  1. Talagang sobrang kinabahan ako sa Miss World -Philippines. Akala ko talaga matatalo pa ni Cynthia Thomalla si Laura Lehmann. Kaya naman nung natawag na si Cynthia at Wynwyn for the minor titles, napaiyak talaga ako sa tuwa. Feel ko isa sa bet ni tandang Hulya sa Top 15 si Laura. Bahala na ang tadhana kay Laura basta ang mahalaga masaya ako for her.

  2. Screening palang sabi ko na COPY and PASTE mga sis na magsabi na “Congratulations Laura Lehmann for winning MWP”

    Dami pa nag downvote sa comment ko kasi dami daw front runners? pwede ba MWP is still is the #easiest Philippine Pageant to predict!

    First time in HISTORY na ang magrerepresent sa PHILIPPINES sa Miss Earth, Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International at mga MINOR crowns ay galing BINIBINING PILIPINAS. Period.

    #AllTeaNoShade

    • Agree! Nagparamdam pa lang si Queen Lau na sasali siya sa Miss World, talagang ipinusta ko lahat ang bets ko sa kanya kahit sino pa ang makalaban niya.

    • I agree, jackiey12. She’s got it all.
      I think she will do well as MW if Julia gives her the crown . She’s very artculate and intellectually mature for her age.

  3. Congrats Laura ! I’m hoping for the best and expecting the worst in Sanya. And also to Wyn Wyn for HispanoAmerica. Can Cynthia give up her title and join Bb Pilipinas? She is so Miss International to me. Those doll-like features will be a hit in Japan.

  4. Really😶
    Di ako naniniwalang superyaman c tita Arnold Vegaon 😋
    Kung talagang may golden cash cya ay solohin nyang iisponsor ang Miss world 2018 sa Pinas.
    Gayahin nya ang impaktitang
    mayaman na c Liliana ng Indonesia para lagi rin tayong may placement sa top 5😗
    Look at miss chikwa. May 2 miss world kaagad halos magkasunod pweee😤
    Beauty is politics period😄
    Tingnan mo ang Indonesia na mukhang mga maligno ang representative pero umaarangkada sa top 15 hihihi dahil sa politika Di ba 😋wiz charette yan, may pagkacharot nga lng hihihi

    • ***Beauty pageant is politics***
      Parang sa barangay beauty pageant lang yan, kung yung candidate ng drug dealer ay sinupplyan nya c kapitan ng druga ng libre or super discount in exchange na panalunin ang kanyang kandidata kaya nganga nlang ang mga kalaban or sa comelec na nilapitan ng mga kandidatong senador, VP, President in exchange of $ ay alams na mga vahks kung sino ang wagi hihihi

  5. Dapat appointed na lang ang ipadala sa MW. Huwag na dumaan sa contest ang magrepresent sa PH. It’s big waste of time, money, and effort. Magfocus na lang tayo sa MU instead. Nawalan na ako ng respeto sa MW.

  6. mejo nawala yung freshness at aura ni laura from the last time na sumali sya sa bbp…though she really is articulate

  7. My Personal Prediction for Miss World PH 2017

    Miss World PH : Wyn Marquez
    1st Princess: Cynthia Thomalla
    2nd Princess: Zara Carbonell

    Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas: Laura Lehmann
    Miss Multinational PH : Janela Cuaton
    Miss Eco PH : Jona Sweett

  8. i can see Laura and Wyn2 as the last 2 women standing. Nonetheless, I wish all the girls the best of luck. After last year’s MW fiasco, I’m not that keen on following this year’s pageant. MWO needs to redeem itself to gain its credibility back. Again, good luck ladies 🙂

  9. The bar has been set by Catriona making this year batch as a weak one. But in fairness to the new owner spending that amount of money to bring the whole group of Miss World is something. Unfortunately this will not alleviate the fact that there was a travesty happened in Washington DC. Again The judges knew that the final question has no bearing at all . It all boils down to Julia’s pick.

    • Yuh! Welcome to the 2017 Mess World Philippines! The pageant that will choose our rep to the 2017 Mess World Julia Morley Cooking Show!!!

  10. Good luck sa lahat ng candidates, kahit major o minor crown pa yan, international pageant p din sasalihan mo. Cross over ka na lang din pag may time.

  11. My bet would be LaurA.
    Unfortunately the current set judges will seem to favor Wynwyn … to which I have no opposition . I’m not sure she can win our next MW.. although her great dance and comm skills may win the judges over.
    Sill no to Janela or Cynthia for MWP.

    • @fabian Im all for Laura ! I like wyn to be a titlist holder but not mwp. Im not liking Cynthias unang hirit interview

  12. Ay naku buhay Pinoy nga naman magsitigil nga kayo na kabaliwan ninyo. Hindi naman lahat may patimpalak sa ibang bansa ay lagi na lang Pilipinas na ang mananalo. Ano naman kaya sasabihin kung hindi na naman masuwerte ang ating kandidata ngayon taon. Sa totoo lang kung sino man ang mananalo ngayon sa Miss World Philippines 2017, mahirap pantayan ang nagawa ni Catriona Gray.

    • Ivan, kung totoo man yan sigurado ang pipiliin nila ay yung hindi top caliber para waley tayo sa Miss World.

  13. Filipino beauty pageant fans have not given much bite on the coming of Ms. Julia Morley and her Miss World 2016 and the latter’s court to the country. This is due to last year’s mess on the pageantry that brought a lot of disappointments to Filipinos who rallied behind Catriona Gray on her bid in Miss World. Miss World Organization has to win our trust back as they realized how big the fan base of beauty pageants here in the Philippines is. Thus, I may not wonder if we place higher in the forthcoming Miss World 2017 regardless of whether Wynwyn or Laura will represent us.

    By the way, good luck to the ladies on tomorrow nigh’s coronation.

    • I second in motion!

      Hindi lang higher placement ha? I demand a back to back! Nagawa niya dun sa mga “Pana” why not to us! Hindi latak ang pinapadala natin sa kanya ha.

      • Mare, not naman back-to-back. Hihihi! That only means a runner-up placement will be in the bag for our Miss World 2017 representative. Anyway, whoever our bet will be, sana her mentors would transform her into becoming a super stunning beauty. Laura is pretty, pero konting wow factor pa sana. On the contrary, Wynwyn has X-factor but she is not super beauty. I only put my cards on these two because, basing the photos and the preliminaries, the two are well-prepared and correctly styled. Mwah!

    • O ANO NA ANA WINTERWONDERLAND, ASAN NA YONG NANAY MONG ABOGAGA AT PUSHER NA NAGPUPUSH SYO NA MAY I JOIN NG BEAUCON? AT ASAN NA YONG SINASABI MONG MALAKAS ANG KAPIT NYO SA NBI HA BAYOT?

      IPAGYABANG PA SA MADLA NA PINAGPIPILITANG SYANG SUMALI DAW NG BEAUCON NG MUDANG NYA AT MGA FRIENDS, INUTO LANG SYA NANIWALA NAMAN HAK HAK HAK

      AT TAKE NOTE HA, SUPER LAKAS DAW KAPIT NILANG MAG INA SA NBI AT IPAPATRACE DAW AKO HA HA HA HA HA SA DINAMI DAMI BA NAMAN NG PROBLEMA SA BANSA AKO PA AATUPAGIN NG NBI? BWA HAK HAK HA HAK

    • NAGMAGALING NA NAMAN ANG BUGOK NA ANA WINTERWONDERLAND.

      ANO NA ANA WINTER, ASAN NA YONG PINAGMAMAMALAKI NG PAMILYA MO NA MALAKAS ANG KAPIT NYO SA NBI? ASANNNNNNNNNNNNN NAAAAAAA!!!!! SAGOT!

      • Paulit-ulit na lang at walang meat ang statement mo. Can you respond to my comment in English? I know you can’t because of your low IQ. Hihihi! Takot ka ng mapuna ang spelling mo, ‘no? You fag is salot. Hihihi!

  14. Waste of freaking time. The new franchise holder really spent million of pesos just to invite All those past winners . Oh well waste of money. Instead you just donate it it to the poor z or those who needs medical assistance.

  15. Chelsea Manalo, Winwyn Marquez, Janela Joy Cuaton, Trizha Ocampo and Abellanosa
    I love these girls💙💫

  16. Adding insult to injury for bringing the sponsor it to win it girls.

    Totoo bang nilangaw ang presscon ng MW at hininto ng rappler sa pagco-cover dahil sa daming hate emoticons?

      • i dont think mga sore losers mga pinoy fans, they just think na hindi tama ang nangyari last year. i think they accepted PR’s win but not the placement of indonesia na talaga namang kahit Top 20 di kakayanin. Ilang beses naman tayong natalo pero accepted naman pero kung harap-harapan naman ang lutuan aba.. nagpapaloko ba kayo? sige na kung ayaw mo kay Cat, pero kahit hindi na si Cat, u think Natalie really deserved her spot? Don’t tell me coz of her BWAP na based on Miss Brazil wala naman talagang official judges kung baga kung sino sino lang gusto ni Mother Julie.

      • Yes I do think Natalie deserves her spot. She was vibrant, witty and spontaneous during the finals as opposed to Catriona’s calculated and contrived moves (robotic actually) and rehearsed answer. Sorry I know it is a hard pill to swallow but it’s rhe truth. Pero sige, she has chance to prove me wrong sa BBP but I doubt that she will bag the MUP crown should she decide to join BB. She is way overrated and I understand that considering the flawed standard of beauty amongst pinoys.. maputi equals maganda kaya Philippines has the world’s biggest consumption of whitening products.

      • Jeremi, Natalie or Natasha? Natasha is not vibrant, witty and spontaneous at all, sorry to say. Tingnan mo ulit yung video, napaka-stiff at dry nyang tingnan kasi halatang nininerbiyos siya. Is that your definition of vibrant? Witty and spontaneous? She was evidently tentative of her answer which led her to be so disorganized and incoherent kaya hindi siya talaga spontaneous. I can’t believe you said that Catriona’s answer was rehearsed. It it was rehearsed, she wouldn’t have gotten nervous after answering the question, as clearly shown in the video. It probably sounds rehearsed because they were only given so short a time to answer the question and yet Catriona was so eloquent. Her response was indeed very witty, intelligent, fluid, organized and spontaneous, which we can seldom hear in beauty pageants kasi only a few is truly blessed with a gift of gab.

      • You Jeremi really is one pathetic b*tch. This is not being sore losers. This is rising up against a clear injustice and travesty. Choose to play the dirty game but wag mong idamay ang marunong manindigan.

      • @jeremi,

        hindi vibrant si Natasha, nagmukha siyang mang-mang lalo na sa Q&A na di makasagot na parang iiyak na siya. kundi mo lang alam.. pagka panalo ni Cat, ang mga indo threatened na threatened na alam nilang si Cat ang mananalo at accepted naman nila na si Cat ang mananalo dahil whole package naman talaga si Cat, Ngayon lang yan nag iinarte ang mga indon dahil nag 2nd runner up sila through sponsor it to place it

      • mismong si natasha manuela nagulat nga nung tinawag syang 2nd runner up…alam nyang di sya kagandahan at ligwak sagot nya tapos naungusan pa nya si catriona

      • Tama ka P.O. kc c natasha ang tunay na mukhang down syndromes beauty hihihi
        Tapos ang impaktang liliana to the rescue na dahil sa BWaP kaya nanalo heller👹😈😄😁😋

    • @ Padede Boy : Good afternoon/morning/evening.

      I caught the first few minutes and saw no hate emoticons. They must have come later. I must have missed them. So embarrassing to Mrs. Vegafria and Besana. 😦

      Totoong mahirap matanggap at maunawa ang mga naganap noong nakaraang taon. Kasalanan ng MW organization, kung mayroon mang naganap na lutuan.

      But at the same time, I am unsure our (some of us) hostility accomplishes/fixes/solves anything.

      I wonder if those haters could have behaved more prudently. It would have sufficed to just not tune in.

      Two days ago, the World marked the death anniversary of Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales. The conspiracy theories resurfaced. Even Katherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, was not spared the grilling. Does it really do any good to keep opening wounds?

      • I think some people need to vent out and needed to be heard regarding their frustrations and injustice. I mean, do we really need to support a pageant na halata namang naloko tayo? of course not right? and also, if we don’t need to support we can just go on our separate ways without going to Miss World page and rant again and again. But then, it’s still fresh to the pinoys and im sure, sooner or later, it’ll die down together how Miss World it is for the pinoys. I mean, we dont really know much about Miss World til Ruffa Guttierez placed 2nd runner up in the 90s right? it’s bcoz of BBPilipinas, it re-introduced it to the public. MW facebook looks very affected by the bad comments that they had to closed down reply button box.

      • Yeah and those hateful comments are all coming from pinoys. You must be really so proud of those comments Padede Boy. Cheers bravo to you then! Shame

    • At isa pa, kung walang magrereklamo eh di continue parin ang pang mamagic ni Mother Julie… kaya nga affected sya masyado sa naging reaction ng mga pinoy last MW2016 kaya todo ang overhaul niya ng fasttracks niya at super kiss-ass siya ngayon sa mga pinoy fans…

  17. Janela Joy Cuaton reminds me so much of Badjao Girl Rita Gabiola. Hope Janela improves her communication skills and confidence. I love the fact that she has the heart to serve BUT, perhaps 1-2 more years and she’ll be good to go—for a minor crown. She doesnt have the commanding presence yet when she opens her mouth like any national beauty titlist. What I like about her tho, is that she has a strong fan base which during pageant season can really boost a candidate’s morale. Laura Lehman has lost her spark despite being the initial favorite, not even placing on the beach body competition. Cynthia is slowly peaking on a precision based tactic and might win the MWP crown upsetting Lehman. Jona Sweett while pretty, needs to improve her wit and comm skills tremendously as evident on some interview vids (see ms earth Q&A Jona Sweett). Give Jona 1-2 more years and she can try BBP and snatch the MI crown. Wynwyn, i looooove the persistence, grit and passion. Had she been 2-3 inches more taller, i would vote for her all the way. Wonder if her answer during BBP was scripted or not, tho? Anyway, whoever wins the MWP will surely make it to top5 or even the crown as Lola Hulya is trying to make up for the fiasco last year. Peace everyone.

  18. walang masyadong kinang ang mga kandidata. kahit sino manalo siguradong luz valdez sa international pageant

  19. Yaman talaga ni Lola Julia at may excess baggage na mga continental Queens 😄
    Pero nagngingitngit parin sa galit ang mga bitter like Lola angel reyes dahil para sa kanya ay messworld pa rin ang Miss World hihiji
    Puwes magtiis silang panoorin c madam Julia 🤗😄😊

    • Bakulaw, si Arnold Vega-free-yah ang nag-sponsor sa tickets ng Miss World team para mag-visit sa Pay-lee-peens! Mayaman si mawma Arnold!! “she”(preferred pronoun niya) can buy you, your parents, and every slave pinoys with huh money. Cash at di credit! Ganern! Cherert! 🤗😆😊


      https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.js

    • bong700, pinapaingit niya ba si Catriona kaya daladala pa niya ang mga continental queens nya? It’s plainly rubbing the salt into the wound.

      • Oiii, wyn2 ikaw ba yan. ..cherette 😋
        Sabi ni lola Julia, pinakababang position na ibigay nya sa philippines ngayong taon ay ang Miss Asian continent kaya puedeng nasa top 5 pa rin ang pinas 😄🤗😚
        Kaya sweet grapes tayo dapat kay lola julieta ☺

      • bong700, pag-iibigay pa ni Julia Morley ang Queen of Asia o kaya ang top 5 placement sa Pinas, lalong magiging obvious talaga na predetermined, fixed at cooking show ang Miss World.

    • bong700, Julia and her court are here to show that they are interested in the Philippines. But sorry to say Ms. Morley, it’s quite evident that the feelings aren’t mutual anymore. We can never really fix the broken glass and mend the fences. Restoring amicable relationships (between people, countries, etc.) that have become undesirably antagonistic is now beyond possibility.

      • Basta, happy ako kung panalunin ni madam Julia c wyn2 hihihi.
        Mukhang c wyn2 ang itinuro ni lola Julia kay Bigaong vegafria at napasmile na lng ang laging wet ang flower na c besana kc A&Q nman c wyn2 kaya walang problema 😄cherette

    • bong700, you’re a funny, sometimes nonsense commenter but not an accurate forecaster. Paging Dindi Pajares, where are you now? LOL!

  20. My prediction:
    Miss World Philippines – Laura Victoria Lehmann
    Reina Hispanofilipinas – Gabriela Ortega
    Miss Eco Philippines- Teresita Senn Maquez
    Miss Multinational Philippines – Janela Joy Cuaton
    1st Runner Up – Cynthia Thomalla
    2nd Runner Up – Jona Sweett
    Top 10
    Chelsea Manalo
    Glysa Perez
    Zara Carbonel
    Shiela Marie Reyes

  21. Great list of predictions Tito Norrman

    Miss world Ph = Cynthia. She fits the bill. Beautiful face & I don’t mind that she has to improve her diction. We sent catriona beauty&brains & still did not win , its politics in mess world.

    Miss HispanoA PH = Gabriela. Don’t underestimate this girl,she has what it takes she is smart&articulate stunning &fluent( which is of vast importance) in Spanish and when she hits the stage it’s on fire, she is only one who should be sent to hispanoA. Don’t worry about the figure in 2 months she can snatch back just before flying off to hispaniA . She’s my sentimental favorite this girl has good heart

    Other front runners
    Wyn wyn. I’m not a fan but I have to give it to this girl
    She has improved on every level and her PR machine is working overtime
    Laura . Is the most prepared, and probably the one to beat, if she goes she will do well at miss world
    Darkhorse. Sweet I’ve started to notice this girl she has come out of nowhere and seems like she’s in it to win it

  22. Not a fan of Lehman but I wouldn’t mind if she wins. After last year’s MW finals, I think sending someone who is a bit under-hyped would be a good idea so we don’t get into the game of high expectations again.

  23. Miss World 2016 Stephanie Del Valle and her court with Julia Morley and Chief Zwelivelile Mandelsizwe Mandela at the on going Welcome prescon.

    • So, ano gusto ipahiwatig ni Tandang Hulya at karay-karay niya pa yung 2 runner up sa Pinas na di naman niya ginawa sa ibang bansa binisita nila?

    • Naiirita ako sa mga eksenang ito. Mahirap talaga pag wala nang trust. Naks. Parang relationship. Lol

      #notomessworld

  24. Prediction lang po…

    Miss World Philippines – Laura Victoria Lehmann (1st Filipino-Jewish girl to represent the country)

    Reina Hispanofilipinas – Chelsea Manalo (1st Filipino-african woman to represent the country)

    Miss Eco Philippines- Teresita Senn Maquez

    Miss Multinational Philippines – Janela Joy Cuaton

    1st Runner Up – Cynthia Thomalla

    2nd Runner Up – Jona Sweett

  25. The battle for the TOP crown will only be between LAURA and WYNWYN. Mark that. Kapag wala sa dalawang ito ang nanalo, sasagutin ko na yung babaeng nirereto sa akin ni mudra.

  26. My top 5 is the same… I vote for Lehman although I wonder if I would like her to try for Bb Pilipinas again. I am not sure how old she is but if she wins MWP, I hope she tries again for Bb.

    Cynthia Thomalia may be better for Bb Pilipinas , I am not sure though of speaking skills.

    WynWyn , I think she must win something here. It might up her chances if she decides to go for another Bb Pilipinas.

    Cuaton & Swett , they can battle it out for the lesser crowns with Ortega. I don’t think any of these three will go far in Bb Pilipinas should they decide to give it a try.

  27. 1.Laura is my mwp 2017.
    2.Rose Flores is a handsome beauty. I do hope she wins a crown Eco or Multinational
    3. Ms Jona Swett demeanor and focus on her bwap even though Im not that convinced w her beauty. Eco or Multinational
    4.Ortega for Hispanico

    princess wyn and tomalla

  28. Oh please, with all due respect to the blogger. Just like in all previous MWP. Obvious na sino mananalo. Its betwen Laurah and Wynwyn. The other names will fall into the minor crowns, kung papalarin sila. Let us not forget, the pageant in called Miss World Philippines after all, not Miss World Philippines Multinational Reina Hispanoamerica Eco 2017 #AllTeaNoShade

  29. Sash Factor posted an article on Ms. Ortega’s possible contract breach with BPCI. Go there and read, po. If so and she opts to back out, send… Ms. Lehmann, please. As Mr. Tinio said, elegant and sophisticated. But style her to look Asian/Filipina. The Latin American community expects this. The whole “Spanish mestiza” thing means little to them.

    Ms. Lubag (Number 10) must be “Princess-ified”. I LOVE the STRONG Chinese look! (Btw, tonight is the Finals of Miss Chinatown 2017? Will Ms. MGI 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordovez SPEECH again? )

    • That’s because your chinese hence you have to say you ‘love’ mongoloid looks Fabian at este Dexco at este MU2011,12,13,24,15,16 at este Andrew pala. Sorry dahil male male ako. You can’t google translate that so you can ask your compatriot Layla.

      Pero I know kunwari gusto mo si Ms Lubag pero based on current Chinese beauty standards such as angelababy and Gulnezar, oriental looks is not favoured even in China.

      • @mazz ang iniisip ng iba Chinese likes asian look . The Chinese prefer mestiza looking

      • @ Mazza94 and @ jackiey12 : Good afternoon/morning/evening.

        I just like Ms. Lubag’s look. I do not expect any titles for her. Just Second Princess locally. Nothing more.

        Either Misses. Cynthia Thomalla or Jona Sweet for the Sanya campaign is OK.

        And by that reasoning therefore, both China and Indonesia (Ms. Achintya Nielsen is STILL Asian, after all, though halfie) will NOT win! Yyyaaayyyyy! Palina Popova of Russia will get the Blue Crown.

        Magdalena Bienkowscka of Poland will be First Princess.

        And Philippines will be Second Princess.

        Domo arigatou gozaimashita.

  30. Tito norman, wala po ba talaga live streaming same time ng pageant? haysss. mas masarap manood same time kaysa delayed telecast. Hinde ako makakapanood sa TV dahil iba ang papanoorin d2 sa house. Kung may app lang ang GMA for live streaming ng mga shows like abscbn ung i want tv. ok pa siguro. Pero waley so nganga. dapat pala sa abs cbn nalang sila. Anyway! This is my list
    MW – Laura Lehman(Pang MW naman talaga medyo may kulang lang which is kaya naman makuha.
    RH- Gabriela (Perfect choice for this title, i hope mapaganda nila ng husto ang katawan nya and her pasarela)
    Multinational- Cynthia (Shes a multinational, Filipina na german pa(Correct me if wrong sa german. Charette)
    Eco – Wynwyn ( sabi nga nila kapag itabi mo sa mga matatangkad eh lalamunin pa rin sya, So since next year pa ang Miss Eco so mahabang prepation for her is very very good. Baka tumangkad pa sya or kung hinde man at least ma train ng husto para sa bonggang performance na lalamon sa mga matatangkad na mga weak sa performance.
    2nd princess Jona sweet
    1st princess – Janela Cuaton
    But i think Wynwyn will get the MWP crown and Laura will be send in RH so if Gabriela will not make it in the semis alam na kung sino ang ilalagay sa RH coz dalawa lang sila marunong mag spanish.

  31. Great selection Norman. I would replace the Chinese looking/mongoloid Ms Lubag with Ms Rose Flores however. Besides being unattractive, there is something peculiar and disturbing in Ms Lubag’s look – the small slanted eyes with no eye lashes coupled with flat wide face so typical of orientals reminds one of an Alien or insect. I don’t mean to sound harsh but that is the vibe their looks give off. We already have Ms Ibasco we dont need another one of them. This is Philippines – a Malay island country in Southeast Asia not China.

  32. Impressive list of delegates from 44 municipalities and 9 cities of CEBU for the title of Binibining CEBU 2017. WOW!!!!
