Miss U.S.A. Wins Miss Universe 2012

Early today, I watched the Miss Universe Pageant via Starworld, and live from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA where Philippines' bet Janine Tugonon placed second to USA's Olivia Culpo. I thought or I would say that most people thought Miss Philippines would take home the crown and among the top 5, she was the clear winner as she nailed the question and answer portion. From my Facebook alone, judging her photos during the preliminary competition, I was pretty much sure that she would make the cut in the top 16 finalists. And yes she did! Janine has a Miriam Quiambao vibe, who was also the first runner up in the 1999 Miss Universe Pageant. This is the third year that Philippines was among the top 5 since 2010 when Venus Raj was fourth runner up, and Shamcey Supsup was third runner up in 2011. Will the Philippines continue the streak in 2013? All of them almost got the crown! Otherwise if they did, we'll have 5 Miss Universe already. Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran were Miss Universe 1969 and 1973 respectively.

Just before watching the pageant and seeing their photos from my Facebook feed, I had a feeling though, that Miss U.S.A. was going to take home the crown.

So Here's the result:

Miss Universe - U.S.A.
Second Place - Philippines
Third Place - Venezuela
Fourth Place - Australia
Fifth Place - Brazil


South Africa

Quarter Finalists


Hope to see next year to have another feat for the Philippines.
