Janine Tugonon wins Miss Universe 2012 1st runner up

With Janine Tugonon's beautiful and excellent answer (see below) to the Twitter question "Should speaking English be a prerequisite to being Miss Universe as an international ambassador?" I really thought she would be crown the Miss Universe 2012. But unfortunately, Miss USA won the said title. It's like a Home Court Advantage. :(

I am dissatisfied but the results are final and the judges have their reasons. So sad to say, we will just have to accept it. Janine wanted to win to give it to Filipinos as a Christmas gift. But it is still okay Janine because for us you are still our winner. We thank you for representing our country and for showing the universe how truly beautiful the Filipinas are. Imagine out of the 89 countries, you are the first runner-up. That's a huge achievement already and we are very proud of you.  A big congratulations to you!

“For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language. It’s being able to influence and inspire other people. So whatever language you have, as long as your heart is to serve and you have a strong mind to show to people, then you can be Miss Universe.”
