Binibining Pilipinas judge who wore shorts unfazed by criticism from viewers

Asuncion somehow redeemed himself by noting that his shorts and bag were made by Filipino designers

Binibining Pilipinas Cecilio Asuncion’s judge doesn’t seem affected by all the criticism he received for wearing a “work-from-home” outfit at the event.

Viewers slammed Asuncion after they saw that he wore shorts while judging. The modeling agency founder brushed off the comments.

I have lived in America for 22 years and derecho pa rin ako magtagalog dahil mahal ko ang bansa ko. Sa mga bumabatikos sa pagpili ko ng suot ko, sana magsumikap kayo at balang araw, ma-invite rin kayo mag judge,” he wrote on Facebook.

He also praised 1st runner-up Herlene Budol who took home the most awards.

Netizens called him disrespectful over his choice to wear boxers.

Asuncion somehow redeemed himself by noting that his shorts and bag were made by Filipino designers.

Sa lahat na nagtatanong bakit ako naka shorts, ito ay dahil pinili kong magsuot ng gawa ng pinoy na designer na si Avel Bacudio na mula sa tela na galing sa Mindanao,” he added.


He also willingly translated Budol’s answer to English. Cebu’s Nicole Borromeo eventually won the renowned title.
