  1. With her tireless efforts yesterday for the longest motorcade of any beauty queen, I have no doubt that she’ll be the best Miss Universe of all-time!

  2. Naka-heels ba siya the whole time while standing on the float for six hours? Sana naman naka-flats siya beneath the long gown.

      • lol ewan ko ba may nakuha nalang akong DM kaninang umaga. Shinare ko na agad. Akala ata ng iba ad kaya di napapansin. Maliit na mention lang kase.

      • miss tissa

        oo nga mars eh. hindi ko nga kilala yung iba. nagugulat din ako mag nag fefeed sakin ng info from Pakistan of all places. Pero feeling ko kase ang sipag ko mag comment so nakikita nila ako palagi na fair naman kahit di ko gusto yung tao. Others naman syempre may resources to travel or mingle with their group. Plagay ko kating kati mag share pero ayaw na manggaling sa kanila kaya pinapadaan sakin or sa ibang admins ng pageant pages.

    • haha mars may ticket ka na ba? nagkakaubusan na daw sa araneta
      dati akong researcher mars lol, kaso syempre iba yung energy mo mag research lalo na pag gusto mo yung topic. i just have fast fingers hahahaha

    • Good question Laila. How can we get tickets for the homecoming tribute this thursday? Kung nagkakaubusan, that’s good, meaning dudumugin ng mga tao yung event at di lalangawin. I hope to see her coronation walk, the one she didn’t get to do because of Harvey’s mistake. And this time its sweeter kasi sa harap ng sambayanang Pilipino sya rarampa.

    • Dandy Randy

      Nag open ticker booth kanina aa araneta. Last update ko at 1p.m walang pila at upper box pa pnapamigay nia. Free aya. Check fb for updates. 😋

  3. Like what Gloria Diaz said in an interview, the best thing about winning Miss Universe is that you will feel the love of your countrymen for the rest of your life. Sobrang saya ko para kay Pia, for our kababayan set aside a time of their day to express their love and appreciation for her efforts of bringing glory to our country!!! And I admire her stamina and endurance, her activities yesterday was super exhausting but she’s a trooper, love her sense of commitment. Wish her the best during her reign and may she share all her knowledge and experience to other future beauty queens, I believe she’s going to be a great mentor to them. Mabuhay ka Pia!!!!

    • Yep! And this photo proves that the Miss Universe crown is the nearest and dearest to Filipinos’ hearts. I don’t think any previous international pageant titleholder has had this huge of a homecoming victory parade, lasting several hours.

      • Agree. Based on old folks, the previous Miss Universe winners 4 decades ago had also their grand parade homecoming and people were in the streets cheering for the queens but this time is bigger and the route is longer.

    • yeah.me thinking after her reign ilagay ni sma si pia sa position where in she will be the boss in all decisions sma for appove nlang. im sure anything what pia ideas will be sure effective. not just a mentor i really want her to handle the whole management rather than SMA. i think complete na ang taong need naten para ma train ng husto ang next queens naten. pero next year pa lang makakapag start si pia sa bbp as mentor. she is good in choosing the right gown and she has best coms skill among past queens. bpci needs her.

  4. Guys sorry but what’s up with Pia’s dresses?! Especially the Malacanang pink and white terno was horendous!!! goodness we can do better!

    Now that she is Miss Universe I am expecting more fabulous and spectacular ensembles. Yikesssss

    • teh kasi pinoy designers daw ang mga sinusuot nya….same observation. Not that fabulous and beautiful parang 90’s ang mga designs kainis, buti na lang maganda ang mukha ni piyaya

    • omg i thought i was the only one….. All the ternos she wore were weird… The teal one was a lovely color, but it didn’t fit her properly. Same with the beige one,,, it made her look wider. And this terno is the worst by far. Parang hindi napagplanuhan ng maigi…. If Andrada wanted to create modern terno, hindi niya masyadong na-execute na maayos.

      • at dahil positive thinking ang peg ko today kahit super nag aagree ako sayo…iisipin ko nalang na yung weird skirt thing is a nod to the traditional baro at saya

    • @Wonderwall30

      You know if we compare Megan Young’s wardrobe to Pia’s, parang ang layo ng discrepancy. How could it be that Megan’s is flawless if the two of them are both Aces and Queens?

      Is BPCI the one at fault?

      Just asking.

      • Megan is Miss World org under julia morley depicts a different image, more serious kung baga. Universe on the other hand is fun and playful. Opinion lang po.

  5. TWIT TWIT CHIRIRIT Alert:

    Isang merlie daw ang di masaya sa new camp nya, kung saan sya sinulot ng isang scout. Panay bash daw sa kanya ang mga sisterrete ng new camp dahil sa pag jump in nya dito. No comment nmn ang rival camp (which is ang kanyang, original camp). Laking pagsisisi ng merlie kung bakit lumipat pa at nagpasulot sa kabila.

  6. If Ariadna had won, she would’ve been so bad at this job. No offence to her but I think her english would’ve been too broken.

    • IMG’s connections are benefiting Pia immensely. I’m glad they’re featuring her in fresh and relevant gigs. Super fortunate that she won in their inaugural year as they’re going all out. They’re also lucky that Pia’s super ready for prime time.

    • It could be improved, remember Pia at the start using words like ‘actually’ too often and stuttering at times with uhmmm.But Pia improved a lot.Getting better and better. So salute to Pia.

      • but if you compare Pia and Aridna, Pia has better english communication skills which makes her more qualified for the job. Ariadna is full of personality but like I said you can’t be speaking broken english when you’re a sport correspondent lol.

      • I didn’t say that Ariadna speaks better than Pia. I said it could be improved. Oh well, understand my statement?
        Sports analysts. Lol

      • I didn’t say that Ariadna speaks better than Pia. Understand my statement: It could be improved. Sports analysts.lol

    • Ariadna might be one of the hosts this coming MU2016. Harvey said yes when Natalie asked Harvey if it’s possible for Ariadna to host this year’s MU😲😲😲
      Maybe at least like what Shamcey and Ara did in the past MU 2013-14😃

  7. Shes really a workahollic. im sure pagod yan feel nya but she ignored those pain. just to finish her work. ang lamig lamig that night tapos ganyan suot nya. wow. thumbs up talaga ako sa kanya. glad that we finally witnessed a pinay crowned as Miss Universe and having her parade in more than 6 hours with full of smile and still fresh and shine brigth like a star. Those rainbow has a meaning im sure.

  8. was at araneta yesterday, in front of gateway at 5 pm for the parade.. which passed at almost 8 pm, kakapagod at kakainip maghintay BUT it was worth it.. the warmth of the crowd made up for the long wait.. beks of all shapes and sizes and ages and of different persuasions; students, lovers, office workers, mothers and little daughters were there.. the whole spectrum was there to greet Pia… it was one memorable and tiring experience, sana maulit muli…( another MU title whenever..)!!

    definitely, it’s more more fun in the Philippines!!!

  9. Kudos to the organizers. Despite the large crowd, the safety and security was never compromised.

    THANK YOU PIA! You simply amazed us with your energy. You have a very tight schedule from morning until evening and yet you still manage to wave and smile. Nakakapagod ang init, pero alam ko masayang masaya ka with the support from the Filipino people. It is an assurance that we all have your back – for whatever causes and projects the Miss U org has instore for you, the whole Philippines is with you. And to our Colombian friends – stop the bashing and let’s all move forward. Ariadna has had her share of fame already. It’s time to do other things and get a life.

    Mabuhay ka Pia! Salamat sa tagumpay at ligayang idinulot mo sa ating bansa!

    Mabuhay!

  10. It just dawned on me Tito Norman, the Third Filipinas Miss Universe has been crowned. Oh my, are you serious about retiring from pageant blogging? Please dont… I enjoy this blog too much for it to just be nothing but a memory.

  11. Naisip ko lang… ano kaya feeling ni Senator Angara kanina…

    Actually, he made a nice decision back in 2014…

    • I’m sure he’s glad that Pia did so much better after 2014. Actually, I’m still wondering about the ranking in 2014…as to who really got the highest place and lowest plave of the top 7.

      • @HANAKO..ANG HIGHEST PLACEMENT IS BIANCA GUIDOTTTI…THEN YUNG ASSIGNING TITLES THATS THE TIME CHEF STELLA’S COOKING COME TO TABLE…HER DECISION FACTOR OR I GUESS THE BPCI -THEY TRY TO CHANGE THE FORMULA OR BAKA MAY FACTOR KAYA YUN ANG PLACEMENT – C MJ LIGWAK MUP KASI SHES AGING NA THAT TIME – I GUESSS GINIVE AWAY NA NILA KASI BASED ON HER Q N A -HELLER IKOT IKOT SHA SUMAGOT I KNOW SINCERE PEG ANG SAGOT BUT WLANG SPONTANEITY…..KUNG MAKITA NYO LANG INTERVIEW NYA KAW KRISTETA AFTER MU – JUSKO KO LORD OUT OF RANGE ANG SAGOT- HINDI TUMPAK PRECISE OR POINT.

        AT NGAYON KO LANG DIN NAPAGTANTO – BASED KAY PIA INTERVIEW ABOUT TIPS FROM SHAMCEY – C MJ LIGWAK I GUESS GIGIL NA GIGIL SHA SA MU PALAGING PALABAN ANG MODE EVERYDAY KAYA COMES PAGEANT NIGHT NGARAG NA ANG LOLA -DI NA KAYA ANG PRESSURE WLANG GLOW SPARK–VENEERS NA LANG NYA ANG MAKIKITA MO HAHAHAHA….WELLL BOBITA NGA WLANG STRATEGY!

    • It was not the right time to win
      If ever she won that year as MUP
      Doral is to small compared to Las Vegas.And Trump highly favors latina.

    • pero watching this and seeing MJ, ang ganda nya lang tingnan. Year ni MJ yun talaga. Mabuti na rin nangyari yun. Kung hindi naligwak si Pia, hindi sya ganito ka pursigido mag succeed.

  12. Mabuti maganda panahon. Naka produce pa ng rainbow 🌈
    Alam ko happy si Pia. Sa controversy and sa inabot nyang bashing dito pa lang sa Pilipnas, kita mo pa rin na ang dami dami pala natin sumusuporta sa kanya. It may be in bad taste to mention this now, but yung turnout ng crowd kanina last time ko nakita sa funeral march ni Mrs. Aquino. Manila, Taft and some parts of the city badly need a paint “makeover” but the aerial shots are amazing at yung !ga Santol namamangha para daw pala America dito. Sa IG marami rin nagugulat sa city natin. Pero tameme sila at Hindi maka palag sa debate na “Filipinos are the best fans in the world”.

    P.s. natutuwa ako marami rami nang halaman at puno ☺

    • Di lang paint. Pansin ko yung pic na post mo kay Pia at Mayor Estrada yung background ng building ‘ basag basag na windows. Sa manila city office ba yun? Pero carry nya yung dress na violet n black, type na type ko napaka sexy.

      • Alam mo Ariadna true. Na sasad ako sa estado ng cityhall. isa yun sa fave structures ko sa Maynila pero nakikita mo yung walls, tinutubuan na ng foliage yung mga cracks. yung windows, cover nila folder or tarp kung nabasag na. madilim. basta ang sad.

    • miss earth org should make planting more palm trees in manila into a project. it will look great instantly

      • sunkist i super agree with you. i looooooove trees. dapat pamunuan ng miss earth yung pagiging green ng city. See what I mean?

        Pasig City aerial view:

    • Since ikaw and Go-To person for inside goss Lai, bakit naiyak si Pia nung paglabasa niya sa Novotel for the evening parade???

    • Pia is indeed a good example and a role model to the FANS Bashers and doubters.

      PIA at presscon:

      I will shake their hands and lets have a good start.

    • The bashers represent a tiny dot compared to the whole population who support Pia.

      You can compare the bashers to the “militants” who always bark at the government.

  13. Nakakapagod pala talaga mag cover ng event..nagundertime ako to be at araneta ctr by 5 expecting that the U.S. organizers will have things on time..dumidilim na pero ni anino ni pia wala..only to find out by 6:30 that pia and entourage just arrived cubao area..anotherlong wait and by 7:10 nag start na ung pagrampa ng smaller version ng float with madam and the rest of MUO on board..personally d ko type ung mala MMfF na float..it failed to showcase pia’s head to toe confidently beautiful winning aura at entry vantage point.while there is the lower back gazebo like structure, the roofing is somewhat low and it lessens the elegance of it all..looking at the pics during the pasay/manila/mkt leg, i find it less classy of having too many people on board the float..2-3 security/first aides should suffice, and with their placements less obstructive..i would be considerate to the sort of intimate parade at araneta ctr where madam and the rest of the MUO staff took their seats in what should have been the staircase connecting pia’s vantage points..only that this pink shirted camera guy took the more prominent posiiton atop which became obstructive and disruptive..there should be proper protocol and decorum aboard pageant floats in future parades..and the design should showcase the person honored..future designers should take their cue from floats designed in the US or elswhere..the float featured by norman here was even way better..it was a tiring day for us who trooped the streets, but more so tiring for our dear pia,

  14. MABUHAY!

    Just couldn’t believe her energy!
    From freezing New York to the polluted air and scorching heat of Manila.

    Once more,

    Pia
    MABUHAY!

  15. she’s amazing! i’m sure she’s feeding off from the love and energy of the fans. she still looks incredibly fresh after all that, too

  16. Hands Down. The best ka Pia! Very deserving and I know you’ll have a great reign.
