Gloria Diaz Speaks About Her “Hard Question” On Binibining Pilipinas 2024

This is what Gloria Diaz said about her question in the said pageant.

Former Miss Universe titleholder Gloria Diaz made waves online because of her question and this is what she said about it.

This year’s Binibining Pilipinas pageant was its 60th edition and one of the main highlights the gathering of Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz, Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, and Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.

The crowned Miss Universe 1969 was among the judges of the competition. The other judges that composed that all-women panel were

Rhea Tan (Beautiderm CEO), Bea Rose Santiago (Ms. International 2013), Fifi Sharma, Pia Wurtzbach (Miss Universe 2015), Andrea Rubio (Ms. International 2023), Margie Moran (Miss Universe 1973), and Conchitina Bernardo (chairman of the board of judges).

During the same event, Diaz asked one of the candidates a question that created a loud buzz online. This happened in the Top 15 Q&A portion and her question to Roella Solis of Calumpit, Bulacan was:

“What physical asset do you have that should make you win Binibining Pilipinas?”

Diaz’s question to the BBP 2024 contestant gained this answer:

“As a beauty queen and as a woman of vision, I am here to present you the best version of myself despite having a pivotal loss. Eight days ago, my grandmother died and I know that she is in heaven, watching me and proud of me that she has the best seat in heaven watching me over. Thank you.”

Seeming not contented with the answer, she followed up by stressing the physical asset part. This is actually not the first time that she became a topic among public because of her pageant question. In 2006, candidate Jeannie Anderson also had to answer a tricky question from her. These incidents coined the term “Gloria Diaz Curse”.

When asked about the one from the recent competition, the first Pinay Miss Universe responded by saying that her question was actually not hard. It was easy and for her, she found nothing difficult about it.

“Hard ba yun? Ang dali-dali na nga,” she quipped.

Meanwhile, the Binibining Pilipinas 2024 winners are:

  • Binibining Pilipinas International 2024 Myrna Esguerra
