    Miss Universe Philippines Maxine Medina: Maxine wore this strawberry red gown from Filipino designer Rhett Eala. Rhett designed most (if not all!) of her eveningwear worn during the 65th Miss Universe. The gown featured a heavily beaded bodice in silver crystals that then cascaded down the center front panel–from heavy to light. the dress had a fit-and-flare silhouette. I liked the dress but it just wasn’t “Miss Universe” impacting enough; it seemed more right for “Miss Teen (fill in the blank)” as opposed to the TOP TOP Universal Queen. I don’t know, I just wanted more Couture! More Drama! (See Miss Thailand)
    Score: 8.45

  2. nag joke ang lola niyo about harvey making her “the most popular ms.universe” while true , still parang off ng konti ( kakahiya naman sa ibang ms. u winners that came before her ) and her IMG announcement , happy naman for her , but i wonder if that’s the best venue to announce that? parang mas bongga yung wala tayong lahat kaalam alam and then she suddenly comes out of nowhere and becomes the next tyra, naomi or adriana yung ganoon? i felt her being confidently beautiful … but the ‘ heart’ di ko masyadong na feel haha. anyways best of luck kay pia 🙂 that epic fail announcement was indeed a boost for her.

    and for france … yung crowning nya gave me goosebumps , she was so unassuming 🙂

  3. Well, I posted before na lumalaban c Haiti after Prelim show along with Kenya i guess at di ko na matrace.
    Kasama parin c Haiti at Kenya sa possible 13 ko but marami sila more than 13 actually.
    But i don’t like Indonesia and Colombia.
    Only France of my Top 3 made it 🙂

  4. Pia, I love you! Pero pwede tumabi-tabi ka na muna? May bagong MU na. I think kontrata mo ata sa IMG eh modeling? I get it na pinay ka. Sobrang proud kami sayo. Bigay muna mo na spotlight kay Iris. Peace Pianatics 🙂

    • Context: Live pero recorded yung Chi section na yan. Obviously, may production crew sa background at sila ang tumawag kay Pia. Alangan namang deadmahin sila ni Pia. Tsaka nung dumating naman si Iris, tumabi naman siya. In fact, she was giving the spotlight to Iris in the first few moments. Di siya sumasagot. Si Venus yung nag-rope in sa kanya lagi.

      Makakuda naman to. Kala mo pinanood ang buong video.

    • hinde naman siguro si pia ang kusa nagpa picture kasama si Iris. hinde naman yan ganon. hayaan mo sya hinde naman siguro lagi lagi. alam nya ginagawa nya. kahit sino wish na makapag papicture sa bagong reyna kahit ilang beses hanggat nasa pinas pa sya.

    • ito ang pag iisip na crazy at hinde matino. FYI, May tumawag kay Pia para pagsamahin sila sa pic. anung gusto mo deadmahin sila ni pia na kesyo tapos na ang reign nya sa MU eh mang ssnob at dededmahin nya sino man sa crew ng chi, staff ng MU or kung sino man. If ever hinde mo nakita ang video. Mali ka pa rin. Hinde pwede yang gusto mo.

      • Hahaha sorry friends.. mwah! love love love.

        Sorry Geoff! mwah! Yes ako ang nawalan ng matinong pagiicip. Hirap ng post parthum

  5. ..sana may kumuha kay andrea to manage her career here..i guess the PH is ready for another “yari phenomenon version 2.0” ..i love this girl..she actually has the best top6 Q&A, while her top3 q£a performance is good enough to land her a 1RU finish at most after a consideration of the total package that MUO is looking for ( she has a huge chance to have the crown if only she is more proficient and arriculate in the English language) but i guess, she failed to shine her brightest at those critical moments..maybe she lacked sleep..i hope it’s just that..or maybe the pressure to redeem last years loss was just too much..she seeend too uptight and nervous the whole time that she forgot to smile and just chill..i thot her game plan was to smize…but then she teared up during the boyz2men final look which made me endear to her even more..surely, andrea has yet to gain that level of maturity and all, but then again, that.s her, sweet, kikay, kalat, and most of all, beautiful…and mind you, she speaks sense..btw, i love her style during the dress rehearsals..just relaxed and flowy..besos colombia..💋

    • wala ako problem sa sagot nya. yon ay para sa kanya. But ang nagpatalo sa kanya is kita mo ang over confident nya. she looks too much serious para bang nasa Quiz bee ang peg. Si france kalma lang. Mas maganda man yung 2 runner ups pero mas malakas ang dating ng beauty ni France. too strong. Na aalala ko si Nicole C kay France. they both look matured pero may ibubuga sa Q&A.

      • ..over confident while at the same time too much serious… Parang hirap nun ha.. Buti hindi sya natae..charet..

  6. Why are you posting this Norman this video of Venus Raj? To show that she looks pitiful? Please be reminded that your predictions yielded a nil. As in zero. You have become arrogant.

      • Naku, pano na yan? Umaasa pa naman si Jeremi-mi Jagpal na mapapasa-kanya ang blue gown ni Miss Bulgaria!

        Pangsasali daw sana ni Jerami-mi Jagpal yang gown na yan sa Miss Gay Bangladesh! 😦

  7. Alright, guys, I know I’m beating a dead horse here BUT…

    It seems like the interpreter’s mistranslation of Maxine’s question has not been a [trending] topic anywhere considering A LOT of Filipinos were bashing her for her weak response to a “seemingly easy” question. I only caught this after watching the QnA again; it got me curious after reading a couple of comments here regarding this “issue”. I was so anxious while watching the live telecast that I didn’t pay attention to the interpreter!

    From my understanding, Maxine was advised by her trainers to answer how she understood the question, and it appears like her response was influenced by how the translator [mis]interpreted the question. If we consider the mistranslated question, her answer carries more punch. I don’t know if it would have been enough to advance her, but I believe she would not have been ridiculed or diminunized [as much].

    Oh, the IRONY of it all! I can’t take it!

    • Maxine did not listen to the interpreter it seems. She and the interpreter committed the same error in understanding the word change = makabuluhan when in fact change is pagbabago. I love Maxine! It is what it is. Top 6 is well deserved for her.

      • I think she got confused as to what the real question was! She probably didn’t listen to the question well because her nerves got the best of her (e.g. her QnA in Binibini), and she figured she’d go with what the interpreter had said. Instead of maybe asking Steve to repeat the question OR force herself to listen [well], she relied on the interpreter because his was another set of ears…another person to clarify the question. Instead, the question was not translated correctly. I just find the whole thing ironic.

  8. saw dis at the IG acct of frederick.lobaton – is charmaine elima joining bbp2017 gunning for the MUl title?

  9. Taray ni Norman s SONA interview re Maxine’s Filipino interpreter. Maxine was not my bet since BB. But with all heart and soul,I am congratulating Maxine’s all-out, heartfelt performance,giving her all. And that is the most important, it’s not always winning but how you played the game. Obviously she gave everything. I have nothing but praises for her. Good luck to all your endeavors. God bless you

  10. Iris is very charming. I really like her despite only getting to know about her since she was crowned. We’ve got a great follow-up from Queen P, bravo.

  11. Halatang ninenerbiyos si Venus sa umpisa. Hindi nya malaman kung ano ang sasabihin nya … shades daw? 😃😂 Pero kahit papano nkabawi naman.

  12. I’m very satisfied that Miss U was done and Philippines did a good job hosting it. I hope that they do it again here but this time the funding comes from someone else. I feel like they might have gotten their monies back or at least broken even.

    I do hope that they keep the format with one girl performing at a time. I can’t wait to see the BbP class of 2017. 2016 was another successful banner year for the country in pageantry.

  13. I am sorry. Venus was painful to watch and listen to. Ara Arida may not be as fluent but she was so charming when she did some back stage hosting a few years ago. Venus reeked too much of being a T.H. (pardon the 80s phrase.). From her hairdo to her gown up to her affectations. Again, I am sorry.

    World Peace.

  14. It was awkward (and sometimes cringe-worthy with a couple of grammatical errors and that bit about Steve Harvey’s “shades”) at the start. I have the impression that Venus had to improvise her spiel, and she was obviously nervous. But overall I think she did okay. Her interview with Iris and Pia was actually very refreshing. And I liked that Pia moved to the farther stool and let Iris take centerstage despite difficulties with her huge ballgown. 😁👑🇫🇷🇵🇭
