  2. ITIGIL NA NGA KASI ANG MGA KABAKLAANG ITO!

    aNG BEAUTY CONTEST AY PARA SA MGA BABAE LAMANG AT BINABABAE, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS MALE BEAUTY PAGEANT (OH ENGLISH YON HA? NIRESEARCH KO PA!) AMBOT KUNG BAKIT KASI PINAGPIPIITAN PANG MAGKAROON NG MGA GANYAN GANYAN E PURO MGA PAMINTA RIN LANG NAMAN ANG MGA SUMASALI KUNDI MAN E MGA DESPERATE NA KUMAKAPIT SA MGA BAYOT IN THE HOPE NA MAGIGING TAARTITS KAYA KYEBER NA MAGPAKUPANG NG MAGPAKUPANG SA MGA BALYENANG MGA BAKLA MAKILALA LAMANG. AT ITO NAMANG MGA TALENT SCOUT, SUSMARYOSEP WAG NGANG BIGYAN NG MGA FALSE HOPE YANG MGA ANAK ANAKAN NYO BAKA IN THE END MADYUMBAG PA KAYO. AT SA MGA ORGANIZERS NAMAN, PAGTARONG MONG MGA BAYOTA MO HA? WALA NAMAN KAYONG RESOURCES AT SAPAT NA MARKETING SKILLS PARA MAGPAPAGEANT PAGEANT PA, ANO BANG IBANG BUSINESS NA LANG PAGTUONAN NYO NG PANSIN, BAT DI NYO I-TRY MORTUARY SERVICES WITH MASSAGE UPSTAIRS, AT DI YAN PAGEANT PAGEANT NA YAN NA WALA NAMAN KAYONG BUDGET, AT DI NYO NAMAN KAYANG IORGANIZE. AYAN TULOY KANDA UTANG UTANG KAYO NGAYON, ABONADO PA, SAKIT PA SA ULO, STRESS AT KAHIHIYAN NAPALA NYO!

    AND LASTY TO THE BLOGGER, MAGCONCENTRATE KA NA LANG SA PAGBLOBLOG HANE? GAYA NG DATI, YONG TIPONG BEAUTY PAGEANT LAMANG ANG PAKSA AT WALANG KINIKILINGAN AT WALANG PERSONALAN. MAGKABANGAYAN MAGKABILANG KAMPO IN THE END PROVES ONE THING, THAT WE ARE ALL PAGEANT FANS NO MATTER WHAT. WAG KA NA KASI SUMASAW PA SA MGA GANYAN GANYAN AT ME PAPOWERS POWERS A PANG NALALAMAN DYAN, KAYABANGAN NA YAN ATENG!

    ANYWAY, LET THAT BE A LESSON LEARNED (O ENGLISH ULI YON HA?)!

  3. Saan na ang credibility ng male pagentas sa Pinas? Kaloka!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sa mga male contestants naman kung wala naman kasi ibubuga hwag na pagpilitan

  4. “I promised him that I will scrutinize everything, and will do everything in my powers to get his ward a semifinal spot….”

    This part of the statement bothered me.

    • me too. cringe cringe. I hope this is not what Tito Norman really meant and that he just simply ran out of (appropriate) words because of what he was feeling

      • Simple lang. Kung may hokus pokus si norman hindi niya dadaanin sa text dahil ibidinsya yan.

    • And I thought mali lang ako ng pagkaintindi nung nabasa ko…good thing you pointed it out. It doesn’t make any difference kung may involved mang amount or wala, the fact na may ganyang kalakaran “secure a whatever spot,” is just not fair. At si Norman ang gagawa? Medyo napangiwi ako dun ng very light. Norman naman.

  5. Lahat ng pageants may mga issue na anik anik depende lang kung gagawan ng kulay o istorya ng mga taong feeling na inapi. Call it bitterness or whatever pero no one wins sa ganitong chismisan.

    Lessons learned sa lahat.

    Norman please refrain from entertaining your bashers.

    • I beg to differ. Not all who are trying to ferret out the truth are bashers. Some questions simply deserve to be addressed in the interest of fair play.

  6. Hindi po ako nanglalait but more than this petty controversy, mas naalarma ako sa guts ni Reggie to join with high hopes na sya ang mananalo sa isang male beauty pageant. Anong klaseng pangako ba ang inialok ng mga ‘handlers’ at ‘organizers’ sa mga contestants para makalimutan nilang beauty pageant ang kanilang sasalihan? Hindi ba uso ang screening sa patimpalak na ito? Opo, hindi sya pangit ngunit hindi rin naman exceptional ang kanyang physique, hitsura at tindig para umasang sya ang mananalo. I don’t blame Reggie though. I blame the handlers and organizers for giving contestants like Reggie false hopes. Lesson learned: Tumingin sa salamin at huwag magpapauto sa mga handlers na may masasamang balakin.

  7. Just like some of the readers I also don’t follow this pageant so forgive my questions of ignorance:

    1) What is the role of the blogger (Mr. Norman) in this pageant? Owner? Organizer? Invited blogger/Promoter?

    2) What organization is GCI and to whom does its erring Marketing Manager report to?

    3) In what capacity or role in the organization does the blogger have to “scrutinize everything and promise with all his powers to make the contestant land as semi-finalist”?

    4) The manager seems to believe that there is such a thing as “paid sponsorship”. Is there?

    While there is nothing wrong with any organization making money, or any owner having a say or influence over the results, the blogger seems less forthright in his narrative.

    World Peace.

    • JawsKuh, sila ba ang susunod sa yapak ni kian de los Santos 😄
      Eepal na naman cila alam nyo na lalo na c santasantita😋hihihi
      NO, yan lng masasabi ko sa mga yan😗
      Dios ko, bakit dumadami na ang mga galamay ng demonyo sa Pinas na pinamumunuhan ni acheng angelo reyes hijihi cherettte sabi ni ibong charerette 🤗

  8. anu ba yan…ang daming controversy ng GOTPH !!! hindi maayos sistema, considering na maliit na pageant lang to – candidates na nagpull out at mga nanalong di kuntento kaya nag back out, titles na hindi valid (grand international at national universe),issue ng credibility, at mga guests na nagcocomplain…good luck kung pano nyo aayusin yang image nyo…magsara na kayo

  9. That is why there is No credible male pageants in the Philippines, lahat may “pangako sa iyo…” Moments. #AllTeaAllShade

  10. Para namang kagwapuhan si candidate to cause a commotion!

    Yan ang importance ng “contract”. Karamihan sa mga “handler wanna be” laway Lang and puhunan! Basta male pageant asahan na Ang controversy! Diba Ginoong Pilipinas at Face of the year?

  11. Enebeyen!

    May point si handler ni Maguindanao.

    Hindi dapat nangyayari ang ganito sa pageant.

    Di ba ganyan din nangyari sa Mess World 2016 ang ND umupong judge.

    “Mahirap ibalik ang buong tiwala kapag ito ay nasira.”

    Sana lang makarecover ang male pageant na ito.

  12. Sa dinamidami nang kaganapan na hindi kanaisnais sa patimpalak ng Gentlemen of the Philippines. Sa tingin ko mararapat lang na ayusin ng mga organizers lahat ng mga problema bago sila magbigay ng paliwanag at habang may natitirang pagtitiwala ang mga kalahok sa mga organizers. Kawawang mga kalahok na dumanas ng hirap at puyat, pero ano ang kabayaran ng pagod nila. May mga nanalo nga pero binawi naman nila ang kanilang pinalunan na karangalan. May inimbita na bisita hindi pa nila sinunod ang kasunduan. Mayroon naman hindi sumali nanalo pa. Dapat pa bang pagkatiwalaan ang mga ganitong organizers, sorry Norman mahirap nang ibalik ang tiwala ng mga tao sa patimpalak na ito.

  13. From maguindanao, and the pictorial in traditional costume was taken in mati city davao oriental😄
    I miss Dahican and the pomelo in menzi farm which I guess owned by apo marcos 😋
    Hello davao, see u soon😗

  14. I am not following this pageant or any male pageants. Nevertheless, whatever the issue surrounding this pageant, I hope that everything will be water under the bridge now.

  15. Jusko bakla yan handler no???? Maliit na bagay seneseryoso!!! Buti pa ung ibang handler, maka chupa lang sa talent nila orayt na!!!!

  16. Much ado about nothing really.. I guess candidates should possess that level of maturity to handle their own affairs i.e. joining a pageant.
