Next came the evening gown competition for the Top 10 where Venus elegantly presented her silver gown. She wound up 5th and got the last ticket to the Top 5. (Photo credit: Getty Images)
When Venus was called as one of the Top 5, tension was mounting inside her. She claims to be the type of person who gets more nervous when she thinks to herself that she will indeed get nervous in being interviewed onstage. And this one is truly a 'major major' thing for her. (Photo credit: Getty Images)
And nervous she got. During the final question, she admitted that she was already at a loss for quality words to relate. She did her best despite the tremendous pressure boiling inside her. And this image gave birth to the Philippines’ latest catchphrase: “major major”
After the final question, Venus could only watch the opportunity of winning the crown slip away from her grasp. Mexico's Jimena Navarrete stamped her cool demeanor and tight grip on the judges' attention. (Photo credit: Getty Images)
In the end, Venus still made the whole Philippine nation and all Pinoys around the world proud of her achievement. Her 4th Runner-Up finish ended the drought of placements in the Miss Universe Pageant. And for this, a 'major major' thank you is in order! (Photo credit: Getty Images)
