  7. Thank you Reina Teresita. Your win came in at a perfect time. We need to be distracted from another Philippine win… How ironic. hihihi…

  8. nagbabasa basa ako ng mga comments sa fb about earth and reina hispanica hihihi
    jawsmio ang mga palengkera at tambay sa parlor na pinoy commenters ay kahiya basahin at kung bago ako sa paligsahan sa mga pekeng kagandahan ay mabobobobohan talaga ako sa mga pinoy idiots pero dahil sa nasanay na ako ay keri lng mga veckxzs at ienjoy ang mga comments dahil it’s part of pageantry.
    kapag wala ang mga palengkera at puro social climbers na lng karamihan ang natira ay boring na ang mundo ng pekeng kagandahan hihihhi

    • Oo nga beauty pageants lang ito. Magandang libangan. Pampalipas oras. None of my friends and family can relate to my fascination. LOL

    • ANO KAMO BONGOK700, NAGBOBOBOBOHAN KA? BOBO K TALAGA IDIOT! YANG NANAY MONG PUTA NA WALANG NAITURO SYO KUNDI ANG KALANDIAN ANG ASIKASUHIN MO AT WAG KA NANG MAGKUWARING MATALINO DAHIL ISTUPIDONG UGOK KA SA SA TUNAY NA BUHAY! KAININ MO NA LANG TAE NI KAREN DAHIL HANGANG TAE KA LANG!

  9. naku tama na yang pangit na kuda.
    ang daming pangit na nanalo compared sa runner up nila.
    masyado lang kayong nakasentro sa bakit pinas uli.
    mother earth ang pinag uusapan kaya yung may mas alam/utak ang manalo.
    maganda nga pero kulang sa dedekasyon at kaalaman ay waley pa rin.
    prepare hard next time mga losers.
    country of the year pa rin tayo dahil top 6 or winner c rachel sa mu.
    sobrang blessed na rin ang pinas kapag nagtop 10 sa mworld at minternational hihihi

      • Kung top 5 sya 4M, puedeng b2b na lng hihihi… magagalit na lalo ang GB nyan at allergic na silang magtabulate sa score ng pinas hihihi at may balak pa silang dayain ang computation ng pinas score just to bring us down… cherette lng

      • Magsasara na raw ang Global Beauties, mafbabalik nlng raw sila pag di na Philippines ang Powerhouse.

    • true. Yung iba sobra sa pag analyze at over think sa mga pangyayari. Nanalo na ang mga nanalo. Take at it is. In the end, hakot award tayo ng crowns…yehey !!!

    • Actually, nakalimutan na Namin Ang Miss Earth with Wynwyn’s win eh but napaalala mo ulit with this post. Grrr! Hahaha!

    • that reminds me of MU1999. Yun winner talo talaga sa facial beauty pero grabe, she gave the best answer to the final question kaya 1st runner-up lang si Miriam.

      • Yeah yun tipong dapat sa Top 10 pa lang si Botswana wala dapat at ayun talino kasi at nakachamba umabot sa Top 3. Na choke si Miriam sa final Q&A round kaya naungasan sya (and even Spain) who were both consistent 1-2 in Swimsuit and Evening Gown rounds… ganun tlaga ang life. You win some. You lose some. Some luck here and there.

      • BOTSWANA won in an AMERICAN-owned pageant in TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO for the FIRST time. #ForThePhilippinesInThePhilippinesByThePhilippines

  10. Beauty can only take you so far. Intelligence can take you further. Self-confidence can make you soar high. Detractors have nitpicked on Karen’s facial “flaws.” The judges did not see them. What they saw was self-confidence. The decision was unanimous and from where they were seated, I don’t think they would have seen her “imperfections” but her total
    package already. Sorry naysayers but there is no zoom in the actual pageant. The judges are seated from a distance and they only have seconds to lock-in their scores.

    • spot on ka kapatid !!! the mere fact that ALL judges were unanimous in favor for karen means they were really impressed. And to were they are seated they saw not an ugly girl but a true queen. fyi, I saw karen in person and she’s pretty with commanding presence. She doesn’t look bad. ?the circulating photos does not give her justice. Those were bad angles/ bad shots

    • I agree. Case # 1 : Maxine Medina at Miss Universe in January this year. Maxine is probably the most beautiful Philippine representative for MU. When she fumbled her Q & A, she was bashed to death by the netizens, calling her dumb and a complete bimbo. We can be harsh to our own queens, we expect them to be nothing less than perfection. But in this life, you can’t have everything, that is the reality of things. Even Pia experienced some hard core bashing during her time because she’s not in great shape when she competed again. I think we should cut them some slack because of the impossible expectations and unrealistic standards of beauty we impose on them and start seeing them as real women who have flaws but still fabulous despite it. After all, perfection, and being perfect , is boring.

      • Maxine most beautiful MUP? I hope you are just kidding because if not, you are totally out of your mind.

  11. To all doubters of Karen’s win, you are wasting your time. She has already won and there is nothing wrong with that at all.

    • oh yes wala na ngang magagawa pero di mo pa rin maikakaila na di dapat talaga sya nakapasok ng top 8 dahil panget sya… uu matalino sya kaya sana nilugar nya ang sarili nya sa tamang lugar. Sana sa Miss Quiz Bee or Ms Declamation sya sumali… uu wala na, nanalo na sya… pero dahil number 1 pageant blogsite ito dito sa Pinas, at alam naman natin na nagbabasa ang mga mentors nila at sa malamang pati ang mga muses dito, at dahil nakatag ang karen ibasco na pangalan dito, kapag nagsearch ang next generations nya sa google, ito ang mababasa nila… nakahit saang continent at kahit kelan, di papasa sa beauty and poise yung mukha nya…

      yaman at ikaw ang number 1 na tagapagtanggol nya, pakisabihan sya… dios mio marimar beauty pageant ito! tandaan, ang kagandahan hindi kailangang i explain. Kapag maganda ka, maganda ka talaga! ke unat, kulot, maputi, maitim, matangkad, o pandak ka… di man ikaw ang pinaka maganda pero di ka papahuli sa iba. Sa kasamaang palad, sya, ayun nasa bandang hulihan talaga… pasalamat sya at mataas ang bigay na score ng 2 may ari sa kanya at nilagpak nila yung mga negra sa scores.

      oh btw, dun sa isang comment mo sa kabilang page, walang kumikwestyon sa auditing firm dahil tabulator lang sila dito.

      • Mere speculation. What standard of beauty are you talking about? Whose standard of beauty? Why would Karen limit herself from what she wants to pursue in her life? The last time I checked she is free to do so. Don’t you find it strange that we can’t accept her win but accept another’s? I brought up SGV to build my case that the decision is objective rather than subjective opinion. In this world,
        numbers don’t lie unfortunately.

      • Siguro ang ganda ganda mo! Ilang korona na kaya nakuha mo sa Q & A? U must possess the pulchritude of a goddess that you have to represent our country in int’l beauty tilts! Go for it dahling!

      • Hi Anony i get what u’re saying but i think u went too far by saying she is too ugly and come off as she didn’t have the right to join the said pageant. Please don’t put a blame to Ms. Ibasco for her win but direct it to the org instead for choosing her. We have no right to tell her what she should do with her life or the decisions she makes. She simply chose to join ME for a good reason and it so happens she was chosen for that JOB as a ME ambasadress.

        Hindi biro ung mga gawain ng isang ME and it was even mentioned by Katherine Espin during one of her interviews before she passed her crown.

        The advocacy of ME requires lots of dedication and good knowledge of what needs to be known. Environmental issues and etc might seem easy to our ears but if we try to think deeper and more scientifically of the things needed to be done, its not easy. Nakakalimutan niyo yata na ung ME indi lng puro glamour.

        When her name was called as the winner, I also have the same thoughts as everyone else did but after a few moments i realized that Karen very much suits to that kind of job because of her background of deep knowledge to what she’s actually competing for. D niyo ba nakita kung paano cya sumasagot sa mga tanong? its very obvious the way she spoke na may knowledge talaga cya sa ganyang mga fields of environmental chuchu which is actually what ME focuses on.

        I do think everyone has the right and the freedom to express themselves but sobra talaga ang pagmumura niyo eh. She represented our country and won tapos ganun ung isusukli nyo sa kanya? She trained for a good toned body, the right posture, pasarela and everything with time dedication. Di nyo ba naisip yun? Hindi kaya madali ang pagiging isang beauty queen pero pinili niya pa rin. Wala lang bang karapatan mangarap na maging beauty queen kapag ganun ung mukha?
        Dinadala pa niya ung pangalan ng Pilipinas pero mismo ang kapwa pa hinihila cya pababa.

        Grabe naman kayo makapagmura. Di naman kasalanan niya na ginawa niya ung best niya at may utak talaga cya tapos cya pinili ng org. Trabaho lang niya ang magperform and train, tapos. Everything was in the hands of the judges and org. Kaya wag niyo cya pagsabihan na lumugar kasi hindi niya kasalanan na cya pinili.

        Move on na rin kayo. Kayo kaya ang maging Karen at nanalo kayo tapos akala mo makapagbigay ka ng karangalan sa iyong bayan pero mismo ung taong bayan nirerepresenta niya ay d masaya kasi d daw cya deserving kasi pangit ang pagmumukha niya. Kayo nalng kaya ang magrepresenta at magprepare sa dapat na mga gawain. Papasar ba kayo?

        Everyone needs to tone down the bashing.
        We instead should give thanks to her efforts and defend her. Find the better sides rather than add on to the commotions.

        WORLD PEACE!

      • ano? nasa bandang hulihan ng pila si karen? pila ng ano? ng mga magaganda diba kc lahat nman ng candidate sa ME magaganda…mananalo b yan sa MPE at papasa sa screening ng BBP kung di yan maganda? hindi sya marahil pinakamaganda o ubod ng ganda pero magaNDA SYA,,,and anung sabi mong hindi kelangan iexplain ang ganda? sure ka? subjective ang ganda komporme sa tumitingin at kultura…Yung talino ang universal at hindi kelangan iexplain…kahit cno kaharap mo, kausap mo, at kung nasan ka pa kung intelligent ka ay intelligent ka

      • ay kung ako si Karen, di ako sasali dahil alam ko kung saan ako kukuyugin ng tao… again and again… may criteria na dapat sundin… yes wala syang kasalanan pero sya magbebenefit kaya sa sya ang masasapol… 100% inosente ba sya, I doubt… may nangyaring kalokohan ba? obviously meron… namiscalculate ba nila mga mangyayari, oo… may mga nasagasaan ba sa ginawa nila, uu… hindi lang ang ibang mas deserving na makapasok ng top 8 kung hindi yung mga pinoy pageant afficionado… i dedefend sya ? sa anong way eh hindi ng dapat sya talaga nakapasok ng top 8! alam naman ng lahat na once na binigyan mo sya ng mic mangangain na sya ng buhay… kaya nga hinahanap yung lecheng face value na yan kung saan… para majustify yung panalo na yan…

      • This kind of thinking is for the uneducated one. Show your face so people would see how you look like and compare it to the one that you are saying ugly.

      • apparently Adrian, before ka magkapagdeliver ng numbers you have to be subjective… the judges have to be subjective… kaya palpak yang idea mo of bringing an audit firm sa scenario…

        ganito lang naman kasimple mandaya eh.. dahil gusto or may discussion between the camp of Ibasco and ME, bibigyan ni Loriane ng mataas or perfect 10 score si Ibasco sa face value at ibaba lahat. Anong score ang pwedeng ibigay sa ibang candidate? pwedeng 7. Baka sabihin nyo eh may ibang judge naman. kadalasan point something ang difference lang ng mga scores na binibigay… so kapag tinabulate na ng audit firm, yung mga nasa bottom part ng scores ng karamihan ng judges eh sya ang matatangal. So once na makausad na si Karen to form and figure, mabilis na sa kanya yun…

        Tanong nyo kay Rodgil, halos perfect scores ang binigay ni Loraine kay Karen sa national pageant nya…

      • Anony, you’re the reason why many women suffer with low self-esteem. It is people like you who keep promoting beauty as a superficial one dimensional concept. How can you possibly say that Karen should know “better” simply because she’s not as stunning as the other candidates. Karen joined MEP, gave her best performance and won the national title. And as a representative of our country, it is her job to give it her all in the international competition. Karen did what she was supposed to do. It’s not her fault that the judges gravitated towards her. Hopefully you can learn to widen your mind because at the end of the day, ME and MU will keep breaking the socially constructed concept of beauty!

      • and Joy, ay wow! edi sana naging neutral din ang ME 2017 sa mga black beauty, unless di mo napansin yun dahil pumasok ang panget na si karen hahaha…Joy beauty pageant ito hindi ito Ms Inner Beauty! edi iallow na din ang mga trans na masali sa ME dahil sa kaloob looban nila eh babae sila… yun naman ang batayan ngayon di ba inner beauty… edi sana di na rin naglagay ng figure and form na yung matataas ang scores eh yung mga sobrang curvy yung katawan pero yung di masyado, eh nasa bottom part ng scoresheet… dont tell me di mo napansin yun…

        more dislike please ahahahha

    • I am amazed at how some tiny noisy quarters keep on insisting on the archaic one-dimensional concept of beauty, let alone the colonial Western standard. Wake up– this is year 2017 and the world has changed! The shackles of colonialism has been broken and the world view of beauty has expanded beyond the narrow physical concept to include character, brains, social compassion. Even on the physical dimension, the standard is no longer just white skin, pointed nose, long legs, blonde, wide blue or green eyes. Beauty is not a universal concept; it is culturally-defined. To some cultures, Oriental look is beautiful. To others, African look is most beautiful.

      Make no mistake about it: Karen is a beautiful Oriental beauty! She should not be judged on Western standards. Moreover, her inner glow makes that Oriental look all the more beautiful. This inner glow— brains, character, compassion, achievements—is not cultural but a universal concept.

      Those hysterics on “delicadeza” for her win in the home turf despite her alleged “ugly” looks are just suffering from acute case of colonial mentality. Are we to give way to foreign contestants (read: white Western beauty stereotypes) even ours is most deserving? The gross irony is that those blabbering “delicadeza” are the ones without an iota of it as they trumpet for all the world to hear the twisted innuendo that a hometown decision has been made because the winner is “not gorgeous”.

      • ay wait sorry ha… Walang nagsasabi na western standards dito… mapa west east south or north ka ng mundong ito hindi naman talaga dapat napasok yung mukhang yun… mas acceptable pa ang 2 blacks na makapasok sa top 8 over her… 6 sa nakapasok sa top 8 eh above par sa western standards 1 eh globally accepted as an average, and then Karen Ibasco as an exception because of what inner beauty hahahaha kakaloka! so nakita nila yun sa category ng beauty and poise?!?!?!? kaswerteng bata biro mo yun nilabas lang yun ngiping kabayo eh nakita na agad ang inner beauty…

  12. Akala ko Francis Libiran or Mak Tumang ang gown nya?

    The 25-year-old beauty queen stunned in a shimmering emerald green gown by Ezra Santos during the evening gown competition.

    During the Q&A portion, Winwyn answered with stance and empathy. She was asked, “How would you promote Hispanic Americana culture with language barriers?”

    Here’s her well-thought-out answer:

    “Language can be learned, but the will and determination to contribute something to the organization cannot. It has to come from the heart and it has to be natural.

    I believe that kindness is a universal language. If you treat people with tolerance, patience, and love, you will understand each other.

    Hispanic culture is not about language only. It’s about love for God, love for country, love for history and culture and love for family.

    As a Filipina with a unique heritage, I have instilled that.

    I am ready to promote the Hispanic culture, not just in Asia, but in the whole world. It is time to celebrate the Hispanic culture, It is meant to be celebrated.”

    • Naku kaya ko sauluhin yan if translated to Spanish. Halarang sagot ni Wynwin eh nakahanda na pero pinili niya paren mag ingles. In my case kaya ko sabihin yan in Spanish with conviction at puso kasi nakakaintindi ako ng spanish thru reading. And i can speak spanish if memorised.

  13. By the very question posed to Teresita, it is clear that RH organization will assume our next rep will be able to speak the tongue. They will not be so lenient next time. And we should not be complacent.

    But because it takes a LIFETIME to MASTER any language, I suggest we do the next best thing : support Hispano-American initiatives to make their culture – food and music, in particular – more known in our part of the world. Let’s consume more savory Mexican corn-based treats and stuff ourselves silly with Argentina-style empanadas and get gassy on the meat-and-bean stew, feijoada. Ask radio DJ’s to play Astrud Gilberto, Celia Rodriguez, Alejandro Sanz, Julio Iglesias, and Menudo retro’s.

    Did we not popularize Thalia before Indonesia produced their own version of Marimar?

    Ben Chan and Jonas Gaffud have begun in their own way by hiring Brazilian models, while ME and Eat Bulaga had Priscilla Mireilles and Daiana Menezes, respectively.

  14. Truly deserving. A candidate may lack the towering height, but her face and poise will save her… nothing we can do if the candidate lacks the face. It is a hopeless case to be brutally frank. Hope the future candidates will be very honest and level-headed in judging themselves.

    Wyn deserves it and she was overall radiant.
