All four founding individuals of Gouldian – Pawee Ventura, Macoy Manlapaz, Gian Quiballo and Mario Bergantiños – are my Facebook friends/contacts. But in the interest of Philippine pageantry in general, I have also decided to share what Gian exposed from his end. While I enumerated the people behind the group, please note that only the name of Pawee was mentioned in the said expose’.
This blog is open to posting the sides of all the other members of the training group.
Now there is one responder (name intentionally omitted below) who asked about his involvement with the training of the winners of Miss Grand Thailand which happened after Miss Asia Pacific World. His reply went:
I don’t want to make any premature conclusions here before even hearing the side of the other members of Gouldian. The statements in the screenshots above were made by and attributed only to Gian Quiballo.
Note: Before this topic went live, I specifically told Gian that I will be blogging about what he just revealed. His short answer was “Sure. This was so hard but this has to stop. I just lost a friend.”
