The country’s bet Maxine Medina on Monday responded to the question and answer portion in English as she landed in the top six of the Miss Universe main competition.
Maxine was asked by host Steve Harvey: What is the most significant event in the past decade?
Despite her earlier promise to speak in Pilipino if she found it difficult articulating in English, Maxine said it was the Miss Universe pageant that made a mark in her lifetime.
“In the last 10 years of being here in the world, I saw that all the people bring in one event like this Miss Universe. And it’s something big to us, that we are one as one nation, that we are all together,” Maxine said. CBB
