  1. Sorry, someone has to say it. As beautiful as Maxine is, she will NOT achieve a back to back for the Philippines, those chances were squashed when Philippine’ decided to host Miss Universe. It would kill viewership and credibility to do a b2b crowning for the Philippines IN the Philippines, ESPECIALLY after WME/IMG took over. They’re trying to rebuild and rebrand a franchise, so crowning Maxine, as qualified as she is, would not be strategic or advantageous to them.

    Such a shame because Maxine really is an incredibly unique, beautiful, bubbly candidate– one of the most unique ones we’ve seen in a while. Let’s cheer her on either way and hope for a Top 5 finish. She’s already made me very proud.

    • Back to back is almost an impossibility. The best she can do is to represent the Phils and make us feel that she still deserves to win regardless of potential outcome or placement.

    • Pilipinas din lang ang gagastos eh di ibigay na kay 4M ang korona.
      Hindi naman pipitsugin ang ganda ni 4M.
      Wala na tayong pakialam kung maglupasay sa inis ang mga taga ibang bansa. Hindi na natin problema yun. We shouldn’t let their opinions control the way we feel.
      Wala ngang ibang bansang gusto at kayang gastusan ang pageant na iyan ngayong taon.
      Swerte ang MU at sinalo sila ng Pilipinas.

      • Yung Ms Teen USA nga wasn’t even broadcast on national TV sa Amerika. Hirap na humanap ang MU Org. ng gagastos para sa pageants nila.

  2. Good luck ladies on your respective international competition ! It’s going to be tough that I can say and to top it all, with all the hype and expectations, the nerves can get into each one of you as you prepare for your respective assignments. I still believe in the beauty of the Filipina inside and out.
    Go go go, girls ! You can do it 🙂

  3. Pasalamt si maxine d2 ang ganap ng Miss U..assured na sya ng semi finalist spot..otherwise, kung sa abroad ang ganap, tyak ligwak sya, at kakahiya kasi me ilusyon sila ng back 2 back…kili kili pa lang, loser na..sori.🙈

  4. hawak o inaayos lagi mga buhok, maarte si manalo eden, malaki cheeks nong intercontinental, boring si maxine at masyadong mahinhin, sa na maimprove nila.

  5. Max looking lovely as always.

    There’s something weird about Jen Hammonds styling i can’t exactly pinpoint. May pagka borderline th.

  6. Congratulations to each & everyone here in #normannorman for ur good effort concerning MissUniverese 2017 host in #Philippines next year.And greet #MissUniverse 2015 @piawurtzbach.

  7. Maxine looks gorgeous sa photo niya. BUT KATING KATI AKONG I EDIT YUNG SA UNDERARM PART!!

    Those are excess skin + shadows. pero naman, that’s Maxine, That’s MUP. mukhang hindi nagpo-post processing ang nag release ng photo na ito. they couldve lighten it a bit or makikita mo naman ito sa personal pag nag pose siya e. sana pinag pose pa siya ng iba.

    Anyway, kagaya niyo, parang “ano nang balita kay maxine?” ang tanong ko din before. pero para sa akin, tama lang na wala siya masyadong nilalabas, wala masyadong videos ng pasarela niya, di ba nga, sabi ni Pia, know when to shine, kung kelan ka agaw eksena.

    Unlike kay colombia (for example) parang nung umpisa, okay keri, maganda siya. pagtagal parang nakakasawa na din kasi. I trust them (BPCI and A&Q) naman. they know better than us na nagcocomment kung anu ano. Hello? Venus, Shamcey, Janine, Ariella, Pia, Leren, Megan.. let’s just wait guyths.

    • Mr. Maynilad, ano naman ang problema sa armpit nya?
      And besides kung may mga mantsa man yan or extra barbeque, pwede namang takpan ng plywood yan ah, nothing to worry about my dear.
      So, chillax lang.
      Kayang kaya ni Max yan.

  8. Nicole cordoves is a hit or miss for me. Sometimes she’s a wow but then on certain angles shes a wtf (sorry but just being honest)! unlike Maxine and Kylie I have reservations about Nicole. her beauty is not traditional like what miss grand is looking for. I’ll be very happy if she finishes a runner up.

  9. Last na bago ako matulog….ewan ko kung nasagap nyo na tong balita na to:

    powerhouseph_Brand New YACHT and BOEING PLANE to be used for the 65th Miss Universe pageant. Thank you Sir CHAVIT SINGSON. 😊🛥✈ #MissUniverse2016 #MissUniverse #RoadToMissUniverse2016 “Almost done deal na ‘yun. May plane at yacht na silang gagamitin. Ipinakita niya sa amin ang mga litrato ng yacht na umano’y nabili at darating ng bansa anytime. Pero ang Boeing plane na gagamitin ng candidates and representatives sa pag-iikot sa ilang lugar na paggaganapan ng pre-pageants ay nasa bansa na.” Translation: The yacht will arrive in the country any time soon while the plane is already here in the Philippines. The said yacht and plane will be used by the candidates when they travel around the country for their pre pageant activities

    • Chavit Singson dipping his fingers in next year’s holding of Miss Universe in the Philippines? Hmmmn.. #AlamNa!

    • Salamat sa efforts mars Laila. Tama ba na kuha ito during the 31st Annual AIDS Walk New York in Central Park last May that was hosted by the Gay Men’s Health Crisis? Ano exactly participation nya dito mars? Wala bang official photo releases ang GMHC with her? Para kasing nahila lang sya dito sa picture mo to pose with an advocacy tarps.

      • Nope recent to. Alam ko nag rerepack sya kaso di ko na mahalungkat ibang photos at busy mga tao now kaka post ng ms Venezuela candidates natatabunan na

  10. Di nyo pa rin bet? Ok naman styling nya, baka medyo natunaw lang makeup? In fairness sa kanya now, mas spontaneous na sya sumagot. Mas may energy na…I mean sa news clip na nakita ko ha. Kylie did gain a bit of weight. Medyo ilang weeks din sya sa Europe pero I know she’s working on it. Post ko nalang dito mga ganap…

      • To top it all, Lai, the statement must be catchy. The speaker should not let anyone stop and think for 20 seconds before he/she could get the speaker’s points.

        In beauty pageants, the judges have 3 seconds to think before logging in their scores after hearing a candidate’s answer to a question.

      • Ana,

        medyo long pero si Nicole Cordoves talaga yung nag e-explain ng ginagawa nila withought giving out too much…basically ina-aalalayan din talaga nya si Max.

      • That would be great, mare. I believe in Maxine, and that she is getting there. I am excited na for Miss U. I’ll cancel my tour in Prague to give way to Miss U. Wanna watch it live! Hihihi!

      • ganda ni Maxine! Mejo napa cringe lang aketch nung natanong siya about that law question. Mukhang naoverwhelm si Max kasi she started stuttering and her words got all jumbled up. Its okay! Practice lang ng practice! Kaya naman ni Maxine sumagot, I think it’s the nerves talaga.

  11. oh my gosh parang mga candidates ito sa barangay. Sorry pero sa totoo lang dalawa lang sa kanila yung medyo may laban sa semifinals….pero mark my word walang mananalo dito sa batch na ito.
    Yung isa mukhang transgender yung isa laki ng pisngi parang kamukha nya si Matutina parang caricature .lol. yung isa naman kamukha ni macuha the ballet dancer. Ah ewan wait ko nalang yung Miss World Philippines

  12. Wala man lang bang nakapagisip na iphotoshop muna ang kilikili ni maxine sa picture before ipamigay sa press? It could just be shadow, oo, pero such an eye sore. Reminds me of the lower and upper labia. Labyu! 🙂

      • Its not a shadow its the labia minora at labia majora.Kalorke na copy link kaagad ng ibang kampo dyos ko po.Please maging mapanuri muna bago mag post ng picture …..

      • Presi dent, sabi ni Andrew part daw ito ng psychological warfare ng camp ni Maxine. I don’t buy it. This is a clear negligence committed by our Binibinis’ handlers.

    • They are playing a game to deliberately mess up the minds of critics/detractors. This is a textbook case of psychological warfare.

      Hay, panalo na naman ang Filipinas..

  13. Why would some of the ruin their hair by having it colored brown?
    Asian women look gorgeous with black hair.
    Just look at Pia, her MU stylists never once colored her hair brown.

  14. The photos are not flattering! €#AllTeaNoShade

    Laki ng braso ni Kylie

    Oily si Maxine at itim ng kilikili

    Joanna magayos ka naman, kahit lipstick lang

    Nichole has returned to her old look

    The rest hmm…

    • Hello, Sunny. You have given a less-than-sunny assessment. Binibinis, take note! You cannot let your guard down even for an instant. Dito pa lang, sine-SLAY na kayo. Paano pa kaya when you are already abroad?

      Pero wait! Calma. Perhaps this is all merely STRATEGY, and the Press Conference an elaborate deception to lead naysayers, hear and abroad, astray.

      Perhaps the next time we see them together, ACHIEVE na. Let’s wait and see…
