  1. I think Cat would be given the hardest Question among the TOP 5 to favor USA.

  2. A lot of commenters on different platforms are saying she would be asked something related to medicinal Marijuana on the Pageant night. I disagree because I’m sure some random reporter would ask her about it imidiately in the next few weeks to come. Miss Universe may ask her something related to her advocacies… or something else more timely and relevant by then.

  3. Anu daw? Too much rehearsed and preparation?

    Ei ung mga too much retoke nga nananalo,

  4. pasabog din before ang MW video nya
    wala naman magagawa ang video sa mga ganito

    wala namam ganito si France before at South Africa
    maski si Pia pero nanalo naman

    Thailand is MU18

    • for a basher like you, nakakatuwa na at least aminado ka na pasabog talaga mga ginagawa nya esp these vids

      at saka pinagkaiba kasi, yung sa MW required yun kasi lahat ng contestants nila kailangan may intro vid. Super ganda lang talaga nung pagkagawa nung kanya noon kaya pasabog levels. And hindi naman porke hindi required eh bawal na gawin, gusto nya manggulat ng ganyan eh bat ba

  5. The only thing that she needs to work on is her body and her thick legs, everything else is already great.

    • Amen to that. The rest of her is perfect and battle ready 😉 The physique requires time but we know she’ll be 150% ready by December. This is what I appreciate about Cat kasi di siya madamot dahil she takes us along this journey to the final stage. In fact, I am more excited than nervous sa REAL transformation nya. What we see in her PR now are nowhere near sa totoong look that she will serve in the competition kaya talagang dapat kabahan ang ibang candidates kasi her real armaments are sealed and hidden in the vault. Sasabog ng rainbow glitters and unicorns paglapag na paglapag nya sa Thailand! Pray ko lang na walang baklang hamog na mukhang kuto na magpapalaganap ng images sa kanyang final look gaya ng nangyari kay Rachel Peters.

  6. Wow this video reminds me of her Miss World introduction. Carefully thought out and beautifully executed. I still hope that her team do not “overwhelm” in terms of pasavogue. While it is ok to show sense of “fight” and “hunger” to win, they need to make sure to maintain the “clamor” factor. I agree with some of the commenters here in a sense that people might eventually lose interest if you keep on giving everyone something everyday. From now on, I think they should go with minimal update since that will keep the buzz on her even stronger.

    • i love how you made your point come across to people. I wish i couldve written that idea as well as you did. Pag ako kasi nagsasabi nyan noon or kahit si Nope hate kami agad ng mga tao tapos basher na daw kami agad. We really and honestly just mean well for Cat as well.

  7. I recall MU Thailand CHALITA who was well loved by the Filipinos two years ago.

  8. I have a strong feeling sa question and answer ni Cat will be about war on drugs ni duterte. Kung kayo si Cat, ano sasagot niyo? Ako siguro diplomatic ang peg. You wanna agree with what the whole world is saying, which is hindi tama ang process, pero you don’t wanna piss the president of your country and his followers. Siguro sagot diyan dapat agreeing sa both sides but leaning towards sa views ng foreign people. Like, you can see the intention to create a “drug-free” country, pero a proper process should be done. Mostly americans and liberal ang mga judges so dapat yung answer is nag-aagree sa views nila. Take note ha, Americans dislike dutertes ways.

    • Don’t use the word “humane” kasi controversial yan na word ni duterte. If sensitive ang tanong, diplomatic and positive dapat ang response.

      Naisip ko lang naman kasi usually sa top 5 ang question is current hot topic sa country ng girl.

    • Sa tingin ko, hindi ‘yan ang tanong. ‘Yung 2015 edition ni Pia lang controversial and Q&A topics. 2016 onwards, puro *lighter* questions na lang like social media, social movement, etc.

      But regarding diyan sa war on drugs question, feeling ko magiging diplomatic nga ang sagot ni Cat if ever based sa sagot niya sa Marawi question nung BBP. Siguro ka-level nung sagot ni Clenchi sa MGI.

      However, boring ang diplomatic, hindi pasabog, lalo na sa panahon ngayon na ang ingay sa social media ng pro-active views against sa Philippine government. Ang pasabog na answer is if mag-take siya ng side against war on drugs then mag-cite siya ng research/evidence. But hindi naman ako nag-e-expect.

    • mumsh maning mani kay Cat to. Cat has this innate way of taking a stand without coming across as offensive. So feel ko kahit anti Pduts maging sagot nya sure ako na hindi sya magtutunog offensive. Pwera na lang syempre kung sobrang sensitive talaga ng mga kadedees na maooffend pa sila sa pagsasalita ni Cat jusko ewan ko na lang

    • Feel ko din. Mga top matters sa bawat bansa ang tanong sa top 5. Medyo alanganin talaga pagka ganyan ang tanong. But i hope question like this. If you are the president of your country. How you will start your war on drugs? Mas ok yan kesa hingin yung opinion nya sa war on drugs ni d30. Iwas bash to d max if ever anti d30 style sya. Pero i doubt it na ganyan ang tanong. They will make the question harder to proceed in top 3. Pero tiwala naman ako kaya ni catriona yan. She will do well until Q&A til to win MU2018.

  9. I have a strong feeling sa question and answer ni Cat will be about war on drugs ni duterte. Kung kayo si Cat, ano sasagot niyo? Ako siguro diplomatic ang peg.

  10. Me nabasa ako na lines ng prayer na sana maincorporate ni Cat sa q n a nya if ever appropriate sa question. Yung lines na to serve and not to be served,and represent the least, the lost and the last.

  11. My top 20 predictions:

    Philippines
    USA
    Spain
    Vietnam
    Thailand

    South Africa
    Venezuela
    Mexico
    Brazil
    Australia

    Ecuador
    France
    Georgia?
    Peru?
    Panama?

    China?
    Belgium?
    El Salvador?
    Puerto Rico?
    Jamaica?
    Colombia?

  12. I think cat learned her lesson from miss world on how to win the heart of the organization first.

  13. Repost ko lang to comment ni Anon below:

    “Nowadays, a candidate simply does not compete to be a Ms. Universe, she has to campaign for it as well which is what Catriona is doing.
    She is displaying focus and the drive to win the title, something her laidback predecessor did not have.
    MU Org. appreciates candidates that have the fire and hunger to fight for the crown, Catriona has it.
    Best of luck to her.“

    Pak na pak! Check niyo mga social medi ng candidates this year, lahat sila may pa campaign campaign na din after maglabas ng pasavogue ni muning.

  14. “Anything too much won’t be good.”
    I wholeheartedly agree. While I love that they are making sure no stones are left unturned, blending in also necessary. If MUO can see it as prepared and hungry for the crown they can also take it as arrogance and presumptuous. Even more so her fellow candidates.

    I remember during the days of Pia’s preparations, whenever a new make-up look was released, everyone was going gaga about it everytime and some of those looks went on to become iconic today. Cat on the other hand is “Oh it’s Cat her look is different today so pretty”. This is what I’m talking about, seeing her new looks all the time became the norm. Bumwelo muna bago magpasavogue or else the novelty comes off. It’s also not an issue of “knowing when to peak” because I believe that only applies to the pre-pageant course. This is my cup of tea.

    • Nope , stop over analyzing
      The judges ‘ lives do not revolve around beauty pageants ….not like yours and mine.
      Cat is beautiful with great comm skills.
      If Cat achieves a decent body and gives a remarkable Q and A performance, she will do well… regardless of the overhyping
      Knowing when to peak? SA and Thailand were talked abt from the time they won their nationals last yr …and they would have been the last 2 standing if not for Thailand’s Answer.

      • The judges lives do not revolve around the pageant true but MUO does. Like I said too much updates isn’t my cup of tea. It’s just my own preference, not others’ or MUO’s. A big part of why I got tired of MU 2017 was because the competition really just revolved around the two. I find it boring if everything else becomes too obvious. Also you missed the point about the “knowing when to peak” part as I said that I believe that only applies to the pre-pageant course.

    • Walang pa-peak peak, bakla!! Yung stratehiya ng isa ay di magwowork sa iba. Wag mo pakialaman ang plano ng team ni muning. May pa-peak peak kapang nalalaman, tapos sasabihin gumagaya na naman sa past winner. Pweh! No offense kay Pia ah, love ko siya, pero wanna know why sobrang dami niyang haters after manalo? Kasi nobody saw her winning and she never really “peaked.” Her win was unexpected kasi si Colombia ang alam nila mananalo from day one. Of course tayong mga pinoy we saw the improvement pero sa mata ng mga foreigner di nila nakita yon. They base sa what you show sa social media and sa mga pasavogues. Point is… if ikaw ang front runner, gaya ni Demi 2017 and Paulina 2014, keep mo lang momentum, update lang sa mga monthly pasavogue and let the people talk about you. Ano gusto mo? Magtago si muning sa cave tapos bigla bumulaga sa finals? That is not how you win! Campaign ka and show the powers that be how hungry and determined you are. At the end of the day, the girl who “wants” it the most ang winner. Always yan!

      Also, I agree 100% sa sinabe ni Fabian. SA and Thailand last year, almost every week may update ang every page sakanila sa social media. Oh ayon, nanalo and yung isa mukhang alternate pa sa crown kung di pumalya sa q n a.

        This is true. Sa totoo lang, very few truly saw Pia would be Miss Universe. She had an amazing q&a answer, pero when you think of it, the whole “confidently beautiful with a heart” speech hardly sounded spontaneous in the truest sense of the word, alam mong galing din sa “notebooks” ni Pia – and that is not bad at all tbh. She was only ever able to justify her win by being a great spokesperson for the org during her reign – and after.

        Hindi rin ako naniniwala sa know when to peak, kasi as you’ve said hindi naman yan talaga ang main driving force in Pia’s success – hunger was, sa totoo lang. And that is something Catriona has – Maxine & Rach were wonderful reps pero ultimately, they’re women who have their passions somewhere else. (ex: the beach life or whatever you call it, as opposed to IMG’s rather cutthroat branding business). Easily intimidated lang yung nagsasabing OA si Cat, pero yung recently released video shows that she knows how to sell something well and is not afraid to go an extra mile to promote something she’s passionate about. In all honesty, yan ang kailangan ng org.

        Agree din ako na SA, TH last year & Paulina hardly paused days after their win. Why would a strong girl honestly try to adjust just because most of the pack are having a hard time catching up? Colombia kept sending MU-driven girls even after Paulina’s win, girls who don’t feel the need to cater to their competitors, girls who are just focused on doing well, if not getting the crown again. Sila nga halos laging predicted to win, wala namang nagrereklamo? Kasi wala namang masama talaga kung gigil ka.

      • Yun nga ang sabi ko dava the knowing when to peak part only applies to the pre-pageant hindi sa preparations for MU! Also most of Pia’s haters were Colombians who couldn’t get over the fact that Ariadna was shamed during the coronation. Had it gone smoothly with Pia’s crowning of course may initial na ngawa sila but it would have eventually subsided like any other winner’s situation. That viral crowning of Pia gave her Colombian haters(and a few Latinos) pero it wouldn’t have become memorable had it not happened so it’s a blessing in disguise!

      • Mang Kanor, ON POINT ang comment mo! May Power Hug ka mula sa akin!!!! 😀 😀 😀

    • p.s. there’s a huge difference between “arrogance” and “confidence”
      I see Cat as a confident and determined woman. If you try to watch her interviews and check mo social media niya, arrogance is the last word that you would associate sakaniya. She is CONFIDENT but never arrogant.

      • CatrionaFan, she is both Confident and Humble. Cat’s confidence shines from within.

      • Mang Kanor I know that Cat isn’t arrogant. I’ve seen all her interviews but the difference between confidence and arrogance isn’t as big as you think. It’s very easy to mistake the one thing for another. Just take Paulina’s example, there were rumors na arrogant and rude daw siya during the competition although that all faded when she won.

        Also sinong nagpapasok sa newbie batang to? Hihihihi

  15. Well well well😄
    I wish Meoww will will will have the best content, delivery and honest answers in all interviews and Q&A compared to other MU contestant’s😄🤗😋
    Meowww will will will win win win hihihi Divahhh haus speaker😄
    Congratulations Thailand kc alam kung mas patriotic and Vongacious ang Final show ng MU2018😄

  16. No one can be too prepared for anything.. For me, Cat is just right on, wlang labis, walang kulang.. Couldn’t ask for more.

  17. Nowadays, a candidate simply does not compete to be a Ms. Universe, she has to campaign for it as well which is what Catriona is doing.
    She is displaying focus and the drive to win the title, something her laidback predecessor did not have.
    MU Org. appreciates candidates that have the fire and hunger to fight for the crown, Catriona has it.
    Best of luck to her.

  18. I honestly think that Cat is leading the pack as of now…I just hope she sustains that and at the Finals night she will be in her element. And I do agree, Thai and Filipino fans should not fight anymore….love love love

  19. I honestly don’t think na “too much” ang preparation ni Cat. Sa perspective ng few Thai fans, siguro parang ay “she’s spoiling us too much” parang ganon. Pero try putting yourself sa position ng MUO, you would think na “wow, this girl really means business. I like her hunger and determination” ganon. Kung napanood niyo latest interview ni madam paula, may sinabe siya na isa sa qualities na they’re looking for is someone na who would go the extra mile when nobody is looking. Siguro challenge na lang ni Cat is paano niya ma-convince ang important people para siya ang piliin na winner. She is really the girl to beat right now talaga. Keep the momentum lang. Yung mindset niya dapat ngayon is parang ganito 📶, steady climb to the top lang.

  20. Lakas maka-GANDA KA TEH?!? ng mga pasavogue ni Cat 😻💖 LOVEEEE ETTT!!!

  21. Being too prepared is a sign that she is very hungry for the crown and very serious just to get not only the crown but the duties and responsibilities of being A Miss Universe. On being rehearsed. Im sure they are already fixing it.

    • Di naman issue yan, Jed. Kung nababasa mo lang mga comments ng foreigner about sa public speaking skills niya, di mo masasabi yan. Pinoys na talangka lang ang pumupuna diyan. Mga neighbors and Latinos, wish daw nila na kagaya ni Cat magsalita ang mag-express mga girls nila.

      I hope wag masiyado i-dial down ang level ng vocabulary niya. Hindi naman Miss International sasalihan niyan na need ng “basic” english words. Wish ko kay Cat na maging part ng iconic queens sa question and answer round. After ng iconic answer ni Dayana Mendoza, wala pang queen na napa-wow talaga ako ang yung feeling na super quotable ang peg ng answer. I want her to be poetic but genuine and sincere. 😊

      • Thanks laila. Well! Your not alone for that wish. Almost lahat naman tayo. Pero mas bongga kung halos sa lahat eh mapapa wow talaga from natcos, EG, SS and especially Q&A. Feel ko talagang may pasabog sila come MU2018. Natcos pa lang talagang plan nila na may surprise so what more pa sa MU stage.

      • I have a feeling na matatanong ulit “what is the essence of a woman?”… This question has suddenly become very different now than when it was in 1994 (and difficult to answer).

  22. I always thought Thais are beautiful and wise people. They are also a good genetic combination with Filipinos… I have met a few Half Filipino- Half Thai aquaintances and they all look gorgeous.

    I love Thailand… from their exotic food to their culture that values tolerance. Tolerance and cultural sensitivity is something that everyone in world should learn and practice. I’d love to marry a Thai person someday.

    Love from the Philippines! 😀
