  1. Poor pasarela but she could probably pull an upset if ever star will be in favour of her this weekend. Her asset is her wits and height IMO. Good luck Joy!

  2. I like her because she is tall, very articulate and as they say truly beutiful in person. Best wishes and good luck, Joy Antoniette!

  3. I’m curious – is she really Fil-American, and by that I mean half-Filipino, half-American?

    • Think of filipino-Chinese? Chinese people born and raised in the phlippines. Get it Einstein?

    • Why don’t you call her cell phone and ask her yourself nosey rosie. 😀

    • Both her parents are Filipinos born in the Philippines… THEREFORE, she’s Filipino who was raised in the US.

  4. Beauty and Wit are there ! I think we need to see some energy and precision. I hope it’ll show up during the coronation night. 🙂

  5. WHEN I WATCHED THE PRIMER LAST NIGHT ONLY 2 STOOD OUT WHEN IT COMES TO BEING ELOQUENT IN ENGLISH. JOY DIAZ AND LAURA LEHMANN. I LIKED THE PART WHEN SHE WAS ASKED BY MISS INTERNATIONAL BEA SANTIAGO THEY BOTH CONVERSE IN ENGLISH. SO JOY HAS A BIGGER IN THE CORONATION NIGHT TO SNATCH THE MISS UNIVERSE PHILIPPINES TITLE AND LAURA LEHMANN AS MISS INTERNATIONAL. P.S . IF YOU ARE GOING TO PIN DOWN MY COMMENT BE SURE THAT U HAVE GOOD OBSERVATION ABOUT THE PRIMER LAST NIGHT.

  6. Sir Norman, at least how long should an aspiring Binibini stay in the country in order to establish residency po? I am an American citizen by law but I have Filipino parents and I was born and raised in the Philippines. I’ve been asking sir Jonas and his team but all they tell me is to screen first. I just want to know the actual number of months. Thank you po.

    • Di ko din alam ang sagot but im in the mood to answer everybody’s question. Why don’t you check the requirements for a Philippine Passport kasi yun yung nakatulong before kay Venus Raj. Pinayagan lang siyang mag compete after makakuha ng nun.

    • You need to have 6 months of residency before the pageant, you need also to have a Philippine passport and apply or have “red ribbon” from the Phil embassy in the US.

  7. I have a very strong feeling that she’s gonna get one…and I have a very strong feeling that this is a mestiza year….

    Wurtzbach for Universe
    Lehman for International
    Janson for Tourism
    Santiago for Supranational
    Hanah Ruth for Intercontinental

  8. Its not difficult to see Joy winning a crown… in fact she can end up winning MUP for all the right reasons.

    I have always maintained that the girl is tall- at 5’9 she is impressive (and thats a real 5’9)… given her background, her pedigree, her very Filipina beauty… its so easy for the judges to pick her as a winner…. Imagine the buzz about this girl among the people who might end up judging the pageant…. and we all know what type of judges will be invited.

    Anyway— she is related to Gloria Diaz— but I have not read exactly how is she related to Gloria? Is her dad and Gloria siblings? or cousins?…. for all we know, they are just distant relatives…. if she is really closely related to Gloria- why are we not hearing from Belle or Giorgina about her? considering she is competing, are we not suppose to hear her cousings tweeting her goodluck? Or maybe they are not close enough

    Anyway— I dont see why people should be disappointed if she wins… From what I can see, she is in better form and she has better potentials than the other MUP winners (when they were crowned).. like Janine and Ara (we all know they transformed into super beauties before MU)

    • She’s not 5’9. I’ve seen her. Yes, she is prettier in person and really likable. But, she’s definitely not 5’9″. I’m only 5’8″. But, even on heels, she’s smaller than me. Unless, I grew 5 inches in 4 months. But, again, she’s really nice to the public and I’ve said this before, she can really win a crown for herself. Huwag lang Universe. :]

      • Honestly Josh, Ive also seen the girl in person….. a few times and interacted with her…… If you are looking at a person of the same height or 2-3 inches higher than you, the visualization is that they are smaller (which is a pretty common impression)

        I used to think she was between 5’7-5’8 but she was listed at 5’9….. and BPCI is very strict with measurements lately (specially after that incident with a former winner who turned out to be 3 inches smaller than what she claimed)….. this is the reason why I kept on doubting her real height until after the official stats were released… if she 5’5 she would have been candidate no. 1 but she looks taller than the other girls listed at 5’6-5’7

        Also in the pictures and even on videos where they interviewed Joy, she was standing taller than Ara and about the same height as Bea

      • One of the photos of Joy Diaz that I took during the sreening.

        She’s really not 5’9″.

      • Thanks, Dex. Sinukuan ko na muna ang pagcomment ng photos. Sumasakit ang ulo ko. I’m restricted from doing it, I think.
