  1. Di ka talaga papasukin dun kaya nga inaabangan mo sa labas mga kotse para lumahad ka. Nadikit ka lang sa side mirror ng naglimos sa yo taga dun ka na rin? Sobrang panaginip naman yan. Gumising ka nga vakla!

  2. Di ka talaga papapasukin doon. Kaya mukha ka ngang timawang nakaabang sa mga lalabas na kotse para lumahad. nakahawak ka lang sa side mirror ng sports car na naglimos sa yo taga roon ka na rin? Sobrang panaginip naman yan vakla!

  3. Dun n lng kayo magkudaan kay ZT post…kawawa nmn wala p comment,4 hours n ata. 🤣

  4. Daming chakang triggered sa comments ko about Karen. Sakit ng katotohanan ‘no? Ganyan talaga yan mga vaklush. Di lang naman ako ang nakapansin niyan kay Karen kundi BUONG MUNDO maliban sa mga earthlings na gaya niyong hindi mapintasan. Mga galit sa pagkapanalo ng super duper drop dead gorgeous insuperable beautiful Karen ay ang mga sumusunod:

    LATINOS
    INDIANS
    INDONESIANS
    THAIS
    VIETNAMESE
    AFRICANS
    ANTARCTICANS
    BUKAS MATANG MGA PINOY

    Mga nakakakitang super deserving si Karen sa pagkapanalo niya at walang katapat: BULAG NA EARTHLINGS. Chweh!

    PS: OO NA MATALINO NA YANG SI KAREN. PERO YUNG MAKALAGPAS SIYA SA BEAUTY OF FACE AND POISE ROUND SA TOP 16 DAHIL SA DAMI NG MGA PINOY JUDGES SA PANEL, JUSKO, MASASABI MONG NAPAKA-OBVIOUS NA NG LUTUAN. CHWEH!

  5. Agree ako kay Ms Vina except ung sobrang pagbash nya kay Karen Ibasco. To be honest, di nga deserve si Karen maging winner nang gabing yun. I repeat, nang gabing yun. Di siya masyadong kagandahan at maraming mas deserving sa kanya pero nanalo dahil napakagaling sumagot. But when she passed on the crown kay Miss Vietnam, she was at her most beautiful self. Kung siguro, ganun siya kaganda on her coronation night, walang magtatanong bakit siya nanalo. Kaya nga, nasabi ko, “nang gabing yun” kasi she did not look as great as she was when she crowned Miss Vietnam. But Ika nga nila, “tapos na ang 2017. 2020 na tayo.” Move on na ang lahat….. Peace

  6. Si KATHARINA SVENSSON & HER COURT ang TOPIC SA POST na ito. PERO TALAGANG MAPUPUNTA sa KAPANGITAN ang USAPAN at SAGUTAN dito. HINDI TALAGA MAIIWASAN. HE, HE, HE…

    IT WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH that KAREN WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE TOP 16. BUT MAKING IT TO THE TOP 8 WAS ALREADY VERY UNFAIR ESPECIALLY to OTHER FAR MORE DESERVING CANDIDATES who were NOT GIVEN THE CHANCE to be IN THE TOP 16. She was ONE of the WORST if NOT the WORST in the swimsuit round. TALAGANG PINABORAN SIYA. HINDI na SIYA DAPAT NAKAUSAD pa sa TOP 8. THAT’S the PROBLEM of HAVING MANY FILIPINO JUDGES in the PANEL, THEY CANNOT TAKE OUT their SENSE of NATIONALISM in (Fair) JUDGING. AND THAT’S INJUSTICE.

    BY CROWNING KAREN, MISS EARTH SUFFERED A LOT IN TERMS OF CREDIBILITY & REPUTATION. BEFORE THIS, Miss Earth had already faced a LOT OF ISSUES & PROBLEMS concerning its management & operation. HINDI PA TALAGA SILA NATUTO. MISS EARTH HAS BEEN WIDELY MOCKED WORLDWIDE for crowning Karen. KAREN was as well HEAVILY BASHED. KUNG HINDI SIYA KINORONAHAN ni Lorraine, SHE WON’T BE BASHED. AND it PUT the PHILIPPINES in BAD LIGHT! (Once again)

    Ang tanong – MAY NAKUHA BA TAYONG MAGANDA O POSITIBO sa PAGKAPANALO ni KAREN sa Miss Earth? ANG MALAKING SAGOT – WALA, WALA, WALA…

    NAKU NORMAN FIRST THROWBACK PA LANG ITO sa MISS EARTH, PERO MUKHANG WAR ZONE na ang POST na ITO. Si KATHARINA SVENSSON ang PINAG-UUSAPAN, PERO MAUUWI at MAUUWI PA RIN ang USAPAN at BAKBAKAN sa KAPANGITAN ni KAREN at ng iba pang pangit na PINABORAN. Hay na lang! IBANG TOPIC NA – MGA PANGIT na MISS WORLD WINNERS naman. He, he, he…

    • Isa ka pang nagmamarunong dito… ang sukatan nyo kasing mga walang alam ay kagandahan, nakalimutan nyo ang ibang aspeto ng patimpalak. Nga pala nagandahan ba kayo kay Zozibini?
      At least si Karen may utak. Hindi kagaya nyong ang utak ay nasa bunganga.

      • Sa BEAUTY OF FACE AND POISE ROUND sa Top 16 ng Miss Earth, ganda ang jinajudge, hindi talino. Nakalusot lang yang si Karen dahil sa dami ng mga pinoy judges sa panel. As per Zozibini, from speech to swimsuit at gown presentation maganda talaga, solid kumbaga. Hindi naman BEAUTY OF FACE agad ang jinudge sa MU para makausad ka sa bawat rounds. One more thing, dahil sa di nga kagandahan yang si Zozibini, dami ding pinoy ang nambabash sa kanya. Go to Miss Universe page comment sections. Latinos at Filipinos ang mga nakakahiya. So, sa iba pwedeng gawin yan pero kay Karen hindi? Mas questionable ang pagkapanalo ni Karen kumpara kay Zozibini. At least walang South African judge sa panel unlike sa panahon ni Karen, jusme, talaga namang “in the Felepens, by the Felepens and for the Felepens. Chweh!

      • @misstissa with all due respect to you and to both ladies, Zozibini may not be the prettiest in her batch, but she definitely had a face that can easily be marketed, madaling gawan ng kwento para maibenta ang beauty nya to a wider audience. More than that, Zozibini has a way of affecting the audience just by her smile and her presence. Her aura and bearing definitely commands attention. Karen simply does not have these qualities. Karen maybe pretty, but there’s definitely something missing. She’s just way harder to market even to her countrymen.

      • Who are you to call me idiot?
        Naka-capital pa ha? Alam na! Hahaha!

  7. Kaya kaunti lang mga high caliber candidates na sumasali dito eh (frontrunner crossovers from BBP and MWP) dahil nga ayaw nilang maging produkto ng cooking show. May mangilan ngilan na sumasali from BBP pero mostly yung mga inignore lang ng huli. Chweh!

  8. The environmental theme could easily make this pageant the pacesetter and the gold standard in the industry, especially now when climate change is fast becoming the existential threat to humanity.. But for two decades now, it has not brought the pageant at the forefront of climate action. Its ascription to environment preservation seems just like a nice-to-have tagline, not a real call to action by empowered women. The excruciating reality was before our very eyes last year when the students in the world’s key cities marched out of their classrooms and stormed their respective legislatures, and the UN General Assembly, to call for urgent climate action, And where were the so-called “Earth Warriors”? In glittering gowns, they were busy sashaying before the altar of Mother Earth, mouthing paeans about environmental protection.

    • But it is not yet late for this homegrown beauty pageant to revisit the essence of its advocacy and make it a potent force for economic and social change. The climate change roots of mutating lethal virus that in a few weeks screeched the global economies to a halt, and changed the social fabric of the planet, is a challenge and an opportunity for ME to take up the cudgels for relevance in this industry. This is the pageantry that has bragging rights to partner with UN Agencies, governments, the academe, and research institutions. Increasingly, corporations are putting environmental issues front and center of their business, not just a CSR credo. I don’t see why it would be difficult for ME to get big corporate sponsors.

      • This trailblazing concept that was hatched in the Philippines at the onset of the new millennium attests to the forward-thinking character of the pageant-loving Filipinos. I hope the organizers will make the concept come alive and will make the Philippines truly the world’s pageant powerhouse. Note that MUP’s aggressive and innovative stance, and its open-ended platform for any empowerment advocacy including environmental protection, can easily steal the thunder from any established pageant institution.

    • True enough. Tapos kung makalait yung ibang mayayabang na EARTHLINGS sa advocacy ng ibang pageants, jusko wagas. Number daw sa lahat ng pageant ang advocacy ng Miss Earth. Siguro oo sa relevance, pero may actions ba? Tanim puno dito at doon, pulot ng basura everywhere, oo nga malaking tulong yang mga yan pero yung pagutilize ng mga queens nila sa pagpromote ng awareness, kulang talaga. Kaya kung advocacy, mas may buhay at realistic pa din yung sa Miss World. Although both of them are cooking shows, maganda naman talaga din ang sinusulong. Kaso lang mas najujustify ng Miss World yung frontline/tagline nila kesa sa Miss Earth. Chweh!

    • Miss Earth serves as platform to inform the public about environmental degradation. It also serves as platform to educate the public on how to protect and preserve the environment. Miss Earth is the educator, we, the the viewing public, are the students. Afterall, taking care of the environment is every person’s responsibility.

  9. kailan ba nag start ang mu nexus crown? the elemental crowns of ME that year is almost have similarity to nexus crown.

    • @ jed Hello. We are happy to hear from you, po. 🙂

      The earliest wearer of the Nexus I can think of is Stefania Fernandez.

      Definitely AFTER 1999 na kasi Mpule Kwelagobe still had the Sarah Coventry-type.

    • 2009 -2013 ginamit ang Nexus Crown sa Miss Universe.
      Nauna ang Mikimoto crown after ng Chandelier crown. Ibinalik ang Mikimoto nung 2016.

  10. Some of the most undeserving placements of our candidates sa pageant na ito:

    CATHERINE UNTALAN, yeah she is tall and bright but heck, her beauty is underwhelming for a runner up finish.

    ATHENA IMPERIAL, mukha siyang longkatu nung mga kapwa niya elemental queens sa Miss Earth 2011. Oo na UP grad din siya pero hello, Miss Water? Masyadong mataas pa sa height niya yung placement.

    STEPHANY STEFANOWITZ, Miss Air? Too high for her. Maputi lang siya pero ok na siguro kung itinop 8 na lang siya. Her body was underwhelming during the pre pageant shows yet she bagged a silver on that. Kakahiya sa ibang mga physically fit and confident kesa sa kanya.

    KAREN IBASCO, most bashed queen of 2017. Magtataka pa ba kayo? Well, hindi siya kagandahan talaga for a MAJOR international pageant title. Aminin niyo. Hirap talaga ipagtanggol ang beauty niya. Bakit hindi siya deservivng for this title? Susme, sa Top 16 Beauty of Face and Poise round pa lang dapat ligwak na ito. TOP 16 lang talaga dapat inabot ng ganda niya that night. She shouldn’t have made Top 8.

    CELESTE CORTESI, ok na ako sa Top 8 sa kanya. Maganda naman talaga kasi siya. Pero yung mag Top 10 siya sa preliminary intelligence round? Susme, mapapataka ka na lang talaga. Tapos yung mga inaasahan mong papasok sa Intelligence Round, mga hindi pumasok.

    Pero there are some girls din naman na nakikita kong deserve ng higher placements:

    ANGELIE CLAUDETTE DELOS REYES
    SANDRA SEIFERT
    TAMERA SZIJARTO
    CARLENE AGUILAR
    JANELLE TEE

    One more thing, tigil-tigilan na sana ng Miss Earth Org yung pagiging faney nila sa mga half pinays na nagrerepresent ng ibang bansa. Naimbey talaga ako dun sa Top 8 finish nung neckless na kapatid na KC Concepcion at Melanie Mader na fill in lang naman kahit walang go signal ng Miss Earth Austria Org. Ni hindi nga man lang kinongratulate o nirecognize si girl ng bansang nirepresent niya. Walang kaalam alam mga Austrian na may shundidate pala sila. Chweh! Long live Miss Earth and Madame Lorraine! No to Amdao Cruz and other DOMs in the future!

    Baka mahurt na naman mga vaklush na Earthlings dito ha. Truth lang yan para magising din naman kayo sa katotohanan.

    • Daig mo pa pala ang mga judges? Dami mong alam day, kung makapagcomment kala mo chairman ka ng isang malaking pageant.

      • I like them both lalo na si Angelia. Dusky at very Pinay. Si Karen Ibasco lang talaga ang sumira. Char!

    • Vaklang gutom, wag kang magmarunong ang pangit sa yo maganda sa kanila. Parang ugali lang yan tingin mo OK ka pero putik ang ugali mo sa iba. Magtayo ka ng sarili mong beauty search vakla galing galingan ka naman eh. Baka naman gutom lang yan dahil wala pang rasyon mula sa barangay nyo?

      • Truth hurts. MAS MARAMING DESERVING NA GIRLS NA NAPAGKAITAN NG SPOTS DAHIL SA MGA BABAENG NILUTO NA IYAN. Kung hindi lang siguro gawang Pilipinas at nakabase sa Pilipinas with full force Pinoy judges ang Miss Earth baka kahit semis mahirapan iyang mga ‘yan. Chweh!

    • Grabeh ka sa panlalait sa mga katulong, madaming magaganda na katulong mas maganda pa sa iyo! May pandemic na COVID na nga sige pa rin kayo, ewan!

    • Vina Yu- kabahan ka nga. Sis, minsan kahit pa alam mong tama ka eh mas magandang tumahimik ka na lang at panahon ang magsabi na ikaw ang tama. Tinalo mo pa si Tito Norman na careful sa mga words na ginagamit nya dahil alam niya ang impact nito. Eh ikaw, hindi ka nag-iisip. Masyado kang self-righteous. Wala kang pakiramdam sa mararamdaman ng mga kandidatang nilalait mo pag nabasa nila to.

      • Kabahan ka din. Masyado kang pakialamera sa may comment ng may comment. Gawa ka ng sarili mong comment thread tapos dun mo pagkapurihan ‘yang mga produkto ng cooking show na yan. Sa Miss World ang galing galing niyong makapintas ng cooking show, eh mas malapit naman hamak yung dito nakabase sa bansa natin. Had Karen or these queens represented other countries, let us say Thailand or Indonesia, tapos sila din naghost o may ari nung MEO, for sure, iba yang ikukuda niyo, COOKING SHOW, COOKING SHOW. Yan for sure ang itatalak niyo buong taon. Chweh!

      • PS: Wag mo akong masis-sis dyan gurl, di kita kapatid. Tito Norman? Feeling pamangkin ka naman ni Sir Norman masyado girl. Send ka ng family lineage tree niyo para maconvince ako. Chweh!

    • Karen Ibasco’s environmental IQ is very high. She is eloquent and she talks with so much sense. She is sweet and she does not appear intimidating. She deserved to win Miss Earth.

      • IT WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH that KAREN WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE TOP 16. BUT MAKING IT TO THE TOP 8 WAS ALREADY VERY UNFAIR ESPECIALLY to OTHER FAR MORE DESERVING CANDIDATES who were NOT GIVEN THE CHANCE to be INCLUDED IN THE TOP 16. She was ONE of the WORST if NOT the WORST in the swimsuit round. TALAGANG PINABORAN SIYA. HINDI na SIYA DAPAT NAKAUSAD pa sa TOP 8. THAT’S the PROBLEM of HAVING MANY FILIPINO JUDGES in the PANEL, THEY CANNOT TAKE OUT their SENSE of NATIONALISM in (Fair) JUDGING. AND THAT’S INJUSTICE.

        BY CROWNING KAREN, MISS EARTH SUFFERED A LOT IN TERMS OF CREDIBILITY & REPUTATION. BEFORE THIS, Miss Earth had already faced a LOT OF ISSUES & PROBLEMS concerning its management & operation. HINDI PA TALAGA SILA NATUTO. MISS EARTH HAS BEEN WIDELY MOCKED WORLDWIDE for crowning Karen. KAREN was as well HEAVILY BASHED. KUNG HINDI SIYA KINORONAHAN ni Lorraine, SHE WON’T BE BASHED. AND it PUT the PHILIPPINES in BAD LIGHT! (Once again)

        Ang tanong – MAY NAKUHA BA TAYONG MAGANDA O POSITIBO sa PAGKAPANALO ni KAREN sa Miss Earth? ANG MALAKING SAGOT – WALA, WALA, WALA…

        NAKU NORMAN FIRST THROWBACK PA LANG ITO sa MISS EARTH, PERO MUKHANG WAR ZONE na ang POST na ITO. SI KATHARINA SVENSSON ang PINAG-UUSAPAN, PERO MAUUWI at MAUUWI PA RIN ang USAPAN at BAKBAKAN sa KAPANGITAN ni KAREN at ng iba pang pangit na PINABORAN. HAY NA LANG.

    • Vina Yu siguro matagal na ng di nababayo? haha… Totoo nga ang kasabihan, “Hurt people, hurt people”. Siguro masyado masalimuot at masakit ang pinagdaanan mo nung kabataan mo or habang lumalaki. May nagmamahal ba sayo?

      • Araw araw akong nababayo ng jowa ko vaks kaya wag mong problemahin yan. At wala naman akong masalimuot na napagdaan sa buhay maliban sa naholdup ako nun sa Recto while studying in FEU. Okay naman ako dito ngayon despite of COVID threat. Maraming nagmamahal at may nagdidilig. Sayo ba? Wala ka sigurong kasama dyan ‘no? Pakialamera ka kasi sa may comment ng may comment eh. Chweh!

      • Susme, ano ‘to away bata? 5555. Sige papatulan kita, mas mabaho sa iyo, pati hininga ng buong pamilya mo. Amoy hanggang dito sa BF Homes. Yuck! Kadiri ka! Happy? Parang tanga attacking ad hominem? Chweh!
