Binibining Pilipinas coronation night was the most talked about topic on social media, on Sunday, June 10.
The top 15 Bb. Pilipinas candidates were all given a chance to speak their mind during the Q&A segment and most of them were able to answer the questions well.
Vickie Rushton, one of the candidates who were part of the top 15, unexpectedly struggled during the Q&A.
She answered a question about mental and physical health, which was asked by the Kapamilya actor, who is Daniel Padilla.
"Why is mental health as important as physical health?" Padilla asked.
At first, Vickie was able to give a few words, however, she was not able to complete her answer.
"Mental health is as important as physical health, because of our inner being. Having self-love is important. As a woman, I can inspire and empower the people to take care of themselves, to take care of their mind as well as their health. They will be as effective."
Some netizens expressed their reactions and some of them got a bit disappointed with her answer.
