  2. I think Nicole is doing a great job. In a sea of bimbos, Nicole comes across as smart no-nonsense, responsible , and reliable. She is in good shape and if she finds the right facial look, she is likely to land in the top 5 .
    But then again, beauty contests can be very unpredictable. So good luck

    • @ M : Happy Sunday, M.

      Posted on Sash Factor’s FB page. A Miss Earth candidate was “pinakain ng rambutan” and she apparently consumed the seed as well. It is NOT explicitly stated there exactly how Ms. Earth – Philippines Imelda Schweighart connects to the incident, but comments say that “mag-so-sorry daw siya”, that “I’m still young”, “I just wanna have fun”, and “unawain na lang (daw) siya”. These are Not the EXACT words from Sash Factor, just MY approximation / interpretation.

      The post goes on to say that rambutan seeds contain harmful substances and so anyone who maliciously and knowingly tells someone to consume rambutan seeds with the intent of causing harm can be charged with felony under the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines.

      A commentator says to go to PTOP (I do not know what this is) for the “chika”. And “may sayad talaga”.

      • Thank you so much Andrew. Very much appreciated!

        She’s a lost case! Does she have any mentors? Please educate her. Pronto!

      • @M Mentors ba kamo? We can ask Baby Nica alam mo na same camp as to kung sino man nag train/guide kay Ima.

        I also read on facebook na di daw totoo ang rambutan issue. But in light of all of these dahan dahan naman sana kakapuna kay Ima. May sayad man o wala I’m sure nasasaktan din xa sa mga pambabash ng mga kapwa Pilipino nya. Masakit yun.

      • OMG… kahit hindi alam na toxic e bakit ipapakain?.. I hope this is not true… I still wana give her the benefit of the doubt… Hindi na pwede gamitin kasing excuse ang pagiging bata pag pinagtatangkaan mo ng masama ang isang tao kahit maliit na bagay lang… bad publicity parin ito. 😦

    • Geez it’s all over! Try ko post later convo namin. Manipis na pasensya ni Angelia sa kanyA. She confided to someone. Oh dear…

  3. @ bong700 : My apologies for failing to tag you. Thanks yet again for your generosity to us all here!

    I wonder now if the Filipino community in USA is letting their money do the talking by way of the pay-for-vote scheme of Mr. Nawat. I just hope they are. If there is any group of people who can influence Ms. Cordovez’s chances of making the First Cut, it is them. They are there on the ground, where the action is.

    It is CRUCIAL for Filipinos all over the world to unite and prove to ALL pageant organizers everywhere that we are willing to PAY if necessary, that such is our passion for pageantry and love for our reps. We should be unlike other countries who merely cheer without buying the merchandise.

    • OMG… kung may power lang ako, i will let all the Fil-Am and FilChi-Am organization including media like Kabayan Today to spread the voting system of MGI and vote for Nicole πŸ™‚ hihihi

  4. Tama lang naman yung SS presentation ni Nicole. Hindi kulang at hindi sobra. Mas OK nga sya ngayon compared noong BbPilipinas contestant pa sya at ang ganda ng katawan nya now. Sa look ay malaki ang improvement nya.
    Kaloka si Iraq but i love her. Cguro sa ibang bansa sya nakatira kc very conservative ang Iraq sa swimsuit.
    http://webgram.co/p/BLlWwBKj9_6
    Gusto ko lang itapon yung shoulder bag nya. hihihi. Sana yung walang sabitan sa shoulder ang bag nya ang pair sa gown nya. oh ayan ha, huwag kayong ano. Hindi porke solid supporter nya ako ay di na ako pupuna sa kanya. Minimal lng naman to, parang ang dami nyang dala lagi kapag lumalabas πŸ™‚

    Ok lang din yung speech nya at naipakita nya na may command sya to speak to the public. Sure ako na pasok sya sa Semi-final at doon na magkaalaman at di naman palalamon c Nicole.
    I wish her Good Luck and i’m sure kayangkaya nya yan.

    • I wonder if it was deliberate, but the choice of emerald-green and acid butter-yellow for gowns by Filipinas and South Sudan, respectively, was, imho, BRILLIANT! Like Queen P’s royal-blue confection at MU 2015, these make the two STAND OUT from the boring and predictable sea of neutrals, blacks, whites, grays, etc.

      Macau resembles Jeslyn Santos, the reigning Miss United Continents.

    • Yup. Ung pinakita nya is tamang pasarela. Simple pero masasabi mo talagang tamang pasarela o tunay na pasarela. Kaysa naman over acting. Dame na sobrahan sa landi. I have a feeling nasemifinalist sya kahit wala pang prelim. Pero still praying for that. Pero now sa nakikita ko mukhang hinde talaga sya mananalo. Alam ko stratgey nya pero iba talaga ung feel ko. Mas nakikita ko kay india ang korona. I admit indonesia is georgous. Pero india is far more beautifull and more deserving. So if they are top 2. I want india to win. If nawat choose indonesia then there is something wrong. I really dont trust him. One thing is kapag kakaunti ang vote ni nicole. Syempre iisipin ni nawatt. Ayaw natin sya bigyan ng dollar o tulungan. So gagawin nya ligwak talaga si nicole kahit na maganda ang performance nya. MGI is stepping UP daw pero for me big no! Sa stage oo mala MU sila. Pero hinde nya mapapantayan ang MU o MW. Ginaya ang voting sa MW na may bayad pero ang MW ginagamit naman nila ang pera sa mga advocacy. Very clear. Pero ang MGI anung ginagawa? Ang MU may botohan man pero walang bayad. Pero may mga advocacy at hinde basta trip lang. So sa nakikita ko sa ME sila dapat icompare. Which ME pa rin talaga ang lamang. Pero Parang wala din dapat icompare. Talo man ang ME sa stage. Pero lamang sila sa advocacy.

      But anyway. We will see. Preliminary competition is very near. Good Luck Nicole.

  5. Good luck, Nicole ! Win or lose, you’re still a winner for me πŸ™‚
    No worries at all β™₯β™₯β™₯

  6. M.Universe crowns:
    Philippines – 3
    Indonesia – 0

    M.World crowns;
    Philippines – 1*
    Indonesia – 0
    (*won @ Bali, Indonesia)

    M.International crowns;
    Philippines – 5
    Indonesia – 0

    M.Earth crowns;
    Philippines – 5
    Indonesia – 0

    TOTAL Big 4 titles;
    Philippines – 12
    Indonesia – 0

    I understand Indonesian fans havd been “passionately” making comparisons between their hometown reps vs. Philippine reps! Good for themπŸ€—.

    HOWEVER, I think these stats are the only comparisons Filipino fans need to remember. Im just sayin’. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Ž

    • M.Earth crowns;
      Philippines – 3
      Indonesia – 0

      Oops..So sorry, Indonesian fans. My error. πŸ˜„

      • sus wag na patulan yang mga indonesians, wala pa silang napapatunayan. at least ang thailand may 2 miss u at nakadale rin si patapon aswang ng miss intercontinental πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  7. Bakit ganun parang walang gana rumampa ni nicole. Walang landi parang wala lang. Gung ganyan ipapakita mo sa finals night eh di wag nako umasa

  8. Indonesian beauty pageant fans bash the Philippines and mock the country in hosting MU in January 2017.

    Well, if you can understand Bahasa Indonesia, their insults are revolting. They claimed that MU candidates shall be sitting in plastic chairs, their Indo candidate should bring Off lotion , PH is not yet ready to host MU and other derogatory remarks.

    Guys, Indonesia is a poor country with no LRT/MRT in the capital. They also have a problem in squatters, poor infrastructure, traffic jam, terrorism and crime related problems. They also have 4 Million drug addicts.

    Well, not all Indonesians are like that. Many of them are also kind just like us Pinoys.

      • Si ariska ng Indonesia dapat pinadala nila sa MU. Sya lang may “bayag” mag skimpy swimsuit. Mas may laban sya kesa sa mga kasama nya. Malaysia is the sister of Kiran Jassal, MU rep. By default gusto ko sya pero kulang sya sa pageant training. Ganda ng katawan ni Thailand medyo shallow lang at gawang sciensya. Nicole magaling talaga magsalita given na yun . She might wear a Val taguba gown (super fab Val na walang malay) masaya na ako na maka semis si Nicole. Mahihirapan sya siguro manalo kase sa pagkaka alam ko sa MGI they pick favorites and gusto nila rampadora. If paniniwalaan ko isang admin friend ko – naka reserba pasarela pasabog ni Nicole s finals. She just has to get a good placement para ma ipakita yun.

      • Sa kanilang tatlo mas kinakabahan ako kay nicole. Next kylie and last jen. Mas malake ang kaba ko kay nicole. Alam ko strategy lang nila yan at ang pasabog ay sa finals.so i am hoping na maganda ang gawin nya sa prelims. Para makapasok sa semis at maipakita nya ang Mala MU na sinasabi nya. Kung hinde man manalo basta makapasok sa top 5 ok na. Ang MGI they are looking for MU material girls. Rampadora as laila said. During SS competition kanina. Dameng magalaw masyado malandi ang rampa. Na over sa landi. Somethings na hinde naman kailangan gawin. Si nicole simple lang ginawa kanina. Ok lang yon basta dapat ramdam sya. Wag nya gayahin ung sobrang landi na galaw. I will expect more during prelims basta half ng pasabog ang ipakita wag muna lahatin. Si peru palaban. She nailed SS kanina. Si indonesia magaling din. Pero sa nakikita ko si India talaga ang mananalo sa MGI.
        Kay kylie, well she’s still doing her best. She never disappointed us from her arrival up to now. Mukhang gusto din sya ng mga japanese. Because of her small and cute face and also they already know that she is a good speaker too and smart. So fingercrossed ako. I really want her to win. Sana naman wag lagi naka straight ang hair sana may style naman. Mukhang sa finals naka straight din sya. Hmmm. Parang d ko din gusto ang bun. Dapat something na hinde fierce ang dating. Dapat lalabas ang pag ka sweet, demure. Very queenly aura. Kahit may mas higit pa sa kanya. Na fe feel ko she will win.
        Kay jen, sa kanya tumaas ang feeling ko na mananalo sya. Pero fingercrossed pa din. Si india ang makakalaban nya sa asia. Malakas din sya. Pero sa pakiramdam ko its between Philippines and Puerto Rico or Venenzuela.

    • LOVE BLACK ! : Aruba, Bahamas, Cuba, and South Sudan.

      LOVE CROPPED / SHORT HAIR ! : Namibia and Poland.

      Indonesia is smoking! cocoy must be proud.

      Scotland resembles Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.

      Mr. Nawat’s bet ALSO looks tranny, but her combination of miniscule waist and humongous hips make her an ideal lingerie model.

      China is a revelation.

      France is fraiche (fresh)!

      Somebody looks like Carrie Underwood; I forgot which one. LOL.

      Thanks for sharing, Will. That was F-U-N !

    • I am a bit disappointed with majority of the candidates.. There are actually very few who are stunning. Standout for me is Peru.

      Among the Asians, Nicole is still the best for me. She has the best body too.

    • I love Miss Iraq. Lol.

      Anyway, OK naman si Nicole, very refined. Yun nga lang, sana ibinagay n’ya ang rampa n’ya sa set. Swim suit ramp by the pool side ang gimik, kaya dapat may energy at flirt ng konti. Nevertheless, very feminine s’ya at ‘di tranny looking, especially ‘yung hubog ng katawan n’ya. Ganda! Na-imagine ko ‘yung rampa ni Catriona Gray sa swimsuit round nung Miss World, ‘yun ang dapat ginaya ni Nicole. Swabe ‘yun!

      Good luck, Nicole!

  9. I love seeing our bets just enjoying their experience and having fun interacting too with the other contestants. We may have suggestions or criticisms for them but at the end of the day we just need to trust these girls with their ability to perform in the best and authentic way they can. Win or lose, we need to support them for they carry our country’s sash. Sometimes it’s not always winning the crown that truly matters but more so on how you were remembered for the happiness you caused other people by your kindness. Go Philipines.

  10. Nakakaawa si Nicole, walang masyadong post tungkol sa kanya, lalo na sa Missosology. Kundi pa pumanaw yung hari ng Thailand, di pa mababanggit ang MGI! Gaganda pa naman ng mga wardrobe niya!

  11. MGI is not for us this year. Over confident ang bet natin and medyo mataas ang tingin sa sarili. She banks on her galing daw sa Q&A, but hearing her answers here, hay……. yan ba ang magaling magsalita? I hope bininini will learn from this, wag panalunin ang matataas ang tingin sa sarili. Sana next year may chance tayo sa MGI

    • The fuck! Contest nga yan so ano gusto mo gawin nya umasal at magicip na talunan? Win or lose basta lumaban ka yun ang importante. And let me add – sure that she is much better than you in Q&A. Bitter!

      • Observing, kahit nung nasa Pinas pa mayabang na talaga dating ni Cordoves.

  12. She may not win but damn this girl is showing the best of what Philippine pageant training can offer. If she wins though, ang saya ko super.

  13. Naku naku parang agree ata ang lahat na parang tagilid ang girlalu na to. from the start naman kase d exotica iguana ang hanap ni nawat! Dapat ang peg ni girlie ang mga transgender ng Thailand na ubod ng gaganda! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚sorry po pero parang Si Ariska of INDONESIA ang malakasπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Agree ba mga sis?? umamin kayo tagilid to at INDONESIA ANG WINNER??πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ im sure ang mga feeling class na naman ang mag rereact πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • @ cocoy : Sige cocoy, papatulan kita dahil walang-waley ako’ng class. Ginaganahan ako’ng makipag-away ngayon’g araw, at bad-trip ako. Sige…

      Kung karapat-dapat manalo si Ms. Ariska, congratulations to her and to our wonderful neighbors to the South. We have no diplomatic / political / territorial quarrel with Indonesia, so don’t start one, please.

      And as I said earlier, kung hindi papalarin si Ms. Nicole, I am putting in my support for India.

      And some unsolicited advise : if you would like to not be hated, you can start by toning down on the emoji’s. They make you look like a childish amateur, galit na galit… mag emoji.

      Eat… Bulaga! (Bahasa-style) LOL. πŸ™‚

      Sige, kahit magdamagan tayo magsugatan! Kahit kailanganin pa’ng mag-intervene ni Mr. Tinio !

      Subukan mo lang…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

      GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • what for?? Hindi ako tanga katulad mo!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ im eyducated!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ so sa madaling salita walang akong panahon magaksaya my preyscious hours para sa katulad mong walang social life dahil weekend na weekend nakikipag hamon ng away sa isang pageant blog!! Laterz pasosyal na bakla!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I have a life and apparently you don’t!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ciao πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ Go INDONESIA!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Continue. The mere fact na nag-reply ka ay ibig sabihin wala ka ngang social life. You’re just bluffing. Kunwari may social life siya, para mag-appear na pa-importante. At least ako, inaamin ko’ng wala ako’ng kuwenta.

      Go ahead. Prove me wrong by no longer, as in EVER, making an appearance on this blog.

      Go pursue your weekend social life. Whatever it is. Like we care.

      Or as we do in our office, present documentary evidence of this social life, otherwise AWOL ka. Invite to wedding, christening / baptism, child’s birthday party, or similar. At oo, may pasok ako pag Sabado at bawal sa office ko ang ginagawa ko. Go spill your beans if you have the balls.

      Or maybe, the kind of weekend event that is “unspeakable”? Been there, done that.

      Feel free to confirm or refute. See? I used neither exclamation point nor emoji.

      Continue.

    • You are entitled to your opinion. Eat it! You are so trying hard to convince others here. Mwah!

  14. I think Nicole is doing an awesome job!
    She needs to wear platforms IMO…

    NICOLE CORDOVES FOR THE WIN!

  15. I think Nicole performed decently during the “Best in Swimwear” competition. Did I think it was enough for her to win that award? I don’t think so.

    What I gleaned from the interview is that Nicole has a plan to get into the org’s good graces during the pre-pageant activities, which is good.

    After all, just as in Miss Universe, the real fight for the crown begins during the Prelim Competition. If she wants to peak then, that’s just the right thing to do.

    • Yup. Ang inosente ng rampa nya. Tamang tama lang. Pero parang d ko sya masyado na feel. But well its for the award na best in SS lang naman. So ok lang. Dame na over landi sa rampa kanina. Mga something na hinde naman dapat gawin. Katulad ng ginawa ni MU vietnam at peru last year. Si MGI peru ang mas napansin ko at na feel kanina. Kanya na ang award. No doubt. But since MGI is copying MU so hanap nila ngayon is rampadora. So i am hoping for nicole for half pasabog sa prelim para maka in sa semi at full pasabog para makapasok sa final cut. Haysss. Sa kanya ako mas kinakabahan. Mukhang its a battle between India and Peru.

  16. I happened to be in Las Vegas yesterday for a convention and I saw most is the candidates and unfortunately beauty wise Medyo naiiwanan sya. So let’s. See if this pageant is for ma boka personality

  17. I have misgivings as to the way things have turned out for her, which could be gleaned both from her replies here and from the various comments about her in previous posts. But I will just zip it. The last thing she needs from us is non-constructive criticism.

    Ms. Cordovez, continue to ENJOY your time in Las Vegas. Take from it what pleasantly memorable moments you can. You are what you are. Be grateful for the opportunity. Give yourself a pat on the back whenever you can.

    And as I said in an earlier post, we will pray for you; angels will watch over you.

  18. Frontrunner… should win MGI 2016.
    The MGI organization is in a precarious position.
    Crowning someone “out of left field” can put a damper on its progress for credibility.

    Speaking of lack of credibility, Miss Intercontinental needs to crown its winner WITHOUT questionable results….
