Bakit na-challenge si 2021 Bb. Pilipinas International Hannah Arnold sa swimsuit competition?
NA-CHALLENGE at na-pressure pala nang bonggang-bongga si 2021 Binibining Pilipinas International Hannah Arnold sa swimsuit competition ng nabanggit na national pageant.
Inamin ng Pinay beautuy queen na isang napakalaking hamon para sa kanya ang magsuot ng skimpy swimwear on national television na mapapanood ng napakaraming tao.
Sa pakikipagchikahan ni Hannah kay G3 San Diego sa latest YouTube vlog nito ay natanong ang dalaga kung paano niya ia-assess ang naging performance niya sa grand coronation night ng 2021 Binibining Pilipinas pageant na nagbigay sa kanya ng korona at titulong Bb. Pilipinas International.
“In my rehearsals, in my trainings, there were times where I would stumble. But my trainer, he really taught me that you just have to keep on going. Don’t let it show in your face.
“I think I was able to continue smiling. I was like, ‘It’s okay, maybe the judges are just looking at the gown. They won’t notice that,’” pahayag ni Hannah.
“Actually a lot of people told me that in the moment, they didn’t notice the little stumble but then, because I mentioned it and they rewatched it, that’s when they saw it.
“I have seen comments where they said, ‘Oh you obviously did not practice it enough.’ But that’s the thing. You never know in the moment how exactly it will come out. But I am just so happy, I am so glad everyone loves the gown,” pag-amin pa niya.
At tungkol nga sa pagrampa niya sa swimsuit competition, “I think if you will look at my social media, I honestly don’t really post many swimsuit pictures.
“I think I was always quite conservative growing up. Not that it was bawal or anything. I just didn’t want to expose too much,” paliwanag ng dalaga.
Happy din daw siya sa naging sagot niya sa Q&A portion, ikinumpara pa nga niya ito sa naging performance niya noong sumali siya sa Bb. Pilipinas 2019 kung saan umabot lang siya sa pagiging isa sa mga finalist.
“During that time, I was so nervous. With the audience, sometimes they can be a little unforgiving. So I was worried that they weren’t going to like my answer.
“So in the moment in 2019, I did laugh at myself to save the pain of maybe the audience laughing at me. Unfortunately, it changed the mood of my answer that it didn’t sound so serious. I was just so nervous,” chika ng dalaga.
“I am so grateful that the question I was given, we have discussed freedom of speech and how important it is in our democratic country. That just came to my mind right away.
“However, when you’re there in the moment, 30 seconds, it is so hard to think of a punchline. So I just pushed and kept on going and I just hoped that I had given some sort of message,” aniya pa.
Hindi man daw saktung-sakto sa tanong ng judge na si Pinky Webb ang naging sagot niya, natutuwa na rin siya na nagustuhan ng veteran broadcast journalist ang answer niya.
“I heard from Tito Boy (Abunda) and Pinky Webb they liked my answer so I am grateful for that, that I was able to give a call for action in some way,” sey ni Hannah.
Bilang 2021 Bb. Pilipinas International rarampa si Hannah bilang representative ng bansa sa Miss International pageant na gaganapin sa Japan sa darating na November.
Naniniwala naman ang dalaga na may sapat pang panahon para paghandaan ang kanyang laban, “I am hoping that one of the reasons I was given this title is my personality. I am hoping that I won’t need to change too much. I will just need to focus on pasarela, preparing the outfits and preparing an amazing speech if I am lucky enough to be one of the finalists to present that.
“I think we have enough time. Ate Sam Bernardo, earlier this year when she competed in Miss Grand International, she prepared in two weeks. So I think we can do it,” lahad pa ni Hannah.
May anim na Miss International crown na ang Pilipinas, ang huling nakapag-uwi ng titulo ay si Kylie Verzosa noong 2016.
