This version of Miss Supranational 2014 will be hosted by Udaipur, India
You can tell which one is the original by simply knowing which city will host Miss Supranational 2014. The ‘real’ and acknowledged contest will take place in Krynica-Zdrój, Poland, while the breakaway group (of Carsten Mohr
) will hold its finals in Udaipur, India.
Will this confuse you, dear readers? Probably. Just stick to the competition where our own Mutya Datul will relinquish her crown and which is recognized by different country directors (such as BPCI). This should ease the doubts in your mind.
Now back to this ‘eastern’ version of Miss Supranational 2014. The local franchise holder is Ovette Ricalde of Megastar Productions. And he is currently casting for the girl who will represent the Philippines in Udaipur and henceforth will carry the sash “Miss Supranational Philippines” (obviously, Bb. Pilipinas no longer bothered to register the title used for Elaine Kay Moll and the first half of Mutya Datul’s reign).
I wonder if an already familiar face and name will take interest in this one. Will KF or A&Q bite? Anyways, pageant duration will be from October 15 to November 1. ;-)

These ladies are training in Manila
Two more foreign beauty queens are in Manila for pageant training by Gouldian. Just the other day, Miss World Guyana 2014 Rafieya Husain and Miss International Guyana 2014 Ruqayyah Boyer (remember her from Miss Universe 2012 in Vegas and Miss World 2013 in Bali?
) safely arrived in the country for their separate sessions.
Rafieya will be staying here till September 13 for the full course, while Ruqayyah (who has already been polished during two previous stints in the big-league pageants) will only focus on personality enhancement and Q&A which should keep her busy till September 9.
Miss Grand Panama 2014
And it doesn’t stop there. Come September 11, Miss Grand Panama 2014 Carmen Librada de Gracia Navarro will train for one week before departing for Bangkok to participate in Miss Grand International 2014.
It sure will be a busy season ahead for Gouldian! :-)

Mr. Gay UK Stuart Hatton Jr. is now Mr. Gay World 2014

” ‘I WON MR GAY WORLD!!!’
‘I am still in a complete daze about it and overwhelmed. But this is just the BEGINNING. Now it’s time to show the world what we as a global gay community are made of.
This is a joint win that i share with all my fellow delegates from around the world. Together, as a family we will fight to bring equal rights to the entire world.‘Alone we are only one voice but together we will ROAR! STAY PROUD.’
In this article from Gay Star News, it made mention of the other winners in the magic circle. Kyriakos Spanos of Cyprus and Robert Lowlor of Ireland placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
Congratulations, Stuart! :-D
This guy is a definite looker in person!
There is a good reason why I picked John Israel San Luis of Santa Maria, Bulacan as one of my favorites in Misters of the Philippines 2014. He looks so refreshingly different in person – and in a very good way. Most of his pictures don’t give him enough justice. His face definitely requires to be photographed from the right angles and he needs to be conscious about which side he should put forward once the cameras start clicking.
Raised by a close-knit family, John Israel’s advocacy is for the elderly. In his online bio, it states that “My parents’ compassion for the needy and the elderly has provided a strong impact of my being. After two decades and two years of my existence in this beautiful gift of life, my passion to help the elderly, those that are housed on homes for the abandoned aged persons, and those elderly-on-the-streets has a strong desire for me to help them and provide them homes, shelter, support, affection, health needs and love with deep respect for them.“
My close encounter with John Israel
This six-feet tall Tourism Management major from Far Eastern University – who is also being tagged by his FB followers as the special someone of former Bb. Pilipinas candidate Rose Pujanes – deserves more notice than what he is getting right now. He may just be a simple guy with simple dreams. But in the competition, he could definitely offer something more.
Who knows? He joined Misters of the Philippines 2014 to have himself molded into a better person. He just might get a just reward for wanting to improve himself with a clearer career path in the short- and mid-term.
If you wish to give him support, cast a vote for this Bulakenyo HERE.
Elle Ramirez, another GMA Artist Center talent, is also considering MWP2014.
I never saw this coming. Truth be told, I was actually a bit surprised when I heard that another showbiz-connected name is being talked about as looking at the possibility of joining Miss World Philippines 2014. Fresh-faced TV personality Elle Ramirez – who was a runner-up in the female division of the network’s Protégé
reality search last 2012 – is reportedly the entry of GMA Artist Center for the pageant.
While 20 year-old Elle has a middling height – hovering marginally around the 5’5″-5’6″ range – it cannot be denied that she has the beautiful looks to go with acting, dancing and performing as her talents to share.
Let’s watch out if this doe-eyed young lady will eventually take the plunge. ;-)

To all the Laura fans out there. There is this cool article
posted by Student Writer Krista Rodriguez that recently came out in the Lifestyle Section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer titled ‘Courtside Queen’, the focus was on Bb. Pilipinas 2014 1st Runner-up Laura Victoria Lehmann.
While Lau may be busy juggling time between her Ateneo de Manila University studies/UAAP courtside duties and commitments to BPCI, she remains the sweet and unassuming beauty I met during a private Aces & Queens Presentation held last January.
Let’s see if she is even entertaining plans of re-joining Bb. Pilipinas at this point. ;-)
