  1. @bong
    Gusto ko naman na matuloy sa Pinas bong. Opinion ko lang yan kung di matuloy sa Pinas.
    Meron pala akong comment sa First comment ni Laila sa baba which is awaiting for moderation hihihi. Ito po yun :
    Really Lady Laila… But Queen P. mentioned in her interview in Panama that she can guarantee that no problem will happen during the MU2016 events in the Philippines…
    Dahil na naman ba ito sa mga Hepatitis people?
    Hindi naman tayo humingi ng Million of Dollars from USAID na binigay sa Gerry Roxas Foundation($24M = 1 billion pesos)

    O kaya humingi from $865 Million Dollar = 37 Billion Pesos Funds from Tyhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.

    Di naman natin pinakialaman paano nila ginastos yun at di tayo makikihati doon para maidaos lang ang MU2016 sa Pinas.
    NapaComment tuloy ako kahit gusto ko munang magrest at di pa nakamove-on sa ginawa kay Jennifer huhuhuhu…hihihihihi🙂

  2. what’s this brouhaha over the uncertainty of PH hosting MU2016? and this post fanning more flames to it..d na kau nasanay sa PR works ng bagong mgt ng MUO..and expect more surprises, or should i say scripted plots and turns..kung totoong me petition against its holding, dapat ilabas nila para maka pirma ako..at kung totoong me petition kontra petition, ilabas din nila para pipirma din ako..🙋😡

    • 1000% na naniniwala akong dito talaga idadaos ang MU2016 marvin.
      NapakaUnprofessional naman ng MU na biglang aatras na walang magandang dahilan or dahil sa politika lamang dahil kilala naman nila c DU30 noon pa.
      Tama lang naman ang ginawa ng DOT na ideny ang rumors na di matuloy ang MU2016 sa Pinas dahil yun naman ang totoo at wala namang sinasabi ang MUO na di matuloy sa Pinas. Yung sinasabing bakit nauuna c Kat or DOT or Teo na sabihing mali ang rumors at dapat ang MUO lang ang dapat magsabi sa press kung ano ang totoo ay kabobohan. Alipin ba ng MUO sila Kat, Teo or DOT. May karapatan din and DOT na sabihin na di na nila itutuloy ang MU2016 sa Pinas kung kailangan talagang di na ituloy.

  3. Guys wala akong mapag kabitan ng post kay kylie. Sayang naman kung hindi nyo makikita. Please bear with me.

    • Ganda talaga nya. She is the one. But its up to MIO. Sana sya talaga manalo. She will raise the bar high like what pia did. Parang na aamoy ko din talaga na sya mananalo. Kitang kita naman na panalo talaga ang dating nya. Parang nakoronahan na nga ang peg nya. Sya ang Pia Wurtzbach this year. Sila yung special sa batch nila. Name pa lang nila bigtime na.
      Anu kayang hitsura ng gown nya? Maluwag ba or fit? Hairtstyle and make up nya? Urg!!!! Sa MI ako mas kinakabahan.
      Best of luck to kylie.

    • @ Kim : Hello Kim and Good Evening.

      Nag-send-off na earlier today ang PEPPS for Misters Cochico and Jarina for ManHunt International at Mister Asian, respectively. We join our countrymen in wishing them all the best in their campaigns.

      Unfortunately, hindi na tayo mapauunlakan ni Mr. Tinio na ma-feature ang mga Misters dahil ang PEPPS at ang Gentlemen Charities, Incorporated (GCI, kung saan kasapi si Mr. Tinio) ay competitiors. Dahil dito, magiging conflict of interest ang pag-feature dito kina Don, Vincent, Miguel, Chriz, CJ, Issa, at AR. Pasensiya na po at salamat sa inyong pag-uunawa.

      Ngunit hindi naman tahasang ipinagbabawal ng blogger ang pagbanggit sa mga naturang Misters, dahil hindi naman talaga maipagkakaila ang kanilang mga efforts tungo sa paghatid ng karangalan sa Filipinas. Tulad na lang sa pagbanggit niya kay Karan Singhdole bilang 2016 Man of the Year sa isa sa previous Posts dito – hindi ko lang matandaan kung alin sa dalawa : Miss Asia or Miss United Continents. Do feel free to check the Blog Library/Archives.

      • @Andrew

        Bangitin nyo na lahat wag lang si Don!… Hindi ko parin nakakalimutan ang chauvinistic religion-related fundamentalist FB status nya… Makacomment sya sa FB akala mo kung sinong macho pero sali-sali naman sya male pageant! Try nya kaya isagot yun sa Q&A nya with that kind of fundametalist mind-set tingnan lang natin!

      • @Aj

        Yes, I agree. If I know, hindi nya ma-accept sarili nya… Mas matining pa boses nya kesa sakin… pero Yes I know.. move on na… Napakalaking goodluck Don!!! Enjoy Manhunt!

      • Miss Asia po ba si Don Cochico? Matining ang voice niya at parang machu picchu ang kilos niyo. Tho i like him.

  4. OK lang na di matuloy sa Pinas ang MU dahil marami namang Chinese from mainland china na Tourist darating before the end of the year.Hi hi hi hi.
    Di tayo lugi at gamitin na lng ng DOT ang funds na gagamitin sa MU to attract other countries to come in the Philippines. Palakasin ang Medical Tourism at talo tayo sa Thailand.

    • Hi tukayo, I’ll be sad.

      We plan to watch the MU live at MOA with a group of friends. In fact, we’re waiting for the tickets to go on sale! I also have few friends from abroad who have booked their tickets in January, in time for MU….

    • bong, what do you mean gamitin ng DOT ang funds to attract tourist? DOT (or the govt) will not spend any centavo sa pag host ng MU. it’s the private sectors who are willing to shell out the money just to HOST the pageant. 🙂

  5. 8 out of 10???? The way its written, the strange awkward cadences and turns of phrase, methinks its Ines Ligron donning an Hermes turban and demolishing her 3rd bottle (that’s why she can see suddenly see the future dancing in front of her eyes) of Pinot Noir…..in hindsight, it doesnt really take much supernatural prognostication to get a credible list because MU has been largely predictable and even formulaic which is actually good- better that than the behind the scenes machinations of third-tier beauty pageants such as Supranational, MGI and Intercontinental..

    An exception to that rule is MW- everyone knows its Julia’s World…

  6. Eto yung psychic predictions:

    “Today, I have seen how things will unfold at the 2016 edition of the Miss Universe Pageant. Here is my 2016 Miss Universe psychic prediction:

    1. I see a beautiful lady who will speak from heart and touch the spirits of all present, and there will be no words but silence for a few seconds, then rush of emotions so the world will be hers now. With “C” in her name, it will not take long to see her talents too! She will come close to winning and has a very bright scope. She will be from a country between North Pacific ocean and South Atlantic ocean.

    2.The next top contender will be with that with softness and calm with triple “I” in her name, and a royal tradition in her blood, She is from from a country next to North Atlantic ocean.

    3. The next top best participant will be from a big country where whole world exists together. She will have D starting in her name.

    4. There will be a lady of magical charm and also belong to a big corporate or an organised sector. I see her name will start with an “M”, with a place name starting with “V” who will find it hard first but will have a fair chance to win later.

    5. At this position I see a lady with some sadness as her heart breaks with the name having “Y”, very proud and win many titles.

    There are hidden things that will come to notice”
    ______

    Bat ganun?… Parang wala si Maxene sa prediction?!

    1. I think that’s either Charlene Leslie of Aruba or Connie Jimenez of Ecuador who plays the Piano

    2. No idea who’s #2… because my initial guess is Miss Puerto Rico 2016, Kristhielee Caride, but she got dethroned early this year. It can’t be USA or Canada so most probably someone from Europe like Spain who havn’t crowned anyone yet.

    3. She’s obviously Deshauna Barber of the USA.

    4. Another given.. Mariam Habach of Venezuela

    5. I thought at 1st that this is Philippines but she doesn’t have a “y” in her name- Maria Mika Maxene Medina… And ” many titles” meaning she’s from a pageant powerhouse?… so my guess is Roshmitha Harimurthy of India.

    ASAN SI MAX?!!!! I hate this prediction!

    http://fearlessprediction.blogspot.com/2016/09/miss-universe-2016-psychic-prediction.html?m=1

    • diba bongga c2f? ganun din yung worry ko, wala si 4M pero ang lakas ng loob ko para sa MW, magwiwinsung dw si candidate na may C at P sa Name. inisip ko “Catriona from Philippines!!!!” charot!!!

      • @San Longhino

        In fairness sa site na ito.. 8 out 10 times ako nag check nagkatotoo naman…

    • Ako sa tingen ko. We will not win MU this year. No b2b sa palagay ko. Top 5 pwede pa and ok lang. Pero i still high hopes that maxine will win or top 3 man lang. Pia raise the bar so high. Pero hinde din naten pwede maliitin si maxine. I know she knew what her weaknesses and she is smart to learn how to make those things strong and perfect. Body transformation ok na. Com skills nalang. Yung acts nya while speaking sana ma train into being a good speaker aura. I dont want too see her with cat face while talking and smiling. Sana magawan ng way na maalis yon.
      But anyway! Forget muna about her. Iwas muna sa sobrang pressure. Nasa MGI at MI pa lang tayo so don muna tayo mag focus.

      • I wish asa Top 5 si Max pero parang hindi nga even without this prediction… I hope I’m wrong.

    • 8 out of 10???? The way its written, the strange awkward cadences and turns of phrase, methinks its Ines Ligron donning an Hermes turban and demolishing her 3rd bottle (that’s why she can see suddenly see the future dancing in front of her eyes) of Pinot Noir…..in hindsight, it doesnt really take much supernatural prognostication to get a credible list because MU has been largely predictable and even formulaic which is actually good- better that than the behind the scenes machinations of third-tier beauty pageants such as Supranational, MGI and Intercontinental..

    • I stopped believing in his predictions. He predicted that Pia would get as far as Top 15. We already know what happened to Pia. Rest is history.

    • This is another bullshit! Your prediction c2f is as good (if not better) than this. I can’t believe you spent effort on this.

  7. I can’t waiiit! I saw a post sa IG (the guy actually owns an ad agency) and saw some MU 2016 logo studies. and I saw one design na naka maria clara peg ang logo ng MU. exciting!

    BTW, baka naman pwedeng wag na lang maingay ang DOT.. I mean I appreciate their efforts or statements that the MU2016 will push through but pwede bang shhhh na lang muna at hayaan ang MUO mag announce? ganon din kasi e, sasabihin nila tuloy pero wala pang sinasabi ang MUO.

    laging nauuna kasi. but anyway, sana may announcement na soon!

    • Kaya nga. Masyado makati ang dila ng kat na yan naiinis ako dyan sa DOT na yan. Pareho sila ng presidente nyang si d30. Kahit ano pang rason dapat hinde muna sila nagsalita noon kahit pa may permiso ng MUO. Hinde talaga maganda na mauna pang mag announce ang host country sa MUO.

  8. Magantay lang kayo mga beki, kaya nga nagsamama sama sa pica sila Deshauna, Miss teen USA and Pia, kasi anytime from now, may lalabas ng churva about the venue, ang tagal nyo nang nagtiis sa pagaantay, kaya naman konting wait na lang at magkakaalaman na, well alam naman na before pa na sa pinas talaga, antay antay na lang pa more at maririnig na natin ang Hello Philippines Mabuhay!!!

  9. kaya siguro walang announcement ang tungkol sa miss universe kung matutuloy sa manila dahil sa ngayon nasa china ang tourism secretary….

  10. IMG is an american company, with the way Duterte is treating the US, dont you think the MUO/ US government have thought of this? Why would the US help Philippines attract more tourist(DOT)if Duterte doesnt even want the presence of the Americans. Hope this doesnt push thru, its dangerous for the candidates and Maxine will not win… To shame the americans… Just saying…you know

  11. MUO must have been watching how the ME pageant was unfolding ATM. They might have seen something amiss…

  12. This late in the game, I’m guessing it’ll be Vegas again. More choices on venue (T-Mobile arena, Planet Hollywood, Mandalay Bay, MGM) and logistics are easy pull off at the last minute. The crowds are also gracious.. the candidates feel adored and pampered to the max.

    • True! sana mas marami pa siyang travel. So far Lai, ilan na travel niya and events compared to the previous titleholders?

      I assume si Paulina ang pinaka onti?

      • Puro banana republic pinupuntahan ni Pia. Medyo uhaw lang sa European trips and official asian trips. May ilang bwan pa naman sya pero medyo matumal. Na busy kase si Pia kaka punta dito for endorsements and kaka negotiate ng MU dito eh.

  13. It’s too agonizing for me to think about it. What are the chances that it will push thru in PH after all ? Your guess is as good as mine. Let’s wait and see 🙂

  14. Kaya pala I waited last Monday. Can’t blame the peeps from the other countries speculating that Pia went to Panama to negotiate MU to be moved there.

    • Really Lady Laila… But Queen P. mentioned in her interview in Panama that she can guarantee that no problem will happen during the MU2016 events in the Philippines…

    • @ Laila : Hello and good day. Now that you mentioned it, it is quite possible that an “unknown group” made a “better offer” at the last minute to WME/IMG. And knowing that the Chinese have a presence even in Latin America’s criminal underground, I would not be surprised if this was a calculated move to usurp Filipinas yet again of global glory, pageantry-related or otherwise.

      LOVE conspiracy theories, hidden agendas, ulterior motives, and under-the-table wranglings. LOL.

      • Pero Andrew walang nagpaparamdam na ibang countries willing to host this late in the game. The MU reps are always here. Jonas has been going around places. So they can stall and stall and stall pero all fingers are pointing to the Philippines talaga. Baka ploy lang to para mag salivate talaga tayo. Paula daw is coming here soon so ano yun? Babaksayon lang dito? Sabagay if di sya matulog dito hindi naman kawalan. If matuloy wala naman problema kase personally I’m so proud of our fun places. Wag nyo nang haluan ng Duterte talk ang pageants making it appear as if nasa middle ages tayo. Araw araw naka tutok ako sa ME and it makes me smile they seem to be seeing the best of what the Philippines can offer. Living here and going around the country isn’t so bad talaga. Medyo annoying na yung speculations na sobrang unsafe dito at crappy dito. HINDI KAYA! These are the same people who go to bonifavio global city having expensive coffee, going to gyms and clutching apple products.
