Vickie Rushton is definitely not giving up after her Bb. Pilipinas 2019 loss

  • Vickie Rushton was one of the top candidates of the Binibining Pilipinas 2019 pageant
  • The coronation night was held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last June 9, 2019
  • During the Q&A portion, Vickie stuttered and delivered an incomplete answer
  • Netizens critcized her for blaming an audience member for her Q&A

Vickie Rushton was one of the crowd’s favorite candidates during the Binibining Pilipinas 2019 pageant coronation night held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last June 9, 2019 (Sunday).

But everything suddenly changed when the candidate gave her answer for the Q and A portion.The question she got from actor Daniel Padilla was “Why is mental health as important as physical health?”

The beauty queen who might have had a case of jitters during that time delivered her answer incompletely.

“Mental health is important as physical health because it is about our inner being. Having self-love is important, and as a woman, I can inspire people to take care of themselves, to take care of their minds as well as their health because they will be as effective…” Vickie answered.

Her answer received widely mixed reactions from the many Filipinos watching the live pageant last Sunday. Some expressed their disappointment towards her given answer while some sympathized with her nervousness.

Vickie also recently stated in an interview how she regretted the incident but she told an interviewer that she, unfortunately, got distracted by someone in the audience who had made a face at her as she was speaking.

This reason stirred up netizens even more and they lashed out at her on social media.

On Instagram, a netizen said: “No wonder why u didn’t won any crown-ur blaming someone or other people, just because of an audience u were not able to answer the question correctly??? Awwe pitty on you, u should give up #incompetent #give up #attitude” commented the netizen.

The beauty queen gracefully corrected her basher’s grammar mistakes and replied that she will not give up.

“Correction po, it’s ‘didn’t win’ and ‘pity.’ Sorry but I’m not giving up. Never. God bless you!” Vickie said.

Her boyfriend Jason Abalos was quick to defend his girlfriend after the Binibining Pilipinas 2019 coronation event.

On his Twitter account, Jason explained that Vickie got distracted by fans who were making noise during her turn in the Q&A.

“Sobrang prepared siya sa lahat, pinaghandaan niya talaga ‘to. Hindi lang siya handa sa fans ng ibang candidates na nag-ingay nong siya na ang sumagot sa Q&A,” Jason wrote.

“Hindi ko sila masisisi. Kung ako man siguro, iba ang bet ko tapos hakot awards ‘yong isa, makakaramdam din ako ng takot.

“Pero tapos na guys okay na ‘yan. Happy ang lahat ng candidates sa naging experience nila. Marami sila natutunan; matuto din tayo rumespeto ng ibang tao. Kung mas magaling kayo, ‘wag na kayo magyabng. Ok na yan. Ok? Ok. God bless you all,” he wrote.

Vickie also posted her message for both her supporters and bashers on Instagram after her second stint in the Binibining Pilipinas pageant.

“Life is the biggest classroom and experience is the greatest teacher. My experiences in the recently concluded Bb. Pilipinas pageant has taught me a lot of lessons±lessons which will guide me as I continue to embark in my life’s journey. These experiences will help me find more options to reach my life goal.

“To all those who supported me, prayed for me, joined me in my journey, thank you is not enough to express my gratitude for your unconditional support and love.

“I treasure the moments I shared with my fellow Binibinis who, like me, shared a common dream of getting a crown. In them, I found a family. We worked together, laughed together, and at times cried together. I am sincerely happy to the crown holders and commiserate with those who did not.

“I have a lot to thank—the BPCI for the opportunity to compete again and to our mentors for guiding us.

“To all those who believed in me despite my imperfections and to my detractors, thank you so much. Your comments and reactions were noted. I can use some of them to perfect my imperfect self. Thank you also to those who continue to defend me. Let us put to rest the issue and we can move on from here. We can be friends even if we had differences. Let’s consider how to uplift one another, support, encourage and pray for each other.
.
“In a world full of hate, be love.”
Be kind. ♥️” Vickie shared.
