  3. Final submission palang ng application trending agad si Catriona pag ito hindi naging official BBP Candidates surely Trending si SMA.

  4. why are there so many candidates who look like twin copies of Bea Rose Santiago ? … Catriona is a clear standout

  5. Other would be candidates are shaking!!! Catriona Gray for Miss Universe Philippines 2018! OMG yaaasssss.

    • truli mum. now ko lang nagets tong comment mo lol. bakit naman kasi nya naisipang sumabay kay Cat for the second time kaloka

  6. Perfect scenario will be Cat winning MUP. MU2018 will be held in the Philippines. And Paula will be more thsn willing to crown a PH rep on home soil.

  7. Screening pa lang grabe na ng buzz around Cat. The one to beat for the top crown for sure and she has come prepared. She knows what she got into and her fans and supporters are solidly behind her. Kung may bashers man sya, most probably threatened lang sila which is understandable. #CatrionaGray4MUP2018

    • @ Dawn – I can’t wait til she oficially starts her MUP 2018, rather, MU2018 journey.
      As you have said, she’s the “one” that got away in MW2016. I sure do hope A & Q backs her up 100%

  8. Methinks Ton Lao and Harley Tan, the same team behind Rachel, tried to convince her to switch camps (KF). She was torn between honouring her camp (A&Q) and the group of Ton Lao who supported her during her reign in MWP. As a win win situation to both parties, she just requested to be independent under both Jonas and Ton.

      • Nope. They styled Rachel and Elizabeth Clenci last year who both wore Val Taguba in the finals of their international competitions. I think they prefer Rodgil who doesn’t ask for money unlike Jonas who gets commission from Pia’a earnings. Pera pera din.

      • Shunga ba u? Jonas is Pia’s manager. Natural may commission sya from Pia’s earnings just like Ogie Diaz has commission on Liza Soberano’s earnings.

      • IKaw Ang shunga! It’s not just about a manager getting commission from his talent. It’s about Who will manage Cat should she win the Miss U crown. If she’ll be under A&Q, Jonas will push the set up ala Pia. Ton Lao will not allow that of course that’s why he prefers to have her transfer to Rodgil instead who isn’t a talent manager.

      • Megan Young was under Aces & Queens during her MW stint and when her reign ended, Jonas didn’t manage her nor is managing her showbiz career and endorsements. Me thinks this hate and vitriol against Jonas or his camp have gone overboard. Give him a break. She’s produced three major queens in 3 years and we all know how hard he works to make the Philippines pageant powerhouse. He deserves to be rewarded. Filipinos can he ungrateful sometimes.

      • This is like a carpenter in the Philippines who expects a doctor to pay him for a job done .. but does not feel required to pay that doc when he Consults him for a medical problem . … a very common scenario in the Philippines.

        The same thing goes here.
        Some people don’t think these queen builders are deserving of any compensation . Jonas takes these girls in for free… without a guarantee of financial return . Why cant he make a little money when these girls become successful?

      • @Ryan gurl, PIa and Jonas are like sanggang-dikit (tama ba yung term?) til the end. Like what Pia said, they have each other’s back. Their bond goes way beyond pageant trainee and mentor or even beyond talent and talent manager. That’s why Pia chose to stay with Jonas and still chooses to defend him despite all the negativities surrounding their duo. At isa pa, Pia almost had nothing before Jonas met him. Cat on the other hand has an entirely different life before Jonas Gaffud. Cat has already established herself as a seasoned model in the fashion world and im sure she has the freedom (and connections) to choose who will handle her career and other endeavors post-pageant limelight. Catriona choosing Jonas as a manager would just be a case of personal choice by Cat and not because she was forced by Jonas to do so.

  9. too much hype.. after 40 years ulit mananalo MU
    jeske
    pang miss tourism queen of scuba world lang naman ito

  10. According to Adam Genato, isa daw si Cat sa mga piling girls na kinausap ni Madam kanina sa screening. Alam nyo na…

  11. Catriona Gray will be crowned Bb Pilipinas-International or Grand International. In fairness, she will bring an international recognition, our seventh MI crown or the very first Miss Hrand International crown.

    • “@ohyesitst_o_s_h yes. We have other friends helping that is why better to say independent but under AQ”

      -reply ni Jonas Gaffud sa isang commenter sa IG post na to. I tried to screenshot but idk how to post pic here huhu

  12. Parang nakikita ko na naman ang paulit ulit na nangyayari taon taon sa kandita ng pilipinas, e overhype na naman, tapos UMASA, NABIGO at DI MAKAPG MOVE ON.

  13. In case manalo si cat ng binibining pilipinas universe she will be the first ever who wins miss world and universe Philippines. Tama ba?

  14. We need to Stop hyping her
    We need to step back keep quiet and let her do the job . Otherwise , it will be another toxic MW 2016.
    I would very much prefer to be in Janine’s position where everyone was against her so much that any outcome at all would be an achievement .
    Here , the hype calls for nothing but the MU crown. It is so much pressure we are putting on Catriona . Pls let her enjoy her quest .

    • Oh Fabbie dear Fabbie. Her heart knows that it’s MUP or bust. I’m pretty sure that Lola Jonas told her that so that supposed pressure isn’t something that should come as a surprise. I hope Madame Stella sees this is an opportunity to give Lola Julia a big ass slapping. hihihi

      • 4m, I agree
        But I’m talking about the pressure from the whole sangkab—laan hihihi

      • Hihihi. Oh I’m sure she knows that too. She has a solid supporter base who clamors for this time. It’s really hard to downplay pressure on a candidate like Cat. I can’t wait to see who makes it BbP screening para magkaalaman na talaga kung sino ang may ibubuga.

  15. Now we know why she unfollowed lots of A&Q veks…hihihi And now we know why Rachel was only tough 10 last year. daming hihihi… Good luck #CatGanern I hope you win MUP and MU is ready to bring the crown back to Manila.

  16. She just gave the pageant a jolt of excitement that was sorely missing. If that isn’t star power, I don’t know what is.

  17. My queen dear. As we talk about wag munang maglalapit sa May mga sumpa. Lol. This would be the journey to watch . Ang mga kapitbahay nanginginig na sa takot.

  18. medyo break muna from Cat (coz after nito Cat all the way na ako)

    Can someone confirm this? Nagsubmit daw si Jehza Huelar ng application

    Also, hindi ko pa nababalitaan/wala pa akong nakikitang picture na nagsubmit si Aya Abesamis :(((

  19. Go Catriona! Our next MUP! Kung di ka man palarin meron pang MI na feeling ko maipapanalo mo at ang MGI (although overqualified ka dun sa tingin ko). Kawawa ang ibang mga candidates clappers ang peg! Hahaha! Feeling ko pinag independent kuno nila si Catriona para ligtas sa hagupit ni Stella. Kaya kung mapapansin nyo weak ang candidates ng A&Q ngayon kasi ang totoong alas nila ay si Catriona.

  20. Masyadong nagpa-importante, saai din pala.

    Kapag hindi nanalo to, kawawa ang eventual winner. Katakot-takot na lait ang aabutin. At isusumpa si Madam.

    Independent, so as not to get associated with A&Q para hindi tamaan ng sumpa. Lol!

    Good luck and let’s see what will happen.

  21. OMG…cant believe this was possible haha well goodluck to her….any crown other than MUP is not worth her time and effort. She deserves to represent PH at the ultimate olympics of beauty. IT SHOUD HAPPEN!

  22. Get ready ladies kung sino man ang uuwi ang MUP Crown lalamon ng sandamakmak na bashing at pang alimpusta kung hindi ito ang mananalo (Catriona). For now, its time to return MI Crown to Philippines credit to Catriona Gray… or 1st crown of MGI.

  23. She’s so beautiful. Sana lang tigilan na ang paghahalungkat sa vogue pictures niya.
    Problem din na ngrepresent siya sa Miss World. Baka yaw ng MUO at ni SMA.

    AT ANG VENEERSSSS. Itapon na yan please.

  24. Catriona Gray will be Bb Pilipinas-International. This early, that is my prediction. She will realize that there are at least seven other women are in string competition for the Universe crown and that it won’t be an easy win. In fact, she can go and win Bb Pilipinas-Grand International too.

    • And those seven other woman, meron din silang “long existing” advocacy like Cat? Care to share their names so I can lurk on their IG account?

      • Advocacy ka diyan? Hype lang ang ginagawa ninyo. Bb Pilipinas is not like MWP na kaya lang sa hyping. Let her compete with the worthy candidates. Hindi pabebe ang Binibini, as I can see her, she will be Bb Pilipinas-International.

  25. alam nyo naman ang kamandag ni Madam Stella Araneta na those who oppose her should suffer.charot Kaya i think strategy din ito ni Lola Jonas pero ingat lang din baka may makatunog at tuluyang iligwak si ate Gurl Catriona ng isang MadamStella Araneta…Lesson learned kay Lola Jonas na huwag banggain ang pader dahil kahit anong gawin mo , Madam Stella Araneta from Colombia has the last say. At pwede ba Lola Jonas, wag masyadong dumikit kay Catriona baka mapurnada pa ang pagpatong ng MUP crown sa ulo niya. wahaha

  26. Naku, SMA! Por pabor! Huwag mong gawing issue ang Rogue Magazine pictorial! Kung Hindi itatapon namin Ang mga Cumbia gowns mo!

  27. Jonas plan is to stay close with cat so that xat will not get the MUP supraintercon or international for her madam knkws she live bashers and haters…

  28. She’ll be wasted at Miss International…
    I don’t think the MIOrg would let the Philippines win 3 times in less than 6 years. Highest placement is 1st RUp even if she is the most desserving.

    Lowest crown she could get is Miss Grand but it would be imposible for her not to win in that Pageant.. worst case is another 1st RUp…. but that would mean the end of Miss Grand International.

    Therefore it is MISS UNIVERSE or NOTHING!!!

    CATRIONA GREY IS MISS UNIVERSE 2018!!!!

  29. My hunch is that Cat went independent so that she could possibly avoid Madame Stella’s rumored beef with Jonas and the A&Q camp. Di ba ang chika last year, ayaw ni madame pumili ng MUP winner from that camp dahil mas lumalakas ang influence ni Jonas sa MU org kaysa sa kanya kahit siya ang national director/actual franchise owner ng MU dito.

    Anyway! I would prefer a 2019 bid for her but still, isang malaking YES! Sana, sana, sana talaga everything goes well for her. Please prevail, Catriona!!!

  30. OMG! This is what I have heard about the A&Q’s surprise! It may be too early to field Catriona in BbP, but I would love to think that A&Q think tanks know better than us/me. It makes this BbP episode a lot more exciting! Good luck, Cat!

  31. Some thoughts:

    > The courage to take a risk in joining BB Pilipinas after winning Miss World Philippines and placing Top 5 in Ms. World is commendable. Carpe Diem. Better to try and fail than to never have tried at all.

    > Catriona is the indeed the girl to beat this year. Beauty, height, experience, demeanor, advocacy. She is like the SM malls. She got it all. Lol.

    There are a handful of worthy girls (ex. Monika Sta Maria) but they come far second to Catriona.

    > Catrinoa will be a worthy contender for Ms. Universe 2018 – which hopefully will not be held in the Philippines so that her win or high placement [fingers-crossed] will not be tainted.

    > On the last picture: the guy in pink looks a lot cuter and amiable than the guy in black with his RBF (resting bitch face). lol.

    World Peace.

    • O AYAN KA NA NAMANG AMPOOTAH KA EHH! DAMI MO NA NAMANG KUDA NA WALA NAMANG KUWENTA. KATAPOS MO MAGDADADA, MAGREREKLAMO AT SIRAAN SI TITO NORMAN, ETO KA AT BABALIK BALIK KA DITONG INGGRATA KA. DI MO BA AFFORD ANG MONTHLY FEE NG WEBSITE KAYA DI KA MAKAGAWA NG BLOG MO? NAKIKI SAWSAW KA LANG DITONG UGOK KA DAMI MO PINAGEEBAK! SHUT UP FOR GOOD! INGGRATANG REKLAMADORA! KEGANDA GANDA NG POST SA TAAS, EEPAL KANG PANIRA ARAW KA! CHAROTELLANG FROG! 😹😹😹 SHOO DOGGIE SHOO! 🤭😘😄

  32. But she still has to complete her reign as Miss World Philippines, di ba? Just asking.

    • beshy! tapos na ang reign nya as mwp. 2016 pa yon and today is 2018 na hihi. beside kay cory ang contract nya so tapos man o hinde pa. papayagan sya ni cory to compete bbp.

  33. Give her the MU2018 crown!!! Pero ayaw ko munang umasa masyado hanggang di sya official candidate, baka gawing official candidate pero tatangalin ni SMA in the middle of the pre pageant dahil sinasabotahe, baka naman hindi MUP2018 ang igagawad ni SMA sa kanya, nasaktan pako nung MW stint nya pero heto ako nagppray that the stars will align and God will guide her throughout the competition.

  34. MU 2018 should be held in LA, LV or NY but not Manila; it will look like lutong makaw if she wins

    • A Catriona win is one win that cannot be accused of as being unfair or home court advantage.

    • The org got so much money from the Manila staging last year. Who cares Kung lutong macau? They owe us a lot. Lol! They have to give us our 4th crown here in Manila.

  35. Thanks for the update Norman! I saw of video of her saying she’s independent when asked if she’s with Aces&Queens. Can you pls confirm if she’s with them. In your blog abt the A&Q presentation, you mentioned that she’s one of the two that weren’t announced. Thanks!

  36. Besides an actual A-list Pinay celebrity joining BBP (Liza Soberano et al), I don’t think anybody else right now has the ability to successfully stage a winning Bb Pilipinas campaign as an independent besides Cat. We all know what happened to Sirene last year.

    Because she’s such a big name in the industry, independence allows her to choose from an army of beauty experts that she is comfortable with, and who would be willing to help her anyway, regardless of camp affiliation. The fact that she’s still working with A&Q and NOT joining any other camp exclusively is just an acknowledgment that, despite all the negative press, A&Q are still better at some of the things that they’re doing.

    • si jonas lang naman ang problema. kailangan ng isang malaking humble pie at jungle juice ng mahimasmasan. lol :)) si maruffa at tito nads(kung kilala mo) mababait at very down-to-earth. sad na nadadamay pati sila.

    • Well! i am an A&Q Fan. But I really like Cat too. so i will not hate her for leaving A&Q. Base sa na fe feel ko. Pag nasa nasa aces sya may mga possibilities talaga yung mga things na ayaw na ayaw natin for cat. mukhang maniniwala na ako na may away between jonas and madamme. Dahil sa pag alis ni cat sa A&Q. Pero speaking of away nila i think kahit bati sila ni jonas eh si rachel pa din talaga ang Panalo last year. its very clear. Pero siguro na fe feel din ni jonas ang anger sa kanya ni madamme and since sasali si catriona so they planned to make catriona as an independent para d ma waste at d ma apektuhan ng tampo ni sma kay jonas. Hayssss. we didnt know about the truth. But lets forget it na about sma and jonas thing. Here we are now in bbp2018. And OMG!!!! The Cat is here!!! Lets waste our time for praying for her success. to be one of the official candidate and especially to win bbp universe. Thats the prayer for her as of now.
      Angela Reyes! Capslock pa din talaga? hehe. pero Na aliw ako sayo ngayon 😂😀.

      • YES, BEBE, ALL CAPS TALAGA ALL THE WAY! WALANG ATRASAN! 😉ATTT IPAGROROSARYO KO NA YANG SI CAT GABI GABI! 😄 NAKO TALAGA YANG SI ESTELLA, WAG AKO! AT TALAGANG WORLD WAR THREE ANG MANGYAYARI PAG SUBUKAN NIYA MAG HOKUS POKUS! HAHA! SUPER HAPPY AT EXCITED AKO TODAY TALAGANG TALAGA!! NAPA ESPLET, FORWARD ROLL, AT TUMBLENG AKO NG FIVE TIMES AFTER KO MAKITA YUNG MGA PEKTYURS! HAHAAHA 🤭😄😌

  38. PAK!!!!! exciting. i hope consistent siya so she can be our MUP! Sana wag sayangin ng BBP ang gandang ito at ipadala sa MGI or SUPRA or wherever. my gosh.

    She’s applying as an independent candidate.. bakit kaya? hmmm may samaan ba sila ng loob with aces???

    but may naiisip ako.. kung bakit siya nag independent and pabor yun sakanya..

    • Pakinggan mo ang interview sa kanya sa Sash Factor. Sabi niya, she’s still working “openly with Aces and Queens,” but she doesn’t work with camps exclusively.

    • STRATEGY YAN, SIYA SI FIFTY SHADES NA BLIND ITEM DUN SA ASHES AND KWEENS PREVIOUS POST. SO ASHES AND KWEENS PARIN SIYA PERO CHEEKLET LANG. I HOPE IT WORKZ!

      • yeah strategy nga talaga. i dont see anything bad or wrong on this beautiful lady para magkaroon ng away between her and jonas. But if away sma to jonas and to save catriona. she should be independent. I Pray it works talaga.

    • I think getting disqualified would work on Cat’s favor…. Remember what happened to Venus Raj…
      A petition was made and she was re-enstated… then after that, she made international pageant history for the Philippines….

      Same with Catriona Grey… She will slay them all!

  39. Excitiiiing!!! Hopefully she is locked to the MUP title. Promising girls like Eva, Edjelyn, Jehza and Gumabao lang nakikita ko for other crowns sa ngayon. #CatrionaBBP2018

  40. Di porker nagpa-veneers MUP na.
    Anlakas ng loob at parang nakakasiguro syang mapunta sa kanya ang MUP.

    • Kaya lalamon talaga ng alikabok ang babaing uuwi ng MUP Crown pag hindi si Catriona ang manalo… ngayon palang alam na yan ng madla… Pero who knows SMA dekada ng bina bash pero SMA parin and a sole Franchise Holder ng MU and others sa Pinas. We shall wait until the announcement of BBP Official Candidates towards the Coronation Night.
