  1. Ilan po ba yung girls per group na maglalaban sa 4 slots ng group nila? mahina ako sa geography but would a group have a much lesser number of contestants?

  2. Rachel is pretty, but she is prettier when she smiles. Sana may makapagsabi sa kanya nyan para talagang all smiles sya sa Finals. Haha. Yan din ang reason kaya parang ang light nya tingnan on stage nung prelims kasi parang relaxed at naka smile na sya madalas. 😉

    • veks i was going to post this… Bida Kontrabida ba ang peg nilang dalawa? Si Pia ba ang magiging hadlang sa pangarap ni Rachel Louise Peters? Abangerssss…. hihihi

      • But why is jonas attending ?
        Does he have any business there ? Oh , I forgot . He has Maria and Bunga to look after

      • Fabbie I think he has a book signing. I pray that Jonas and Pia do not sabotage Philippines’ chances this Sunday. I really do. We are all Filipinos and we should be cheering on Rachel despite camp differences.. hihihi

      • right now , I think it’s Miss South Africa’s crown to lose
        Every single site says SA
        Even the former MU winners and candidates say SA
        I want Rachel to win . Girls like that are hard to come by .
        I just hope she smiles more . She looks a lot better when she smiles . She looks more engaging and reachable

    • Im so sorry but this picture tells me something…I hope this wont prove the allegations about MJ before. Jonas is a bitter loser as we all know.

    • Ofcourse she likes this format, her chances of winning is higher kasi yung big competition nya will likely won’t get in cuz ma-nanarrow cla. Obvious she will the online voting award cuz of taeland shrewd ways. Imagine ang mananalo is from europe but her real dreams is to get into Hollywood like gal gadot. She’ll be a winner even though her heart isn’t into it just like gal. It makes the MU look like a lottery ticket. Let’s pick 4 in each continent even though they’re just there to not really compete but just get exposure in modelling world or Hollywood. I know this is time to be all representing from diff marginalise group, if MU wants to go that direction they should accept single moms as well or not disqualify someone got knock up.
      Since this is what happen na, May suggestion, kasi may votohan live, we should vote for the one na wala masyado exposure ang pageantry sa kanila like Tanzania, Ghana, Iraq, even Germany. I’ll be pissed off if taeland and even Indo will make it tapos wala tayo, simply cuz Rachel deserves it.
      Also, i feel MU is a let down with this new rule cuz they copy MW. One of the things I like about MU is they don’t really show obvious favoritism on a particular country since having this rule, makes them look like they want some country to win. It’s like in olympics , give gold medals to those who hadn’t Receive gold medal even though their performance isn’t at par

    SINAMA KO SA EUROPEAN COUNTRIES SI PHILIPPINES KASI 3 LANG ANG MAISIP KONG DESERVING SA EUROPE.

    DAHIL NA CONFIRMA NA NGA NA TOTOO ANG 4444 FORMAT. WE COULD BARELY SEE THAT EUROPE NGA ANG LLAMADO. AT LUGI UNG IBANG REGION.

    • Baklah , I know isa ka sa magtititili If Rachel’s wins
      Your tactic is to lower your expectations … just in case something awry happens .

      It’s really a pain to expect something big to happen and then nothing happens. The last few weeks have been a letdown after Laura and Mariel clapped . I know it’s just a beauty contest . But it affects us at so many levels.. I felt so tired after waking up to the news of 2 Asian girls winning .

      I hope Sunday will be a different night for us . I intend to watch the full show ..but this is not going to happen unless Rachel finishes all the way to the end .

    • Oiii unti unti na nya tlaga sinasama si Rachel. Nakiliti cya kasi deep inside 101% full Rachel yan si Baklah. Its his defense mechanism just incase di manalo si Rachel. If i know ilang dasal, pamisa, at boxes of incense sticks inalay nya kay Rachel para manalo 🙂

  4. I’m not liking this #fakenews about Rachel’s gown to distract others. Filipino pageant accounts need to be more responsible than this. Veks gown lang yan. It’s not like other contestants can change their gowns easily. lol. Think think think mga veks. Kakairita na. hihihi

    • Every year, there’s always a drama about something (gown, disqualification, etc.)

      Filipinos love drama 🙂

    • Sana nga pero kung lucky talaga yan, eh dapat lahat sila ay Miss Universe! 😛 Guess “lucky” in a sense that they all got into the semis up to the top tier. Philippines is going to be called for the top tier this Sunday! 😉

      “Major major” Venus Raj and her barbie-like figure started it all. The Philippines have really been sending competitive and deserving women to MU.

      Janine could have been our 3rd MU but Olivia’s undeniable beauty reigned supreme. Sigh.

  5. Unfair ang ganyan format what if the first 16 highest score came from asia and Americas only ? Isasama nila yong nasa lower rank to satisfy lang yong top 4 ng bawat region what if kung yong tinanggal sa true 16 ranks ay mas mag shine during pageant?

  6. Good evening sa inyong lahat! 😃😃😃

    Kung ganyan ang format, pakiramdam ko marami pa ring “Wild Cards” from Asia.

    My Top 16 after the prelims, trying my best to be as diverse as possible:
    From Asia+Oceania+Africa
    Philippines, Thailand, Nigeria, South Africa

    From Americas+Carribean
    Guyana, USA, Colombia, Canada

    From Europe
    France, Finland, Turkey, Great Britain

    My 4 wildcards
    Indonesia, Singapore (ang ganda pala niya!), Iraq, Israel

    Ito po’y prediksyon lamang. Peace tayong lahat! 😃😃😃

  7. Kung ganito na talaga ang magiging format, parang destiny na talaga kung sino ang mananalo. Minsan, may mga dark horse talaga na saka lang lumulutang pag Finals na. Meron ding reserved sa umpisa (like Prelims) tapos may pasabog pala pagdating sa Finals. Pero kahit saan mang competition, mas maganda sana kung announced na agad ang rules/ criteria umpisa pa lang. Sa new format kasi na ito, na mukhang ngayon lang talaga na-finalize at in-announce, either may gusto silang isama sa Top 15 na hindi nakasama gamit ang old format or gusto lang talaga nilang i-tweak ang format. Pero aminin man natin o hindi at naguguluhan man tayo kung bakit naisip ito ng MUO, sigurado pa din akong tutok tayong lahat sa Lunes dahil ito ang pinakahihintay na pageant na lahat. Haha. At sana si Rachel nga ang destined to be Miss Universe 2017 😉

  8. Ang panget! Pano kung ang top 5 during prelims eh from Asia Africa Oceania? So since 3 spot nalang paglalabanan, nga nga slash clapper na yung 2 from the region na nagkataong rank 4 at 5 overall during preliminary? Jusko! Kaloka! So ngayon pala hindi na goal ng isang bansa ang makapasok sa final 15. Final 3 nalang ang peg! Pwe!

  9. I remember Ara Arida made it to Top 16 through online votes. Rachel Peters will have the same fate because she has the same reserved bearing and temperament as Ara. Just my opinion.

    • Ara’s preliminary performance was actually really subpar and lackluster, and definitely needed the online votes. Even Are said she had to change up her walk from her pa-sweet walk during the prelims and it was that decision that helped carry her through to the top 5 after making it through the semis via online votes. Not to mention her unfortunate hairstyle in the prelims evening gown segment and her wonky eye makeup that prelim night.

    • Ariella was a top contender for the MU2013 crown..that was the headline of the local press back then.as proof, she was a favorite of sponsors as she was hand picked to showcase the yamamay collection and the Tony Ward couture at Mercedes Benz fashion week where she stood out with her pro like catwalk skills despite her short height. She was also one of the few who joined the MU org do charity work for children stricken with cancer at a local hospital in Moscow..I remember an mtv shoot she had with select girls with then Russian singer Emil….it was thus a total surprise to me that she was called at the last 16th spot by spice girl Mel b with that strong British accent saying the fans picked the phils. For sure, ariella got into the top 16 on her own merits and that she also topped the vodi app fan vote..when asked about the confusion, ariella kept mum and she felt nothing but gratitude for being in the first cut and eventually placing 3rd RU..she could have placed higher having topped the swimsuit round, but her answer to the q&a round was forgettable..to date, the MU org did not feel the need to address the issue – wherein a candidate made it to the top 15 after the tally of the prelims score and yet equally top the fan vote..should this girl be announced as one of the top 15, or should she be announced the final spot as the fan vote? This dilemma can happen to Rachel as well, being a top contender now from prelims as well as the fan vote.

      • Completely agree! Ariella was a contender both through scores (prelims), through fan votes or through Trump card. Of course, the 16th placer of the prelims is more deserving to advance to the semis versus the 2nd placer of the fanvote. I believe this was the MUO thinking of awarding Ariella the fanvote slot.

        And yes this can happen again with Rachel… it did happen with Pia also (in the Top 15, Top 10 always topping the fanvote). Basta nothing to worry. In whatever format if you are the best and destined to win you’ll always go through.

    • Same opinion tau Adrian feeling ko nga lang fanvote si Rachel like Ariella pero hanggang Top10 lang kakayanin ni Rachel di tulad ni Ariella.

  10. Top 4 ASIA AFRICA OCEANIA

    1. THAILAND
    2. SOUTH AFRICA
    3. AUSTRALIA
    4. TANZANIA

    WILD CARDS FROM THE REGION
    INDONESIA
    PHILIPPINES
    INDIA

    • hahaha kunwari lang yan cya kontrabida ni Rachel pero pudpod na daliri nyan kakavote for Rachel. Aminin… samahan mo na din ng dasal. MU 2017 is Philippines!!!!

      • Hahahaha
        Ayoko na kasi umasa besh pero sana magkatotoo ang hula ko dati dito nung wala pang finals ng Miss Earth sabi ko parang ganito mangyayari.

        ME – WINNER
        MI – CLAPPER
        MW – CLAPPER
        MU – WINNER

        Di pa nasisira ang pattern ng hula ko. Hahaha. Pero tagilid talaga ako kay Rachel ngayon. Kulang talaga sa diligan ni Gov.

  11. On a positive side, this is a glide path for the candidate who did so well in the preliminary. Parang give away na Yung Corona!

    Bakit kamo?

    What if sa prelim ranking Yung highest bet ng Europe eh nasa number 30 pala then highest bet ng Africa eh NASA number 45 pala then come finals night Yung talagang Top3 sa preliminary sila na talaga ang itinakda. Formality na lang tong coronation night!

  12. ayon sa board
    next year MU 2018 will have a new format
    each continent group will have their own pageant MissUniverse Americas, Miss Universe Europe, Miss Universe AsiaOceaniaAfrica.
    each continent winner will fly to Las Vegas to
    compete for MU 2018 finals

  13. Regarding sa format na toh – patulan ko na, kahit di pa naman sure if true.

    Medyo OK ako dito. Nangangapa pa obviously si IMG and this is one siguro of the many experiments nila.

    I don’t like comments na “may mas deserving na girls” keme. Kahit papano, may slots parin naman for everyone e…up to 4 lang yan or 16 pa, if you’ve performed well enough at well-rounded pageant girl ka talaga, papasok ka.

    In whatever format, hindi sistema ng Miss Universe ang may problema kung hindi makakapasok ang isang kandidata sa Top 16. Eh kung gusto pala natin ng “deserving”, edi sana pinoprotesta natin muna yung voting paandar para makapasok…Mas di ako natutuwa doon.

    Yun lang 🙂 sana Monday morning na!

    Btw, kung 8AM sa ABS ang miss U, does that mean na around 4PM sa Vegas ang coronation? Sana naman may maayos na telecast ang Miss U. Nabother ako sa prelims na di napalabas e

  14. I dont like this but Im not worried. Kahit bali-baliktarin lilitaw at lilitaw ang deserving Top 3/Winner… And I believe Rachel is way way way up there on her own merits. She does not even need our votes.

    IMG/endeavor wants Europe represented in the top 16 and a chance even to progress in the deeper rounds. Perhaps IMG wants to exploit more opportunities in the region: fashion, modeling, what have you…

  15. Feeling ko, pasok naman na sa Top 16 si Rachel. Medyo mataas ang kompiyansa ko sa kanya. Kung aabot sya hanggang dulo, excited ako makita. Depende kasi talaga sa magiging look/styling at makeup nya. Hit or miss kasi si ate mo. May pic sya recently at ang harsh ng contour nya – ang punto ko, slight mistakes lang, medyo nagiging off sya.

    Di ako fan ni Maria, pero di madedeny na malinis talaga sya tignan. Face talaga nagdala at skin – kaso mo, same same lang lagi mukha ni ate. Kaso weak talaga pasarela nya. Di ko ma-gets vibes ko sa kanya. May pics na winner ang datingan ng lola mo…kaso pag naaalala ko rampa nya, el tocuyo talaga e…

    May bago akong discovery…si Ms. CHILE! Ganda pala nya! Sana makapasok.

    Nalulungkot ako na di gaano lumutang si KOREA…pero sana sa mga susunod na editions, ganto ulit ang mga Ms. Korea…tanned at fierce ang make-up…ganda ni ate mo e…Mutya Datul…still hoping na sana makapasok si cutiepie…

    Nawawala na katuyutan ni VENEZUELA. Di na sya mukhang tita. Pag ito nakapasok, may kalalagyan to sa final 5.

    Ewan ko kung bakit andaming pumapatol sa mga disqualification chismis sa Miss U. Di ko gets talaga. Hahaha! Hayaan na sila!

    And sa gown ni Rachel, di ko pa nakikita yung totoong final gown. Ang saya sana kung sabay sabay tayong maa-amaze sa gown nya…pero since na-expose na, move on na sana. Ok na din na napakita na ng malinaw – kasi pano kung di nag-advance sa top 10 si Rachel? Edi di nakita? HAHAHA! Di naman ako nagpapaka-nega…pero alam mo yun? Wag nang patulan!

    Yun lang. Nagiging regular na ako na tiga-comment dito..haha!

  16. If that’s the case, there would be 37 from Asia-Africa-Pacific, 30 from the Americas (if this includes the Caribbean), and 26 from Europe who would compete for 3 spots each designated territory and 1 from the online voting. Plus, 4 wild card finalists. I think the latter 4, naconstruct yung idea na yan to intensify yung top 16 announcement. Which is nakakaexcite at nakakakaba tbh.

    Let’s see how this plays out. Though the odds of the EU girls qualifying for the semis is quite high, let them have it. Mataas naman ang possibility na yung apat na wild card galing lang din yan sa Americas at sa Asia, either 2-2 or 3-1, vice versa. I’m not actually worried for our candidate. Though her, qualifying in the semis through online vote is highly unlikely (but still possible), I see her being called out among the wild card finalist.

    To be honest, lugi ang Americas. Sabihin na nating mas marami nga ang Asia, pero yung performing at stand out, nabibilang lang sa daliri. Unlike sa kanila (specially South America), kung hindi ganito ang format, may chance pa silang mangalahati sila sa Top 16. Just sayin’.

    • Yung unang gown ba is the same gown na suot ni ivy aguas when she was introduced as lily cruz (gold episode) ni lagyan lang collar at cape.

  17. YES and NO.

    Yes because at least every continent is well represented I mean di ba parang minsan sinasabi natin “nu ba yan.. walang african.. walang black.. walang asian…” something like that. we give opportunity to other candidates,,

    BUT

    No because… let’s say somebody from Europe or let’s say Africa enters the top 16.. pero MAS may deserving sakanya na hindi nakapasok sa kanyang ‘category’?

    what if all of the strongest contestants are from Asia. pero 3 lang ang ipapasok.. di ba? so not that sure if I like it or not. but one thing is for sure… if this is super duper confirmed, lahat kailangan mag step up lalo. wag pa kampante.

  18. Napansin ko lang ha? Parang mga Pilipino lang ang natutuwa sa performance ni Rachel Peters not just a prelim but the whole since her day 1. Panu ba naman kasi, di pa naka move on sa Trump Era ang KF. Kung akala nyu pang top 5 cliber si Peters, well not for an American eye! Ngayon pa ba at ang 70% ng judgement mangagaling sa closed door interviews at attitude/personality assessment ng MUO!

    para sabihin ko sa inyo sa mga kampante na pang Top3 si Peters, well nangangamba ako na kahit Top15 di siya makakapasok. Don na tau sa super stunning figura nya. Sa english aussie accent nya. Sa magaganda nyang gown. Sa super flawless infinity walk niya. PERO ANG NAPAKA IMPORTANTE NA SANGKAP NAWALA NIYA.

    PERSONALITY!!!!!!!!!

    Her strategy is very Trump Era! Know were you peak!!! Pero ngayon iba na ang criteria ng bagong may ari!!! Not about prelim competitipn anymore!!!! YOU SHOULD BE AT YPUR BEST AT ALL TIMES!!!!!

    DI USO ANG GAMEPLAN SA IMG!!!!! ALL OUT DAPAT!!!

    • I don’t know what you’re talking about, or perhaps you are really not reading the Latin sites, BUT Rachel’s performance (especially in SS) was widely celebrated. A Colombian magazine even featured Rachel on its front cover, together with Laura and Demi.

      • Exactly james. Nakaagaw pansin lang sa kanila si Rachel dahil sa swimsuit bod neto. Kung hindi pa mag swimsuit round di pa siya mapansin. Kulang sya sa connection with audience kaya nakukulangan sa kanya ng personality ang mga taong nag aassess neto mula sa MUO.

      • Also, how do you know that Rachel doesn’t have a good relationship with the MUO staff? Andun ka sa Las Vegas? Come on. In fact, in one of her earlier posts, Rachel had a playful picture with one of her chaperones. The staff member was so game to pose for the IG photo. If that’s not evidence of a good working relationship with the staff, I don’t know what is?

    • Baklah – how can u say na hindi pang top 5 and caliber ni Rachel, American ka rin ba. LOL Kaloka tong loser na to hahahahaha

      Just so let u know all out si Rachel since day 1 hanggang sa makoronahan siya, itaga mo sa bato. Kaloka tong loser na to hahahahaha

      • Nakukulangan ng connection sa kanya ang mga amiga kung taga MUO. Alam nyu ba na sila ay kasama sa pagpili ng semi? Kaya nga naligwak si El tucuyo last time kasi wala siyang pakisama at walang connection sa mga backstage people ng MUO!!! More on personality at charisma hanap nila ngayon hindi lang ganda, figura, o pasarela.

    • Huh? You agree that Rachel performed well in the SS but you maintain that Rachel didn’t perform well overall? What was so horrible about her EG presentation that negated her amazing SS performance? And sorry ha, I don’t know if you saw the prelims, kasi mukhang hindi, but her EG presentation was so sublime, no pageant betty movements. Even her pasarela wasn’t too swayish like Venezuela.

      And regarding your assertion that it’s (sic) “not about prelim competition anymore”, anong pinagsasabi mo eh si Haiti and France ba were favorites from the start? Hindi ba si Mariam, Tovar, Chalita, Brazil and Maxine ang darlings of the press, ang “best at all times?” Remind me who were MU and First Runner-up again last year?

      Don’t me.

    • Embrace yourself, kawawa ka naman. Ginagawa mo lahat ng pagpapakababa sa sarili, para lang mapansin ka ng mga tao. What you need is LOVE. I don’t believe na may sira ang mga mata mo, you see it that Rachel is really outstanding, if not, 1 of the few who are hailed.

  19. Mas dehado ang americas dahil nasa kanila ang mga nagmamagaling na mga kandidata.
    Pero Ok na rin dahil ang importante ay nakuha na agad ang pinakamaganda at magaling.
    Huwag ng bigyan ng slot yung mga kamag-anak, malapit sa kusina at namumulitika hihihi cherette lang.
    Basta ang importante ay nasa Top 5 ang Philippines 🙂

  20. SUSME, AT SAANG BUKAL NAMAN NANGGALING ANG CHISMAK NA ITO AT GANON NA KUNG MAKABULWAK?

    MAY PA CREDIBLE CREDIBLE SOURCE PA KAYONG NALALAMAN DYAN! E ULTIMO MGA NATIONAL DIRECTORS HNDI ALAM ANG MGA YAN, KUNG MERON MAN UNANG MAKAALAM NYAN DAPAT MGA FRANCHISE HOLDERS MUNA GAYA NI STELLA, OSMEL, DEBORAH, LUPITA AND THE REST DAHIL SILA DAPAT MAPAGSABIHAN NYAN AT DAPAT MANGALING MISMO SA MU ORGANIZATION HINDI SA KUNG KANINONG DILANG HITAD LAMANG NA NGANGATI KUNG DI MAKAPAGSAMBULAT NG TISIMIS, AT ITO NAMANG MGA BLOGGERS NA EWAN A PATOL DIN NG PATOL, AT SUPER PRESS RELEASE KAAGAD.

    IN THE FIRST PRIZE, ESTI PLACE PALA, BAKIT KAILANGAN PA NG MU NA IBUKILYA ANG MGA PLANO NILA SA PAGPILI NG TOP 16, E NUNG KAPANAHONAN NGA NI TRUMP DI NAMAN SINABI BEFORE HAND KUNG PAANO PIPILIIN ANG MGA FINALIST. SAKA TANGA BA ANG MUO NA ISAMBULAT LAHAT NG MGA YAN SAMANTALANG ALAM NILANG MAGKICREATE YAN NG UPROAR!

    AYAN O, DI PA MAN, SAMOT SARI NA ANG MGA WILD OPINIONS AT HYSTERICAL NA LAHAT!

    HAY NAKU MAHANAP NA NGA SINA CRISPIN AT BASILIO!

  21. Ginawa ng reality TV show.
    Wouldn’t be surprised pag naging parang America’s Next Top Model na maging format niyan
    In the future.

  22. Héctor Joaquín Colón-González is feeling excited.
    4 hrs ·

    Héctor Joaquín BLOG EXCLUSIVE + The New Miss Universe Format ✔️ CONFIRMED ✔️
    This EXCLUSIVE is from a reliable source.

    3 candidates from each region are selected based on scores plus one spot for the girl with the most votes in that region.

    Then there are 4 remaining wild card spots from around the world.
    ✔️ 4 Girls from the Americas.
    ✔️ 4 Girls from Europe.
    ✔️ 4 from Girls from Asia, Africa and Pacific.
    ✔️ 4 Wild Cards


    So 3 delegates via popular votes, it is.

    More cruel than I first thought.

    If this is the case, South Africa, and the ASEAN trio of Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia have high chances of making the cut for the region, unless some other countries like Australia and India sneak in.

  23. Oh ha… Very strategically… Business coverage wise… it means every country/regions should participate in voting to save their favorite girl in the region. Dahil mostly Asian countries ang nag do dominate sa online voting (Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam are on the top). it is more like the perfect battle of beauty and brain and stage skills

  24. Seems like Asia has been put at a disadvantage. Africa should have been put with Europe perhaps, if not on it’s own. I’m guessing MUO is trying to give Europe more of a presence in the semi finals as they’ve not had a great presence when the first cut is made. I’m wondering if Russia will be put with Europe or Asia? What about the Middle East? Will they be included with Asia as well? It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. I’ll give it a chance. I don’t like it but I’m open to having my mind changed if I see it was a good idea

  25. So 4 spots are reserved for each group, while the last 4 spots (including one by popular votes) are reserved for other high performing delegates not able to make it in the guaranteed continental group quotas. Therefore, the number of spots a continental group can claim is limited to around 4-8.

    This is a game changer for Asia and the Americas, but a huge favor for Europe and Africa. This entices Europe and Africa to send better delegates, and forces Asia and the Americas to catastrophic stress level pressures.

    In sum, while this is another way to enforce the diversity theme of IMG’s direction, Ultimately, it is a marketing ploy for Miss Universe to win over Miss World bailiwicks in Europe and Africa.

    • Perfect word. “Mairaos” na lng. Napansin ko din yan right from the very start considering all aspects until this moment…

  26. just make sure that the 4 wild cards are also diverse enough ( we cannot have all of them Latina or else the semifinals line-up will look like MU 2004 all over again which was a travesty … that was when MUO decided that the MU org should have a say in the preliminary judging in combination with the preliminary judges

  27. this format doesn’t seem ideal… There’s gonna be so many girls who will get robbed… 4 girls from three continents combined?! (ie. Asia, Africas and pacific) WTF!!!

  28. Kung totoo ito, maaaring isa lang (at most two) sa tatlong bansa (Thailand, Indonesia at Philippines) ang makakapasok for Girls from Asia, Africa and Pacific. Gulo ito kung sakali.

  29. Ano ‘to investment? Kailangan ng diversification?

    What are they trying to achieve? Equal opportunity? Nag-peak na ba ng Todo ang mga powerhouse countries na Alam na yung formula Kaya kailangang ibahin Ang format?

  30. Stupid idea! if they wanted to go this way they didnt have to tell the public. This will cause major uproar to hardcore fans.

  31. ha!
    it sounds really complicated

    If they go this route, this is more equitable:

    4 women from the Americas.
    4 women from Europe.
    4 women from Asia
    4 women Africa
    4 women from Pacific/Oceana plus wild cards.

    i say asians, africans, pacific islanders/oceanan, new zealanders, australians
    should start petitioning, complaining, and making noise now!!! lol

    the number of candidates in relation to the size of region, number of countries and population is really really lopsided.

    i believe miss universe is slowly fading into oblivion and irrelevance
    and it all started this year, 2017. there are so many red flags

    • imagine, isang group lang ang asia + africa + pacific! combine natin lahat ilang countries yan?
      tas may 4 from europe? ilang countries lang meron ang europe!

      oh well.

      • yeah, it’s very weird
        even the americas encompasses 2 continents (north and south america, including the caribbean region)

        i can’t even rationalize this

    • I totally agree with you. it is more equitable and fair. They pick top 4 in each continent for a total of 20 then all their scores will be back to zero as they start to compete and they will be scored not based on their continent anymore.

  32. nakakaloka. ano ang nakita ng MUO na magandang dahilan kung bat nila gagawin ang format nayan if ever? hayaan na sa intercon yan por pa vor.

  33. The number identified with death appears 4x? Wow, MU is killing itself. We have seen some signs during the prelims.

    MUO needs help!

    • haha, we had the same thought and almost posted at the same time 🙂
      but seriously the prelim venue was sort of forgive-able. then the inconsistency
      of the photo shoots, some did yamaymay, some did no make-up, some had the suite
      shoot, glam shots ..etc…but none across the board with all of the candidates…

      they are trying out so many things in a short 2 week period
      they are loosing their identity and focus
      and we are witnessing it in real time
