What is your MAJOR MAJOR answer? (Best comment wins a Larry Alcala Solo Shirt!)
In defense of our lovely Ms. Philippines 2010, Venus Raj, I could say that there was no way of answering that question publicly. I had made my “major major” mistake when I was in my mid twenties and I would not have divulged that on national television. She’s only 22, almost fresh out of college, led a very straight life because she came from the rural poor (she lived in a nipa hut in the middle of rice fields!) and was determined to turn it all around. What kind of big mistake was she supposed to say? That she only hit Cum Laude status and not Suma Cum Laude upon graduation? I would not even consider her dethronement from — and eventual reinstatement to — the Bb. Pilipinas pageant her mistake.
Here, as ABC News reports, are other people who had difficulty formulating an impromptu answer to this question. Notice that many of them are highly intelligent.
How about you? How would you have answered that question?
