  1. Im worried na yung ugali nyo ang makakaapekto sa pagkalanalo ni Catriona Gray. Medyo below the belt at bastos na kayo. Im sure si Catriona hindi ganyan ang ugali. 🙂

  2. Hmmmm….Not sure about this girl. But “who you know” and NOT “what you know” may work for her. Kumbaga e, may “sash factor” knowing that her mom os a loyal SMA-binibini.

    I have to wait until the announcement of the official candidate if both Aya and Cat will make it. But I have a feeling someone else will snatch the MUP crown from these two. I am just hoping that it will be a good surprise.

    Tigilan na muna ang pag-hype sa mga candidates. Tapos kapag hindi nakapasok as official candidates e galit na galit sa BPCI. And if makapasok man and will get a lower placement ganun din.

  3. Oh my goodness how stupid ang mga baklang pangit. Di pa nga nakikita mga ibang candidates eh nag aaway away between Gray and Abesamis daw. Mamaya pareho palang ligwak ang dalawa hahahahha. Naku I can just imagine kung anong reaction ng mga ito kung matalo si Catriona baka pati ang palaka sa likod ng bahay ni Bong700 at Fabian ay sisishin ang sisigawan.
    Sa totoo lang neither Aya nor Catriona will win MUP. Lalo na itong si Catriona na feeling entitled na pananalunan nya ito. Baka iiyak na naman sya. There will be another Rache Peters and another Charmaine Elima.

    • what makes you sure that Catriona feels entitled to win MUP? fans lang nya maingay…wag mong palabasin na Cat is acting like she already won.

    • Tita common sense dahlin…she is a former MU contender which is the first time in history for Philippine pageantry na ang former MWP eh sasabak sa BB kaya feeling nya makukuha nya ang MUP lakas ng loob kaya mag iiyak na naman yan pag matalo which Im sure gonna happen. Top 15 for her or MGI, pag nagkataon sampal sa kanya yun ng malakas. Sino kaya nag udyol sa kanya na sumali. Who is feeding her the wrong praises?

      • @Jeremi – I respectfully disagree. I actually admire Catriona for being brave enough to enter another beauty pageant after her MW stint. As you have stated, Catriona is a high profile candidate and she must be keenly aware of the risks and potential consequences if she loses. It takes a lot of confidence and a lot of guts to do what she’s doing. She has prepared herself to claim the title. That is the attitude one needs to win, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

  4. Catriona pa rin. Ang pinaka-importante kasi talaga ay “beauty of face.” Between Cat Gray and Aya Abesamis, super obvious naman na “facially-prettier” nang milya-milya si Cat than Aya.

  5. i think Aya Abesamis is lagged way behind schedule in terms of preparation compared to other frontrunners like Cat. But no mistake, i see that she is also a worthy MU rep. Nakikita ko na marami pa siyamg i improve in terms of stance kasi medyo kita mo sa mga candids nya. kailangan nya magfocus sa strengthening ng beauty queen muscles nya kasi medyo nakikita ko pa ang ‘model slouch’. Also I really didnt like eye brow make up with her orange dress kasi its TOO ARCHy and soo thick! it made her face looked rounder. They should flatten it out a bit like korean eyebrows kasi napaka amo ng mukha nya. Actually her beauty grows on you . i would like to see more of her metamorphosis in the coming prepageant activities. i can see that her presence will grow stronger in the coming days. if ma imbibe nya lahat ng trainings ang physical make over nya given the limited period prior to the night of the national olympics , it will be a battle royale between her and catriona.

    • Tugongong had the best answer sa MU2012 but still didn’t win. Why? She lacks facial beauty. At the end of the day beauty pageant parin eto. See MU2016 for example. Why settle for someon na less when there are far greater girls out there waiting to be noticed?

  6. Both beautiful! Oriental at Tisay.

    Saw cat in greenbelt, she is beautiful.
    Saw aya in powerplant mall, she is beautiful.

    Ngayon ang kalampagin nyo yung BPCI, kung ano hitsura gusti nila panalunin. Oriental o Tisay!

    Kawawa naman Si Cat at Aya, pinagaaway nyo.

    • Wala naman talagang issue sa dalawa. Kayo lang gumagawa niyan para i-cover up ang mga dislikes na narereceive ng “chosen one” ng aces. If you read this thread from top to bottom, makikita mo na nagbibigay lang ng honest opinion ang mga pageant fans. Actually pati sa IG and facebook eh same lang ng feel sa Aya na yan. Sure may mga nagsasabi ng di maganda pero that’s the truth lang. What is beautiful to you might be unpleasant to the majority, and the majority will always be heard. Beauty Pageant eto where girls are being judged from head to toe, inside and out. Hindi ito Miss Charity O Miss let’s be nice-nice. People can sometimes get harsh with their words pero that is part of what these girls signed up for. It’s up to them kung pano nila i-handle yan. There is no place for onion-skinned girls sa industry na to.

    • Hindi naman. Sinimulan lang yang issue na yan with Cat nung mga naghhype dito sa girl na to. Yung topic talaga sakaniya is yung overhyping na ginagawa, dinadivert lang ng iba dito kay Cat para mapagtakpan yung main topic. Threatened? Girl please. Lol. 😂

      • I’m more worried dun sa 2 flagbearers ng KF dahil alam naman naten ang issue ni Madam at Jonas. Yung KF girls ang nakikita kong possible na hindrance ni Cat sa MU crown.

  7. Not a basher here but Cat is miles ahead of the competition for MUP. Im bot sure kung may advocacy din ito. Supra for this girl since model naman pala sa US e.

  8. Pwede bang suportahan niyo bets niyo na walang nilalait na ibang kandidata? Kayo kaya sumali sa BBP baka magpapasa pa lang kayo ng application form reject na agad lol. I support #CatGanern pero maganda din naman itong si Aya at hindi siya mukhang yaya please lang.

    • Ayan na naman yang “kayo kaya sumali” ekek. I’m sure wala naman sila desire sumali, fan sila at every fan will voice out yang gusto nila sabihin. Kasali na po yang negative comments sa lahat ng sumasali sa beauty contest. Nagsasabi lang ng truth yung most dito. Yes, may mga laits pero di mo na problema yon. Nasa tao na yan kung pano niya i-receive ang mga comments, good or bad. I am not a huge fan of the two, pero I am wise enough to know ang difference nang chaka at maganda. Most lang naman ng hinaing dito is yung overhyping at fishy na galawan ng Aces diyan kay Aya. Kung sana di inioverhype at hayaan nalang na she shines on her own, mas magiging open pa kame iconsider siya. But for now, we don’t see her worthy of any crown.

      I’m sure her handlers, trainers are aware of the comments here and gigil yang si girl na i-prove yung mga napapangitan sakaniya na wrong. Atat mag-gandagandahan yan. Well, good luck na lang and I wish her well. Haha 😚

    • Good point!
      The girl has dreams too. No need to crush these with negativity.
      BULLYING AND INSULTING never does any good. Besides, she’s beautiful in her own right.

  9. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY SOME OF YOU ARE COMPARING THIS YAYA ATCHAY-LOOKING GIRL TO CATRIONA NA GODDESS NA EVEN THE LATINOS AT NEIGHBORS AY NANGINGINIG NA SA COMPETITION KE CATRIONA. SOME HUGE LATINO PAGES ARE EVEN ROOTING FOR A CATRIONA WIN. SO ASAN ANG COMPETITION? ENOUGH WITH THE UNDESERVING HYPING SA DIRTY YAYA NA TO NA ANG REASON LANG SA PAG-JOIN ES PARA MAGLANDE AT LEZBEE REAL HERE, 26 NA ANG BILAT, WALANG CAREER SA US, KAYA GUSTO NIYA GAMITIN ANG PHILIPPINES SASH PARA SA SELFISH AGENDAS NIYA. ANO ADBOKASIYA? GAGAWA NA BA NG FAKE FAKE ADVOCACY YANG YAYA NA YAN? O PAGLALANDE LANG AT PAGIGING SPOILED BRAT ANG ALAM. HMMM.

    BAGO, I-HYPE AT I-FORCE FEED SAMEN ANG MGA CHOSEN ONE NA BILAT NA YAN, MAKE SURE NA HINDI MGA FAME-WHORES NA MGA MANGGAGAMIT NG SUPPORT NG PINOY FANS PARA SA KALANDIAN AT PAGPAPASIKAT. PWEH! KASUYA NA DIN HA! DI KAME MGA HUNGHANG AT KAKAGAT SA MGA PAKULO NIYO. TSE! HIHIHI

    • PRANKAHANG TALK, YAYA BUSABOSAMIS IS NOTHING BUT A CHEAP VERSION OF KRISTINE ESTOQUE AND RUFFA NAVA. THOSE TWO GIRLS ARE TEN TIMES FACIALLY BETTER SA HINAHYPE NA YAYA NA TO AT DURING THEIR BINIBINI SEASON EH WALA MAN NATANGGAP NA PAGHHYPE. DAHIL ANAK NG PAST BBP WINNER AT SA FAVORITISM NG ASHES AND KWEENS KAYA SIYA ANDIYAN. AND MYGAHD! LOOK AT THAT NOSE AT YAYAHING FACE! MUKHA SIYANG NGONGO NA KAKATAHI LANG SA CLEFT PALETE. SORRY NUT SORRY. PWEH! 😘

  10. Fabie, I’m sorry you saw it that way. I believe that the screening committee and the board of judges are sharp-minded people who will have the same questions in their minds. Catriona should be able to answer them convincingly. I offered some ideas for her handlers to craft good and safe answers to the question. If that is being against Catriona, I don’t know what is not.

  11. I am not against Catriona fans blabbering an MUP-or-nothing campaign. It is their right to do so. However, from a nonpartisan sidelines I think both Catriona and her fans have to be able to give the screening committee and the board of judges a very convincing answer to the question: if she has won the top plum in a rival national contest, and the 5th top spot in its international edition, what is her motive in joining another contest?

    The answer can be very tricky. Immediately, it puts into focus an attempt to revalidate her worth outside herself, as if the MWP title, MW runner-up crown, media attention and cash prizes have insufficient value. I hope the screening committee and the board of judges will not see this as a manifestation of an over focus on winning. A winning mindset is not entirely bad as it generates intensity, determination and effort, and often can fill our lives with meaning. However, obsession with winning restrains people from engaging in a personal journey of self knowledge and finding one’s place in life as an entirely internal and personal process, not one that requires constant competition with others as a measure of self-worth. I’m sure most national winners can attest to this: the pleasure effect of winning does not last, unlike the satisfaction of having done the best you can.

    If the answer is to acquire the MU platform for her advocacy, we may have a problem here. MW has adopted her advocacy as one of the facets of its brand image, in fact been featured in the video clip flashed in the recent MW contest. Professional decorum may make MU think twice about embracing the same.

    My 2-cents worth of suggestion to Catriona as she faces the screening committee and the board of judges:

    • Impress everyone that your ultimate goal is never to prove something to others nor to vanquish an opponent, but to more fully realize your own potential.
    • Convince everyone that winners are people who consistently invest effort, persevere, and keep getting better at whatever it is they do — regardless of whether they win anything.
    • Convince everyone that real winners are people who take risks and are not afraid to lose — because they learn and grow from it.

    Proving to them that your satisfaction of success comes from doing one’s best through cooperation, as amplified by your advocacy, and not through competition, is a sign of emotional maturity and strong personal identity– the mark of a truly confidently beautiful person.

    • Scorg , u say you are not against anything about Cat or her fans … but your explanation loudly says otherwise.

  12. Hmm Catriona Gray is reminiscent of Ruffa Gutierez in Bbp 1993… total package: beauty, height, articulate, popular pero nakuha ni Dindi Gallardo (kahit sumablay sa Q&A) ang MUP. Galawang SMA so I predict Catriona winning MIP or MGI then this Aya or Muriel toss up for MUP.

    Kung nagkataon mas masakit pa to kaysa MW2016 top 5 finish pero alam ni Cat ano pinasukan nya kaya laban lang ng laban malay natin she is destined to be our 4th MU.. pero sa ngayon medyo malabo pa.

  13. Nothing special on her it reminds me Ria Rabajante, Maxine far beauty than her they both oriental beauties…. well any way best of luck…pls. stop tagging to her mother let her recognize by her on merit not because she is the daughter of former bb.plipinas title holder.

  14. On top of her stint at Miss Thomasian Personality 2010 and years of being our country’s premiere top model, I am sure she recieved the most extensive pagent trainning from her mother Desiree Verdadero (Miss Universe 1984 3rd Runner-up) and cousin, Mafae Yunon (Miss World 2003 Top 5). Her pageant/modeling skills and her exotic features that looks like a more fierce version of Maxine Medina and her mother Desiree… Best of all, I know she can speak her mind! She could give Cat some serious competition for the BBP title.

    Could it be between
    Catriona Gray VS. Aya Abesamis in the end?

    As of now, my top 7 are:

    Catriona Grey
    Aya Abesamis
    Monika Santa Maria
    Michele Gumabao
    Muriele Orais
    Ahsinta Manalo
    Eva Patalinhug

  15. after seeing her photos when she arrived here in PH. ang tngin ko sa kanya is she is an exotic japanese. idk pero may pagka exo japanese talaga. Dahil dyan i will give her the MIP title. MIO will surely love her. I think magkakaroon din ng pagbabago sa MI.

  16. I am not from the Philippines. From my point of view, I dont see the hype on this girl. Just sayin…

  17. I don’t know mga veks. I really want an underdog to win this year. Kinda getting bored with the #CatGanerns….hihihihih La lang para talagang kakaturnoff ang mga veks dito kakahype kay #CatGanern.

    • it’s just that Cat is a total package. She has the looks, height, and a great speaker!! She looks presentable as always. I understand why people hypes her that way because I was one of those people who followed her journey since MW. The advocacy is a plus. U should check out videos of her in youtube, u will love her ❤️

    • There’s a difference between “hyping” and sadiyang famous/maraming believers at deserving of praise lang. Hindi ako fan ni Cat pero di mo madedeny na talagang siya ang pinaka ready at full package sa lahat ng aspects out of all the girls na nafeauture dito sa past few weeks. “Hyping”, on the other hand, ay yung Yaya girl na to. Siya ang great example niyan na bigla-bigla lang sumulpot out of nowhere at tinatawag agad na “frontrunner” dahil sa fishy na galawan mga trainers at media na naghahype sakaniya. Yun ang hyping. Ngayon overhyping at full force na sila dahil Binibini season na. Also, your definition of “underdog” is medyo mali din. Hindi dahil maraming di may gusto sayo or maraming nagpopoint out ng reality, underdog na. Underdog is someone na you don’t expect na mameet ang expectations at di favored ng fans or trainers and media, tapos in the end, winner! Example niya is Ara na walang hype, walang criticisms, no expectations na mananalo. So yun yun, friend. 💙🙂

      • Also, wanna add lang! Cat has worked so hard. Time, effort, at genuine na heart ang binuhos niya sa past few years para marating yung status niya ngayon. So super deserving siya sa praise, love, at support na she is receiving now. I hope na people don’t confuse that sa unnecessarily wrong criticism sakaniya. I have a different bet sa MUP. Gusto ko yung Muriel from KF, pero as a pageant fan for so many years now. Hindi na ako die hard fan na pag gusto ko yung isa, chaka na yung isa. Now, kung maganda at deserving ng praise, wala naman masama mag admire, pero kung chaka at alam mong bayaran at ginogoyo ka ng trainers, camps, at media, as a fan at supporter, ivoice out ko ang nakokota kong mali. Wise fan lang. Choose who you make famous. ☺️

      • I agree mickey hehe no offense pero d ko talaga bet si AA. People labeling her as MU worthy is a big no. Pagtatawanan tayo ng kapit bahay for sure. I even find Maxine way more pleasant. She can place but not the major crowns. She seems packaged as a MU aspirant, but please wag.. Jusko Lord. I can sense a similar make-up pattern of Pia Wurtzbach for her face.

        For Cat naman, I think everyone should take note how hard she works and give her full efforts. Makikita mo eh. Not to mention, she watched MU coronation live not just once. She’s smart enough to do the initiative and observe how it is. D na ako nagtaka bakit ganun kabongga ung presentation or ayos nya during interviews palang. I can also see her as someone who’s really strong when it comes to handling pressure. Iba si Cat promise. I hope di nila sasayangin si Cat. She’s one of those gems that u won’t have to worry when she competes for the country.

    • 4m naman , pls do not get bored with cat
      We want an MU winner
      And We have a big chance in Cat
      Aminin hihihi!

  18. she’s just over hyped but not really pretty i guess?!. an daming magaganda jan na aspirants but remained unnoticed because they dont have a background like this girl has. Catriona parin for BBP universe

  19. She looks short
    Maxine is prob at least 2 inches taller
    Nice body though
    If she can talk , I won’t rule her out
    As opposed to how other people refer her to as ‘parang katulong ‘ , she looks like an it girl to me .

    • I don’t know Fabulous Fabian. No offence to katulongs, pero mukha sya talagang katulong in her video. Enchong Dee in drag would even look better than this “it” girl.

      Patangkarin mo lang yung singer na si Dessa and you would mistake this “it” girl as Dessa. Lol.

      Personally I don’t like bashing these young ladies. I am sure there are other among the 80 who are also not that worthy. Problem is, AA was/is overhyped by the blogger and her handlers as if she would hold a candle to Catriona or Monika.

      Advise lang to all would-be candidates whose only claim to fame is their connections, please let us not believe our OWN press releases.

      World Peace.

      • Tenacious Thomas , u have to realize that some of our internationally recognized BQs exude that kind of aura. Di ba naging alalAy ni Uge si Miriam? Tapos si Lara Q security guard? I don’t think Des Verdadero was ever invited to do a film dahil Sobra nga.
        Mas gusto ko ang pangit provided she is tall enough articulate ambitious determined hardworking at Hindi pikon ( attn Rachel!). Remember Janine from the very beginning ?
        Wow your dig at Norman is so brave . U have to understand Norman was in his twenties in the eighties . He adored (and still does ) Des to death so anything or anyone associated with her is golden .
        Still , I enjoy your entry .. as always

    • Aya is 5’9″. She looks like the IT girl to me also. The X factor. My no. pick for MU is Cat.

      The pics & the video posted above don’t do her justice. She has much better pics I’ve seen. If she’s really hungry for the crown and trains really hard for her 1st major pageant, I could see her winning one of the crowns, maybe even a dark horse for the MU crown. One thing for sure, she’ll make Cat work harder for the MU crown.

      • Mary I agree
        She has nice teeth and skin and refined Kung kumilos
        I don’t see her as psrang katulong . Sosi dating sa akin.

        Like u , I want Cat to win . She is tall, sweet , beautiful, and very feminine… and she is Very articulate … way more than our recent queens ( Pia Megan Included) . She has a way with her words that’s not easy to find . She can be compared to Olivia J Olivia C and Nia S.
        I just hope she works out more .

    • Apir Fabbie. Good thing we are seeing something about her. Give this girl the Universe and Lola Jonas is gonna turn this “katulong” into a winner…hihihihi A is for Anik Anik like some of the commenters here…

  20. There are prettier girls than her but I guess the difference is yung galaw ni Aya, altang alta, classy girl. Cat, for me is still the girl to beat, pero wag magpakakampante kay Aya, may ibubuga pa yan sa bandang huli. Do you think hahahayaan lang ni Miss. Desiree V yung anak niya na lalaban ng ganun-ganon lang? It will not be an easy win for Cat, if ever.

    • Trulala. these so called #CatGanern fanatics are living in a bubble. I love Cat don’t get wrong but those who think she is shoo is for the Universe are high AF!!! hihihihi

  21. Catriona pa rin. Ang pinaka-importante kasi talagaa ay “beauty of face.” Between Cat Gray and Aya Abesamis, super obvious naman na “facially-prettier” nang milya-milya si Cat than Aya.

  22. she looks like ms thailand in the year desiree competed she also entered the semifinalist circle….just saying….

  23. Interesting to note, she participated in miss ideal thomasian personality 2010 with miss universe phils 2012 janine tugonon and bbp tourism 2013 cindy miranda.

  24. Just wait for her transformation from being a model into a beauty queen before judging her. She just had her first training yesterday and she already shows improvement.

  25. Nepotism with a capital N! Without her pedigree we wouldn’t even be talking about her. Not on the same level as Cat. Model yes, MU no . Sige Supra Or intergalactic whatever those other non sense crowns.?
    Let’s just all about Cat!

    • Non sense crowns? Meron bang ganon?
      Kung makalait naman ang iba dito akala mo ke gaganda ng itsura.

      Why don’t you just shut up kung wala kayong magandang sasabihin? You can say naman your opinion in a more nice way.

      Just give this girl a chance, may K naman syang sumali, manalo or matalo at least nagka-experience.

      • Hoy tissa opinion namin diba pwedeng sabihin? Ikaw nga kung makalait ka sa pagaassume ng itsura namin eh. Leche ka! Bakit kasali ba kami sa BBP? Sampalin kita jan ng tuod ng orchids. Major tse ka

      • Hoy tissa! Pikon na pikon ako sayo gusto kitang sampalin hanggang dumugo palad ko tse

    • I think you are using nepotism wrongly veks… There is no real evidence that she is being favored. Does she get more attention. Yes but that’s not nepotism…hihihihih

  26. For now, wala pa akong gustong gusto talaga or nakikita na MU material. Maybe I’ll just have to wait the official candidates are selected. Not even the overhyped Catriona Gray nor Aya Abesamis. I’m sure, a fresh face will surprise all of us.

  27. The Catriona fans are subtlely destroying Aya Abesamis by saying that ‘she is not as pretty as her mother Desiree’, ‘that Desiree was this and that’, ‘that Aya will be a hit in Poland and in the Balkans’, etc. The truth is takot sila. Their hyping was similar to the time Catriona joined Miss World Ph which is not applicable in Binibini. Hihihi! Catriona’s fans are starting the hatred campaign and are turning-off so much fans. And Catriona herself should stop feeling ‘entitled’ and Miss Universe-worthy, she should be ready to accept a different crown other than MUP. Lalaban siya sa Bangkok and will be Nawat’s lucky girl as Miss Grand International.

  28. Aya should gun for the MS crown. May dalang sumpa kapag namamana ng daughter ang title ng mudra! Look what happen to,

    Miss Universe Finland 2014
    Miss Universe Sweden 2015
    Miss International Guatemala 2016

    Tama Lang ang training ng AQ sa kanya na limited to make up and Q&A and pag nakuha niya MS crown she’s on her own. Pansinin to sa Poland! Sa mga Pinoy ordinary dating niya pero diamante to sa Scandinavia and Balkans!

  29. Remember mahilig sa surprises and bpci! Ang mga unexpected biglang nagiging bbp universe! Hello ara arida! Hello janine tugonon! Venus raj at shamey supsup!

    Yung mga expected na manalo at may clamor ang tao hindi nananalo sa miss u!
    Hello mj lastimosa! Hello rachel peters!

    Its still everyones ball game! Wag papakampante..

    • Aya Abesamis is A&Q flag bearer. And knowing a&q mahilig sila sa surprises at peaking when its time to peak. I believe mambubulabog to sa Finals Night.

    • idk if nasubaybayan mo BBP11 enough (or baka ako yung hindi nakasubaybay enough) but as far as i know Shamcey, in Tito Norms’s words, was the perennial favorite to win MUP2011. She was never a surprise winner. With Janine there were rumors before na si Madam daw mismo yung nagsabing sumali sya ulit so i guess not counted din as surprise yun. Si Ara yes surprise yun pero super gandang surprise naman

  30. The same sentiments when Desiree competed in Bb 1984. She was bashed to death when she snatched the Bb Universe from top fave Catherine Jane Brummitt who settled for the Bb International crown. Guess who had the last laugh after the finals of Miss Universe 1984

  31. I was thinking of the same thing…na di sya mukhang beauty queen..walang bakas.

    Pero guys, check Jonas’ and Sir Nad’s posts in IG! Aces and Queens was able to transform her to a contender!!! Beauty queen na beauty queen na sya….

  32. A is for Abandon…yes abandon the desire to be a beauty queen. Maybe she can just continue to be a model. She is not as striking as her mommy. She’s got the countenace of Ces Drilon and Dulce combined and that’s a lethal combination. Not my type to be our Ms Universe because that’s the only title I care about.

  33. The problem kasi is that expectations were built when the blogger hyped this certain “alcoholics anonymous with Fifty Shades of Grey”. As if calibre nya si Catriona – -with matching suspense in applying near the deadline. As Angelica Panganiban would say “umarte lang na naayon sa ganda”. Lol.

    She looks like a younger Pokwang with shorter hair. No offence to Pokwang. Lol.

    World Peace.

  34. Parang anak po siya ni Miss Ariel “woman of substance” Calingo at ulikbang kambal ni Maricar Reyes. Chaka din po yung nose niya, mukhang dulo ng deflated na balloon. honest observation lang po. Haha ✌🏻😬

  35. ok siya sa still photos pero in motion— i agree sa sabi ng ilan dito, mukha siyang katulong (sorry kung politically incorrect po). kay cat na ang universe, bahala na sila sa “other crowns”!

  36. Hey beauty is the kind that launched successful campaigns in MU. Think Miriam, Janine and Maxine. She will be Catriona’s biggest competition if she is just as fluent and comfortable as #CatGanern when speaking. Aces and Queens are making sure they cover their bases in case #CatGanern stumbles…hihihihi

    • ANG BOBO NG COMPARISONS MO. I LOVEEEE LOVEEE YOUR POVs PA NAMAN, POR EM. PERO I DONUT AGREE DIYAN. THINK 1990s is different from 2018, FILIPINO SUPPORT/SASH FACTOR, SASH FACTOR/FILIPINO SUPPORT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SOLELY BEAUTY HERE HA, I KNOW NA BRAINY YUNG OTHER 2 AT DIFFERENT TOPIC YON. HIHIHIHI🤭😘

      • Miriam, Janine and Maxine all have the soft oriental looks. And guess what they all got far in the competition. hihihihi. It doesn’t matter what era. Beauty is beauty. Brains is brains. It’s more about the packaging a beauty queen that is more different now to make them stand out.

      • djusko angela reyes people are judging right away based on a handful of pics/videos. This is why A&Q love finding girls are just bashed to death in the beginning. That is because they know a transformation could actually be done on them if they win. Look at how Janine was treated early only to prove her detractors wrong. Watch out veks. live and learn….hihihihihi

    • Daming #CatGanern fans dito hihihihi. Watch out for that darkhorse this year mga veks veks. I am going to predict that these girls are going to fight hard against #CatGanern. especially sandra lemonon. hihihihi

      • TSE, POR EM! HIHIHI! KALOKAKA! MAGANDA NAMAN SI MAXINE AT MIRIAM NG MILYA MILYA KUMPARA SA YAYA ATCHAY NA TO. AT SAN BANDA ANG SOFT ORIENTA FEAUTURES? CHAROTELLA! ANG TIGAS NG ARRIVE NG FACE NG GIRL NA TO, PARANG MAG 2 2 MONTHS ADVANCE TAPOS TATAKAS AT NANAKAWAN KA SA 3RD WEEK. CHERETTE! 😁

      • AND ABOUT KAY JANINE, DI BA DI PARIN NANALO KAHIT THE BEST ANG SAGOT? KASI DI NGA PANG MISS UNIVERSE ANG GANDA. SASH FACTOR AT INTELLIGENCE LANG NIYA ANG MAGDALA SAKANIYA SA TOP. PERO HANGGANG RUNNER UP LANG PAG DI TALAGA MAGANDA. TSE! TOROY! HIHIHI 😘😋

      • Hihihi Angela Reyes. But but but. She has the best placement after Pia compare to the more beautiful and candidates like Venus and Ara… See the point is you can never count anyone out until the crowns have been passed. I have a feeling that the competition is going to get stiffer for #CatGanern as some girls will not let her just win easily. hihihi

  37. FIRST OF ALL, HINDI KO ALAM KUNG SINO ANG BABAENG ETO UNTIL NAGSIMULA ANG PAGHHYPE NG ASHES AND KWEENS SAKANIYA 2 or 3 WEEKS AGO. NOW SA LOOKS, MUKHANG OFW DOMESTIC HELPER SA SAUDI ARABIA. DI PORKET MUP AT MAY KONEKSYON ANG NANAY, WINNER NA DIN AGAD. DI MAN MAGANDA ANG NANAY DIN NIYA AT SUS MARIA, JZUN JZUN, 19 KOPONG KOPONG PA YON. NAG-EEVOLVE PER DECADE ANG DEFINITION NG BEAUTY. AT THIS TIME, ANG BEAUTY NETONG GURL NA TO AY DI CONSIDERED NA FACIALLY BEAUTIFUL NG MAJORITY NG PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD. TIGILAN MO AKO SIGULANON SA BEAUTY IS SUBJECTIVE CHORVA MO. OO BEAUTY IS SUBJECTIVE AT NAGKATAON NA MAJORITY NG POPULATION OF THIS WORLD EH HINDI ATTRACTIVE ANG GANIYANG FACE. MINSAN, WAKE UP WAKE UP DIN. MAG COCOMPETE PO INTERNATIONALLY ANG MGA WINNERS AT YOU WANT TO FIND SOMEONE NA MAY APPEAL SA BUONG MUNDO, DI LANG SARILING TASTE. FUN FACT: NAG-APPLY YANG AYAYA NA YAN SA MGA MAJOR MODELING AGENCY SA US AT DI NATANGGAP. WHY? WALANG APPEAL.

    ANG GUSTO KONG MALAMAN SA MGA NAG HAHYPE SA BABAENG ETO ES KUNG NAGSUSUPPORT BA KAYO DAHIL NATUTUTUWA KAYO NA 2ND GENERATION BEAUTY QUEEN SIYA, O BAYARAN KAYO NG ASHES AND KWEENS NA YEARLY YEARLY NA LANG NA MAY PINIPILI NA GIRL NA GAGAWIN ANG LAHAT NG PANG HAHYPE AT BRAINWASH SA MADLANG PEOPLE? MINSAN QUESTIONABLE DIN ANG TASTE NG ASHES AND KWEENS SA BILAT NA FAVORITE NILA EH, GAYA LAST YEAR! 🤔😂👌🏼

    PERO TIGNAN MO NAMAN, DI NA BASTA BASTA NA SSWAY ANG FANS SA KUNG SINO SINO LANG NA GIRL NA PINOFORCE FEED SA ATEN. ANG MASASABE KO LANG ES SORRY NOT SORRY KUNG SA TINGIN KO ES DI FIT SA TOP 2 BBP CROWNS ANG BILAT NA TO. I COULDN’T IMAGINE HER WEARING THE MIKIMOTO CROWN OR THE MISS INTERNATIONAL CROWN. AT ANG PINAKAMALAKING TANONG: ANO BA TUNAY NA REASON NIYA SA PAGSALI? YAN DAPAT ANG TINATANONG SA MGA GIRLS. GUSTO LANG BA MAGPASIKAT AT MAGLANDE?

    SA NGAYON, ANG BET KO PA LANG AY YUNG ISANG PRETTY GIRL DUN SA KF AT SI CATRIONA NA I TRUST NA MANALO MAN SA BBP AT KUNG SUWERTIHIN SA MISS UNIVERSE EH HINDI PAGLALANDE AT SELFISH GAINS ANG AATUPAGIN. GUSTO KO NG GIRL NA MAGANDA, MATANGKAD, AT MATALINO. YUNG KAIINGITAN NG MGA NEIGHBORS AT LATINOS. PERIOD. 🎤💢

    • MINSAN NAKAKASUYA NA DIN ANG MGA SPOILED BRAT NA ANAK NG MGA PINOY ARTISTAS, PAST BEAUTY QUEENS DITO. DI LAHAT NG GUSTO EH DAPAT MASUSUNOD, ISANG MALAKING WAKE UP SLAP DIN SIGURO NUNG NAGABROAD TONG BILAT NA TO AT DI NATANGGAP NG MGA AGENCY. LOL! HAYYYY NGA NAMAN SA MGA ANAK NG KUNG ANU ANO DITO SA PILIPINAS. NEPOTISM AT ITS FINEST.

  38. Thats why she is a model. no doubt. But still Catriona For me. But im sure may crown din ito. All i can say for now! Kating kati ako na sir norman! Ang tagal ng screening day!!! uber excited na may halong kaba! sobra! ang batch na to there are so many internationally competetive girls. Basta nasa tamang training, experiment and transformation. Batang May laban! lels.

  39. Forecast:

    Aya Abesamis – Universe
    Eva Patalingjud – International
    Michelle Gumabao – Globe
    Catriona Gray -Grand International
    Vicky Ruston -Intercontinental
    Wynona Buot -Supranational
    First RU -Karen Gallman
    Second RU – Zara Carbonnell

  40. Porket pure pinay beauty pang MUP agad. Bt di nlng kau kumuha sa mga tabi-tabi ngkalat kaya ang pinay beauty dun. Kalurkey. A is for Aya I say N is for No.

  41. kahit ulit ulitin ko video, kahit anung tingin ko…hindi talaga magandA…wag I associate name ng nanay nya.

  42. The mother is prettier.
    Her face sometimes looks a bit masculine.
    She’s more model than beauty queen.

  43. Did she submit her application personally or was it done by someone else for her? Just wondering if she “just landed” #fishy

  44. Ilagay KO sya sa grupo ni Michele Dee..anak ng dating beauty queens na Hindi mga kagandahan…wild card quadrant kumbaga..

  45. Her entry has certainly heated up the competition for the top crowns. I see at least three women who are potential MUP winners. It’s anybody’s ball game for now. Once the official candidates are announced, then the real completion begins. Exciting tunes ahead!

  46. Ang ganda ng batch ng mga contestants dito kaysa last year. I see more potential and more chances of winning the crown. Sana manalo uli tayo ng major and minor crowns this 2018!
