Miss Universe 1969: Ms. Gloria Diaz of Philippines

Question: In the next day or so, a man will land on the moon. If a man from the moon landed in your hometown, what would you do to entertain him?

Ms. Philippines Answer: (Giggle) "Oh, just the same things I do. I think if he has been on the moon for so long, I think when he comes over he wants to change, I guess." (giggle again)

Sometimes, questions need to be answered with a sense of humor. Normally when you want someone to be entertained, you tend to do stuffs like singing or dancing in front of your visitor. Here, Ms. Gloria Diaz visualized the scenario, and answered like it was really happening. She had visualized that the man is on a suit and he may want to change first to feel comfortable.

Remember that on 1969, Neil Armstrong was the first man who landed on the moon just a day after the Miss Universe 1969 pageant.

Miss Universe 2012: Olivia Culpo of USA

Question: What is something that you have done, that you will never do again?

Miss USA Answer: First I’d like to start off by saying that every experience, no matter what it is, good or bad, you’ll learn from it. That’s just life, but something I’ve done that I’ve probably regretted would be picking on my siblings growing up because you appreciate them so much more when you’re older, you get closer with your family. Everybody fights with their siblings, right?! But I don’t regret it.

She answered naturally while smiling a lot. Ms. USA is unpretentious to be so smart.
