  1. Why are audience members fanning themselves? The AC was defective, then?

    And what about MPE? How will the 2020 Nationals manage now with the nCoV19?

    Will there even still be a ME for 2020?

    And which reminds me,….

    Mr. Tinio, what is Cortesi’s long-term pageant plan? Will The Camp take her in, too?

    • Flor di ba walang aircon ang Folk Arts Theater, kaya FAN sila nang FAN noon. Ha, ha, ha… A couple of times that Miss Earth was held in OUR very own University Theater, may mga nagreklamo rin kasi medyo mahina ang air conditioning system. Another ha, ha, ha… Then one time (si Miss Chile ang nanalo rito), the organizers held the finals outside the National Musem. Umulan, so stop muna hanggang tumila ang ulan. Another time sa Alabang, sa may clubhouse at swimming pool. Mahilig tong si Lorraine sa mga unusual na venue and many times walang AIRCON. Ha, ha, ha…

      IKAW FLOR AATEND KA BA SA FINALS ng MISS EARTH this YEAR KUNG OUTSIDE ANG VENUE? Halimbawa sa Sunken Garden o sa Quezon Memorial Circle? Ha, ha, ha…

      • Miss Earth 2008 and 2010 was held outdoors also. Both held at the amphitheater.

      • @ Pierro Rocco BAGUIO CITY will be a GREAT venue for ME.

        The Mansion House can be for the Press Presentation. Laperal House (now owned by the estate of Lucio Tan?) can be the setting for the NatCos Showcase. And the Botanical Garden can be for the Finals, the night air and pines bathed in orange floodlights. Mid-January will register coldest, and rainfall is practically nil. The winner can then live in the City for a year and be the star of the Panagbenga festivities. As what MUP-Baguio City said in her Beyond The Coastlines video, it is vital that residents THEMSELVES strictly adhere to City laws/rules governing environmental measures, among other things. ME can involve herself in these calls and initiatives.

        BUT, if I were to choose a FOREIGN venue, I would nominate either Ecuador (refer to my comment in the Olga Alava post) or…. ITALY! Yep. Once Europe shakes off the pandemic, the delegates can visit both Lago Maggiore in Stresa and Giardini di Ninfa in Lazio (my comment in a post I no longer recall which one….). Final can be at the ROMANTIC Teatro Antico di Taomina, where Pink Floyd had a reunion concert in 2018.

  2. I would never forget this edition since I helped organize the event’s swimwear video shoot in Oanglao when all 53 delegates visited my home province Bohol. So much to dish and to diss haha especially the behind the scenes. This was the start of my friendship with Peachy

      • I remember most of the European girls overwhelmed with the warm reception of Bohol uring their welcome parade. Bohol is a pageant- crazy province where things can get really personal especially with the Miss Bohol results. You witnessed this yourself Tito Norms when you judged a couple of years ago
