  1. CALLING ALBERT KURNIAWAN OF A&Q. PLEASE CHECK YOUR GIRLS MAKE UP AND HAIRSTYLES. BEFORE YOU WERE EXPERIMENTING ON KIM SUIZA EYEBROW, NOW ON BIANCA’S HAIR AND ALSO YVETHE’S MAKEUP… PLEASE GET OTHER EXPERT OPINION ON YOUR TOP GIRLS STYLES.

  2. SOMEBODY HAS TO TELL A&Q THAT YVETHE SHOULD STOP WEARING RED LIPSTICK COZ IT MAKES HER LIPS WIDER WHEN SHE SMILES. SHE LOOKS LIKE JOKER AND HER EYE BROW ITS TOO HIGH.

    • For me, they have to teach Yvethe to TONE DOWN her makeup. Kasi parang foundation day everyday galore cya sa sobrang kapal ng makeup together with smokey eyes and yes the dark red lipsticks… Sana ibagay ang makeup sa pupuntahan specially if it’s just a sponsor visit. She’s beautiful even without makeup so I’m sure she will still standout even with minimal makeup. Kahit i-tone down lang ang eyeshadow and lighter shade ng red lipstick lang if they really insist on using her signature red colour…

    • Exactly my concern. Ang ganda ni Yvethe pag light ang makeup. She is more appealing. I remember her nude/pink lip shades during the screening days, ang ganda ganda nya. Pero red daw kase ang lipstick du jour ni Yvethe as part of her packaging. Her handlers know what they are doing. Can they make her look versatile by changing her makeup style? Consistency doesn’t mean the same look over and over again, does it?

      • Mother Dawn, PAKKK! Natumbok mo! Gandang ganda nga ako sa kanya nun during her screening days. Pwede naman concealer then a bit of powder foundation lang. Kayang kaya ng Naturactor and Cle De Peau concealer ang eye bags and they’re very long lasting!

  3. Naku di dapat maging isyu ang accent ha. Ang isyu dapat eh kung articulate sila and can express themselves clearly in English or any other language they want to speak. And mga Latina or even Indian beauty queens ang thick ng accents hindi naman isyu. I think tayo lang ang particular sa mga accents natin. If you live outside the Philippines in a place where it is a melting pot of different cultures like NYC, you will hear different accents and you’d realize there is nothing wrong with your own. Ang ayoko lang yung tameme na who can’t get his/her message across clearly kase natatakot magsalita sa salitang banyaga. And please there’s nothing wrong with Yvethe’s accent or even Mutya’s. That’s part of their charm and appeal.

      • Naku Mr. Reyes, pahinga ka muna sa blog ni Tito Norms. It’s playing a trick on your brain. Ha ha. You are one outspoken person and I admire you for that. But a lot of the other commenters here are also outspoken and are very knowledgeable so be very afraid. Oh, one tip: take everything with a grain of salt, including what I’ve just written. πŸ™‚

  4. I knew it. Yvethe’s accent is gonna be an issue for those people who always find flaws in everybody.

    She mentioned in the video, “KAPWA BICOLANO”

    KUNG HINDI KA BICOLANO, HUWAG KANG SASAGOT. HINDI PO IKAW ANG KAUSAP.

    PROBABLY, THE QUESTION WAS, WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE OF BICOL.

    SHE CHOSE TO ANSWER IN THAT KIND OF ACCENT BECAUSE THAT IS THE WAY BICOLANO’S SPEAK.

    AND IN HER PLACE IN ALBAY, “PATULOY AND SUPORTAHAN” COULD PASS AS BICOLANO TERMS.

    WELL, IF YOU GOT A PROBLEM WITH HOW YVETHE SPOKE, THEN, YOU MIGHT ALSO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH ALL BICOLANO SPEAKING PEOPLE.

    Have a Blessed Sunday.

    • Josh, what is the issue here? Is it the way she speaks English or Tagalog. My understanding is the former since the latter doesn’t matter at all in the international scene.

  5. Bashers? Dexter Co dear, I so love the fact that u had the decency to use such strong word. We don’t need to really dfine it for us to really comprehend as to what is really the meaning of such word. Can u remember the time when u were the very frst person who highlighted and painted such strong comment bout Pia about her attitude? Or would u like me to refresh ur memory? The problem here is that we are so fond of noticing even the littlest amount of flaws of someone’s bet to the point of forgetting on what we are really doing. Very true that it doesn’t require Yvette to speak her mind on that video, which was exctly the basis as to that argument was formulated. Argument pllus example is equated to a strong point and claim as supposed to saying something just for a lousy and flimsy reason of “BASHING”Pia. Now my question is: Give me ur concrete dfinition of the word Bashers. Maybe then u would realize that u are against ur very own argument. Saying that someone never heard of Yvette expressing sensible ideas on a certain issue is never tantamount to saying that she cn’t speak(i am excited for her on the q and a). Those are 2 different things! Let us be very logical here and be very careful bout using the word Bashers! It doesn’t require a brilliant mind for us to know as to what that word really means literally and figuratively! Feel free to express ur response and answer my sentiments 1 by one and point by point! Have a Blessed Sunday…

  6. Hindi ba ingleserasi Yvette? She has a very thick accent on her interview with ABS CBN. Ja is very bubbly, in the video dancing in bikini, she might pull a surprise!

    • I agree on Jaja , she’s looking better and better. As for Yvethe’s thick accent, are u referring to the way Filipinos usually sound when they speak the international language? I don’t think it matters as long as Yvethe gets her message across with confidence and clarity.

      • STOP… WATCH… LISTEN!!!

        Now, if you find that accent as THICK, then I can conclude that at least 34 of the candidates are even worse. Sometimes I really find the comments about Yvethe Marie unjustified and without basis. Some said that they have not heard her talk with great sensibility but in that video, how can she talk sense when she is not even required to talk? Well, the bashers can’t stop trying but all I could say is that all the negativity they are throwing at Yvethe Marie are actually much more than deserved by their respective bets. Grow up bashers!!! πŸ˜†

      • Mitchell, Kung casing sipag lang ako ni Koya Dex maghalughog sa blog ni Tita Norms regarding dyan sa “accent” issue. Major LOL!!! πŸ˜‚ At gets na gets ko ang sinasabi mo haha

      • Alam mo, Sheena, polarizing kasi sa akin itong si Fabs. Minsan, nakakainis, minsan naman okay siya. Pero nagagalit din ako kapag namimintas siya. Sa tanang buhay ko na manood ng BB, ngayon lang kasi ako nagkaroon ng bet (kasalanan kasi ni Norman’s comprehensive coverage, hehe). I can’t remember the last time that I placed my bets because I am 100% supportive. Pero, gusto ko talagang si Yvethe ang wagi.

        Thank you for your wisdom and understanding, sister!

      • Mitchell, ang bukambibig ko na madalas e, DEDMATOLOGY! πŸ˜› Masanay ka na sa ibang nilalang dito pagdating sa bashing na yan. I’ve seen the worse last year kay Ara. I doubt na mababawasan this year yan and in fact lalong lalala I think dahil sa sunod sunod na pagwagi ng mga kandidata natin nung nakaraang taon.

        No problemo! SIno sino pa ba ang magkakaintindihan dito kung hindi ang mga parepareho ang wave lenght at IQ πŸ˜‰

      • Mitchell, I still love u . If u read my comment more carefully, you will realize that I am not bashing Yvethe at all.
        I don’t know how Yvethe is with her English . I assume it’s okay since my understanding is she’s lived in Korea ( I maybe wrong). But thick accent or not, it doesn’t matter as long as she can deliver with sense and clarity.
        That’s all.
        And to Sheena , it’s not just what you say but it’s the way you say it that makes my blood boil . Who the h— do you think you are to talk that way? The nerve

      • And to Sheena, stop fraternizing with your friends here in order to prey on innocent helpless lambs here
        And about IQ? Don’t even go there

        Pangatawanan mo yung Dedmatology mong yan
        Grrr

      • C’mon Dexter. I’m actually behind Yvethe on this one.I don’t care whether
        Yvethe has a thick accent or not ( whatever it means). It’s the sense of what she says that matters most.

      • I intentionally posted the video under you to comment on it because you love commenting. I was not accusing you of anything at all. I swear!

      • Thank you, Sheena! I also witnessed those Ara bashers and it drove me bananas. You’re right, this year is more intense.

        Fabian, don’t worry, I am not mad at you. Next time, deadma na lang ako. And btw, okay iyang si Sheena.

      • FR, I’m not even talking to you so you don’t need to be TOO DEFENSIVE πŸ˜‰ I don’t need to elaborate further as I don’t need to explain anything, thus obviously you’re the one who has issues, not me. πŸ˜› πŸ˜‚ #sorryNOTsorry

  7. Maintained as is!!!
    It’s still Yvethe, Pia, Bianca and Kris to duke it out for mup, Bb. Int’l, 1st RU, the “it girls” this year are truly ” gandang hindi na kailangang ipagtanggol” may the best binibini win and whoever gets the top title the barriers will greatly diminished as the journey of our 3rd miss universe crown will finally be ours!

    • Lavinia, I would include Laura and maybe Jaja and Kym . Kris is losing me but I don’t know. I’ll wait for the primer before giving my final selection.

    • Hi Ray. I’m with u on Laura. I have yet to see more of Emma. Right now, she’s not even part of my top 15

    • Wow, Bianca. And Joy Marie are a lot more beautiful when the y talk. And yes, Yvethe has a thick accent with her Tagalog .
      Hannah Marie is very cute. And I keep forgetting about Sheena Manuel–she is stunning.
      Another worth mentioning is the other half Indian. She looks like shes got great personality

    • Jaja looks a lot better in still pics. It’s the opposite with Yvethe who is more gorgeous on videos( somehow the ‘fake factor’ disappears )

      Well. I’m everywhere with my opinions. I hope I get a better idea of these. Girls after the primer next week. I wish I could see them in person (: but …

  8. Still Pia versus Laura based on these pics alone.
    Kym and Jaja looking great.
    Kris and Bianca not in their best here

  9. I’m loving Emma Tiglao everyday. She looks gorgeous in her casual wear and gym outfit in recent pics. She is telegenic in ABS-CBN clips of the pageant. She’s a breath of fresh air. She has said she is gunning for MIP title but me thinks if she does really well on March 30, she might end up winning the plum crown. If BbP chooses to stick its gun and award MUP to A&Q, and International to KF, then I have a feeling Emma might pull the rug under Kris’s nose. I’m a fan now.

    My Mariane has finally shaken off her mediocre performance during the fashion show event. She is in her top fighting form – bubbly, sophisticated, free-spirited, and gorgeous. She’s got this awesome personality during the ABS-CBN interview and dancing in the bikini clips. You can’t help but gravitate towards her. Someone has said that a beauty queen must have that kind of appeal and charm where the moment she walks in the room, all eyes are set on her. I think Mariane can be that someone. Konti pang push! Hello Fortaleza! πŸ™‚

  10. Julian Aurine looks so fresh and vibrant in these pics… her hair looks so thick and healthy!!! πŸ™‚

    • I agree with you, C2F!

      You should know by now that Julian Aurine is actually one of my top bets and you are probably wondering why I did not appoint her any crown when:
      – She looks young and fresh
      – Her height is very good between 5’8″ and 5’9″
      – She probably owns the best abs in the batch
      – When she does her strides, she seems walking on air, a technique that she only does
      But still there’s something missing in her beautiful face and one of our co-readers identified it on her casual e-interview with Norman. Though she is beautiful, she seems to lack that queenly look. I am sure this could be fixed by good styling.

      Is she open to the idea of rejoining next year? I only want her to get either MUP or BPI? I am sure she would be ready by then to capture any of those crowns. Simply my opinion…

      • She is 24 next year…
        what did the co-reader mention on what’s missing?

      • He said something about being QUEENLY! Next year MU can crown someone in that age range but definitely not crowning a “dame” this year. πŸ˜‰

      • Ahh your referring to this comment:

        I have been following this lady since the first day. She has the most stylish catwalk in the group. Her face is fresh, young and really beautiful. Her handlers should work on it to look more queenly.

        @Dex

        In referrence to this comment…

        I disagree with both of u… Mutya datul was fresh looking with a vibrant smile and it’s one of the factors why she won Ms. SUPRANATIONAL… Julian in comparison has a better body proportion.. but if she doesn’t bag any crown.. it’s impossible for Julian not to get any prize from the sponsors… She’s like a walking billboard and live TV commercial for all those product sponsors. Looking regal will only equate the opposite.

        JULIAN AURINE FLORES FOR THE WIN!!! πŸ™‚

      • Well it “seems” you just want SUPRANATIONAL for her. I want her for a more prestigious crown. This year would definitely be tough for her to get either MUP or BPI. Good luck! πŸ˜‰

      • *Julian has a simillar vibe as Mutya Datul but julian has longer legs and naturally sexy silhouette..*

      • I just wana keep it modest and so does Ja…

        Thanks for wishing her luck..

        As of now..
        It will still depend on the coronation night!

    • Sister, have you seen her pic dun sa Gold’s Gym visit nila? Bumubootylicious lang naman ang Jaja. Hehe!

      • Yes ive seen it! … namessage ko na agad ke tito norms… bka next post… i was amazed on how the other girls looked soooooo different without heels… si Aiza Feldona lang and Julian Flores ang halatang natural na maganda even without heels and with normal clothes…

      • Don’t talk about IQ. Let others do the talking on your behalf. It makes it sound like you’re from Hamburg

  11. At sinong nagturo kay Kris na magsuot ng ganyan na exaggerated necklace?! Looks very tacky 😦

  12. Sa pic na to, lamang si kris vs. Yvethe..pero stuning ung pinaka last na girl d ko kilala eh….just my opinion..

  13. Bianca looks better in that picture… Most of the time her hair is a mess. She has to hire a better hair stylist.

    • I agree Hunk that she looks a lot better in these photos. Paging A&Q to work on her hair and come up with a style that would suit and make her look great all the time πŸ™‚

      • Yes, I also like her on a pony tail just like her picture on the swimsuit.

      • Wavy hair is also alright but too much extension to make it big doesn’t really do her a favor because it only makes her look older.

      • Hopefully A&Q can come up with a hairstyle that would bring out the very best in her. This girl is very smart and I only want her for the MUP 2014 crown nothing less. She’s beauty & brains. It’s just a matter of transforming her into what the MU organization is looking for. And I believe A&Q is leaving no stone unturned to cover all the basics and beyond. With Molly and Paula around for the BBP2014 coronation night, I can just see Bianca succeeding Ara as the next MUP onward to winning our 3rd MU crown in Brazil. With Megan winning MW 2013 & set to becoming the best MW ever, I just have this feeling that Mr. Trump & the MUO would like to see a Filipina win & wear the MU crown this year & be the best Miss Universe ever. And Bianca fits that bill πŸ™‚

      • SHE SHOULD “NEVER” COMB HER HAIR BY SIDE PARTING, INSTEAD DO THE PARTING BY THE MIDDLE JUST LIKE ARIELLA.

  14. If I may add, MABG looks like a Barbie doll in her solo candid shot. Love it πŸ™‚

  15. I can see all my faves in the pics. MABG sporting her hair straight in casual wear ? Wow moment I’d say. She looks really good. I’m kinda seeing a moderate but good transformation in her (ala Ara) that would probably wow us even more come March 30th. Nice pics Norman ! I can tell you’re up early (around 6 am Manila time) 4 pm MST here in Utah. Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

      • Guess that’s good for you then πŸ™‚ . I’m still @ work trying to get everything done before I leave lol. Take it easy now and thanks much for all you do, and for making your blog # 1 β™₯β™₯β™₯
