Many critics said that it could have been a more glorious moment for the Philippines if Venus Raj presented a more concrete and confident answer to William Baldwin's rather easy question:
What is your biggest mistake in life and what did you do to make it right?
Miss Philippines answered it in all smiles with:
Thank you so much Sir for that wonderful question. You know what Sir, in my 22 years of existence, I can say that there is nothing major major, I mean problem that I have done in my life because I am very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving me. So, thank you so much that I am here, thank you thank you so much.
It isn't easy being on the spotlight so, let us just be proud that after so many years, a Filipina has made her way to the Miss Universe top 5.
