PH Miss Universe 2012 Bet Shines In Pre-Pageant Q&A

The finals night of the Miss Universe pageant this year will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on Dec. 19 but Philippine bet Janine Tugonon seems to be shining already based on the dry-run of the final question-and-answer portion as seen in a pre-pageant video released online.

Her solo Q&A video, along with those of the other contestants', were posted by user OfficialMissUniverse on the social networking site YouTube on Dec. 8.

With the description: "Get to know the contestants of 2012 MISS UNIVERSE® Pageant," each contestant's video, where they are shown answering three questions, runs for more than a minute. As of this writing, Tugonon's video already has more than 130,000 views, far ahead of the rest of the contestants.

Wearing a leopard top, Tugonon was initially asked about her favorite holiday traditions.

"Our family tradition is very simple, very fun, happy, because the whole family gathers in our house and we will just gonna eat, gonna dance and gonna sing together," the 23-year-old Tugonon said, adding that she misses going to such gatherings.

Described on her Miss Universe profile page as one who possesses an "adventurous spirit," the morena beauty also related her "most interesting dating experience" - and that is riding a cab whose driver ended up almost shooting another driver following a chase.

Asked what "crazy thing" she'd do if the "world was going to end tomorrow," she said, "I'll probably eat a lot. If it's end of the world, I would probably just go out and eat with my family and the people I love."

So far, the Philippines has produced two Miss Universe titlists in Gloria Diaz (1969) and Margie Moran (1973).
