To prove her critics wrong, reigning Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados surprised everyone when she took off her makeup on national television.
Ganados reacted to online criticisms that she is only gorgeous when she is wearing a full face of makeup.
“Sorry, pero gusto mo tanggalin natin?” she told TV host Boy Abunda on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” on Tuesday.
The impromptu suggestion from the beauty queen shocked Abunda.
She was then handed a couple of wet wipes to remove her makeup. After removing her foundation, eyeshadow, and eyebrow makeup , she proudly showed off the wipes.
The 23-year-old beauty queen from Talisay, Cebu earned praises from netizens for her bravery.
“The level of unbothered I aspire to be,” one netizen said.
She will be competing for the Philippines’ fifth Miss Universe crown.
