- Binibining Pilipinas finalist Sandra Lemonon’s statement during the Q&A portion became viral immediately after the pageant
- When asked about the government’s “Build, build, build” program, Sandra admitted she doesnt have much to say about the issue
- Two days after the new queens were crowned, Sandra faced the media and gave her much awaited answer
The Question and Answer portion of Binibining Pilipinas has definitely come a long way. This year’s pageant did not only focus on the physical attributes of the candidates, it also highlighted their social awareness—or lack thereof.
Binibini Sandra Lemonon became the subject of memes and became viral on social media after she failed to answer the question she picked from the magic bowl of questions.
Megawide Construction Corp. chairman Edgar Saavedra, Lemonon was asked for her insights on the Duterte administration's "Build, Build, Build" program.
Unfortunately, she was too honest to admit she’s not very familiar with the issue.
“Actually you know what, I studied so much for this Q&A, but sadly that's something that I don't know really much about. But at least I'm here trying to answer a good question. Thank you."
Two days after the new queens were crowned, Sandra faced the media and gave her much awaited answer, this time having studied the program closely.
“Of course! Yes, I'm pro building infrastructure. Who isn't? It's about time! How are going to get our economy better without this? It's about time!,” Sandra confidently expressed.
Sandra also expressed her gratitude to the netizens, after receiving lots of praise and admiration for her honesty and transparency.
Instead of being bashed and mocked, commenters said that it was best to admit you’re not sure of something instead of pretending.
“I'm not known on Instagram; I only had 4,000 followers. And now, I have 10,000 followers and that's crazy!" she said.
“I'm so happy that this happened," Sandra added. “I do not regret anything, because in the end, at least now everyone knows what the 'Build, Build, Build' program is! I know what it is, everyone else who didn't know what it was, now they know."
Sandra was part of the top performers and early favorites of the crowd before being eliminated after the Q and A portion of the program.
