Herlene Budol has given a feel of her skill in responding to interview questions.

While guesting on the YouTube channel of LGBTQ couple Apple and Aian, Herlene—also known as "Hipon Girl"—took part in a short Q&A.

"Papayag ka ba na ang mga transwoman ay sasali sa Binibining Pilipinas?" asked Aian.

"Ako, para sa 'kin ha, in my own opinion lang naman 'to, siyempre, kanya-kanya tayo ng opinyon," the former Wowowin host said. "Pero ang lahat ng gay community, LGBTQIA, ay mahal na mahal ko talaga, sobrang love na love ko 'yang mga 'yan. Para sa 'kin, nirerespeto ko yung kung ano yung desisyon nila. Pero para sa 'kin lang 'to a, may pageant para sa kanila na kaya nilang mas panindigan o mas bigyan ng magandang laban tsaka ng hustisya yung pinaglalaban nila sa kanilang gender. Kaya para sa 'kin, may para sa kanila."

Many netizens shared their praises in the comments, applauding Herlene's authenticity.
