  1. May kapatid pala si ganiel na mala beauty queen din ang peg. And kahawig nya si Pia Wurtzbach. Infairness. Kamukang kamuka nya ha. Nakita nyo na ba? Late na siguro ako haha.

  2. I remember emma tiglao when i saw miss netherlands..i see emma tiglao awra last night to her. Cook island is the top favorite. Truly sa coronation night bumubulaga ang not top contender candidates. I ddnt notice netherlands. Parang MU 2014 lang. In my prediction during top 5 Q&A. Ive got 3 out of 5 correct position. My winner was netherlands or cook island. 1st runner up çook island or netherlands. 2nd is philippines and my 4th position is korea. Thailand was 3rd on my list. But cook island placed as 3rd and thailand as 1st.
    Well happy for the result, bawas ng konti sa galit ng thailand. But indonesian. No changes. Lumala.
    I expected colombia too to be in the top 5. She is beautifull. But sadly she didnt made it.
    Medyo mahina pala si ganiel sa Q&A.

  3. Nederland’s victory is commendable, but I STILL find it odd that non-Asia Pacific Rim countries are invited to participate. It is, after-all, “Ms. Asia-Pacific”, ain’t it? And NO, I am NOT saying this simply for the sake of having something to say. Aren’t there already REGIONAL tilts like Ms. Asia (recently won by a Filipina in India, right?) and the inaugural Mr. Asian (early next year. Clue : NOT GCI)?

    And after witnessing THREE LOCALLY-ORGANIZED beauty tilts within a few months of each other – Miss Global, Miss Earth, and Miss Asia-Pacific International – and the animosity of some commentators (myself excluded) to MINOR, MINOR beauty pageants, may I recommend a compromise : let these tilts take turns or alternate in cycles. This avoids “pageant fatigue” (for those who are afflicted with or prone to it, myself excluded), saves the organizer money in that they are not obliged to mount their respective tilts every year, and gives the titlist more than a year to maximize her exposure and at a more comfortable pace / at her own sweet time.

    So using “seniority” as a basis, MAPI every 2nd year, ME every 3rd year, and MG every 4th year.

    • ATE MISS ASIA PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL PO ANG LABANAN! MAY INTERNATIONAL NA KARUGTONG KAYA MASKI YONG WALA SA PACIFIC RIM AY LIGIBLE SUMALI, PARA RIN YONG DEFUNCT MISS ASIA PACIFIC WORLD NA PUNONG PUNO NG CONTROVERSY!

      • so bakit kailangan pang ilagay yung “asia pacific”? ba’t di na lang miss spectacular international or miss stupendous international? para lang miss europe international tapos pwede sumali philippines, china, india, colombia, usa, soutgh africa… the title does not make sense!

      • E YON ANG GUSTO NILA E, BAKIT BA? WAG NYNG PANOORIN KUNG AYAW NYO, YON LANG YON!

        AKO NGA BALAK KUNG MAG TATAG NG MISS GAY TONDO INTERNATIONAL MASKI YONG MGA BAYOT NA HINDI TAGA TONDO PWEDING SUMALI, AT SYEMPRE SUSUNDAN YAN NG MISS GAY QUIAPO INTERNATIONAL, MISS GAY BACLARAN INTERNATIONAL, MISS GAY TAFT AVENUE INTERNATIONAL AND SO AND SO FORTH!

        GAGAWA DIN A KO NG MISS GAY WORLD OR THE UNIVERSE RATHER! O MGA BAYOT ANO PAG HINIHINTAY NYO, JOIN NA!

    • I wouldn’t be too quick to dismiss Miss Earth. It is still one of the pageants that has the most country participation, and has a clear advocacy. National Directors, especially from the western world and the African continent actually view the pageant highly. Even Denmark’s national director, who lambasted the pageant after his ward failed to make it to the semifinals, is now having some change of heart. Here is a [previously] liveblog of the National Directors of Australia and Denmark, discussing the aftermath of Miss Earth 2016:

      • No matter what FILIPINOS say about their own Ms. Earth, it remains as one of those org around that is highly regarded internationally as reflected on the number of participants year in year out. Aside from MW and MU, it is the most franchised beauty pageant org in the world. I don’t get it why Filipinos consider it as a minor pageant contrary to what the international pageant enthusiasts say.

      • TSAKA NAMAN KASI TEH, GAYA GAYA LANG SA MISS U, FROM PRODUCTION NUMBER TO THE SELECTION OF SEMI FINALIST, PATI NGA YONG MGA INTRO NG CANDIDATES (nAME, AGE, COUNTRY) GINAYA DIN NILA. AT PAUTOT NA LANG YONG ADVOCACY NILANG ENVIRONMENTAL EK EK KUNO PERO ANG TOTOO BUSINESS TALAGA ANG MISS EARTH,ANG LAKI KAYA NG KINIKITA NINA PECHAY VENERACION AT LORRAINE NA-SHOCK DYAN SA MISS EARTH NA YAN! AT YONG MGA SUMASALI, KUNWARI NA LANG DAW NA THEY CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT PARA NGA NAMN MANALO, THE MAIN REASON WHY DOES BEAUTIFUL GIRLS JOIN MISS EARTH IS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE A BEAUTY QUEEN AND NOT BECAUSE OF THEIR GENUINE SUPPORT TO THE ADVOCACY KUNO OF THE PAGEANT! SINCE ALL AND ALL E KAIPORKRITOHAN LANG NAMN YANG ENVIRONMENTAL EK EK AT GAYA GAYA, ME WILL REMAIN A SECOND RATE PAGEANT, HINDI KUMO MARAMI ANG DELEGATES E BONGA NA, MI LAST LESS CANDIDATES, MGA 60 PLUS LANG ANG SUMALI PERO TALAGA NGA NAMANG WORLD CLASS ANG QUALITY. PAGEANT STRENGTH IS NOT MEASURED BY THE QUANTITY OF CANDIDATES BUT BY QUALITY, SORRY NA LANG SA ME PERO MAS ME QUALITY PA ANG MISS GRAND INTERNATIONAL!

      • Teng Dyosa sabihin mo yan sa 90 countries na holders ng franchise ng Miss Earth ngayon kung ang sagot nila eh ok, then balikan mo ako at tiyak mag aagree ako sayo. Kaya nga kasama sa so-called big 4 eh..baklang pangit na to lol at naka caps pa talaga.

  4. Hooray for the Netherlands!
    Congratulations Philippines.

    Nice pic of Nichole!
    Also, Joanna Eden’s swimsuit photo has received a lot of criticism. Thank goodness, in a previous thread, you posted photos of other contestants with “near” bikini malfunctions… 😉
    Compared to them, Joanna’s swimsuit pose was nothing to cringe about. Lol
