  1. I hope this issue is put to rest. The crabs are happy of any report of cancellation. I’m not surprised. Go to hell.

    DOT insists: No talk of cancellation of Miss Universe 2017 in PHL
    Published October 8, 2016 12:54pm
    By AYA TANTIANGCO, GMA News

    Department of Tourism (DOT) Undersecretary Kat De Castro denied anew the rumors that the Miss Universe pageant scheduled to be held in Manila on January 2017 has been cancelled.

    “I have met with them [Miss Universe organization] and partner groups and there has been no talk of cancellation whatsoever” De Castro told GMA News Online in a phone interview on Saturday.

    The DOT had earlier discredited social media posts claiming that the Miss Universe organization is eyeing a pull out from the Philippines.

  2. @Laila

    Sounds like Ines Ligron is an angry, bitter and vindictive diva especially if she doesnt get her way.

    Perhaps it stems from her beauty pageant days when she placed 4th runner-up at her local beauty pageant competetion. The problem was there were only 3 contestants!

    L😄L

    • Saluda,

      I think it had something to do with her botched partnership with BPCI although I can’t confirm it.

  3. Ilang araw nako kating kating sumagot dito complete with visuals… teka aayusin ko lang mga screenshots ko

    • Game start tayo sa umpisa….

      A few months ago, Ines Ligron together with her minions came to Manila to woo Pia into switching camps and allowing her to train Pia instead of AQ. Pia obviously declined but the middleman in this arrangement was a common friend names Luis who happens to work for Inquirer. After that, Ines launched a smear campaign against Pia on social media. The height of her smear campaign was a post with Ms. Colombia’s photo and a caption saying Pia got mad when she said Ariadna was prettier. The post didn’t stay long because it was deleted almost immediately but before it was deleted, Pia’s bff Harley, posted damaging comments against Ines and Luis for everyone to see.

      Exhibit A:

    • Then a few days ago Ines broke the news to social media that MU won’t be held here in January in which Kat de Castro of DOT immediately responded:

      Lasy week the VP of MUO was in Ilocos doing an ocular of possible places … fyi lang

      • This Ines has an ax to grind at PH. With all the kindness and hospitality extended to this lady, she’s doing these things to PH. The Pinoy lowly crabs are also riding with her.

        SHAME on you!!!!

    • Then this article from Inquirer was released. Who wrote it? Tadahhhhhhh Luis aka Ines Ligron Minon.

      So anong take ko dito? Hanggat di inaannounce ng MUO, ng DOT at ni Pia – hindi ko sya paniniwalaan kase shady talaga mga characters involved. Like you nakikisawsaw lang ako and wala rin akong official source pero last year matindi pag aadik ko kaka bantay ng updates so all of these post/delete/screenshot drama happened before my eyes. Hindi ko na masyado nabasa comments nyo since bordering on political discourse na sya. Ang sakin lang…pag nag weave ng storya lalabas lang na famewhoring na naman tong dalawang to (Luis and Ines)

    • Welcome back laila!!!!
      Kala ni ines maiisahan nya si Pia. Hahahaha. Hinde ko lang lubos maisip kung seryoso syang i transform si pia into a winner o lokohin lang. dati kase nakikita nya si Pia as Miss Universe winner dba? So kaya ayan kinausap nya si pia. Pero tumanggi kaya ayan nagingay sya. So dahil sa pag iingay nya napaghahalataang gusto nya pabagsakin si pia talaga. After her winning may nega post ulit si ines right?? Kung meron man meaning tama ang kutob na paglalaruan lang si pia para maligwak. Sa pag tanggi nya i admire Pia for being a good friend/person. Biruin mo she trusted pa rin jonas over ines. Pia is thirsty sa crown pero inisip nya pa rin ang pag titiwala kay jonas.
      So yung sa inquirer post. Si luis yon??? Nakalagay ba name nya don sa newspaper. How did u know that luis is a minion of ines?
      Anung reaction ni pia that time when harley shared ines post about pia and ari?

      Nga pala may bayad ang boto sa MGI. Anung say mo? Hahaha. And then na aamoy ko ang korona kay india. Dame nya yata pics don. Wala pa ako nakikitang welcome post ni nicole sa page ng MGI. Kahapon pa sya dumating don eh. Alams na!!!

      • Geoff,

        Luis, I forgot what’s his last name goes by ketsuplis on IG. He’s a stylist and at one point was Pia’s colleague in Inquirer. Common friend nila yan at one point and it just got sour along the way according to the damaging comments made by harley (Pia’s best friend). Minsan ko na rin naka bangga yan sa IG. Close yan kay Ines Ligron kase sila sila mismo nag scout ng models dito. Latest baby nila si Alaiza Malinao na namamayagpag ata sa south east asia. Bago pa sila nag ka initan nila Pia, panay ang post nyang ines kung gaano ka ganda mata at fez ni Pia.

        Luis if I’m not mistaken was the stylist na bitbit nila Pia dun sa Bohol shoot nila nung mashuba pa si Pia.

        geoff, I have a circle of friends on IG kaya through exchange of info and sa araw araw na kaka babad namin dun kilalang personalities na mga to sa pageantry. Luis at one point had access to the mikimoto crown na ipinaubaya sa Ligron after mag palit ng sponsor ang MUO na ilang beses nila pinost for Pia nung may talks pa na mag shoot si Pia wearing the crown. Ma- gegets mo naman dynamics nila and changes (parang pag may LQ) kung araw araw mo silang nasusundan.

        Hindi ko lang ma verify pero alam ko may slight involvement si Ines with BPCI that didn’t push through kaya may issue yan sa Philippine pageantry. Even mga posts ni Jonas may mention on “crabs” kase at one point mag kakaibigan mga yan.

        Sorry di ko na kayo ma replyan lahat. Limited lang wifi ko dito.

  4. Sa tingin ko lang strategy n nmn to n MUO para mag ingay. Well mga vaks, pageant season na kaya. Sooner or later magppress release n tong MUO na sa pinas nga gaganapin ang MU16. Kelangan nilang mapag usapan ng bongga dahil sa january pa ung pageant. They are selling news thatll make pageant afficionados go crazy and gaga as to where and when will be the final venue. Marketing strategy via publicity (be it good or bad)

  5. Good for maxine, the miss universe will not be held in the philippines, she has bigger chances to be notice…. go maxine humanda kana sa pag rampa mo.

  6. Kaloka mga tao dito.. pati pag di tuloy ang Miss Universe kay duterte sinisisi.. hindi man lang muna inalam kung anong dahilan.. kalokang mga yellow fever… hahahha

    • Padedeboy!!! Well if hinde matuloy. Very clear naman na pwedeng si d30 din ang may gawa. May right ang IMG or US na ma offend sa mga pinag sasabi ni d30. Anu sila walang feeling??? Mga galit kayo sa US pero ang dami PRO d30 sa US na makakapal din ang mukha. Support kay d30 pero nasa US. Bat hinde sila umuwi or sa china mag punta or sa russia kung talagang support sila kay d30.
      Pero iniisip ko din baka para pagusapan ulit sila like they did last year. Pwede din. Pero why kailangan pa ng ganyan. Eh kilala naman ang MU hanggang universe.

      • a lot of americans are asking me about duterte why he uttered such words.. and you now what? filipino americans are defending duterte. they said, that i answered the same as what other most filipino americans did. we support our president and those yellow fever are not going to win.. and now they understood. latinos are also on the side of duterte considering the rampant drug corruption in their country is somewhat similar to ours.

      • Not all Americans think the same and unlike most Filipinos, most Americans ay hindi balat sibuyas. Some of them even agreed with what D30 had said about America. IMG and MU are both businesses. They are apolitical.

    • @Johnny

      Impeach DU30!!!!
      Leni Robredo for President of the Philippines 2017

      Election 2017:
      LEILA DE LIMA for President!!!
      Sonny Trillanes for Vice-President!!!

      LONGLIVE THE YELLOW OLIGARCHY!!! 😀
      #DuterteistheDevil
      #USAisGOD

  7. I’m not a fan of your president but I’m a huge fan of Miss Universe. For god’s sake IMG/WME/MUO must make a formal announcement soon or else this waiting game is going to irritate MU fans. Travel plans have to be made, vacation leaves have to be filed. This is our Super Bowl and it’s disappointing to learn getting a host country has always been a problem every year. Kung Vegas ok lang – basta ba may definite venue na. ISIS threat, security concerns, political instability are just a gloss to the real issue in my opinion. I think the main and most essential reason is money – Kung walang down payment sa hosting fee, walang agreement signed on the dotted line. Money talks and Chavit Singson et al should give the right amount to stop this madness once and for all. Let’s start the ball rolling!

    • Let’ not forget why the US dropped those A bombs in Japan! Japan attacked Pearl Harbor first, then oneweek later, the Philippines!

      • And they are defending themselves from the millions of Native Americans attacked who attacked them.

      • And they are defending themselves from the millions of Native Americans, Iraqis, Libyans, Syrians, Afghans, Vietnmase and Palestinians who attacked them 1st.

      • @Iver

        I agree! Japan desserves to be massacred just like Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria!

      • @Iver

        Of course not, why would I want you to be murdered by the Americans?

      • @Iver

        Yeah, I hate Duterte! I hope the Americans would assasinate him like what they did to Ghadaffi and Saddam… Too bad President Al-Saad escaped with the help of those damn Russians!.. The Americans should killed Kim Jong Il and Putin for not siding with them! I can’t wait for ISIS to occupy the Philippines… The CIA should have bombed not only the Davao airport and night Market, they should have included Malacañang as well! I can’t wait for him to be replaced by Leni Robredo, De Lima or anyone from the Liberal Party!

      • I’m all for World Peace bong700, but in order to have World Peace, we should have the Rule of Law first.

      • @Iver & Bong700

        I agree with the rule of law! That’s a very good reason to build US Millitary bases here in the Philippines. So that when WORLD WAR 3 comes… the US could bomb the shit out of China, Russia, Iran and North Korea… The Philippines would be the battleground hence there is no need to kill those addicts.. A lot of bloodshed will happen anyway! Love it! 😀

      • Naku C2F ha. Aminin, ayaw mo sa US na nasa Pinas at naghariharian sa Pinas at ayaw mong paalipin sa anumang bansa.
        Kaya tama lang c DU30☺hihihi

      • @Bong007

        Excuse me?! I love the US so let’s continue worshiping them like lapdogs while they provide weapons for our rebels and continue sucking out our natural resources in exchange for their “aid”.

  8. More people will be inclined to watch the pageant if it’s held in the Philippines with its currently highly controversial president.
    It’ll mean tremendous publicity and business. Financially advantageous for the pageant which has been struggling in recent years.
    As a business company, MU will be irrational to back out knowing the profit it’ll earn.
    But if ethics come to play, it’ll be a different story.

  9. Alam naman natin na marami sa media ang guluhin at ibagsak ang digong gov’t dahil nasasagasaan ni digong ang negosyo nila kagaya sa drugs, mawawala ang makukurakot nila sa gov’t, maipapakulong sila ni digong, hihina ang negosyo nila, gusto ng ibang bansa na mananatili tayong alipin at sunodsunoran sa kanila,etc. Kaya lahat sila ay gumagawa ng paraan para guluhin at ibagsak ang Du30 administration. Maraming Di nakakaintindi sa strategy ni Du30 at Di cya makakapayag na ang 20% lng ng Phils. Population ang makikinabang sa kayamanan na mayroon ang Pinas at priority nya ang masang pilipino ang makinabang din kung anong dapat na ibigay sa bawat mamamayan.
    Tama na ang pagiging alipin ng Pilipino. Lagi nating pinag-aaralan ang buhay ng mga bayani natin pero ayaw nating tumayo sa sariling paa. Huwag paloloko sa mga manloloko na napapanood at nababasa natin sa tv/newspaper dahil marami ang best actor/actress at presstitutes na guluhin ang Du30 administration. Hihihi

    • D30’s bad mouthing cant help our economy grows. Lagi nalang strategy? Lol. Kaya mag isa? Eh pero baket nakapit sa china at russia si digong? Anung naitulong ng china at russia past years? Marahil sa pamumuno ni d30 magkakaroon ng pakinabang yang mga yan. pero lalabas na uto uto ang pinas. Gagamitin lang din tayo.
      And did u notice about partido ni d30? Research mo ung partido ni d30 part din ng aquino yan. Kay cory. Lahat ng kumandidato sa pagka pres ds year. Iisang partido lang pinagmulan. Kay MDS lang naiiba. Kaya its hard to trust our politician now a days.

      • I love miriam. She’s my president b4 not the fungus faced expresident hi hi hi.
        Sayang nga lng at wala na cya sa senate dahil waley c D5 at 3llanes kung nsa senate c MDS. Love her💋❤RIP madam.

      • I won’t be surprised kung marami ang magiging unemployed in the next few years dahil sa bibig niya. Certified Venezuela of the East na tayo in terms of pageantry and economy. Hahahaha.

        Instead na magpapress con palagi si Digong eh di gawin na lang niya trabaho niya ng tahimik, or better yet yung spokesperson na lang niya ang pagsalitain niya sa media. Less talk, less mistake.

      • In few years ay mas madaming makakaaway si digong na tiwaling mamamayan dahil Di nya uurungan ang mga masasamang taong nagkukunwaring angels of the world, the universe rather. Hihihi

    • Yeah very very true.. that is why the image of the Philippines now has changed from a nation that is gearing towards modernity and Asian economic powerhouse to a nation regressing into the dark ages and savagery. We have laws! Your beloved president doesnt want a friendly country like the US and the EUs to interfere but he is kissing the asses of Russia and China; two countries that eveyone knows have questionable diplomacies…. So who are next after they run out of the alleged addicts and pushers? Gays like us, political rivals (just like in Davao), critics, freedom fighters? Tell me!

      • Agree! Well said!!! The president is the Donald Trump of The Philippines, without the pseudo money. Demeans women, has no clue about international relations, creates drama with countries that have been beneficial to The Philippines, makes friends and praises Russia (and Hitler), and on and on and on. All he needs to do now is dye his hair orange and he’d be truly the Donald Trump of Asia.

        My beloved country… where are you going? The love is there but is being used and abused and being taken to a dark place. My beloved country…sigh…

      • YES!The US are friends with the Native Americans, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Vietnam Palestine, Cuba, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, at madami pang ibang bansa. The UNITED STATES needs to protect us from alleged Nuclear capabilities of other countries. Let’s support their WAR AGAINST ISLAM! The United States of America is God’s gift to Mankind. I’m so happy they created ISIS!

      • DU30 plays well with the US and EU. Hindi nman tayo hihiwalay sa US at EU. Nasa gitna lng tayo. Di nyo pa kilala c Digong. Huwag basta basta maniwala sa nagbabalatkayong anghel na demonyo.
        Let’s sing Bayan Ko first. Hi hi hi

      • Pathetic. All lies!

        Inquirer has an updated news early evening that there is NO cancellation.

        People should stop spreading lies.

      • @Johnny you sound like those brain-washed street mongerers. Created ISIS? What? That argument doesnt even deserve to be in the brain of a mammal

      • @Johnny

        I love the video! All arabs must die! I hope the Americans would support a local rebel group like what they did with ISIS as to assasinate our president and bring down the administration! 😀 #Dutertemustdie #longlivetheCIA #USAisGod

      • @bong :
        The DOT already confirmed years ago that MU2016 will be held in the Phils. Kaya Di ako naniniwala sa tsismis. Halos araw araw nag uusap ang MUO at DOT at matagal ko ng alam na tsismis lng yan ng gusto magkagulo ang Pinas.
        I’m not stupid bong😊hihihi

    • hanggang dito pa rin ba naman sa norman’s may nagkalat pa ring mga dutertard?! please lang duon na lang kayo sa mga blog ni mocha utong at evan de muta! 😀

    • hanggang dito pa rin ba naman sa norman’s e nagkalat ang mga dutertard?! please lang mag-stay ka na lang sa blog nina mocha utong at evan de muta… at least dun si digong ang best president in the solar system! 😀

      • Sorry..Di ako nagbabasa dyan ..mas mataas nmang level ako sa blog or page na nabanggit mo although I have high respect to them. Hi hi hi

  10. Not surprised about Inquirer spreading that news… Ayaw na ayaw ng pamilya ni Tesa Prieto -Valdes kay Du30. Mga Corporasyon nila unang affected pag napatalsik si Leni and si BBM mapaupo with the help of Du30.

  11. Super Off Topic.

    Question: Are Yvette Santiago and Rein Villareal dating? Saw them last week in Makati. Sweet sweetan or baka gentleman lang si Rein.. though I can sense na may something.

  12. This is what’s been bugging me since I read this same article yesterday.
    Truth be told, if it’s going to be a no go, then my initial hunch was right.
    It’s all about politics. Until an official statement is a released by both parties, it’s still a go for now.
    Ugh – this is just too painful and stressful to think about 😦

  13. The main issue is an administration that is a press relations nightmare.

    I would think twice holding a pageant still finding firm footing with new management in a country where authorities are waging war against a section of society who actually need help instead of persecution; where this war is bizarrely and insultingly compared to what the Jews suffered under the Nazis; and where a ‘president’ is ignorantly and wilfully throwing away decades of goodwill thinking another culture would reciprocate better (no they won’t).

    If it’s any consolation (actually, its not!), Venezuela has it worse- Osmel Sousa forges on, churning out another perfect, cosmetically-correct queen from the glitteringly perfect beauty factory that is Miss Venezuela even as a few blocks away from the Venevision studios, Venezuelans line up for food rations at a supermarket on Avenida Libertador.

    The bigger question we should ask ourselves is, where do our true priorities lie??

  14. Tagal ng nand2 ng IMG. Kung financial problem yan bat now lang? Tagal na nila nag uusap. Araw araw. Nakakuha na ng sponsors i know and im sure kahit hinde natin nakita personally. Common sense nalang. Dbale kung nag tataas ang IMG. Pero mukhang hinde naman gahaman ang IMG. Pwede naman yan ng 2 gives isa pa malapit sa pinoy ang MUO so papayag ng 2 gives yan.
    Malinaw na malinaw dahil kay d30 yan. Pero syempre iibahin nila ang tunay na rason.

  15. Fot security reasons pwede pero 40% ang kutob ko. Sino ba ng balak ng isis ang MU dahil amerika ang owner or ang pinas? Kung img. Baket hinde pa last year nanggulo ang isis sa vegas eh nakakapasok naman ang terorista sa US. May MGI sa us pero baket walang treat. Kung pinas ang target talaga ilanh pageant na ang nagawa sa pinas now may ME pa marame countries ang kasale so walang threat.
    Financial problem sa hosting fee. Ang daming chinoy na mayaman sa bansang ito and dba walanh i shoulder ang govt naten.
    D30’s anti US, D30’s badmouthing, saying Go to Hell Obama, and d30 mention about killing of hitler of jews past years affect IMG owner he is also a jewish. This made me doubt up to 100% reason why they what to cancell MU hosting here. Mas malinaw na dahilan.

    Kat de castro who is also pro d30 will surely deny the real reason behind this cancellation. Ang idadahilan nila is hosting fee. Lagi nyang sinasabi na not true daw ang cancellation dahil araw araw naman sila nag uusap daw.

    But, i would rather wait for MUO official statement about that issue mas credible pa kaysa kay Kat De Castro. Parang mas maniniwala pa ako sa Ines Ligron kesa sa kanya.mukang mayroon pang spy si ones sa MUO kaya nakakuha ng ganyang info. Hoping na mag labas na ng statement ang IMG.
