Mariel De Leon and Catriona Gray Are Fine With Constructive Criticism

Training for pageant takes work and there’s always room for improvement. Just ask Binibining Pilipinas contestant Catriona Gray. During a panel workshop with other pageant queens, Catriona shared what her strength was. She was then given comments by the panel including Miss International 2017 contestant Mariel De Leon.

As seen in the video clip she said, “I really love your confidence and the way you speak but sometimes it seems a tiny bit scripted.”

This was meant to be constructive criticism but netizens took it differently. Many  shared negative comments towards Mariel on Twitter.

Mariel reacted to the issue on Instagram Stories saying, “There’s a difference between constructive criticism (to help someone) and bashing.”

Catriona also addressed the issue, “Any advice from our queens is valuable to us Binibinis and I took all of those given to me in a very constructive way! I always have something to learn and improve on, that’s why one of my greatest passions is education!!”

Hopefully their comments clear the air around this problem and are wising Catriona good luck for the upcoming contest on March 18.
