  1. Just a thought …..

    Since MWP is no longer in the hands of C Quirino , will the new ND merge it with BBPCI again?

    Will they drop MGI ?Will they drop Intercon ? How about Globe ? What if we use this 3 pagents as playground / dry run / practice field for the bigger 5 and use runners up instead ?

    What if ME of Carousel gives title to BBPCI and gets a spot every year ?

    What if Bb Pilipinas has 5 major titles only ? MU MI MW ME MS?

    What if every year, there are 50 candidates but will have pre pagent ? Talent / EG /SS /Terno / Interview ?

  2. I hve a feeling na magpa-pageant din si ferica medina, maxine’s sister. I like her very oriental.

  3. alright! Finally, as i said b4 to this blog na mas excited ako sa bbp 2017 kaysa MU last monday. excited din sa MU but feel ko kase maxine will not give us a good fight in Q&A. so na wala ang Full excitement ko. But still im proud of her. Important is she made it in the top 5 and its not bad. So the pressure is still there for our next bbp universe. all i can say, we need to find the right Queen who will represent our country in the universe not only in the universe but in all titles. May the best girl/s wins according sa exact na katangian na hinahanap ng bawat pageants and especially ng bagong owner ng MU which is IMG.

  4. Bet ko yung 2017 batch eh yung mga basher’s edition.

    My picks for 2017 batch:
    1. Certified basher
    2. Nagmamarunong sa english
    3. Gown critique
    4. Pag nanalo, di susuportahan ng Pilipinas
    5. Body shamers
    6. Nagmamaganda lang
    7. May attitude
    8. Member ng Gabriela

    šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚

  5. I want Catriona period. Again pag Hindi marunong makipagtalastasan sa english eh wag nang sumali. Pag gumaganda Lang dahil sa make up wag na sumali. Pag pandak wag nang sumali. Lalung lalo na pag pangit wag nang ipagsiksikan ang sarili. Beauty contest ito.

      • Kukuha ako ng Bisayang interpreter sa Q&A ko hihhi.
        Sa lahat ng interview ko ay may translator din akong Bisaya kahit ayaw nyo hihihi … Charette lng

  6. Few points im concerned about BBP2017
    1. Please for the love of God, update the crowns! They are so dated and look tacky! I always cringe looking at them especially the ones worn by Hammond and Maxine. Compared to other countries’ crowns, ours look the cheapest.

    2. Prioritize only 3 ALPHA titles– UNIVERSE, INTL and SUPRA. This will give more chances for quality girls to compete again and not get wasted on minor tier and contoversial pageants like Ms Globe, Intercontinental and Grand.

    3. After Pia’s remarkable reign, Maxine’s universally appealing gorgeous face, we NEED to send a girl who at least excells on both the looks and communications department. She may not be as pretty as Max, as eloquent as Pia, as sexy as Venus/MJ BUT she has all their attributes rolled into one. We need to maintain our top5/6 feat and not let Thailand and Indonesia rain on our parade.

    4. I hope Pinoys lessen the BASHING as it truly affects our candidates and our reputation gets tarnished. Sure we can criticize all we want but to bash and wish someone ill is totally different.

    5. Yun lang and spread love mga tol! Luis signing off! šŸ˜‰

  8. One critique about the pageant is the sponsorship awards. It’s almost always one or a couple of girls hoarding the loot. It’s telegraphing the winners and makes the other girls look destitute in the back, awkwardly eyeing the overflowing sashes on the frontrunner. The sponsors can just be announced in the broadcast, similar to MU.

  9. Puede kayang magjoin ang taga Venus na kagaya ko.
    May Philippine Pport naman ako pero every 6 mos ako umuuwi with 3 weeks vacation lang.
    Hindi kaya ako kainggitan at ipadethrone kapag nanalo akong Miss Universe Philippines 2017 hihihi
    nagtatanong lang po .. charette lang šŸ™‚

  10. First Final Deadline on February 24. Kelan ang second final at last final deadlines? Hihihi.
    Sana magfocus ang BBP sa quality ng mga candidates not on quality. Kahit 24 candidates lang basta mga crown worthy.

    Sana palitan na ang mga crowns. As much as possible hawig sa mga international crowns.

    Sana two titles lang ang pipiliin MUP and MIP. Yung mga runner up, sila isabak sa mga second tier pageants.

  11. @Shk Ayesa’

    Totally agree!
    I get the fact that having “six” winners is spreading the love. There is just that “too many chefs in the kitchen” feeling with 6 crowns and 2 runners-up
    Having only 3 queens increases the prestige and stock of a BbP title. Having 6 queens diminishes the title just a tad. Do we really think that a BbP Globe is in the same caliber with MUP or BbP International?
    Have titles for MUP, MI and Supra and appoint the others to the runners-up is an excellent compromise.

    My two cents…but I think you make a good point.

  12. After learning the possible girls featured by tito Norman to compete for binibini, I told myself that I will be happy if any one of them will take home the MUP crown but I realized I have my fixed to Arianne Calingo. She was my first runner-up to Catriona Gray last MWP 2016. I’m not expecting too much from Arianne but there’s something special about her even if she’s not the prettiest and even if she’s not a Miss U caliber. I prefer mestizas over exotic morenas but if I supported an exotic morenita for MUP then that girl tells a lot.

    • Teh, huwag na, tama na ang beauting lupa. please huwag nang ipilit. huwag nang ibalik ang dark age, baka di pa makapasok sa 13. Ikaw na na ang nag sabi hindi kagandahan! I’d rather have a face and body of maxine than your girl….

  13. I hope there wont be disqualifications after naming the final contestants .
    Bb Pilipinas should learn from “name and shaming ” in the past and even the yesteryears . Say, KRDS ‘ and Olafson ‘s cases last year , wherein disqualified after the official announcemnet, pre pagent activities , interviews and photoshoots.

    I hope ladies should be officially measured ” BAREFOOT” by their respective camps and be validated and re measured by BPCI.

    I hope other camp steps up their game and fight fair and squarely. I hope they remove their veneers and just enhnce the real beauty .

    I hope contestants should be thick skinned to just smile even when bash . It is good that the late “all caps guy ” during Pia s time never came back this 2016.

    I want to watch a “Battle of Beauties “- a show where everyone is good to fill the 2016 s edition, without worries for the International scene .

    Lastly, i hope there will be new crown for MU, and lesser titles .

    MU /MI / SUPRA would be enough . 1st runner up can take MGI , 2nd run can fill Intercon .we can drop GLoBE

    I hope ….

    • I totally agree! Focusing only on alpha pageants gives other girls say runner ups an opportunity to compete in international pageants as training grounds for major titles the next year.

  14. Exciting times. I know everyone wants someone who is a good communicator but let’s all remember that it is still a beauty contest. I hope these next batch features diverse Filipina beauties with interesting backgrounds and aspirations.

  15. Here we are again. I want to see a candidate who have the ability to communicate whatever language or dialect she is more comfortable with. BPCI should not only focus on their beauty, height but their communication skills is a must.

  16. Wish list:
    1. Kelsey Merrit
    2. Cat Gray
    3. Anjie Balatbat
    4. Nikita McElroy
    5. Aya Abesamis
    6. Suzzie Stefanowitz
    7. Vanessa Mae Walters
    8. Hannah Locsin

  17. I just saw yesterday at Baluarte in Vigan some Miss Earth Philippines runners-up and BbP 2016 titleholders. Stunning si Ms Joana Eden, as in maganda sya sa personal. She was wearing a red (maroon) dress. Miss Hammond was also beautiful, and so was Ms Manalo. Christy Macgarry was also there. Walang nagpapapicture sa kanila.
