  1. Patrixia ang tipong candidate n kumakain ng microphone. I remember the local pageants she joined way back college days. She swept most if not all with victory. Sana mabigyan sya ng chance sa q&a. Once she answers a question, she shines her way to victory. Go Pat!

    • @ Mhel Arado As per Mr. Tinio’s bio on her, she now has the distinction of having the Top 3 Filipinas Nationals in her pageant resume – BBP, MWP, and now MPE. Ambassador and Redvocates thrown in, as well. WOW! Contesera. Enjoy niya talaga mag-pageant? 🙂

  2. If there is one pageant which I had high hopes on a sustained advocacy-related action 365 days a year, it is this home grown beauty contest. Alas, after a short period of pre-pageant activities culminating in a 1- or 2-hour made-for-TV special, we hardly hear a bleat. Climate change is the most important issue facing the world today because of the looming existential threat to humanity. That makes the ME platform the most relevant defining raison d’etre of all pageants. But for years it seems to offer lip service to issue of environmental protection and preservation.

    • Last year, the world’s students went out of their classrooms to demand from their lawmakers, and the UN, concrete climate action. Where was ME in this march? Taal Volcano erupted. I saw photo ops of Binibinis distributing relief goods to evacuees. (I hope ME also had some related activities which did not reach my knowledge from where I work halfway across the globe). MUP emerged. Its innovative business model and forward-looking processes is shifting the beauty pageant paradigm, not only in the Philippines but also worldwide. I hope ME will level up.

  3. GUSTO KO TALAGANG MANALO si Sherry Anne Tormes BECAUSE ASIDE FROM I LIKE HER BEAUTY & PERSONALITY (warm & friendly), THIS YEAR WILL BE HER LAST CHANCE AS SHE IS TURNING 28 YEARS OLD. BUT THE GREATEST THREAT to HER WINNING the CROWN is Patrixia Sherly Santos who is A LAW GRADUATE from the SAME UNIVERSITY where FLOR TULA studied and finished a college degree. A bit sad for this.

    ANO ang COMMENT MO DITO Miss FLOR TULA (Ang Puting Diwata)? He, he, he…

    • @ paul You are sad that I went to the same university as Patrixia? OK, I can take it….. 🙂

      I think it was @ DanDan who said it’s best to start one’s fledgling pageant career at MPE as he made the observation that younger ladies are preferred and on the basis of this I had in mind the lass from the City of Pines (who brings to my mind Francine Prieto in her FHM Philippines prime). Besides, the BLOODY Q&A there, enough to induce La Nina if enough trees are planted, will be good training ground. Then, “retire” at either BBP or MUP, by which time you should in theory already be polished.

      @ Norman Roxie Baeyens was 1st Runner-up at MUCT 2019? The one where Yves Campos won the Mister portion?

      You know whom I would have wanted in the Elemental Court, too? Riana Pangindian, Sandra Lemonon, (alas! They are at MUP and we all know JG despises sending his wards to known KF stomping grounds), and Donnalyn Erno (ALAS! She apparently opted to defer Nationals this year and is now the reigning Saniata ti Ilocos Sur). Also nice to consider are BB’s like Denise Omorog, Darren Jane Genobisa, and the BEAUTIFUL Alannis Binoya.

      So, our pageant paradigms seem polar opposites of each other.

      • Of course NOT FLOR. I AM HAPPY THAT BOTH PATRICIA & YOU WENT TO THE SAME SCHOOL. PAREHO KAYONG MATALINO. He, he, he… I AM SAD for ANNE TORMES for her chance of winning the crown is slimmer because of Patrixia Sherly Santos. PERO BAKA NAMAN MAS PILIIN NILA SI ANNE over PATRIXIA PARA HINDI MUNA TAYO MANALO ULIT ng MISS EARTH crown THIS YEAR.
