  1. Catriona’s best look so far (for me) was when she was in a low ponytail and minimal makeup. Mas lutang siya, I know this is just a comment from a lowly reader but can somebody tell her to stick to minimal makeup… the nudes..instead of those bright pink shades that she normally would wear… Yung una niyang makeup looks matapang for me and someone that pretty do not need much.

    Mexico is so Lupita Jones but fades from time to time. Si Peru ang angat, Puerto Rico and Colombia so oozing with confidence. Denmark is Oxana + Rolene in one. Russia is pretty and so is Switzerland, Aus and Albania. Ecuador too, I like her choice of makeup but she looks boring (personality-wise).

    • For me, parang nawalan na ng spark si Ecuador pagdating niya sa Thailand. Parang nilamon na siya ng ibang latina at mukha siyang pagod lagi. Day 4 pa naman. Baka naninibago lang sa mga ganap.

      • I am most excited about Albania! Siya kaya ang pinakamatangkad sa mga kandidata at 182 cm? Na-excite ako kasi for sure ang energy niya maganda pang opening! Malandi ang itsura pero, juice ko, ang facial value, angat!

      • Yes Albania has a lot of sass. These Eastern Europeans usually are the best in facial value haha but they lack sass and finally we have somebody like Albania. I also remember Miss Ukraine during MJ’s time, she made it to the top 5 because of she was sassy. If Miss Russia would exert a bit of effort she will make it too haha

        Peru stands out in almost every photo I see.. Miss USA just comes as she is kulang sa styling but this girl will make it too.

      • Also may I add Miss Georgia. Her face caught me. Sultry and Angelina-Jolie ang vibe. I am imagining her a bit brunette because the black hair made her look so villain-y haha

  2. This morning while driving in the village, I chanced upon a days’ old cat crossing the street. I stopped and I thought if I’d proceed baka lumakad s’ya ng palapit sa gulong ng car ko, mapisa s’ya. I got out of my car and took the cat and said “oh, Catriona!” Then I put him in a safe place on the pavement. Andun pala ang mother n’ya at mga siblings.

    I thought it was a good sign that Cat will win Miss Universe. Na-deja vu lang ako kase that scenario already happened to me when Cat was joining BbP.

    Kakat’wa. Hihihi!

  3. Have you seen yung MU live video kung saan natra try ng mga pa sample cream or cosmetics yung mga candidates, si south africa talaga super aggressive talaga gagawa talaga ng paraan para umeksena at gumitna sa camera while si cat ay very regal and classy pa rin without exerting effort mapansin.

    • korek! napansin ko rin yan…parang uhaw sa atensyaon si South Africa…umeeksena sa lahat

      • Akala ko talaga siya yung medyo “classy” sa mga kandidata. Iniisip ko nga bakit inis na inis ang ibang tao na si Cat daw ay “overexposed” pero hindi naman siya ang nag-o-overexpose sa sarili niya? Meanwhile… may uhaw talaga sa spotlight na siya na mismo ang umaarangkada.

  4. Madaming bitter na baklush dito. Akala mo magaganda. I kesyo gusto nila si Australia blah blah blha. Eh dun kayo sa vlog ng mga yun mag announce nang inyong paghanga. Iisa pa iting baklush na ito na i dont like her hair nakuh kung makasalita eh bald na sya ingutera pa.😂 candidly speaking si Catriona lang yung Rep ng Pilipinas na hindi ka matatakot na hundi makuha sa top kasi pinaghanfaan talaga. Yung last na mga rep natin onay guven well trained but milya yung agwat ni Catriona sa Kanila. So dapat suportahan nalang wag nang bitter .

      • Alam mo Ikaw tigilan mo ang A&Q. Baka Ikaw pa at yan pa ang ikasira ni muning. Kasama sa tinitingnan ng MU ang ugali. Kung talagang genuine ang dyos dyosan mo, tigilan mong magsalita against A&Q. Be greatful for what she has become or what she is now. Do not take it against A&Q. WAG INGRATA!!!!!!!

        Cat is cat. Pero PANIRA KA eh. Sobra ka na!!!!!

    • Hindi mali mag appreciate ng ibang candidates at hindi lahat ng praises mapupunta kay Cat lang. Nakakaloka ka. Magreklamo ka kung masmaraming tao ang nagpupuna kay Cat kahit kita naman ang effort niya.

      Masama ugali mo. Hanga kay Cat pero kay Katarina na struggling you put down. Judging by that alone, you have no right to tell others what to do!

      • MU loves drama pa Naman. Wag pakampante at Di Lang pinoy ang best fans in the world. Kita nyo naman at pumapasok na Ang Indo at Thailand. Kaya wag nyo sirain Ang momentum ng pinas sa MU by glorifying Cat habang sinisiraan nyo Ang kakaibang kandidata. Kung Kaya nga nilang ligwakin Ang venezuela, Ang pinas pa Kaya.

      • Sa mga diehard fans Kasi ni Cat sya Lang Ang perfect. Para sa kanila Yung ibang kandidata pangit na at yung pinaglalabanan na Lang ay Yung 2nd to 5th place na Lang. Tandaan gustong gusto Ng MU ang mga Underdogs ( Kenya, Haiti, Jamaica, etc.)

  5. Wala pa naman na official announcement ang IMG/MUO regarding sa format ng program pero etong si South Africa nagsasabi na na after top 5 ay top 2 na lang at hindi na top 3. Naku pinangungunahan na niya agad ang MUO this might affect her chances ayaw ng MUO ng tsismosa. Hahaha. Her being too madaldal will take against her at advanage para kay Cat.

  6. Sir Norman,wala ka bang magagawa sa isang commenter dyan?Masyadong bastos at parang walang pinag-aralan?Sana magawan mo ng paraan para ma filter yung nag cocomment dito.

    • Wag mo na lang masyado pansinin.
      Ang request sana kay tito Norms ay lagyan ng “Hide Comment from View” option sa comments section. Para kapag nakita mo na comments nya, pwede mo tangalin sa view mo.

      Pwede din kasi na kilala ni tito Norms ang pasaway na commenter kaya di nasama nung tanggalan.

    • Siguro ito yung pioneer na commenter dito dati.yung parang may sakit sa pag iisip.yung nagsisimula sa “b” yung ginagamit na pangalan.

    • Chief Justice: This is the reason why I wrote this in my previous comment.
      “Just a piece of advice to all supporters: IGNORE the bashers as if they never exist. Don’t reply nor give any comment to them. Likewise, please refrain from hitting any buttons on their comments. Again, ignore them as if they’re just like a fart that will fade in the air in seconds!”

  7. si Miss Australia ang tumalo kay Fatriona
    sa mga contests sa Australia

    at dahil talunan sa Australia sa Pinas nagpunta si Fatty
    kasi mapagmahal sa banyaga ang Pinoys

    this year tatalunin na naman sya ni Miss Australia

  8. cat is the only card of the Philippines this year. Katarina is lost in trannslation now😂wala nang bala ang babae. Los valdes na .

  9. Australia is very cute and youthful. . Her face is amazingly beautiful.
    I think she is Cat”s strongest competifion
    Oh my my

    • She really looks good in still photos but not so much in motion. I don’t know in person though. Make up doesn’t really work well on her which is the bane of young-ish looking Asians. Chinese on her father’s side and Irish on her mother’s, she looks gorgeous bare-faced with her freckles. If she brings the same game from her national pageant and more, then she can give Cat a run for her money. Natural, approachable, and accessible seems to be the current brand of Miss Universe.

      Miss Universe is mostly unpredictable when they hold the pageant outside the United States. Iris’ win was a surprise compared to the heavy favorite Demi. Riyo and Oxana were also not favorites for the crown. Cat is recognizable in Thailand because of her advertisements. I’m sure Thai pageant fans are aware of this and hopefully, this works in her favor. The hype can no longer be undone. It’s good that Tamaryn is hogging social media which is saving Cat from over exposure. ❤️

  10. Im starting to like indonesia. Shes pretty. Inthe last photo she looks like the artista from channel 2. Whats her name ? ____ salvador?

  11. Cat is nailing it. Our MUPs are never the most social media-heavy at MU (because let’s face it, they are focused) but I think she is giving us just the right amount of exposure.

    Three outfit changes? Filipino inspired pa rin??

    More about her advocacies, including HIV testing on World AIDS Day?

    MUO wants someone who can engage, and that’s what she says her social media is about and she’s showing us that. If anything, she could do more BTS to share their journeys with us – but I get she cannot get too distracted.

    Spain is a doll to follow – you can tell she is enjoying her experience, the other contestants, and staff as well. Inside peek talaga with Angela’s stories. Reminds me of Colombia and Venezuela last year, and we all know the organization loved them both back in the end.

    Keep going Cat! I can’t wait to see some of her cocktail dresses and gowns to come!

  12. Wow , Australia maybe the silent killer
    The loud noise abt Cat may prevent her from concentrating on what’s impt.
    If she wins, I will consider her the best MU candidate ever for being able to handle the heavy pressure.
    If she loses, I can only blame those responsible for the brouhaha
    I hope Cat stays away from social media
    And after closing her hotel room door , I hope she takes a deep breath prays and meditates so she can have inmer peace … after all the yelling outside .

    Those superlatives are just sickening . There is nothing wrong with being optimistic .But my God , give some space for other possibilities . She maybe The perfect candidate but The organization maybe looking for something else .

    • I think by trying to do her best to get finished with stuff earlier is a sign that she has focus. Gaya nga ng sabi niya kahapon, may ‘free day’ siya.

      To be fair naman sa kanya, yung posts niya ay halos limited to OOTD lang at advocacy. ‘Di ko nga inakala na ang magiging atat na atat sa social media ay si Green. Masyadong busy sa IG stories at IG live.

      • Tama, the first candidate ever to spread fake news. Siguradong napagsabihan sya ng mga awtoridad kaya binawi nya yung IG story nya.

  13. Her best look so far. Relaxed and easy. I hope she is getting enough rest. Also the Dusit Thani is such a historic hotel. Sad it’s being torn down

  14. Nice! Pwede talagang ilaban kahat saan. Baka overcharge siya ng Meralco, she’s generating so much electricity 😉

  15. Maraming nagtatanong kung bakit wala si Catriona sa mga press presentation na katulad ng nakikita nila group with miss USA, South Africa Thailand Vietnam. Ang pagkakasabi sa akin yung Thai organizers daw ay Medyo mailap kay Catriona. Don’t know if this is true oh Hakka haka Lang ng Mga insiders sa Thailand. Let’s wait and see kung totoonga. Ilang Araw pa ang bakbakan. Sana yung momentum ni Muning eh hanging sa huli.

  16. Tumambay kau sa instagram mas maraming ganap dun. Minsan dun lang kumukuha si tito norms ng storya. Char! Love u tito norms 🙂

    • Anu naman part of the brain yan…
      Aling cranial nerve ang babagalan para maging totoo ang mensahe?

      Hoy kapwa, mag post ka naman nung May Bahid ng katotohanan.

      • She tends to speak so fast na parang hindi sincere ang pagsasalita. Lost in translation lang kasi tinagalog para maitago. Yunh greetings parang hindi na rin maintindihan dahil sa bilis ng pagsasalita at parang scripted na. Kaya suggestion ko mejo bagalan magsalita para mag mukhanh sincere. Mataas lang siguro ang energy ni Catriona…

  17. maganda yang ginagawa ni Catriona…pinopromote nya yung local garments. She really does care about our local fashion

  18. Yesss Cat, werk it. One day at a time lang ang peg.

    Btw guys. Napansin niyo ba na ang daming kuda ni Tamaryn these past few days? Bawas-bawasan niya nalang din ang social media kasi namimisunderstand siya at baka mapagsabihan na din ng org.

    • Yup, pansin ko din. Ingat ingat nalang din siya sa pinagsasabi niya sa socmed lalo na at naka live siya.

    • May pagka-adelantada si South Africa. Kung may award sa pamimigay ng fake news sya ang mananalo. Honestly, i do not see her winning the title. Malamang sa malamang sya ang maging Ruth Ocumarez or El Tocuyo awardee.

  19. wow…she looks very classy ! other candidates are only beautiful but Cat has a lot of class and charm…
