MANILA, Philippines — Legislators on Thursday said that Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon deserved more than the first runner-up spot in the Miss Universe pageant.

“She totally deserved to win. She nailed the final question and she’s the most beautiful,” said Marikina City Representative Miro Quimbo who also asked “why do we always fall short?”

This was echoed by Cibac Partylist Representative Sherwin Tugna who said he was sad that Tugonon won first runner-up when she should have won more. “Nevertheless, we are so proud of her. She exemplifies the Filipina beauty and intelligence.”

Aurora Representative Juan Edgardo Angara said that what Tugonon showed during the pageant was that “Pinays are not just pretty but also smart and witty.”

“She is the latest in a string of beautiful and bright Pinays to make us proud,” he said.
