Remember Ligaya Maligat from Miss Q & A of It’s Showtime? Sad to say, he passed away
LIGAYA MALIGAT – A former candidate of It’s Showtime’s Miss Q & A segment passed away.
Miss Q & A is a segment of the ABS-CBN noontime program, It’s Showtime which has been derived from the “Question and Answer” portion of beauty pageants.
The segment is intended for gays and transwomen and it focuses not only on the beauty of the candidates but also on their wit in answering questions. In every round, they have to start with “I believe,” and end their answer with “‘And I… thank you!”
Juliana Parizcova Segovia was named as the first “Miss Q and A 2018” with Matrica Mae Centino and Lars Pacheco are 1st and 2nd runner-ups, respectively.
In the second season, Mitch Montecarlo Suansane was named as “Miss Q and A 2019”, while the runners-up are Czedy Rodriguez and Chad Kinis Lustre-Reid.
One of the candidates who became part of the said segment is no less than Ligaya Maligat.
During his Miss Q&A stint, Maligat failed to steal the crown from Marigona Dona Dragusha. But, he was able to bounce back during the Miss Q & A Resbek, allowing him to advance to the semi-finals.
However, a certain Erika Akire confirmed earlier via a Facebook post that the former Miss Q&A candidate passed away.
“REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND! Ligaya Maligat DI KA NAMIN MAKAKALIMUTAN,” she wrote.
Her post was then flooded with condolences.
Meanwhile, some netizens took to the video-sharing platform, YouTube wherein they express their sadness to Ligaya’s passing by commenting on his videos during Miss Q&A days.
