4th runner up – Ms. China, Luo Zilin
3rd runner up – Ms. Philippines, Shamcey Supsup
2nd runner up – Ms. Brazil, Priscila Machado
1st runner up – Ms. Ukraine, Olesia Stefanko

I have searched numerous live stream sites to be able to watch this year’s most prestigious pageant. I am so happy to have found one. It was already the announcement of Top 5 when I got to this site but it is all worth it. The Philippine country is once again so proud that Ms. Philippines Shamcey Supsup made it big… BIG! She definitely is awesome.

She’s the only Ms. Universe 2011 finalist who didn’t have to answer with an interpreter. Here’s a transcript of her million dollar question:

Vivica Fox: Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why and why not?

Miss Philippines : “If I have to change my religious beliefs, I will not marry the person that I love because the first person that I love is God, who created me. And I have my faith and my principles, and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, should love my God, too.”

This has made her top 1 in the Q&A Fan Vote.

Congratulations for being the 3rd runner up!! I’m so proud to be a Filipino! Wooohooo!

Update:

Here’s what Oprah Winfrey said via NBC News
“I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is? the Q and A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point.”

    Like Oprah’s opinion most of the Filipino’s hoped that Shamcey won. But the Q.and A is not just the only consideration for this contest. Lets face reality..Ms Angola’s charm and beauty captivated the whole planet and by sheer luck the question she was given was…”beauty contest type” the one you would internalized if your a pageant contestant.And to Ms lea Salonga’s defense….her question was pre-written ang given to them…they dont write their own questions to ask the girls.
    Going back last year…we had thought that Venus Raj could won the pageant if the Q. and A. weren’t playing a big role in choosing the winners..she had stood out in all the other aspects but somehow disappointed us with her answers…
    Thats with all the other contests…aside from your attributes and intelligence you need LUCK .
