  1. the pageant requires beauty and posture not the answer!!! theres so much beautiful on the said event but why she? expect no awards she will get,,on ms Unvrse stil wer drought ths year i hope she can make it,,,

  2. sory 4 this ms unvrse seeks frst the exotic beauty of the cnddtes and the way she classified.and i thnk she cnnot mke it hope evrybdy will know this!!!!!!!!

  3. someone mocked up Jennifer's answer. this is not what she really said that night. i personally think she deserves the crown. she's not "magaslaw", not trying hard to wave and walk and i can trully say that she's elegant. plus her good personality and being Christian will even boost her great looks. feel so sorry for her detractors... you guys have so many insecurities in your hearts, i pity you.. perhaps you should consult a psychiatrist or seek an advice from a priest/pastor and try to change your damn attitudes toward a great person who hasn't done anything wrong but to fulfill her dream without jeopardizing anyone. SERIOUSLY, JENNIFER DESERVES IT!!! and so does number 2!

  4. jennifer barrientos is the most kind-hearted down-to-earth and humble person anyone can ever know. her answer is the best and real answer i've heard so far... she doesnt try too hard, she doesnt brag and most of all she values life being a Christian. you certainly dont know jennifer but being her friend, and being in the same volleyball team, she was a perfect captain leading us in everyway.. i bet you she will bring pride to the Philippines wen she goes to vietnam and i will be the first one to laugh at u if you stil think she doesnt deserve it. she's got both Beauty and Brains and for that i am proud to be her friend.. :) - riokristine -

  10. Our country should send someone Marian Rivera! She's very beautiful and she has that child- like charm and carefree attitude that set Miss universe 2007 Riyo Mori apart from the others.
