Maxine Medina on Being Herself: Got an Interpreter but Bravely Speaks in English

Maxine Medina





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Miss Philippines did a good job representing the country. Never mind not making it in the top three of the 65th Miss Universe pageant. She is under a lot of pressure as the host country and the bashes over social media. In the end, she stands on her ground. She gets an interpreter but answers in English. That’s how she is – a woman who faces her fears!

[VIDEO]: MAXINE Medina apologizes to the public after she made an erroneous remark that former first lady Imelda Marcos supposedly “invented” the traditional Filipino Terno.



Advises of Beauty Queens

1969 Miss Universe Gloria Diaz advises Medina to get an interpreter. This is for her to express herself well in the question and answer portion. 1973 Miss Universe Margie Moran leaves it to destiny to win the crown. There’s no formula for it but gives credit to Medina for improving a lot after going through the stages of the competition.

2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach’s advice is for her to be calm and think that she is with her all the way.  Medina opted to be herself with considerations of the other pointers as what her aunt, former Miss Universe Philippines 1990 Gem Padilla-Thomas told her.



Bashing on Imelda Marcos’ Terno

Maxine Medina is definitely not a history or communications expert but she is honest and speaks her mind on what she knows. In her own special way. former First Lady Imelda Marcos “re-invents” the elegantly beautiful Filipiniana gown version of the original Terno. She popularizes the enhanced Terno by wearing it proudly in relevant events. Various matching styles with the “Iron Butterfly” sleeves are displayed. Since it is really Marcos who is associated with the distinctive Butterfly sleeves, who can blame Maxine Medina for giving her credit? Only the politically biased people cannot accept this fact.

Not a Bad Answer

The many people that join together in unity for one great event like the Miss Universe pageant is indeed an important event but not quite a big change. That’s Medina’s view – but some people think that she needs a somewhat controversial answer to excel in the pageant. Like President Rodrigo Duterte’s victory perhaps and his verbal attacks against former President Barrack Obama and the United Nations who are condemning his war on drugs? It can also be when the Americans voted for a black man during Obama’s time for the first time?

Look at the Bright Side

Medina is breathtaking in her gown, the two-piece, and national costume. Miss USA and Miss Kenya both have strong and inspiring answers to every question thrown at them – but like Medina, they are not included in the top three. This time, destiny’s choice is Miss France.

  1. I reviewed the answer of Maxine and theres nothing wrong with it. As a Filipino lets unite and be happy with our achivements. Maxine did her best. She is a perfect package. Be proud everything happens for a reason.

  2. As far as Maxine is concerned in her joining the contest she did her best. She made the necessary preparations and listened to the advice of the former Ms. Universe. She experienced a lot of pressure through the bashing or negative comments of other kababayans. Sana naman naging positive ang mga comments nila para naman na inspire si Maxine.
