  1. If maxine do her job perfectly, satisfactory to achieve the b2b. Hopefull wag sya ma politics. Muntik na nga macancel dahil we all know the owner is american/jews. So we cant blame them kung mag pa apekto sa mga sinabi ni d30. Kahit mga pinoy madaling mapikon.

    But base sa numbers mukhang may chance naman.
    Her bday is May 9, 1990
    Her bb# is 29
    Her age is 26

    First of all

    Her age is 26
    2+6 = 8, Pageant will start at 8AM
    6-2 = 4
    She will be our 4th Miss Universe if she wins

    #29 – we are now in 65th edition of Miss Universe
    6+5 = 11
    2+9 = 11
    Pageant will end at 11AM
    Last edition was 64th and Pia’s # is 10 right?
    6+4 = 10
    Her bday is may 9
    MAY is 5 and 9 is the date of bday
    Baligtarin natin ang 9 gawin nating 6.
    Baligtarin ang position ng 5 at 6 = 65
    We are now in 65th edition of Miss Universe

    Marami pa yan. Isip isip lang. Hehe. Not win or win. she should maintain our position in MU in the top 5. This is a great victory pa rin.

  2. Sana naman naisip ang mga taong walang budhi ang kahirapan ng mga kababayan natin naghihikaos. Tangin dalangin ko na lang sana yung mga taong nagpursige na idaos ang patimpalak sa ating bayan ay hindi makarma at alam ko hindi po natutulog ang Diyos. Hindi daw pera ng gobyerno ang gagamitin pero hindi kami tanga, saan kukunin ang pera kundi sa mga tao. Lalo pang maraming tao ang ma-iisip na gumawa nang masama para lang pantawid sa nagugutom na sikmura ng kanyang pamilya. Kung ang ibang bansa na may kakayahan na gawin ang patimpalak hindi pa nagpursige na akuhin ang patimpalak sa bansa nila.

    • Well, it’s the private sector who is willing to shell out the cost, so it’s their prerogative on where they want it to spend. im sure nagcharity work din naman yang mga yan. let them. as long as hindi taxpayer’s money ang ginagamit.

      2nd, think of the long term or post event effect. just imagine the philippine tourism will be broadcast all around the globe, maipapakita ang ganda ng pinas, you think walang magkakainterest maski isang tao o bansa na bumisita sa atin? tourists = job = income.

  3. A few years from now when the economy is in ruins. When D30 has taken most of your civil liberties. When China has raped the natural resauotces of our beloved Philippines. We will all look back at MU 2017 as a big waste of money.

      • Tama ka 4M, it’ s even an investment instrument through private sector and at the same time a significant tourism campaign ng Pinas.

    • It’s so easy to say that, but you could have done a food research first. Mukhang mula sa puso mong puno ng bitterness yan at hindi sa utak na puno ng kaaalaman. 6.5% ang Gross Domestic Product ng Pinas for the first quarer ni duterte, even higher than the economic indicator ng neighboring countries natin including China and Manalysia.

      Maka comment kang, di muna mag isip o magsaliksik. Bobo!

      • Hey hello, if you’re talking of the 1st quarter of duterte’s presidency then most if not all of the policies in place were still from the preceding govt. Please give credit to whom it is due. Let’s wait and see the report for the next 2 quarters.

      • Oh come on !! Ang hirap kasi sa mga durtards kahit achievement ng past admin ay gawa raw ni Duterte tulad ng NAIA 1 etc etc. Mga ilusyon lang yun. Nasan ang clear economic policy nya. Never ko syang narinig na idiscuss to. Ang naririnig ko lang sa kanya puro murahan at patayan. Pwde ba please!!!!!!

      • I hope neither you or any of your family members get falsely accused of drug dealing and summarily executed. In the Philippines all it takes to take a human life is to accuse someone of drug dealing. But of course when it happens to someone you don’t know them it’s fine. Such a patriot you are BayanKo!

      • @jeremi stop calling dutertards your bitch! ure full of hates and insecurities. im sure wla ka teng lovelyf kasi ngbababad k dto 24/7. hahaha well kung ang mukha mo nga nmn eh panget tpos pnget o ugali then im not surprised na tlgng puro kabitteran lng alm mo teh…. stop bashing us!!! we are proud to be pro duterte. pro country. #tse

      • Sorry uli PageantXxper ha kasi di na naman kita mahaharap but dont worry I will allocate a time for you.

  4. Bakit pala ang mahal ng hosting fee for MU? $12.9 million? Plus expenses pa ng Pinas for the hosting? I hope those who invested in it will be able to recoup their expenses.

  5. Sealed. Miss Universe 2016 is now finally going to happen here in Manila, and I am so excited about that. I am seeing a festive and grandiose production and nearly a hundred delegates. I am crossing my fingers that Maxine will get the crown, and if that happens, I hope no issue will ensue thereafter. I don’t care if it’s a hometown decision, so long as her pasarela, evening gown, and answers during the tops 5 and 3 QnA rounds will all be on point.

    Matanong nga… Napaghandaan na ba ang kanyang national costume and evening dress? Baka naman maulit ‘yung nangyaring fiasco last year. Sana natuto na ang BPCI dun. I am expecting a more pasabog na national costume at syempre pa ang evening gown! Super toned na ba ang body ni Maxine? Sa make up style n’ya, parang ‘di ako kuntento sa dark lipstick n’ya, parang yosi girl ang dating n’ya dun. Baguhin sana.

    • If I may suggest, Maxine wears a Mangyan costume na may dala-dalang hand-made bag sa likod na nakasabit sa kanyang ulo and then that bag carries beautiful orchids na may mga nakadapong illuminated butterflies and once she states “Maxine Medina, 26, Philippines!”, biglang lilipad ang butterflies. O ‘di ba, bonggels! Nakakaumay na po kase ang terno or Filipiniana. We have a very diverse culture and yet ang ipinapakita lang natin, eh, ‘yung Hispanic influence natin. Pwede ba?!

      • or badjao girl siya na may kargang bata, dapat totoong baby na marungis mas bonnga pa kesa terno Filipiniana nga naman nakakasawa na. Tutal umaga naman yan di naman mapupuyat ang sanggol char! lol

      • Tapos ‘yung baby turned into becoming a t’yanak upon shouting Philippines! Then nagtatakbo na s’ya sa stage going to the audience. And that will be a big news that will shock the world, the universe rather. Hihihi! Kaloka ang idea natin, bes Carl.

      • Tiyanak the movie lang ang peg ha… I like hehe.. tapos ang tiyanak gumagapang sa mga paa ng judges hehe..

  6. I thought The MUO was at the mercy of the Philippine govt re- the staging of MU 2017, not the other way around
    And why the Phil contingent agreed to hold the live broadcast at 5 am , idk. The Russians did not adjust to the US prime time programming in 2013

    • actually. medyo weird ung 5am. we are the most engaged and energetic fans of MU (accdg to them) so sana maski 8am man lang muna para mas marami makapunta. lol

  7. And finally 8AM ang start not 5AM. Its a good choice. Nakaka antok pa rin kase ang 5AM kahit pa dame mo tulog. Sobrang agad din kase.

    • I suppose 5am start of festivities but 8am ang competition start just like in 1994. Although in 1994 mga 7am naman ang introductions (not 5am)

  8. May sports background din pala si Catriona. Saw her post in FB. When she was young. I think she still doing karate up to now. It may help her in terms of Miss World sports challenge. Wow!!! She is totally package talaga. Very exciting ang Miss World at Miss Universe.

  9. Totoo pala ung issue b4 na nakancel ang hosting ng MU d2 base sa news. Chavit singson told that sa mga news. Anya. For political reason. I think its true na political talaga ang dahilan. Na apektuhan talaga ang MUO sa mga pinagsasabi ni d30. Tama pala si ines. Nakancel. Pero inayos nila singson. Since fully paid sila hinde pwede ikancell. So napagusapan na, kaya natuloy na din finally. Sabi ko na eh mas kapani paniwala pa si ines kaysa kay kat de castro. Sinabi pang hinde totoo ang issue. Pwede naman sabihin na OO at inaayos nila. Its their fault din kase. Basta basta sila annouce ng annouce noon pa hinde muna hintayin ang final decision. Inunahan na ang MUO. Talaga tong DOT at si Kat de castro o. Palibahasa maka d30 gusto pagtakpan ang tunay na dahilan.
    Pero happy pa din ako na finally naayos nila ng maayos ang lahat. MU is coming back here in Manila.
    Pero its a proof na nakaka apekto talaga ang dila ni d30. Its not being a childish act for shawn. Hinde din natin masisisi si ang MU kung mag pa apekto. Hinde lang maka intindi ang mga d30 sa feelings na ganyan. Childish agad agad??? Masyado ma ano kay d30 ang mga supporters nya.
    Kung si shawn mahal ang bansa nya at nag apekto sa issue. Eh mga d30 ganun din naman. Mahal nila si d30 kaya kahit anung mangyari ipagtatanggol.

    .

      • It can actually be his remarks agains that US, the statement against women. You have to admit, he can be one of the factors why they initially cancelled the hosting of MU here.

        Geof,, I have to agree with you on Kat and DOT’s announcement of MU hosting. sana tumahimik na lang sila and i announce na lang once nakapag sign na ng kontrata. na off din ako dun sa pag aannounce nila, inuunahan ang MUO.

      • @Padedeboy. Nasa timing ng pananalita ni d30 nung nag cancell. Sure yan its one of the reason. Pero they will just ignore and deny it. Yun ngang cancell issue hinde nila inilabas. Itinago nila. So the full details of cancellation is expected to be same. Deny deny yan for sure.

    • Philippines wake up! Its the country’s highest office that sets the tone of how the world sees you- and the highest office makes sexist comments at a drop of a hat; condones vigilante murders; mulls over actually bringing back Martial Law (like why??????? ); and wants to be besties with the orange anus who’s now in the White House, Putin and the dodgy Chinese.

      Its a miracle the pageant is still pushing through, so enjoy it because its going to be the last miracle in a very, very long while..

      • No politics please in this blog. If you want to discuss and argue about politics, you can express your frustrations and anger in those websites.

        Well, the country posted a 7.1% GDP growth rate for the 3rd quarter 2016. This is the first quarter under the new administration. The highest in Asia and the Philippine economy is one of the fastest growing economies in the world…… Cheers.

      • Hi Andrew, no politics in this blog please….

        Just a hindsight, the Philippines posted a 7.1% GDP growth for the 3rd quarter 2016, the highest in Asia and of the fastest in the world…. It is the first GDP growth under President Duterte. Cheers.

      • Hi Andrew, no politics in this blog please. I respect you don’t like Trump and Duterte. However, you need to know that there are also many Filipinos who love Trump and the strongman Duterte.

        Just a hindsight, PH economy grew 7.1% in 3rd Quarter 2016, the first under Pres. Duterte. Cheers to MU 2016!

      • Just replying to the context of the thread Bong- but sorry; statistics may paint a rosy picture, but the realities are so starkly different

      • @Andrew Espino: What’s your point then? Cancel the hosting just because we have a foul mouthed President and he likes Trump? It is a fact that maybe the next MU to be held in PH might happen not in our lifetime or the probability is nil. I really don’t get your point why you inject political colors on MU.

      • Bong – maglalagay ka na nga lang ng statistics mali pa attribution! Kakaupo lang ni Duterte pwede ba, hindi siya o ang Miss U ang dahilan ng paglago ng ekonomiya! Diyosmio.

        Pero totoo napulitika ang Miss U! Aba ang mga dilawan ba naman na sila Etta at yung mga laos na artista sila Cynthia saka si Loida Lewis nagpetition against hosting dito! Mga talangka!

      • Bong. Hinde na bago ang mag isip ng ganyan. Its very clear that it is all about bad mouthing of current pres of this country. No doubt. Kung ang rason is for isis. Kahit anu pang talak ni chavit. They will still cancel it for the sake if MU candidates. They will pay them for damaged and im sure chavit will understand that kase para naman sa security. Mapag uusapan yan. Pero its seems like hinde yan ang dahilan kung bat planned na icancel. Galing na mismo sa bibig ni chavit. Politics yan sa palagay nya. Pero hinde lang sa palagay nya kundi yun talaga. Syempre the owner will tell the reasons honestly pero DOTv and chavit will deny the full details about that cancellations. Okay??,
        Pero everything was okay. Tuloy na tuloy na. Polished na ang lahat. Maghihintay nalang tayo na ma update ang lahat ng details sa MU website and maikalat na yan publicly.

        We all want MU to be here again. For the 3rd time. So alisin na natin ang issue na yan. Close na yan. After all we want is to see those ladies walking on stage with SS and EG and most important is they will do it in our homeland. PHILIPPINES!!! And most of all is maipasa ni Pia ang korona sa ating queen Maxine Medina.

      • Another fucked up fagot! Get lost! Go to fb or another social media platform to voice your political views. HUWAG DITO!

    • @geoff – you are fucked! you are politizing the MU hosting. Shut up you fagot! You are out of order!

      • @observingYou. Galing na sa bibig ni chavit yan. Politics. I aleeady explain why politics..Jusme. Even i am i want MU to be here again. But in the right time and in the right place.
        Kung kayo ngang mga duterte supporters kahit mga malalayong topic or anything naghahalunhkat pa kayo para lang pagtakpan si d30. Panakip butas. Why not include politics sa cancellation ng MU kung totoo naman. Do you think they will tell it to the public all the true details. NO!!! Syempre masisira imahe ni d30 diba? Imahe ng Philippines. So they need to shut their mouth.

        Pasalamat ka hinde ako marunong magsalita ng masama. Kahit F*** *.

    • Si duterte naman kasi napakapalengkera at papansin. Akala mo lagi sya inaaway. Kabanas na yang baklitang yan. Gusto q silang pagbuhulin ni aunt delima.

  10. Ano kaya kung during competition of SS at EG sa finals eh rarampa din si Pia na nakabikini at gown at the last part of each segment. I like it. Dapat mas bongga catwalk nya. Sana gawin nila yon para mas maganda.

      • Mas sira ka. What wrongs in that idea. Basta ba gandahan at ayusin para mas ok ang kalabasan. Well kung ayaw mo. Shut up!!!

    • @observingYou. Galing na sa bibig ni chavit yan. Politics. I aleeady explain why politics..Jusme. Even i am i want MU to be here again. But in the right time and in the right place.

  11. This is exciting! can’t wait to see all their ads, promos and all! but tama ba rinig ko sa teaser? mali ata ang nasabi..

    “it took 22 years for the philippines to wear the crown” eh di ba 42? haha!

    • Kaya nga. Edit edit edit! Or maybe they meant ‘for the Philippines to host again.’ But still, edit edit edit! Hinde man lang napansin yun ng mga gumawa ng video or editors? Strong attention to details please.

      • I know. pinakinggan ko ng ilang beses, because I thought medyo slang lang or baka pwedeng sounds like lang. hahaha baka sa sobrang confusion, pinagsama ang 22 years before hosting at 42 years before winning. hahaha anyway, I’m so excited on what’s ahead for the 65th MU!

        lalo na sa production. I always believe that we, filipinos have a lot to offer we just need this big break para maipakita natin. sana lang modern ang atake, wag traditional. But, let’s see.

      • Final telecast production is going to be handled by Fox. Script, stage, production design, creative direction are all American. Of course they will incorporate our local culture but don’t expect that any Filipino will be behind the telecast. Perhaps some stage hands or crew will be hired from the Philippines but that’s all the extent it can go. This was true in 1974 and 1994 and don’t expect MU to change it in 2016.

  12. Yehey! This is it na talaga mga Bes! Mabuhay Pilipinas!=)

    Gusto ko talaga makapanood ng live ng Miss universe ever since I started watching it on tv when i was still young. ngayon ito na bumalik na dito sa atin. sana talaga. This is a dream come true to us mga bes after nung nanalo din si Pia last year. We are blessed!

  13. May participation rin kaya si Rodgil or ang KF dito? Kasi diba tumulong si Rodgil during the Swimsuit presentation and Prepageant awarding sa Miss Earth.

    Sana may kunting participation ang Kf para naman di nila mafeel na leftout sila. At sana papayag si Jonas kasi hes the executive director of events…

    P.S. Can we tag Ines ligron this post..

    • Just because Jonas is one of the organizers or the director of events, doesn’t mean KF should also be involved. This isn’t about camps anymore. Jonas is there because of his personal efforts. as Jonas Gaffud, not as Aces and Queens.

      🙂

  14. I googled the list of all thr past MU winners and noticed one interesting fact.
    There has never been a b2b winner from Asia!

    There has been b2b of almost everything else… b2b European, b2b Latinas, b2b Anglo speakers, b2b black winners…👭👥👱👱👵👵👩👩

    Hmmmmmm?

    It’time… lol

    • I like it. Na touch ako. Haysss. Sana talaga maganda ang pasabog nila jonas para kay maxine. Kung ano ung nararapat para magpanalo kay maxine maipakita nya during coronation. I dont want her to do her best. Kase its talking about na ung kaya lang nya. Ung best nya. So i will say. Gawin nya kung ano yung best/nararapat para manalo sya sa MU2016. So Good Luck to Maxine and her team.
      Sana lang walang mga pinoy na magboo sa kahit kaninong kandidata. Lalabas na ang yabang naten. We were the winner last year and we are the host tapos mag bo boo tayo sa iba. Wag naman sana. Pero i feel a little na may mag bo booo talaga. Sobra sila. Sana hinde maka apekto yan.

    • OMG @Saluda..you sort of jinxed it now lol…an asian winner doesn’t necessarily mean Ms Philippines..it could be..oh dear..Ms Indonesia????

    • I thought the only b2b in MU is Venezuela in 2008 and 2009? Who’s the european b2b? Fine with your anglo-speakers and black.. isama mo na b2b long hairs, b2b black hairs, b2b blonde hairs, b2b buckteeth… hay baka bago mag Jan 30, 2017 mababaliw ka na bakla.

      • Eu b2b
        1952 – Finland
        1953 – France

        Anglo speakers b2b
        2004 – Australia
        2005 – Canada

        Black b2b
        1998 – Trinidad Tobago
        1999 – Botswana

        Latina b2b
        1957- Peru
        1958 – Colombia

        Latina b2b2b
        1985 – P.Rico
        1986 – Venezuela
        1987 – Chile

        2008 – Venezuela
        2009 – Venezuela
        2010 – Mexico

        Asia has yet to accomplish a b2b feat of any combination.
        🤔🙁

  15. OOT : Good morning/evening/afternoon.

    Does anybody have information on Ms. Verzosa’s parade at Smart-Araneta tomorrow? What time?

    Could you share? Thank you po.

  16. Mabuhay ! Cheers to the 3rd staging of MU in Manila, Philippines ! Kudos to those for making this possible ! And may this 65th edition be the best ever !
    Sir Norman – hindi ka na talaga ma-reach 🙂 You have gone a long, long way since you started blogging. Well-deserved indeed 🙂

  17. That video makes me wonder again why Pia won…I mean ehemmm she is not pretty at all.
    Sorry guys! Bye na bago dumating na mga baklang pangit

    • This post makes me wonder what bitterness thrives in the heart of a person to so passionately reject logic and always believe in conspiracy theories. Then again, he declares everybody else “pangit” when he won’t even subject his own photo to scrutiny.

      In the wise words of Jinkx Monsoon, “Delusion. Convince yourself.”

      • @ pautwas – some people just want uninvited and divided attention. period. and as long as people react to “him” he succeeds and gets just that “attention” he truly longs and wishes for 🙂

      • That is a clear example of a person with ADHD. hehehehe.

        Trying to be controversial, inflaming others, posting unnecessary remarks and actually, trolling.

        I was his victim but I didn’t respond to him again, not going to stoop to the lowly .

        Cheers.

      • hahhahahahahahahaha. I love your post. You nailed it.

        “, he declares everybody else “pangit” when he won’t even subject his own photo to scrutiny.”

        That troll even accused me something that I never did. I challenged that troll to prove with a reward if it was proven to be true but it went pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffttttttttttttttttttttttt”. Since then, I never replied to that troll.

    • I saw Pia in person/upclose. Promise sobrang ganda nya.

      SS round pinasabog nya (baka 1st nga cya doon). EG medyo so-so (love the red worn during prelims) but perhaps the fan vote propelled her to Top 5…
      AND she just nailed the interviews in Top 5 and Top 3… no one came closer. So ayun bakla KORONA!

    • Jeremi,

      ikaw talaga…I hope this is just a makeup issue with you. Hindi ko bet masyado yung makeup nya nung finals medyo waxy for me kaya iintindihin kita. Nung homecoming nya when she wore the blue gown mas gusto ko yung makeup nya dun mas may color na hindi bronzy. Pero in person, pramis she looks like a doll.

      When she won:

      • Laila salamat sa mga photos ha pero di talaga ako convinced hahahah hayaan mo na ako…pero teka nag iisip pa rin ako na Pia’s winning and all those announcement mistake and brouhaha were planned and orchestrated. Remember, yung commenters nung nglalakad si Pia sa stage sinabing “She really embodies what a Miss Universe is, she is confidently beautiful” then came the final answer of Pia stating the same tagline then the rest is history culminating to an MU there in the Philippines. Ewan ko hahahah

      • jeremi, i get your reservations. i’ve heard far worse from our latin counterparts pero i remember being up almost 24/7 during that time – if pwede ko i compare si pia noon on and off cam – official and unofficial events i’d say para syang method actor. people argue about her beauty and proportions pero the quiet confidence daw was like a halo. one vegas insider i remember – he told me that once pia stepped in the room nag che-change ang energy. this guy is cuban/american pa. i remember telling him – must be the pinoy crowd – and he was like: No there weren’t any during the fittings. in short – AURA AURA nga siguro.

  18. Congrats Norman. I hope they don’t Jonas being part of the group as an issue come pageant time. Shawn looks so tall! Hot hot.

  19. Tuloy na talaga at waley ng magaygaywa ang mga baklang may Hepatitis na pigilin ang MU2016 sa Pinas hi hi hi.
    Sino kaya ang ang ka”Frailty of a woman” ni Shawn sa Pinas at wilingwili yata cya😄

  20. May role din kaya si Rodgil Flores or ang KF camp sa pageant? Kasi diba tumulong siya sa Miss Earth during the Swimsuit Presentation and the Prepageant Awarding.

    Sana payagan ni Jonas, total si Jonas naman ang Director of Activies.
