30 comments on “Life at Home with Catriona Gray

  1. Catriona has modest beginnings, we all know… She does not come from old money.

    She should end up with a MAN who can assure she will be able to continue the now-quite-good life she enjoys. That’s it.

    T is t. Men are the same. ‘Di kailangan’g pugi. Basta, kaya’ng magpaligaya ng babae, swak.

    🙂

    It’s purely primordial evolution. Women will seek alpha males. Not pretty boi’s trying to be.

  2. The blogger previously wrote that Catriona is a “perfect example of using social media way beyond what other successful pageant winners have utilized it for”. We know she has hordes of online followers. What interests me however is why this phenomenon does not translate into active endorsements of some global brands, especially cosmetics lines, the way other international pageant winners did. Is it her personal branding image? Is it the psychographic profile of her fans? Is it the disconnect between her personal brand and the psychographic profile of her fans?

    • @ scorg Now that you mentioned it…..

      Was it perhaps to her disadvantage that she was TOO IDENTIFIED with Filipinos? Recall those comments way back that claimed MUO made so much from her during her reign, and that those were endorsement deals for exclusively Philippines brands like Jollibee and Smart? Remember, too, how an Australian tabloid “claimed’ her as a state rep of Australia at MU 2018? Why was that Australian obviously publicity “stunt” not “explored further”? Did Filipinos and Cat’s handlers and devoted/loyal circle of fans-supporters naively assume her appeal was universal enough as to snag endorsement contracts with no effort? If so, then why did mainstream Italian media NOT make a big fuss of her appearance at Milano Fashion Week?

      Not even Thailand, which gave opportunities to a young Catriona Gray and crowned her in 2018, ever hired again….

      I suspect there is more to this….. and I feel this entire Clint-Cat-Sam “love triangle” has basis….

      Mr. Tinio, why is @ CatrionaFan upset with you, po? Why do I read about Jojo Bragais not being on good terms with her anymore? JG and A&Q, I get…. Blogger Man, SPILL ALL SOON, please.

      • @Flor, I think her being “too identified with Filipinos” does not hurt her branding image as much as being too identified with a fan base whose rabid adulation for their idol almost border on perceptual xenophobia against other fan groups. I feel sorry for Catriona, but all her efforts to build a personal brand of warmth, exuberance and empathy are just eroded by rude overzealous followers who were, and are, all over the social media. Marketing executives cannot dissociate a celebrity endorser from the fan base who is the ultimate recepient of the advertising message.

      • @Flor, if you are looking for a celebrity endorser of a premium cosmetic brand, would your advertising message resonate to a consumer group with a psychographic profile of Cat’s online followers? Maybe if we are looking for a celebrity endorser for an economy laundry bar. But then again, Cat’s brand image is too upscale. See the disconnect?

  3. Pia and Cat will never be president but they can run for office to be mayor congresswoman or senator .
    It would be nice to see a cute boy like Sam next to a powerful woman .

    However , the best scenario for Cat is to marry a hot and loaded man … Does SMA or Lucio Tan have a son ?

    • @ Fabian Reyes YYAAASSSSS!!!

      Mr. Tinio, binata po ba si Fred Yuson?

      🙂

  4. One of the best international beauty queens. Pretty, multi-talented, and well-rounded. She is like a flower who blooms wherever it is planted.

    Just noticed: Doon sa mga blogs about MUP 2020 candidates at iba pa, laging 3 commenters lang ang laging aktibo at nagpapalitan ng kanilang opinyon. No need to mention their names, just check the old posts sa blog ni Tito Norms. Pero nang maging Catriona na ang topic biglang naglabasan ulit yung mga dating commenters…. hahaha. Siguro most of us are not really interested in pageants anymore dahil sa covid19 pandemic.

  6. I missed the part about Milby Dude. I really don’t care what Cat does with her private life. That being said, I wish all the absolute best-est for Jake and Kylie. 🙂

    Ang CUTE nu’ng bakla’ng fren niya. ‘Yung naka-black tank at pig ears….

    I wonder if her handlers are open to working with Erwann Heusaff on the promotion of indigenous arts and crafts. When it comes to accessing the remotest cultural gems of the country, he has no peer! Using what apparently were his robust connections in “high places”, he got the late Gina Lopez to show him around Tawi-Tawi, with armed escorts to boot. On his YouTube canale is the ONLY video footage I have ever seen of the GORGEOUS waters in the area. And on his Bontoc-Sagada leg, he dons the native menswear, dines in a pub which reminds him of those in the Alps, and discusses with LGU officials how everything is able to be kept pristine while being profitable.

    • True. Para siyang nag-join ng Miss Supranational and won. She settled for something less. Cat deserves someone better.

    • Ano toh? Ano ba ang inaakala nyo kaya sumali SI cat para makabingwit ng mataba ng isda? Ano sya, kalapatung mababa ang lipad at ginamit ang BBP o MU para sa pang sariling kapakanan? Bakit anong mali kay Sam? Cat can make her own decision. And choosing Sam will not make her lesser. Nakakahiya kayo.

  7. Sam Milby ?
    I don’t think it’s gonna last . Sam looks too ‘weak’ for Cat.
    I hope she marries someone hot and loaded so she can be queen for life

  8. Papa P is jealous of Catriona!!! hihihihih jk jk jk…

    Congrats Sam and Catriona. I think Clint is a hot little german sausage still. hihihih

  9. I hope Mayor Vico Sotto finds his way to Catriona. Mayor Vico deserves a woman who can work with him in his aspirations to our country, and who can beautifully stand with him in all his journey towards becoming the next top leader of the country. Catriona also deserves a man with a new brand of leadership and who can make her the first lady of the country. Imagining them paired together makes me giggle. Sana lang talaga.

    No to Sam Milby, please.

    That’s all.

    • I’m all for Vico Sotto’s political career and future achievements but I don’t want Catriona for him tbh. I’d rather for Catriona to stay away from politics and politicians, it’s not called the game of the devils for nothing after all. Cat seems happy with Sam Milby though so I don’t have to worry about that.

    • So true Ana WL. They’ll be a formidable couple noh?! Naegzyte naman ako for a Vicotriona possibility. But if destiny has Samtriona instead, well who am I to oppose.

      • If they end up together, then we are going to have the most inspiring power couple in the country. Imagine, yung Presidente natin na masipag, nirerespeto ang due process of law, hindi trapo, hinahangaan at sinusunod ng mga tao, tapos yung wife n’ya may advocacy on the side, napakasipag din, matalino, creative, charmer, maganda, pino-promote ang indigenous craft, ano na lang ‘diba?

        Well, may ten years pa naman para mangyari ang naiisip ko. Sabi nga ni Vico, at least bago s’ya mag-40 years old, mag-aasawa na sya. Kaya si Catriona, okay lang na maranasan ang maraming bagay. Pero parang duda ako na sila ni Sam Milby. Parang gimmick lang ito para mapag-usapan sila. Remember, pareho silang under Cornerstone.

        I can see how the stars are written on Mayor Vico’s political career. He is going to be our next President.

        That’s all!

      • @Adrienne. Siguro most of us are not really interested in fillers anymore… as there will only be one winner
