The video, which was posted Wednesday by the TeeFM Facebook page, already got more than 12,700 likes, 9,200 shares, and nearly half-a-million views as of 9 a.m. today.

Besides garnering these figures, the viral video also sparked debate among netizens after a few hurled insults against the contestant, calling her "idiot" and "stupid."

The respectful ones, however, praised the woman for being a true person after admitting that unlike before, when she was still young, she no longer uses a sanitary napkin.

"Whisper" in Filipino is "bulong" and not "napkin."

Some wrote that the Wowowin contestant's funny answer brought them good vibes.
