Venus Raj, Almost A Miss Universe?
August 24, 2010 8:32am CST
She was the last to be called and entered the top five of the prestigious Miss Universe Contest held in Las Vegas, Nevada this Monday night (Tuesday morning in the Philippines). As I look at it, the only reason why she didn't win a crown is her answer in the question-and-answer portion. But we cannot blame her for this, because it is very tough just to stand in front of a live worldwide audience. But things should be different if she just answered it more elaborately. Well what do you thing?

Yes.., you are right.. I had my hopes high on Venus Raj.., If she had answered the question more elaborately and used her wit.., she could have won the crown this year.., But I cannot blame her.., She was really nervous.., with the"major, major" crownd in front of her.., =) But it's okay.. I'm still proud she made it to top 5..=)

Yes, you are absolutely right i watched it in the You tube only and as I listened to her response to the question it is just a simple major major whatever for the love of the family but I do believed she elaborate and give even a simple example like it is not good to lie because it it would bring other people's life and just speak the truth for the truth will set you free.... like what happened to her in the Binibining Pilipinas for sure she will be the one to win that Crown.

Even though she did not won the title, she is among the top 5 and I think that is impressive enough. I think next time, candidates should be trained to answer questions or talk openly while in front of a crowd. They should be told to answer questions like they were just being interviewed by somebody they know. Repeat over and over until they get the hang of it until it comes out naturally and this also builds up self-confidence. Just look at the archived interview of Gloria Diaz, how she impressed the judges and the crowd with her snappy remarks.
