  1. I’ve seen her interview, nakahukab yung balikat niya!

    When she was doing her public speaking in Sampaloc, hawak niya yung mic na hindi maintindihan kung takot siya na may mag-grab ng boobs niya or maluwag yung tube or ayaw niya ma-expose yung kili-kili niya! By body language, it’s a sign of inhibition!

    Ang akin lang, ok lang ba yung ganun? Assuming na kinabukasan close door interview mo sa MU, ganun mo pi-present yung sarili mo sa panel of judges!

    Quesejoda wala pang date ang MU, pero as per timeframe by the end of December, dapat flawless na siya!

    Last year, ansabe kay Gazini?”Guys, trust the process.”Ako, as pageant fans, nagtiwala naman! Hayys! Mabuti pa Trust condom na lang pinagkatiwalaan ko!

    Anyway, quota-quota na ko sa IG sa mga Rabiya fanatics to the extent that I can paraphrase a quote from Miriam Defensor Santiago “I eat bashing as breakfast!”

    Jonas and company made a choice pero kung si Osmel eh kayang palitan ang rep at the last minute by choosing the one who is ready, I hope they are also flexible!

  2. @Fabian..

    I’m not worried about the transformation… I just hope there would be sufficient time… I want Rabiya to enslave herself at the gym.. Somethin lean and athletic but with ample junk on the front and back… and I understand why u keep saying she looks too young… Her cheeks does remind me of a kewpie doll… non invasive RF on the the cheecks would do the trick… I do want the angle of her face be sharp enough to cut through butter… and then back to the styling… I also want to see sophisticated high-fashion looks ASAP! I want her to prove to the pageant world as early as now that she desserves to be in the top 5!

    • @ Closer2Fame You know who has J-A-W-L-I-N-E?

      Yuki Sonoda, MUJ 2020 2nd Runner-up. 🙂

      Go watch videos. RL Lacanienta has a G-E-M in his stable! Hope to see her somewhere….

      • @Fabian

        There is nothing about her that a good stylist could not fix… With more modern fashionable clothes, she would look more sophisticated and cosmopolitan in no time..

    • I envision her to have a Lara Dutta body….broader shoulder, leaner arms and smaller waistline

      • @Anonymous

        In fairness to Rabiya, She has a better bone-structure than Lara Dutta… Gainning a more prominent hourglass figure would be easier for our bet… And its an advantage that Rabiya looks young… Her youthfull looks would look so much better beside the dried up pruney faces of Latinas that got too lean due to excessive cardio and tanning…

  3. The big Hair during the prelim interview made her look really fab and sophisticated . Idk what that big hair hid but that should stay hidden.

  4. What’s with the facial expression? Whoever took that pic deserves a clit pinch .
    It emphasizes Rabiya’s primitivity. Para syang si Nene na nautusang bumlli ng toyo sa kanto ni Mang Ando. But girl is a fighter . So I expect change in the next few months

    • yang pekpek mu lagyan mo ng muriatic acid para mamatay lahat ng uod! wag ang ibang tao ang punahin mo. wala ka na ginawa but cast aspersion sa ibang hamak na mas maganda sayo. kulubot ka na lola. Nov 1 na in a few hours. Humiga ka na sa puntod mo!!!!!!

  5. Poise and grace .. takes a lifetime to develop
    She has less than 6 months to prepare for it

    • @ Fabian Reyes May I?…

      Now that you mention it (poise & grace), you realize Bella might be yet another good example of “the-first-runner-up-actually-won-on-points-but-other-factors-came-into-play”.

      🙂

      BUT, Rabiya might register facially prettier than Bella to most. And it’s STILL a beaucon, after all.

      In any case, The Camp seems to have a keen eye, considering their selection – Alaiza, Bella, and Christelle. I HIGHLY suggest you befriend them! You apparently resonate their mindset.

      • Flor , I’m not sure most people would say Rabiya is superior to Bella facially . Watching their tv appearances , I find Bella the prettiest among the top 5 . It also helps that her posture smile
        facial expressions speaking skills and overall demeanor are way more polished than the rest.

        I like Rabiya’s humility though and her strong personality . I just don’t think she is ready ( or will be ready ) for the big show.

        Idk if the Camp has the right strategy . They can’t even make their protégés friendly to each other . What do you think , Flor?

      • @ Fabian Reyes Sino’ng hindi friendly? Si Alaiza? If so, then her inability to penetrate the Final 5 is justified. Never mind her literally shaky Preliminary Interview.

        I think The Camp will, as a result, be even more selective in the future. Just think, Christelle got the Ginebra job (over Sandra, as @ unorthodox shared)! And the fact that they got placements for all three of their wards indicates they are on to something. Pero, c’mon! ‘Di na siguro nila kasalanan kung sinuman’g masama ang ugali… Tulad nu’ng sabi mo dito sa blog noon – why blame KF for Imelda Schweighart’s behavior at ME?

        I think The Camp might field not more than two (2) candidates next year. Lean, but classy-sharp!

        I think, like you, they will focus on MU and totally ignore other pageants. What this means is that if Bella decides to cross-over (which I think is highly unlikely anyway!), she will be ON HER OWN.

        Yes, I find Rabiya on the puny “neneng” side. Small, but then also terrible. I’ll be happy if she can duplicate Fred Cull’s placement. That’s still an improvement from Gazini’s.

      • Flor , it’s not clear if they had one common meeting place to train .. or it’’s individualized.
        It’s not hard to Find why these 3 would not click having come from extremely different backgrounds.
        As for Bella , I’m not sure either if her camp will continue to train her if she decides to try MWP . One of the guys had said in one interview that The Team came about because they were MU fans .
        I just wish they had given the crown to Bella because she was ready
        Rabiya has great potential but she needs a lot of work and hallelujah to do well at MU next yr

      • @fabian bella winning first ru might even be the other side of the sword for nepotism. The org might not want to crown the niece of Margie moran and mar roxas for their first edition
        Even if Bella excels
        She is also the dilawan candidate being a niece of Mar

      • Bonsai , I understand . But had Bella won, no one would have complained because of her stellar performance.
        Rabiya is fine . She just makes me nervous as she has a lot to work on .

      • Mukhang hindi na part ng The Camp si Alaiza since hindi sya naka same PPE nung arrival like kay Bella and Christelle. Wala din pabulaklak kay Alaiza.. At si Bella at Christelle lang ang may bulaklak..

        Tito Norman should be able to enlighten us on this topic?

      • There is no clear confirmation on whether Alaiza is still a part of The Camp or not. But the hints (like the arrival PPE) should tell you something.

    • eh ano ngayon? Ikaw nga masyoho pa rin ang kiki after decades of using zonrox to disinfect your yucky puday

  6. I can’t wait for Rabiya and Jonas to prove me wrong .
    Smile posture body personality and the way she talks … all need improvement … a lot of it .

      • 4m , I hope so!!!! I still want a good show .. and that can only happen if Philippines makes it all the way to the end .

    • lola Fabie what do you mean – They can’t even make their protégés friendly to each other . What do you think , Flor? – Isssue ka ha, san mo napulot yan?

    • @ Fabian Reyes The Camp, if I understand correctly, has no actual physical structure yet of its own to literally house its trainees the way KF or A&Q does, and probably why ABC have not been seen together yet at one session… 🙂

      • Thank you Tita Flor, @lola Fabie – kaya tayo nagiging nega mga assumtions mo hindi agad friendly.

  7. dyusko mga vekla nag wawarla eh one week in to Rabiya’s reign….. Wala pa ngang date ang MU eh gustong laging nakapeak ang candidata niley… Maghuminay huminay kayong mya veks eh COVID is still here….

  8. Diba sir norman magaling daw ito mag make up sa sarili nya? the one we saw during prelim interview looks pang MU na ang laban. sana ganon ulit kaganda styling at make up nya sa CD MU prelim interview. also the outfit. her final look was so good. ung hair lang d masyado ayos which is evident na wala syang glam team inside. kung meron man e d sana mas naayos buhok nya kesa sa ginawa nya. but her hairstylek that night still worked and suits for her. My only concern right now is her body. patabain sya ng husto with matching gym 3 times a week. hope may widen pa ung shoulder and ung boobs part nya magkalaman pa. i trust more on the process of her pasarela training since may k naman si rabiya. to be honest medyo rare din naman ung pinakita nya that night. na kahit ganon ang katawan. and with that face. nakuha nyang mag perform ng ganong kaganda kahit hinde mu powerful. tipong mabibigyan mo pa din sya ng highscore. so kung nagawa nya yon. trust that she can do more on MU both prelim and finals.

    • It’s not Rabiya’s fault. It is the MUP’s stylist fault….Baka nangagapa pa!!!

      • @angela visser yes i know its her personal stylist who made this look. what im trying to say is since magaling sya mag make up so sana sya nalang gumalaw sa face nya so ung buhok nalang ang ipapagalaw sa stylist. but i called this looks low key muna. but yes agree she deserved a best look anu mang event pa yan. but at least maganda pa din naman. doon lang ako hinde agree sa suot nya.

    • I don’t think anyone has a problem with her make-up…

      This issue here are the clothes she’s wearing….
      She needs to look more fashionable…
      We need a cosmopolitan trendsetter…
      Someone who could standout among towering glamazons… a total headturner in a good way!

      • Kaya nga it’s the the faul of MUP Stylist. Sino ba stylist ng MUP, sarap i-bashhhhh kaines kasi

  9. Rabiya is not taller than 5’6″ I think.
    I just can’t imagine she is standing besides those candidates who are 5’9″ , 5’10”. Nung time ni Janine Tugonon 5’8″, and si Miss USA looked short and she is 5’7″.

  10. dami nyo kuda
    wala naman kayo naiambag na pera para kay rabiya
    bakit naman kayo papakinggan?
    jusko hayaan nyo mga nakapaligid sa kanya
    sila ang may naiambag

    enjoy and support our queens
    yan pwedeng pwede gawin ng lahat

    • Kembular because we are fans, we may have differences, but you cannot pretend or be blinded that thee is something wrong. Kahit nega ilang mga fans, gusto pa rin nilang manalo si Rabiya because she is wearing Philippines sash. It really depends on how MUP and her take the criticism. Sabi nya nga may mas malaki pa syang pagsubok na pagdadaanan. So eto na yun, start na,

    • @kembular constructive criticism po mga Yan. It’s for rabiya own good. Check mo yun pinasuot sa kanya sa tondo. Pang J’s prom
      pang sagala na Hindi Reyna Elena. Sino ba stylist na dinaig pa ang magic baul madame. Mup Yan tapos papasuot Ng pang extra level na sagala
      Ms pH nga Yan dapat maayos damit not necessarily costly

    • @Kembular…

      What kind of support ba gusto mo for RABIYA?
      “BLIND SUPPORT”??? Yung may nakikita ka ng mali e todo tango ka nalang sa mga maling nagaganap?! Emperor’s new clothes ba dapat ang peg?!

      FYI, I have been criticizing PIA for example yearly since her day 1 in pageantry.. from her body to her make-up.. I don’t think Pia would have mastered drawing her eyebrows if nobody mentioned na yung kilay nya e minsan kamukha ni Ernie o Bert ng Sesame street! And guess what, Pia improved herself… she took make-up workshops seriously upto the point that she mastered drawing that golden spiral and even became a newspaper columnist for make-up. I don’t think she would have won Miss Universe without that kind of “BASHING” AKA ” CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM” from her LOYAL fans! 😁🙄

  11. I agree… I also noticed that Rabiya’s gowns are always like a “been there done that” moment… even her prelims white gown was like a down-graded combo version of Miss Universe Thailand & Miss Universe USA 2015…. while her finals gown was a full red version of Miss Grand Venezuela 2017 and Miss International 2017 from Indonesia… her stylists desserve a couple of heavy slaps on the face….

    IMO for the MU finals, she should wear a very modern silhouete with geometric cuts, a shimering fabric and very minimal embelishments… and if possible, a nod to our classic Filipiniana, by using small shimery translucent butterfly sleeves perhaps simillar to the powder-blue Leo Almodal gown worn by Megan Young as host of Miss World 2014… It would be a great contrast if for her national costume, she wears a more polished but equally embelished & voluminous version of the traje de mestiza gown worn by Pura Villanueva-Kalaw, a Filipina feminist, journalist, writer and 1st “Queen of Manila Carnilval”…

      • @Ryan

        LOL Why so butt hurt? ikaw ba stylist nya? 😆
        I agree, it’s very hard to swallow the truth…

        FYI teh, this is a beauty competition…
        Pag maganda, maganda talaga…
        Pag panget, panget talaga…
        Kung mababa standards mo e dun ka sa barangay pageant lumaban, wag sa Miss Universe… 🙄
        MEDIOCRE WOULD NEVER MAKE THE CUT!

    • @ Closer2Fame Not so voluminous so she isn’t swallowed up by her dress, no? Bear in mind she is on the petite side. Though yes, Filipinas in “those days” weren’t so willowy, either….

      “Polished” is the word I agree with in your brief. It takes a seasoned and insightful hand-&-eye to pull that off.

      But more, I hope the NatCos can be of such quality as to be worthy of permanent display as an example of master workmanship and critical taste. At Museo Iloilo, perhaps. 🙂

      • @Flor

        Exactly! You pulled the right words out of my head… Voluminous but of course, not too much… We need just the right amount of Volume to create a huge memorable impact.. & Possibly a well hidden tastefull but literally flashyreveal… I prefer a traje de Mestiza than her Ati-atihan costume…. We don’t need a primitive version of another carnavale costume… and I hope her costume would have actual pearls…

        But what if she wears this voluminous literally frumpy traje de mestiza outfit with a well hidden reveal…. something that opens up showing a flashy glitery shimering tribal outfit with matching colorful linning and sculptured platform heels?..

      • @ Closer2Fame I like-y the sculptured platform heels.

        My mother had a pair of “bakya” with a “balay kubo” chiseled onto the heel.

        Also like-y your idea of transformation-with-a-flick-of-a-switch. From Colonial to Pre-Colonial, priestess to she-warrior, career girl to attentive mother, etc. and all it connotes. Very relevant! After all, who doesn’t multi-task nowadays? 🙂

      • @Flor

        True! I love that.. Priestess as in Maria Clara was sent to the nunnery but she fought against society’s opression, owned her sexuality with that sexy Babaylan tribal outfit… very empowered modern woman! YOW A GENIUS!

  12. Kamukha ni Rabiya c Miss Spain 1999 sa photo na yan🙂
    Dami nyang kamukha depende sa Make up.
    Medyo more conviction and add more speed pa sa speaking skills nya at convinced na c Mama Paula to give the crown 👍
    Good luck 🙂

    • Paul, someone else is using my name … though I still strongly believe that the Philippines will not win this yr

    • Ang dami mong drama na ginagaya ka. Iisa ka lang naman na paul dito. Wala namang nag-iimpostor sa yo. Ahhh… amoy ko ikaw ang impostor ko! Huli ka bayot! 🧐

      • @ Pierro Rocco Oh, my… Now, I’m REALLY confused… 😦

        Is @ Paul Truliling the one who stole @ Fabian Reyes’ identity?

        Guys, try niyo rin du’n sa kabila’ng blog. Baka doon na’tin mapagtanto who is who. 🙂

    • ang masyoho ang puday dapat mag ingat. wala akong sinasanto. pasagasaan ko sa pison ang echoserang chimp na yan para hindi na makapaghasik ng lagim sa whole wild wide universe!

    • ang masyoho ang puday dapat mag ingat. wala akong sinasanto. pasagasaan ko sa pison ang echoserang chimp na yan para hindi na makapaghasik ng lagim sa whole wild wide universe!

    • @Paul. Mas TARANTADO ka. Baklang iskwater ang bunga hindi kita uurungan. You are nothing but a shit. Huli ka na na napakaraming username na ginagamit mo pala kaya pati usename ko inaangkin mo. Makuntento ka sa username mo talaga Paul garbage. BOBO! Ano ka entitled? Lahat ng pangalan pwede mong gamitin? Basurang bakla! Kala mo lahat kaya mo dito. Estupidang bayot!

      • @Paulina. Of course hindi ako. Bukelya na 1 baks dyan. Kung ano-ano username na ginagamit. For evil purposes? Para magtaray, manlait, mambola, magbait-baitan at kung anu-ano pa? Fetish? Fantasy? He is sick. May sakit ka sa utak yang si baks. Hindi nya ko mapapaikot sa kalokohan nya. Sabihin nya lang kung type nya username ko at hahayaan ko na lang syang gamitin yun sa panggagago nya. But Asmodeus is the right username for him. Devil! Crazy faggot sya.

  13. Is she 5’7 or 5’8 ? Likely shorter … definitely the gown design should be focused on making her look tall on stage and on camera , something like the gown of Vega in MU2014 , simple yet slick and statuesque

    • Parang hindi magaling ang inhouse stylist ng MUP. I dunno parang nag shishine sya nung candidate but now as winner parang the styling need to be improved AsAP

      • Maybe its strategy? Underwhelming muna para save the best looks for Miss U competition mismo..

  14. Mas okay pa styling ni Rabiya nung candidate pa sya. Siya lang yung reigning queen na waley ang styling after nanalo. Oi MUP dress her like a queen naman!

    • I also noticed it dear. He is better off as candidate…..saw some pics of her and her court, Michelle Gumabao was the first one i noticed, not because she’s borta, but her X factor. May reaction nasaan ang winner? Probably naka mask sila, hindi ko makita ang nose.

  15. Saw Rabiya’s nose when she was high school. Looks like she is not a natural beauty after all. Just me saying.

      • Oh perhaps, Ill teach you some critical thinking 101. Hahaha…Any final question?

      • Truth hurts Smooth Bae! Naalala ko sabi ni Cristy Fermin advuce sa mga nagpaparetoke make sure your all your old photos were deleted. Well…wala talagang lihim na hindi nabubunyag. Hahaha…

    • We already live in a society that embraces beauty in all walks of life. Natural or surgically-enhanced, they are all beautiful. If you can’t be open-minded about it then that’s your choice to make. Maybe you need to come out of your cave sometimes and see that the world is already changing its standards of beauty.

      Perhaps you’re the ones who needs surgery to aesthetically improve your attitude and way of thinking.

      And that’s just me saying.

    • Yup just you crazy old fashioned bitter queen Fabbie ! FYI nose and facial features can change as we age . You should know. Also you’re the one who champions palakol veneers and boob jobs . So you have no credibility ! Are we surprised ? Everyone here knows your true colors. Support the queen !

    • Dear Fabian; not that plastic surgery matters really, pero Michelle tweaked her nose as well. See videos of her when she joined PBB.

      Just saying.

      PS: Tagalllllllll mo na rito sa Normannorman, wala ka pang na pre-predict na tama. And the worse thing is when you continue to defend your moot predictions beyond rhyme, reason and common sense just to get the last word. You don’t really care about these queens- you only care about yourself and your opinions which sad to say, are as futile and pointless as Sandra Lemonon’s stupid accusations.

      That’s all.

      • @Frankie – Why so affected? Even me, i really feel Michelle “borta” Gumabao deserved the crown. So respect!!!

  16. If I’m Michelle, I would have acknowledged my bashers for calling me “Borta” weeks before the finals.. If I were her, I would see it as a compliment, consider it as an opportunity to own that term and encourage everyone to be the same… Why should we limit ourselves by the the gender constructs of society?! She is beautiful because she is fit and healthy…. You can be muscular and feminine at the same time… If she have done that then she has proven that she is confidently beautifull with a heart.

    Btw, Rabiya looks like Shamcey and Venus had a baby..

  17. Pls concentrate on rabiya’s body areas to tone . Malapit na po mu at tigilan nyo damitan Ng pang prom si rabiya

  18. Anong klaseng, hair, make-up, and styling ba tong ginagawa kay Rabiya after she was crowned MUP? Ginagawang experiment yung mga exposures nya, pwede namang mag-experiment sa looks nya off-cam.
