If you still haven’t bought the latest issue (including the digital version) of Metro Magazine, then do yourself a favor and get one now. It has our Miss Universe 2012 First Runner-Up Janine Tugonon on the cover in a ’60s Redux theme, complete with a nice article and multi-page pictorial spread inside.
The first thing you might end up saying after seeing these images is…”What a long way our Janine has come!” From her days as a Pharmacy student and Miss Thomasian Personality to her unsuccessful first attempt to win a crown in Bb. Pilipinas 2011 and an eventual re-joining last year to finally nail the top prize, all the way to Las Vegas where she kept all Filipinos on the edge of their seats after almost giving the country its third Miss Universe victory.
Janine is certainly fated for better things to come. After she gets to relinquish her crown to a ‘highly-pressured’ successor come April, it’s time to reap and fully enjoy the rewards of an outstanding reign. I’m pretty sure she will have a string of more endorsements, plus a possible showbiz stint with ABS-CBN.
Marriage can wait. Right, Janine? 😉
