Angelia Ong is “hurt” but not down


When Angelia Ong returned back to her native Philippines after her victory in Vienna, she was not accorded with a parade or lavish homecoming ceremony. Instead, the Filipina beauty had a series of interviews with the local press. One thing that is remarkable with the new Miss Earth is her steady determination to do her job. She started the year 2016 by rolling up her sleeves and immersed herself with jobs associated to being the ambassador-at-large for mother nature.

Looking back at her TV interviews though, Angelia Ong is pretty aware that her victory is pretty much controversial. Watch the video below – a combo of Filipino and English conversations – when she asked about the perception of the people that the Miss Earth 2015 pageant rigged.

Clearly, Angelia is somehow hurt by the accusations. Interesting to note that she specified that Latino fans are the most vocal in labelling the results as fraud. But true to her character as a gracious beauty queen, she is trying her best to ignore these accusations despite being a little bit affected. For her, you can’t please everyone. Angelia believes her victory is hard earned and she will not allow anyone to steal something that she truly deserves.




    • On what basis it is fraud? Did u actually watch the whole contest? She deliverd well in all segmentscand shone the whole night. Not because PH company owns Ms.Earth, its already a fraud.

  1. why Filipinos did not welcome her properly…see pinoys are partial. what do u mean by credibility of a pageant when pageants themselves are not a serious affair, theyy dont bring any real changes

  2. Her slogan answer is the winning answer just how like Pia nailed the Qustion and Answer, this is the chance to prove to the judges that the candidate is worthy of winning the title. As for this Manila based pageant and biases…keeping in mind Miss Universe is American based and have 8 x USA winners, and Miss International is Japan based and have their own candidate win in 2012 does not mean your own candidates are not worthy of giving the best performance and stand out among the rest.

  3. I think the reason why Angelia Ong did not receive a lavish homecoming ceremony is because Philippines has won so many beauty pageants in the last 3 years. Philippines has become a victim of their own success which is a compliment. Enjoy the ride while it lasts because this golden era only lasts for a few years – ask Venezuela and India.
