Binibini Sandra Lemonon reacted to a basher.
Days after the grand coronation night of the Binibining Pilipinas Pageant held last March 18, Ms. Lemonon went to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to personally ask about the Build Build Build program.
DOTr and DPWH willingly accommodated her on March 22.
Ms. Lemonon's answer during the pageant was a subject of controversy when she admitted that she has no idea about the program.
In a post by the DOTr Facebook page, Ms. Lemonon was seen talking to the officers of the government agency including DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade.
In this post, a netizen commented, "What is beauty without brain?"
DOTr defended her and said, "She speaks four languages. Filipino, English, French, and Portuguese. Empty pa rin po brain?"
Sandra answered to her bashers using her Facebook account.
She wrote, "Good evening po! I am sorry but i have to disagree with you.
"There is a brain behind this so called 'beauty' & And most importantly a good heart
"This is why I decided to educate myself about it instead of remaining ignorant.
"I can admit that I do not know everything in this world but I am willing to learn as much I can.
"After all I will forever remain a student of life."
Sandra Lemonon may have failed to take home a crown from the Binibining Pilipinas competition, but she's earned the admiration of many pageant fans and viewers for her honest answer.
Lemonon became the subject of memes and online debate for her response to being asked for her insights on the government's "Build, Build, Build" program.
The Binibining Pilipinas contestant who had no idea about the topic honestly answered the question. "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."
In an interview with ABS- CBN, the contestant said she did not regret giving the answer and is thankful for the warm messages she received because of her honesty.
Sandra Lemonon also said she misheard the question. She heard Bill, bill, bill instead of build, build, build.
Binibining Pilipinas is a national beauty pageant in the Philippines that selects Filipina representatives to compete in two of the Big Four major international beauty pageants such as Miss Universe and Miss International.
The pageant also fields four queens to other minor international pageants such as Miss Supranational, Miss Intercontinental, Miss Grand International and Miss Globe.
The national director of the Philippines is Stella Araneta, former Miss Colombia and Miss International titleholder, and Cochitina Sevilla, an entrepreneur as co-chairwoman.
