2010, 2011 and 2012 are three of the most colorful and significant years of Philippine participation in the Miss Universe Pageant. It also adds extra glitter that everything came one after the other. But what does it really mean to the three beauty camps – Aces & Queens, Kagandahang Flores and Team JDV? A tiara-ful of iron-clad pressure, that’s what! Which leads me into thinking…..is Jonas Gaffud genuinely excited about getting the Miss Universe-Philippines crown for one of his wards and be continuously expected to come up with a Miss Universe four-peat? Or will his nerves of steel succumb to the extraordinary stress it will bring?
On the other side of the coin, is Rodgil Flores battle-prepared to make a Miss Universe comeback (Bianca Manalo was his last protégé to take part in Donald Trump’s roadshow) in a time when the country’s anticipations are sky-high?
Or is John dela Vega raring to debut one of his girls in the greatest beauty pageant in the Universe? Although he is still technically the original man behind Janine Tugonon when she joined the first time, there is something entirely different with guiding a girl from start to the absolute finish.
Whoever among them ends up celebrating with the top winner of Bb. Pilipinas 2013 will require a most magnanimous spirit as he will be faced with such an intense mission ahead. And as the applied saying goes, “three heads are better than one” so it is best to collectively pool their efforts for a possible record-setting Top 5 MU placement.
