MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Now it can be told. While Miss Philippines Catriona Gray had the looks, poise and presence to win the Miss Universe crown, it was her brilliant response to the final question that did the trick.
Her response to the final question impressed not just the all-female panel of judges, but also Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo who is known for public statements that often embarrass her and the Office of the Vice President.
Today, Robredo said she wants to hire Gray as her new speechwriter/spokesperson.
”She’s from the Bicol region like myself, so I hope that she would consider that in favorably responding to my offer,” Robredo said.
Robredo’s statement didn’t sit well with Georgina Hernandez, for obvious reasons.
