Binibining Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon has gotten herself into hot water after making a comment on Bb. Pilipinas candidate Catriona Gray's answer during a Q&A.
According to some netizens, since Mariel did not enter the Top 15 of the Miss International pageant last year, she should just keep her comments to herself.
Based on the video uploaded by an Instagram account under the handle of @misssphilippines, Catriona Gray was seen explaining what her strengths are.
"My strength is that I’m an empathetic.
"I feel everything very strongly, and I find that when I sing through music, it helps me connect to people…"
After this, Mariel made a comment about her answer, saying that she feels it's a bit "scripted," which Fashion Pulis reported.
"I really love your confidence and the way you speak, but sometimes it seems just a tiny bit scripted."

However, some netizens didn't like Mariel's comment regarding Catriona's answer.
Read some of the comments from netizens below:
"My gaaad Mariel. Palibhasa dka naging crowd favorite. Palibhasa, yang bibig mo hindi gaya sa reyna namen. May nauwe ka bang korona? Wag na umimik."
"Mariel thank you for showing the real you! And showing your insecurity! Keep it up girl kakatawa"
"Bravo!! Pakitanong Kay mariel kong anong korona nadala nya pauwi!! Ipokrita tlga balahura na yan!! Hiyang hiya nmn ako sa katalinuhan moh!! @mariaangelicadl kaya pala bigat nang korona moh dala pauwi ano? Ang talino moh bes.."
"She probably also thinks Pias winning answer was scripted . @mariaangelicadl being the worst performer of her batch, who turns off her comment section because she cannot take criticism herself, should be the last person giving Cat advice on how to be a beauty queen. Mariels performance at Miss International was so poor, I was embarassed she represented Philppines. Mariel has an aura of a spoiled brat."
"Mariel shut up... Mas scripted pa yata ung mga hanash mo sa social media accounts mo para lang mapag-usapan ka. Cat don’t need to do so much efforts than you."
"sana instead of saying scripted sinabi na lang nya “too rehearsed”, kase when you say scripted it means na hindi genuine or fake I think nasabi nya yun kase sobrang articulate si catriona to the point na aakalain mong kabisado na nya mga sagot nya."
Meanwhile, some netizens agree with Mariel's comment.
Read their comments below:
"I agree with Mariel. Just that.. too perfect."
"Well guys let’s be honest, she’s right!!! No bad feelings here"
"Ok naman ung comment ni Mariel.. I love them both. It's going to help Catriona din naman."
