  4. Looking at how SMA Chooses MUP and MIP over the years, I have a haunch that it will be:

    MUP: Michelle Gumabao or Aya Abesamis
    MIP: Catriona Gray

    Cat may well be our 7th MI winner.

  5. Ever Bilena yuck!
    Some of the ladies don’t embody that very cheap brand.
    No wonder the awards were given to those cheap looking contestants.

    • Im sorry naman kung you consider Ever Bilena as high end brand at kung yun lang ang alam nyong brand hahahahha. Kahit man lang NARS, Urban Decay, Iglot, or kahit man Bobbi Brown ok na sana pero Ever Bilena hahhahaha

  6. Wishlist:

    MUP – Catriona Gray
    MIP – Muriel Orais

    Tapos 3 runners-up na ipapadala ni madam sa mga minor pageants as a stepping stone for experience tapos sali ulit ang runners up para masungkit ang 2 major crowns. Ewan ko na jan sa MGI, MG, at MIC, for sure MS is out of the list na.

    Completing my top 10:
    Eva patalinhug
    Jehza huelar
    Wynonah buot
    Sandra lemonon
    Aya abesamis
    Mich gumabao
    Karen gallman
    Ahtisa manalo

  7. although, I prefer stella araneta with
    darker blonde hair
    I must admit, she looks great
    a little bit retro, a little bit goth

  8. The choice of endorsers for this Filipino cosmetics brand reflect the type of market the company is targeting. I’m sure the criteria used were based on the known followers of these four and the image they project to the aspirational market. I just hope that the announcement of their brand endorsers were done on the pageant night itself, not prior to it. Just as pageant enthusiasts are just beginning to know the candidates and to whom will they gravitate towards, the owners of the brand should take some time to study well who among the candidates is most appealing to their target market and therefore should best embody their brand essence. Perhaps, based on their assessment now, the four are the frontrunners, based on the social media noise these four generates. But current or prior media exposure is not a guarantee of leadership in this year’s edition where all the candidates present outstanding multi-dimensional beauty credentials. This year is a very tight race.

    • It’s called RESEARCH. These winners have been in the public eye for quite some time. You just need to do some research.

      • Exactly, there is a need for research. But– more in-depth research. As of now, based on the limited knowledge about all candidates, these are the ladies whose respective personal brands the owner finds congruent to the desired brand positioning of his products, and who the owner thinks appeal to their target market segments. Admittedly, the four are included in my long list of potential winners. My wish for giving more time to research is to get to know more of the other potential brand endorsers who can best communicate to and identify with the target consumers of Ever Bilena. Who knows in the end the outcome will still be the four. But we have given the chance to others.

  9. Catriona is a doll, that face is gorgeous! Orais reminds me of Miriam Q.
    Cat MPU
    Michelle MGI
    Muriel MIP
    Vicky MGP

  10. I hope they’re not stuck with that brand for major pageants. Bilena colors are anemic and look watered down. Their campaign looks like Maybelline 5 years ago.

    Congrats to Cat just the same.

  11. WOW MICHELE G LOOKS SO GOOD HERE. Very fresh aura , beautiful natural looking smile . I hope she gets MUP or runner up . Don’t waste this girl.

  12. A good sign for more great things to come for Cat 😇🤗😁👩‍❤️‍👩👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩👏💋👄❤

    • Aya looked her best in that video, bakit di sya nag win ng award? Sign na ba ito na yung nakaaward may Crown sa March 18? #AllTeaNoShade

      • I guess her best is not good enough .
        But I agree Aya looks good and has potentials.

      • I believe the owner of this Filipino cosmetics brand sees Aya’s beauty and personal brand as not the type their target market will identify with or aspire for. Aya’s Malayan features and skin tone may appeal more to markets that are not targeted by Ever Bilena.

      • Fabie, it’s not a matter of having Malayan beauty archetype and skin tone. I think it is more of Aya’s image being upscale that it appeals to a market segment that is not targeted by Ever Bilena.

      • Companies chose their endorser because of belief that they can deliver. Doesn’t matter if you’re an alta or a masa, it’s the charisma. You either have it or not. Enough of excuses.

      • Exactly– the charisma! And the charisma of the winners, to the brand owner’s mind, appeals to the C and D market that it tries to reach. There’s nothing wrong with that, is there?

  13. yay!
    my favorites
    aligned with the winners

    murielle ❤
    michelle she has such a great profile
    catriona it goes without saying
    vickie her face is meant for print ads

  14. May balita naba about Miss Supra Philippines Franchise? Sino kaya ang new Owner si Empire ba? Si Arnold Vegafria? or si Ben Chan?

  15. All four are deserving of the award.
    It’s between Cat and Michelle for the top plum. I am seriously bothered by Michelle’s thunder thighs. Sure, guys might find it sexy, but not in the pageant world.

    • Omg….I completely concur!!! Those are huge thighs, muscular for sure since she is a pro volleyball athlete, right??? Nonetheless, her exotic look will be a threat comes coronation night.

  16. Cat is so beautiful in that close up there, any look and she slays it easily wow. The other girls I expected to also grab some awards namely; Ahtisa, Karen Gallman, and Jehza. What happened? They should’ve easily grabbed them dahil pang cosmetics model ang mga fez nila.

  17. Catriona Gray – MUP
    Karen Gallman – MI
    Anjame Magbitang – Supra (She reminds me of Ana Fernandina Buquid, raw & fresh)
    Michelle Gumabao – Globe
    Sandra Lemonon – MGI
    Wynona Buot – Possible major spoiler to snatch a major crown. Watch out for her.

  18. Ang ganda talaga ni Catriona. Nai-imagine ko na pwede s’yang gawing Gona Dragusha, pareho silang classic beauty. Kaka-excite na.

    • agree! also i see her looking good in Oxana Federova style. Straight hair with a flowy dress. this girl can move and i see her rocking and twirling a flowy dress, hopefully she wouldn’t over do it though. just my 2 cents
