Pia Wurtzbach had her own share of critics in the Philippines. First, they criticized her for competing at Bb. Pilipinas for 3 times. Then, when she won, her physical characteristics became the object of ridicule. Criticisms ranges from her wide body structure to her flabby arms and legs. While Pia earned the praise of foreign beauty pageant watchers, back home, she has almost the same number of people who loved her as those who disdained her.
If there is one thing that was underestimated about Pia, it’s her determination. She was recently spotted attending a local pageant in the province of North Cotabato looking slim and fit. She’s hitting back at her critics big time! Anyone who called Pia fat, now is the right time to eat your words. When Pia donned her gown for the event, she looked glamorous and statuesque. Even without make-up, Pia looked very ready for Miss Universe.
What the critics took out from the equation when they hurled nasty epithets against Pia are not just her dedication and passion. They also failed to take into consideration the transformation powers of the people within the Bb. Pilipinas organization. Why, they forgot how Janine Tugonon was polished to perfection!
Of course, the world wouldn’t be exciting without the contrabidas just like in one of those Philippine TV soap operas. However, critics can be taken in a positive light. Like what Pia did, one can can silence critics by proving them wrong. And when the day of reckoning comes, Pia could have the last laugh.
