Janine Tugonon feels exploited by BBP because they are requiring her to wear a swimsuit on the annual Binibining Pilipinas parade of beauties held around the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City. The parade of beauties are primarily for this year’s Binibining Pilipinas candidates who traditionally wears swimsuit around Araneta Center, one of the most crowded places in Metro Manila. Janine Tugonon feels that as a reigning Bb. Pilipinas-Universe and Miss Universe 2012 1st runner up, she does not deserve to be parading around in swimsuit anymore. Shamcey Supsup, 2011’s winner and Miss Universe 3rd runner up, also chimed in and she mentioned that she was not made to wear swimsuit when it was her turn to join the parade last year as reigning queen, instead, she was wearing a gown. These info made Janine question the intentions of the organizers more.
Janine tweeted: “So we just found out were wearing swimsuits in the parade Tom. Why?!”
Shamcey replied: “wow grabe this year ah…Last year we wore gowns during the parade and even for the souvenir magazine. Yikes!”
Janine replied to Shamcey: “ung sa magazine ok pa eh pero sa parade?! Tapos na ako Dapat ako dun eh. Haayyy”
Janine’s fan tweeted her about it: “hope they respect your title and position. You’re already way past that stage.”
Janine replied: “that’s exactly my point.:((“
