  2. BBP should NEVER be a PITY PARTY pageant! kesyo mashonda na, gora na sa top crown. nasobrahana naman yata ang charity ni Madame. Pati crown, dino donate na rin. wag naman. Rightful recognition should be based on merits alone.Having said that, Catriona should be the rightful BBPU. Kailangan din natin ng rampadorang bakla sa ma boca sa MGI like Wynona Buot who’s also my bet for bbpu title after catriona. I can see her slay the speech and final question in MGI while looking ravishing in a cary santiago couture.

  3. tita norman or anyone here who can post all the 25 ages girls birthdays. to know who are battling in MI in their group.dahil hinde lahat silang 25 eh pasok sa MI age req. Before the MI pageant they should still 25. yung mag 26 during the MI pageant or after ay hinde na pasok. Only those girls who will turning 25 before the pageant. or turned 25 months b4 the pageant. Medyo kinakabahan ako sa ages issue coz affected ang title distribution. thats why i want bbp to focus in universe only. swertehan kung maraming young girls na very MI Material para ma save ung MU material na mailagay sa MI. i hope that MI will change their age limit to 26 or if pwede 27. nothing wrong with this. But oh well its their decision.

    • oh my gosh! sorry for the error. it supposed to be Tito and not Tita. nag ha hung na din kase phone ko while typing. Sorry again tito norman…

  4. It’s sealed! Gusto ko Yung naging line up ni Angela Reyes except for MI, Eva Patalinjug pa rin. Maganda si Ahtisa, walang Duda kaso parang may tinatagong kamalditahan!

    Sana lang sa huling pagkakataon ng MGI sa bakuran ng BPCI eh Sandra Lemonon nga! Type ni Angkol Yan, may US residency na Latina ang features!

  5. I don’t think BPCI have to revised its rules/age limit but maybe they have to make it clear from the start pa lang with the Binibinis (who are overage for MI) that if in case they will be crowned BB International, they will not be sent to any pageant lalo na the MI in Tokyo.

    But.. the conflicting part is.. wala naman tayong magiging representative sa pageant na yun.. ang mangyayari, are we going to send one of the runner up ba? weird di ba? hmmmm

  6. Jehza for Miss International. Catriona is of course Miss Universe Philippines 2018. Wynonah – Supra, Karen – Intercon, Michelle – MGI. Muriel or Ena for Globe.

  7. I am trying to recall if Bb Pilipinas crowned a candidate that had participated in an international beauty pageant such as Miss World.

      • Sorry for what? Your comment is non-sequitur to my question, and that is if you understood my query lusierra.

    • Not Miss World, yet. However, Carlene Aguilar was already Miss Earth Philippines when she joined BbP and eventually had the right to represent the country in Miss World 2005.

    • Aside po kay Carlene Aguilar (ME, MW), wala po. Because yung 3 franchises (MI, MW, MU) have been with BBP for a long time.

  8. Catriona Gray (Model) was born on January 06, 1994 in Cairns…MAKING HER 25 already…born under the sign of the ROOSTER…as her birthdate is still under Rooster NOT Dog.

  9. Only the best, deserving, and well rounded candidates should win the top crowns and placements……and not due to technicality and their “last chance” to win a crown. Also not due To their inside connections within The organization. If this is how they would place and determine their queens then, they are destroying the credibility of this prestigious franchise. You guys got lucky with Venus, Janine, Ariella, Shamcey, and Pia because they were all well deserving queens who represented the country and brought honors to the franchise. But if Norman is suggesting that a certain candidate should automatically win the top crown due to her age, then why have a contest?

    • Dear Ver,

      How dare you say that the blogger is suggesting that Aya should win. I mean, that Aya should be Ms Universe. I mean, that Aya should take the crown. He is not suggesting that at all. He is not even planting that seed of possibility to influence whoever can be influenced. The post above is meant for healthy and insightful discussion. Do the math!!!

      =)

      World Peace.

      • I hope not…..and why mentioned a specific candidate such as that Aya girl??? She was nowhere near on my list of potential winners???? I was making a valid statement about picking the rightful winners for the respective crowns.

      • Thomas…..that Aya girl??? Love your passive aggressive approach hahaha 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  10. BPCI should revise their age requirement. Dapat max 24 or 25 y/o lang. Para may equal chance ang lahat ng candidates to every crown. Kabawasan sa sakit ng ulo nila at judges yan sa totoo lang.

    • BEBE EUREKA, POR ME NAMAN, I DON’T THINK NA DAPAT I-REVISE ANG AGE REQUIREMENT KASI THERE ARE A LOT OF 26 and 27 YEAR OLDS NA DESERVING DIN. TO MAKE THIS FAIR, DAPAT MAGKAROON LANG NG ONE STRICT RULE NA WHOEVER IS THE BEST PERFORMER SA FINALS NIGHT, REGARDLESS OF AGE, SIYA ANG MISS UNIVERSE PHILIPPINES. NO SWITCHEROO. NO HOCUS POCUS. HINDI DAPAT GAWIN BURDEN SA TOP PERFORMING GIRL ANG PAGIGING “OVERAGE” FOR A PARTICULAR PAGEANT NG 2ND OR 3RD BEST GIRL THAT NIGHT. IF YOU WIN THE MIP CROWN AND ABOVE KA SA AGE REQUIREMENT, THEN THAT SHOULD BE YOUR PROBLEM, NOT THE BEST GIRL’S. FAIR AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY LANG PARA SA LAHAT NG AGE. MISS UNIVERSE PHILIPPINES IS MISS UNIVERSE PHILIPPINES.

      • I agree, the runners up should replace the winner who didn’t meet the age requirement not switching titles that is already suited for winners.

      • agree angela reyes. concern ko din ang ages for title distribution. if ibibigay naman sa runner up ang MI dahil over age na sya. poor girl. masasaktan sya and unfair. and pano if over age na din ang runner up so pipili sa mga hinde nagplace. but i believed minsan during deliberation/title distribution si age ang nag dedecide at hinde mismo ang result ng performance/Q&A ranking. If hinde kaya taasan ng international pageants ang age req then bbp should focus only in MU. separate ang MI para naman lahat eh age qualified at no age issue during deliberation. basta kung sino top performer koronahan na agad!

    • Apparently the younger ones are not mature enough and their world views are limited.

      • “Apparently the younger ones are not mature enough and their world views are limited”
        THIS STATEMENT IS SO CLICHE, CHESKA. I’VE MET A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THEIR TEENS AND EARLY 20s NA MORE MATURE PA SA MGA MID 20s PABEBE PEOPLE. I GUESS WE SHOULD NOT GENERALIZE LANG. 😘

  11. I don’t care about the other girls.
    Miss Universe Philippines crown is for Catriona Gray peroid.
    And if something wrong happens or if someone elses win the crown it would be world war III.

  12. Only the best, most deserving candidate should be crowned Miss Universe Philippines, regardless of her age. All the other secondary crowns they can haggle with however they wish, but the MUP title should be reserved only for the top candidate.

    • I fully agree. And I don’t understand why the blogger wants us “to do the math”, when it is not Math that is applicable, but Logic. Lol.

      This is a non-issue at all that doesn’t deserve a “healthy and insightful discussion” as urged by Mr. Norman.

      World Peace.

      • True….if the older candidate is rightfully picked for MU crown and she won the judges vote due to her overall performance, that’s perfect….she’s deserves it. But to favor her over the rest Due to her age then that’s quite arbitrary and a huge slap to the other girls who are more deserving to compete for MU.

    • @ Melanie and @Thomas : Good afternoon/morning/evening.

      Indeed. But at the very least, it serves as information to those (of us) who are unaware of the MI age limit.

      And now I CHALLENGE BPCI to give Artajos (27) a crown, if only to make good on the lack of appropriateness of comments (not here) that “thunders” are admitted merely to serve as fillers.

    • I agree, shouldn’t be an issue but why the blogger seems to insinuate an issue? Meow 🐱

  13. – Janicel may had been best in swimsuit and EG, but nonetheless flunked Q&A, Pia, on the other hand, just trailed closely, scored extra points landing her to MUP
    – Maxine far outscored Kylie, despite the latter giving a good answer, the 15% (Q&A) by the time was not enough to beat Maxine
    – Rachel was pretty consistent the entire competition. The Q&A score-boost in 2017 worked well for her, Katarina/Mariel may had answered better but it was just few points ahead

    To be honest, ang paranoid nyo. The MUP winners for the past years earned it, and not through some age-restricting rules. I’m gonna be happy if Cat win MUP but if some dark horse steals the show on March 18, it’s fine by me. Sabi nga ni Demi, if it’s meant for you, it’s never going to miss you.

    • Kylie had a Pia 2.0 aura during bb pilipinas 2016. I think it just won’t work out if she won BBP.
      For me, Kylie may have the face, but overall package is not MU caliber.
      On the other hand, when she competed for MI, it was so perfect for her. Glad she won!

      • Wag na ngang ipilit. Kylie was meant for Miss International. At least nanalo sya diba?

    • I think this will not be a problem for the top scorer, as she is virtually assured of the top title Universe. The danger is for the 2nd and subsequent placers, where a lower ranked contestant will be assigned to International if all higher ranked women are past the younger eligibilty age bracket for International. Most likely the jury at finals will be reminded of the age eligibility rules for each franchise, when they decide who goes to which international competition.

    • Don’t worry . MSA is already 80 . She has to give . No one lives forever . I’d be surprised if she didn’t give up BP in 5 yrs

      • There’s this rumor nga dba.. last year pa.. that somebody tried to acquire the MUP franchise.. but di binigay ni MUO. kay BPCI pa rin..

      • BPCI will remain the franchise for MU coz of it’s reputation, if ever MSA will leave BPCI, the chairmanship goes to the Aranetas becoz their grandfather had created the said charity.

    • Pwede naman sila pa rin ang franchise ng MUP. Sana lang gumawa sila ng isa pang pageant exclusively for MUP lang!
      Yung mga runner up ang ipadala sa mga pageant of the same age bracket like Miss Globe .

      • I don’t think they will do that. Hindi sya economical in the business sense. Maraming contest tapos paisa-isa winner ang pipiliin.

  14. Mas gusto ni Cat mag indie kasi may issue within aces. chos
    Aminin na natin, mas welcoming ang kf but yun nga lang pupush ka talagang maging 7/11 na tindahan ang ngipin mo, bukas 24/7 sa laki ng veneers. Hehe
    Pero pag sa trainings, mas gusto ko pa rin aces. Sana stop na rin yung mga heels na sobrang taas ng platform. Pangit na tingnan. Haha

  15. ANG BOBA LANG NG TECHNICALITY CHOOCHOO NA YAN. ALAM KO BAKA SI CAT ANG TINUTUKOY NI TITO NORMAN DIYAN. PERO IMAGINE LANG HA, KUNG SI CAT NGA ANG NUMBER ONE SA FINALS NIGHT TAPOS YUNG 2ND TOP SCORER NA IPAPADALA SA INTERNATIONAL EH OVERAGE NA, BAKIT ANG BEST AT NUMBER ONE SA FINALS NIGHT NA RIGHTFULLY AT DESERVINGLY NA NAPANALUNAN ANG UNIVERSE CROWN ANG DAPAT MAGSUFFER? BAKIT HINDI YUNG OVERAGE GIRL ANG IBABA ANG RANK AT ISWITCH SA QUALIFIED GIRL NA TAMA ANG AGE FOR INTERNATIONAL? DAPAT KUNG SINO ANG TOP PERFORMER SA FINALS NIGHT, SECURED NA YANG CROWN, AT BAHALA NA MAGSWITCH SWITCH SA OTHER LOWER CROWNS, DAHIL ANG BBP UNIVERSE NAMAN TALAGA ANG PINAKAIMPORTANTE SA LAHAT.

    ON A KINDUHHHH DIFFERENT NWOTEZ, I AM NOT EVEN WORRIED SA MGA OVERAGEZ AT GURANGGUTELS NA YAN EXCEPT KAY BEBE MICH NA MUKHANG NASA RADAR NA NI MADAM DIN.(AND MAYBE SI VICKIE DIN BECAUSE YOU KNOW NAMAN THE “ABS CBN” CONNECTIONZ). ALTHOUGH I KNOW NA TWO OR THREE LANG ANG MAGKAKATOTOO DITO, PERO, PERO, PERO IN A PERFECT WORLD, ESTE, UNIVERSE RATHER 😸 ETO ANG PLACEMENTS NA SHOULD HAPPEN⬇️👇🏻😊💫
    👑UNIVERSE – CATRIONA GRAY
    the people have spoken. tinapos na ni gurl ang laban.
    👑INTERNATIONAL – ATHISA MANALO
    have you seen her latest photos? mygash, eto yung gurl na nasa mind ni bea rose nung nasa salamat doc siya, ang gurl na she was trying to be to please the japanese people. this gurl is screaming 7th MI crown por the felepens.
    👑SUPRANATIONAL – ANJAME MAGBITANG
    (i know na iba na ang franchise daw pero pero pero whynut?!? gusto ko sa bbp parin😂)
    anjame, anjame, anjame, i see a mutya datul 2.0 sayo. yung beauty na unassuming at sweet na type na type ng supra org.
    👑GRAND INTERNATIONAL – SANDRA LEMONON
    alam niyo sa totoo lang, naghihintay lang talaga si baklush na nawat na we send a tall at beautiful alta gurl. Yan ang type niya. I see a pattern sa mga past MGI winners. Check niyo background nila and you will see what I mean!😉
    👑INTERCONTINENTAL – VICKIE RUSHTON
    this gurl has the prettiest face sa batch na to. mukha siyang virgin mary doll! pero, pero, pero sa totoo lang parang sa Miss World siya bagay. I mean, yung purpose niya at everything about her, very MW talaga. but since nasa bbp siya, eto talaga ang nakikita ko na crown na pwede sakaniya.
    👑GLOBE – WYNONAH BUOT
    she has that ann colis vibe at edgy beauty na feel ko bibigay ang 2nd globe crown. If this gurl joined sa 2010-2013 era, siya ang bet ko sa one of the top 2 crowns. Pero as I said sa mga previous posts ko, pageantry es evolving. Always yan. Actually if she wins the globe crown, after ng reign niya, pwede siya sa MWP, dun sila maglaban ni Ann Colis kung sasali si Ann next year.

    👑SA MISS WORLD NAMAN – bet ko si MICH GUMABAO
    yung facial beauty at body type niya may not be a top bbp crown material, pero eto yung gurl na pwedeng i-transform at imold sa taste ni Julia Morley. Gusto ko yung unique advocacy niya, na pwedeng gawin BWAP, sa sports at kids na very MW. Well spoken pa! I dunno pero I just have this funny feeling na she could bring that 2nd MW crown sa felepens. Would be exciting to see ang labanan nila ni Katarina Rodriguez, kung sasali si katja sa MW.

    ➡️➡️➡️BACK ULIT SA AGE NA MAIN TOPIC NAMAN👇🏻😸
    PERO, PERO, PERO I KNOW NA SA HULI SI MADAM PARIN ANG MASUSUNOD SO KUNG GUSTO NIYA TALAGA ANG GURL😽, WALANG AGE TECHNICALITY AT CHOOCHOO SITUATION ANG MAKAKAHADLANG DIYAN SA BBP UNIVERSE CROWN. 👋🏽🎤💢😍

    ✌🏻&💙

    • ADD KO LANG HA, SIGURO SOMETHING WE COULD LEARN DIN SA VENEZUELA NA WE ALL KNOW NAMAN NA MOST SUCCESFUL COUNTRY SA PAGEANTRY ES THEY DO NOT CHOOSE A GURL BASE SA PERSONAL TASTE AT KUNG ANO ANG BET NG COUNTRY LANG NILA, THEY CHOOSE A GURL NA ALAM NILA NA IF YOU BRING THAT GURL TO ANY COUNTRY, SHE IS CONSIDERED NA BEAUTIFUL. HINDI NA TAYO EARLY 2000s ERA SA PHILIPPINES NA WE SEND GURLS NA MAGANDA LANG SA MGA PINOY. WE SHOULD CHOOSE A GIRL NA MAY UNIVERSAL BEAUTY AT APPEAL KUMBAGA. HINDI LANG BASE SA PERSONAL BIAS TASTES. THAT ES IF GUSTO NATEN MALAMPASAN ANG RECORD NG VENEZUELA. I DUNNO PERO NAEXCITE LANG AKO KASI ANG LAPIT NA NATEN EH. IN LESS THAN A DECADE, SA LIFETIME NA TO, WE HAVE A CHANCE TO BE THE NUMBER ONE COUNTRY SA PAGEANTRY. 😉

      • The anecdote of Janine Tugonon…She was bashed to death when she won BbPU.She’s very ordinary looking and worse “pangit” daw…But when she landed in the US, she was very much appreciated by all especially the foreigners. It even solidified more when the MUO are all praises for her beauty.that’s the time she was able to say to herself daw, “Ay maganda pala ako.”

      • OF COURSE THE STAFFS AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND MUO WILL PRAISE EVERY CANDIDATE. PART NG JOB NILA YAN. I’M REFERRING TO THE VIEWERS ALL OVER THE WORLD NA WHERE JANINE IS NOT CONSIDERED UNIVERSALLY BEAUTIFUL. IN MY OPINION, JANINE IS A PRETTY GIRL BUT MY OPINION MAY NOT BE THE SAME SA MAJORITY NG PEOPLE. ALSO, JANINE’S STORY IS DIFFERENT FROM THE CURRENT BBP GURLS’ STORIES. PANA-PANAHON YAN SABI NGA NILA. SO IT’S IRRELEVANT TO BRING HER SA TOPIC NA TO. 😊

    • Dear Angela,

      You know, sometimes you are right. Lol. I agree in most of your choices.

      World Peace.

    • no to Ahtisa. just because it worked for Kylie doesn’t mean we need someone like her. She’s too Kylie. I need someone who’s got her own identity. I would prefer Muriel or Queen Jehza Huelar.

      Buot would fit Intercontinental or Universe. Dark dusky beauty like McGarry.

      Ibigay na ang Globe kay Karen…hihihihih…

      • THE ONLY SIMILARITY KYLIE AND ATHISA HAS IS THE SHAPE OF THEIR FACE. OTHER THAN THAT, WALEY NA. STYLING LANG ANG SOLUTION DIYAN, AT MGA IILANG PINOY LANG NAMAN NAGCOCOMPARE SAKANILA. ALSO, HINDI LANG SA FACE SA PICTURE ANG BASEHAN, KASAMA DIN YUNG PERSONALITY AT YUNG ART NG HOW YOU MOVE AND PRESENT YOURSELF. I WORK SA FASHION INDUSTRY AND SA BRANDING NG MODELS SO I HAVE A KNOWLEDGE KUNG ANO ANG BET OR TYPE NG EACH COUNTRY WHEN IT COMES TO BEAUTY. VERY PARTiCULAR YAN AND HINDI ETO SOMETHING NA YOU CAN CHANGE IN A YEAR. YUNG CHOICES KO ES NOT PERSONAL OR BASE SA FEELINGS KO SA EACH GURL. SOME OF THE GURLS NA I MENTIONED ABOVE EH DI KO LIKE AT LOVE, PERO NUMBER ONE PRIORITY ES HOW YOU CAN PLEASE THE CLIENTS. WHO ARE THE CLIENTS? THE MAJORITY OF THE FANS ALLOVER THE WORLD, ORGANIZATION, JUDGES, AND TPTB NA US COMMONERS DONT SEE. SAME LANG ANG PAGEANTRY, MODELING, AT SA MGA MOVIE STARS. CONSTANT YAN NA IN THE BACK OF THEIR HEADS MERON SILANG “IDEAL” PERSON NA THEY WANNA HIRE. SO MANY FACTORS ANG DAPAT I-CONSIDER. TAYO KASING MGA PINOY, USO ANG KAPAG MAY SOMETHING ABOUT THAT PERSON NA MEDYO SIMILAR SA ATEN, WE IDOLIZE YUNG PARTICULAR PERSON NA YON TO DEATH TALAGA. BUT 4M, I SEE YOUR POINT DIYAN SA MGA CHOICES MO. 😊👍🏻

        TO MAKE THIS SIMPLE SA LAYMAN’S TERM, IMAGINE YOURSELF SELLING A DURIAN CANDY AND A DRIED MANGO TO A FOREIGNER, THINK KUNG ANO ANG MAS MAGUGUSTUHAN AT SOMETHING NA THAT FOREIGNER WILL LOVE. SURE, A DURIAN CANDY IS FUN AT MAY EXOTIC NA FEELZ, PERO AT THE END OF THE DAY ANG DRIED MANGO NA MAY UNIVERSAL(NO PUN INTENDED) APPEAL PARIN ANG SUCCESFUL AT WINNER SA TASTE. I MEAN, YOU CAN NEVER FORCE NA THE PEOPLE WILL LOVE THE DURIAN CANDY NA EVEN YOU BELIEVE SA SARILI MO NA YUN ANG DAPAT. IN OUR CASE, PUT YOURSELF ALWAYS SA MIND NG MGA FOREIGNERS DAHIL THESE GURLS WILL COMPETE SA INTERNATIONAL STAGE, WILL BE JUDGED BY FOREIGN PEOPLE. WE NEED TO LOOK BEYOND THE CROWN DAHIL SO MANY THINGS ARE HAPPENING, MANY FACTORS COME INTO PLAY BEHIND THE “BEAUTY” IN THE PAGEANT. 💙

      • and may I add to that while Ahtisa is undoubtedly pretty, parang wala siyang ngipin sa itaas. I find it distracting that’s why I don’t buy the idea na she looks like a doll, that she’s fit for MI, etc. Anyways, just my opinion.

      • hihihihi… Eto ang mga Pinoy just because it worked for one doesn’t mean you have to fit the rest into the one that work. Ano ito manufacturing plant? hihihi. Mag isip isip naman.

        Jehza Huelar has the qualities (not just beauty) that Miss International will adore. Beautiful porcelain skin, soft delicate facial features and the classy demeanor. Ahtisa looks bitchesa to me. Bitchesa na doll!!! hihihihihi

    • The judges would be briefed by BBPinc regarding criteria and technicalities of the international pageant, They would follow it to the T regardless of whoever is the top scorer. Stella still prevails who she wants to send to international pageants.

  16. OMG😀
    23 pa pala c Queen Jehza hihihi 😄
    May nx year pa kung dimo seryosohin now basta huwag lang pabuntis hihihi🤗

    • HINDI SYA QUEEN!!! Please stop forcing the issue with this girl. So many others more deserving!

      • Venus Rah , I agree she is not a queen yet . But do not discount her to o early in the game . She has among the most pleasant faces and the fittest bods in the competetion .

      • Maganda ang styling ni Queen Jehza. Check out jonas IG post on her. Super gorg. hihihih

  17. Remember 2015 Janicel 2016 Kylie and 2017 Mariel . All of them might have scored higher (might) than the chosen mup but their age placed them w the prestigious bbp pilipinas international crown

      • haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamariel for MUP

  18. I find the premise of this post silly that doesn’t deserve a healthy and insightful discussion at all.

    It is like saying, if all things were equal ( both beautiful , both deserving ,both intelligent , etc), the older one will win. Nonsense since no two girls are equal. There are three of four candidates that are clearly deserving of the crown even if they are not 26 or 27. And go d3cide based on age is simply stupid.

    World Peace.

    • Thomas, first of all, Norman’s post is useful to us who are not fully aware of the age limit for MI and MU. Second, if based on raw scores, a candidate places second and should therefore be sent to MI, but turns out to be 26 yo, what would you do? How would you resolve that? How do you think BPCI should resolve that? What’s the most fair and logical solution? That’s the point of Norman’s post right? To trigger this exchange of ideas. And you call it silly so quickly?

      • Dear Ben,

        I called Norman’s post silly after thinking about it thoroughly. Lol.

        You, I call silly quickly.

        World Peace.

      • Silly post ka dyan..look how long this thread is now! And you yourself keep commenting! Tse. Norman=1, Thomas=0 !

    • The post isn’t silly. It isn’t just meant about insinuating sacrificing someone who deserves more in favor of the other because of age.

      The main point of the article is that there are a lot of girls who are borderline not qualified to win a specific crown which makes it more tricky for BbP judges and SMA during finals night. For instance, if Trixie places second overall, she cannot win MI despite her overall score so she will probably get a different crown. This is also a tricky situation with the girls because they know that their odds of winning a crown just got lesser.

      Lastly, it tells you how this edition is going to be a bloodbath as there are so many girls that won’t be able to do a multi-peat in the future if they don’t win a crown. Meaning, lots of possible wasted beauties due to age.

      Also, we don’t know how the minor crowns are ranked this year.

  19. Tito Norman, who among the age 25 going on 26 in nine months?
    There are a lot of these aged 26 girls who are worthy of being Miss International. Sayang naman.

  20. you cannot seriously think that MUP will be given to Artajos ? … Catriona Gray should be a lock for MUP; Huelar or Gallman can be Bb P International

    • Who in the world is thinking that?? Artajos is not even in the running for a runner up slot!

  21. MUP – Cat Gray or Aya Abesamis or Murielle O.
    BbP-Intl – Ahtisa Manalo or Jhezza Huelar or Anjame Magbitang
    BbP-Grand – Wynonah Buot or Michele Gumabao
    Bbp-Intercontinental– Michelle Gumabao
    or Aya Abesamis
    Bbp Supranational- Muriell Orais or Aya Abesamis
    BBP-Globe-Michelle Gumabao or Murielle Orais or Jhezza Huelar

    1st RUp Anjame Magbitang or Vicky Rushton
    2nd RUp Ahtisa Manalo or
    Jhezza Huelar

    • C2f I like your choices
      You just have too many per crown
      Pls make up your mind

  22. Interesting post!

    Wow so Meowalicious’ biggest competition so far gets eliminated – Gallman and Gumabao likely won’t go higher than Grand/Supra/Intercon/Globe or whatever remains after International.

    This actually looks good for Huelar! Jonas Gaffud seems keen on her and she does seem like a very sweet, hardworking girl who has seen her share of personal pain and resurrection. While I don’t think she has the rare qualities of hunger, confidence, discipline, personality, and aura for MUP, I certainly see her doing well as a potential MIP.

    I’m also starting to look at Buot a bit more closely now.

    • Masyado yatang preoccupied si Huelar sa boyfriend nya at hindi makapag focus sa contest? I’ve seen Jehza and IMHO she’s beautiful but I sensed something lacking in her.

    • Being a doc didn’t help a lot of doctor candidates at previous editions of MU

    • Yeah being brainy is not a guarantee like that bio major and summa cum laude grad from UP na pinadala sa Universe si Lizbeth de Padua.

      But I’m happy for Lizbeth now because shes helping epilepsy patients.

  23. see this is the reason why I hoped and believed that Cat should have joined in 2019 (or even 2020) instead. The possibility of swapping placements is very high. She deserves no less than the MUP (and MU crown) pero sobrang sakit kapag nadaan sya sa technicallity. This possibility couldve been aboided if she joined at a later edition. Eto rin naman yung hindi ko ma-gets sa current team ni Cat. Bakit kailangang madaliin ang pagsali? haay. And i still believe isa to sa reasons why she went independent kasifeel ko Aces shares this same sentiment. Ohwell, since si Cat na rin naman ang nagsabi na she feels this is the right time, I have no choice but to support her 100% and hope na hindi sya ma-technical come finals night

    • *technicality
      *avoided
      *Aces shares the same sentiment na dapat next year pa sya sumali

    • I think Cat went the independent route because she wants to avoid any potential conflict of interest claims with Mama J and MUO, even Pia. Esther Swan & Mama J are very close on a business level and by social media accounts on a personal level.

      Meowbabe’s big picture here. It’s Universe all the way for her. And I’m not talking about “just being there.” She wants to bring it back HOME.

      • at first yan din yung naisip kong reason (and possibly totoo naman din na yan talaga). mejo mas nagmemake sense lang nang konti for me yung reason na sinabi ko sa taas. May nasense din kasi akong kakaiba dun sa post ni JOnas sa IG na “finally, 2019 is out of the picture”. Parang nahirapan sya ipost yun

  24. Alam naman kasi ng BPCI ang mga patakaran sa patimpalak at sila mismo ang lumalabag diyan. Sabi ng BPCI 5’6″ ang height requirement pero may 5’4″ naman nakapasok. Palitan dapat ng BPCI ang age requirement na 17 -27. Dapat hayaan na lang ang mga gurang ang mag-retiro sa mga patimpalak at bigyan pagkakataon yung mga bata para walang problema sa mga edad.

    • Gloria Makabayan…i AGREE with u…sa height measurements, 5’6 daw ang minimum pero sa real conversion ano ba talaga ang 165 cm in height? 168 cm? parang may MALI talaga…sa AGE naman dapat STRICT na din ang lola hanggang 25 or 26 na lang talaga…aminin natin may mga BILASA na talaga tignan

  25. New Placement after this age grouping:

    Bb Universe Catriona Gray
    Bb International Buot or Anjame
    Bb Intercontinental Michele Gumabao, Orais or Aya
    BB Grand international Buot or Gumabao
    Bb Globe Aya, Orais
    1st runner up Anjame
    2nd runner up Ena

  26. Universe: Gray
    International: Manalo
    Grand: Buot
    Supra: Gumabao
    Globe: Baino/Abesamis

  27. daming magaganda at mabubuti at totoo
    nawa sila ang magwagi

    no to fake boobs, teeth and flat puwet
    no to bilbils
    no to gahaman sa national title

  28. OMG. Aya or Muriel for MUP then. Muriel can be Supra maybe. Aya can be Miss World too. Catriona can join next year!!!

  29. Binibini 17 Atisha Manalo might win the Binibining Pilipinas International. She already has the Sweet Doll Face that the Japanese base pageant wants. She only needs to have a good performance in the evening gown and swimsuit competition which I know she will do well because she is being trained by A&Q. Have a descent answer in the Q&A portion of the pageant and she might as well have the crown on her head.

  30. What i dont want to happen is someone getting the MU crown even if she’s not the stop scorer (just because of age); and the top scorer getting the ibternational crown just because she’s qualified age-wise.

  31. Uh, this post is somewhat relevant as to who are now left qualified for the BbP-International crown. I have Wynona Buot in mind. She can best represent the Philippines in the Japan-based pageant. And how about the beautiful Murielle Orais? She will be my BbP-MGI.

    That’s all.
