    • Jack Ammo, akala mo naman may maniniwala sa mga gawa gawa mong tsismis. Mahiya ka nga. Sana makarma ka mabuntis ka sa ilong at ang lumabas eh yang shoesess mo na may heels. Letsugas kang dishwasher ka.

      • Naku shoes ko gaga ka ba aj pano naman mabuntis ang ilong. Di ka ba nag iisip? Mali ka po di po ako dishwasher, tagaligpit lang po ako ng pinagkainan ng mga mayayaman tapos nililinis ko po ang mga lamesa so ayun naulinigan ko po yung chismis nila tungkol sa buntis issue. Kasalanan ko po ba yun

  2. Naku naku shoes ko po mga vaquela de swangetas dito nag uusap usap na naman ng mga walang kwentang haka haka at lutuan daw dahil sa china. naku shoeses ko talaga na may heels parang narinig ko na rin yan nung panahon ni Laura Lehman na niluto na raw na china ang mananalo eh di nga nakapasok ang china kahit sa semis. Ewan ewan ko sa mga shoeses ko kung bakit ganyan mag isip ang mga pilipinong bakla. Mga vaquelas na nga di pa matuwid ang utak at ang dudumi ng mga isip.
    Parang nasa parlor lang sila na ng chichismisan. Shoes ko po patawarin.

    Naku naku makabalik na nga sa aking palasyo na nasa tuktuk ng bundok overlooking the serene Andaman Sea. Tse kayong lahat. Shoeses ko po talaga!

    • Magtrabaho ka dyan! Pagsilbihan mo yang mga customer nyo dyan sa resto na yan. Puro gawa2 at kalat ka ng malisyosang tsismis.

  3. Will you all relax your tits!! Miss Universe has a good track record when it comes to the Winners. They will most likely allow China to be in the top 15, top 10 but not the top 5. MUO never let’s the host of the country dictate who will eventually win the crown. The only way Miss China will be able to win, is if she deserves it.

    The Pageant hasn’t even begun production and you’re all claiming that Cat won’t do well because if politics. Grow a pair will you all! Geez.

    • Trying to sound “american” pero fail. Trying hard masyado with the slangs and idioms. Lol!

      • If there is anyone who can make typos, it is me. You know why? Because English is my first language. Unlike you, keyboard warrior wannabe.

        You have the audacity to correct my grammar yet you use taglish. Please, go and learn how to speak and write in fluent English before you even correct me.

        gloriamoranwurztbach states that I am, “trying hard masyado with slang” yet you are speaking taglish! Let me correct you idiot. That sentence alone has multiple SYNTAX ERRORS. HAHAHA You are fail!

        Get to my level you degenerate.

      • It is impossible for any human being to grow a pair of shoes because of they fact that they are objects which are external to any part of the human reproductive system.

        I can however buy an expensive pair. Lol

        Again, get to my level.

  4. Cat has a very pleasant personality . I think she will do well where ever the pageant will be held. I just hope it’s in Vegas … para masaya

    • Vegas should be the home base of MU because it’s very accessible to everyone and u will never run out of things to do .

      • Cheap talaga ng taste mo ever!!! Hihihihihi Vegas? Teh hindi showgirls ang brand ng MU. You have proven again that you have zero taste. So tama ang sinasabe ng mga veks sayo dito. Typical baklita na ang brainz ay nasa 80s copong copong era pageant patty days pa. Bet mo nga yung mga pagoda bun bun hair and sweetheart neckline gown, davah??? Walang evolution na nangyari sa utak mo. Late 80s copong copong ka parin……. Cheap mo sylvia. Eeewwww…… hihihihihi cherett kang vekla ka.

  5. Omg not in China. Wala nang pag asa ito cooking show na naman…..hayssssssssssssss. Lokohan na ito. Money talks…dyosko China pa daming pera……oh aling vicky

  6. Wag kayo kabahan me game plan na si Cat…

    Remember Harley Barley Tan and Ton Lao are
    Fil-Chinese and Chinese Speakers and knowledgeable
    sa China kasi nagstay na din si Harley dun so alam
    nila paano atakehin audience dun plus the fact na maguguide
    nila si Catriona kasi Mandarin speakers sila..

    also.. MUO is not MWO.. magkaiba sila principles..
    talk about the Englishman and the American..

    tsaka venue lang yan sa New York pa din magsstay ang MIsss
    Universe so syempre pipili sila ng girl na makakawork nila ng one
    year.. un ung magmamatter

  7. My personal preference is Hawaii. 2018 will be a mirror image of 1998 twenty years ago… when MU was held in Hawaii and the MUSA was held in Shreveport, Louisiana

    Macau, China is my alternate choice. I have not heard of this place, the Peace International center. It looks good on the outside but it is near Beijing/Shanghai… air pollution is through the roof !

  8. kakalungkot kapag totoo ito
    wag na umasa
    top 5 si cat

    lutuan na naman

    top 3 usually from each continent now
    China na ang winner from Asia

    then other from Europe or Africa or Americas or Oceania

    but ofcourse Cat and the Philippines will never give up!!!

  9. Don’t we need a visa to go to China ?
    Some Pinoys have to drive 8-12h just to get to an embassy. It will surely reduce the number of fans to see Cat.
    I hope MU stays in Vegas.

  10. Since we’re in the topic of China as venue for this year’s Miss Universe, which foreign celebrities do you think MUO should consider to be in the panel? Kobe Bryant, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie? What about Chinese actors? Jackie Chan, Zhang Ziyi, Gong Li? Or Chinese Athletes like Yao Ming?

  11. Kaya pala nag top 15 si China sa Miss U 2017 kahit hindi deserving. Plano na pala lahat.

  12. Regardless of who will host the MU2018, Catriona is all set to conquer China and the Universe.
    Positivity, humilty, hard work and determination = victory 🙂 🙂 🙂

  13. Maybe just me, but the only people who smiled at me were the tour guides, cashiers, and hotel staff. Not very friendly to outsiders, imho. And I’m part Chinese.

    • In fairness, Americans are actually some of the friendliest, outgoing people out there (I believe you are Californian and us even moreso). People in Europe are cold too. Cultural differences na lang.

      Anyway, mainland Chinese are some of the worst tourists out there so they cannot judge. Have you ever seen a busload of them arrive at a main tourist site? Aye naku, hurry up and take your pictures and get out of there! Maiinis ka lang.

      Russian tourists are just as crass and loud.

      Money can’t buy class I guess, but it can buy you a Miss World title or two and an opportunity for your sons to perform his pop songs for the Universe LOL.

  14. If China’s two MW titles were won on neutral soil I would not be pessimistic on this issue.

  15. Goodness.
    Worst case scenario is if the MU contest will be indeed in China and the Chinese rep wins.

    China’s only wins of Big 3 crowns (MU MW MI) was two MW titles. Coincidentally, both victories took place in China.

    I don’t feel good about it. Sorry.

  17. Nawala yung post ko😂
    Anyway, China or Vegas ay malaki talaga chance ni Meowww manalo 🤗
    Yun lang jihiji 🤗

  18. WAG muna tayo PABIDA ang saya mga sizterette ha at mag kuda kuda kiyeme sa page ng MU. magsaliksik muna tayo maigi kung paano natin pakikisamahan ang china. dapat i refocus natin ang ating lakas to build up cat sakanilang bansa rather than pangunahan natin ang MUO at kanilang kasosyo sa tsina.. kandidata natin mahihirapan kunsakali kapag ganyan tayo.

    • Boba! MW is not MU. MUO will not betray the trust of their biggest fanbase which is the Philippines. Miss Universe is the most popular pageant for a reason… they know how to take care of their followers.

    • Buhay pa pala tong kinginang panot na to. Hindi pa ba to naempacho sa dami ng sinabi niya na kinain din niya. Itong panot nato yung nagsabi na matatalo si Cat sa Binibini diba. Wow ang credible niya oh lol.

      • Break nya teh. Pagbigyan mo na. Pangarap nya maging SIKAT, sa kahit anong paraan, kahit na yung tipong niyuyurakan na sya.

  19. Keri na, at least MU 2018 will be fresh and new hindi Vegas nanaman or PH nanaman plus China is a huge market so the whole thing is understandable. Basta I just want new things.

  20. I dunno, McClain is just wearing jeans to a deal signing? I don’t think so.

    Malabo pa yan. China has never hosted a MU. No doubt they can meet MUO’s financial demands, but production and logistics-wise MUO is very demanding. Mama Paula, unlike Mama Julia, also has to answer to IMG and NBC. Not sure China will be willing to relinquish control over to three separate American entities. Hinda parang Miss British Cooking Show where China can dictate all production elements, including the winner.

    Nevertheless, Guangzho is very close to Hong Kong, Macau, and of course the Philippines! For sure there are going to be Pinoys who will come out in full force to support Cat. Tickets from California are about $700 so it’s still possible to visit but what the hell is there to do in Guangzhou???

    Anyway, Cat is a chameleon and I have no doubt she can appeal to the Chinese sensibilities and play up her porcelain-side with styling and projection.

    Still on a personal level, Vegas for me pa rin!

    • Daming hanash. Wala naman laman at tama sa pinagkukuda mo. Gusto mo lang pagyabang na sa is-teyts ka kunwari nakatira. Pasimpleng bragging kuno pati ticket choochoo kelangan detalyado ang dada? Ampake namen. Sabihin mo di mo na lang afford ticket papunta China. Natry mo na ba sumakay sa first class? Baka ni economy hindi pa. Sabit ka lang sa barkong baklita ka! Pweh! Hihihihihi

    • Soooo pretentious lang ng “personal level” choochoo mo. Pweh! Hihihihihi

    • Are you talking about Guangzhou or Hangzhou? The venue (according to the article above) is the Hangzhou Peace International Convention and Exhibition Center.

      The average Hangzhou to Guangzhou flight time is 2 hours and 10 minutes. The distance from Hangzhou to Guangzhou is 1,038 kilometers

      • LOL. Aye naku. That’s what happens when you check the blog when you wake up. 6am lang sa San Francisco kasi eh… Oh well, Hanzghou is closer to Shanghai so more for a visitor to see and do – 45 mins lang via hi-speed rail. Better than Guangzhou.

      • @gloria…

        Perhaps you should change your name to maggiebeahenry. Bagay sa inyong lahat ang ampalaya national costume.

        Some of us are celebrating our fantastic chance to root on our 4th Miss Universe in person! Six times over two decades I cheered on our reps and they just clapped clapped clapped or were bridesmaids. How many of our queens have you cheered on in person? That’s what I thought.

        Sorry if I am being pretentious or don’t know how to Google or whatever. I’m just so excited for Cat. She really is born to be Miss Universe and I think I can speak for many Pinoy fans who would rather see her clinch that crown in VEGAS baby surrounded by her fans from all over the UNIVERSE.

  21. I am not worried for Catriona even a bit if it will be held in China. Mas worried ako kung thesis beauty ang MUP natin ngayon at kelangan pang suportahan ng kung anu-anong ni-research na justification at analysis para sabihing dapat syang mag-place sa MU.

    • Honestly hindi ko naabutan yung supposed deleted posts about MWP, so wala akong clue kung anong kaguluhan meron. Pero can we please respect na lang the blogger and his decisions on what to publish? I mean come on, kakatapos lang ng BBP and soon MEP naman around May so I think it’s natural lang naman na MU at ME lang ang laman ng blog na to these days. MWP will have it’s own spotlight naman on Q3 this year since dun sya regularly slated.

      • Yes, the pageant itself is slated Q3 of the year.

        But it not all about Miss World. In fact, Cynthia Thomalla will be competing in a weeks/days.

      • point taken. But in defense, hindi rin naman masyado pinag uusapan sa Misso or other more well-known blogs/forums ang Miss Eco. In fact isang IG post pa lang nakikita ko about it. So hindi selectively na dito sa blog lang na ito “hindi pinag uusapan” ang anything about MWP. Walang gag order, maybe ganun lang talaga ka-uninteresting yung ME copycat (si Cynthia lang honestly ang dahilan kung bat napag uusapan yun)

  22. Una sa lahat. D ko lam kung matatawa ako o maiinis sa FB pages na nagpopost ng about hosting of china ng MU. May mga confirmed and uncomfirmed post. Pero nanawagan sila na wag na munang mag react o maging OA at d pa sure. Eh engot naman pala sila eh kung hinde sana sila nag post regarding that eh hinde kukulo dugo ng mga beki regarding that hosting of china ng MU. Alam nman nila na mainit dugo ng mostly pinoy sa china. So they cant blame the fans na kung makareact eh. Sisihin nila sarili nila. Sabi nga ni Pia. Think before you click/post diba Pia? Lol.
    Anyway! In terms of stage production hinding hinde titipirin ng china ang MU. Nasa tamang venue sila if ever. About sa result, I know MU is very different in MW. But everything is possible. After all business parin ang MU. Pero kalma pa din dapat mga beks kaysa maging negative vibes. Basta if sakaling sa china gwin ang MU para sure wag na wag isusuot ni cat ang the sun and 3 stars ear cuff either prelim or finals. Pero if im not mistaken may stars din sa flag ng china so baka magustuhan din nila. And catriona should read news papers and be aware sa mga matters between PH and China dahil for sure may politics questions na naman sa MU.

    • Teh, don’t worry about it. China is a global leader in business and finance. Do you think they really care about who wins a beauty pageant? It is not like the Philippines or Venezuela where this is their country’s claim to fame.

      Anyway, Cat just has to learn a few key Chinese phrases, work on extending her eyeliner to create slanted eyes, and belt out an amazing tune in Chinese and she is good to go!

  23. @Andrew

    I know that seeking to unite is already inate for Cat… It is the local fans who I am more worried about. We still have months to greatly improve and maintain a good relationship with the Chinese and Americans along with our Asian neighbors and the people of other pageant powerhouse countries. What Cat could do is to herd and tame her fans to become as diplomatic as her in building a friendly relationships with people from other nations regardless if they are fans or critics of our rep.

    Ang maipapayo ko nalang kay Pusa… e halungkatin na nya ang lahat ng lahi ng kanyang mga ninuno at alamin kung may dugo syang kalahi ng katutubo ng lugar kung saan gaganapin ang patimpalak… Kailangan na yun maipakalat sa mga manonood habang maaga upang dagdag pangalakal sa ating pambatô. Nakikita ko na ang kanyang magiging balakid ay mga taong papainan ang mga kababayan natin upang sila ay mag-amok at magmukhang masama sa mata ng sang sinukob. Bilang paghanda sa ating mga sarili, kailangan na natin magimbak ng tinapay at hindi bato na ipangpupukol sa ating mga kalaban. Ito ang nakikita kong paraan upang malinis na maitawid si Pusa sa kanyang napipintong pagkapanalo.

    Hopefully, MUorg would see that another win for the Philippines would greatly add to the more peacefull diplomatic and economic ties between the Philippines, China and the US. The huge economic growth rate of the Philippines and Australia are also too valuable to be ignored. It may even be high-lighted due to various foreign investments from all over the world that are pouring in thus Cat making it to the TOP 5 should already be set on stone.

    I think Cat’s situation would still be a bit complicated when it comes to fully cementing here way into winning the title. Although it is a given that she is very charming and lovable, both the Chinese and American audience might still be on the fence in favoring our delegate since on top of the fact that our country just won less than 3 years ago, the political turmoil in the South China Sea is still ongoing while our president’s war on drugs are continiously being demonized by the Western Media. Our diplomatic relations with the 2 countries- US & China in connection to their government and their people by the time of the pageant would be the biggest factor. As of now, the current administration has good relations with the Chinese government and 50/50 with the US govt hence the rest would be upto the stars if they would align in favor of Catriona upto the finish-line.

  24. Okay naman siguro sila ang mag-host. I hope wag lang like Miss World na puro intermission number ng mga chinese singers ang naganap. Ka-antok yon! Wala naman problem i-showcase ang talent ng kababayan nila, wag lang gawin about sakanila ang show. Yun kasi ang lagi nangyayari pag sila ang host.

  25. I have mixed feelings about this. And why is Richelle part of this discussion? May business dealings ba ang mga Singson sa China?

    • Richelle was opposed to Maxine winning MU. Hindi niya bet and mga pinay queens eh pinay maman siya. Typical crab mentality. Tapos business-business lang siya sa MU last 2017.

    • Baka sila Singson ang broker. The Chinese group watched the Bb. Pilipinas show at the Araneta last March 18.

      • I have a feeling it’s because of the “Asian connection” given that Richelle can speak on behalf of the MUO about the benefits for their business after they sponsored MU in the Philippines.

        In other news, how adorable is that pic of Shawn looking at the Chinese baby? Is he straight or gay?

      • Either way, you don’t have a chance……. cherett kang vekla ka,,,, hihihihihi

      • I’m pertaining to those who will give/has given their two cents regarding Catriona’s chances of winning now that China’s the venue. And your point is actually one of my thoughts. Julia Morley will not be present. China has hosted Miss International before, but didn’t bag the title up until to the time of this writing. And also, Miss Universe will not have a long-term national economic effect to the Chinese economy. I don’t think the Chinese government or even the local government of Hangzhou will interfere with the results. I’m just finding the theories, let’s say, amusing.

  26. Para sa mga intsik wala silang pakialam sa Pilipinas. Kahit mala diyosa pa ang ganda ng kandidata nyo wa sila care, So goodluck na lang sa mga candidates.

  27. If the Miss Russia organization will allow, I would like to request that Popova Palina rep at MU 2018 in China! I want to see if her facility with Mandarin will do her favors. And in all honesty, I think the Tsinos will like the Gray Cat. Remember, C2F, “…Chinese fingers…”?

  28. Wait lang! Kasama yung anak ni Chavit si Richelle? Ano meron? So wag na pala tayo kabahan sa China… 😄

    May mga question lang ako… true ba na close si Jonas sa MUO? Friends ba siya kay Richelle Singson? If yes ang answer, yun ang ang magdidictate sa kapalaran ni Cat and Philippines, whether positive or negative ang outcome. We all know naman what happened kay Rachel last year… pero I’m not convinced na may powers si Jonas sa MUO/IMG mismo. Maybe close siya kay Shawn Mclain, pero kay Paula Shugart and the big bosses ng IMG and MUO? I don’t think so.

    What do you guys think?

    • BAKIT ANONG MERON BA SI JONAS PARA MAGING KACLOSE NYA AMG MUO? POWERFUL BA SI JONAS? MARAMI BA SYANG PERA? MAJOR SPONSOR BA YANG BAKLANG YAN? ANONG DAHILAN PARA MAGING KACLOSE NYA ANG MGA MUO? KUNG ANG MAY ARI NGA MISMO NG CATALINA SWIMSWEAR, YAMMAMAY AT FARUK SYSTEM NA MGA MAJOR SPONSOR HINDI NGA MAKAEKSENA, SI JONAS PA KAYA NA PAGKARAMI RAMING UTANG? GAMITIN NYO NGA UTAK NYO BAGO MAGPRESS RELEASE NG KUNG ANIK ANIK MGA BUGOK KAYO!

      • 4M, calm down. 😄 Nagtatanong nga eh… pero you have a point ha! 👍🏻

      • FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, AGREE AKO SA SHOKENG BINABAENG HUKLUBAN NA ITO!

      • BAKLITANG KATURAY NA IBINULWAK NG NANAY GALING SA PWET HINDI KO KAILANGAN ANG PAG AGREE MO. UMUWI KA NA LANG SA BAHAY NYO AT TUMAE AT KAININ MO SABAY UTOT AT HABUL HABULIN MO!

      • Mama J was very instrumental in bringing MU in the Philippines. He and Kat de Castro worked with the government and private sector to secure the funding etc so yes in a way Jonas established good connections with the organization.

      • AT ANONG PROOF MO MRS BONDAT? TSISMOSANG BAKLA KA RIN NAMAN ANO? NAKA ESTABLISHED NG GOOD CONNECTION ANG BAKLANG JONAS NA YAN. ATUPAGIN NGA MUNA NYA MGA KAUTANGAN NYA BAGO MANGARAP! NI DI NGA SYA MAKAPAGCLOSE KAY STELLA O KAY PECHAY VENERACION MAN LANG SA MUO PA? BAKA SA JANITOR NG MUO PWEDI PA!

  29. Nainis ata ang MUO sa Philippines kasi gusto nila mag-host uli noong 2017, pero the meeting did not end well yata. Pati yung mga iba na pinoys na nagyayabang at pinamumukha sa MUO na “best ever” edition ang sa Philippines, nairita siguro sila.

    Bad terms pa ba ang China and Philippines? Kamusta na yung scarborough shoal? Alam naman naten na lagi tayo talo everytime sa China ang laban. Hayyyy, kitty cat, I wanna be optimistic pero may bad vibes ako sa mga chinese na yan. I hope whatever man yang galit ng China, hindi tayo i-hocus pocus.

    Olympics and kahit ano pang contest (pati nga yung singing contest na kasama si KZ Tandingan), lagi hindi fair lumaban ang China everytime na sila ang host country. Eto yung tinatawag nila na walang delikadeza kasi they always make sure winner ang representatives nila… ang kung may galit sila sa particular country or person (like Miss World Canada 2016), they retaliate by sabotaging talaga!

    • TALAGA INIS ANG MUO SA PINAS? SINONG TSISMOSANG GAYA MO ANG MAY SABI? SAAN MO NA NAMAN NAHAGILAP YANG HAKA HAKA NA YAN? ANONG PROOF MONG BAKLA KANG WALANG BAIT SA SARILI?

      • SIGE LANG ARANGKADA PA! ANG BINABAENG SHOKENG HUKLUBAN NA ITO MAY NALALAMAN PANG BAIT SA SARILI, EH IKAW NGA MISMO WALA NYAN! ECHUSERA KANG HUKLUBAN KA!
