Twitter still rained with greetings for Janine Tugonon even though she didn’t win the crown on the recent international beauty pageant, Miss Universe 2012.
Most celebrities are happy to the winning candidate of the Philippines as the first runner-up in such a prestigious beauty pageant.
But still they can’t help not to express their disappointment with the results of the competition, which was Miss USA Olivia Culpo presented to be the Miss Universe 2012.
It leaded with Janine’s talent manager, Jonah Gaffud, (@ jonasofmercator) of Mercator Model and Artist Management, who’s both happy and sad for the event.
On his personal Twitter account, He said, “I am sorry everyone! I thought the crown was ours na.:-(“
“I’m sorry!!!! So devastated!!! We worked hard for this! But as my prayer goes: I will be grateful to God no matter what.”
“I just wanted that crown so badly for my country:-(“
“When they were about to announce, i was crying already. I felt it was for her.”
However, He was still glad because his pet beauty queen won. His further message for Janine on Twitter was, “@janine_tugonon hoy!!! Hahahaha!!! Salamat naman at sinunod mo lahat lahat lahat ng turo ko!!!!:-)”
Jonas is also manager of the two Miss Universe runners-up Venus Raj and Maria Shamcey Supsup.
Miss World 1993 second runner-up Ruffa Gutierrez (@iloveruffag) posted this: “NOOOOO way!!!! This is insane!!!! Dapat Philippines ang panalo!!! This is soooo disappointing.”
