- Jonas Gaffud spoke up regarding the result of Binibining Pilipinas 2019
- He specifically opened up about the misfortune of Vickie Rushton in the pageant
- The beauty queen maker believed that Vickie should have won a crown
Jonas Gaffud, a former beauty queen trainer and now the creative director of Miss Universe Philippines, has finally given his honest opinion about the misfortune of Vickie Rushton in Binibining Pilipinas 2019.
KAMI learned that the latter once again tried her luck in the prestigious pageant but she failed to win a crown after being unable to impress the judges with her answer in the final round.
The loss of Vickie became trending in the online world, especially because she was the heavy favorite before the Coronation Night and she received a lot of awards during the event.
For Jonas, the former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate deserved to win a title and bring home a crown, considering her overall performance in the pageant.
He claimed that the beauty queen performed well throughout the competition and that she must have been given a crown despite her not-so-impressive answer.
“Well, actually, tinanong ko rin ‘yun. Sana kahit ganoon ang pagkasagot niya, kung ako lang, ha, basing on her performance parang sana may crown pa rin,” he quipped in a report by Inquirer.net.
“Pero siyempre hindi natin alam ang takbo ng isip ng judges. We have to respect that,” he added.
Meanwhile, Jonas recognized the fact that the Question And Answer round is the most crucial part of any pageant because it will dictate the fate of a candidate.
He also expressed that before a beauty queen can qualify to the said portion, she must have stood out during the other parts of the contest.
“We always tell na the Q and A will make or break you. Despite all the awards, despite the catwalk, the Q and A is very crucial,” he stressed.
“Pero siyempre bago ka makapasok sa Q and A, dapat magaling at maganda ka naman,” he concluded.
In a previous article by KAMI, the reason of Vickie for not answering well at Binibining Pilipinas irked netizens.
Vickie Marie Rushton is a Filipino beauty queen and model, who is also the girlfriend of actor Jason Abalos. She already joined Binibining Pilipinas in 2018 and she bagged the First runner-up honor.
