  1. Mukhang kay Mariel ang huling halakhak.

    Pinag pi piyestahan na naman si Mocha ngayon. Trending ang lola mo, for all the wrong reasons.

    #FireMocha

  2. Boyet should be proud of how Mariel turned out to be .. smart classy and beautiful . I understand where she’s coming from. Boyet used to be a drug addict.

  3. Mariel is very articulate and opinionated. As a beauty queen , she should be able to express her views without completely alienating the other side. I understand , she is still very young and needs a lot of learning to do

  4. As usual napunta na naman sa yellow vs dds ang huntahan!

    Simple lang naman mga bakla. Mariels careless and ill motivated tweet caused the country to be divided even more. Hindi siya ang tamang ganap sa MIO kaya huwag tayonh mag away dito dahil yan ang choice ni mariel. Let her suffer thr consequences alone.

  5. Talaga naman!

    Pag si Mariel ang feature ni Norman namumutaktak ng opinyon ang comment box! Abot nanaman ng 💯 to!

    Good or bad publicity is still a publicity! Mariel is on the right track!

    Pareho kami ng personality ng babaing to Kaya I know where she is coming from. Pray ko lang sa kanya ma-maintain niya Yung competitive mood pag dating niya sa Japan instead of “mood swing”.

  6. Real queens know how to stand for what they believe is right . They stand up to the forces of darkness that rule the land. They stand up to evil . MARIEL IS A TRUE QUEEN.

    • i so agree with you, @Venus Rah!
      i admire the strength of her conviction
      and her singing voice besides
      being outspoken is not necessarily a bad trait

  7. This is how they should have styled Rachel Peters instead of that photoshop mess. I personally don’t find Mariel to be pretty although I can see why people find her beautiful. Her large head yet really small face is quite disturbing to me. However, her stylist made it work and she looks SO regal and amazing. I seen no visual doubts with this photo shoot. Regardless of her controversial and uncesserary behaviour, I see nothing but a top contender in this photo. Hopefully, she doesn’t turn into another Bianca Guidotti; so much hype and hope for a b2b win towards this woman who was not that pretty and in the end clapped miserably…

  8. nakakatawa talaga yung mga post ng mga obvious na certified fanatic ni poong nazeeraan aka lord dutae. napaka-unqueenly at negative raw ni mariel just because she speaks her mind. pero pag si duterte, na PRESIDENTE, ang magmura, mag-encourage na pumatay at mang-rape, aba e palakpakan at tuwang-tuaw pa! nasaan ba ang mga utak ninyo? or may utak ba kayo?! :p

    • “for your own good pwede ba umayos ka sa pagpopost or tweet sa social media. Mygad you are so negative and unqueenly”

      Walang kinalaman Duterte jan BOPLAKS amp…pilit kinakabit si Duterte sa lahat ng issue, paki nya ba sa MI. But, well, sorry pero kailangang magngitngit ka sa galit sa kanya for the next 5 years.

      • kunwari ka pa, e kaya nga kayo galit kay mariel kasi natamaan ang kapalpakan ng dutae admin. ano ba ang unqueenly sa tweet niya, the fact na she’s aware of current issues di ba mas dapat yung hangaan?! at ang pagmumura ni dutae, pootangeena, yun ang UNPRESIDENTIABLE! 😛

      • *e di sorry na at mali ang pagkaintindi mo, kinonek mo tuloy kay Duterte na wala naman kinalaman sa MI. Digong Duterte, PHILIPPINES!
        *nasaan ang galit kay mariel sa mga katagang “i like you Mariel” “for your own good” “i wish you all the luck” – BUANG!
        *walang unqueenly sa tweet nya, it is how she does it that is making her unqueenly. kaya nga “umayos sa pagpopost” hindi naman wag magpost. sino bang ibang queens na negative? si imelda? so anyare sa kanya?
        *hanga ako sa kanya dahil kaya nyang iexpress sarili nya, but there is a proper way of doing it esp magcocompete sya sa MI, kung sa debate sana sya magcompete, GO!
        *walang kinalaman si Duterte dito, but yeah, go ahead magngitngit ka sa galit.
        *again, sorry at mahina ka umintindi.

    • Tama ka beh!!! Kung siguro ung pinost ni Mariel is this…
      “Putangena kaung mga dilawan!!! Mamatay na kayo!!!”
      malamang sa malamang sadabihin nila napaka “Queenly” ni Mariel at kahanga hanga at sadyang nagpapakatotoo!!!
      Actually di ako naiinis kay DU30, naiinis ako sa mga Dutertards kasi tinatangalan nila ng karapatan magbigay ng opinyon ang ibang tao. Bakit sa mga nakaraang presidente di naman ganyan ang mga supporters nila?

      • yan nga ang nakakatawa sa mga dutae fanatic, galit na galit kay mariel just because her opinion differs from theirs. feeling ng mga fanatic sila lang ang tama at kung di ka sang-ayon sa kanila sasabihan kang deelawan, adik, pootangeenamu, matokhang ka sana, ma-rape ka sana lol

      • @Baklah

        Paano mangyayari yun e mismong tatay ni Mariel DILAW… Hello?!… Ilang beses tumakbong bilang pulitiko si Christopher De Leon para sa Partido Liberal?!.. Hindi mo ata alam na kamag-anak ng mga De Leon ang mga Sumulong (Nanay ni Cory)… at sila Mar Roxas… Lola ni Mar Roxas si Trinidad De Leon na pinsan ng Lolo ni Mariel na si Gil De Leon!

      • @C2F

        akala ko dati matalino ka!!! di mo na gets ang point ng comment ko. what I mean is that, what if na may mag post any BQ ng ganoon nagmumura “Putaena ka Leni ek ek” malamang kaung mga DDS sasabihing queenly paren kahot magmura kasi pro DDS ang statement. Ang hirap kasi sa inyo may nagsalungat lang, masama na agad silang tao at ampangit ng ugali walang modo pero di naman nagmura.

      • @Baklah..

        Gets ko point mo… pag si Mariel murahin si Leni… unqueenly parin yun kahut sa mga tinatawag mong dutertards… point is hindi dapat sya dapat nakikialam sa pulitika dahil hindi beauty queen sya.. hindi pulitiko.

      • true. wala namang binanggit si mariel na duterte sa tweet nya, the way she expressed it is what we are referring to as unqueenly. everytime she tweets, duterte related or not, negative kasi. we love her and we care about her kaya sinasabi namin to. mabuti na kaya nyang i-express sarili nya but the way she does it is not doing her any good. pwede namang positive scripting kahit negative yung thought nya. ano ba mahirap intindihin dun? at wag nyo pilit sinasali si duterte diyo mga BUANG, hindi sya sasali sa MI.

      • Err C2F Hindi sya dapat nakikialam dahil BQ sya at di politiko. Sorry I beg to disagree, yes she maybe a BQ but that doesn’t mean she will keep mum of what is happening around her. For example in Venezuela, BQs voices out their feelings thru photoshoots with what is happening to their country and worse is yun iba nga napapatay pa. So ano pag negative ang tweet nya magagalit kayo pero pag all praise naman sya sa tweet nya, all praise din kayo. Don’t be blinded, pag may mali ginagawa ang gobyerno, kailangan bigyan ng pansin, pag may maganda ginawa kailangan purihun. Pero sa nakikita ko ngayon marami mali. Wag na tayo magbulag-bulagan.

  9. I would love her to be our rep in Miss Universe. Ang ganda n’ya. Pero since d’yan s’ya itinalaga, I’d support her win or lose.

    • OH REALLY, BUT YOUR NANAY IS REALLY PUSHING TO JOIN BEAUCON DI BA? AT GANDANG GANDA SYO ANGINA MO? SYEMPRE WALA NAMANG NANAY ANG DI NAAALIW SA SARILING ANAK. AT DI BA PATI MGA FRIENDSHIP MO PINUPUSH KA RIN NA SUMALI? INUTO KA LANG NANIWALA KA NAMAN!

      • Of course my mom is my number 1 fan, unlike your mom. Siguro when you were inside your mother’s womb, she drank an abortion pill, but since you were a virus, kumapit ka ng bongga, kaya ‘yan nangyari sa iyo, puro ka galit sa mundo. Kawawa kang bakla ka, isa kang kahihiyan sa LGBT community ninyo.

      • NAKU ANA WINTER TRUELILY KA DYAN! PINALAGLAG TALAGA AKO NG MUDANG KO KASO KUMAPIT AKO NG BONGANG BONGA AT NAKA ONE FOOT FORWARD TALAGA AKO KAYA DI AKO NA ABORT AT HETO AKO NGAYON NAMAMAYAGPAG NG BONGANG BONGA!

  10. A crown should not prevent someone from speaking and standing up to what she believes in. I appaud Mariel for doing so.

    • alam mo naman ang mga utak dutae, basta against sa poon nila nag-aapoy na sa galit! mas gusto pa nila yung magmura, pumatay at mang-rape!

      • @San Longhino

        So mas ok magkalat ng lagim ang mga druglords habang pinopondohan nila ang pagkapanalo at makinarya ng mga narco-politicians na walang ginawang mabuti sa sambayanang pilipino kundi magnakaw sa kaban ng bayan kasama ang mga donasyon para sa mga nasalanta ng kalamidad at giera?!

      • @c2f (certified2fanatic?) druglords ba kamo? e bakit di mo tanungin si poong dutae mo? kumusta na sina peter lim, charlie tan at kenneth dong? kapag 1 o 2 gram of shabu, patay pero tone-toneladang shabu may due process ek ek!!!

        “walang ginawang mabuti kundi magnakaw sa kaban ng bayan” – sina marcos, estrada, arroyo at binay na chummy chummy ngayon ni dutae!

        “donasyon para sa nasalanta — di ka ba nagbabasa ng balita? ung totoong balita hindi yung galing kina mocha, tanungin mo ang mgaromualdez na opisyal sa leyte na pinsan ni marcos, na ayon sa coa ang nag misspent ng pondo

      • @San Longhino

        Yung mga binangit mong Peter lim, Charlie tan at Kenneth Dong e may mga backers na politiko na umaapaw sa makinarya at mga malalaking sindikato sa China… natural kaya nila depensahan ang sarili nila… At bakit mo hindi isinama sa listahan ang mga Parohinog ng Ozamis… at mga Loreto ng Leyte?.. Hindi bat kilalang druglord ang bise-gobernador nila na 1st cousin ng department of Energy Secretary ni Pinoy na si Jericho Loreto Petilla? Isama mo pa kapatid ni Ralph Recto.

        Yung mga sinasabi mong friends ni Du30, yung ang mga gusto mag Federalismo ang bansa na ayaw na ayaw mangyari ng mga Aquino-Cojuangco & Friends… dahil mawawala ang mga monopolya nila sa mga pinakamalalaking industriya ng bansa na syang nagpapahirap sa sambayanang Pilipino. Hiyang hiya naman ang small-time hueteng money ni Estrada sa pamilya ng asawa ni Leni Robredo sa Bicol! Hiyang-hiya naman si Gloria at Bong-bong kay Danding Cojuangco sa Coco Levy funds na ginamit nyang pambili sa majority shares ng San Miguel corporation na Trillion na ang halaga ngayon!?! Aral-aral din kasi ng history and economics pag may time. 🙂

        And last but not the least… Yung mga opisyal ng comission on audit na pinagsasabi mo e puro appointed ng nakaraang administrasyon.. Natural isisisi nila sa mga Romualdez yan at hindi sa pinsan ni Mariel De Leon na si Mar Roxas!

      • @c2f
        mygulay! sinabi nang huwag magpapaniwala kay mocha! at talagang pinatulan mo yung naga leaks na naging nganga leaks dahil walang kumagat! yung bulag na kapatid ni jessie ba tinutukoy mo? daredevil ang peg LOL
        danding cojuangco is a known MARCOS crony, and btw hindi mahihiya si marcos dun kasi bilyong dolyares ang ninakaw ng pamilya nila! napasama pa nga sa guiness word record ang ginawa ng mga marcos di ba -BIGGEST THEFT!
        ay engot ka talaga, umamin na nga si romualdez na yung lgu ng leyte ang nagmisspent!
        ikaw ang mag-aral ng history at economics! saang planeta ka ba nakatira at out of this world yang mga pinagsasabi mo! LOL

      • @c2f

        at saka ano ba ang tinutukoy mo dito–
        “Yung mga sinasabi mong friends ni Du30, yung ang mga gusto mag Federalismo ang bansa na ayaw na ayaw mangyari ng mga Aquino-Cojuangco & Friends… dahil mawawala ang mga monopolya nila sa mga pinakamalalaking industriya ng bansa na syang nagpapahirap sa sambayanang Pilipino”

        monopolya sa pinakamalaking industriya ng bansa na nagpapahirap sa sambayan? anong industriya ba ito? na-curious naman ako, pwedeng paki specify naman po… 🙂

      • C2f, it looks like mocha’s 6 yrs of college does not compare to Mariel’s 2 yrs . It’s the quality . Not the quantity that counts.
        At sumo bang mad maraming napatay ? Si Duterte ba o yung nga drug lords?
        Kung Hindi ninakaw ni Marcos, Baka mayaman na ang Pinas.

        C2f, obviously u r very smart . But you are blind and 100% deaf . Tse

      • @San Longhino

        Yung #Nagaleaks na sinasabi mo… hindi talaga papatok yun pag ang mga kapartido mo ang may-ari ng mainstream media! GRABE, ang source mo Guiness book of World records?!.. So walang kwenta pala ang hatol ng Manila Regional Trial court and Supreme court, at international courts na napawalang sala ang mga Marcos sa 32 counts of illegally transferring wealth abroad.. Isama mo pa ang 900+ cases na isinampa ng PCGG(na itinayo ni Cory) kung saan sampung walang kwentang kaso nalang ang natitira.

        YES Danding was a CRONY for the purpose of our government to be able to own shares at San Miguel Corp dahila ayaw yan mangyari ng mga Sorianos, Ayalas & Zobels. In short, hindi kay Danding ang mga yaman na yan kundi sa taong bayan na tuluyan nyang kinamkam simula nung namatay si Ninoy!.

        Hindi inamin ng mga Romualdez na sila ang maykagagawan ng misspent budget gaya ng sinabi ng Abias-CBN, Inquirer and Rappler! Bakit hindi mo tanunging ang mga ka alyado ng mga Cojuangco sa Leyte!… FYI, hindi na mga Romualdez ang ruling family ng Leyte kundi ang mga Loreto! Hello?!

        Monopolized ang mga major industries dahil naprivatize ang mga government shares ng major corporations and public utilities…

        Madaming example.. like Telecom, copra, rice atbp.. pero simula tayo sa Energy… we produce the largest amount of energy in South East Asia pero pangalawa tayo sa Asia sunod sa Japan na pinakamahal na kuryente!.. Dahil sa dami ba naman na pinatayo ni Marcos na powerplants… pinagbebenta ba naman ni Cory ang government shares sa mga kamaganak at Kaibigan nya sa murang halaga… sama mo pa ng distribution which is Meralco.. so natural wala say ang gobyerno sa pagtaas ng presyo ng kuryente na dapat ay libre na ngayon!… Akala ko ba madami kang alam si History?! Baka ang binabasa mo lang e yung mga history sa mga txtbooks sa school na sinulat ng historian na apointed ng Corry Administration!

      • @Fabian

        Quality?!…
        Mocha is a UST graduate who’s dedicating her time and effort to become an effective public servant on of being an active member of several charitable NGOs..

        Mariel’s 2 years cooking course produced what?!
        Yes, she’s became a beauty queen through her family connections but what else has she done for the benefit of the greater good?.. Aside from tweeting implied allegations, disrespect for our president and acting self-righteous?!

      • Dati natutuwa ako dito kay C2F dahil sa mga bits of history na sinasabi nya, pero ngayon 🤢🤢🤢 I CANNOT!
        Nakakadiri ng slight yung pag dedefend nya.

      • DID AQUINO CODDLE AND PROTECT DRUGLORDS?

        Most definitely yes, either out of his sheer incompetence, or outright complicity.

        That’s the only conclusion one would get after the police all over the country, following incoming President Duterte’s announced priority, have arrested or killed more than 200 drug lords and dealers in just a few weeks.

        All of a sudden — with hundreds of self-admitted, small-time dealers and users even surrendering to authorities, fearing they would be victims of summary executions — the nation has been awakened to the reality that our drug problem, which really afflicts mostly the poor, indeed has reached horrific proportions. So much so that many sectors of this purportedly Catholic nation are now reviving the call for the death penalty.

        Such scale of the illegal-drug and crime menace couldn’t have emerged overnight. I can only conclude that President Aquino allowed it to grow during his six years in office. He had hundreds of millions of pesos in confidential funds, and the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission (headed by his executive secretary, Paquito Ochoa), yet did little to fight the drug lords.

        Aquino just did not make fighting the proliferation of illegal drugs, and for that matter to combat crime, his priority. His priority was to fight “corruption.” I put that in quotation marks since his fight against corruption targeted only the opposition, and not grafters in his administration, those involved in such blatant cases that affected the lives of millions of Filipinos, such as the mess in MRT-3 and the botched contract to provide LTO with car plates.

        I’ve reviewed all of Aquino’s six State of the Nation Addresses (SONAs), and it is shocking that in all of these, he had not even mentioned that we have a serious illegal drug problem, as if he were deliberately concealing its existence.

        In Aquino’s first (2010), second (2011), and last (2015) SONAs, there was absolutely no reference at all to the fact that we have a huge illegal drug problem in the country. The word “drugs” is not even mentioned at all in these SONAs.

        Among the hundreds of drug dealers and addicts police captured in the past weeks, anticipating incoming President Duterte’s orders.
        Among the hundreds of drug dealers and addicts police captured in the past weeks, anticipating incoming President Duterte’s orders.

        Aquino mentions the drug problem in his 2012, but only once, and as if he had already defeated it. He said then: “He shares the same fate as the more than ten thousand individuals arrested by the PDEA in 2011 for charges relating to illegal drugs.”

        But the President’s statement really was strange, since by “he,” Aquino was referring to one Raymond Dominguez, who was arrested for carnapping charges, as well as an unnamed suspect in the Makati bus bombing in 2011. The suspect, a member of the police’s Special Action Force, was acquitted of all charges in 2015.

        There is a similar dismissive tone in his single reference to drugs in his 2014 SONA: “I will leave you to your conscience — if you feel any remorse for your fellowmen who have become addicted to the illegal drugs you have helped to smuggle in, or for the farmers who are being deprived of fair profit from doing honest work.”

  11. Abangers ako sa MI this years at sa Rep natin… Last year… hindi maingay si Ms. Verzosa pero wagi….. this year makuda ang ating representative parang 2013 lang at lost… WAIT tayo dito…

    • There’s always high expectations and wishful thinking among local pageant fanatics for the country’s rep when the reigning title holder is a Filipina. In 2013 Bea was the reigning MI so the pressure was on Bianca for a b2b win. Ditto for Mariel this time since Kylie is the current MI. It also happened for Maxine in 2016 MU. This is a bad attitude among local pageant fans because it put too much pressure on the chosen delegate. Don’t blame Mariel for this because it’s not her doing.

  12. Nakinikinita ko na ang babaitang ito kapag nanalo ng Miss International………

    Reyna ng hambog yan!!!!

    Ngaun palang, nauuyam ako sa kanya…..ngaun palang hambog na hambog na ako sa kanya.

    Kapag yan ay nanalo, feeling “narcissist” yan!!!!

    Napaka-unqueenly ng ugali!!!!

    Ngaun palang binabawi ko ang suporta ko sa kanya!!!!

    Kesehodang manalo ka!!! wala na akong pake sa iyo!!! bruha ka!!!

    • No big deal if you no longer support Mariel because she spoke her mind against the appointment of Mocha to a government position. Truth be told the b*tch isn’t qualified for the job. It only shows your bias that is indefensible.

      • @Lyn

        How is a baccalaureate degree graduate with 2 years in medschool and an online following of 5million not qualified to be the assistant of our Secretary of the Presidential Communications Office of the Philippines? Just because she was a former sex blogger and sexy dancer?

        Who do you think is more desserving? A daughter of a former sexy actor and her mistress? A beauty queen who has a vocational degree in cooking?!

      • @C2F, because she spreads fake news and her points are always colored with propaganda, not to mention illogical views? Ilang beses na siyang napahiya sa mga post niya kaya laging pagdelete na lang ang ginagawa. Yan ba ang qualified communications person? Hindi natuto at laging palpak? Anybody can see that she got that post from sucking up to the powers-that-be. Pero bilog ang mundo.

        My taxes shouldn’t have to go to pay for that woman’s living. If you want to fund her yourself, you’re more than welcome to. Keep my taxes away from her.

      • @Pautwas

        So who do you think is spreading REAL UNBIASED NEWS?.. ABS-CBN? INQUIRER?! RAPPLER?!!!

        Mocha was appointed only as an assistant w/c is based on her loyalty and her social media following…

        If not her then WHO do you think is more desserving for that position?!.. Sino gusto mo iappoint ng Administration?
        Si Doris Bigornia? Raisa Robles?! Maria Ressa?!!
        😀

  13. Sa totoo lang mas bet ko si Rachel Peters pero si Mariel talaga ang bagay sa Miss Universe. MUO is an american brand and we all know how DU30 hates America and we all know how Mariel is so against DU30 administration. Mas bet ng MUO ang merong backstory. And Mariel’s story would be loved by the liberty of the Americans. They want someone who fights and pro-democracy! Si Rachel naman bagay na bagay sa Miss International, sure win na sana si Rachel sa MIO because she is very flawless in mentality pang Japanese ang appeal nya.

    • Ugh no. Regardless of political beliefs, I don’t want politics to be a factor in how someone does in a pageant. We already see this with Miss universe Kenya who could have placed much higher.

      • Kasi nga di sya naging opinionated sa sagot nya kaya waley si Kenya!!! Kung si Mariel sumagot nun sasagasaan nya talaga si Donald Trump sa racist policy nya.

      • @baklah while that is true ( because she is good at speaking) it is still the answer that the organization wants; hence, political pandering which is tasteless and divides people, going against what an international pageant is. The only reason Kenya flopped was mostly due to her stance with Trump. She has no problem with trump, which did not go well with Miss U who was leaning left politically and was jumping the hate trump bandwagon in order to gain relevancy. While I agree with some of his advocacies, I personally hate trump, I hate his racism, incompetence and his presence which really brought the ugliness of many racist white Americans (aka Charlottesville). Nonetheless, at that time Trump represented the political ideologies of the republican party; and for that to be a deciding factor for a placement or a win is tasteless and too unfair. A loose parallel is as if asking a Muslim candidate from a strict Muslim country a very compromising question (like a question about being friends with Israel) when it’s quite obvious that their religion is conservative and dictatorial as well. A political question is based on the manner of agreeing or disagreeing andthat is just unfair. That is why cordoves didn’t win the crown and now we’re stuck with the indo who during her reign is more of a shallow marie Antoinette aristocrat than the ideologies she advocated for in her q and a. Also in regards to her expressing her hatred for Du30 in an international stage, I find that also tasteless and corny. Regardless if you like the president or not; a majority of the Filipinos still vehemently support him in and outside the country and with justified reason be it financial or in regards to crime. It’s not like trump where people support him mostly since his ideologies benefit white Americans to the point of racist nationalism. Mariel preaching her beliefs will leave a bad taste to many if not most Filipinos, dividing a group that will be supporting her. It will be a pia wurtzbach question on the US army base but magnified a million. Sometimes it’s best to do it after. But hey, activism has always been eclectic. Also unrelated topic, but it’s quite funny how the opposition are currently insulting the president (understandably) when he was the best choice out of the elections. Besides him were politically correct but terribly corrupt/corruptible or incompetent people and an amazing woman on the verge of death( which she did succumb to).I don’t know what we will achieve by somehow impeaching him; we will get the useless vice president who can be easily puppeted and who went to new York for a holiday amidst a national crisis? Sorry but no. But that is as far as my political talk will go. Sorry for my long paragraph. My humble opinion. Feel free to disagree.

      • @myhumbleopinions
        alamin mo muna duties and responsibilties ng vp bago mo sabihing useless, ok?
        yung pagpunta ng vp sa new york pinuna mo pero yung pagpunta ni duterte sa russia kasama ang pnp chief at defense sec kahit alam nila na susugod maute sa marawi ok lang sa ‘yo? at nakalimutan mo na rin bang ilang araw na missing in action si duterte habang nakikipagbakbakan ang mga sundalo sa marawi?! kasalanan na naman ng mga deelawan?! lol

      • @sanlonghino showing duterte’s own mistakes does not take away that the vp is useless and will be a useless and weak leader if the president is impeach. But I will not discuss it any further; simply because this is a pageant blog. This is not a place for you to be generously bitter about the recent state of Filipino politics to the point of spamming the comment section. No matter how much you whine; you aren’t going to change things and if (God forbid) you do will only make it worse. The only thing you are doing by spamming and aggressively reflecting your own bitterness in the comments section is taking the attention away from Mariel. She has improved tremendously and Norman has proudly shown her progress to give us a little hope since pageantry makes us smile, especially since after her controvery with radical supporters. Nonetheless, like a killjoy pseudo sjw, you go here spamming your unnecessary beliefs to take away the spotlight from her; and for that, you are a c*nt- and that’s not an opinion.

      • Sorry bes ang haba ng reply mo, di ako nagbabasa ng ganoon kahabang liham. Kaya waley ako mareply jan. Buti anjan si bespren at matiyaga talaga magbasa ng iyong liham. Daig nya pa si Ate Charo.

      • @Lyn “you “word salad” was incoherent”- before you point out my writing, I suggest you look at yours as well. Nothing is worse than a hypocrite. Also who gives a sh*t. This is a public blog; not university.

      • @ Jo…..What an idiotic post. Character assassination at best. Sad!!

        @ Myhumble…You “word salad” was incoherent. Pathetic!

  14. Hello😗

  15. Sa totoo lang i have always been supportive to any girls sa international pageants nila kasi sila ang nagdadala ng pangalan ng bansa ko… 1st time ko lang na hindi ako naging supportive is kay Imelda last year… and Mariel broke that record na mas worse pa kay Imelda. Sayang talaga sya…

    • Porke di lang nila bet si DU30 ganyan ka na!!!! Jusko mahiya ka nga!!!! Hayaan mo sila sa opinyon nila!!! At the end of the day, si DU30 paren ang nakaupo!!! Normal sa pulitika ang may pagkakaiba ng opinyon at paniniwala.

    • pero supportive ka kay duterte na palamura, nag-eencourage na mang-rape at pumatay? para sa iyo UNQUEENLY si mariel, si duterte ba UNPRESIDENTIABLE?

  16. Mariel was born to lose Miss International. parang pinangangatawanan na niyang talunan talaga siya dahil siguro nabasa niya ang fearless psychic kaya nagwala na ng todo. She is dividing her people. She’s not a good spokesperson of Miss International brand baka maging pasaway pa itong babaitang to at masira pa reputasyon natin sa MIO pag nanalo ito.. pasaway siya. Bakit pa sya naging beauty queen.. sana lumaban na lang siya sa barangay election muna. susme

  17. Here comes Mga dutertards. Leave the girl alone. She has the backbone that other beauty queens do not have. Galit yung mga mokong Kung masaling yung president nilang ewan. Parang dahon ng makahiya pag China na pag uusapan. The downfall of the Philippines.

      • Isa pa to. Bat ako mahuhurt? Pakialam ko kay Duterte, sya ba sasali sa Miss International? Ang hina nyo talagang umintindi. Pilit nyo kasi syang kinakabit dito e di naman sya ang issue, napaghahalata tuloy kayo. Paulit-ulit na lang mga BUANG!

  18. Napacheck tuloy ako sa tweet nya….
    Grabe sya…

    A real beauty queen seeks to unite not to divide!

  19. B2BACKSTAGE yan. She might be beautiful but so are the rest of the candidates. Her unqueenly behaviour in the last few months and recent tweet scandal will not be left unnoticed by MIO.

  21. I like you Mariel coz you’re gon’na ba representing the country. But for God’s sake and for your own good pwede ba umayos ka sa pagpopost or tweet sa social media. Mygad you are so negative and unqueenly, as if you’re not gon’na be representing the Philippines. Just think, sa lahat ng BBP queens, ikaw lang ang ganyan. Anyway, I wish you all the luck.

  22. Go for. Back to back Mariel! Rewrite Miss international history ! Nothing is impossible if you work hard and believe that yes you can!

    • U haven’t seen MU 2017 yet and u r already with a foregone conclusion abt Rachel Peters. I can’t wait to see her slap u in the face with her MU 2017 crown.

      • We all know your judgement is flawed Fabian. Mister Dindi for MU. LOLOL It’s nice to see that norms has blind followers. Get your eyes checked girl

    • Well based solely on these pics alone you may have a valid argument Venus Rah but if we are to judge during BBP (from preliminary activities up to the finals), there is no doubt that Rachel is way above Mariel in all aspects. I still have faith in Rachel to do well at Miss Universe. Mariel is of MI calibre IMO
