Megan Young enjoys Assassin's Creed, Fable, and especially Pokémon—her favorite is Blastoise (a "basic Pokémon with a lot of strength and spunk.") Last night she was crowned Miss World 2013. If we're ever in a beauty pageant with aliens from other galaxies, folks, this is the woman we want representing humankind.
Young was crowned Miss Philippines, and in an interview earlier this month described herself as a down-to-earth, natural "RPG-kind-of-girl." Jason Schreier already is proposing marriage ... BUT—"Actually, I’ve never played Final Fantasy!" she admits. Well, me either!
"I guess I was just too stuck in the other games," Young told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. "I was playing Fable and Assassin's Creed at one time, and I just couldn't let go of the two to get into Final Fantasy."
The Philippine Daily asked if performing in beauty pageants felt like an RPG. "It kinda does," Young said with a laugh. "I don’t wanna say its a game to me because it’s totally NOT a game. But there’re always strategy and logistics wherever you go and … OK, let’s just say that I’m a character choosing which hairstyle and makeup to do, which outfit will go (with) the occasion.
"In a way it’s kinda like [The] Sims."
