Maxine Medina is now in the limelight after reaching the top 6 round in the 65th edition of Miss Universe. Pageant critics are now highlighting Maxine's answer during the top 6 question and answer portion of the pageant. Maxine made history in the Philippine pageantry when an interpreter was hired to help boost her confidence as well as to answer the question in a more precise manner. However, Maxine opted to answer in English because she is more comfortable expressing herself in English than to use the interpreter during the coronation event of the 65th Miss Universe that was held in SM MOA Arena in Bay City, Pasay City, Metro Manila.

Despite from Maxine's answer during the top 6 question and answer portion, Filipino fans are still happy that Maxine reached this far. This is because Maxine managed to represent the country so well in the 65th Miss Universe pageant through consistency, humility, and hard work, which she did for several months after she was crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2016 in Araneta Coliseum last April. Other countries are not that lucky enough to have a candidate in Miss Universe who goes that far. Out of 86 candidates who participated the event, Maxine is one of the top 6 strongest contestants after the coronation night of Miss Universe.

This is mainly because they fail to provide satisfaction to their expected result or scenario. Crab mentality becomes worse when it will become a habitual action for a person who always envy other's success. The only thing that you can do to prevent yourself from being victimized from these kinds of individuals is to gradually isolate yourself away from them until your relationship will fade forever.
