Miss Universe – Philippines 2019 Gazini Ganados grew up under her grandparents’ care. Even now that her Lolo and Lola have passed away, Gazini still remembers them as her inspiration. In fact, she offers her crown to her late grandma. “I promised her that I would give honor to her, not just the flowers that I win in pageants but the crown itself,” Gazini says as she talks about her beloved Lola.
If Gazini has the chance to deliver a message for her grandparents in heaven, she’d tell them she misses them so much. “I hope they’re okay in heaven,” Gazini utters in Bisaya dialect.
Aside from the physical attributes and queenly movements, another crucial factor that determines a Miss Universe potential is a candidate’s ability to impress the audiences with her wit via Question and Answer portion.
While there are supporters who do not have even a pinch of doubt over Gazini’s capabilities, there are also detractors who say Gazini failed to give an excellent answer in the Binibining Pilipinas 2019 Q and A round.
“I appreciate the criticism and I know there are still so much to learn and improve within myself. The first step is accepting it,” Gazini’s reaction to her bashers’ claims. Although, Gazini finds it offensive when the critics go over the belt, adding that she desires for everyone’s unity as her battle in Miss Universe is not for her personal gains but for the Philippine’s pride rather.
