Lea Salonga shares thought as Manny Pacquiao joins Miss Universe judges

Miss Lea Salonga, as former Miss Universe judge, has an advice for Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao who is set to be part of Miss Universe panel of judges. “One thing that I discovered, it’s not as easy as it looks and it’s not as easy as when you’re doing it at home on your sofa in your pajamas,” Ms. Salonga told ABS-CBNnews.com.

“You have to be really objective. How things look on TV is different from how it looks like.”

“I don’t know who the rest of the panelists are but I think Manny will have a good time. When you’re there, you have to be really objective and you become really really objective like ‘How does this person look in her bathing suit?’,” she said.

Filipino boxing champ and Representative Manny Pacquiao will be one of the judges in the upcoming 63rd Miss Universe pageant on January 25 at the U.S. Century Bank Arena in Miami, Florida. Actress-designer Kristin Cavallari; American actor William Levy; reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump and model Louise Roe will be among the panel of judges.
