  1. its ok. Baka 5 days syang ganyan ang cut ng outfit. Tapos another 5 days syang naka tops and shorts. Tapos another 5 days syang naka sexy long dress. as long as she carry it well. Bravo janicel

  2. I just watched the video. I think her Japanese is better than her English. She’ll definitely do well.

    • Ayan nanaman ang walang kamatayang Leopard print dress!!! Buhay pa pala ang leopard print dress na yan?!!! Madami na ang nagtangka sa buhay ng dress na yan pero waley parin… immortal ba yan?!

      Kung ako kay Janicel sisilaban ko na yan after ko gamitin… para mapalitan naman ng bago para sa batch next year…Gusto ko na unahan ang mga kapitbahay sa pag-gawa ng collage for that special dress…. Ang duda ko e ipapa auction yan ni Madame everytime mag 10th anniversary ang isang dress. Ewan!

      • Keme naman…pinupuri ko rin naman si Pia pag gusto ko ang picture eh. kahit balikan mo pa mga posts ko. I swear! Antayin mo rin mga negative kong comments kay Janicel pag may di ako magustuhan. Mwahh

  3. Mega google translate ako. Yung photo ni Janicel with Chintya (who really isn’t bad looking at all) may nag comment: powerhouse (referring to Philippines) and the next powerhouse (Indonesia). Nakakaloka mga ilusyunada. Meron pa isa tumabi daw kay Janicel para mag rub off luck sa kanya. Funny lang.

    • At kelan pa naging powerhouse ang Indonesia? Sige na pag-bigyan na natin. LOL! Ang hindi ko lang gusto minsan sa ibang Indonesians eh kung manlait (although some Pinoys are no different) at tawagin ang Pinas na puro maids as if meron masama sa pagiging maid. Plus, ang dami din kayang Indonesians na maids sa iba’t ibang sulok ng mundo. Kainis lang kasi yung bansa naman nila is no better than ours.

    • @Laila, inaunderestimate nila si Janicel kasi alam nila background nito, kakapal ng mga fez, bulag ba sila? di hamak naman po mas lamang ng 100x na paligo si Janicel sa candidate nila noh…..

  4. Ang liit ng mukha ng lola nyo dito mga teh… yung ibang kalaban busog na busog ang pisngi at fez!

    • Oo nga, quite strange that she has such a small head which reminds me, my goodness, kasya ba yung MI crown?????? Naku, what if it’s too big and slips over her face???????

      • It happened na sa Bb. Pilipinas MI crown. Parang naging bracelet ng fez nya yung crown. It slipped over her face. I love that her face is small. Maganda sya ayusan especially pag ang hair nya meron volume. Dyosa lang ang dating…

  5. I’m just wondering does Bb pilipinas provides the casual attire of their queens? I think many designers will be willing to sponsor casual dresses just so their creations will be worn by our representatives. I like Parul Shah casual dresses. She looks classy .

  6. Based on these photos, there’s something about Janicel that draws your eyes towards her even if surrounded by other equally beautiful ladies. There is no single fault in her stars I must say.

    • Shes wearing almost the same style of clothes. Parang bumili ng isang dosena na ibat ibang kulay. Yung itim at grey magkamukha. Sana bukas orange naman at violet.

      • @Chararot, I think it’s KF’s strategy to give her one shade of her wardrobes maybe to emphasize her best assets. I learned Japanese people love conservative women yet elegant. Pamatay lang talaga itong katawan at fez ni Janicel even if her wardrobes are not so expensive.

    • Ayan na naman yung overly made up to the extent na alien looking na sya. I don’t like her here. sorry

      • @Jeremi one time lang patulan kita…Ok lang din daw…hindi sya nag aayos para sa approval mo.

      • hahahahaha ok lang Laila…pero in fairness naman sa akin… hindi naman lagi negative ang comment ko eh..depende sa picture na nakikita ko kung gusto ko ba ito o hindi. Gusto ko sya pag naka pony tail at malinis ang make up:)

      • Pia looks good apart from being stylish. Eh si Janicel ewan ko sa kanya bet ko pa naman sya. Shes very underwhelming right now. Magkakatotoo nga ang hula sa kanya

      • @jeremi na notice ko nga. Sala sa lamig sala sa init ka. Keri lang naman hindi naman pang komunista blog na to. Ako rin naman may preferred looks for pia kaso ang unrealistic i expect na iisang styling lang for her dapat. Soft and clean with minimal makeup kase di naman regular na mga tao to. They go to events they have photoshoots.

      • Dear Jeremi,

        I totally agree with you.

        Some commenters here once you have a dissenting opinion (and not to bash Pia for the heck of bashing), they would assume “nega” or anti – Pia ka. Naman. Who doesn’t want a Ms. Philippines to win in any international pageant? We all want the same. But believe you me , PIA is NOT beautiful at all in the above pictures. ALIEN- Looking is the right term. Garish looking. I had to look away because it hurt the eyes. Not fresh or young at all. Para syang make-up na nilagyan ng mukha. Lol.

        Please, we all want her to win…but that is not what a Ms. Philippines should look like. It is bordering on being offensive.

        I also praise looks her when praise is warranted. But this time, it is an epic fail.

        World Peace. =)

      • @Thomas, your opinion is well-respected. If you think Pia that way then so be it. heeheheheh
        Take care!

      • Echosera kayo mga mars ha!!! Don’t worry hindi rin kayo type ni Pia Papaya. It’s a tie! Hihi

        She’s sooo ready for MU. At oo, marami akong sinasabi. Hihi

    • Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder ika nga, Pia is definitely ready for the MU. She doesn’t look like an alien either. She looks so divine, fresh, engaging, endearing,fantabulous and sensational.
      Thanks Mars laila for all of these.

      • @Laila, sinabi mo pa Mars, she is blessed to have those assets Mars. Every woman is dying to achieve those curves and those boobs.

    • Oh! Steamy Thanks. nagbago ang ihip ng hangin! sana tuloy tuloy na ung ganyan! just dont be over confidence! wala sya sa MU.

  7. Her hair styling on the first pic is what hairdressers used to get extra height illusion. She is already tall but with this styling , She will look two inches taller. (That’s why Megan looks smaller than her on Ms. World 2013)

    • She looked simple but classy and sophisticated with that hairstyle. Classic. And yes, it adds extra height illusion. Kahit simple lang si Janicel pero pag itinabi sa mga kandidatang kumikinang ang damit ay nananatili pa ring stand out. Yan ang tunay na ganda. I think Japanese likes demure, classy and respectable women. Ala-Janicel Lubina.

  8. Watching my kababayan compete in beauty pageants it absolutely alleviate if not relegate the stress I have working here in California. Knowing Janicel background I’m am so proud of her. Kudos to you in supporting your family. I am excited and I firmly believe that you will be the winner of this pageant. Yung mga kaibigan ko sa Japan will be supporting you also. Mga nag file na ng leave na sila sakanilang mga trabaho yung iba nagpagawa na ng banner para lang sa iyo. Sabi ng mga kaibigan ko yung mga Japanese daw ay paborito si janicel. Just happy knowing it. Goodluck. And may God Bless you.

  9. mas maganda si janicel kesa miss thailand, mukhang oldy na si tae, mas hamak maganda cya during miss earth time…. janicel for the win, ok lang yan simplicity is beauty as long as she knows how to carry her self in public…. go go go philippines bring home the bacon!!!

  10. Do not fault Janicel’s provincial background for her failure to satisfy your urban snobbery. But in the end, without those superficial trappings as fab clothes and perfect diction, she is truly beautiful. She has charisma, sex appeal, and mystery about her that I’m sure will be noticed by MI judges the very people whose opinions matter more than what we fans and haters say about her. Go go go Janicel slay them all!

  11. Janicel is showing the real women, a beautifull women wo doesnt need to wear expensive and too beautifull dress to notice. its their strategy i think. ginawa nila simple si janicel but beautifull. bihisan man sya ng ganyan basta makita ang tunay na ganda at pagiging isang babae ok na. i think japan likes ung mga babae na karesperespeto. no need standout outfit basta maganda. tamang kilos at galaw. paguugale at syempre ung mind. i like that way of their strategy pero sana wag too conservative.

  12. Sayang… hindi ko mahanap sa youtube yung sa Rated K feature ni Janicel… Madame Laila… we need your online stalking powers ASAP! πŸ˜€

  13. Sana Iba na lakad Nya. Sobrang gaslaw ng dating Nya- parang si Bianca. I hope she got some training from bea

    • Bianca was a disaster during the pageant. Worst gown ever plus the fact she glide like a turompong malandi kaya ayun clapper and tita mo. Her face is not as divine as Janicel. Peace .

  14. Janicel looks exquisite in her own special way. She’s too pretty for that hairstyle. It’s doesn’t translate very well on photos and videos. It’s very experimental and must be reassessed.

  15. Baka naman strategy ng KF yan. They are riding Janicel’s hyped sa Japan as a poor country maid na naging beauty queen. Siempre, como mahirap, walang pambili ng mga bagong wardrobe. At di lang conservative mga Hapon, practical din sila. Kaya I’m sure she will be in the top 10 come Nov. 5.

  16. Hmmmm nakaka good vibes magbasa ng mga comments… lahat magagaling πŸ™‚

  17. I also find Janicel’s wardrobes not that voguish or super cool type but I have faith in her and also to KF. Her camp knows how to play the game in MI and this is their cup of tea. Let’s forget about these wardrobes stuff,look at how she projects on photos, she is very trained .Let’s just wait for further development as she continues to shine in Japan. So far these are the stunning ladies I notice:
    1. Philippines
    2. Indonesia
    3. Thailand
    4. Mexico
    5. Venezuela

  18. What do you expect from a poor kasambahay? To speak like an english professional?
    But at least she is trying to express herself in her own way.
    What is more important is that she is true to herself and she is sincere. That will make her win the crown!

    • I’m sorry Miss Tissa, how do you gauge sincerity and being-true- to -oneself from a 15-sec speech? Sige nga.
      Parang ‘world peace’ na man ang speech mo, lol

    • I agree Miss Tisa…

      The message that she conveys will be based on her own life struggles and experiences. Win or lose, she is my Miss International. πŸ˜€

    • Wow what do you expect from a poor kasambahay? Very obnoxious and this is uncalled for .

  19. Wag na kayong malungkot mga mars! She’ll bring home the crown for sure.

    Just
    Always
    Pray
    At
    Night

    Chos hihi

    • @Mitchesa , woww Mars ha ganito na rin ang peg mo ha, you remind me of Erick Mars in fairness sayo. Baka ikaw din yon Mars ha, heheheh choz

      • Echosera ka mars! hihi.

        Teka, bakit missing in action si Mars Erick lately? Anong ganap?

  20. Medyo sad lang ng slight kase yung friend ko na mas adik sakin sa kaka bantay ng pageant happenings, tambay sa Thai sites and Indo sites at bihasa din sya sa google translate, according to her pinag tatawanan nila si Janicel about her wardrobe. Kaya ganun nalang ang wish ko na pakainin ng alikabok mga yun pag makapasok o manalo si Janicel and yet I really feel na fault talaga ng stylist nya yun. Wala ba syang ala Maggie Wilson na mag gu-guide sa kanya? I mean inexpensive clothes can look expensive with the right styling wala naman satin makaka basa ng tags eh.

    Dapat kase sa calibre ng mga kandidata natin and sa reputasyon natin sa pageantry…wala nang masisilip. We have chosen really strong girls to compete, dapat sana at this point at mahaba naman prep time nila, pulido na lahat. Also is it just me or nasobrahan sa pag tan si Janicel?

    P.S. The black dress she’s wearing is fab. It hugs her body without looking bastusin. Nagpasira lang yung white coat na suot nya kase nagmukhang lab coat. I think with her, editing lang ang kailangan kung hindi na maremedyuhan dala nyang mga damit.

    • Kakatawa naman mga Thais and Indonesians- kailan ba sila nagkaroon ng fashion credibility eh lantaran namang lahat ng gamit nila at pagmumukha eh peke! pwe!

      Alam natin na our Binibini queens outfits could be better- that complaint is as old as Stella Araneta is old, but in the end, hindi naman grabe ang effect ng wardrobe sa chances nila to win. To this day, I am still amazed that Ara in Russia wore the clothes that she did and still managed to land Top 5. Just imagine if MJ- who rumour has it, has an extensive personal wardrobe of designer clothes- was allowed to use her own clothes in Florida??

      Feeling ko, alam ng mga letseng Thais and Indos na sore point sa atin yang wardrobe ng mga kandidata natin kaya ginagamit lang nila yan para mag-bash.

      But really, they wouldn’t know a genuine Jimmy Choo stiletto if it poked them in the face and gouged their eyeball out!

    • That’s what I hate with these Indonesian fans right now. They will mock and belittle the candidate yet they have no credentials whatsoever. I understand the Thai’s arrogance since they are have proven themselves but not the indos. They haven’t won a credible crown yet they think they own the place. To be honest their reps this year are clappers. They are only getting attention since the indo fans would spam forums and comment sites to scream attention for their rep. When one doesr notice their rep, they go mad and whine. They are very self-entitled to the point of being rude. I hate to generalize but I see this arrogant rudeness in every encounter with an indo online, especially during that Asia’s next top model. I wish Janicel could win to shut them up. Someone needs to burst their inflating heads.

      • Ayan o, hindi naman kagandahan contestant nila… sama mo pa si santolan… ganda lang ng presentation ng bata ni Osmel pero pag focus ka sa mukha lang e walang ganda ng damit ang makakasapaw kay Janicel… paano pa pag swimsuit portion na…

      • Ganda ng ilong ni Venezuela; I always get her confused with that ho from Dominican Republic who was in MU last year and sporting the same nose. Veneers aside, the only ‘natural’ beauty there is Indonesia; the cosmetic surgeon told her there was nothing they could do for her face hahahaha..

        Bashing aside, Janicel is arguably the best Filipina looking (and i mean the morn, exotic template) candidate we’ve had in years, even decades (Janine T looked a bit Chinese if that maked sense)

      • From this photo, you can easily notice the difference among the girls. Napakasimple ni Janicel very conservative, unlike the others na revealing ang mga dress. Pero lutang na lutang pa rin ang kanyang ganda. I think strategy yan ng kampo ni Janicel sa mga activities nila.

      • Actually, di ko gets ang hype sa Venezuela. As in close-up talaga, alam na alam ang ilong na peke. It distracts her whole face. Basta, hindi siya ang strongest Latina. Itabi mo yan kay Mexico at malulunod ang beauty niya. Seriously, walang nakakapansin sa horrible nose job niya? Akala ko noong una na maganda siya, eh photoshop lang pala. Maganda in motion, but sa stills, tsaka close-up pa?

        Hindi sa pagbabash ha, just saying my opinion. Maraming latinas na mas maganda pa sa kanya sa competition! Grabe lang talaga sash factor niya tsaka STYLING. Maganda siyang dumala.

      • Oo, walang double eyelids si Janine which is one particular trait that separates us from east Asians. Napansin ko sa ibang bansa… kilala ang mga Pilipina dahil mayroon tayong likas na magagandang mata… isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit maganda ang combinasyon ng Pilipina at ibang lahi… pero dahil common ang almond eyes with double eyelids natin e hindi sya ganun ka big deal sa ating mga Pilipino… Kung si MJ hindi almond eyes, si Janine e walang double eyelids, at si Venus, Shamcey at Ariela e malalim eyebags… Si Janicel ang gitna nilang lahat… Janicel’s eyes maybe ordinary to Filipinos but it is spectacular in the international arena… so dapat iwas sa weird colored lips para sa mata ang focus.

        Pagbigyan na natin si Pinochio.. hindi sya threat kay Janicel in my opinion… ayaw ng mga hapon ang malalaki mukha.

  21. Up do, beehive, hair bump lol…ganun ba ka perplexing hairdo ni Janicel lol??? Its actually a faux, faux mohawk, gets?? Not quite a faux mohawk- with a high, crested top and smoothed out sides- but a softer (even faker) version of it.

    Anyways, she looks radiant and poised though sometimes i question if this is the true her. I also wonder knowing that she’s quite young at 20, if she waited a bit more, would she even be better than this? I feel that she’s rushing along just because pageant fans lover her and are eager to see her compete, like now! And then there’s the fact that this for her is not primarily a learning, growing process, but as her livelihood. If she stops now, saan siya kukuha ng income?

    So there’s no choice but to get on this ride and see where it takes her; so just hoping and praying that the journey leads her to the best outcome possible.

  22. nice…. i wont mind the outfit and hair… feeling ko, strategy nina Janicel to. para magmukha cya demure na demure.. kse eto hinahanap ng org….

  23. I love Janicel, so good luck girl! But whose idea is the bee hive anyway? That hairstyle could end up being (pardon the pun) a hornet’s nest. I think a simple pony tail, or a classic bun would look much better.

  24. Janicel looks statuesque and pageant ready!

    Bianca Giotti’s dissappointing, embarrassing and humiliating showing of not even making the first cut, at Miss International 2014, set the dismal tone of what was to be an underacheiving Bb 2014 class. When Bianca walked on stage with that frumpy gold gown, she was doomed and not making the top 10 was justified.

    The difference this year is that Janicel is blessed with stunningly beautiful features and Ann Colis’ crowning at Miss Globe already has set a positive tone to hopefully a very successful season for the Bb Pilipinas class of 2015.

    Go Janicel Go!

    • Sorry, it’s Guidotti… LOL
      It really doesn’t matter anymore anyways πŸ˜€

      • I truly believe that Bianca’s exclusion had less to do with her capabilities (which she has plenty), her communication skills (which are pretty damn good), or her ugly gown as it was more of MI responding to Bea’s untimely bashing of the organization. IMHO.

  25. Eto ba yung bangong game ng BPCI na Pag demure effect ang mga wardrobe Nya?
    Dapat man Lang yung tipong expensive looking kasi yung napapansin ko yung mga damit Nya eh pang manang.

  26. Janicel take home the crown! Try not to have your nerves get you and you will nail them with your charm and sincerity

  27. Please drop the uhmm ano bang tawag dyan sa hairstyle na yan up-do something? Ponytail looks amazing on Janicel tho, I love it. I love her. Do us proud gurl!

    • I don’t like her entire look on that… the hair bump, the green dress and the pantyhose… makes her look like a guidette trying to be a school teacher or something.

      But she is beautiful… just be careful with styling I guess… The black dress look I love.

    • quiff. better pa na simple ponytail lang. she’s undeniably sexy talaga. love her still.

      • Noted. Very sexy indeed, kahit ata 3 patong ng damit suotin kitang kita pa din ang curves. Sa hairstyling lang talaga magkakatalo.

  28. I had a good laugh watching the video..at this stage, concede na ako sa comm skills ni janicel..understandbly, it’s really her waterloo. But then, chill na lang tau..this is not a perfect world. #positive vibes

    • Masyado kang apektado sa commskill? Si Guidotti nga napakagaling ng commskill nya, e hindi man lang sya napansin! Do you still remember how Melanie Marquez won?
