Miss Universe 2012

The prestigious 2012 Miss Universe was held at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.It was hosted by Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic. As what I expected the event is full of elegance radiating from the contestants, proud spirits from their spectators and excitement is seen even if I was just watching it in the living room of our house. I can even hear the shouts or cheers from our neighbor (proud Filipino as always).

Our own Ms. Philippines, Janine Tugonon, didn't won the crown and title but she swept the world with her own beauty and radiance and even got the 1st runner up place. From the year 2010 up to this year,2012, we've been in the runner up places. I think it would be possible that we can get that crown. But for my personal opinion, it is better that we have a runner-up place in the said beauty contest than nothing. It just show how we, Filipinas, be beautiful in our own ways.
