  1. So, USA came to join the group; I thought for awhile she won’t be coming which would have been very strange… I am surprised that there is no Thailand, no Indonesia, no France, no Germany, no Australia

  2. Demi Peters is very miss universe. Tamang tama lang ang kanyang pagkapanalo. Hairstyle pa lang, winner na winner na.

  3. post-trump winners all ! Thank God Pia did not compete prior to 2015… MUO next chapter starts with Pia and she set the bar

  4. Demi proved to be every inch fit for the MU crown.. She’s a modern day beauty queen , both inspirational ans aspirational.. And I thank u.. Anu daw.. Lol

  5. Good thing to know is that Pia’s MU strategy worked — quite confidence, being nice to candidates, knowing your face and what angles/make up work best for you, and showing tons of genuine personality on finals night. She never lost track of her goals and treated the three weeks in Vegas as different stages of a job interview.

    I saw the same strategy from Demi and look where it got here. Now let’s hope the next MP girl takes advantage of these lessons.

    • Dan,

      From many accounts Pia was actually quite reserved, if not aloof, during the competition. She only mingled with her roommate, Myanmar, Malaysia, and China.

      From what I understand, the reason many ladies ran to Ariadna was because they didn’t know Pia very well at all. On the other hand, Ariadna was more outgoing.

      Not that it matters. But most people know Pia in person is not actually the most outgoing—-although she was very nice to us fans and when she has her crown and sash on. Personality lang niya.

      Anyway, she did everything else right in Vegas like Demi – agreed!

      • Yep, candidates who has the mentality that this is a job interview (albeit a long one) are usually the ones that get noticed by the MU org. Of course it doesn’t hurt if that girl’s pretty and photogenic.

  6. Buti naman walang mga futah na latina!!!! Lalo na si Colombia na nganga ng nganga at Lu Sierra na ubod ng pait ang mukha!!!!! talagang magwawala ako sa Luneta kung andon silang dalawa!!!!!

  7. Miss World will be held here in phils this 2018!!!!! At luto na pala ito ni Arnold at Hulya na ipapanalo tayo in home soil!!! A strategy of MWO to make Miss World brand a powerhouse brand in the Philippines to overtake Miss Universe popularity!!! And guess what??? Laura Lehmann has been (tang ina nakalimutan ko ang tamang word basta para syang MJ ng Miss Universe sabi parang alay muna bago mag success si Pia!!) para di halata ung pagkakaluto…. Anu say nyu???

    • A “sacrificial lamb’? Gusto ko ‘yung pagmumura after malimutan ang correct term. Hihihi! Nice one, Baklah. It werked for me. Napatawa mo ako. Hahaha!

      Sa isang banda, hindi kaya ito fake news? What do you think, dear readers (pa-borrow, Tito Norms)?

      • Hahahah “Feeding Sheep” yung naiisip k0 kanina sa totoo lang!!! nyeta!!! “Sacrificial Lamb” lang pala!!!!

      • Okay na rin ang ‘feeding sheep’! P’wedeng i-adopt ni Wiki. Kaloka. Hahaha!

      • ANA WINTER NA PUTA ANG INA NA LAWYER DAW AT MALAKAS SA NBI, BAKIT DI NA LANG IKAW MAGREPRESENT NG PINAS SA MW NEXT YEAR? DI BA DREAM YAN NG PUTATSING MONG INA NA PINAGMANAHAN MO NG KABOBOBOHAN?

    • Totoo ba yan? May willing bang magsponsor ng MW dito? Parang mas in demand pa hosting ng MU dito kaysa MW kaya nakakashock naman kung gusto na nilang maghost tayo ng MW next year.

      • Sana totoo kasi title din yun kahit luto man yan!!! Char!!! Narinig ko lang sa mga chismax ng mga alipores ng A&Q!!!

      • Oh kaya pala. Sana nga totoo. I want another blue crown. Wala na akong paki sa delicadeza. Di naman nakakain yun. Char hahaha. 😂😂

    • At ang Miss Supranational eh inaawitan naman daw ang Cebu from the grapevine.

      And speaking, Yung kupit bahay eh nagtaray sa kanyang Livestream Kaya nakuyog tuloy siya ng mga kababayan niya!

  8. Stalked Catriona’s Instagram and I noticed that she unfollowed Jonas, Ma Ruffa and Pia. She follows Maria of Thailand, Demi, Ariadna (Pia’s 1st runner up) and Olivia. Confirmed na she is under KF now. I wonder what happened between her and Aces.

    • That’s my question too!! Sana wag babuyin ang teeth mygohhhd!! Kung nag-quit siya ng camp, kahit independent siya feeling ko kaya na naman niya. Para yung kay Sirene pero bigger chance niya magsucceed. Pwede din siya mag-take na lang classes dun kay Lu Sierra, dagdag points sa MU. Yung mga trinain ni Lu Sierra sa New York lahat naging runners-up or nag place. Kulang lang sila sa facial beauty kaya wala pa naproduce na winner. Complete package na si Catriona, polishing lang naman kailangan. Dami latino at asian pageant forums na si Catriona ang topic at supppperrrr early winner pick na siya agad wala pa announcement na mag join siya sa BBP this year. I have high hoper for Catriona.

      • Baka nga madam wanted her to go independent as she’a still mad with Jonas not pushing for Araneta Coliseum to be the venue of Miss Universe 2016.

    • Why would you unfollow someone on IG just because you’re changing camps!?! Pinoys are so childish when it comes to social media. hihihi…

    • I am not into Instagram, hence I was not aware of this lately. Kaloka kung totoo nga ito. Just what Anawindang said here, Catriona will make it regardless of any camp affiliations she will get into. She has the utter package. However, if I may advise, this is still not the best year for Catriona to join BBP and represent the country in Miss Universe. Philippines is too young to bring the crown back to its glory. There is still an American continent in the bag for the Mikimoto crown!

      Catriona is still young to represent our country in Miss Universe. She has to take it a little slowly. I am sure her torch will still keep her fire burning by the time she is destined to join BBP and eventually win Miss Universe.

      • @ Ana – I still think she’ll be ripe for BBP 2019 when she turns 25. Basta continuous lang yung kaniyang platform/advocacy. I really want her to be crowned MUP then eventually MU 🙂

      • I hope CatGray will join in 2019 or 2020. I want Nicole Guerrero to win BB Universe 2018.

      • she better join Bbp when she turns 25. I have a gut feel ibang mikimoto crown sya papadala if ( madame will send her to MI if she joins 2018)1

      • Other mikimoto crown?..

        Well Nicole is related to the 1st Filipina who wore a Mikimoto crown. 🙂

      • Jen – Sad thing about being ‘ripe’ is that hinog ka na.. malapit ka nang mabulok.. (Yan ang sabi ng speaker sa isang training na na attendan ko) Dapat the perfect timing is Pahinog ka na.. para pag salang mo na like as MU Winner – hinog ka na.

        but oo nga I checked her instagram! Wala nga sila Jonas, Pia and other aces! pero wala din ang KF peeps sa following niya. hmmm something juicy!!!

  9. Stunning ladies.

    Miss Universe activity such as this is a good indication that MUO cannot just ignore the Philippines being the best Miss Universe fanbase in the world. It’s our pride that MUO chose Philippines as its premier destination after Demi’s crowning. I am pretty sure that the candidates are now enjoying their visit here. I am also guessing that there is a talk that the next edition of the annual pageant will be held here. After all, the Miss Universe’s edition after last is still considered the best edition in the history of Miss Universe.

    This makes MWO envy a lot.

    • Mommy, I’ve heard na binayaran daw ng “FrontRaw” ang MU for promotion sa business nila. Malaki fanbase ng MU at may kung anik-anik na monkey business yung FrontRaw kaya opportunity nila yan. Kanina pinag-pose sila Iris dun sa binebenta nilang placebo medicine pills by FrontRaw. Ganiyan yan sila ang nagbayad sa MU para i-promote yung company nila, sideline lang yung tourism ng DOT PH. Alam ko galing sa drug money ang yaman ng FrontRaw na yan. Grupo yan nung baklang Raymond Gusherez at Timang Yap. Diba sakanila ang Revelous The Palash club? Sila nagpapaikot ng droga doon sa mga celebrities at boytoys nila, milyon dolyares ang kinikita. Sex sa mga foreigner boytoys at droga ang ganaps at hobby nila. Yan ang reputation ng FrontRaw. Kahit wala ka nose sa background nung president ng FrontRaw, one look at masasabi mo na baklang dapat itokhang talaga. May brains sila, eloquent kaya yan ang skill na gamit nila pang cover up sa kababalaghang ginagawa.

      Ang summary eh ang FrontRaw is like a scam but not really a scam dahil may mga pang “front” sila na products na binebenta like yung mga placebo na medicine nila at organize ng event kuno. Yan ang dapat tinotokhang ni dutirti mga big fish, pero may money at influence kaya patuloy ang ligaya ng mga bakla. Lol. And that’s the chika for today, mommy. Ewan ko ba bakit ang daming lulong sa pilipinas na-expose lang sila lalo dahil kay d30 pero dati pa yan laganap ata. Nag “rerevel” literally talaga sila dun sa the palash pool klab nung Timang Yap na out of the country ngayon dahil tinotokhang talaga silang mga bakla ngayon.

      Yun lang. yan ang mga na-observe ko after connecting the dots sa social media. Sherlock Holmes lang ang peg. Tanong lang, ano ba feeling ng drugs drugs na yan? Di ba mas masaya pag sober at feel mo talaga ang moment? Ang hilig ng mga pinoy na baklang hamog sa Manila puro drugs at sex at drugs at sex. I could imagine na pag naging lifestyle muna ang ganon, parang ang sad 😞 ng life mygohd!! Eyniwaste, that’s all I’m going to thay. Kaloka ang haba ng message ko sayo, mommy. Ngayon lang ata kita nakausap. Sayo ko minold ang alter ego ko, sa opposite mo. Kapagod din kaloka. Para may split personality sa every comment ko. Eyniwaste again, yun lang at goodbye forever mommy Ana Winter season na! Buhay ka hanggang February. 😍🤯 🤩💅🏻🥠 ❄️⛄️☃️ ⚡️

      • My fiery goddaughter, Anawindang.

        I am a bit shocked and awed by your tidbit, being accusatory and adversarial. As a precaution, I advise that when you release such a piece, you’d say “according to a very reliable source”, so you’d avoid any pain of persecution and prosecution. Libel is avoided if a writer refers a certain source whether that source is real or imaginary, so long as it won’t come out as true as fact from the writer him/herself. I love you my dear, hence this piece of advice. Nevertheless, it still appears to me that you just read that fact from somewhere. Well, such buzz is no longer new to the elite circle of swags and fags, ‘no? There were some blind items about that long before. I don’t know if that is still true these days. I also don’t know about ‘FrontRaw’, its business and purpose. We just have to be thankful that it/they sponsored the organization to bring the Miss Universe court to our country.

        I have been following your comments, my dear. They are all entertaining. I also knew that you coined your pseudonym from me, and it’s alright. That only means that I am worth noticed here. There also came out LaiLaAnaWinter pseudonym here, and I think that is cool. After all, mine is neither copyrighted nor is a trademark, but a plain pseudonym coined from my all-time fashion guru—Ana Wintour.

        I’ll exchange comments with you here some other time. Let us enjoy this space. Let’s enjoy our freedom of the press because this blog is a good marketplace of pageant ideas.

        Love yah,
        Mamey

      • Fan na ako! Pls gawa ka ng blog mag enjoy kami hehe… makita mo man doon sa crazy club! Kaya nga napansin ko the guy who handles a portion of newspaper is very anti du30 kc yun nga co own din ng isang klub. Sana masampolan! It’s crazy, I used to use those when I was abroad but u wake up ff day drinking lots of water to get out of ur system cuz u can’t function. Crazy to think member ng lgbt cla

      • Truelili ba yan vex, nawindang naman ako hihihi
        Kaya nga i wonder about frontrow + Jonas to sponsor an MU event here kaya medyo napanganga talaga ako sa kakayahan financially ng frontrow + Jonas pa hihihi
        Anong link ni Jonas sa Frontrow???
        May mga druglink ba hihihi
        What about yung 11 people na nahuli sa BGC, may link din ba sa Frontrow and Mama Jonas hihihi 🙂
        Just asking 🙂

      • FrontRow’s product is more on glutathione. injectables. They are a networking or direct selling company who has a lot of members in the Philippines. Yes, they are the sponsor of this trip.. but the truth is – ang distributors/members ng FrontRow ay mayayaman. yung tipong maraming extrang pera so they shell out big money to bring the MU girls here and also mapromot ung brand nila.

      • Nakita ko ang marketing video ng Frontrow. Mga vekis ba din sila mga veks? hihihi. I can tell one is very very veks…hihihi Cuties naman pero there is definitely something fishy about this FrontRow sponsorship hanash..I hope Miss U vetted these folks before they signed.

    • The negative side lang was that it did not in any how showcased the culture and beauty of the Philippines…It still felt very Vegas. No feel that it was done outside the US

    • Naku wag nmn kasi pag nagjoin si cat at sya ang bbpu at manalo ng mu2018 eh sasabihin na nmn ng mga shunggiterang shupitbahay na niluto kahit deserving pa ni cat 😂😂😂
