Sandra Lemonon was the first of the Top 15 contestants who were called upon stage for the question round of Binipining Pilipinas (Miss Philippines). The contestant was asked about her opinion about a government scheme.
"What are your insights on the government's 'Build, Build, Build' program?" the judge asked her.
Instead of a rambling rehearsed answer, Ms Lemonon admitted in front of thousands of audience members that she didn't know about the project.
"The insights of the government's 'Build, Build, Build' program. Actually, you know what, I studied so much for this Q&A, but sadly that's something that I don't know really much about. But, at least I'm here trying to answer a good question. Thank you!" she accepted graciously on stage.
The beauty pageant contestant's honest admission about not knowing the answer impressed host and 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach who lauded the contestant.

Sometimes, intelligence does not only require preparation. It requires honesty. Being intelligent is being honest in admitting that we don't know everything.- Jeffrey Rosel Abad (@abad_jeffreyr) March 18, 2018
