From George Palaganas: "We understand that the first pageant years back where you are included as a candidate will be foregone(reads loskl ka non! lol!). It will be a total all new pageant so do your best and we know you can make it as the 3rd Miss Universe from the Philippines! Bring home the bacon Janine and we will all root for you all the way through the pageant!"
