The Mutya ng Dabaw Prepageant held on February 28, 2012 was an atypical type of pageant compared to the ones that we usually see. First, there was no live introduction from the candidates themselves. There was a VTR for the intro but we know that videos can be edited. And yes, the hosts introduced the candidates but their intro was biased. Not enough information was given to other candidates and other candidates' introduction were exaggerated. From there, we, audience, already knew whose going to get the 5 spots. Moving on, the pageant had no question and answer portion which is the essence of every pageant. Yes, we heard there was a closed door interview however how are we, audience, going to get to know the candidates if during the whole pageant, ALL OF THE CANDIDATES NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO TALK (except those who were given special awards). Are they hiding something? We felt they were greedy and kept the candidates away from us. This was the weirdest pageant I ever saw considering THERE WAS NO ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE CRITERIA FOR JUDGING. How are we going to know what are they looking for? Ah, one judge was asked and she said she was looking for x factor but there was no concrete breakdown for the judging. They must take into proper consideration beauty, confidence, poise, and most importantly, brains. GMA really disappointed us. We expected a lot from them. Another thing, the award of having the best in long gown was given to joanna myles te who nearly slipped off when she walked in her long gown. She clearly doesn't know how to walk and was not able to bring the gown. Sandra Stein should have won. She walked with poise. The pageant was really fast-paced and there was this part wherein the candidates had to give a rose to whoever they think is the most friendly of them all. This part consumed a couple number of minutes which I think is unnecessary. GMA should have traded this part with the question and answer portion which is the most important part of a pageant. This pageant was really strategically planned so as not to get to know whose the best and for their bets to immediately be placed in the top 5. We think Sandra Stein, Clarice Tiu and Gin Therese Capa had the x factor. Sandra Stein, Regine Terza Fondevilla and Gin Therese Capa walked beautifully like beauty queens and really knew how to bring themselves. The pretty ones were not included in the top 5. Sheila Mae Holthe has the perfect face. Angelie Bontilao and Maria Angelina Arrozal had the potential. And the worst part? We never knew whose got the brains, whose spontaneous and whose really deserving. This is very disappointing. GMA should never had pageant after all since they already knew to whom will they give the crown. Other 12 semifinalists were deserving but they heartlessly kicked them off the competition. There was no justice but I don't want to speak with GMA in anyway for any explanations because I know they will just use their power to trick us and try to strategically explain however in the end, I know no justice will still be given. So I'll just surrender everything to God and let God handle this. God knows what to do.
TAMA......BAKA IKAW YUN isa natalo sa pageant,,..
