The Philippines’ Miss Universe bet would rather not make a big fuss out of criticisms that she’s not 100% natural.
The 26-year-old North Cotabato beauty, however, responded indirectly when asked if there’s any truth to old photos of her circulating in social media.
“You know… it's a beauty pageant. A lot of girls would enhance themselves before joining pageant or try to at least make you look better.”
MJ knows the road to Miss Universe is tough ---and four Filipinas (Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, Janine Tugonon and Ariella Arida) placing runners-up before her are adding pressure on her all the more.
Good thing MJ knows where to draw strength from.
“I have the whole country praying for me. That's my edge. Because I think that if you have that blessing from Him, it'll be a big factor for you to win the crown.”
While she has everyone’s support, the Davao-based entrepreneur knows a few noisy ones are trying to pull her down.
“Why don't people support your representative instead of bashing? Let's be positive, let's just spread love,” she said, referring to those who circulate her photos from Binibining Pilipinas 2011 and 2012.
In the March 31 episode of “Aquino & Abunda Tonight,” MJ has earlier insisted she didn’t undergo beauty enhancements.
