    • Whats wrong with her answer? May sense naman yung sinasabi niya. Siguro hindi ka lang marunong mag comprehend.

      • Andun yung thought. She was able to answer the question, ano ba hinahanap mo? Mabulaklak na sagot?

    • I like how she answered the questions. Not very pageant patty and she seemed very bubbly and someone you can easily approach. My only criticism is maybe she can work on concluding her answers and not rely on “Thank you”.

    • Gemma don’t ever compare Elima to Maxine. Maxine even at first look appears to be not smart while Elima looks intelligent and witty and her grammar is on point.

    • anong pinagsasabi ng Gemma na to. mema ka lang? girl, her delivery was spontaneous, well-thought out and very bubbly.

  1. Why po naging ganyan ang line-up? It was edgy when they were many, but it becomes less interesting when fitted to 40? Stefanowitz, Howell, Barker, Daisha, Alita, Magtanong, Mackey, Lehman – are not there. They represent a majority creme of the crop. Haist.

    • May reason siguro. Alita and Daisha are very young and it might be worth it if they bide their time and get more exposures. Maybe same for Lehman unless she is being fielded for MW. Howell is out.

  2. agree on maria gail. she was at the top of my list in A&Q for MU title and next is Jehza ( as long as they will style her pang MU aura) napapansin ko kase pang MI ang ginagawang style sa kanya. next to her is dindi and Charmaine and lastly Mariel.
    Sa KF naman wala akong choice pero i think si Rachel pwede siguro. Since Mia and Stefanny is out in the top 40. but even if they include them in the top 40 wala sa kanila ang MU Ko.

  3. Lalong naging kamukha ni Jinky Pacqiao si Stephany Stefanowitz.

    Kaloka talaga veneers ng KF girls. Hindi maikakaila kung saang camp sila.

    • mas marami nga ang kf sa a&q, quality naman ba? hindi sa pang mamaliit sakanila or what, pero just because mas marami sila we can say na it’s kf’s year. remember kahit na ano pang dami ng tiga isang camp, if hindi naman de kalidad lahat, wala din. remember last BBP2016, kung ilan lang ang nakapasok na kf. 🙂

  4. So far, im loving dindi, maine, katarina, sirene and jehza. Nakajapagtaka, walang pinadala ang Cebu. Duguan pa din ang labanan kahit konti lang yung masasabi mong dyosa talaga na ready nang ipanglaban sa international contest kinabukasan.

  5. I was really keeping my eye on Maine Elima…… until Dindi was photographed with that red dress! grabe. Ang daming magaganda. Maine, Dindi, Jehza (ohhh legss) mariel De leon (she’s sexy!) angelique de leon (better pasarela!) yun pa lang. medyo busy at hindi ko ma search lahat! pero kavogue! daming magaganda this year. repeater man or first timer,

  6. I miss ate laila ..when will u be back..?..all that matter to me is d blogger’s input and ate lail’s commentaries..also miss ana winter ..hahahhahah ….

  7. Many lovely candidates. My two personal faves this year:

    Charmaine Elima
    Sirene Sutton

    Good luck to all the girls! I wish ALL of them well.

  9. GRABE ANG GANDA NI ELIMA NANLAMON KASO COY DAW SABI NUNG ISA JAN 😂😂😂 SI MARIEL GIRL KONTING DYETA SAYANG ANG GANDA! SI SUTTON DIN MAGANDA VERY NANETTE MEDVED PERO IN THE END ELIMA IS THE ONE. HER STUNNING FACE AND GORGEOUS TAN COMPENSATES FOR THE LACK OF HEIGHT

    • Elima and Sutton those two are gonna duke it out. You can add Angelique. I don’t think Mariel’s square face can be changed by dieting, she might need some facial sculpting. If they let Sirene tan a bit she might actually be more gorg than Elima.

    • I still don’t feel Mariel – she has no charisma and her beauty without make up on and hair extension is questionable . If u want to find out , u can look back at primer 2014.

      • Pansinin mo Yung pan ng camera SA video ni Will parang board na si Mariel. Screening palang Yan. Sabi ni Lu Sierra sa interview ni Connie Sison “people expect you to smile even if u r tired”. Mahirap daw maging Miss Universe. Kudos! To those girls who endure the excruciating process but still maintain their composure!

  10. As i have said in my previous comment, we might be witnessing major wins from KF this year because there is an issue between Jonas Gaffud and Madam Stella. I can not divulge it here though. What I can only say is Jonas is too ambitious at walang delikadesa.

    • Na-curious naman ako masyado sa comment mo, Jeremi. Konting clue pa, me kinalaman on the last Miss U pageant sa Pinas? O contract issue b ng mga binibini? Sabihin mo na since we’re all a.k.a here hihihi.

      • Yes Hana may kinalaman ito sa past Miss Universe dyan sa Pinas at sa MU org mismo at ang past MU sa Doral. Yun na!

    • “Jeremi AKA FurnitureS con Carrying your own Chairs” !

      Scared of me ? Aint you scared of Jonas calling him wa- delicadeza ? (I think thats foul if u can t support & disclose it ). Ambitious – can be forgiven . I for one is one . You are as well . You just have to accept it !

      Just saying !

    • Naku ha, china-Charotte Pempengco mo si Mama J 😮

      Apparently, you’ve never heard of 😮 LIBEL 😮

      Umuwi ka na lang kasi sa Indonesia 😄

    • Kung di ako nagkakamali. Theory ko lang naman ito. Baka yung gusot bet mama j and stella is that gusto ni mama j makuha ang franchise ng MUP which is under stella since isa si jonas sa mga creative director nung idinaos ang MU dito sa pinas. Pero theory ko lang to base sa sinasabi ni Jeremi na may issue talaga sila. I hope naman walang issue para evrybody happy lang..

    • Hoy! furnitures. Galing mo naman. Close kayo ni Madamme? i dont hate KF. Pero il tell you. Marami man maganda sa KF. Aces pa rin ang mamamayagpag sa bb2017. hinde man makakuha ng maraming titles pero makakakuha din sila. pa major major ka pa dyan!!!. remember may ugaling pasaway ang KF nung time ni MJ at Janicel. Pero ang Aces na carry naman magaling makipagusap kay Madamme kaya ayun last year Aces again and they proved it and Pia is the evidence. ayun pinagsuot ng pinoy designer gowns.
      Hinde rason yang nasa isip mo para hinde bigyan ng crown ang aces and queens lalo na kung deserving naman. Kaloka ka!

  11. if Daisha is going to join in the future, she could potentially go head-to-head with Catriona Gray, granted the latter ACTUALLY joins.

  12. So far I am surprised by Jehza Hueler. Watch out for this girl. She’s got the Miriam Q’s vibe and she could be the silent killer in this batch.

      • Jehza is not Pia,
        Pia is not Jehza
        Please do not compare.
        Basta for me, taller girls has more advantage. Beauty can be enhanced, good pasarela can be learned and good communication as well.

    • Huelar is only 5’5 . I like her grace and posture . Im not that keen w beauties w middling height to win a crown

      • hi Gemma , I know you meant well. It means she have nice proportions on her body that being 5’5 will not be noticed. She can be a great Mutya.
        Still Jehza is 5’5. My 12 yr old daughter is 5’5 born Oct 04
        Itabi mo sa glamazonas and you decide.
        Rachel Peters , Dindi Pejares have height advantage.

    • agree din kay jehza pero napapansin ko pang MI ang inistyle sa kanya. pwede din naman but i see Miss Universe on her. ma ayusan lang sya ng tama na pang MU hinde nila i ignore yan. i think she can deliver very well naman sa Q&A. nakakatakot lang kase once sa MI sya mapunta.

      • Jehza is giving me MI vibe too in fact she would be the one I would pick for MI. But she can definitely fight for the MU crown based on her upgraded looks this year.

  13. Exciting update! I like the styling of Arienne no. 13. Siya mukhang fresh and new! Hope she makes final 40

  14. I thought they would focus on Q&A at screening more? Regardless, congrats to all the 55 that made it to second round! My bet is still on Arienne Calingo (#13). I am sure she

    • Yes that’s true. I won’t name the Binibini anymore (she is now an Official Candidate) but the guy who squeezed her butt was immediately expelled by security and escorted out of Novotel.

  15. So far, my faves are Angelique de Leon, Mariel de Leon, Gail Tobes, Sirene Sutton, and Chanel Thomas. Si Rachel Peters never ko na-like pero lumalaban. Yung iba di ko pa napapansin.

  16. What is the age limit for Binibini? Is it 26 or 27?
    I tried looking for an answer in their website and the only one I could find is 26, meaning Stefanowitz is overaged (as she is 27). However, since she is part of the top 55, has this changed? Is it now 27?

  17. I really like to see Angelique de Leon and Maria Angelica Mariel de Leon transform their bodies into the body of Pia. These two have striking facial beauty. Their problem is the body. I think they have good personality and speaking skills.

    • If they will be crowned, dun na mag-start ang transformation nila. Like what the previous winners did. 🙂

      • Thanks, Norman. Good to hear it wasn’t because she didn’t appeal to the judges.

      • oh nice to know that. shes my favorite too but i want her to join next year or next 2 to 3 years tp become more competitive. baka masayang lang kase sya now. mapontential sya lalo na sa MU.

    • @y chang- I was rooting for her. Oh well perhaps next year or she might come back, who know’s. Im still gonna roof for her.
