Herlene Nicole Budol won the hearts of Binibining Pilipinas 2022 audiences as she reflected on her transformation as a beauty queen during the pageant’s question-and-answer portion.
On the Binibining Pilipinas 2022 grand coronation night held last July 31 at the Araneta Coliseum, Herlene spoke of how the prestigious pageant gave her a platform as a comedian to serve as an inspiration.
The Rizal bet was asked by Cecilio Asuncion during the Q&A portion, “Ang beauty pageant ay isang lugar para sa transpormasyon. Anong transpormasyon na importante ang nangyari sa'yo habang nandito ka sa Binibining Pilipinas?”
“Maraming salamat po. Para sa akin, isang karangalan na nakatungtong dito sa Binibining Pilipinas bilang isang binibining hindi inaasahan. Para sa akin, ang sarap palang mangarap. Ang sarap mangarap. Walang imposible. Isa po akong komedyante na laki sa hirap at ang aking transpormasyon ay ang magbigay ng inspirasyon. Because I know for myself that I am beautiful. I know for myself that I am uniquely beautiful with a mission,” Herlene answered.
The actress-comedienne was the only Top 12 finalist to answer in Tagalog. She had previously stated that she will answer in Tagalog throughout the pageant.
Herlene secured a first runner-up finish and won a total of seven special awards sponsored by various brands.
