  1. Stella Marquez de Araneta will not choose someone associated with another beauty pageant especially someone who’s a recent winner and rumored to win.

  2. btw, i love her spontaneity. she seems very passionate. what i like about her is her ‘raw’ness which is refreshing from the pageant patty herd of ladies. she’s just relaxed and gave a lot of character PLUS she really talked a lot about her advocacy and the vital role she plays of its objective. Yun ang hinahanap ko kay AYA . btw, i enjoyed her video along with karen gallman and catriona. kabahan yung mga iba dyan hihihihi

  3. medyo palaban to in real life kasi siguro nasa competitive sports.. mas gumaganda siya as the days progress . i think siya mismo nabibighani sa iginanda ng sarili nya hihihihi however, malaki pa ang kelangan nyang iimprove chest down. pero with the rate she’s goin, she’ll will be in fighting form in time for the pageant..

  4. Michele was such a pleasant surprise at the
    phil history museum event. her tan highlights
    her features. it was amazing how fast she turned
    around from athletic to feminine.

    it’s great to discover that she is articulate as well

    she has a built-in brand/identity and advocacy to
    a certain extent

    I think sports’ positive contribution in womens (people in general
    actually) lives should be her focus, she is already
    comfortable talking about it. it is something that
    we do not associate with beauty pageants normally

    as for a back story: we are seeing it right before our eyes
    her transformation from an athlete to a beauty queen

  5. Miss Universe Philippines. Ligwak dito si Calabasa Gray! But I hope Ms Gray will compete in Miss Earth!

  6. I love Michelle w that tan. Ang ganda..She is one of my bet for the crown. Though my mup is Cat. My personal opinion lang pwd si Michelle any crown even mup but not the mi. We all know how the japs love small boned delicate women. Matuto na tayo last yr

  7. A very excellent speaker. Derived from her experience as a volleyball anchor in the PVL and UAAP leagues as well as her PBB exposure.

    Amazing 5’10” height too.

    Clearly a formidable competitor. Here’s hoping she loses more excess weight before pageant night.

    Michelle for Bb. Pilipinas International!!!

    • I think she’s doing good. It takes two weeks to lose 20 lbs and after that plateau na. So may time pa talaga sya. Salamat na rin at pursigido syang pumayat. I hope Stella Marquez de Araneta likes her.

  8. Fuck! Cat’s toughest competitor for the crown!

    I love the spontaneity!

    I love the perky personality!

    I love the achievements!

    Magkakatalo na lang to sa pasarela!

    • I think the rawness in modelling works on her advantage, at least hindi aral na aral kung maglakad. And my God, once she talks ypu’d be awed at how articulate Michele is.

  9. She truly has the goods and has the potential to transform into a formidable candidate/representative, pero in a sea of beautiful faces yung mukha niya yung una kong nalilimutan for now, I think her team needs to work on that more.

  10. Sya yung pinakaaabangan ko among the newbies kc yung transformation from Sports to Kabaklaan, ganern😋hihiji
    Parang from hard to soft and thick to din na changes divahhh😗
    She deserved a crown😇

  11. PAGEANT PATTY FILLER QUEENS SHOULD TAKE A NOTE SA GURL NA TO. SOOO TIRED NAKO SA MGA “I WAS BULLIED”, “I WANNA HELP AND INSPIRE OTHERS”, “I WAS A CHOOCHOO ONCE”, “I OVERCOME A CHUKCHAK BEFORE” CRINGEY CRINGEY SPEECH. 2018 NA AT ANG MENTALITY PARIN NG MGA PAGEANT PATTY GURLS NA TO EH STUCK SA EARLY 2000s O LATE 90s NA “BEAUTY OR BRAINS” ERA PARIN. WE WANT A GIRL NA MODERN, GENUINE, AT TUNAY SA WORDS AND SA ACTIONS.

    BE LIKE THIS GURL MICHELLE(AND CAT TOO!!😻) NA TRUE, NATURAL AT WALANG HALONG PRETENSE. BE REAL! MOST OF THE GURLS NOW EH WALANG SARILING IDENTITY. HINDI PORKET ANG CURRENT WINNER MAY SINUSUPPORT NA ADVOCACY OR CAUSE, DAPAT GAGAYAHIN NA. KUNG WALA KANG ADVOCACY OR WALANG INTERESTING STORIES ABOUT YOU, BE PROUD AT ACCEPT NA IKAW YON AND THAT IS THE THING THAT WILL MAKE YOU RELATABLE. MOST IMPORTANT THING IS YOU SHOW THE REAL YOU, HINDI YUNG SOMEBODY NA YOU THINK THE PEOPLE WILL LIKE.

    MAY NABASA AKO SOMEWHERE NA ANSWER NI CAT SA QUESTION NA REASON FOR JOINING BBP. SHE SAID NA SHE WANNA PURSUE HER DREAMS, PERSONAL GOALS BA. TAPOS WHILE PURSUING THOSE “DREAMS” KASAMA NA DIN DUN ANG MGA ADVOCACY AT CHARITIES NIYA. MOST GIRLS WON’T ADMIT NA THEY JOINED BECAUSE GUSTO NILA SUMIKAT, MAG-LOVE LIFE OR IPURSUE ANG MGA PERSONAL AGENDA NILA. PERO BILIB AKO KAY CAT AND MICH, WALA PA TAYONG BBP GIRLS NA AS GENUINELY DOWN-TO-EARTH AS THEY ARE. ENJOY AKO LISTENING SAKANILA TALKING ABOUT THEIR PASSIONS. KAY MICH SPORTS, KAY CAT MUSIC. YUN SIMPLE CUTE THINGS NA GANUN ARE SORT OF NA INDICATIONS NA THESE GURLS ARE REAL. KAYA ONE REASON DIN YAN NA NAGING FAN AKO NI CAT. DAHIL TO BE HONEST, MWP JOURNEY NIYA EH I WAS NOT A FAN. DI KO SYA BET NON. AFTER STALKING SA SOCIALS AT LISTENING/OBSERVING SA MGA INTERVIEWS NILA, I CAN TELL NA THEY HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS. KAYA NAMAN ETO ANG MGA GIRLS NA I AM SUPPORTING, GIRLS NA I WANNA SEE REPRESENT OUR COUNTRY, GIRLS NA I WANNA SEE SUCCEED AND HAVE A FABULOUS LIFE. ❤️

  12. This girl is destined for her…
    I can see a future mix of the body of Irene Esser, the athleticism Ariadna Guttierez and the brains of Janine Tugonon.

  13. Ava ava ava this girl has personality!!! She’s on my magic circle for MUP. #CatGanern, Gallman, Gumabao, Wynonah and Muriel… I think she will win a crown.

  14. Eto dapat yung pinupush na ‘frontrunner’ ng camp niya kasi eloquent na, may ganda pang hindi na kailangang i-explain.

  15. Sana maging rampadora siya like Wyn Marquez. I feel the same vibe sa kanya. May fierceness! Of course, dahil din siguro sa athletic background niya. Parang she’s not a quitter! I love this girl. From athletics to a beautiful beauty queen transformation. Honestly, who would’ve thunk!

  16. She’s so eloquent! Very natural and fresh… too bad Cat has MU in the bag … or does she? In another year I think this girl should win BBPU but I think she’s too old to return next year isn’t she?

  17. Latinos can appreciate a sporty girl. If she claps at BBP 2018, I want Vegafria and Bessana to IMMEDIATELY appoint her as Filipinas rep to RH.

    GONDOH ng ilong!

  18. Michele’s pleasing personality is radiating in this video. She comes off as down to earth and warm. I like that she advocates sports 🏐 as it’s very different from what the other candidates are pushing. And no sob 😭 story. A big yes! ✅

    It’s a 6-minute video and it is not boring at all! She is comfortable in front of the camera.

    Michele has my vote for a crown! 👑 May she shine bright on coronation night!


    Let go of those fake lenses, my dear. Show off those natural and beautiful brown eyes 😉

  19. Beautiful. Especially the second picture in T-shirt. Young Alice Dixon-ish.

    Area for improvement: The upper lip / upper teeth kinda makes her appear she had cleft palate successfully operated on. How to remedy?

    World Peace.

  20. Michele is a silent killer. I know she will drop her bomb at the right opportune time. She is fit for Miss Globe.
