  1. She did not make the winners circle of BBP2015 because she represented Davao even if she was a former BBP runner-up… Why would they let the city she represents be highlighted when Don Jorge Araneta’s nephew Mar Roxas would be running against Mayor Du30 of Davao City. It also doesn’t help that she is a member of the Royal house of Sulu which is clearly in alliance & distantly related with the Politicians of Mindanao who oppose the Liberal Party.

  2. i like her beauty too. Gandang ganda ako sa kanya during bbp 2015 and with that photo above i still admire her beauty. hope she joins next year again if age qualified pa sya. im happy that the org noticed her. pero yung pag appoint sa kanya happy din kaya lang why ngayon lang and not last year? plus this will become controversial sa other countries even if they have reasons how they choose her. sana d nya tinanggap. since unfair sa ibang kandidata at unfair din sa last queen 2015. Pero kung inabisuhan sila ng org na ganito ganire ang gagawin nila para piliin kung sino ang iappoint eh ok pa siguro pero ung now lang at biglaan na may na appoint na agad eh ma kukwestiyon talga. Pero she have rights din naman to accept or not. Dagdag suntento na din for her. teka tito norman may money prize naman kaya? baka isang buwan lang?

  3. NO PAGEANT? APPOINTED? TAGA KORONA LANG ANG MAGIGING PAPEL NYA? THE 2015 WINNER CAN DO THAT, WHY NOT LET HER COMPETE THIS YEAR INSTEAD OF BEING APPOINTED PARA WALANG CONTROVERSY. BAKA MAGREKLAMO DIN IBANG COUNTRIES NA NAGPADALA DIN NAMAN NG MGA CANDIDATES NILA LAST YEAR.wHAT IS A CROWN KUNG DI MO NAMAN ITO PINAGPAGURAN, IBA YONG ME LABANAN HINI YANG APPOINT APPOINT NA YAN. rEMEMBER WHEN EVANGELINE PASCUAL WAS OFFERED THE MISS WORLD TITLE DAHIL SA NADETHRONE YOUNG POKPOKITA NA IPINANALO NI MORLEY, SHE GRACIOUSLY REFUSE IT OUT OF DELICADEZA.

  4. This is illustrative of the point I have been making all along in my replies to previous blogs: that global pageantry organisations simply cannot ignore the world’s largest pool of pageant followers. Their survival requires being on the radar of the world’s largest market base of pageantry– the millions of Filipino pageant freaks worldwide who are glued to the social media everyday.

    Marketing-wise, this is a smart business decision of the organisers. This decision is all the more savvy because they picked someone from the country not only with the world’s largest demand for pageantry offerings, but with the world’s largest supply of holistic beauties– beautiful physique, high intellect, admirable social demeanour, and deep social compassion. Yes, the Philippines is the world’s beauty powerhouse because it shifted the world’s paradigm of beauty from simply physical dimension to include cerebral, character and social advocacy.

    Congratulations, Toni. You deserve it. The entire Philippines deserve it.

    • Filipina beauty was recognised in pageantry loooooong before tha advent of social media and political correctness.

      In the time when physical beauty, grace and charm was paramount Filipinas stamped their presence in the 60s, 70s and early 80s. It was even more singular as they were the only non western/european descent country to ever be a force in beauty pageants. This was the case whether the pageant was held in any country.

      It was only in the advent of plastic surgery being common, business focus, and emphasis on looking modelesque/sexually such as in the 90s and trump era that we relatively stagnated.

      If anything, other countries are much larger markets and business wise pageants would do well to widen the winners circle. Yet against all odds Filipinas dominate.

      It’s all about their unique beauty, their preparedness and that combination of sweetness and sensuality that makes them win. Nothing to do with social media, money, or strategic presence. Otherwise India, china, Mexico, not to mention the Arab world and Latin America who are all pageant enthusiasts. If only they will win, interest from their country will grow exponentially.

      However, they have to beauty that can win first. And no amount of surgery, photoshop, mix, propaganda, bribery/politicking and excuses will help on that. Not when they compete with a Miss Philippines

    • @Mazza94, I agree with your opinion that indeed Filipina beauties are just exquisite to deserve wins in worldwide pageantry. But I hope you will agree with me that the current string of successes of our candidates in international beauty contests is due to the differential advantage we hold over all other countries. The differential advantage of the Philippines is having hordes of pageant freaks scattered worldwide that are glued to the social media everyday. Filipinos are the world’s top social media users, as the Philippines is the undisputed texting capital of the world. It is a matter of record that in every MU finals held in recent memory, rowdy Filipino pageant enthusiasts fill the arena to the rafters. And who frequents most international pageant websites? This is not surprising as beauty pageantry is deep-rooted in our culture and history: revolutions come and go but beauty pageants remain a national pastime! We have to admit that this is a marketing fact that every global pageantry business cannot simply ignore nowadays.

      This is just the demand side. The supply side is the emergence of “beauty camps” that produce holistic beauties– beautiful physique, beautiful minds, beautiful social demeanour– from the literal goldmine of beautiful women across the archipelago. This is a competitive advantage other countries cannot simply duplicate. If Filipinos were a force to reckon with in the past, we all the more have become formidable contenders lately. This is a supply fact that every global pageantry business acknowledges nowadays.

      I believe that as long as the Philippines will continue to dominate the demand and supply of pageantry “fodder”, I think we will always be the world’s “beauty powerhouse”.

      • There is no Supply and demand link that translates to any material/impact revenue from Filipino fans or any other fans to pageants owned and held outside of their respective countries outside of franchise fees which are one off payment yearly.

        Advertising revenue and social media impact are largely limited within their country of origin such is the case for Miss Universe. The org does not get advertising revenue as it is a delayed telecast and only rights to show are sold.

        So Filipinas dominate in the past and in the present due to their unique beauty qualities. They don’t win because of market considerations, mixture, plastic surgery, social media buzz, preparation, photoshop, propaganda/politicking, bribery/favouritism, luck, strategic move, world visibility, importance, and flavour of the month bias. If all these excuses were true then most Latin American, European, Oriental, subcontinent, middle eastern, even African and not to mention our neighbors would’ve been winning/dominating. The fact is they DON’T.

        So stop “inadvertently” peddling same old tired theories which are nothing but thinly veiled excuses masking jealousy and bitterness.

        Filipinas win because they were the best that night of the competition and they were the most beautiful plus. Give credit where credits due.

  5. Woohoo!!!! Go Toni! I thought you were robbed when you did not get in as a semifinalist at least. Your a true blue Pinay beauty from native tribe of Badjaos

    Her type of beauty is popular is our neighbors Malaysia and Indonesia as she looks like their typical ideal Malay Muslim princess. Same with Shamcey, Ariella, Janson, Melanie, Pilar, Sara Jane, etc. True beauty of Southeast Asia

    Congratulations and mabuhay to all Filipinos. All natural Filipina beauty conquering without even trying. This sets the positive tone we need for this year’s pageant season.

  6. ano b yan…dapat nuon pa sya inappoint hindi yung just for the sake of passing the crown…the 2015 winner can do that since hindi nman nya naipasa crown nya nung 2016…pero infairness maganda yung alyessa ha

  7. wow! that’s brilliant, though
    she made such an impact based just on her photos
    that she was proclaimed the winner
    toni, has an international crown on her resume
    maybe a steeping stone for another bigger one

    congratulations all the same!

  8. Wag na kayong nega… binigyan na ng korona iyong tao… panalo na siya.. dagdag korona din iyon.. at least, now pwede na siyang lumaban sa mas higher level competition.

  9. CORRECTION NORMAN!!!!
    Nelda Ibe is Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2017
    not Binibining Pilipinas Globe International 2017

    Dagdag ko lang din ha. Mas thumbs up ako sa THE MISS GLOBE kesa sa MISS GLOBE INTERNATIONAL. Tingnan mo naman nag appoint pa sila para langagturn over. Mga walang alam!!!

  10. Sana binigyan na lang sya ng chance na lumaban this year instead of appointing her as last year’s ‘winner’. Anong petsa na? Bakit ngayon lang kung nais pala nilang magappoint na lang because of the war in Syria? May maaacomplish pa ba sya as ‘reigning queen’ kung ilang araw na lang, magturn over na agad ng crown? Hindi magandang pakinggan na inappoint lang sya to “hand over the crown to the next titleholder”. Walang taste. I’d rather compete, if i were Toni, than accept this nonsense appointment.

  11. wow, she really has the look of an international crown holder, pride of Pinas, another one !

    I hope Angelique de Leon and Mae Ramos get a chance as they age towards that ripe figure of 27.

    (I also remember Rose Misa and Diana Arevalo who deserved to have crowns, but too late now)
