2016 was a memorable year for actress Jessy Mendiola as she experienced and received various comments, both positive and negative. In her latest vlog that was posted last June 30, the actress sat down with her husband, Luis Manzano, to react to the past interviews she did.
One of the most notable memories Jessy shared was when she topped the list of FHM’s sexiest women of 2016. In her interview, the actress mentioned how she felt like she even beat Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach when she won the award. In her defense, Jessy was nervous during that time and didn’t know what to say.
“Yung mga bashers ko, they took it wrong. Pero ang ibig sabihin ko doon, tugatog na si Pia tapos yung feeling ko that night, ‘grabe wow talo ko pa si Pia sa support ninyo,’” Jessy said.
Even though Jessy had people bashing her statement, Pia took the time to message her and tweet to congratulate the actress. The beauty queen didn’t take it against Jessy and instead supported her for feeling like a winner during that special night for her.
“You still have time to learn, it’s never too late,” Jessy shared.
Another video the 29-year-old actress reacted to was her red carpet interview at the Star Magic Ball 2016. She was with her then-boyfriend and now-husband, Luis, who complimented the actress for being the most beautiful date he had.
This is where her iconic “what am I say to that” which trended all over social media. Tons of comments about her English skills and the way she answered was the topic on social media for the rest of the evening.
Jessy also revealed the underwear color of Luis that time which led to different reactions once again from netizens. However, Luis, who was with her in the vlog, joked that as a matter of fact, he was not wearing any underwear.
“Ang sabi ko talaga is ‘what am I to say to that’ pero lumayo ako sa mic, kaya yung ‘to’ [di siya nariniig],” Jessy revealed.
Jessy shared that she grew from all this experience and she tried to improve. Luis also teaches her on hosting and how to confidently speak her mind.
“I’ve come along way and minsan pag naalala ko nalang yun, natatawa nalang ako sa sarili ko. I guess hindi lang talaga gets ng mga tao na hindi lahat perfect,” she said.
