  1. While it’s true that Pia was so focused on her game plan and may have rarely mingled with others, she was never snubbed or looked down on other girls. She was just following what Shamcey told her to “know when to peak” which is very smart kasi kung mataas ang energy mo everyday, pagdating ng crucial stages of the competition, pagod ka na and it will show on your performance and presentation. Maraming front runners ang naging ganun and that is a fact. Walang masama when you focus on what really matters most. If your eyeing for Miss Congeniality, go for it but I doubt you will win the crown. Even Lu Sierra had repeatedly told her girls to focus, focus, focus, be nice but stay focus. Yun din ang advice nya kay Olivia Culpo.

    Ariadna could have phrase it in a positive way, what she said was all negative as if walang positive qualities si Pia at all. When you say “Ghost,” it means you are dead, no life, no energy, wall paper, wall flower, a background. Which is not true. It would be hard to miss her smize, herwalk, her presentation skills. I agree when someone here said that Philippines have been sending very strong girls to the Miss Universe every year since Venus Raj broke the decade long drought. We even nearly got the crown through Janine Tugonon. It’s next to impossible not to notice the Philippine sash even before Pia won, we have secured Miss World, Miss International, Miss Supranational crowns all on the same year – 2013. Philippines was on fire that year! That is super hard to miss. Powerhouse tayo sa Asia. It just means na may attitude problem si Ariadna. Feeling nya superior sya and unbeatable siya. Dun cya nagkamali. Never underestimate anyone and everyone. That is arrogance. She is arrogant and even a judge said she was downright rude to her translator and that she is a diva. MOU does not want to work with someone like that. Most if not all pageant organization does not want to work with that type of behavior. She is very far from the previous Colombian first runner up who were just so happy for the girls who got the crown i.e., the 1994 edition when Miss Colombia was so happy for Miss India. You could not fake that kind happiness for a winner.

    If honesty card ang usapan, okay, she is entitled to say that but to end her interview without saying any positive towards a winner or your opponent means you are still bitter. She could have said even if she did not consider Pia as a competitor, she could she how she deserve to win the crown or the amount of work she has done for the organization is really good. It showed naman how Pia work really hard for the advocacies and projects of the organization and they even extended her contract which is a testament that she is well loved the MOU. Any person with pure intention; without any malice or bitterness will say something positive, a praise, a kind word, kahit isa man lang. You have to balance the negative with the positive. She ended her answer as if wala talagang nagawang mabuti or tama si Pia.

    Also, did Ariadna smack her head on a brick wall when she claimed she only saw Pia twice at di nya maalala na may photo shoot silang dalawa? Narcissistic ba cya? Personality Disorder yun. Masyado kang focus sa sarili mo, at wala ka nang makitang iba? That is not what the Miss Universe Organization is looking for. The organization is looking for a role model, not Victoria Secret model. Ano yun, during your reign panay pictorials ka lang? They are looking for someone who is relatable, marketable and engaging and Pia ticked all the boxes.

    That is why I understood why Filipino pageant fans felt insulted on behalf of Pia.

  2. Jusko naman, npka emosyonal ng mga reaction ng mga Pinoy. Super sensitive, wala naman ibig sabihin na masama si Ariadna. Sumagot lang ng tanong, and sinagot nya with all honesty. Walang sugar coating o kplastikan.

    On the other hand, di nyo ba nagets, naisahan ni Pia si Ariadna, pinasakay na akala mo di sya threat, come prelims and finals, ayun Boom!

    Kaya minsan lumalaki ang mga issue na wala naman talaga issue in the first place dahil sa mga emosyonal na tao.

    Nacacahiya actually na ngdadakdak ang mga Pinoy sa galit kay Ariadna dahil sa sinabi nya, tapos yung ngsabi eh kebs lang kasi sa kanya naman eh wala yun. LOL

  3. I think wrong choice of words ang nagamit ni Ariadna, regarding sa “ghost”. Palagay ko ang gusto lang sabihin ay hindi nya ineexpect na mananalo si Pia who came from nowhere. Parang tingin nya kay Pia ay dark horse ng competition dahil di nya ito nakikita o napapansin tapos biglang nagpakitang gilas sa finals. Yun lang yon, masyado lang maka-react ang karamihan.

    5 years ago, siguro naman naka-move on na sya… interview lang ito na sinagot nya.

  4. Base sa translation wala namang meaning na hinde deserved ni pia ang crown. ariadna was just stuck in a trump qualities. thats why for her pia was not a competition or a threat. but she was surprised for sure on the finals. and yes pia was peaking at the right time. kaya ghost sya kay ariadna. minsan lang nakikita. and when she did saw her ganun pa din waley sya ma feel kay pia as a threat but i think we dont need to say anything bad against her for telling us that pia was not a threat for her. its her own opinion and ganyan din naman tayong mga fans diba? pag dating ng finals may mga nakakapasok na hinde natin napansin as a threat from arrival to activities. in short. na understimate or Dahil nagbago na nga ang hinahanap since new owner na kaya nanalo si pia. But u know guys. Kung meron man dapat kainisan. yon ay si Hector. saang planeta ba galing yan at now lang natanong kay ary. ang tagal na nyan. people thought ary already move on and there he is still asking about mu2015. ayan binabash na naman si ary ng mga OA na fans.

  5. Pia was very focused during the pageant, and she kept it low-key. I remember the pictorial in front of Planet Hollywood where everybody rushed to front, including Ariadna. Pia mellowly walked and ended up at the very last row, very easy to miss. She knew that what counted is your performance in front of the organization and the judges. Even I was surprised by how the pageant turned out — I had no idea the kind of pasabog Pia would unleash on finals night.

  6. Eto lang yun guys eh, just remember that the standards of beauty in Miss Universe FIVE YEARS AGO were very different than the ones we’re familiar with today. 2015 was the first year under IMG and so pretty much the prevailing idea of what a Miss Universe is at that time is still the supermodel glamazon type, perpetuated by the Trump Era Latina domination. so I understand where Ariadna was coming from. Of course now we know that IMG does not look for the supermodel type because all five IMG queens are not glamazons (they gear more towards the classy, elegant, and well-spoken category), but back then hindi naman yun alam ni Ariadna

    She was asked what she felt at that time, so syempre yun ang isasagot nya. Whether or not nagbago na ang views nya towards kay now still wont change how she viewed Pia at that specific moment five years ago.

  7. I have doubt in the truthfulness of Adriadna’s statement. With the consecutive placement of Philippine delegates from 2010 to 2014, I hardly believe that she did not find Pia a threat to the crown. But if she was really telling the truth, I do not find it offensive. However, with Miss Bulgaria’s revelation, that reinforces my doubt about Adriadna. But then again, There are 3 sides of the story, that of the opposing parties and the truth.

  8. Korek. Pinapalaki lang. Nakakaintindi naman ako ng Spanish and hindi naman offensive ang pagkakasabi nya. Gusto lang naman i-point out ni Colombia na hindi nya masyadong nakikita si Pia. Minsan lang. Binanggit nya kung kelan. Pansin nya rin kasi na madalas mag-isa (kung anuman ang translation mg solitary sa Filipino)

    • Inuna kasi ang emosyon kaysa mag-isip mabuti. They have mannerisms that dont mean anything to them but may be offensive to us and vice versa. Nuances ng culture. Mag-isip muna kasi.

      • Diskarte rin naman ni Pia yung “know when to peak” kaya kung di sya napansin ni colombia, it means, tagumpay talaga si Pia sa plano nya.
        Hanggang ngayon, minumulto pa rin si colombia nung fantasma(ghost) na tinutukoy nya hahaha

      • Ewan ko ba sa mga tao, Madam. Talak muna bago mag-isip. Pwede ngang praise yun kay Pia coz her plan to peak only when needed succeeded. Kalerky.

  9. Some said that Ariadna’s “ghost” statement on Pia was misinterpreted? Pinapalaki daw ang mga Pinoy sa isyu na to?

  10. I love Miss Bulgaria, she desserves a better placement than Miss Colombia… Some insider did see Ariadna act condescending over the other girls in the way she reacts to their clothing and performance… Miss Bulgaria’s statement confirms that.

    • Super duper agree, C2F. Radostina is the true essence of a beauty queen. I love her since the time she cheered for our Queen. Pero, ni minsan, hindi nabanggit ni Pia si Radostina sa kanyang mga interview dahil siguro ayaw n’yang madagdagan ang kontrobersya because of her belief that her co-candidates did not stir a division among themselves. Notwithstanding, a lot of Filipinos have loved Radost Todorova. Daming Filipino likers sa social media ng hitad.

      That’s all.

      • Nabanggit ni Pia sa interview nya kay tita lavinia.
        Di daw sila magkakilala during the pageant season. Nito na lang huli sila nagkaroon ng pag-uusap.
