Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon 1st runner up in Miss Universe 2012

Miss Philippines almost brought home the bacon when she landed 2nd place in the recently held Miss Universe 2012 Pageant. Miss USA Olivia Culpo took home the Miss Universe 2012 crown during the pageant that took place at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Here are the winners according to place:

Miss Philippines (Janine Tugonon)           - 1st runner-up
Miss Venezuela (Irene Sofia Esser Quintero)      - 2nd runner-up
Miss Australia (Renae Ayris)                            - 3rd runner-up
MissBrazil (Gabriela Markus)                           - 4th runner-up

Completing the Top 10 are Miss France, Miss Hungary, Miss South Africa, Miss Mexico, and Miss Russia.

Although our country did not get the crown for this year, 1st runner is still the best place to land. Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon, was the only Asian candidate who made it to the Top 10. She was wearing a powder blue gown by Alfredo Barraza  and Janine answered fashion photographer judge Nigel Barker's Twitter question during the Q & A portion.

Question:  "Should speaking English be a prerequisite to being Miss Universe as an international ambassador?"

Answer:  “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. So whatever language you have, as long as your heart is to serve and you have a strong mind to show to people, then you can be Miss Universe."

It could have been a winning moment for her, but hey, she still won right? Because she won the hearts of everyone! =)

Congratulations Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon
Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner Up!!! =D
