Karen J. Gallman was definitely eyeing a title higher than what she got. But the breaks did not entirely switch In her favor, especially after the dreaded Top 15 Q&A when she got picked to answer the question about the provision of a 3rd rest room for transgenders. My seatmate inside the Big Dome at the time asked me to answer the same. And I obliged by using the same drift of Karen’s reply but directing the “privacy” towards the transgenders instead so as not to sound discriminating or anything, and ending it with “but in all honesty, there is really no need for such. Whether inside the rest room, fitting room or the like, I mind my own business and so should all of us.”
But that is all water under the bridge now. And inspite of people thinking that Karen lost her chance to win a crown, she was still rewarded with one – Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2018 – that is easily not the most anticipated pageant assignment. But hey, a win is still a win however which way one looks at it. A title is forever, and it will stay that way even if she turns old and gray.
Now let us watch Karen’s performance during the Grand Coronation night now.
