Congratulations are in order for the beautiful Miss Summit Philippines Nica Zosa who was crowned Miss Summit International 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
This is the country’s first international pageant victory for 2022!
Summit International Pageants promotes beautiful women, as well as their passion and their accomplishments. The competition empowers women to develop personal growth, leadership, self-confidence, and friendship.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful Ilongga last 2018 during an invite to judge Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2018. She is tall, beautiful and very articulate. What’s more, she has this easy way of engaging with people – a reflection of her charming personality.
Back then, I have always encouraged Vanessa Ann Ka’ihilani Caro to do the nationals. After reigning as Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2016, she focused on other priorities in life. She still maintained some visibility in the public eye, but not via pageantry. She can do corporate hosting and the like.
The video below is 3-years old. A Tahitian dancer, she has used this art to encourage fitness among young women.
Will Vanessa finally make a go for pageantry this 2022? I have a feeling she will.
I do try to veer away from politics-related blog entries as much as possible. But since this one involves Miss Universe Philippines National Director Shamcey Supsup-Lee and her participation in the upcoming national elections as First Nominee for the ARTE Partylist, I’m giving it this push since the group advocates for the welfare of individuals in the live events industry, among others:
The Philippine textile industry is tightly woven into the world of art, fashion, events, and entertainment. Advocates for Retail and Fashion, Textile and Tradition, Events, Entertainment and Creative Sector (ARTE) Partylist aims to formulate laws and enhance the implementation of existing ones that protect our local industry and its linkages, such as fashion, retail, events, and entertainment.
At the heart of ARTE Partylist is strengthening our country’s textile industry and acknowledging its impact to our culture and economy. Kung gusto mo ng trabaho para sa lahat, at proteksiyon para sa mga manggagawa sa creative sector, #MayARTE ka!
Suportahan ang ARTE Partylist, um-ARTE ka!
After Misamis Oriental and Iloilo City, the Province of Palawan is also getting their own pageant ready for next month’s local finals. Miss Palawan Universe 2022 will be fielded in Miss Universe Philippines 2022. One of the fourteen (14) wide-eyed contenders above will be sent to the nationals.
I am pleased that the competition is starting to level up at the provincial level. And this should encourage other places in the Philippines to follow suit. This is one effective way of discovering hidden gems and training them for the big leagues.
#Teaser: Aces & Queens will field twenty-seven (27) aspirants to three national pageants this year. Above and below are the beautiful backs of twenty-two of them during an orientation.
Posted @withregram • @aces_and_queens CAN YOU RECOGNIZE ANYONE? Presenting 22 of the 27 ladies completing Aces & Queens Class of 2022 who were present during the Final Screening and Orientation last January 22.
This year’s harvest of beauties was highly competitive – pretty, great personality, smart, intelligent and articulate. The tallest stood at 5’11, one was 5’10” and five were 5’9″. Impressive academic credentials. And all achievers in their respective fields.
The screenshots below show the engagement of Miss Universe Philippines 2021 2nd Runner-Up Steffi Rose Aberasturi to her boyfriend Karl Arcenas. Now what will this mean to the clamor of pageant fans for her return to national pageantry this year? Well, your guess is as good as mine.
There is pressure for the Cebu City accredited partner of Miss Universe Philippines to make a good follow-up for 2022. After all, the reigning titleholder – Beatrice Luigi Gomez – came from his end.
Sven Chua of Origin Artist and Model Management is pinning his hopes on one of his artists – Miss Millennial Philippines 2019 Nicole Borromeo.
Watch out for more about her soon!

Another lady who is being rumored to join Miss Universe Philippines 2022 is Katrina Llegado who reigned as Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2019. She was actually the last among our Queens to actually represent the Philippines just shortly before the pandemic brought the whole world to its knees. Last February 2020, she travelled to Bolivia for Reina Hispanoamericana 2019/2020 where she finished as Quinta Finalista.
Now that all her commitments to Miss World Philippines Organization have already been served, time to widen her pageant horizons. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see her screening next month for MUPh.
