  1. 13 candidates lang? Parang pang baranggay lang na contest. Lols

    Anyway congrats to all the winners. I did not expect Myanmar to win cause I am rooting for Thailand and Malaysia. But this only based on pictures and videos.
    I still love Vietnam and Philippines.

  2. OMG! Oh my Ghana!
    My hot chocolate lovin’ didn’t place 😦
    I like Nepal (matangkad) and Myanmar.
    I like Brazil as well. He looks like a Sean Cody model, and I mean that as a compliment 🙂

  3. Well-deserved win & congratulations to Myanmar. He’s gwapo & his bearing is undeniably that of a champion.

  4. maybe its his being an actor in Myanmar that gave him the confidence that mattered.. in some posts, e.g. swimsuit competition at a resort in Vigan, the confidence and self-assurance was palpable.. Congratulations to the winners…!!

  6. Yay!!! Sa wakas, natapos na rin tong patimpalak nato. Makakapag focus ka na rin tito norms para sa Miss world and Miss universe. Maraming scoop yan in the future days.

  7. Myanmar is a deserving winner. I’ve always seen him as among the clear frontrunners from day one. And I also had my eye on Nepal based on physique and bearing alone which is not typical of their delegates. Pleasantly surprised that Kian made it as 3rd runner-up despite his less than competitive physique – I just hope it’s not due to his home court advantage. At any rate, congratulations to all the winners.

    • I hope Norman is given a role within BPI or MWP organization . He is meant for bigger and more serious things . This pageant reminds me of the mock contests we used to do in the neighborhood growing up
