  1. Mario Lopez hasn’t really aged that much when he hosted in 2007, ’09, and ’10.

  2. Mario is a good call for a host especially in a heavily-Latino state like Florida.

    I do miss the classic caucasian host back in the days. My favorite is the host in 1998 when Miriam competed. Manly and yet gentlemanly.

  3. In the USA, Black and Latinos are being pitted against each other hence no surprise that they chose a Latino host for a Latino dominated state… I also have a feeling that the Top20 would be domimated by Latinas… and the Philippines could possibly be the only Asian reaching the Top5.. Sorry Indonesia and Thailand. A Latina could possibly win this year… I wonder who?

    • @ Closer2Fame I am feeling NEITHER Gama nor Soto.

      I am not convinced the latter is better than Anderson-Berios. And the former winning now with her country gripped in SARS0CoV2 mayhem might send the wrong signal.

      I really dig the Teutonic splendors of Akselrad and Villasmil. But the former’s having contracted the virus might encounter resistance at USA ports?… And how do expat Venezolanos in Florida feel about this whole thing (the MU pageant) anyway?

      Is Symone-Williams a VAST UPGRADE to the ‘holy trinity’ of Bennett-Fennell-Phillipps? I know utterly nothing of Curacao; magaling/malakas daw… 🙂

      In hindsight, EL Salvador is too cute-y. Colombia is STILL BLAH AFTER THE MAGNIFICENT LGO-2017. Meza? So what if she’s a MW Finalist? Is she better than Aragon? Denisse Franco is my MUM(exico) archetype (after Lupita Jones, of course). Toscano was OK at MI, of course…

      Do you know kung tutuloy si Ivana Batchelor? Did she sign a contract with Angkol? Is SamBer home?

      • @Flor, have you seen the publicity photo of Mexico where she is dressed like a hoochie?

        A downgrade from her virginal image at Miss World where she held hands with Julia Morley and singing kumbaya with the winners and the also rans

    • @ Closer2Fame (cont.) So, yeah. It boils down to either Peru or Chile. An ‘Andes’ reina! 🙂

      I don’t think either country has major immigration issues with the USA. And if I’m not mistaken, Christy Turlington has Peruvian extraction…

      Chile looks a bit like DLNP, daw… If she wins, it will be thirty-four (34) years after Boloccos’ 1987 coronation in Singapore. Peru, of course, is “P-group” and lately has done well at MU.

      (I think I’ll go with Chile… For now.)

      • @Flor

        Too early to tell…

        Anyway, Christy Turlington’s mother is from El Salvador….

  4. Buti naman MU didn’t care to renew Steve’s contract (after 5 years) to host again. Pang game show lang talaga si Steve. Mario is more professional when it comes to pageant hosting. It’s his forté.

      • @ Chuva Chuhu Costa Rica, this December? He took ‘Spring Break’ from MU hosting duties, pala.

  5. Yes, Mario Lopez is love! I’ve seen him at the Burbank airport a couple of times in the late 90s and I was amazed on how friendly he was. I said hello and he smiled back at me!! Those huge dimples when he smiles was a sigh to see. He looks great on TV but looks better in person!!! I was disappointed though when he cheated on his first wife who was a former Miss USA. So I stopped caring for him.

  6. Mario Lopez is love! I known about him since the showbiz news E!

    Olivia is still beautiful.

      • @ Bella Hunny, sa GANDA at ALTA mo, that creep is just loose change. 🙂

        I’ve always been suspicious of these ‘feeling-God’s-gift-to-women’ sila. Na okay lang na mabilis ang turn over, anyway no woman in her right mind would refuse someone like him. 😦

        You were wise to stop caring for him. After all, like everyone else, he has germs in his gut.

        (I will factor out what could have possibly been shortcomings on the part of the wife. After all, unions are two-way streets. But she’s not the one on trial here; Mario is.)

  7. Patay sa FYI. The last Miss USA production was the worst I’ve seen in a very long time, so my expectations are low for the MU telecast. I only hope the producers learned a thing or two since then.

  8. The pandemic ultimately caused the ouster of Steve Harvey which most think should have happened after the disaster of 2015 … The two above are veteran MU hosts , so I expect that they will do a great job ; also I expect there will be backstage commentators just like in last year’s MUSA … not Lu Siera !
