However, just several days after the pageant, a netizen from Facebook, Pry Rivera, has revealed in a post that the Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2018 Eva Patalinjug has copied her answer from a magazine.
On the post, he also posted pieces of evidence where the answer and a statement of a magazine from last year have the same statement.
It’s that heart of gold that make you beautiful, keep shining! ✨✨✨? 14 more days to go!???

The statement on the magazine states, “In these times when fear and uncertainty have seemingly taken over, as a united nation, we remain steadfast and unfazed in the midst of challenges. I believe what we need as one nation now is unity. As we celebrate our country’s independence, let us march forward towards the future, in the hopes of building a better nation, #TheNewPH. This is my stand and my pledge for humanity.”
Meanwhile, Patalinjug’s answer when asked about a beauty queen’s role in the Philippine economy’s success is: “A role of the beauty queen is to be a voice. I am here to make a message to all of you. In these times of uncertainty and fear that have seemingly taken over our country, we have remained steadfast and unfazed amidst all the challenges. As a united nation, what we can do is to set aside our political differences, forget our academic and social preferences, and let love and loyalty for our country rise above all. So we can march towards our future in the hopes of making a peaceful country.”
