LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles) – When Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach won the  Miss Philippines-Universe title earlier this year, her answer to the final question on her views about Internet censorship was “Always think before you click!”

Now, just hours before she steps on stage for the finals of the Miss Universe pageant currently being held at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Wurtzbach is telling fans and netizens the opposite: “Don’t think, just click!”

She was obviously referring to the online voting where television viewers and Internet users can vote for their favorite Miss Universe contestant in real time.  In the past, viewers and netizens could vote but only for Miss Photogenic, Best in National Costume and 16th finalist spot.

The voting results will be added to the scores from the celebrity judges to determine who wins the crown. Tonight’s celebrity judges include Emmy Award-nominated actress Niecy Nash, celebrity entertainment mogul Perez Hilton, 2012 Miss Universe Olivia Culpo and football legend Emmitt Smith.

So, if you’re planning to vote for Miss Philippines, don’t bother to think.  Just click.  Vote.
