MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – The Philippines crowned yet another beauty queen last night when it named Angelia Gabrena Ong, 24, of Manila, the 2015 Miss Philippines-Earth. She will represent the country in the Miss Earth pageant later this year.
Rarely do beauty pageant judges get totally impressed by contestants’ answers to the final question but this time they absolutely did. The moment Ong began to speak into the microphone to answer her final question, the panel of judges knew it had a winner.
Ong’s question from celebrity judge Zsa Zsa Padilla was the most difficult one that evening: “Do you believe in same-sex marriage?”
“I think it really depends on the person if he or she believes in sex marriage but as for me, if the person feels that he or she needs to be married to show his or her love the I don’t mind having sex marriage.”
The Adobo Chronicles could not reach Ong to ask her if, by her answer, she meant ‘same-sex marriage,’ ‘sex before marriage,’ or ‘marriage for the sole purpose of sex.’
