the most beautiful woman in the universe as she competes in the annual “Miss Universe” pageant in Las Vegas, USA airing live via satellite this Thursday (Dec 20), 9:30 AM on ABS-CBN.


After Shamcey Supsup’s 3rd runner-up finish last year, the whole country definitely has high hopes that Janine will take home the crown this year.

Janine Tugonon's bid in Miss Universe 2012 airs live via satellite on ABS-CBN at 9:30 am after Kris TV

Pageant fans are raving about Janine online as she rocked the preliminaries and conquered the stage with her signature “cobra walk” wearing her evening gown, swimwear, and national costume. Many believe Janine is a strong competitor and has a very big chance on winning the title.

According to pageant expert Noel Berioso of OPMB Worldwide, an accredited online Philippine pageant site by the Miss Universe Organization to cover the “Miss Universe 2012,” Janine is surely one of the favorites this year after she got handpicked to participate in various pre-pageant activities among 88 other gorgeous women from different parts of the world.

Berioso cited that Janine was chosen to join Ms Cayman Islands in a special photoshoot for hair sponsor CHI; be part of the kids fundraise and the Jubilee theater tour in The Bally’s Las Vegas; and just recently, talk about the “Miss Universe” benefit auction with Miss USA in an interview with Fox television.

International pageant website GlobalBeauties.com also chose Janine as the top pick among Asian candidates this year and is one of their predicted top five countries in the competition.

Since the pageant is delayed this year compared to the previous years, Janine has more time to prepare herself in every aspect making her more fit to compete for the crown.

But amidst speculations, in the end, Janine’s fate still lies in the hands of the judges that includes singer-songwriter CeeLo Green, world series champion and MVP Pablo Sandoval, photographer Nigel Barker, singer-actor Diego Boneta, TV personality Scott Disick, celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, award-winning chef Masaharu Morimoto, Miss Universe 2012 Ximena Navarrete, Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, and TV star Lisa Vanderpump.

Meanwhile, Miss Universe 2011 3rd runner up Shamcey Supsup also took part in this year’s activities as she served as backstage and web host for the pageant.

This marks the sixth year since 2007 that the Miss Universe Organization entrusted ABS-CBN as the home of Miss Universe in the Philippines.

Don’t miss the most beautiful day in the universe happen once more on ABS-CBN this Thursday (Dec 20) in the live via satellite airing of “Miss Universe 2012,” 9:30 AM, after “Kris TV.”

Step 1: Go to Janine Tugonon’s official page at the Miss Universe website.
Step 2: Click on "vote" below her profile.
Step 3: Enter your first name, last name, e-mail address and code. Check the “I am at least 13 years old and accept the vote rules” box.
Step 4: Click "submit." You can vote ten times a day per e-mail address.

It's that simple. The online voting will be held until December 18, a day before the coronation night.

As what Janine said, she will give it her all, but she can’t win the crown on her own. She needed our prayers and support. Let us unite once again and show the world what Filipinos can do.
