On her guesting in Gandang Gabi Vice last May 10, Isabelle Daza revealed why she doesn’t want to join beauty pageants.
“Ang hirap eh! Ang hirap ng beauty pageant, tinatanong ka ng mga questions tapos 10 seconds to answer, tapos parang ‘What would you do to save the world?’” she began.
Isabelle said her mom, former Miss Universe Gloria Diaz, also didn’t encourage her to be a beauty queen.
“Laging sinasabi ng mom ko tama na yung isang beauty queen sa pamilya, may ganun siya eh, she’s selfish like that. Pero I think my mom is just being protective, kasi mahirap talaga ang beauty pageant, you have to be the most beautiful and most intelligent,” Isabelle explained.
When told by Vice Ganda that she is one of the beautiful in the country, Isabelle could only answer, “No I don’t believe that. I believe there are a lot of beautiful women out there. Ganito na lang I don’t want to be in a competition to prove I am the most beautiful because I don’t feel the need to be that.”
The Nathaniel star also revealed she wanted to be a fast food service crew when she was young because she loved fast food so much.
“Crew. Oo kasi super love ko yung fast food. So sabi ko I’ll take a summer job kasi wala naman akong ginagawa. So one time nagtraining kami, as in sobrang hirap, sobrang pagod. If you think our work is hard, you have to try their work. Eight hours kang nakatayo tapos lahat ng customers nagmamadali. Tapos meron silang pagka-rude, may pagkabastos kapag nag-oorder,” she told Vice.
She also added an encounter with an irate customer who made a scene during her early morning shift. Isabelle believed she explained herself gracefully to the woman, which had the customer leaving the store in a huff with her child. Watch Isabelle’s re-enactment of the story HERE
As for her work now as an actress, Isabelle shared her work in ABS-CBN is challenging because she acts more than she hosts, which is what she mostly did in her former network.
On her 5-year relationship with French man Adrien Semblat, Isabelle said, marriage is not in the near future.
“Mag-aasawa? Di pa no, I’m still young,” she disclosed.
