  1. During ss performance ni catriona i thought she will be place 2 or 3rd dahil parang nklangan ako sa baklang galaw nya during performance. But when announced as best in ss wow! I never expected that award for her and there i realized being best in ss is not being baklang bakla. It just to carry your ss effortlessly beautiful and confident. Her opening in ss is great. That pose. But duing EG she really nailed this round and she deserved that Eg gown award. When announcing the top 15 nakakakaba pa din kahit alam mo at sure mo na pasok sya. Grabe 2nd to the last na tinawag well i think sinadya para more hiyawan. Nakakainis lang si richard sa pag announced ng number. Akala tuloy ni cat sya na. During Q&A its cat and ahtisa nailed their Q&A. No trace of rehearsed/scripted answer. During annoucement of winners when almost some frontrunners already called nakakakaba pa din ng bongga pero andun pa din ung feeling mo na si cat ang tatawaging MUP. and when they called her as MUP wow!!! Sobrang saya na halos maiyak iyak ka din. Yung puyat mo hinde nasayang. Its an answered prayer talaga. Everything on her was on point. That sun and 3 stars is a genius idea pero mas maganda kung sa MU gamitin yan. I think panalo pa din naman sya as MUP kahit d nya sinuot yan. But nonetheless its awesome! Great idea to gain the attention of Filipinos and other people around the world for being patriotic.
    Its really MUP or nothing talaga. Ganyan din Sinabi ni cat sa pep interview na its MUP or nothing. So meaning may plan pa pala sya sumali if ever d nya nasungkit ang MUP. Its nice but its great that she won. Hoping and praying that everything will be okay. No changing of title and dethronement. Para ma represent ni cat ang PH sa MU this year. I heard it will be held in China? Possible. Think why china was in the semis last year. Hope its not true. But if ever in asia again i think japan is a great choice as MU host. Think why mikimoto came back on MU stage. Pero australia sana or vegas again.

  2. Anong hanash ni Maggie Wilson at Bea Santiago sa pagkapanalo ni Catriona ng Best in Swimsuit? Di sila masaya

    • I think catriona deserved that award. Ang best in ss naman kase hinde over baklaan ang performance. Dapat effortless lang. sa MU walang nanalo now a days na over bakla ang rampa. Na more paseksi effort. Walng galaw galaw ng buhok and so on. I thanked catriona for not doing this thing. Ung paghampas balakang nya during press presentation na ala clenci during mgi. Buti d nya ginawa sa finals magiging over confident kase sya don. Yung iba sa mga girls like gallman sobrang likot nya which is not suited for MU.

  3. Hey there! The Real Jeremi Baklang Panget here!

    As usual, mali-mali na naman ang mga predictions ko at mga sinuportahan ko. Baklang Engot na papansin lang po talaga – pasensiya na! Wala po kasing pumapansin sa akin sa totoong buhay, kaya dito ako nagkakalat ng katangahan at kapangitan ko. 😦

    ❤ AMPANGET-PANGET KO PO TALAGA! EN AY TRULI LAB ET!!! ❤

    That is all, bye!!!!

  4. BACKSTAGE DRAMA: KAREN GALLMAN BITCHING TO HER FELLOW KF GIRLS ABOUT NOT WINNING THE MUP CROWN.

    I’M SURE YOU GUYS WATCHED THEIR INTERVIEW IN UKG AND ANC. DID YOU NOTICE HOW KAREN LOOKS AT CATRIONA WHENEVER SHE TALKS?

    THOSE JEALOUS EYES.

      • YES, THAT’S HER.

        SHE SHOULD CHANGE HER ATTITUDE BEFORE ITS TOO LATE. THAT (PROBABLY IS AND) WILL BE THE CAUSE OF HER DEMISE.

      • jusko ha inday Karan hah, ang aga2 hah,…tigil mo yan dai kung ayaw mong makuyog hahahaha char lungs!

    • guni guni mo lang yan baks, alam ni karen na si Cat talaga ang mananalo , magkakaibigan yang mga yan .Wag kang gumawa ng istorya para siraan ang mga beauty queens natin.

    • Tang ina mo, Tsismosa kang palaka ka. Sa Bakla diyan na nagkakalat na si Karen Gallman is a bitch at inggit kay Catriona. Ito oh sampalin kita ng video, napakagaan ng awra nila sa isa’t isa and it showed that they are contented with their placements. Panira kang bakla ka sa tagumpay ng mga Girls Natin.

    • I love Karen and think facially she is the most stunning of all the ladies (Cat included) this year BY FAR but really have to question the judgment of some folks. Karen’s IG clearly says she wanted MUP but I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and leave all this chismis as that. Perhaps a supporter of hers is still upset with the results. No way was anyone beating Cat this year for MUP. Not her, not what’s her name, or that other girl, or so and so.

      The only way Cat would have been upset is through politics and the question to that answer has been answered in the negative. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t doubt SMA and crew and the camps all have their politics but the sponsors are speaking up and when money talks everyone listens. International clappers don’t bring business. Winners do. Maybe for the camps money and connections will get a girl more attention and guidance, but when ABS-CBN and the likes are paying the bill they get what they want.

      Cat was the clear choice. Even in other forums Cat has already risen to frontrunner status. The Puerto Ricans are hilarious… alam nila that Cat is back to avenge the crowning of Shirley del Villa Blance del Vanderpump or whatever her name is and “ella no viene a jugar” (she’s not coming to play). Actually the Puerto Ricans seem to love Cat as a group. So do Americans and they are the first to overly criticize any Filipino queen because of Pinoy fans.

      Colombia is appointing a delegate and some Camille Arribaarribaorsomethingorother is being touted as a potential candidate for a Pia v Arianna Grande rematch. She’s glamorous and all but no other girl has Cat’s pageant credentials or personna. She was born to be the creme de la creme of beauty queens and that’s that.

      When the World told her no, Cat listened to what the Universe had to say to her.

      World Peace na lang to all and enjoy your bet’s placements.

  5. kung totoo yung chika about MJ at Acesand Queens back way in 2014 na grabe ang inabot na hiya ni MJ kay MamaRu of AQ after BBP na sinabihan siya na walang utang na loob in public abay baka posibleng mangyari kay Catriona ito dahil lingid sa kaalaman ng lahat ang stylist at make up artist ni Cat now ay same kay Rachel Peters and Elizabeth Clenci na known KF girls kaya mas malapit sa KF camp si Cat now.Ingat ingat nalang Catriona.

    • subuk subukan lang tlaga ni Gayfood or ng sino mang ponxo pilato ng A&Q na kantiin ng di maganda c CAT baka kuyugin cya ng sang baklaan at lumayas s bansa sa hiya ng wala sa oras!!!! hahahaha char lungs…

      CUIDAO Mamaru!!! CUIDAO…. lol

      • Patapon na dapat si Jonas “Charice Pekpek-Oh” Gayfood sa Indognesia. Mukha naman siya tae ng indonesia. Dun siya magtrain ng mga basura kamukha niya. Yumabang at lumaki na ang ulo figuratively at literally ni bakla.

    • Maganda na din to para ma-humble yang si Jonas. Baka lumaki na ulo. Somehow, this will get him back to his senses and be grounded.

    • tama ka jan @MickeyMouse, subukan lang talaga nya, makikita nya ang kahihiyang hinahanap nya! arengs hahaha don’t us GAYFOOD don’t us haha

  6. Congratulations Catriona!!!!!!! lakompaki kahit wala akong boses pagpasok sa work kinabukasan at kahit walang benta!!!! basta nanalo ka!!! im so happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!! Road to MUP2018 naman Cat, dito lng ako, kami!!! laban lang ng laban!!!!!

    Sa mga bashers, MAMATAY KAYO SA INGGIT!!!!! hahaha char lungs!

  7. What’s the deal with her and Mama J. Earlier sa comp, Mama J and the A&Q insta account would post photos of Cat Kahit na independent sya. They made it clear that she is under the guidance of AQ still. Pero now parang may disconnection between the two? Cat never mentioned AQ sa recent post nya. Mama J also hasn’t posted anything about cat… I just saw him leave a comment sa ig post Nya saying “She said she is independent so I won’t claim” tapos may peace sign emoji…

    I maybe reading into it pero parang may ganap na drama

    • Yes, walang A&Q sa post ni Cat. Pero nandoon ang name ng best friend ni Pia. Bahala sila! Basta I ❤ Cat. 😀 😀 😀

      • mamaru kasi c Gayfood…ang laki ng ulo na parang may Hydrocephalus at literal n yumabang sa laki ng ulo hahaha if i know sya din ung nsa issue n bet qnin ang Miss U PH n franchise kay madam Stella hahaha langya db tapos ngayon hilig mang issue at magmarunong, sorry xa peo tapos n ang kabungan nya! bayot sya mukhang kulangot nkakagigil!!! hahahaha hayblood lng charaught! hahaha.. gayfood mamahinga ka na lang at ipagpatuloy mo nlng ang pag train ng mga tga ibang bansa para may pagkakakitaan kpa, un nga lang itinatakwil kna ng pinoy..babush!!! hahaha

    • Ang dami mo nang sinayang na oras sa blog na to. Sana ginamit mo na lang, para mai-ahon sa hirap ang mga magulang mong bigo sa anak na walang kwentang gaya mo.

    • Bring it on darling. Shes already a winner. No words can take that away from her nor change that fact. Kisses!

    • Bring it on darling. Shes already a winner. No words can take that away from her nor change that fact. Kisses!

    • At the very, very least, you should have stayed silent. Then you would still have an ounce of credibility and people would still give you the benefit of a doubt that you have an underlying story/reason behind your negativity and classless behaviour. Now, your post, without a doubt, proves that you are a certified TROLL.

    • Hoy baklitang laos na tuyot at dugyot manahimik kang vruha ka at baka tumama sa pukekay mo ang isang meteor at mag vavu ka! Karma is a bitch and a goddam witch dahlin’!

    • ay naku day…ang ksarili mo nlang kausapin mo…MUP na si Cat pero ikaw ganyan knlang….inggitera k prin !!! tseh !!!

  8. Twice crowned. Twice blessed. I believe a third one is happening in a few months. It comes in threes as they say. Congratulations to Catriona for a well deserved victory. 👏❤️

    • AH BKIT MAY I JOIN NA NMAN BA SYA SA MISS PHILIPPINES EARTH? GAWIN NA RIN NYANG APAT, SALI NA RIN SYA SA MUTYA.

      • Hindi s’ya dapat sumali sa Miss Philippines Earth at Mutya ng Pilipinas, baduy ‘yung dalawang pageants na ‘yon, kacheapan.

  9. Hola! Pasilip lang.

    So happy for Cat and the rest of the ladies who won. Ahtisa – nilagay ko sa MI (popular na pinupush nf fans nya) or runner up muna. im glad they got MI alam ko tuwant tuwa fans nya.
    I watched it live, I felt the stage looked small pero impressive sakin yung stylized structure (in some angles mukha syang manhood lolz) put based on photos online ang flashy naman ng lighting and effects. i really enjoyed the format and the theme but ‘ive yet to watch it on TV, sabi nyo hindi maganda mga camera views. i thought it made their legs look longer so i’ll check pa pag sobrang lapit na naman sa crotch area.

    the 3 stars and the sun ear climbers for me (na mahilig sa accessories) was genius. i know some of you thought that it was sort of gimmicky but i don’t mind it. give na give si girl i represent ang pilipinas so give na natin sa kanya yan and her styling team for consciously thinking of the little things na ma pipick up natin lahat.

    samantha obviously was disappointed – medyo irritable na sya sa novotel but still hustled with all the faneys surrounding her. nag pa picture naman sya but i sensed na she wanted some alone time na. my heart bleeds for kayesha chua who just seemed stunned she didn’t get it. we knew she was good and she knew she performed pero ayokong i push ng i push sa kanya sumali next year kasi of course hurt pa yan sila now.

    michele – awwww i really didn’t like her gown 😦 pero im happy na iniikot sa foreign pageant pages video clips ng mga girls natin na ang gagaling sumagot. even eva na super lengthy na namesmerize ka nalang na words per minute nalimutan mo na if tama ba yung sinagot nya or hindi oo ka nalang 🙂 nakaka proud lang. sad for sandra but was so happy she was honest. akala ko plus points na yun to at least get her a supra crown or a pageant na hindi mabigat weight ng q and a.

    i really love aya (sobrang fine ng features nya, regal, mukang mabango) but i was disappointed na wala syang moments na may spark unlike say shaney tormes na pak na pak pasarela or samantha bernardo na project ng project. medyo sad din yung gown nya. parang walang glow si aya nag compete kagabi. i mean parang ummattend lang sya and i was hoping na tatameme mga cat fans and i aacknowledge na malakas na threat sya. love her pero nag go with the flow nalang sya. pati gown nya for me kulang sa bitamina.

    i heard from some insiders most likely sa China ang MU (but that’s just because someone someone is going to China to I don’t know talk about the possibility of hosting?) I mean may infrastructure, may funds, mukang ok naman relations natin so ok lang sige na rin. kung yan si cat mas matindi pa performance sa MU kesa sa pinakita nya kagabi – venue will no longer be an issue. personal best ni cat mismo makakalaban nya.

    as for the crowns – hindi na ako nag rereklamo kasi minsan na akong nag comment na please palitan na nila kahit galing nalang sa divisoria. kasi ummm mukhang doon nga galing. last minute change daw yan either the day prior or that day itself lang since napasaringan ni cat and nandito si shawn. i hope you guys will be nicer when it comes to commenting about the crowns kasi it really is a start. mabuti nga napagbigyan na tayo. having said this – naka sagap din ako ng mukang credible chismis naman na may na commission na gumawa ng totoong crowns next year. apparently na meet ko yung designer last night pero ayaw sabihin ng source ko sino dun eh medyo nalito lito na rin ako sa mga kinamayan ko pero keri hindi ko na pinush kasi respeto na rin sa agreement nila.

    so yun lang – mukang mapagbibigyan naman tayo sa mas bonggang crowns soon 🙂

    hi basil if totoong nagbalik loob ka na!
    hi also to te folks here na kasabayan ko dito.

    • Hi Ate Lai! we mishyu! Ang bongga naman nung about sa new crowns for next year. Sana totoo talaga

      • haiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!! oo nga sana totoo pero mukang malaking chance na totoo pero ok nako muna for now sa new crowns.

    • Hi Laila. Any inside scoop on why Cat chose to go independent for her BbP stint? Totoo bang may walkout na naganap? By the time na announcement na ng winners, bakit parang wala na yung bottom 15 and 5 of what was in the top 25?

      • hi george,

        sabi ni cat she wanted to work freely with other designers, artisans and stylists. sabi ng malalapit kay cat, it’s because na neglect talaga sila nung 2016 na batch i train ng puspusan ng aces kasi busy sa pagka panalo ni pia.
        ngayon ko lang nababalitaan yung walkout kasi nung crowning talunan na mga tao so hindi nako nag focus sa background. when you watch live kasi syempre may mga blocking, may mga attendants sa stage directing the girls where to go so we didn’t know if it was part of their blocking na nawala sila.

    • KAILANGAN TALAGANG IFLOOD NG LAILANG TO ANG THREAD? ANG HABA HABA NG LITANYA NA PAULIT ULIT NG MABANGIT DITO AT MASABI NA DATI. AT ITONG IGOK NA GEORGE NA DI NA MAKAMOVE ON SA KUNG BKIT NAG INDIPENDENT SI CAT. PERSONAL DESICION NYA YON BUGOK!

      • Angela, hayaan mo na si George kasi may pagka special child yang batang yan. Alam mo na.

      • Gurl wag isnabin si madama laila. papets ang boylet nya. at mukhang mas expensive sya kesa sayo

    • Hi Lai,
      Napansin ko yung mga talunan eh hindi nagpunta sa mga winners tapos ung lowest 25 eh wala sa stage? Ganyan ba dati yung format?

      Wala lang para lang empty yung stage after.

      I have a feeling the the last 7 girls were hugging each other special Sandra kasi nakakatrauma siguro yung feeling na hindi mo nasagot ung tanong.

    • Hi Laila – great to hear from you again ! Where have you been all this time ?
      I miss all your “juicy” beauty pageant tidbits. Hope to hear from you more often 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Hi Leila de Lima. Yup, I’m back. Namahinga lang dahil lagi akong pagoda. Bugbog sarado lagi sa romansa brutal ni fafa Facundo

    • Feeling naman tong si Laila porket may tita’s of pageantry. Samantalang lahat naman ng info mo either narinig mo as chismis sa mga bakla sa Araneta or nakuha mo sa misso na puros Chismis din! Daming kinamayan? Anong feeling mo teh? Sikat ka? Jusko. Para kang si jonas… Laki ng ulo nyo. Wag feeling teh. Wag gawing parang fact ang chismis.

  10. OH MGA BAKLA, wala lang ang saya lang to know na despite what happened she still remained positive. Dahil na rin siguro mas marami yung nagreact in support of her kesa dun sa mga nega. And ayun din ang saya lang na may confirmation to thru her intention to join again

    • She should see an orthodontist to have her bite fixed. Para kasing sumusubo ng alam mo na everytime she speaks.

      • Teh, I hope di mo pa nababasa explanation niya about that. Kasi kung oo, napakabalahura mo to comment ng ganyan despite knowing the reason.

  11. Totoo parin ba yung Cat vs Aces and Queens issue? Or issue kang kunwari dahil sa Jonas vs Madam issue? Gusto ko ng clear answer sa Team ni Cat once and for all para wala ng rumors na di matigil tigil at nang matahimik narin ang sangkabaklaan. Team Aces parin or Hindi na?

    So sino yung “anonymous” angels/trainers na minention niya below? Hindi naman siguro si Ton Hilaw ang Harley Piggy kasi minention niya sila after nung “anonymous” people. Ano ba talaga? Isa lang ba itong malaking circus show ng aces and queens and tayo ang katuwaan? Nilinlang lang ba si madam sma dahil sa kagagahan ni Jonas ng ginalit niya si madam kaya ligwak ang mga aces lagi sa top crown? What do you think, dear readers?

    After months of preparation and guidance and prayers, I kept waiting for a wave of nerves to hit me but it never came. Maybe it was God's gift to me that night, or maybe I just knew I had done everything to be ready, now it was just time for me to enjoy and have fun. Just to think that Im going to be able to say Catriona Gray,,,PHILIPPINES gives me the chills all over again. 😭✨💙🇵🇭🙏 How do I begin to thank all of the beautiful souls who have been so generous and kind with their time, effort and resources? Truly, I would not have been able to realise this dream without you all. To Madam SMA and BPCI executive committee thank you for this once in a lifetime oppertunity. To Sir Gines, Ms Liliana, Ate Jems, Kuya Jun and the rest of the black boys of BBP, thank you for an amazing experience over these last few weeks and for looking after me and all of my sisters! 👯❤️ To my angels who have dedicated their passion to training me but wish to be anonymous, you have transformed my stage performance. Thank you to the moon and back for all of your time, effort and especially friendship. ❤️ To kuya @ton_lao, @harleybarleyy and @bragaisjojo for taking me under your wing. To be surrounded by amazing people like you through the craziness that has been this competition has been both reassuring and uplifting. To mamang @hairbybrentsales, @jellyeugenio @memayfrancisco, @momoisupe and @mimsqiu for making me glow throughout the competition. ✨✨✨ To @jearsond and @maktumang what an amazing experience it is to collaborate with such talented artists!!! Thank you for your amazing talent and making me feel like a queen. 👑 To my family, my love @clintbondad and my friends for always being there to support me and give me strength. Special shout out to my sister @sandralemonon who kept me sane throughout. Lastly to my #Catrionians what an amazing journey we've been on. Through the highs and lows you've never left my side. For your love, dedication and ceaseless support…I'm am forever grateful that you've chosen me as your queen. This is all for you. Let's do this. 👑✨🇵🇭💙♥️💛 Love your Miss Universe Philippines, 2018. (Ayyyy, 😭😭😭😭😭 ) #CatrionaGrayMUP2018

  12. Mga Ateeehhh, hihihi may nabasa ako sa Misso. Lol May ng comment na si Gumabao daw ay BORTA version ni Miriam Quiambao. Lol. Wala lng share ko lng. Hahahaha dami ko tawa.

    • O Bakla! Masaya ka na kasi natawa ka sa kamangmangan nila? Sino ba ang may korona? Ang babaw ng kaligayahan mo bakla. Bakla ka ng taon!

  13. Anyway the real winner for me was Nina Almoro. May merienda pa sa front row during Q&A. Tagal ng coronation night kasi, eh.

    Runner up was MJ Lastimosa. May back up charger pa for her phone during Q&A. Tagal ng coronation night kasi, eh.

    Finally got to see HD clips of the ladies. Wow they are all so stunning and the gowns just keep getting better and better. Thank you MJ for your rebel heart that got the Pinoy designers the recognition and opportunity to shine.

    Cat looked phenomenal last night. Honestly she’s been tentative the whole journey, like she couldn’t “breathe” — you could tell she was not assuming she was winning the title. However last night she just looked so at peace and assured. She’s going to need that in the lead up to MU as the EYES OF THE WORLD, OR UNIVERSE, RATHER ARE ON HER…. AGAIN!

    Congrats to Ahtisa and Jehza for proving their naysayers, me included wrong, that’s called digging deep.

    Kudos to Eva, Karen, and Michelle for performing as expected.

    Pretty sure we’ll see Bernardo back, not sure about Rushton, but both were no surprises.

    Next year, can we get Gerald Anderson to host. I’m not sure I like Richard Gutierrez’s stiff screaming all night long. At least Pia was Miss Universe, so her stiffness is forgiveable. Nicole was a saving grace #giftofgab.

    • Alam niyo, maganda yung stage compared sa Puteri na “dry” ang vibe and MU Thai na kopya-kopya sa MU. Weird lang talaga yung pag sa tv na. Siguro sa camera din yan. Walang creativity sa pagdidirek. Yun lang naman reklamo ng mga bakla. Pero sa perspective ng audience maganda naman sa live.

    • Love that the whole audience was going crazing. Just like inside the Axis the night Pia won.

      Hope it’s in Vegas again this year!!!!

      • I hope so too so I’ll be able to go support Cat in person since I live in the West Coast already.
        It’s cheaper and more convenient for me than going to the Philippines or another country. But I wouldn’t mind going to the Philippines since I really want to support Cat in person and cheer her on. I’d really love to meet her in person to show my love for her and have a pic with her. She’s a great inspiration for women of all ages.

  14. Mag veks sino yung flower boy ng mga winners? In fer ha cute nya….hihihihihi

    I also like that runners up got little tiaras too. Sana next year naan eh live telecast na ang Binibining Pilipinas, I had to check twitter for updates yesterday since it was super delayed.

  15. Si Lola Jonas ayan nagpost na sa mga alaga niya, good thing na hindi niya inangkin si Catriona dahil mas mabuti na walang camp si Cat para marami ang magtutulungan sa journey niya sa MU.

    • Read the conversation that’s under that IG post. Instead of calming people down and explaining it was Catriona’s decision, he instead fans the flames of intrigue pa. Malaki na rin ang ulo ng baklang traydor na yan, na pag natalo ang ward niya sa BbP, yung kapitbahay ang ite-train. I’m sure they’ll do everything para pabagsakin si Cat.

      sartoriahls: Catriona Gray?

      tarantindulce: Cat is no AaQ?

      editdon: I thought Cat is from Aces?

      jonasempire.ph: She said she is independent so I don’t want to claim. ✌🏼

      aahaahaahmad: @jonasempire.ph what do you mean independent?

      editdon: @jonasempire.ph wow, now pa lang wala ng utang ng loob. Goodluck to her! Kaya naman nya mag train mag isa ehh 😂

      • I saw that too. I wonder if may sama ng loob ang lola Jonas kay Cat? I hope they work something out but I have a feeling that Cat will stick with her current team (Harley, Ton Lao, etc).

        If Cat truly remains independent, which country will A&Q and KF train this year? Since A&Q won MIP then I can see KF training Indonesia again.

      • People are bashing Catriona left and right and being called ungrateful on his instagram post, and yet, Jonas is doing nothing to clarify the issue, and defend Cat’s decision.

        I think this is similar to what happened with MJ Lastimosa. MJ was labeled an ingrate by A&Q, but the real story was, MJ wanted to try a third time to join BbP, but Jonas said no, and said it’s time for you to end you pageantry dreams. So she transferred camps to KF. I had a chance to chat with someone from the KF camp at that time. Sobra daw ang panglalait at pangununsensiya ni Jonas kay MJ, calling her “ingrata” at “walang utang na loob”. Eh siya naman ang ayaw nang pasalihin si MJ! Masisisi mo ba yung tao if she wanted to pursue her dream of competing in MU? I still remember an interview circa MU 2014, where Jonas was with Ara, and he said, somewhat slyly, na he will be in Doral at the very front row watching MJ, feeling ko, in an effort to make her feel uncomfortable while performing onstage. Nyetang baklang yan, malaki na talaga ang ulo!

        Back to Cat: totoo kaya ang rumors na A&Q didn’t want her to join BbP, and wanted her to be remembered daw as a top 5 MW finisher? Again and similar to MJ: masisisi mo ba si Cat if she wanted to pursue her dreams?

      • Oh George, you’re over reading it again. Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill. It was Catriona Gay’s decision to be independent. Someone asked Jonas if that woman is under Aces & Queen, so Jonas simply said Cat was independent and He doesn’t want to claim it. Simple question gets a simple answer.

      • hindi ko alam kung ikaw ang gumagatong… simple yet precise ang sagot ni ateng Jonas…so bat sya mag eexplain? manager ba sya ni Cat?

      • Ang hirap sa mga tao, basta markado na sa mga isip nila na “kontra bida” yung isang person, magsstick na yun forever na parang wala na syang gagawing mabuti at tama or wala na sya karapatang magdamdam. What if totoo nga na pinagharap ni Madam sina Jonas at Cat, tapos totoong nanindigan si Cat na she’s independent and not in any way connected with Jonas? Be it strategic or anything, Im sure Cat has her reasons for doing so. And I will support her in whatever decision she takes. PERO, that must have really hurt Jonas’s feelings. Thus his phrasing of his comment. I understand na for some people and fans nakakatrigger yung statement nya but im giving him the benefit of the doubt na baka super hurt lang talaga sya.

        Regarding the rumor that AQ doesnt want her to join again, i dont think that’s true. I think they just want her to let the 2018 edition pass by and join in 2019 instead. Kasi di ba si Aya ang binibuild up ng AQ as flagbearer this year and this is her only year na makakasali sya age-wise

      • Totoo yung issue kay MJ… Ayaw nila Jonas na mag join for the last time si MJ kahit last chance na nya since malapit na sya lumagpas sa age criteria. Marahil dahil makakalaban ni MJ si Pia… Kaya napilitan lumipat si MJ ng camp. Tapos during the Pageant prelims… si Mama Ru pa ang nagparinig kay MJ na makapal daw ang mukha at walang utang na loob in public sa may gateway… tsk tsk 😦

  16. Ang dami kong napatunayan after watching BBP and consistently reading this blog. Ang mga mahilig magcomment puro kuro-kuro at haka-haka.

    1. Proved that SMA doesn’t care if a candidate is her inaanak, anak ng kumare o kamaganak ng past BBP queens. She has shown that BBP is full of integrity. Kaya nakakatawa lang mga nagkakalat ng mga chismis na Aya will secure a crown just because ninang nya si SMA

    2. Another chismis na si Dr Ena is SMA’s favorite. She has what it takes to win a crown pero mali ang mga pinagkakakalat dito na favorite sya ni SMA blah blah. Nakakatawa na lang.

    3. I saw in a vid in yotube (presscon ata ng movie ni Pia) where Pia made a comment na isa na lang gusto niyang makita sa BBP, ang mapalitan ng bagong crowns which it happened. Unfortunately, it is underwhelming. Those were definitely bought in some stores. Sana man lang ineffortan ng BBP ang bagong crowns bilang ilang dekada na yung mga yun. Masabi lang na bagong korona ang binigay jusko.

    4. Production number during swimsuit and EG portion are subpar. No explanations needed

    5. Best dressed for me are catriona, karen, sandra and… ces drilon.

    5. I feel sorry for sandra. But I guess she lacked preparation when t comes to answering questions she’s not familiar. Yes, she was honest. Pero ano ba naman yung sana sumagot na lang siya something in general. I was rooting for her but I guess this year is not yet her time. I hope she joins again and by that time, she’s prepared more than ever

    6. Am i the only one who noticed charmaine!? My God! She is so beautiful last night. I hope she joins again for one last time. She deserves to represent the Philippines with that beauty

    7. I was also rooting for Samantha. She’s one of those who answered well in the q&a. I hope she joins again next year

  17. I don’t think her answer was wrong last night, it’s her opinion anyway, dapat naman talagang ihiwalay ang CR ng men,women and trans para may privacy, itong ibang LGBT community nag iingay na naman, feeling might and superior,akala mo discrimination agad ang sagot ni Karen,feeling victim all the time.Nevertheless, Karen Gallman Deserved the Miss Intercon Philippines Crown.

  18. Am i the only one expecting Ahtisa Manalo to win Miss International Philippines even way before the coronation night?
    Even when Tito Norms did not include her in his predictions?
    Hahaha!

    • Check my comments on past blogs…
      I’ve been rooting for her to win BBP-International since Day 1. 🙂

    • Nope! Lahat ng tisay na pasok ang edad 25 pababa ay nominado. Ang balita ayaw nung taga Miss Universe ang galing na sa Miss World pero pinagpilitan ng mga judges. So there.

  19. #nohate #justsaying.. why is Ms Gray sport always a fake smile? #nohate #justasking..#congrats though still possible top15placement finish. #recylced#nohate #justsaying.

    • ay day tumigil kn…ilang beses mo b kelangang mapahiya jan sa mga opinyon mong puno ng inggit kay Queen Cat

    • You are doing this to get attention and because you are one of the desperate ones in this blog, I am giving it to you.

      You should have stayed silent… or at least wait for another week before you start your campaign. Just like my comment to another one like you, this post makes you a CERTIFIED TROLL. Can you even for a moment admit and feel good that the country will send a truly strong representative to MU?

  20. Iniimbitahan ko ngayon na gumawa ng malalimang analysis at thesis ang mga baklang nagmamarunong kung bakit hindi sana dapat nanalo si Catriona. Kung talagang magagaling kayo, hinahamon ko mga bakla kayo!

  21. Before anything else, congratulations to the new set of Binibini Queens of 2018. You are all deserving, albeit some of you weren’t that likely to clinch a crown at the inception of the pageant. With that, I won’t give a damn question on your placements.

    To my Queen Catriona—you rocked, girl. You did not give me a minute of disappointment since the very beginning. You simply defined “competition” in a very classy way. You silently slaaaaaayed without necessarily overdoing it. You meant business and I believe you will carry your torch once you cross the border from Miss World to Miss Universe. Last night, you let everyone notice you competing in Miss Universe already, let alone Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant. From the hair styling to make-up and pasarela, you simply took everyone’s breath away. Hence, I was confident that you would be crowned as the new MUP.

    To my other favorite, Michele Gumabao—I so said it that you are fit for BbP-Globe. I don’t see any crown on your head except this because I really felt that you are going to be the second Filipina to bring home the Miss Globe crown, which I don’t see if you won BbP-International or other equivalent titles. Good luck, girl!

    To the dark horse of the night, Ahtisa Manalo—you had not been in my top picks, but you gave the most straightforward and accurate answer last night. You also wowed us with your performance. I am now agreeing that you are best fit to be the country’s rep in Miss International.

    Now that the new Philippine reps are chosen, I hope that we put negativity to rest on our queens (even on those who did not get the crown, i.e. Aya Abesamis, Vickie Rushton, Wynona Buot) and to the BPCI top honcho, Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta. I believe that SMA has concluded her pageant fair and square. She just proved to us that she is taking care of her brand. She did not pick the winners on the basis of relativity and kinship, but on the panel’s scores. Also, salute to her for coming up with the new crowns no matter what others say again on these new crowns. We cannot simply please everybody, ‘ika nga.

    That’s all!

    • DI BA PUTA DAW YONG NANAY MO ANA WINTER? NAGMAMAGSLING K N NMAN AT DUNUNDUNUNGAN BAKLA KA LANG DIN NAMAN!

      • Ana, hindi ako yung kausap mo. Parang sounds like Angelo/4M dun sa “nanay” part.

        Pero, pero, pero, welcome back! Namiss ko yung mga analysis mo. 😊💛

      • ANA DI AKO YANG KAUSAP MO KASI AKO SI ANGELO, 4M AT KUNG SINIK SINIK PA……HA HA HA HA HA HA

      • ANA AKO LANG PANIWALAAN MO AT WAG KUNG SINO SINO DAHIL AKO ANG ORIGINAL AT AKO LANG ANG MAY KARAFATAN NA GAMITIN ANG PANGALANG ANGELO REYES DAHIL AKO LEGAL WIFE NI ANGELO REYES!

        KABIT LANG YANG MGA IMPOSTURANG YAN. AT TANDAAN NYO ANG KABIT AY MANANATILING KABIT AT KABIT LAMANG HABANG BUHAY!

  22. BTW Richard g.’s lackluster hosting was overshadowed by the intensity and lenghty deliberations last night.. MEs host James Deakin was still a tough act to follow.

  23. Integrity prevailed last night…ang mga JUDGES ang nasunod contrary sa mga haka haka na si SMA ang nasusunod sa pagpiling winners. It only shows na peformance parin on the finals night ang basehan ng pagpili ng winners. Next time wag nang gumawa gawa ng kwento at mga teorya mga veks…unless may solid proof

  24. O asan na mga bashers ni Cat? sila jeremi, gloria, etc? ang rurunong nyo kc…na kesyo overhyped si Cat at predictable. Na kesyo pangit katawan at pageant patty sumagot. Na kesyo mukhang umaarte lang. Na kesyo bet ni SMA si Gumabao at Aya kaya maliligwak si Cat.Na kesyo makakarma si Cat …..may nagkatotoo ba sa mga pinagsasabi nyo? Nilimpaso lang tlga ni Cat mga kalaban nya kagabi. Lahat ng major awards sa kanya napunta. At higit sa lahat ang dami nyang supporters sa Araneta !!! sige simulan nyo ng mapahiya !!! ano kayo ngayon ha?! bwahahahahaha

    • the same way na nasaan an mga gumawa ng kwento na nabayaran umano ng kampo ni Aya ang BBP para sya ang manalo. Na ang mga judges ay kinausap na ng organizers para panalunin si Aya. nasaan na ang mga nagsabi ng mystery of the wallet and money. Kamusta ang mga paratang nila?

      • E di pumasok si Aya sa top 8 kahit spectacular yung sagot nya.
        Kung sana pumasok sya e di sana kasama sya sa deliberations.

    • ang laki ng nagastos mula dun sa bayaran sa pag post, pag like pag gawa ng blog, pag lagay sa hotpicks and all….tas wala lang? hahaha char lungs

  25. Puyat pa yata ang mga tiga MISSOSOLOGY, wala pa silang update ng BBP winners hangang ngayun. Char!

  26. I mean Pia was right when she said that the Q&A would make determine the winners- sort of. At the end of the day, you still had to balance that with facial beauty. I’m in a country that’s 5 hours ahead so pagkagising ko, I was literally shaking when I opened the computer. At 6am, medyo trickling pa lang results (diyos me, after all this time, hindi pa rin nagbabago BPCI!) and then of course, I screamed when i saw that Catriona won MUP. That’s all that mattered to me really- and the photos my god. I do think that of all the MUP winners, sya yung tipong perfectly formed na sa coronation night. Whatever transformation she’ll undergo pa after this point is like super-mega icing on an already perfect cake.

    As to the other winners, I’m glad na hindi pilit pagkapanalo ni Jehza- baby girl pulled up a stellar performance when it mattered.

    I always likened Ahtisa Manalo to Kylie and yun nga, she did get that crown. Her composure and confidence on stage erased any doubts most fans had about her age and inexperience. Ang baba and booming kaya boses niya! kaunting weight loss lang to add a slash of cheekbones and she just might get our 7th (???) MI crown.

    But yes, Michelle should’ve been MGI, but physically, Eva is more of a fit.

    And Karen- I think nerves got to her but I think now that she’s got a crown, she’ll start believing more in herself. It’s not that she didn’t like her placement. it’s more of a disbelief that she finally got one.

    The runners-up were so-so. I still think that given Sam Bernardo’s obviously retokado face and Wynonah Buot’s retokado nose, the latter should’ve gotten a runner-up placement. But Wynonah needs to work on her styling- girl looks way older than her 23 (?) years. And that WTF answer- Toni Gonzaga??? Really???

    And Vickie R while looking as radiant as unicorn milk, is as dull as, well, milk….

    On the hosting, Pia sounds as if she’s out of breath especially when announcing the winners- all in a monotone, walang build-up! Let Nicole C do the honours solo next time

    • Michelle should have been MGI. I came to realize that she is a plain jane after I saw her last night. Matangkad lang sya.

    • Karen wanted the MU crown so it wasn’t a surprise that she looked disappointed after learning she won the Interncon crown instead. I commend her for giving it her all to win the MUP crown but Cat’s flawless performance made it impossible for others to beat her. Cat gave a Miss Universe winner level of performance.

      Karen posted this gracious statement about her feelings on her IG:

      I’m honest in saying I would have loved the universe crown however, @catriona_gray you girl have been on fire the entire competition and did not skip a beat throughout coronation. Elegant and beauty with fierce energy you have been crowned miss world and now universe for a reason. The international stage is yours and I have no doubt you will bring it home for all of us

  27. Have you seen Charmaine Elima? Dusky as ever. She is rocking that hair 🤘🏼

    Will she compete again? How about Alita?

    • Angelica Alita and Vickie should join again next year. Maglaban na ang magkambal sa uma. Hehe

  28. What thrilled me during the crowning moment was seeing how ecstatic Catriona and Jehza were. Catriona seemed relieved, if not vindicated, that she got exactly what she came for while Jehza was thrilled to finally nail a crown that could literally take her to Europe. I felt a little sad seeing how “less than happy” some of the other winners were, especially Karen, who couldn’t even fake excitement when she was proclaimed BBP-Intercontinental. I know that almost everyone aims for the MUP title but based on the Q&A, which could dash a country’s hope in the MU finals (think Maria Ehren in 2017), Karen and Eva should have had the humility to accept that their answers were clearly not at par with Buot and Catriona and those two were still standing. Michelle Gumabao has/had great personality but I have yet to see a Miss International or a Miss Supranational with an athletic frame. Nawat would like not mince words about her thighs either so Globe seems to be the appropriate title. Gratitude and acceptance of our limitations opens doors for us because we realize that there are other ways of getting in.

      • It was because she nailed her Q&A and didn’t win a crown unlike Karen who was weak in her Q&A but she still won a title.

      • She deserved better. I also don’t know why Karen got a crown after that answer.

  29. Eto talaga pinag-pray ko last January nung screening nila. Sana bigyan tayo ng girls na hindi lang brains ang meron peron super ganda talaga na sit back and relax na lang ang peg. Every year na lang, sinasabe ng mga kapitbahay and latinos na we only make it because sa “fan vote” and popularity, never nila tayo na-appreciate sa “beauty” department… so super happy lang ngayon na makita mo na they are complimenting us sa beauty ng girls naten, tapos magaling din daw sa “oratory” ang dalawa. Hindi lang sila smart, maganda pa at vice versa. Pati mga latinos na haters since 2015, nagiging believers na din. My gosh guys! They are finally rooting for us! Lol. Super happy lang. Siyempre these gurls shouldn’t and I know they wouldn’t rest on their laurels, pero eto yung year na less stress tayo… Meron pa need ng improvement on some parts, pero again, less stress tayo this year. Haha. Excited and super looking forward lang to this fabulous year. 💛❤️💛❤️

  30. Norman it seems that your website has a virus. It has something to do with the amazon promotion. You better fix this ur spreading the virus.

  31. Catriona looks like those who became Miss Tahiti n nagagandahan ako ng sobra… her presentation of herself in all segments… ON POINT.

    Athisa… what a face! ang ganda… and her voice… Very Miss Haiti.

    Andaming magaganda and matatalino this year…

  32. In the history of Binibini, this is only the third time where the recipient of Best in Evening Gown and Best in Swimsuit is one and the same person. The others are Janicel Lubina and Janina San Miguel!

    Ipagdasal ni Tandang Hulya na huwag manalo si Catriona otherwise ibabaon na sa putikan pageant niya!

    Sa mga faney, Hindi naman makakatulong sa kandidata natin Ang manira ng rep ng ibang bansa at Hindi Rin nangagahulugan na Hindi front runner eh Wala na pag-asa. It’s ok to celebrate but never undermine the capability of other reps from other countries as well! Nakakahiya ibang Pinoy sa IG ang tataas ng ere!

    • No po. I remember Gem Padilla, Dindi Gallardo and Gionna Cabrera won both Swimsuit and Evening Gown competitions din po during their times.

      • As early as last night can be considered as “history” depende kung ano ang tinutukoy. Mas relevant lang ang 8-10 years ago sa era ngayon kesa sa girls from the past na di na gaano relevant now. Iba ang criteria and time before compared sa ngayon.

      • Gloria , Yekatarina is right . Claire said ‘ in the history of binibini ‘. Hind nga nagbago n owner . Pls stop
        Making excuses. Fact is fact .period .

      • Itong si Gloria na revisionist ay masyadong nagmamarunong. Your comment is irrelevant to the topic.

  33. Can we protest against Johnny Manahan directing BBP show again? That was atrocious!!! The girls didn’t deserve those unflattering camera angles, reckless execution and unnecessary reaction cuts!! He needs to retire!!

    • Yes very poor camera angles or maybe the equipment too. We need HD and wide angle, hindi yung parang kuha ng gopro.

    • Manahan cut off half of Cat’s SS performance by trying to show her fans instead of showing her twirling action. 😦

      • True. I wanted to see the girls, not the fans! And that low angle was unflattering!

    • SIGE PASIMUNUAN MUNA TOTAL IDEA MO YAN KAW NA MAUNA. GUMAWA K NA NG PLACARD AT MAGWELGA KA SA HARAPAN NG ABS. MAGTATATAKBO KA DOON AT MAGTATATALAK HABANG HINAHANAP MO SINA CRISPIN AT BASILIO!

  34. Guy super out of topic! Pero look! Kaloka mga indogs may pa side by side talaga! Haha 😂

  35. Congratulations Meowww🤗
    Sad ako kay Sandra kc pumalpak na naman sa Q&A like what happened sa MWP stint nya hihihi 😄
    Kasalanan din ng traditional media kc wiz paki sila sa magagandang project ni DU30 at nagfofocus sila paano pabagsakin c DU30 at mga Dilawan pa ang A&Q mostly divahhhh kaya Di sila interested yung nakakatulong sa bayan done by DU30 hihihi😄
    Buti may social media promoting DU30 government but it’s not enough to fight the devils hihihi 🤗
    I’m not worried sa pakikipaglaban ni Meoww internationally kc kaya nyang manalo at malakas ang set of winners ngayong 2018. 😄
    I hope bongga ang wardrobes nila especially yung pang EG competition nila😄
    Bka mag-uwi tayo ng 3-4 crowns this year🤗
    Good luck ladies ☺

    • Duterte’s Build, Build, Build is double-edged. It’s promised outcome, just like his other programs, still has to be seen. Hopefully, the good effects of said economic program trickles down to the masses. Btw, the media talk about it. Maybe we just hadn’t paid that much attention until last night. But really, they should have given Sandra a brief info about Build, Build, Build. Ang nangyari, they were not testing her critical thinking skills but her social awareness.

      • **Its promised outcome…
        **Hopefully, the good effects of said economic program trickle down…

      • Excuse me?! Did’nt pay attention?! Could you give me a link from mainstream media where in the project was featured and explained extensively that the average Filipino would be able to understand?….

        I know I can’t… but I could easily give you links that feature about Kris Aquino and her kids as if they creating gargantuan change for our country!

      • The clue is govt program at sana generic answer na lang sagot nya like hindi cya familiar sa build3 program pero dapat lahat ng programa ng ating govt ay dapat suportahan natin dahil itoy sa ikabubuti at ikaaangat ang buhay ng bawat pilipino at sa ikabubuti na rin ng ating ekonomiya😄ganern dapat hihihi baka RU or crown meron cya😄

      • Inamin nya naman na zero knowledge siya about the mentioned government program… ibig sabihin she never cares about government plans and issues / wala siyang pakialam.

      • @closer2fame. I did the “googling” for you. Here’s one link:

        http://news.abs-cbn.com/business/01/30/18/duterte-govt-can-meet-very-aggressive-infrastructure-targets-dpwh

        Mind you, it only took me few seconds to find it along with other related articles. So there..pay attention next time. But again, I maintain, Sandra should have been given a short info about said project. I would have wanted to know more about her stand on issues and not if she’s aware of certain issues or not.

      • May kulang sa Q&A training bop, they forgot the root word govt program😄so that the candidate can give general answer😄
        I know build3x is in the news once, twice or thrice pero hindi tinututukan kc alam nilang babango c DU30 kung laging ibalita yan at anong tulong sa mga tao😄
        Mas mahalaga sa kanila yung balitang namumulot ng basura, nag- aabang ng bus, nagpipintura ni Leni at ngayon ang linlangin na naman ang publiko sa withdrawal sa ICC hihihi busy talaga ang traditional media to pull down our government kc sinisingil na ni DU30 yung utang ng abs-cbn, inquirer in billions ba yun?hihihi at c Roxas ang president nila at pinagpipilitan c BoboLeni Jusmeo na umopo para happy days are here again😄hihihi cherette

  36. The winners YES! YES! and YES!
    At least I have predicted all these girls to get crown except for Jehza. I guess she came out a surprise.

    The Crowns? Yes! Finally after 76 years napalitan din ang mga alambre este mga lumang crowns pla 🙂

    The Hosts? Hmmm Richard was good hasa m asya sa hosting kahit nung nsa kabila p sya, but Pia? ambagal nya mag salita para syang ng hohost ng children’s party. Yung mga dlibs nya awkward at ung mga side comments nys during Q&A halatang may pgka bias sya. May pa adlib p syang “mic drop” eh hndi nmn bagay aknggan galing sknya. Sana si Nicole nlng naging partner ni Chard.

    Production? Well most of it was good except for the bad lighting and boring stage design. Mas bonga padin ang Miss France. Pasado ala una na wala paring winners. Atlist kumita ang network sa mga ads.

    Overall it was good. And I’m happy with the result. Gaya nga ng sabi ko lagi kahit sino manalo all out support padin. Good luck ladies!!!
    and world peace 🙂

      • Well pwede narin kesa sa dati na an laki kala mo nangangain ng ulo char! 🙂

      • Para sa akin ok na ang design, except the MUP crown, halos walang pinagkaiba sa other crowns. Dapat special design and color and MUP crown.

  37. Colombian ambassador among the judges … hmmm…. spying on our team … I just want to proclaim the beauty of Edjelyn Gamboa,… dusky , leggy , sexy , especially the eyes … I hope she joins again, I hope she can vie for MUP 2019 next year …

    • SMA is Colombian to begin with and she is the Charge d’ Affaires of the Honorary Consulate of Colombia to the Philippines in Manila.

  38. Catriona Elisa Gray,
    Twenty four,
    PHILIPPINES!!!

    How many times did I comment for this introduction?
    I know we will hear this on the Miss Universe 2018 pageant.
    Hi Sylvia, I am glad natandaan mo tong comment ko.
    Thanks Sir Norman!

  39. Catriona’s long gown presentation was perfection! OMG! Just the right amount of everything!!!

  40. Mga ateh, napansin niyo ba yung gown ni Eva? Sa paningin ko yan yung kumalat dati sa IG na inspired design na gown based sa crown. Pansinin niyo, yung design parang mikimoto crown, iniba lng ng kulay. hihihi

  41. Satisfied ako sa placements except kay Samantha. I really like her. Maybe not meant for her this time. haaay.

  42. Now that she won, I submit and let’s support Miss Magnayon-Gray. I hope that she will reach the Top 16 of the Miss U pageant.

  43. Cat’s gown was patterned to that of Adriana’s of Colombia. But it was carried well. We knew it’s Mak Tumang who designed. And her styling is on point, especially the ear piece.

    Michelle’s was patterned to that of Miriam’s gown in MU’99. Who was the designer?

    Daming magagandang gowns last night, sana due recognition and acknowledgement will be given to the designers.

  44. Pinanood ko ulit yung performance ni Cat, goosebumps all over. Hands down 🙌🏼

    Mga konting puna:

    1. Magagaling yung hosts. May scenes lang na sa ibang camera sila nakatingin habang nagbabasa. Ang sincere ni Pia sa Q&A. Gusto ko yung short comments and sweet gestures niya.
    Cordoves is flawless as always. I really admire her.

    2. Pangit ng prod, sorry. Kumuha sana sila ng mas lively at legit performer sa SS. Tapos sa EG, mas maganda kung OPM song na pang harana ang kinanta.

    3. Nung intro palang, parang may halo na akong nakita kay Ahtisa. Ang galing niyang rumampa. Yung postura niya, yung ngiti, at pagtitig sa kamera… karapat dapat na mag-uwi ng korona. Kahit tumigil siya saglit sa Q&A, simple and direct, at pasok na pasok ang sagot niya. 👍🏻

    4. Ramdam ko rin ang tuwa ni Jehza. Sana maglaan siya ng mas maraming oras na magbasa (grammar books at newspapers). Para mahasa pa lalo sa substance and grammar departments at magkaroon ng cohesion sumagot.

    5. Panghuli, nakukulangan pa rin talaga ako kay Karen. Maganda, fluent magsalita, pero ung substance at conviction nasaan? Haha!

    6. P.S. I am expecting more sa gown ni Cat. Pero unique ung ear piece at ganung hair styling sa kanya. Sana mas pasabog ang gown sa Miss U na.

    The crown placements were both strategically and fairly distributed.

    Despite the minor flaws, kudos to BB. Pilipinas 2018 👏🏼🎉

    • When I found out that Johnny Manahan will direct the show again this year, I was like, “not agaaain.” But oh well, what can you do. Lol.

      It’s a great thing though that the candidates this year are so strong, they’re enough reasons already to save the show.

      P.S. That sun and stars earrings of Catriona are gorgeous.

    • I really find Cat very regal and perfect dun sa gown niya ng manalong MWP. 😍😍😍

      • Super agree CatrionaFan and Paco. 🙂 Cat will always be Cat, and she is beautiful in whatever dress she wears. We couldn’t be happier that the well-coveted MUP Crown just landed fittingly on her head. We can all sleep in peace because we know, she will make the Universe proud. ❤️

        It is fun exchanging comments with you. Until 2018 MU 🙂

  45. We will support you all the way, Queen Catriona! ❤️❤️❤️

    The same thing goes to her sister queens. I’m going to say it again. We have a formidable lineup.

    • I have been reading and agreeing with all your comments. Ganito sana lahat, nakaka good vibes lang ❤️

    • Hello, M!

      Thank you so much.

      Well, don’t you think it’s only fair that, as pageant fans, we should promote positivity amongst ourselves since we are supporting women who promotes peace and progress? 😉

  46. Cat presentation was superb, she is a ready for Miss Universe.
    Can Sandra and Aya join next year?

    • they should join but I feel like they are both suited for the lesser crowns … Rushton and Bernardo should also join again definitely , I can see Bernardo for MUP (MAYBE?) and Rushton for International (easily)

    • Sandra is only 23yo but Aya is already 26 yo. I think Aya did well considering she only started training in January and this was also her first beauty pageant. Aya’s Sto. Tomas beauty contest in college shouldn’t count.

  47. Sir Norman, sa tingin niyo, dapat bang bumalik si Catriona sa puder ng Aces? Sa kin lang, kailangan
    niya ng mga taong marunong sa ways ng MU, baka kasi ma-Maria Ehren lang siya kung wala siyang proper guidance.

  48. The Q&A for Cat was totally a piece of cake!
    She nailed and slayed that round as expected….
    I wish the other girls still fought enough to give her some good competition.

    I love that she is wearing on her ear the sun rays(Provinces who fought for our independence) and the 3 stars (Luzon, Visayas & Mindanao), the symbols of our sovereign nation…. In those tiny details, she still continues to represent and unite our nation even after the most memorable national costume presentation.. Whoever thought about that is a genius!

    I love that she understands the responsibilities of a true beauty queen and the huge platform she is given to actually create change. She could do more than encourage to unite our people. She could do more than inspire to fight crime & corruption. She could actually help erase poverty and create progress for our nation.

    CATRIONA GRAY IS MY MISS UNIVERSE!

  49. Sir Norman –
    Sometime this year, your banner will read something like this:
    Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray – Miss World 2016 top 5
    To
    Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray – Miss Universe 2018
    👏👍👏💫💍👑👘👑

  50. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Justice has been served! You cannot put good women down!! No matter how hard you try to forestall the course of destiny, it will always find its way to fulfill its promises. Simply because her name is written among the stars to shine bright in the universe sky!! Catriona now holds the distinction of the one and only, so far, to represent the Philippines in Miss World and Miss Universe in different years!! A unique record and recognition which will stand the test of time and a new benchmark for others to emulate, replicate or duplicate. This accomplishment is a cogent reason for all Filipinos to unite and support her journey as she face a new horizon in the future. MABUHAY!!!

  51. Sweet victory and very historical achievement for Cat! Now enjoy and start prepping for Miss Universe 🤗🤗🤗

  52. Hawaii or Macau as host for MU 2018 will be ok … I can already see Pia being a coach mother to Catriona and Gloria & Margie as coach grandmothers …

  53. The Chinese contingent watched the show last night. Guess where Miss Universe 2018 will take place?

  54. Catriona was never a hyped beauty.. Aya was.. And so was Michelle Gumabao.. There was no three cornered fight for the MUP contrary to the press releases. Read: PR work.

    • Oonga, nasan na yung fake news ng Ahas and Kweens na three cornered fight? Well, nobody believed them naman kahit todo na sila sa pang loloko at bullshit sa mga pageant fans diyan sa mga articles and IG postings. Lol. Mafae “luffy tuffy” san ka na? Mapait ba ang sumabog na bile sa tiyan mo, ateng? 2 months na nagpaka-shady at balahura yung babaeng yon, sarap ng feeling na sa venue pa lang yung sigawan ng fans nilamon siya ng buo, tapos announcement ng winners for sure nahimatay yon. 2 months din nagtiis na hindi siya patulan pero napaka sweet lang ng victory after all the craziness. Happy lang 😊

      • Pls don’t give Aya’s folks the armaments they can use in the future against u. Wait until Cat wins MU 2018…before u say anything.
        Besides, humility goes a long way. Don’t kick someone who is down bleeding . Have some conscience e
        In my opinion , Cat Aya and Michelle are among the top . Michelle should have gotten a better and Aha should have been in the winning circle .

      • Sylvia, why don’t you zip it with your know-it-all, self-righteous nonsense? I’m not going to explain why I said what I said about the abusabos chaka girls, but the people here know exactly why. Ikaw? Who are you? At bakit 2 days before yhe coronation bigla ka sumulpot. Do us a favor and bang your head sa wall. You need a major reality check. I’m asking you to stop making epal comments to us. You are irrelevant here. Bye bye! K? K. 😘

      • @MickyMouse

        **Rather off-topic but:

        Aya isn’t really that bad of a candidate. In my opinion, she does have potential to become a formidable representative, perhaps someone who can give us a crown if she competed. The problem is, she’s already 26 years old – not ‘overage’ to join pageants per se, but (she’s) too old to be a “first-timer”. I wish she either trained longer or even joined earlier. To be honest, I felt like her team, especially her relatives who were former title-holders got a bit too arrogant on this part. Yung bang feeling nila their ‘pedigree’ was enough to compensate for Aya’s lack of experience (and glaringly sub par comm skills that would take years-worth of training). Medyo delusional na sinabak nila si Aya so late in the game (by pageant standards) tapos ang gusto nila na makuha niya eh Miss Universe. Worse, they are banking on this bid based on what her mom and cousin achieved in the past. Wala namang masama to dream big, pero kasi yung vibe nung team ni Aya may sense of entitlement pa eh. Other than her toned body and dancing skills (na hanggang pang opening prod lang naman ang silbi), wala talagang enough depth si ateng to be a competitive representative. Especially in a pageant as big and as intense as Miss Universe. If only she had Maxine’s face…even then, I really don’t think she’d stand a chance lalo na’t masyadong malakas yung batch na sinalihan niya.

        Kung medyo bata lang siya sana I’d want her to train some more and maybe join again in 2-3 years. Kaso it’s too late for her to aim for the most relevant crowns. Si Maxine nga na pakak ang face for Miss U hindi na-polish overnight ang dapat ayusin sa kanya.
