After Gloria Diaz Criticized Maxine Medina, Did the 1969 Miss Universe Really Impress in Her Q&A Portion? Must Watch!


The first ever Filipina to win the Miss Universe crown, Miss Gloria Diaz, made headlines weeks before the 65th Miss Universe coronation night because of her strong recommendation for Miss Philippines Maxine Medina to get her own interpreter.

In a news report released by ABS-CBN, the 1969 Miss Universe insisted that Maxine should express her answer for the pageant's Q&A round in her own vernacular language. She also claimed that speaking in Filipino during the pageant's Q&A portion will not make her any less of a beauty queen.

"This is the first time I will meet Maxine and the first thing I will tell her is to get an interpreter if she feels that she can better express her thoughts using our vernacular language. She is a Filipina and I don’t think it will make her less of a beauty queen if she will decide to use our language on the grand coronation," Diaz sad through a social media post. 

Gloria received criticism when she claimed that Maxine only had a one-in-a-million chance of winning the prestigious pageant. In an interview with ABS-CBN News' Marie Lozano, the former beauty queen shared her opinions as to why she thought Maxine would not be crowned the victor. 

It turns out she was right.

Her statements drew the ire of many netizens. Some of them couldn't help but scrutinize Diaz's answer in her own Q&A portion in the 1969 Miss Universe.

Rodel T. Emnace: "Wala talagang pinag-aralan makapagsalita tong si Gloria. 'Kala mo naman ang galing nung sagot niya. 'Di ko alam kung mga lasing 'yong mga judges at siya pinanalong MissU noon"

JR Saldua: "Paano kasi nung nanalo siya ng MU (Miss Universe) hindi pa uso tao nun. Kung makapagsalita akala mo ang ganda ng sagot niya during final Q and A"

Jhastine Diaz: "Yung panahon nga niya, walang kwenta sagot niya e. Makapagjudge na feeling expert"

Gloria's comments on Maxine urged many netizens to look back at how she herself handled her own Q&A round in 1969.

Back when the pageant's production was still relatively simple and when the stage was less grandiose, the questions were decidedly less political. 

The Top 5 finalists were asked: "In the next day or so, a man will land on the moon. If a man from the moon landed in your hometown, what would you do to entertain him?"
