  1. Indonesia’s transformation is quite remarkable. Needless to say, the Philippine beauty camp that trained her effectively delivered in time for Miss Universe. Without this training, Bunga will definitely be just a number in this highly competitive beauty pageant. Albeit my being so impressed with her transformation, Bunga appears to be like past Misses Philippines, who went through the same rigorous training in the same camp and still failed to make it in the semifinals. Her face, however dolled-up, is forgettable plain… simply ordinary without the ethereal universal charm that all past Miss Universe winners exuded during their winning moments.

  2. they are all winners to me,,they should make all of em represent a cause and make it happen,, oh what a wonderful world this would be

  3. Heto na naman po tayo. A sneak peak at Rachel’s final gown. Take note this picture is in black and white.

    I’m really hoping it’s a sultry gown to reveal Rachel’s curves.

  4. Initially, South Africa was my top pick to be MU.. but after prelims…. uh oh.. nope. she looks small.. and the styling is bad. medyo hindi siya nag live up sa expectation ko. maganda lang talaga.

    Thailand… di ko bet ang swimsuit presentation but okay siya sa evening gown.. weird ng body niya na skinny pero may mga nag ji-jiggle. lol

    Russia might be part of the semifinalists..

    Venezuela.. ganda niya with her styling. as usual, she delivered… Venezuela e.

    i was surprised with USA. in fairness ha!

    BTW.. how true na may disqualification na magaganap? i am not sure but it’s circulating sa instagram. latina daw.

    • Baka Brazil kasi di siya pasok sa age requirement kasi dapat by Feb 1, 18 na ang isang kandidata but she turned 18 after Feb 1 pa…

      • Some are saying it’s Colombia because of her racist remarks and terrorist something. then Haiti daw is preggy. I am not sure. huhu

  5. May bagong chismis!!! Top 16 will be composed of 4 girls per region/continent. Saw this sa misso. Not sure kung paano yung hatian into regions tho.

    • This is very lame. There are a lot of beautiful candidates from Asia alone. This is not Miss World. This is Miss Universe. Haist!

    • From the rehearsals, it’s looking like there’s going to be a TOP 5 instead of TOP 6 this year.

  6. dark horse Asian Korea
    dark horse Latina Honduras
    dark horse Caucasian Slovenia
    dark horse Black US V Islands
    dark horse MiddleEast Israel

    my heartfelt choices (big 5)
    Philippines
    Great Britain
    Iceland
    Peru
    South Africa

    (succeeding 5)
    Thailand
    Indonesia
    USA
    Germany
    Jamaica

    (following 5)
    Puerto Rico
    Mexico
    Sri Lanka
    Russia
    Dominican Republic or Angola

    I want Colombia and Venezuela to be out… but the sash factor and the audience factor creeps in
    The other two that I do not want to be in are …. Brazil and France but they are eager to make it.

    By the way, I was there in person and saw them only a few feet away from where I sat. It is exciting.
    Sunday evening… going to be MORE EXCITING !

  7. Her NatCos is sooooooo 1980s … sooooo gayish ….. Sarimanok is supposed to have all the colors of the rainbow.

  8. Rachel… reminds me a lot of Lia Andrea’s face with the body of Sonia Racciti. Good job! I still BELIEVE in the “4-42-2” code. She will win.

    Honduras… Dark Horse… my 2nd runner up

    Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela… the usual suspects… did very well.

    Indonesia… what happened to my Melanie Marquez/Leah Padilla… she suddenly became a Jinky Vidal 2.0… styling was done wrongly. I STILL PREFER #WULANDARI.

    Thailand… reminds me so much of those half Asians in the 80’s na nagcocompete s Miss America or Miss USA. Alyssa Campanella’s body with Lu Parker/Ingrid Rivera’s face… I STILL PREFER #ANIPORN and #CHALITA.

    Malaysia… hope she’ll make it to the Top 15…

    Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar… one of these girls will make it.

    Peru… antagal nya s STAGE ah…

    Brazil, France, and USA… mga ndi papahuli ng buhay… mga nanlalamon ng buo s STAGE.

    South Africa… very Kristen Dalton… nagmukha cyang maliit.

    Kazakhstan… another Dark Horse

    India… they will definitely give her a SPOT.

    IRAQ… A&Q and KF… mas napabilib nyu sana ako kung siya n lang trinain nyu.

  9. Maiba lang ako, i watched Miss Supra EG Prelims, Anyare Aces and Queens? Parang hindi natutukan si Channel Olive Thomas, Anyare Aces and Queens sa mga kandidata niyo this year,halos ligwak lahat? Pls. lang

  10. it’s all going to go down on the interviews to distinguish among the strong swimsuit and gown competitors, so hard to dwindle to just a few. However, remember that interviews are where Rachel excel the most , so … top 3 ? I am really hoping this , it will be a complete victory to achieve this even if she does not get the crown itself.

  11. hay.. when you can’t contain your excitement because the aftereffects still linger. hahaha. hay rachel, with what we just saw, i cant wait for nov 26. so excited. i’ve been refreshing my browser hoping tito norman will post something about the finals so i wont put my thoughts about how im imagining rachels final look. I agree with george and dandan on a dress that can really highlight her assets. I really wish for a red gown but white it is as they say. but i go for minimalist where she can move with ease coz again she is at her best when in motion. i remember miss universe 2002 and the eg of the top 3. I love them all. miss russias was minimalist but was so nice in motion she like a goddess going down from the heavens, miss china was all closed in front but when she turned around it was a full display of her long back and curves, panama was sweet, with little flower patterns perfect for her curls. for rachels im thinking of a loose pony like that of janicel lubinas final look at MI but only for the EG segment. I already love the way she rocked it in SS tonight. again I’d like to see her in style that will really complement what she’ll be wearing. her eyes and face make-up tonight were also on point. btw I like liz so much but her final look at MGI was not how i’d wished her to be but that was done for a strategy. liz prelim looks were better that the coronation. pia in 2015 sported different styles for SS and EG that perfectly matched what shes wearing and the vibe she’s conveying (who can forget that back pattern of her EG and the smize, and her boobies during SS hehehe). so i dont know how rachel will look like come 26. i can only imagine, hope and pray and trust rachel and her teams judgement. sending you love, happiness and positive vibes rachel. go team philippines.

  12. This is my first time na yung consensus ng mga to dito eh above 90 percent sa performance ni Rachel. Compared last few years maraming nega. Over all performance nya for me eh 98.8 percent.
    Now the big question is anu kaya yung I ibibigay na score ni ateng Pia ? Mag ala crab mentality ba sya at big yan nya ng low score si Rachel? Ano mga ka norms ang iyong thoughts?

    • If she is confidently beautiful with a heart, she will be fair. But if she is the type that doesn’t want her thunder stolen…

  13. Pageants usually prefer a clean and sweet yet regal presentation… it’s the safest way to go .
    Judges may not like a sexy approach… unless the candidate has a sweet face to go with it .
    I’m liking the positive comments
    But If I’m watching the same videos , I just don’t know how anyone can judge one candidate against another. They are just too blurry for me to make any opinion.

    • Exactly! The runway was short pa. I guess whoever made the best impression in the interviews will most likely make the semis.

  14. Rachel Peters is the Queen last night. One of the solid performers who don’t mind the tacky venue and gave their all. Her walk is perfect with enough landi but maintains a queenly vibe. She is confidently beautiful. Can’t wait to cheer for her in Vegas!

  15. Rachel’s performance in the prelims was excellent, as expected. Congratulations, Rachel!

    But remember guys, according to Miss USA, the largest chunk of a candidate’s total prelims score will come from the interview portion – a whopping 60%. This would mean that the evening gown and swimsuit segments are allocated only 20% each of a candidate’s preliminary total score.

    I’ve always thought Rachel’s greater strengths were in her interview, personality and communication skills, and I am certain she nailed the interviews. Her swimsuit and evening gown presentations were top notch. So I expect her to be a shoo-in as one of the semifinalists.

    Because the interview portion makes up such a significant chunk of the total prelim score, some candidates who appeared less than perfect during the swimsuit and evening gown segments could end up as semifinalists because they did so well in their interview. The opposite could also apply – candidates who gave flawless swimsuit and evening gown presentations may not survive the first cut because they did poorly during their interview.

    So expect some surprises come finals night.

    • @Melanie, i was just thinking about the interview section.
      i think that rachel, aced that (this is a guess, but quite a possibility)
      and that feeling of confidence
      after you did something well carried over to the prelims…

      and on the flip side, if you did nt do too well on the interviews,
      it could affect your performance on the next segment as well

      • @sunkist – Right. Or conversely, a candidate who did poorly in their interview might try to compensate by giving a spectacular swimsuit and evening gown presentation to try and even out her score. It can cut both ways.

      • Maybe that’s why Thailand bombed the swimsuit portion? I saw a lot stress and frustration and nerves on Maria during the SS round. I guess she felt like she needed to prove something.

  16. basing on Rachel’s performance on the preliminary I think she’s dialing it down…she has something up her sleeve come finals night…may pasabog sya…she’s a shoo in for the semi finals definitely…so excited for the coronation day

  17. Rachel looks stunning and mesmerizing last night. Neither so overwhelming nor underwhelming !
    Relaxed and looking fresh, she radiated as she sashayed that not so “inviting” runway.
    I’d give her 2 thumbs up, and a perfect “10” for her performance. If Rachel keeps her momentum going, leading to the finals, beaming with confidence, she cannot go wrong ! Good luck and God bless you, Rachel 🙂 🙂 🙂

  18. Meron daw sabotage na naganap. May nagtago daw Ng gamit. Ewan konkung truth ba ito.or part of drama for promotion.

  19. so yesterday was the beginning of week 2.
    rachel performed really well, final stretch is only
    a few days away, all she really need to do is be consistent
    and give that final push on the finals night
    she just need to project to the judges that
    she wants it and that she deserves it
    convince them, rachel

    second phase, second week,
    i am sure your top 10 have changed
    some 1st week front runners have faded,
    some made critical mistakes, others have shined,
    some unknowns got noticed, and some frontrunners
    cemented their positions.

    after, the ups and downs of the first week
    rachel performed really consistently well in the prelims.

    home stretch, rachel,
    keep your eyes on the prize!!!!

  20. BTW, Rachel Peter’s swimsuit round infinity walk reminds me of ariadna gutierez’s catwalk..bouncy and flowy.

  21. For sure she’ll make it top 16 and 10, my concern yung gown, she carried herself well pero depende lang yan sa judges if they go for trendy style na masala ni Thailand or typical beauty queen gown like Indo. The six gowns shown isn’t really showing rachel’s Assets. Her assets are shoulders, boobs, legs and ass, which isn’t that wow! I hope meron brand new gown. Even the black thigh high slit style angelina jolie wore at one of the oscars will do good ofcourse Di Lang black. I’m all praying a stand out gown. Otherwise she’ll be like MJ, hot body, great q&a but the gown wasn’t a wow factor. Just my 2cents

  22. Wow! What a silent slayer. Rachel has been very quiet in the social media but last night, she definitely showed that she’s a force to be reckoned with. What a phoenix! She was radiating with confidence and ease. Her long and lean body rocked that golden gown. And when she came out in her bikini… game over 🙂 She truly conquered that minuscule stage! She was one of the best performers of the evening.

    Keep the momentum going, Rachel. Don’t let your guard down. You’re doing great! ❤❤❤

      • Advice ni Shamcey kay Pia. Kya d cya aligaga during the first few days of MU 2015…

    • Wag kang nega, wala pa si Rachel sa peak nyan. Sadyang mahihina lang siguro kalaban ngayon kaya kung ako si Rachel, seize the moment and the opportunity! Si Shamcey nga peak sa lahat except Q and A kaya ayun runner up lang. Kung maganda sana sagot niya noon eh di sana panalo siya. The correct advice is “Be at peak at all times” kasi pano ka mananalo kung inconsistent ka sa contest kailangan stand out ka from start to finish para memorable ka sa mga judges hindi yung mamimili ka lang kung saan ka magpeperform, mahirap na baka mahirapan kang humabol pag stand out na yung iba.

      • In the words of Pia on her interview with Boy Abunda – ” Know when to peak. Kasi pag mataas ang energy mo, from the start till the finals, mapapagod ka eh. You should peak where it matters, sa preliminaries, ganyan. They will never see it coming, sasabihin nila, saan ba nanggaling itong babaing to, they will see you as a a dark horse!!! “

  23. Rachel was spectacular in the preliminaries. This is a woman at the peak of her powers. And she did peaked at the right time where it matters the most. She unloaded her weapons – the long legs, the rocking great body, the fresh aura, the great smile, the fabulous hair and the exotic skin tone. I hope the judges have seen what we Pinoy pageant fans have seen in her. Forget about her past pics where her ward robe were kinda casual, her NatCos kinda failed in execution. In the prelims, she slayed, in swimsuit , evening gown and I’m sure, in the interview as well. Kabahan na ang mga mahigpit na makaka tunggali nya, palaban talaga sya ngayon.

  24. Despite the lackluster welcome ceremony, uneventful week and underwhelming prelims venue, the MU trademark of pageant glitz and glamour has not lost its sparkle.. MU still has the most number of barbie beautiful girls. .shining shimmering in the de riguer introductory skimpy outfits…the fierce factor may have waned a bit but the girls are bringing their a-game into it nonetheless… Goodluck girls!!

  25. Tatagalugin ko nalang baka marinig Ng kapitbahay. Pakatapos Ng deliberasyon Ng mga hurado hindi daw nakapasok Yung isa sa mga hype na kandidata itoy ayun sa malapit na kaibigan Ng isang hurado. Don’t know how true is this but let’s wait and see sa finals night.

    • Just MY Observation lang ha: Parang mas bongga ang mga NC at Gowns nila Rachel, Nelda, Mariel at Elizabeth during Bb. Pilipinas compared to their International Pageant’s wardrobe. #AllTeaAllShade

      • @sunny. I have to agree w you regarding Mariel De Leon red gown and Elizabeth Clenci Phenomenal national gown kung puede ulitin. but w Rachel Orange number during Bbp I prefer the one she wore today. How I wish may change of gown come Finals.

  26. I saw Indonesia’s gown. It good. The color looks good on her. Thailand’s gown is nice but just remove that awkward piece on the waist/hip area.

  27. Very satisfied with her performance. Not a fan of that gold ensemble but definitely better than Maxine’s fringe. We need to stay out of gold colored gowns since lighting plays a factor. Peru’s gown was shimmering when she was walking and that was carefully well thought out. Rachel’s wasn’t.

    Styling was on point. More nude, more natural suits her the most.
    9.99 and 9.5 hihihi

  28. With the performance Rachel has exhibited in the prelims, I think fan votes are just extraneous to surely get Rachel in in the semifinals. Her swimsuit pasarela was perfectly executed as she effortlessly glided on the ramp like a pro. She did not have to exaggeratedly bang her hips here and there to wow the audience. Her infinity walk werked just like that. As regards the gown parade, Rachel’s gown was not that fab but she solidly slaaaayed the stage. I hope that she will use a different gown on the finals night.

    By tradition, whatever platform or stage used by Miss Universe during the preliminary competition would also be the one used in the finals. FINGERS CROSSED (with emphasis) this will not be true in this edition. The stage (and of course the entire preliminary competition) is a total downgrade than last year’s edition. No wonder MUO President Paula Shugart herself has stated that last year’s Miss Universe edition was the best ever, due to the Filipino’s reception of the event, such that she immediately looked for a repeat of the event here in the country but to no avail. Indeed, it is expensive to stage the pageant and that it takes a lot of generous sponsors to fund it.

    Hoping for the best for Rachel and the Philippines!

  29. ohhhlalaluvvvettt. what can i say. divine. i think this is where we finally able to see rachel on her zone, in her playing field. we have been hearing a lot from those who are currently there in vegas and in the videos that she really look great and better IN MOTION. and there we have it. in the time and place, when and where it matters the most. she’s dressed perfectly, she moves gracefully, she made that earthly toned sun kissed body looked so divine. you see a goddess, you see that BOOOOTY there. oh tyra with love hove she worked that booty. and definitely what I have been wishing for, they made an effort with her HAIR, finally. they made her look different in every segment, relaxed during intro, soft curls with volume during the swimsuit and one sided curls on the left during the evening gown. continue rachel, bring this to the finals. finals is another battlefield. I hope the team will duplicate or exceed what we have just witnessed. oh just change the nude colored shoes if you’ll be wearing white or red evening gown. but the are okay during the first two segments. if that wont affect your moves and comfort. all the rest are great. i even felt your smile as very genuine, poised and natural. a smile from the heart. not just a smile to please the crowd. you really did great rachel and your team tonight. go rachel. go team philippines.

  30. Base sa mga live vids kanina sa FB, eto muna mga napansin ko…will watch yung HD pag available na…

    Daming gumaya sa ikot ni Mariam nung 65th MU…lalo na nung swimsuit. Para bang may award na “Best El Tocuyo Turn”…standout sa SS are:
    PHILIPPINES, Russia, Venezuela and India…basta gusto ko sa SS Portion, queenly na bordering/lagpas konti to malandi…

    Sa EG di masyadong napanood dahil wala na available na live…pero pero…nakakatakot si THAILAND sa portion na toh..Naitago nila yung di kagandahan nyang katawan sa gown nyang nakaka-sexy…Reynang-reyna…after ng SS perf nya, kala ko maliligwak na e…kaso bumawi sa EG.

    Pretty girls Korea and Sri Lanka…kulang ang perf…sana sila na lang ang pumunta dito to train…

    France, Canada and USA are girls na I like…pero di na ako magugulat if di sila makapasok…Kung papasok sila dahil sa interviews nila, edi YEHEY!

    Nasasayangan akong walang stunning na black Barbies this year..sorry sa term pero you know na what I mean…

    Daming pak na pak na Latinas sa rampahan! Kaso ewan ko..kaumay…sina Vene at Mexico lang (sige, si Peru din kasi nadala ng face) ang napansin ko…

    Overall, I think pasok si Rachel…
    Kaso after ng 65th MU, hirap nang gumawa ng final top 16 ko…hahaha!

    • I agree with almost everything you said Clark Kent (hehehe), but I must say that I disagree with your analysis on Thailand’s gown. I found the gown toooo old-fashioned. The pep-bloom effect looked costume-y to me. I don’t know why but I’m reminded of Milka Chulina’s 1993 EG. Not to mention that she had a hard time walking in it because she had lift her arms a tad because of those “wings” beside her. Tapos she ended with a 1990’s pose at the end. Kulang na lang ng rose from the Little Miss Universe’s parang 1994 Miss universe na.

      Napansin ko rin yung Mariam Habach turn, even Bunga did it! Wala, no one executed it as well as Mariam. =)

      • Hi James! Ewan ko, pero parang bagay kasi kay Maria ang boring at dated na styling. Basta..parang may magic nung lumabas sya in that “busy” gown…Although yes…sige…factor nga naman how the ladies carry their gowns so pwedeng ligwak parin sya…

        Sobrang nasuya ako sa Mariam turn, promise…hahaha! Last year, yung superhero pose ni Pia ang ginaya…this year, ito naman…Next year kaya? Di na ako magtataka kung may kekendeng ala-infinity nyan…

      • Hehe. I’m really not a fan of Thailand after the Prelims. Not sure if the judges will go for the over-the-top gown given that MU judges have a penchant for crowning ladies in simple silhouettes and modern presentation. We will see on Monday morning (Manila time)! =)

  31. Based from Rachel’s prelims performance, she will definitely make in the Top 15.

    My score for her prelims:
    SS: 9.95
    EG: 9.25

  32. Rachel was really in her element. I hope the judges saw that because it’s actually still in their hands. It’s hard to expect nowadays.

  33. Naiwan pala ni Rachel ang isang luggage na puno ng sandatang wardrobe. Si Liz Clenci ang nagdala ng luggage para sa kanya. Liz Clenci save the day!

  34. I have a feeling na hangganf Top15 lang si Rachel. Papalakpak na yan sa Top10.

  36. HA HA HA HA HA HA ANG DAMING NAAALIBADBARAN KINA THAILAND AT INDONESIA NA KESYO OVERHYPED LANG DAW, PROMISING LANG DAW KUNO BUT UNDERWHELMED AT VERY LAME KUNO ANG MGA PERFORMANCE AT TSAKA DAW MGA GOWN NILA, NA KESYO MILES AWAY DAW SI PHILIPPINES…….

KUNG GANYAN KAYO KAKAMPANTE E BAKIT ANG DAMI NYONG SATSAT AT PANAY KUMPARA NYO SI RACHEL KINA INDONESIA AT THAILAND, BAKIT YANG DALAWA LANG BA ANG KALABAN NYA.

    • Dear Angelo,

      May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crotch and may your arms be too short to scratch it.

      World Peace.

      • AS A MATTER OF FACT THOMAS NA PUTA ANG INA, THE FLEAS ARE ACTUALLY FEASTING NOT ONLY CROTCH’S PUBIC HAIR BUT MY IN MY ASS TOO. I DON’T NEED TO SCRATCH IT, IT FEELS SO GOOD AS IF I AM BEING MASTERBATED BY YOUR MOTHER……OHHH WHAT A FEELING!!!!!

  37. Go Rachel!!! Based sa Preliminary performance mo kanina, lalo akong na-excite sa Coronation Night. 😉 you did well and hope you’ll do the same or even more on the 26th US. Kung ganyan ka next week, malaki ang chance na umabot sa Top 5. Really hoping for the Top 3 and the MU crown, pero hanggang Top 5 na lang muna since SS at EG pa lang naman ang nakita ko. 1-2 steps at a time muna. And if you reach Top 5, hoping you’ll do well in the 2 rounds of Q&A for the beks community and the whole Philippines. Haha

    Go Miss Philippines and bring home the 4th MU crown. ;

  38. Isa po dito and gown ng aking Queen sa final night. Which one? Di ko sasabihin, kayo na ang bahala. Haha all I know super Ganda niya sa final night

    • Wow. The gowns look really really good. Pero parang mas ok na yung kanina. Mas nakakagalaw sya at mas kita ang best asset nya. Pero kahit alin naman ang suotin nya, for sure at sana madala nya ng maayos para sure spot from Top 10 to Top 5 then go get the crown na 😉

      • a source told me that she has 2 Val Taguba gown. 1 is gold (yung sinuot niya kanina) and another one is White. although I like all the designs here.. I am just not sure if bagay sakanya ang turtleneck type na neckline or yun takip ang neck and cleavage. I think she looks best na kita ang neck and boobey niya.

    • YONG RED NA LANG NA YAN SANA ANG SINUOT NYA. TAPOS SA FINALS SUOTIN NA YANG BLACK KUNG MARAMING MAGSUSUOT NG WHITE OR NUDE COLORS, AT PAG MARAMING NAKA BLACK AT COLORED GOWNS, SUOTIN NYA YONG PUTI. ME RESERBA PA SYANG GOLD.

    • The gold one is definitely out. Nasuot na ni Nicole yon. The white on the right side nasuot na ni MJ sa Binibini which leaves to just 4.

    • kung totoong andyan sa 6 na yan ang isusuot nya sa finals i wil choose the red one. bakat pa rin naman ang katawan nya and im sure kaya nya dalhin yan. kaya nya ihampas ang balakang nya into enough level. basta ang hair wag i sa side like what she did kanina mala Iris ang hair nya. i prefer yung GGV hairstyle nya or yung kanina during SS. mas ayusin nalang ng bongga. If mag ba black sya ung 5th the the lower pwede na wag nalang isama ang cape especially ung nasa leeg.

    • I vote for the while on the left or the gold on the top right. Parang betsina ko yung while. Parang birhen ang peg. The silhouette will feature her legs…hihihi

    • But all of these gowns are accessible on Val Taguba’s IG account. I doubt if they’re just recycling old gowns for Miss Universe.

    • I love the gold or both the whites. But to be strategic, white sana para mukhang snow queen hihi gold is too common and for sure there will lots of gold gowns on that final night.

      • The white one with leaf designs is the one i wanna see on finals night. The other pattern designs of the other gowns are common

    • Yung 5th one na black ang maganda. But no no sa mga mermaid gowns! Yung asset ni Rachel yung legs tapos tatakpan? Pati chest niya dapat hindi tinatakpan.

  39. Ewan ko kasi noon ay Top 6 lang sya pero ngayon ay Top 3 na sya hihihi
    OMG, Country of the Year plsss give us the Crown hihihi cherette 🙂

      • Teh kaya pa. we’re currently at number 4 (260). Tie Australia at Venezuela sa top 1 (330) tapos Indonesia top 3 (320). Tho hindi ko masyadong sure if accurate to because of special awards pero nakapattern to sa pointing system ng Misso

  40. She really stood out! Remember just a few days ago, she looked lacklustre, but here we are now! Very fresh and totally in the zone! Hope it will be better in the coronation night! Pretty excited for her!

  41. Best she’s ever looked (although I loved her sophisticated makeup at her send-off). Rachel looked very relaxed, very fresh–just beautiful. Kudos KF, your Universe game is catching up with A&Qs.

  42. “Focusing on Rachel and less of what gown she wore…”

    Are you not happy with the gown Sir Norman? Just asking.

    Though there are lots of Gold gowns tonight, I think that Rachel nailed both segments. She looked relaxed and have flaunted her assets – those mile long legs!

    She’ll definitely make it to the first cut. I hope she’ll bring her game up two or three notches higher during the finals night.

  43. She did really well. So much, that I’m offended she’s being pitted against overhyped candidates like Indonesia and Thailand – those two underwhelmed and if Q&A truly supervised a part of their training, they were seriously ripped off lmao. Rachel could easily annihilate them, so I hope even with her fantastic prelims performance the odds (and the luck) will remain in her favor. Sa “fate” na lang nagkakatalo.

  44. Oh my talk about peaking at the right time. She is the lady to beat after prelims.

    SS 9.99
    EG 9.75

  45. I’m sorry but I just still can’t let go of that…that….that horrendous venue! Mezzanine? Seriously? Lol. The space looked like it used to be a hotel lounge floor (with sofas and chairs ) leading to the conference rooms or other restaurants converted into a makeshift stage.

    And the set and stage – – for goodness sake – -GMA Supershowish unstable stage covered in tarpaulin with faux doors?!!! wtf. – the only consolation is that it has “Ph” written on it. I have seen better staging of Ms. Gay Pangkalawakan in the past.

    From a full-packed, elaborately thought-of, life-changing experience via the 2016 Ms. Universe in the Philippines, this 2017 is indeed a let-down.

    On to Rachel’s performance.

    > Bravo. Full use of her best asset: Her legs for weeks. From the swimsuit to the long gown.

    > I am pleasantly surprised with her face. I have always thought that is was one of her weakest points. She looked fresh, relax and beautiful during the preliminary.

    > While overall she’s fantastic, I was expecting more from her “walk”.

    > She may not be among the tallest or the more voluptuous but she carried herself well.

    > Pinoy fans are really the best fans.

    Other Notes:

    > Underwhelmed with other contestants being hyped as front liners. You know who you are.
    Indonesia is all teeth while Thailand has no teeth. Lol.

    > Watch the swimsuit walk of Ms. Iraq (or as the hosts would say Ay-rak). Funny last pose. Lol.

    > Latinas are strong as usual. Columbia, Mexico, Venezuela. But the Southeast Asian Beauties are stronger.

    Dear Rachel, redeem us Filipinos from the heartaches the past weeks. Is it too much to ask for a fourth Ms Universe crown this soon?

    World Peace.

  46. Bias aside, she slayed the other “frontrunners” and cemented her status as the one to beat. Top 3, at least.

  47. IF NOT THE BEST, SURELY ONE OF THE BEST. JUST WANT TO SEE HER WITH THAT HATI SA GITNA HAIRSTYLE. MAYBE THEY’RE RESERVING THAT LOOK FOR HER IN THE FINALS. SO EGZOITED! GO RACHEL!
