How Karen Ibasco Turn A Basher Into a Supporter

Postby Prozac » Sun Nov 21, 2021 12:11 pm

    

Amidst the uproar brought about by Karen Ibasco winning the fourth Miss Earth title for the Philippines in 2017, Karen
remained quiet on issues about hometown decision and that she doesn't deserve the title memes that kept haunting
her for years. It is a known fact that even Filipinos joined the bash-Karen Ibasco bandwagon and there was no end in
sight. It was indeed a harrowing and heart-wrenching reign for her.

Instead of fighting her haters online, she focused herself on her reign and the speaking engagements that went with it,
mostly about environmental concerns. She was the ambassador to World Wide Fund (WWF) and the Youth Ambassador
to Climate Change Commission, and on some occasions, I met friends (who were true blue Karen haters) who witnessed
her in action, and now Karen is slowly turning the tables upside down with her detractors. She is indeed turning haters
into supporters.

In the Q and A round of Miss Earth 2021, Karen showed the world she can be a perfect host too. I like her tone of voice,
her delivery, inflection, and modulation. And she is glib, loquacious, and eloquent, she owned the segment and no other
beauty queens could match that.

And the bonus? There was one remaining word in the glass bowl, and she volunteered to expand the word as if she was
reliving her magical 2017 interview performance in Miss Earth. This was her exact words: "All right thank you very much,
For the viewers, I am going to give a little twist because there is one more word that was left in this bowl, and I am going
to answer it for you. The last word is INTELLECT.

If that was my hashtag during my Miss Earth I'm going to answer it this way. I believe that the winner of Miss Earth should
always have intellect because in that way that substance part is going to help her speak her mind and this organization
is all about knowing how to be a public figure who can represent the organization to speak for the environment because
here as we live in this generation it's not just understanding to do it for yourself but representing the outspoken or rather
the person who can not speak and that is Mother Earth and I am going to do it for her and a person who can speak her mind
is the best person who can represent this earth."

And betchabygollywow, even my son's jaw dropped as he whispered: She really deserved the title no matter what the
trolls said."

By the way to see how Karen Ibasco fared in the Q and A segment here is the link to Miss Earth 2021 grand finals.

Karen's bashers are one of the reasons why I stopped posting in Missosology by mid-2018 (although I returned last year and went off until only recently). Karen's bashers were always there, and they believe that the pageant is ''awful'' all because she won. I love Miss Earth and I've always adored their advocacies even more, and I still remember being happy when Karen won Miss Earth. Unfortunately, the bashers kept saying awful things and today, she has kept that mission alive. Right now, Miss Earth has proven that they would rather enthrone the ones that are willing to defend the planet and are smart in how they deal with it.
Sisters forever.
Will never forget the Miss Universe trio that once was. For now, covering other pageants.

I've got a soft spot for the underdogs of this world and Karen deserves all that. She leads all other beauty queens in Q&A and has since vindicated herself splendidly with that prowess.

Karen has never looked so beautiful until yesterday when she conducted the Q & A segment of Miss Earth 2021 virtual pageant. She is simply outstanding.

And her explanation of that "INTELLECT" hashtag is basically how the Miss Earth organization has chosen their top 4 winners this year. All of them fit the bill on what Karen had said.

Guys let us play a game ... Pretend you are Karen Ibasco and you had enough with the trolls and the haters of the world
and one day you let all the steam break loose, what will you say to your bashers?

Two of my friends volunteered and here are their lines.

1. Jane: "I wonder how many calories these bitches burn by bashing or hating or jumping to conclusions?

2. Rita: "Cancel my subscription, I am done with your issues and your foul mouth!"

3. And here is mine: "Dear Bashers. I feel complimented and lauded that I am always a trending
topic in your life ..."

Karen won in 2017 fair and square. The way she handled her basher is just a proof that she's a true queen. During the Miss Earth 2021Top 8 Q and A she had the best answer and could easily go through the final four. With her intellect, she will then easily nail the final question and snatch the crown.

Another friend told me how she will handle her basher. "I will do my lines the way Miriam Defensor Santiago Attacked
her opponents on the Senate floor."

Just a question, not bashing.

Why did she answer the hashtag? Is she a candidate? Proving something? Why?

I thought that while the final deliberation among the judges and the organizers was going on, production had to fill-in the time gap without breaking loose the momentum and that probably meant an added twist at no extra cost to the MEO. Karen did not disappoint the organization felt confident she can deliver appropriately with flair where it matters. I didn't think it was deliberate, the spiel could have been embedded integral to the show since the onset. Or, is it just me?

It is nothing but a twist ... she said it herself -a twist.

A twist is a literary technique that introduces a radical change in the direction or expected outcome just like what Karen
did in Miss Earth 2021. When it happens, it becomes a surprise appetizer, a curveball, or the bombshell of the show where
nobody had seen it coming. And when the twist was done properly ... people will talk about it, and the ploy succeeded.

Pageant twists are schemes made in the course of the program that is not customarily or routinely done in the olden contest.
It subverts expectations. They don't follow the much-abused techniques of how the show should progress and this old formula
is regarded by many as obsolete and a stale approach because they don't want to digress from the usual fare. They want to stick
with the old formula because it worked once and they thought by doing the same it is guaranteed that people will like it. . Well,
not all the time. They don't know that clinging to these senile ideas can be a monotony thus far insulting the intelligence of the
viewing public because they don't want to grow and discover new visions leaving no room for improvement.

Going back to the twist, when properly carried out and executed, they genuinely surprise the audience and thereby increase
the likeability of the show. In Karen's case ... it showed. There were rave reviews and positive feedback attest that being
adventurous and bold in making changes in production can be a welcome treat.

But Miss Earth has revolutionized pageantry. Year in and year out, they always introduced something new. The most popular
examples of their initiatives are the no make-up segment of the contest. And in Q and A instead of asking antiquated questions
which oftentimes are copied from other pageants (just like the complaints in Miss Globe when one forumer discovered that the
questions were a rehash and pirated from somewhere) Miss Earth utilized the use of hashtags and the candidates expand the
word or phrase. There is nothing like the ORIGINAL!

Is Karen a contestant? No, but she was the segment host. Is Karen trying to prove something? I don't think so. She was already
the clear winner in 2017, and she has proven herself... it is just that her detractors won't give up bashing her and they didn't
give her the benefit of the doubt. She has proven her mettle in public speaking which is what the organization needs. Yes,
Miss Colombia is more beautiful, but she doesn't have the speaking ability like Karen. Karen is a complete package - her beauty
is nothing to sneeze at ... and the most valuable attribute is ... she can speak, she can teach and she can impart.

This reminds me of the comment made by a Colombian co-worker who said: "They can always make Miss Colombia the winner,
and maybe invite Karen when there is a need for her to speak on behalf of the organization.

"Are you nuts", I told her. " We will make her win, and make Karen take the microphone for her? What's the point?" And you want
Karen, to be her able assistant, a Yaya, a caretaker in case the winner was indisposed or has butterflies in her tummy because
she was scared to speak, let alone face the audience? So why don't we give it to somebody who can!

A Miss Earth winner is an awesome responsibility. Either you have it or you don't!"

Personal opinion:

Not fond of her answering the question. She wasn’t a candidate. There was no need for her to “show-off” her interview skills.
It came accross as rehearsed and tacky. But again, that’s just in my opinion.

Apparently some were thrilled with the concept. But for me - it’s a NO.
I’m not sure if the organization made her answer the question however, if she did it on her own accord - I’d say it was distasteful and vindictive.
Stick to your hosting duties and stop trying to impress your haters because you already won the crown.
