  1. Guess nyo sino to.

    Bat di to sumali ng Binibining Pilipinas noon? Tingnan nyo mas maganda pa sya kay Sarah Jane Paez. Sayang talaga

  2. Totoo po ba na si SMA bet ipamana kay Venus Raj ang BPCI pag nag retire na si siya? Pero ang MUO balak kay Pia Wurtzbach ipasa ang ND title once SMA retire na? If mangyayari etech. BPCI will lost MU franchise and left with MI and more, while Pia will establish a new organisation as MUPO. Kung mangyayari to separated na ang National Pageants ng Big4 dabah. Ang galing ng ganito. Ilan taon na po ba si SMA? Bat di sila nagreretire ni Osmel? Antatanda na nila! Ganun ba talaga ang mga Latino/a? Mashunda na nagtatrabaho paren!!

    • Mukhang hindi Baklah, hindi nya ibibigay kay Venus Raj pero magkakaroon ng posisyon si Venus if ever. Either ibigay nya din sa isang araneta ang duties. Siyempre tatak na yan ng Araneta or ibenta nya sa mas mayaman.

  3. I saw one potential Bb. contender. the 5’7 daughter of John Estrada and Janice De Belen.

    If Catriona will join Bb. she might win the MI crown. it fits her personality more.

  4. Norman, I wish you asked her why she UNFOLLOWED her Mommy Jonas, Pia and some A&Q people… That’s really I was curious about knowing.

  5. Bakit Hindi Pd mag comment sa taas.. Nway, to catriona, wag na sumali pa sa bbp 2018 2019 or kung anu mang year.. Put pageantry behind u and seek other worthwhile endeavors.. Take a cue from janicel.. Afterall, ur personality does not fit the MU mold.. Etc.. So pls awat na. ..the same goes true to the pajares sisters and those similarly placed or situated..

      • I agree with you TITA. If it’s their dream, they have every right to pursue it. And besides, why should anyone be criticized for ever wanting to represent their country, especially if these women give their time and hard work, in addition to the personal sacrifices they make, just to be able to compete for that honor? These candidates should be encouraged and praised — instead of being belittled and bashed.

      • I agree but …
        I just feel for Catriona
        Imagine the pressure due to high expectations from the fans . It takes a heart of steel to do this … especially in the Philippines .
        I hope Cat joins though . And if the pageant is held in the Philippines and she wins , I won’t feel ashamed at all… not at all.

      • @Fabian, yes you are right and I get what you’re saying. It’s a big decision for any candidate to join, especially the high profile candidates like Catriona where expectations are so high and the pressure immense. But only she knows her comfort level and only she can take that step. It takes courage, nerves of steel and lots of hard work to compete in Bb Pilipinas. That is why I feel saddened when girls are belittled for even trying.

    • That’s for her to decide veks. Who are you to make decisions for these girls. hihihi… Eh kung ang boyfie nga nya eh suportahan kata ang peg eh kaw ano ka ba for Cat to listen? hihihi

    • It’s only my two cents.. It was not meant to bash or belittle these ladies from chasing their dreams.. This is a free world.. They have evry right to join and I have the right to speak.. Peace.

  6. Wishful thinking…. Kris Janson and Yvethe Santiago.

    Alam ko overage na sila… kung pwde lang sana

    • I like Kris Janson.
      Yveth NO – she is in the league of Laura, Valerie, Catriona, Jamie no fire in their personalities

      • Hiyang hiya naman sila sa firing personality ni Kris Janson. Hahahahaha
        One of the most boring Binibini queen si Kris Janson teh. Maganda lang feslak nya and that’s it!! Have you seen her swimsuit walk? Her q&a?? nanood ka ba ng performance ni Kris Janson??? jusko paki review mo teh kasi ibang iba sa tvc nya ng myra kasi ilang take sya don.

        kkkk

      • Kris Janson has a very striking facial beauty! napakaganda at nagsusumigaw ang photogenic look nya. Pero once she opens her mouth, she sounds nervous and lost. She lacks personality kaya kitang kita ang weak swimsuit performance nya. Pero i would say na ang excellent sya sa pusod hair nya sa eg performance nya. However, she is the most successful placer in her batch 2014 being 2nd RU in Miss Intercontinental is enough for her .

    • Yvethe is still 23. She can still join MWP, ME, or Mutya if she wants too. She can still revive her pageant status.

  7. My choices for BBP 2018

    Fabian Reyes – Masyadong mamaru dito. Lahat na ng bagay alam niya! Pati grammar chinecheck nya, pati comments mo pupunahin niya, ultimo choice of words. Baka pag sumali siya pati role ng judges and hosts kunin na niya. And pati yung sagot ng mga kalaban niya, icocorrect niya. Oh diba all in one! Hahaha!

    Anawindang – Siya yung tipong pag di nanalo or pag di ka nya bet gagawan ka na nya ng milyon na chismis at intriga. Expect mong tatapunan nya ng putik ang iyong pangalan pag di siya ang nanalo.

    Angelo Reyes – Opposite ng Ms. Congeniality. mala bianca guidotti ang performance pero mag aaway sila ni bong700 on stage. Sapawan at gayahan ng pasarela at gown silang dalawa. Pagkasagot ni bong700 sa Q&A sisigaw siya ng UGOK, NANAY MONG PUTA, TAPOS MAG DIDIALECT. ETC. HAHAHAHAHA!

    bong700 – nemesis ni Angelo Reyes. Magaaway lang silang dalawa whole duration ng pageant.

    Ana Winter – pa-classy ang peg. Pag sumagot naman si Angelo Reyes ng Q&A sasabihin niya… Dear Angelo, (tapos insert story na patama kay Angelo). Hahahaha

    Ang peg ng “2 Reyeses’ ay mala PAJARES sisters. Kala mo di sila related pero mukhang related naman or iisa lang! hahaha!

    • Barbie , I don’t know where the hell u r coming from . I never check anyone’s grammar . It’s the content and the level of understanding that I am more concerned abt .
      Sinabi ko lang ‘oh yeah, I’m from Missouri ‘ , sasabihin mo na taga- Missouri na ako At nagmanayabang paraw ako.
      Tse , Humanap ka ng kausap mo hihihi

      • Fabian, Para kang Lu Sierra dito! Masyado kang concerned sa lahat ng bagay parang lahat ng kausap mo ginagawa mong tanga at ikaw matalino! Parang ikaw yung class president na intrimitida! Tse ka din! Bakit mo kailangan sabihin na you’re from Missouri. What’s the point? Diba nagmamayabang ka naman talaga? Wag ka ngang pa humble jan! Hahaha!

      • OMG BArbie
        It’s pointless to argue with u if u do not understand what I’m trying to tell u.
        Maaga ka Sigurong kumire kaya reading comprehension mo limitado.
        Literal ba namang I-interpret ang sinabi ko.
        And even if I meant it literally ..that I was from Missouri ( which I’m not ) , how was it pag yayabang ? Pati isip mo , isip alipin pa rin hanggang ngayon .

      • Barbie , ikaw nga ang atrevida dito e.
        Pag against na sa sinasabi mo , ang peg mo ‘’stupido’ At shut up ‘ kaagad .

      • Mayabang ka talaga Fabian, feeling matalino at mapagmataas, wag ako! May pa reading comprehension ka pa at understanding. Obvious naman na binabaliktad mo ko at binabaluktot. Sinong baliw ang magsasabi na taga missouri siya tapos aamin sa huli na di pala totoo yun. Eh di ikaw!

        First of all I don’t care where the hell you are from, what is your financial status (for all I know baon2 ka pala sa utang), and how smart you are kasi kung totoo naman mga inaasta mo dito, di mo na kailangan ipagmayabang yan.

      • Talaga Fabian, stupido at shut up agad. Parang di naman! Never akong nanglait ng tao dito except for you kasi ikaw nag simula. Sinasabi ko lang na tigilan pag sumusobra na at below the belt. Lalo na yung pangaapi ni ANGELO REYES kay Norman. Below the belt na wala man lang sumisita sa inyo? Makes me think bakit ka biglang nagagalit sakin, at biglang nawala si ANGELO REYES. Hmmmmmm, may connect kaya?

      • Barbie, Why don’t you review your entries?
        U have been bullying every single one who says anything against your opinion .
        Parang ikaw lang ang tama.
        Sinabi ko lang na ‘oh yeah , I’m from Missouri ‘, mayabang na raw ako.
        E bat pag sinabi Kong ‘oh yeah , I was born yesterday ‘ , mayabang din ako dahil nakapagsusulat na ako kahit kahapon lang ako ipinanganak?
        Barbie , lahat naman tinituruan ng figure of speech di ba? Kahit sa mababang paaralan ng sapang baswit ka ang-a ral di ba? E bakit ako ang sinisisi mo na sa halip mag-aral ka ay maaga kang Kumire.
        Pls do not try to draw sympathy by being overmelodramatic . I never mention anything about where I am from or what I do for a living . I’m sorry to disappoint u but I do not have debts . I pay my credit cards in full every month . I have no luxuries in life as having so makes me feel conscience-stricken knowing that some of us have nothing to live on . I enjoy simple life like reading normannorman and playing sports with my kids.
        Why don’t you try to do better so you do not have to use me as an excuse for everything wrong in your life? Do not play a victim here. Ipinagyayabang ko raw dahil taga Missouri raw ako? Barbie , pls start by stopping that slave attitude.

      • I am not bullying everything that is against me. San nanggaling yun? Imbento ka nanaman! You are the bully! Besides being the bully, mahilig kang mag buhat ng sarili mong bangko kahit wala naman kaming pake! Yung pang aasar ko ba kay Angelo dahil ba against me? Hinde! Kasi below the belt na siya kay Norman nun saka nakakatawa naman talaga yung di niya pagka get over kay Guidotti! Hindi ako slave mentality kasi kung slave mentality ako eh di sana tumiklop na ko sayo kaso hindi kaya sorry ka na lang. I am not trying to gain symphathy, I do not care if I get a million likes and dislikes as long as I speak with my heart and what I think is right!

      • BARBIE VODOO DOLL, AKO NAGWALA, TALAGA????? NAGWALA KAAGAD? DI BA PWEDING NAGLUPASAY LANG?

    • Ang saya!!! Ang kwela! So, ano po ang inyong “assigned titles” para sa kanila, Madam Stella Barbie Marquez de Araneta? 😊😊😊

    • Excuse me barbie, alam mo naman na nagpakamatay c zombie. Diko na nga sinasagot yung replayed long playing album nya kc bobobobobo(voice of Andrew olivar)lng ang peg nya🤗
      Top 3 should be you, ana and me😄hihihi
      And the winner is……. #UKno#UKnowWho cherette lng hihihi👏👏👏

    • May kanya kanyang advocacies ang mga reyna. Pwede rin sila sumali sa Q & A ah. Awrahan ang labanan. Sana di sila magsabunutan!

      • Bong700 , pag nanalo si Dindi ng international crown Baka Ibato sa yo. You never know who the organization will like .

    • BARBIE VOODDO DOLL, IF I KNOW IKAW ITONG GUSTON SUMALI, BAKIT SINASANKALAN MO PA KAMI BWA HAK HAK HAK HA HAK APIL NA BAYOT OY! ARON NAAY PAGKATAW ANAN,

    • agree ako barbie sa mga taff candidates mo. ang gagaling nila. They will surely bring honour and pride to our country. Lampasuhin nila ang mga kalaban. Luv it!

  8. Lam nyo mga veks si Apriel Smith talaga ang betsina ko. It’s time for Philippines to send a half Pinay half African American with a very compelling diversity back story. Maglalaway ang MUO for her…When was the last time a dark skinned woman won Miss U? We have that ACE in Apriel Smith…

  9. Maganda ang anak ni Melanie Marquez.
    Kaya lang para siyang magandang babae na kontrabida ang role sa isang soap opera.

  10. Patricia Magtanggol (not sure of the surname). Law proper in UP. Dusky. Very Filipina…communication skills I can say I am confident na with her.

  11. I wish a fresh face in the league of Miriam Quiambao’s dusky beauty, in a towering height, plus excellent communication skills will appear on the screening days. Please?

    • Yup , Miriam or Janine… yung maganda pag nakapusod
      Tapos mala-Miriam or Venus pag naglakad
      Tapos mag also ng Sumgaot ala Janine o Pia
      Tapos very outgoing and confident
      Tapos classy ang dating ala Pia o Heart E
      At dapat Marunong sumayaw o magperforn sa stage ala Wynwyn

      • Miriam is my all-time favorite rep the Philippines has ever sent to Miss Universe. I can vividly recall how she stroke a pose in swimsuit and evening gown. And the pasarela is so elegant.

      • Miriam Quiambao is the only Philippine delegate that Miss Universe should have give the crown to. I saw her during that competition. Was it on channel 9 at that time?

    • @4M, I am not losing my hope. We are a country composed of different provinces. There are a lot of beautiful girls in the countryside who are waiting to be discovered.

      @Fabbie, Johnny – Agreed.

      • SALI KA NA RIN ANA WITOR WONDORLAND WA HIK HK HIK HIK IRAMPA MO NA RIN ANG INA MONG PUTA!

  12. Tama na mga vaks, wait na lang tayo kung sino ang mga sasali at saka tayo magkudahan hihihi
    Yung mga pinagsasabi nyo na dapat sumali ay baka buntis na during screening days hihihi
    OK lng kahit di na sila virgin huwag lang buntis kasi marami namang paiyot na Binibini pero di buntis kasi di natin sila mapigilan kung katihin sila hihihi
    After all, naghihintay lang naman silang maging kabit ng mga politician kaya sumali sila sa Binibining Pilipinas hihihi
    O sya mga tsismosa at nasaan na c Anawindang para maupdate naman tayo sa mga fresh na tsismis na ikinatutuwa ng karamihang tsismosa na mga social climbers sa blog ni Momma N hihihi
    Babusshh muna for a few minutes 🙂 cherette

  13. Leren for me is Ms. U!

    Kelsey Meritt – had to unfollow her sa IG. Di ko kayang makita ang ganda, sex appeal, landi at projection and all…tapos maiisip ko na di nya talaga gusto mag-pageant…haaaayyyy…

    On the recycling of queens – parang ayoko makita ang local QUEENS (Jamie, Catriona) competing ulit sa BBP. Yes, they’re strong and all…pero ayoko silang makita winning crowns other than Miss U.

    On Catriona – I have a feeling na kung meron man syang sasalihan, Ms. EARTH ito. Hindi sya papatok kay Madame SA…una, may men’s mag/sexy cover sya (Rogue Jan/Feb 2014)…pangalawa – MWP 2016, tapos involved pa sa activities ng MEP/ME2017…

    So far, wala pang super pasabog na girl na lumalabas for 2018. Pero excited na ako sa first screening ng BBP…

    • Kung totoo na nagcover na pala si Catriona sa isang mens magazine ay wla na nga yang pag asa makasali ng bbp regardless kong ganu karaming skin ang pinakita as long as MENS MAGAZINE ay matic nang disqualified sa bbp. Claro pa yan kay Recto yang rule na yan kaya wag na mag ambisyon na makasali si Catripna o Kim de Guzman.

      • Googled it – Rogue is a men’s mag and Cat posed there.

        If Cat is really training or is currently under KF (again, if this true), I guess she’s Ms. EARTH-bound…at wala akong nakikitang masama doon.

      • Excited ako jan sa Miss Earth Road to the Crown ni Catriona!!! At back2back na dapat yan mga beshy!!!! Hahahahaha

  14. Sino na nga yung “Sta. Maria” girl who almost won sa Asia’s Next Top Model?

    There may be one or two more Filipinas from that contest worth exploring. I just saw Maureen Wroblewitz in person last week. Pretty girl indeed.

    Yup. Herrel and Wynwyn are kinda overexposed na. Wag na. Catriona may be too “sweet” for Ms. Universe. Pang Ms. World or Ms. International sya.

  15. My god mga gays.. tama na si catriona at jamie. Sige isama nyo na rin si Laura Lehman na puro talunan sa intl pageant.. may common at obvious factor kung bakit talunan ang mga yan puro di kagandahan in intl standard, walang latuy, no xfactor,walang spice and dull personality. Maganda lang sila in Pinoy standard-mestisa, maputi etc.
    Kaya nexxxttt please yung mga fresh faces naman

    • Jeremi , talunan ba yung top 5?
      Kung gusting SumAli ni Cat sa BP At qualified naman , why not ?
      Kayo lang naman ang nauumay sa KAnila .l
      Experience helps them to be better candidates
      .

    • KELAN NATALO SI JAMIE HERRELL??????

      PAKI EXPLAIN?????????

      PUSANG INA!!!!!!

      NANG GIGIL AKO SA RESEARCHER MO!!

      HAHAHA

    • Sorry Baklah si Valerie pala yun pero ganun din ang personality ni Jamie – walang latuy, no spice at dull. Yun lang

  16. Ewan ko ba sa ibang mga baks dito, pinipilit talaga sina Catriona Gray,Jaime herrel,Wynwyn at kung sino sino pang overexposed. Pwede ba bigyan naman ng chance ang ibang pinay, siguro naman hindi lang sila ang magaganda at matatalinong pinay, madami dyan kaya KF and AQ, search pa more ng mga deserving ladies at pwede ba , enough na muna ang pag trained ng ibang lahi .Yun lang

  17. leren bautista, apriel smith and alaiza malinao for me. these girls are competitive and would standout in MU.

  18. My 2018 wishlist:

    Nicole Guerrero
    Nikita Pia McElroy
    Samantha Ashley Lo
    Michelle Marquez Dee
    Lleren Mae Bautista
    Aya Abesamis
    Apriel Smith

    For 2019-2021
    Patricia Magtanong
    Catriona Grey
    Daisha Jimenez

      • If I’m not mistaken, Anjie is like super tall (5’11”). She was raised in Canada.

      • I love her. I love that she’s morena. So few of our recent queens have been morena, which is odd given the fact that our country is majority moreno/a. This is why I love the Indonesian queens. They’re showing the world that Malay features & skin is gorgeous & crown-worthy.

      • Thanks for posting this. This is the lady I was trying to recall together with Patricia Magtanong.

        Ms Balatbat surely has the MU factor.

      • Gusto ko sya maging maid hihihi cherette lang
        Napost ko na sya last year hoping she will join BbPilipinas for MU crown.
        She’s a mercator model i guess.
        Sana mainterview sya para magkaroon naman tayo ng idea about her sex life este life lang pala hihihi
        Cge na ading, join kan ket ado fans mo hihihi 🙂

  19. Michelle Dee is overrated.. D-i naman kagandahan.. For now, the only plus point I’m seeing from her is her towering height ..well, this reminds me of ms China in the just concluded MU.. Pero sashfactor ang ang nagluklok Kay ateng na mapabilang sa first cut at Hindi kung anu anu pa man..un na.

    • I can see where u are coming from.
      She is not very feminine and her face may not be appealing enough.
      But with make up on and the great enthusiasm she has been showing so far , she can be a ‘perforner’ Like her mom and Wynwyn.

  20. If Michele Dee is articulate, she’s perfect for Miss Universe. Learn is for MGI, Lo is for International.

  21. Catriona’s destined to win the title if ever she even looks at a BPCI application form. The girl is too complete of a package. She has everything. She has a “brand” like Pia and Demi.

    Question is: KF ba talaga siya now? If so, hope they don’t package her with Camp Pasabog branding: 1) duck walk and 2) veneers. Tough 10 material lang yan.

    Apriel Smith is an obvious MU Philippines in the making. Her background would just be too good for
    MUO to pass up. However her Cebu duties probably won’t allow her to compete this year.

    Question: do any other showbiz daughters want their stab at the MUP title too? If so, I think Mama would be happy to make them a priority to expand their “Empire” connections. At least one, brought home the Wyn, though.

    Camp wars and camp politics and camp agenda. Sirene Sutton FTW!!!

    Bring on 2018!

      • Pinakalat ni Richmond ng KF na lilipat si Catriona sa kanila pero kuryente ito na hopia sila

      • Barbie , reading compression pls . He had it as a question … meaning, he is not sure either

      • Kaya nga tinatanong ko san niya kinuha yung chismis? Kasi bakit naman siya magtatanong kung wala namang balita na ganon or kung may nababalitaan siyang ganon? Ano yun baliw lang, gumagawa ng intriga and asking random questions? Use your common sense Fabian!

      • Barbie, exactly . Common sense .
        Why ask someone who obviously has no idea whatsoever ?
        Makakuda lang tralala putak putak putak

      • Barbs, tsmis lang yan teh. That was like Wednesday’s news or something. Look at the other posts here and you’ll see where that started. Details are curious though.

        Anyway, Catriona would have to fall off the stage in order to get anything less that MUP or MIP.

        We know she’d want nothing but MUP as its easily in her reach, but honestly she would be the 7t Miss International from the Philippines if she gets that task. If MUO wants Phils to host again in 2018 that’s the route I would hope for her. Save the host country thank you girl duties for someone else.

      • Fabian, kaya nga tinatanong ko kung san niya nakuha yun at bakit siya nagtatanong? Sino ang walang common sense satin? Yung nagtatanong kung bakit niya natanong yun at san niya nakuha (ako) or yung nagtatanong bakit ako nagtatanong nun (ikaw)? You’re making yourself a FOOL here.

      • Barbie , I didn’t bring up the question of common sense . You did .
        And if you had any , u would not have even bothered asked the question to justgrc.
        Now who is making a fool of himself here ?
        Tse hihihi

      • Source is an admin of a pageant site. I checked Catriona’s IG and she unfollowed Jonas, MaRuffa, Bessie, Megan and Pia. She follows Olivia, Paulina, Demi and Ariadna. I think may tampo sya sa Aces.

      • KF can always help Catriona win the Miss Earth crown. They have the formula down pat, they can program Catriona to win, and Earth doesn’t mind rehearsed-sounding answers. Alternatively, Miss International could also be a sure win for Catriona & she wouldn’t even need polishing for her prepared speech (like Bea Santiago did for Kevin Liliana). But if Catriona wants to win Universe, A&Q would be a much better fit.

      • Tse ka rin! Kala mo diyan ah! Nagtatanong lang ako kung ano nang sinabi mo. Naki-epal ka. Isa kang malaking epal! Si justgrc ang tinatanong ko hindi ikaw kaya wala kang karapatan sumagot in behalf of him. Spokesperson ka ba nya? I may look like a fool for asking but you proved yourself that you are the biggest FOOL here for butting in a comment that was not intended to be yours! HAHAHAHA! Wag kasing masyadong atribida!

    • I agree on Cat but not on Apriel. I think the latter is too reserved for MU . We need someone who has an open bright sunny personality .

      • Fabián, dear, our last two reps have not been that way.

        Personality not necessary for Tough 6/10. Or maybe bright and sunny sila because Beach Babe GF ang brand nila haha. Confidently Beautiful empowerment through space and waves hahaha.

        Besides, it’ll be another few decades before we have our next Miss U.

        I’m happy if they can just showcase a gown that’s Pinoy-made, intrigues and all.

        LOL

    • Thank you justgrc for confirming! Sana hindi totoo kasi mala MJ lastimosa ang case nito if ever. If totoo man, good luck for her.

      Ayan na Fabian sumagot na siya sa tanong ko. May sense kasi yung tanong ko kung san niya nakuha. Ikaw totoo ba na kayo ni Angelo ay iisa? Iisa lang kayo ng apelido eh. Who knows may split personality ka dito? HAHAHAHAHA!

      • Again , BArbie , your choice of word … confirming ?
        Sorry to disappoint u but Angelo and I are totally different people . Are u happy that you are being double-teamed by the Reyeses?

  22. Maxine Medina and Rachel Peters parehas lang ata ang placements nila, magkaiba lang ang format . Si Maxine siya yung panghuli sa anim na natira at obviously she messed up her q and a . While Rachel muntik ng makapasok sa top 5 ,nakulangan lang ng smize at lucky charm kaya naungusan ni Colombia at Jamaica

    • If we based it statistically, maxine was ranked 5th while rach was 7th to 8th.

      there is no proof that maxine placed last in top 6 or rachel is placed 6th.

      maxine is considered as finalist while rachel as semifinalist.

    • maxine made it as top 9 and even top 6.

      while rachel wasnt even officialy included as top 9!!! she just a top 10.

      • alalahanin mo din baks, dito ginanap ang MU2016 ,syempre binigyan ng pabor ang Pilipinas na makaabot kahit top 6 lang para di mag aalburuto mga audience sa MOA. hehe, fact yan. May Prelim Interview ba nung 2016? Buti na lang at nakapasok si Maxine eh alam naman natin na kulang talaga siya on how to expressed herself ,not articulate nadala lang sa homecourt advantage at yan ang totoo

      • Star , MAxine has a very likeable persona And I’m sure she’s ok with conversational English . Q and A is a totally different ballgame .
        Since u mentioned that , what abt Thailand and Indonesia who obviously were in the same predicament as MAxine . They were prob worse .

      • Star!!! napanood mo ba last year pano ang performance ni Max?? Planchado talaga sya sa top 6 not because of host country rep sya, but bcause of her personality, catwalk, face. Di siya marunong mag english pero si France at Thailand ganundin. Tatlo silang magaganda pasok sa top 6. Maxine deserves it! Wag na tau manghila ng ranking ni Maxine para ipantay kay Rachel. Fan ako ng KF girls pero wag naman naten hilahin pababa si Maxine. Si Rachel Top10 at si Maxine Top6 and that is what it is! Lahat ng sinabi mo assumptions lang. We never know baka last si Rachel sa Top 10 at 4th place si Maxine over all. Everything else is not a fact other than Rachel is Top10 at Maxine is Top6. They both deserves to be celebrated!!!

      • Stop comparing rachel and maxine..maxine joined 2016 while rachel joined 2017..diff sets of everything from delegates to judges
        …ano ba yan??? Toink.

    • Its imposible for Jamie Herrel to join,May ME crown na siya pano kung maligwak siya edi laking kahihiyan pano di makuntento while Catriona naman ,overrated na baks, we need some new faces yung freshly looking. Yun lang.

      • Hindi kahihiyan yun. Win or lose she’s already a Miss Earth Winner and no one can take that away from her. But if she wins, she will add another title to her name.

      • Hindi kahhiyan yun ? Wala ka bang pakiramdam?
        She has won a big international crown already. I’m sure it would be a big blow to her ego if she lost either at National or international level?
        Don’t tell me, I’m not Jamie Herrel to know that .
        I don’t have to be Jamie Herrel to know that . U just need a little common sense to know that .

    • I LOVE JAMIE HERREL TO BE MISS UNIVERE!!!!

      she would be a stefania fernandez 2.0!!!!!

      cool but sure ang peg nya!!!!

      young and full of personality!!!

      pak na pak si JAMIE HERREL!!

  23. Sana manalo na si Jehza Huelar. Makoronahan na sana siya on her 3rd try if sumali siya.

    Still hoping for Elima though!

    Those 2 girls have a big chance kaya kung ako sa kanila laban pa!!!

    But then, there is Catriona Gray and Apriel Smith which are strong contenders!

    Sa 4 na minention, walang MUP material

    Michelle Marquez Dee – Feeling ko since hilaw pa, uulit to ng BBP or any of the crowns except MU

    Leren Mae Bautista – Any of the crowns except MU

    Eva Psychee Patalinjug – Any of the crowns except MU

    Samantha Ashley Lo – Any of the crowns except MU

  24. Suggestion lang sa BPCI, they should require a candidate with half Filipino blood to have atleast 5-10 years residence sa Pilipinas.

  25. This is best time for Cat to join. From the looks of it MUO is keen of crowning a Filipina on home soil next year. Top 10 finish of Rachel is the perfect preparation.

    • true,,,nung 65th edition, MUO is willing to do a back to back for the Philippines…it’s just that Maxine fambled in the Q& A. Their waiting for the perfectly strong candidate

  26. I analyzed Miss U from 2011 to 2013 (also 2014) and I believe that the 4-4-4-4 is not something new. MUOrg has been putting this into practice even back then but they were not just telling it as a public announcement ( in 2010 , & 2015 , there were some imbalance towards Europe and Americas respectively) Of course, we cannot include 2013 since they had only 13 semifinalists.

    • 2011

      1- Angola, Philippines, China, Australia

      2 – Ukraine, France, Portugal, Kosovo, Netherland

      3 – Brazil, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, USA

      Wild card in favor of Americas?

      2012

      1 – South Africa, Philippines, Australia, India, Turkey

      2 – France, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Croatia, Kosovo

      3 – Venezuela, Peru, Mexico, Brazil, USA

      Wild card in favor of Eastern Europe?

      2013

      1- Philippines, India, China, Indonesia

      2 – Spain, Great Britain, Ukraine, Switzerland

      3 – Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico

      Wild card in favor of Americas again? And no placement for Africa?

      • yes 2016 , not 2013

        I looked back to 2003 through 2009 (except 2006 when they had 20 semis) and found out that surprisingly, the most balanced years were 2007 and 2008

        2009 were very heavily in favor of Europe ! but they all fall back when top 10 and top 5 are called

    • Based on article by Rolling Stone, 6 girls are Trump’s choice and as you can see he favored Eastern European girls! Isn’t it Melania and Ivanka are of Czech descent? Thank God! He’s out!

      • It may seem to a lot of fans that the most underrepresented group is Europe since there are almost no winners from Europe (Iris, only one since Oxana & only once since Mona) but in actuality, the most underrepresented is AsiaOceaniaAfrica even though there have been a number of winners from here.

        On the other side, Americas is so insanely overrepresented, all throughout the years

  27. SORRY MGA BAKLAH KASI SA APAT NA YAN WALANG PANG TOP 5 MISS UNIVERSE CALIBRE!!!!!

  28. for me feel ko lang Michele dee could be nicole C 2.0 at first hinde mo pa masyado ma say why her pero nung dumating ang finals night kaboom!!! ganyan ako kay nicole c noon d ko ma gets ang hype sa kanya.

      • Yes may kulang talaga pero you cannot ignore her that night. you need to give her a crown. kahit papano nasagot nya din naman ung tanong ko why her.

  29. Personal Bets for 2018 :
    MU-Michelle Dee
    MW-Samantha Lo
    ME-Pajares Sisters(baka sa MEP ang swerte nila)
    MI-Diana Mackey
    MS-Jehza Huelar
    MIntercon-Maria Gigante
    MGI-Apriel Smith

  30. Actually kaumay na.. I just hope someone comes along na complete package, facially beautiful check, body proportion check, articulate check, may sense kausap check, outgoing personality check, driven check, responsible and discipline to perform the functions of the crown check.. Mukhang mahirap makahanap ng ganun na check check lahat.. Lol

    • Marvin Kaumay ? Maybe among Pinoy fans
      Sya na Naman?
      It’s not like it’s the same 40 candidates all over again .
      And U know these previous participations get these girls ready for the bigger thing .

  31. Kung silang apat lang ang frontrunners next year il Go for Loren or samantha as MUP. Michelle dee? hmmm. shes a statuesque. haba din ng legs. minsan parang hit and miss din yata ito. Pero wel’ll see mas ok ma criticize ang mga girls once bbp season na. we need to see then in motion and talking. excited much. cant wait.

    • si eva pwede naman sa Miss international. pahinga muna tayo don. save the best girl in the right year/time.

  32. Kaya pala some admin of pageant sites are pushing Catriona to delay her Binibini plans . They know na the UNIVERSE crown is reserved na for Michelle Dee.

  33. A and Q Flagbearers:
    Jehza Huelar
    Apriel Smith
    Samantha Lo
    Angelica Aleta

    KF Flagbearers:
    Michelle Dee
    Emma Tiglao
    Diana Mackey
    Tim Alsowyed
    Ruffa Nava
    Maria Gigante

  34. Sa panahon ngayon ng patimpalak hindi na mahalaga kung gaano kaganda ang isang babae sa isang larawan, gaano katangkad o kinulang sa katangkaran, kung gaano kagaling sa paglalakad, hindi sigurado kahit bihasa ka sa ilang wika, hindi na importe kung ilang diploma ang iyong natanggap at hindi rin lalo mahalaga kung alin sa mga beauty camp ang tumutulong sa iyo. Ang patimpalak talaga ay suwerte suwerte lamang. Wala sa ganda, wala sa katangkaran, wala sa iyong pinag-aralan at wala rin sa beauty camp ang susi ng tagumpay upang ikaw ang mananalo sa korona.

    • I beg to disagree.
      First and foremost , You have to be pretty in shape youthful feminine and articulate .
      Without the above , u can’t be MU MI MGI Magwala ka man.

  35. Fortunately, Ang daming magagandang Pinay! Pero Ilan Lang din diyan Ang may personality and commitment to win!

    And sa format ng BPCI na one size fits all kailangan ma-calibrate nila Yung selection process para mag-match dun sa hinahanap ng pageant:

    Tatlo Ang critical,

    MI – kandidatang interactive at proactive. Yung pre-pageant activities nila Ang preliminary pageant Kaya di pwede Ang mala-wall flower diyan! So far, Gail Tobes Lang Yung fit pero naka-Miss Manila PA siya. Kung ang mindset eh Yung mukhang manyika pa Rin, better review Yung performance nung Top8!

    MS – preferably independent candidate na may modeling experience na parang walking billboard Ang dating. Kung independent pa Rin si Sirene Sutton and improved na comm skills Niya, she’s good to go!

    MU – self-assured girl na Alam Kung ano gagawin Niya sa title and preferably may existing advocacy or real life backstory dahil Hindi naman existing yon for compliance purposes, dapat panindigan Mo talaga! Hindi ko Alam Kung nakakontrata pa si Catriona at kailangang i-delay to 2019. On the other hand, maganda Yung story ni Jehza na na-survive Ang pagiging ulila!

    Eto is Kung may natutunan si SMA sa performance ng MGA girls Niya this year! Otherwise, expect another batch of clappers!

  36. I hope McGarry joins MWP . She would be very competitive . I feel like she deserves a big international crown .

  37. I love this four above !… how about Danica Magpantay ? Angelica Alita is short but very lovely; Catriona of course but perhaps best for 2019 cause she is still young I think; Lina Prongoso and Jessica Gonzales and Ann Marie Gangan; how about Katrina Dimaranan ?

  38. If I remember right etong si Eva eh Yung Hindi mahanap comes departure day for her competition. And may nag-chika din dito na spotted siya with that pageant king na ibang babae naman ang kinakalantaryo ngayon. So, somehow she has committment issue.

    This Samantha looks competitive though I still want to get to know her better!

    And Kung pwede mag-join Yung nanalo na internationally, bring on Jamie Herell too! Pasalihin ulit si Kristine Estoque and Vina Openiano.

  39. Michelle Dee for MUP! Another facet of Filipina beauty. I don’t remember us sending Chinay to Miss Universe. Geraldine de Asis came close but she’s more Eurasian. I want Michelle to train with A&Q and make her look Universal pero angat pa rin ang pagka Chinese. There was a reason why Ms China landed in the Top 16 despite the weak pasarela. Chinese market is huge and although Michelle is Filipina, her Chinese heritage is a big plus. Another kind of branding na naman ito kung saka sakali. And 5’11 is another asset – glamazona ang dating. I saw an interview where she said she wants to aim for the top prize. That’s a good start – ambitious and driven. Ok din ang communication skills nya kase she’s been a celebrity in her own right. Advocacy na lang ang dapat gawan ng paraan. She should start doing HIV awareness campaign then outreach program sa mga rural poor. Good luck Michelle!

  40. Vickie Rushton, she’s a former Mutya ng Pilipinas International 2011 winner. And she also won in various local beauty pageants in Bacolod. She has a good heart.

    • Definitely true!!!! walking distance lang bahay nila samin pero never met her pa 😂.coz since now manila is her current home. I hope nasa Aces and Queens sya. parang nasa A&Q nga yata. hoping for jehza huelar too. Maine Elima, samantha lo, apriel smith i dont think sasale sya now kung sumali man pabor kaya ang Miss Manila Org? Gusto ko din ung mga runner ups sa Miss Millennial ng EB pati ung winner. and of course sirene sutton.

      • correction on apriel bb cebu pala. Si Gail Tobes pala ung miss manila pero one of my list also. ganda talaga ng laban if lahat yan sumali.

  41. I’ve seen a photo of Eva Patalinjug with Demi & Iris. Sorry to say this, pero nilamon siya nung dalawang MU!

  42. Leren Mae Bautista for MUP if Catriona will not join this year… pero pag sumali si Cat siya ang MUP ko.
    Michelle Marquez Dee for MIP
    Samantha Ashley Lo for Supranational
    Eva Psychee Patalinjug for Miss Grand Mama

    kung totoo man join ang mga eto maganda ang laban… i really like leren since here mutya ng pilipinas stand… was hoping one day she will join bb pilipinas…. her true Filipinas and oozing sex appeal will definitely shine in the international stage like miss universe.. however if Catriona will decided to join my 101% to cat.

  43. The heat is on !
    Michelle Dee sort of reminds me of China 2017.
    I love Samantha Lo. Malakas ang loob ni Samantha . But I think a first runner up would be appr for now…. to get her ready for the bigger thing next yr or so.
    What abt Angelica?
    They say Lorraine Kendrickson is already married .
    I hope Leren’s international crown does not blind the judges into giving her the MUP title . I really do not know where to place her … maybe Globe?
    I want someone pretty youthful and ultra feminine for MUP.
