  1. based on opinions here parang ang stand out ay ang mga familiar na sa marami. i have doubts sa candidates ngayon pero based on img choices ok na yung pwede na ang mukha basta magaling magsalita (at may adbokasiya) i hope the best that can represent wins

  2. Kung Beauty Lang ISABELLA GALERIA Talaga but I’m not sure IMG just wants beauty . Alaiza is stunning and very sweet personality. Amelicxzhfk is a good speaker , could be the one . Gumabao pwede na but neeed to lose 50 pounds before MU

    • @venus Yan din napansin ko pinakamaganda mukha ni Galeria. Parehas din tayo ng choices

      • Baka pinaka maaskad along with that short haired FA. Josko bakit ba nakapasok sa screening ang mga yan?! Dahil Aces & Queens? Jiosmio. Kungdi naman dahil kay Heart ni sa Binibining ToriTori hindi makakaabante si Galeria. pwede ba

  3. Gumabao na kamukha ni Ciara Sotto
    i think she will also join Mariel dun sa Kardashian modelling

    bagay sila duon kasi

    • I beg to disagree . For me , she’s among the top . She has a very queenly aura which only a few candidates possess

  4. Kahit sa IG ang daming nakapansin kay Skelly Florida of Biliran!

    Talaga naman kasing Barbie doll painted black! Mga tipong gustong-gusto ni Lola Osmel!

    Iba rin kasi yung X-factor niya compared kila Chelsea Manalo & Nikita McElroy!

    Anyway, after this presentation, lalong kong na-confirm na talagang lalaban to the finish line si Michelle Gumabao! Kung ang distribution ng criteria is 50% QnA – 25% SS – 25% EG, there is no way na matatalo si Michelle!

    I am sure yan din ang distribution ng percentage ng MU kaya ang daming na-ligwak na magaganda nung 2019 at may mga naka-Top 10 na hindi inaasahan!

    As for advocacy, she herself is already the embodiment of empowered woman! Alam na ng lahat na Volleyball Player siya before she join beucon and let’s not forget that Ariadna Gutierrez is also a Volleyball Player when she compete with Pia Wurtzbach.

    En vez na sabihin niya yung importance of sports, mas kailangan niyang i-reiterate yung “importance of TEAMWORK in sports” para mas maging relatable yung advocacy niya.

      • At 5’6″, she actually looks taller on photos because she has a lean and proportionate frame same as the likes of Jheza Huelar who is also 5’6″. When she took a photo with Ysabella, Michele, and Christelle, she literally stood out.

      • Jehza @ 5’6 is way more proportioned w/ a tiny waist that tapers to her toned hips and beautiful long legs…

        meanwhile..

        Skelly has a long neck.

    • @ ClaiRe IbbeTson Speaking of sports as an advocacy, alala ko nu’ng 2018 napag-usapan natin dito ‘yan. @ Fabian Reyes was saying that MANY female athletes are in pageantry and not just MU and that being one does not confer any real advantage because at the end of the day it’s still all about BEAUTY and that;s why he is still emphasizing that she has to lose weight. As many are saying even now.

      As for Skelly Florida, as per @ Closer2Fame’s description, she is like Jehza Huelar – not so tall BUT LOOKS TALL because limbs are long, aka desirable proportions. She certainly is future building material for Filipinas pageantry, someone who while not winning now will be watched closely in the near future.

      Back to that sports–as-pageant-advocacy, any news if Bint Sireethorn Leearamwat will do any work for MIO as far as the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games are concerned? Not that she’s sporty or anything.

      • I didn’t say Skelly has long legs.. I meant “I wish she has long toned beautiful legs”… but waist up, she does look absolutely gorgeous…. I love her very symetrical facial features.. her blank expression is so symetrical that she looks like a giant bratz doll manequin… If she can talk/act, she could actually be an effective TV personality.

  5. oh eh after magpakagod dito
    pag may nanalo na?
    mahahanda ba nila para sa MU?
    MU is just a 1 week event in a hotel.

    kahit padala nyo pa sila Pia at Catriona ulit
    hindi na mananalo
    bakit? kasi South Africa ang mananalo ulit

    hihihi

  6. Jawskuh 🍟🍗🍔🍹🍽️
    Ang daming magaganda at MUP lang Ang paglalabanan😭
    Sa kavilang parlor Naman ay vilang lamang Ang may Face hihihi to the advantage of Miss Abalos to win a crown dahil Kung hindi ay magpapaadmit na ako sa loob Ng Mandaluyong hihihi😊😆
    Cherette lungs 🌠

  7. I love Paula Ortega…. She’s the most charming among the front-runners and is an excelent polyglot. I love that she can switch to English, Spanish, Tagalog and Bicolano with ease. I have a feeling that she would do very well at Reina Hispano-Americana. And if she nails that, she could try Binibini and hopefully win another crown.

    Bella Ysmael looks beautiful… I love her legs… She looks well-proportioned for her height and she is oozing with class…. She is indeed a true testament of her mixed racial ancestry… Who would think that aside from her European, Asian and Latino mix there are drops of African-American and Ashkenazi Jewish in her blood?! Well, I hope she also inherited the multi-talents, political savy and entrepreneurial spirit of her forefathers…

    Pauline Amelinkx is cute but far from modelesque… she does speak well… But I really do wonder which international pageant is best for her very commercial beauty?….

    The winner would surely be one of the ff.:
    Ysmael, Malinao, Gumabao..

      • @flor

        Hahaha.. feeling ko branch lang din yan ng Aces.. masabi lang na may ibang camp si Aliza & Bella..

    • Ang kulit mo Closer..sinabi nang Alaiza..hindi Aliza. Bordering on offensive ka na kay girl.

      • Wow, edi maoffend sya..
        buti nga naniniwala pa akong mananalo sya e…
        If she is indeed offended by this minor mistake then she doesn’t desserve to win. 🙂

  8. I wonder how generous is the package offered to Shamcey to accept the ND role for MUP. I remember her saying before that after her reign she would focus on her career as an architect. I can imagine how big her pay check is not to mention the perks that comes with the role.

    Of all the MUP’s (after Venus) she’s the one who is not the type that would make modeling, hosting or pageanty her source of bread and butter. I like her actually, sensible, matalino and maganda. May pgka maldita at supladita lang talaga minsan. Yung tipong, hey I’m not just a beauty queen, I’m an architect who happens to graduate from UP and top the board.

    • That’s why I like her the least . She is very much of a maldita , unlike Venus or Ara
      Patch who has a similar profile as her is more humble and friendly

      • Yes I agree, may pgka maldita nga. But we have to give it to her, in a way, she’s one of those who gave BQ’s a new image. Yung hinde lang puro ganda. Matalino at independent. Pero yun nga, maldita talaga, up to now.

      • Closer, read again, walang sinasabi na maldita sya dahil sa goals. Mahina talaga ulo mo. Maldita sya dahil maldita sya. Matalino sya dahil matalino sya. Never ko kino-nect yung pagiging maldita nya sa pagiging goal oriented nya. Boba!

      • @Baby Nica

        Ahhh ganun ba… You call someone Maldita cause she’s obviously nicer than you? Sana makahanap ka na ng true love mo para hindi ka na ganyan ka bitter.. May god bless you. 🙂

      • Closer, there you go again with your non sense analogy. Again, for the second time, Maldita sya coz thats what she is. Walang kinalaman ang kung ano man.
        Aral ka nga ng mabuti, magka utak ka. Naaapakan ko ang IQ mo.
        isa pa, sabat ka ng sabat sa mga usapan na di ka naman involved at hinde ka iniinvolve. Feelingerang boba.
        Lungkot ng buhay mo teh. Get a life!

      • @Baby Nica

        Why so hateful? Are you talking about Shamcey and me or yourself? I hope mapatawad mo na kung sino man umapi sayo. Tsk tsk and hopefully you would find peace. 🙂

      • Closer, excuse me? You’re the one hateful. And oh by the way, diverting the topic just because na emphasize ang kabobohan mo. Shocks! ikaw naman kasi teh sabat ka ng sabat. Have some brains muna ha pra di ka ng ddivert ng topic pag lumulutang kabobahan mo. Aral ka gurl, please.

      • Closer – Next time kasi teh mgbasa ka mabuti ha. Hinde yung putak ka ng putak mali naman ang comprehension mo. Tapos pg pag ganyan na lumilitaw kabobahan mo eh pa victim effect ka at mega divert ng issue. Shocks!!

        Actually hinde kita inaano, ikaw itong sunod ng sunod sa mga post ko, tapos pag na ccheckmate ka, pa victim ka na at divert ng issue. Dun ka na lang sumunod sa mga post ng ibang readers dito na nauuto mo. Wag ako!

      • Ang effort mo naman magreply Baby Nica
        doble doble… So you are indeed talkin about yourself.. hehe I suggest PM mo si Kylie Versoza… baka matulungan ka ng org nya. 😀

      • Excuse me ikaw ang nakikisawsaw sa post ko Tanga!! Masyado ka obsessed sakin.

        Sana bago mo dinamay si Kylie dito eh alamin mo muna tamang spelling ng pangalan nya. Haha masyado mo pinapa obvious kabobahan mo OMG

      • @Baby Nica

        Hahaha dont worry you are not that special… lahat nirereplyan ko hindi lang ikaw… kakaiba na talaga pinagsasabi mo… Pacheck-up ka na.. 😀

  12. dami sinasayang na oras at pera
    1 week lang naman ang events sa MU
    tas sa hotel lang nakakulong kasi winter
    prelims and natcos back to back sa masikip na venue
    Finals na agad after 1week

    ang MU winner wala naman ganap after manalo
    hindi tulad nung 80s and 90s busy talaga ang MU winner

    • The 80s & 90s were the drought years for the Philippines. And those were great years for you?

      Well, if you’re living in the past & if reminiscing is the muscle you flex the most these days & if change is scary to you & you cannot adapt, then how sad is it that you’re alive … but not really.

      • @ SQ Now that you mentioned it, come to think of it, what really, in my opinion, comes to mind in those decades was the PRIZE PACKAGE – year’ s worth of goods and services, jewelry, car, clothes, etc. I am unsure if MU was ACTUALLY any busier then as now. Para nga’ng mas marami’ng ganap ngayon and at least kahit paano may travel. Tulad na lang nu’ng C1000 endorsement. Wala pa nu’n nu’ng mga dekada’ng ‘yun. And correct me if I am wrong, SmileTrain as an MU partner is recent. 🙂

  13. Hi there fellow afficionados of beauty pageants. I was greatful about the comments of the above
    vloggers. In my case I would like to give some observations on the following beauty candidates
    that I think are rated for becoming Miss Universe Philippines 2020. In my view there is not a little
    bit of hint on discriminatory angle or point of view. It merely occured to me that these following
    ladies are good for becoming the next Miss universe Philippines. I judged them not only for their
    physical looks My preference is related to the number of the beauty, like 1. , 2. etc.

    1. Adee Hitomi Akiyama – Beauty and Brains – she is a registered nurse and a student of
    medical science. Her contribution to our health needs she feel.

    2. Honey Grace Cartasano – Beauty and femininity and brains. I found her beauty as a
    Filipina excels all the others. She is a very feminine lady with good looks and a nice
    career.

    3. Paula Madarieta Ortega — Beauty and brains. Very beautiful and brainy. A true
    Dalagan Filipina. Morena, very feminine, gracious, smart and the way she walks.

    4. Sandra Lemonon – Beauty, well poised and a little bit smart. A true Dalagang
    Filipina beauty with a morena and beautiful Filipina looks. Height and good in
    the way she walks, sexy.

    5. Sigrid Flores – Beauty, well poised, right height and body sexy. Smart a true
    Dalagang Filipina beauty with her morena skin and always smiling face.

    6. Erika Evangelista – Beauty, well poised sexy body. Still have to hear her and
    the others in the Q and A time. A true Dalagang Filipina, very feminine with
    morena looks. Look I am a full blooded Filipino – see I look at our beauties.

    7 Jan Alexis Elcano – Brain (a registered nurse) beautiful, feminine, right height,
    good poise, smart. Qualities of a true Dalagang Filipina.

    8.. Michelle Theresa Gumabao – Beautiful, right height, good poise, sexy, smart
    morena. A true Dalagang Filipina.

    Note: These are just my initial comments on the above bequties. Waiting to hear
    how they look in swimsuit and gowns. How they will respond to the Q & A
    portion.

    I want to know or probably all the millions of Filipinos around the world the
    time of voting online and how to access the site for online voting. Am living
    in Ontario, Canada. Will wait for a comment and email from you.

    Thanks.

  14. Amidst the crowd of familiar faces, Ms. Biliran is a clear standout: an unadulterated beauty with undeniable X-factor. However, her mastery with the English language was her obvious Achilles heel. She was rather engaging speaking other than English.

    As part of their “holistic” re-branding, MUP should embrace the distinct linguistic diversity of the Philippines by advocating delegates to use their respective regional language. For years, the Latinas dominated MU without showcasing their mastery of English language. MUP should do the same.

    • Brilliant suggestion. In the spirit of diversity and inclusiveness, MUP should encourage freedom of expression in whatever language one is comfortable with. For years, Philippine pageantry has discriminated against non-fluency in English, and fallaciously equated it with low intelligence. For so many times we are witness to contestants being mercilessly jeered for answering questions in halting English or wrong grammar. This should stop. MUP should set the pace in developing women who are confidently beautiful in any language, be it the language of the colonial masters or the language of the colonised Indios.

      We witnessed reps coming from the farthest reaches of the archipelago, and perhaps the remotest barangays of the country. I can’t help but feel proud at the vast reservoir of beautiful women this country has! Who knows if from this batch will emerge beauties with backstories similar to Venus Raj and Janicel Lubina.

      • I’m not sure it’s the wrong grammar
        Theaudience actually jeer at them because of the lack of sense in their answer .

      • @ Fabian Reyes Agree. Hindi mahirap ang Q&A, kung tutuusin. YOU JUST NEED TO MAKE SENSE. ‘Yun lang! Keep things simple and examples specific. They should be trained to also edit their thoughts in real-time. It’s all mindset. This kind of habit can be mastered, if one is determined to do so.

        Competitive athletes (like MG) and elite-covert warriors possess this attribute. They can quickly assess a change in conditions and execute an appropriate response in a split-second. Then with neither fanfare nor drama, they quietly leave the scene, with little left behind to betray their handiwork.

        IT’S TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW EVERYTHING. Learn to make the most of what little you have.

      • @Fabian: Lack of sense manifests itself in halting English, wrong grammar and nervousness. Non-English speakers think in the vernacular. Thought processes from English to vernacular and back to English in a severe time pressure and in front of millions of live and TV audience, all the time conscious of the need to come out with an acceptable answer, is indeed nerve wracking.

      • With unbridled use of regional languages in national beauty pageants, maybe the classic Janina San Miguel debacle would be nothing but a distant footnote on the Philippine pageantry rather than a cyclical proverbial blooper.

      • @XYZ: True. I consider the Janina San Miguel tragedy forever be a historical footnote to Philippine Pageantry when the vestiges of colonial mentality unabashedly reared its ugly head. No contestant is “bobo” (sorry @Paul!). She was just rattled with having to process in vernacular the question in English, and return a good answer back to English in split-second, conscious of the need to satisfy the millions of expectant viewers.

    • Latinas speak Spanish which targets a huge demographic… What advantage would an international title holder have if she’s only fluent with her provincial dialect which is microscopic in comparison…. the last girl who won Miss Universe who’s main language is spoken by less than 200Million people is from Japan, Ms. Riyo Mori.. BUT Japan was the highest economy that year, has one of the most powerfull passports and strongest diplomatic ties w/ the rest of the world. Therefore, if we, a 3rd wrd country wants to win an international pageant, we have to pull all the stops.

      • @C2F: True, but I observed that speaking little English in the MU pageant is considered “cute” so long as one consistently shows the confidently beautiful demeanour, and not allowing language handicap inhibit self expression. During the contest proper, there are interpreters anyway, which by the way is a convenient mechanism to buy time to process ideas into a “winning answer”. If a non-English speaker already wins, learning English takes a short time, especially if one hears and reads English everywhere 24 hours of her life. Sooner, she may even dream in English.

      • Riyo Mori may have represented Japan, but she grew up in Canada. Prior to winning Miss Universe, Riyo lived in Manhattan for quite some time while trying her luck as a Broadway/Rockettes dancer. During the ’07 MU competition, It was more than obvious that Riyo had that typical NY accent and attitude.

      • @XYZ

        Yes, she speaks English…
        Another case is Ma. Angola Leila Lopez… even though shes also fluent in English since she did study her doctorate in the UK.. She spoke in Portuguese which has 230millions speakes… which is the national language of the host country that year and coincidentaly the Bikini Capital of the world which is the target market of Yamamay, one of the major sponsors… Meanwhile Venezuela is the largest make-up consumer in the world… As for the Philippines, our largest export is our people hence fluency in English is important for us to adapt abroad… therefore, a Filipina who speaks English well best represent our people.

    • The country produced 4 English-speaking Ms. Universe’s who’s answers were eternally immortalized in pageant history so why should this year be any different? 😉

      • Why this year should be different or why English should not be the lingua franca? Simple: To give those delegates with diverse linguistic background a fair and level playing field.

      • If you remember, Pia Wurztbach was one of the casualties of answering in Filipino. She delivered strong but her answer failed to register among the foreign dignitaries that served as judges.

        My worry lies if they manage to win MUP. How will they manage the media tour that requires complex conversations? IMG made their preference obvious through the years with the kind of queen they want. SPEAKERS. It will be a real bummer tagging along with an interpreter that dials down the mood and makes interviews very awkward.

        Latin countries version 2019 have moved far ahead by sending strong English speaking candidates. Delivering a speech in English hits a real-time home run impact among the judges as suppose to the interrupted installment answers via translation. While they’re moving forward, we’re sliding backward naman.

        There’s always other time and place to display the beauty of our spoken dialect/language but not in the most crucial time in answering QnA in MUP especially in MU.

  15. I already watched the whole red carpet presentation on YouTube. Sa dinami-dami ng social media na nag-feature nito, you can get fresh info from other generous vloggers. I would say na sa beauty pageant talaga, iba na ‘yung mga may experience na sa pageant o kaya byukonera na talaga, mahuhusay sila magdala at solid ang kanilang pasarela, and their struts are amazing. I saw Apriel Smith, Michelle Gumabao and Alaiza Malinao how they slayed the presentation. Pero minsan naman mas aliw panoorin yung raw at rookie sa pageantry kase mas interesting sila at hind predictable ang move.

    That’s all.

  16. Parang F channel video montage at ang ganda ng musical score! Ang galing ng mga glossy paandar ng MUP. Something I wished for the longest time sa BBP sa mga activities nila over the past years.

    Bagay na bagay sa backdrop na Manila Hotel although sana hindi last minute ang AP final selection. It would have given more time for some ladies to prepare and choose a better wardrobe. But still, the whole presentation was executed with obvious taste.

  17. infairness, ang ganda ng Lola Shamcey. Mas mukha pa syang kandidata kesa sa ibang kasali. Saving of this event is Shamcey. Ganda. For me sya ang dapat 2nd RU sa MU 2011. Favor lang kay Ms Brazil na sya ang 2nd RU dahil dun yung pageant.

  18. parang money contest dun sa barrio.

    proceeds go to the renovation of baranggay hall.

      • Oh gurl please… just so you know, I really dont care about Gaffud. I care about philippine pageantry. If you cant handle my sarcasm, you dont need to read my posts. Kung di mo talaga matiis, then it is not my problem.

  19. Front row si Blogger Boy. VIP. Naks! 🙂

    The entire affair felt like a desfile at 31 Rue Cambon. I can imagine the creative director hidden at the top of the stairs as to be undetected from the “mosh pit”, watching as it all unfolds…..

    Folks are going ape over the dusky-and-frizzy-maned Biliran rep! With her high forehead and small nose and mouth, she will be the perfect black Barbie we have all fantasized about for….Tokyo Dome!

    • Agree with you parang andun na tayo daming magagaling daming kilala mga veterans pero si black barbie from Biliran talaga ang napapansin ko hahaha. Okay lang madami mag disagree pero mukha nya ang lagi kung naalala…..such a unique beauty at mukhang promdi pero sweet…liit nang mukha…

    • The hall was memorable to me Flor. The JS Prom of PSHS in 1998 was held in that hall. I was teaching then with the aforesaid school and invited as one of the guests being a faculty member. Si Jonas Gaffud kagagaling lang sa Hogwarts School. Diretso na sa Manila Hotel at hindi na nakapagbihis. Yan ang uniform nila sa Magic P.E. Class. Si Shamcey naman ay galing sa Wonderland kaya fairy-fairy ang peg. Si Lian Ramos ay parang kagagaling lang sa isang charity ball/fashion event at hindi na rin nakapagbihis. NAKU FLOR, PURO MGA SCHOOLMATE MO ANG TATLONG ETITS. Matatalinong KATULAD MO Flor. He, he, he…

      • @Paul, as I always said, UP blood smells UP blood. You may be brutally frank and Flor is eternally enjoying her light banters in her daily horsing around this blogpost. But I have been smelling UP blood in the two of you.
