Gazini 50-50 sa Miss U – Gloria Diaz
May 50-50 ang chance na manalo ng korona ang ibinigay ni Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz sa ating Philippine representative na si Gazini Ganados.
Ayon kay Gloria, hindi raw naiiba ang Miss Universe sa mga sports events tulad ng Southeast Asian Games. May panalo at may talo.
“Beauty contests are a rat race. Either you win or you lose. So, 50-50.
“You know, we are too ambitious. After Pia (Wurtzbach) and Catriona (Gray) won, we want more, we want something more,” diretsang pahayag ni Gloria.
During the Bb. Pilipinas pageant, si Gazini raw ang naging choice niyang manalo.
“Yes, Gazini was my choice. But you know, they change after winning, nagbabago sila, they improve, and I wish I could take a closer look at her now.
“Like me when I joined Netflix, I thought I couldn’t give justice to the role but I did. All it takes is palakasan ng loob and pakapalan ng mukha. Feel that you are a winner and make sure that nobody gets in front of you. And make lots of friends,” ngiti pa ni Gloria.
Simple lang ang sinabi ni Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran on Gazini:
“Everyone has an equal chance. It all depends on the judges.”
Todo suporta naman si Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach kay Gazini.
“She visited me at home and I showed her DVD copies of Miss U pageants. Dami ko kasing collection and I have watched them as part of my training before I competed in Las Vegas. From the tapes, I think Gazini got several pointers.” (Ruel Mendoza)
