Another Reniel Villareal shot from Joy Arguil
Mister International Philippines 2015 Reniel Villareal has gone past feeling the endless pressures of the competition. He knows that the remaining days of Mister International 2015 are crucial, what with the Preliminaries coming up on Friday and the closed door interviews on Saturday. But if he wants to enjoy the whole experience, there’s no better way to play the game than to let it flow. He is giving it his best shot as the host delegate and #ForThePhilippines. If a back-to-back is in the offing, then so be it. Otherwise, he continues to enjoy the company of new friends among the candidates. He has shown his warmest and most endearing self to everyone, short of nailing the Mister Congeniality award if you will.
Between now and Monday, November 30, Rein will stick to the plan and put his best foot forward all the time. But he will also take in the joy of brotherhood and camaraderie he has established with his foreign counterparts.
After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience he wants to cherish forever. He could win Mister International 2015, but he could also just place. Regardless, there will always be good memories to keep him company long after the male pageant is over.
Best of luck in the days to come, Rein! :-)
For all the Super Reingers out there, this one’s for you! (Photo credit: Joy Arguil)
Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach stated that she will definitely wear a Filipino-made gown for Miss Universe 2015
In this article
from ABS-CBN, there was a statement that went this way: “Wurtzbach assured that she will definitely wear a gown created by a Filipino, although she refused to identify the designer.
But don’t take it that the image I used above of our Queen is what she will wear for the competition. Everything’s still hush-hush about the details. And let’s just say that the suspense should be all worth it. After all, anything made by one of our Designers should be cause for small celebration. What is more important will truly prevail. :-)

Before my Final Predictions this coming Sunday, allow me to share the ten guys on my short-list for Mister International 2015 (Layout by Jerome Aquino Caducoy/Photos by Joy Arguil)
This coming Sunday, November 29, I will be coming up with my Final Predictions for Mister International 2015. But before I even venture into that, let me share the ten (10) delegates who are in the thick of the fight from my own vantage point. While I am not stating their rankings to be the way it will all boil down to come November 30, my gut-feel is that most, if not all, of them will definitely figure out in the ultimate tally.
And so, from among the thirty-six official competitors, the ones occupying my ten-highest positions for now are:
1) Daniel Barreres of Spain
2) Pedro Mendes of Switzerland
3) Fernando Alvarez of Puerto Rico
4) Andrea Luceri of Italy
5) Freds Rivera of the Dominican Republic
6) Reniel Villareal of the Philippines
7) Chris Nayna of Australia
8) Jakub Kraus of the Czech Republic
9) Rafael Angelucci of Venezuela
10) Anderson Tomazini of Brazil
The likelihood of a final shuffle is still imminent. I am taking my sweet time in analyzing the more intangible factors that could affect the actual rankings of the judges. Attitude and personality are very crucial swing parameters to push someone up or down or plain middling. And in pageants, regardless of looks and hype, it will serve my predictions well to choose someone who can potentially work and reign in harmony with the Mister International Organization of Alan Sim.
Let’s see who really has all the ingredients to become the successor of Mister International 2014 Neil Perez. ;-)

Winter has arrived in Poland for the Miss Supranational 2015 Candidates
Miss Philippines Rogelie Catacutan and the other delegates
By now, winter has arrived in Poland. And the candidates of Miss Supranational 2015 – especially the ones coming from tropical climes – are enjoying their first experience of snow like little kids out in the park seeing the cold white stuff falling from the sky.
Competition for the title will shift to high gear anytime soon. And Miss Philippines Rogelie Catacutan knows how important it is to make a good showing in the preliminaries to sustain the momentum started by the victory of Ann Colis and the respective placements of Parul Shah and Janicel Lubina. She has it covered. And our hope is that the judges will see in our bet the winning qualities that made her Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2015 in the first place.
Keep it up, Rogelie! ;-)
Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach for the latest Dear David episode on Rebonding
Here is the latest episode of Dear David with Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach which could also be her last before leaving for Miss Universe 2015 in Las Vegas and will just resume afterwards. In this installment, rebonding is the subject matter. It should lead us to the next question then. Will our Queen sport long straight hair during her quest abroad? Or will she keep her mane flexible all throughout? This we’ve got to watch out for.
In the meantime, let’s all watch Pia’s rebonding episode with David Charlton now. ;-)

Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2015 Christi Lynn McGarry
Tomorrow, November 26, a double send-off will take place right at the Novotel Manila Araneta Center for Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2015 Christi Lynn McGarry. This one will be extra special because, apart from having two reigning Queens being feted for their upcoming departure dates, our most awaited Miss Universe 2015 will already start its latest edition by Tuesday next week, or December 1. And just to sweeten the event just a little more, I was told that it will be staged at the newly-opened poolside area of the plush accommodation which could give members of the media a preview of where future Bb. Pilipinas editions might hold their annual Press Presentations.
The double send-off will be strictly by invitation only. But you need not worry because I will definitely blog about the whole event soon after. ;-)
Pia for Miss Universe on December 20, Christi for Miss Intercontinental on December 18
Mister Spain Daniel Barreres for Mister International 2015
Yes, I titled this post in Spanish to grab your attention, as well as my followers who speak the language. Don’t ask me to write the whole text in the same, but you can expect me to talk positively about 21 year-old Daniel Barreres. He is the future Architect who happens to be Mister Spain in the ongoing Mister International 2015, and is one of the Top favorites to do well in the November 30 finals.
In a previous interview Daniel gave to Hola.com, this eye candy from Valencia believes that having a mother who is half-Filipino (and also born here) will work to his advantage as he has already been raised to appreciate the local culture. It was also his mom who taught him to speak English at a young age to make him bilingual at the very least. He did get to learn a sprinkling of Tagalog, but nothing that he can rely on for conversations.

And what could be Daniel’s best skill as an individual? In his own words (and as translated from Google), “Listening. It is something that seems easy, but it is not. When you listen , you empathize , and that’s when you can really help someone else.” And his area for improvement? “I’m too (much of a) perfectionist. It’s something that should change because in the long run, it will only serve to overwhelm me.”

Daniel could be a potential Mister International winner. Methinks he could be the closest – albeit remote- connection to a back-to-back victory, if Mister Philippines Reniel Villareal will not be successful in wresting the title from Neil Perez. But then again, I’m just being plain whimsical in this regard. This guy is very much qualified to take it all the way on his own merits.
So who’s for Mister Spain among you, my dear readers? ;-)
