Binibining Pilipinas International 2019 Patch Magtanong gamely took on the TWBA Fast Talk Challenge in where she displayed true grace under pressure. She mentioned confidence as the most essential thing that a woman must possess. “Women find out everything, so don’t lie,” her response when asked about one thing every man should know about women.
A Bataan native, Patch recommended the Corregidor Island and the historical Mt. Samat as the place’s must-visit spots. She described her future boyfriend as funny, smart, and kind. Patch would like to go into public service once her reign ends.
“Ako si Patch Magtanong at ako ang inyong Miss International 2019,” she confidently declared.
In her TWBA guesting, Patch talked about the netizens’ claims that she deserves the Miss Universe crown more. While Patch admitted the Miss Universe crown is her main goal, she is still content with her award. “I did want the Miss Universe crown. It’s what I worked for. It’s what I had my eyes on and it’s what I prayed for but everything happens for a reason,” she related.
Patch also shared the dilemma she has gone through while juggling her dreams of becoming a beauty queen and a lawyer. She even almost gave up her pageant dreams in fear of losing the chance to pass the Bar Examinations amid her trainings. But then again, Patch found the right kind of fuel that drove her into pursuing both dreams at the same time.
Patch is starting to prepare for the Miss International grand coronation night on November 17 in Tokyo, Japan by doing research about the place and its culture.
