  1. She is naturally beautiful… Her beauty enhancement just made her look very awkward and weird right in our very eyes…lesson learned, natural beauty prevails than beauty-camp-standard-enhanced look

  2. Disappointed ako sa gown nya may pa opulence opulence pa hindi naman maganda. Plus yung hair juice mio kapana hunan pa ni gabriela silang😂 i love Rabiya sa swimsuit nag exude sya ng beauty in fairness 😀 sa totoo lang bakit sa dami dami nating mga designer wala parin makakuha ng magic. Dapat kasi mag pa contest si philippines ng gown making lol tapos wala nang secret secret pa . Days pa ni madam yan . Show it agad para makita ng mga tao kung pangit para ma bash kaagad. Dapat isa sa training nila yung ibabad sila sa pool puno ng mga ahas scorpion para mawala yung kaba😂 anywaysssss sana yung interview nya eh maganda . I was told before na yung prelims hindi lang top 21 yung importante dito . Dapat sa Prelims palang ur already eyeing sa top ten iklabo lang nila na from top 21 back to zero hindi po sa Prelims top pick na nila yung top ten then from there labanan na. Kaya kung hindi ka nag perform ng maganda ligwak kana even maganda performance mo sa finals.

  3. I cant get over those bulgarian lips, those could easily get stuck on a wall when wet💪🖖💋

  4. PR Thailand Iceland Nepal Romania Czech Republic
    Mexico Peru Brazil Argentina China
    Indonesia Vietnam Mayanmar

    I was really disappointed in Peru Curaçao and Mexico .. and Philippines

  5. The gown naman is beautiful, the cut and the color, but it is not for Rabiya. The hairstyle made her a tita not a queen. Even her stance is not the same as her MUP nagkakaroon sya ng self doubt hindi confident.Siguro kung naka-bun sya like what she sported ala Mega Young or channel a Lara Dutta 2.O energy it might have worked. Akala ko ba pinag aralan nyo Jonas? If it is anybody’s fault again, it is not Rabiya or Furne but the MUP. Hoy, Jonas keep the same Rabiya in MUP nalang and the same red gown na may cape. The styling made her a fat, tita person….hoy baguhin nyo yan ASAP!!!!

  6. Rabiya will be in top 5 but I could see na hindi sya 100 percent
    Last 2 standing Thailand and Puerto Rico
    I heard fr a pinoy in Florida that Ayu was a heavy favorite

  7. Her swimsuit was great!! But the evening gown was underwelming!! I was epecting more from Furne!! Not as sexy and the styling was off!! How could Jomas miss this one!!

  8. Per my initial survey on Pinoy pageant fans’ comments, it seems like they are not happy with Rabiya’s performance. For the meantime, I keep my assessment about the same until Tito Norms posts anew about the Preliminary Competition of the 69th Miss Universe awhile ago.

    Tito Norms, my hunch is that your energy and excitement ran low after seeing Rabiya’s performance. You still haven’t posted a fresh topic about the preliminary event!

    That’s all.

  9. This headpiece would have made a significant difference with the her NatCos. It’s way better than the original headpiece which made the costume too literal in its concept – which was already literal 😬 My question is why was it only requested two weeks before the Prelims. 🤔🤔🤔

  10. RABIYA LOOKS FAT AND NOT TONED IN MOTION, IN HER YELLOW GOWN, SHE REMINDS ME OF MJ LASTIMOSA PRESENTATION…THAT YELLOW GOWN MADE HER LOOK FAT…THE SILICONE BOOBS CANNOT BREATHE ANYMORE,,, NAIPIT MASYADO…AND THAT TITA HAIRSYLE IS JUST HORRIBLE.

    • Worse than MJ Lastimosa atleast MJ Lastimosa’s books were real

  11. REAL BEAUTIES ON THIS BATCH
    CURACAO
    JAMAICA
    CZECH REPUBLIC
    ROMANIA
    AND I LOVE COSTA RICA

  12. This batch is weak. They should’ve lowered the first cut to Top 15.

    • Agreed. Winner is one among Mexico or Peru or Jamaica or Nepal or Romania

  13. Honestly, Rabiya had a below average overall performance.
    Swimsuit – Okay. Boobs peeking out bad.
    Evening Gown – Horrible. Loud Colour, Pageant party hairstyle, awkward expression. Bad performance.
    If Rabiya had a weak sash like say Panama, she will surely clap. But as she is Miss Philippines, we will see her in TOP 21. Still for safety, please vote for Rabiya on MU App. Hope she changes her styling and attitude in finale. No more pageant patty please.

  14. MISS CZECH REPUBLIC AND ROMANIA ARE WEARING MICHAEL CINCO GOWN

  15. Guys, BUSY na si Ungkol. DAMI siya’ng guestings na nakapila… IN DEMAND. 🙂

    Which means he most probably is DEEP into drafting his Prediction, kasi inevitable na tanungin siya ng mga hosts niya.

    For myself, I’m happy the silver ‘Jehza’ took center stage. Baka sa Finals, ‘di na i-require.

    I’ll keep this short and scathing.

    If the Americas, Jamaica. If Asia-Pacific & Africa, Nepal. If Europe, Romania.

    Czechia (Klara Vavruskova) is the FACE of MU 2020! MORE IMPORTANTLY, SHE WILL BE THE JB* AMBASSADOR. NO FASHION/ACCESSORY BRAND TURNS DOWN A GREAT BEAUTY.

    Malaysia will be the ‘come-from-nowhere’ in the 21-Pick.

    Body? Wala’ng standout this year.

    Ate Rab WILL be Best in 2nd RU.

    It will be a battle for 1st RU – Sud Afrika, Thailand, Puerto Rico, Peru, and Curacao. This last one, the Horse Whisperer, will unite me at last in TRINITY with @ paul & @ Fabian Reyes; she will be like Alexandra Haenggi in MUT 2020 – the proverbial ‘odd one out’ in the Court of heavy favorites.

  16. I love the color of the gown. Medyo d lng ako satisfied kasi parang nagkulang kasi hindi lumabas ang curve ng katawan ni ibyang. Yung boobs parang ipit na ipit nagmukha tuloy flat chested. Sana they added a little more details and illusion para hindi mukhang straight body si ibyang. Its just my opinion.. yun lng po ang npansin ko.

  17. Stunning Rabiya is assured of top 21 placement with her winning performances in the prelims.

    REPOST: “The gown is elegantly encrusted with Citrine Swarovski crystals on the bodice cascading to the hem and cape over alabaster Swarovski components, glass beads and paillettes. The dramatic and fitted silhouette adds interest and pizzazz on its own. The cape added royalty to the gown, and its beadwork was inspired by the radiance of the Philippine sun which symbolizes positivity and optimism. A hope for a new tomorrow, a world with endless beauty and happiness.”

    • That was a Furne Amato design?

      Quite dissapointed….
      Expensive materials but looks cheap…
      I’ve seen better looking gowns at Barangay Pageants..
      Nothing spectacular or innovative….
      I’m bored.

  18. I just watched the prelims. I obviously want the best for Rabiya and I want our country to win or place high this year but I have a feeling Rabiya is getting eaten alive by the pressure. She started off so strong when she landed in Miami but it seems like her energy has been slowly dropping. Not sure if her performance tonight has been affected by the criticism she faced after the nat cos competition.

    However, I think she looked really wonderful sa swimsuit. Ganda ng styling and her body is toned!!! Such a drastic body transformation! Her curves got me shook. I really loved her walk. Reminded me of Pia. But also cant help but notice ang boobs ni ibyang. Nagparetoke ba sya?

    I think her evening gown performance wasn’t as strong as her SS. LOVED THE COLOR. Up close, ang ganda ng details. However, her styling could’ve been better. Hindi nya bagay ung hairstyle. It reminded me Ara’s tita hairstyle sa EG prelims nya. I was expecting her to leave the middle part wavy hair. Or a sleek bun? Pero I guess it’s hard to transition from the wavy hair to a bun.

    I do think that Rabiya has done enough to make it top 21. But im hoping her team realizes what final touches they need to make for finals night. Feeling ko maypasabog sa finals.

    Ibyang’s biggest competitors are India, South Africa, Puerto Rico, Peru, Jamaica and Nepal.

  19. In 2017, Ms. South Africa fell short of our expectations too during the preliminaries, too pageant patty, poor styling and bad choice of gown. But come finals night, she shined the most and won the crown.

    I hope the stars align on Rabiya’ s favor come finals night. Remember, she already has 1 M stars in IG.

  20. I guess our queen Rabina worked so hard and her performance at the swimsuit and long gown competitions are superb. Keep smiling, keep shining and keep hoping. Don’t let detractors discourage you to get the crown.

  21. I’m still confident that Rabiya would reach the TOP 5.. but she needs a homerun answer for her to win 1st RUp…. most possible placement for her is 2nd RUP..
    Only way she could win this is if Puerto Rico and Thailand fumbles in the final Q&A which is most unlikely…

    • I agree. Btw, with 1 M followers in IG, I think she will add premium to the Miss Universe Brand.

      • Yes, but her wearing Yellow divided our people… She should have worn something white, silver or neutral that would not give-away her political inclinations …. tsk tsk…. 🤨

      • @Closer2Fame

        DDS Mentality? Kung kumain ka ng saging dilawan ka na kasi yellow? Ganun ba yun? Kinapos sa utak.

      • She should have worn red, with stars.

        That would be very symbolic noh.

      • @Anonymous

        I’m just describing how the people reacted…
        🙄

      • Kailangan talaga haluan ng politika basta dilaw… and anyway, eh ano kung dilaw!!?? Utak DDS na tabogo.. PWE!!! 😒🤨😠

      • Kailangan talaga lagyan ng pulitika pag dilaw… eh ano kung dilaw??! Typical utak ng DDS… ☹😠🤢

  22. The gown is okay. But remember Pia’s prelim gown, its too early to judge. May finals pa.

  23. Finished watching the prelims.
    Good luck.
    She was stunning during MUP finals, especially during MUP swimsuit finals, what happened?
    Her body back then was already fine.
    Crossing my fingers she makes, she at least makes it sa evening gown finals ng MU.
    I wanna see Ms PH wearing her finals gown.

    • Agree. She looks tired and unhappy. It might be because of the bashings towards the NatCos wherein she even apologized. So sad that some fans are like that.
      Unfortunately, I did not see the “light” on her face, the one that I saw on Pia’s face when she won.
      Hope this will change during the finals.

    • It’s hard not to love Rabiya and root for her no matter what. She is very beautiful, intelligent and most of all, a Filipina. But let’s face it. Something was off in her prelims performance. It was not as stunning as we have been led to expect. The SS was good but the evening gown was underwhelming. The gown was radiant and its cape/train was cool. But it did not flatter her body. Her hairstyle was dated. Her expression hovered between a half smile and what was that – some hurt or pain? Come on Rabiya, a queen rises above all hurts and shines. You know that.

      Let’s just hope she makes it through the first cut and then she’ll lay it all there on the stage in a real fight to the end. If the voting is not yet closed we should vote to seal the placement, even though I’m still confident she will make it to the top 21. If she makes it to the Top 10, then we know her interview was tops. Then she could take it from there.

      Go Rabiya! We’re behind you.

  24. Rabiya did well. Very queenly, even though she appeared tired. Hope she gets enough rest before the finals!

  26. This reminds me of Janine Tugonon’s evening gown. Not appealing at all

    • I think more of MJ’s gown. For me, Janine’s gown was way better than Rabiya’s because the former carried it with elan.

  27. I think Rabiya did enough to crack the top 20 but I hope this is not unconcious bias.

    Top performers for me are Brazil, Colombia, Nicaragua, Nepal, Puerto Rico, Thailand.

  28. Eyes on the prize !

  31. After prelims, Nepal just zoomed to the top of my list.
    That girl oozes with sex appeal and confidence.

    I just dropped Australia from my list. Iceland is overrated.
    After the gown segment, I’d replaced India with Indonesia

    While Rabiya was at her best elements during the swinsuit rounds, I’m not sure if I like her in the gown segment. The gown made her look heavy not to mention that her hairstyle does not suit her facial features.

    Since the top 21 will compete in swinsuit, Rabiya is guarantees a top 10 placements. Hope her gown in the finals has a different silhouette.
    That’s all.

    • Mexico is also at the top of my list.
      Colombia is a revelation tonight.

      So disappointed with the overall prelims presentatiom including Demi and Zozi’s hosting skills. They kept on stuttering. The camera and the hosts often times do not sync.
      Even MGI prelims is so much better. Come on MUO, you can do better.
      The show is no longer as enjoyable as before.
      Sorry for my rant😀

  34. My top 5 after the prelims (in alphabetical order): Canada, India, Jamaica, Nepal and Thailand. They clearly owned the stage and definitely stood out.

    As for Rabiya, she looked very pageant patty. I wish she sported the Megan Young look. There is nothing memorable about her look and performance. Best case scenario for her is Top 21.

    • Llamado si Canada since there is a Canadian judge pero kulang talaga sya sa ganda …
      But again Thailand is half-Canadian.. so sure Top 5 si Amanda….

      Lakas ni Puerto Rico sya Pinaka Llamado sa lahat…

      Iniiwasan ng spotlight mukha ni Rabiya for some reason… I dont know if this is strategy but her gown isnot flatering at all….

      Ganda ng gown ni Jamaica….

      Theres a black judge from Texas….
      Who would she favor?
      Jamaica? USA? Canada? Cameroon? Japan?

      Dami fans ni Mexico pero medyo nabawasan sa evening gown…

      • @ Closer2Fame 2nd RU – Puerto Rico, 1st RU – Thailand, & Jamaica crown is OK for you, po?

        Lakas maka-headwind ni PR. Pero NO, imo she CANNOT possibly be better than Madison Anderson-Berios and even get the back-to-back silver-medal. 😦

        Gurmeet said ‘lion’ daw? So, Jamaica… Uhhmmm, OK sige. Puwede na rin siguro. 🙂

      • Learn something new today by googling Pageant Patty. Sadly, I didn’t see the phenomenal woman in Rabiya during the prelims. She will only crack the Top 21 via popular vote.

  35. Long Gown – I am quite disappointed at the frontrunners. Di medyo stunning ang India, I don’t like the top of Thailand, medyo kulang din ang South Africa and di mananalo si Rabiya sa gown na yan. Best long gown for me are Peru and Nepal.

    Nevertheless, eto na ang top picks ko, over-all:

    Rank 1-6 (Just like QCBPI sa MUP + Alaiza, in alphabetical order)
    India
    Peru
    Philippines
    Puerto Rico
    South Africa
    Thailand

    Spoilers (7-8):
    Nepal
    Romania – very beautiful face pero kulang sa pasarela skills, nilalamon sya ng Latinas and Asians

    Others in Top 21 (in alphabetical order)
    Brazil
    Cameroon
    Colombia
    Curacao
    Dominican Republic
    Great Britain
    Jamaica
    Mexico
    Nicaragua
    Panama
    USA
    Venezuela
    Vietnam

    Sana may pasabog na gown si Rabiya sa finals. Kung wala, it would be India vs Peru.

    • Same feeling about thailand’s gown. Must be the bust part. Rabiya’s gown looked heavy, although I thought she lit up the stage with that color.

  36. Ok my TOP 21

  37. ANG CHAKA NGGOWN AT ANG HAIRSTYLE, PANG SAGALA….AT ANG BOOBS ANG TAAS TAAS,,,AT ANG TABA TABA PA….KAYA GUYS….ITODO NA ANG VOTING ….DAMING MAGANDA THIS BATCH….

    • impakta!… manahimik ka, hindi nakakatulong yang comment mo!

    • Hindi ka lang kontrabida, antagonia, impakta!!!!! Isa kang aswang na inggitera at bitteranang hitik ang onggit sa katawan!!!!! You don’t deserve a place on earth dahil isa kang peste na walang magawa!!!!!!!! You’re an ass-sucker bitch!!!!!

  38. After swimsuit, I think Top10 is quite easy for Rabiya. Medyo maraming generic faces sa batch na to.

  39. Have you seen Rabiya’s swimsuit prelims…she is really class. Walang pakulo.

    Laos is a surprise
    Myanmar, and
    Nepal

    Did Filipinos train them?

  40. Swimsuit – Si India ang pinakamahigpit na competitor ni Rabiya, not Thailand, not South Africa. May queenly aura siya.

  41. Mine is the 50th post. Let’s move on to the preliminary competition. Latinas will dominate the top 21 this year – Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Curacao, Peru, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Venezuela, etc. Asians around five to seven – Japan, India, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand.

  42. Kita nyo judges 2 Caribean…. 3 Americas…. Lllamado Puerto Rico… zuleyka Judge… .. OMG

    • Zuleyka will surely lower the scores of our delegate considering online news says she has issues with her partner’s ex wife who is our very own Ruffa Gutierrez.

      • beks, walang ganon. Di naman natin alam ang nasa isip ni Zuleyka and kung totoo man yang issue na yan dati eh siguro nakapag move on na siya. Paranoia is real. Bawal judgemental.

  43. We need to keep an eye on Kennedy Gasper from Isabela. He is the designer of Miss Cameroon’s NatCos. Very young but promising na. I have seen his designs. Yung Natcos ni Cameroon is actually one of my favorites alongside Peru and Ukraine.

  44. Rabiya is not to be blame. It is the org. Kalokang MUP. Talong talo ng Team 20 days. Busy kasi sa pag-train ng Nepal at Singapore at paghahanap ng endorsement deals. Napabayaan ang alaga. Jonas should moderate his greed.

      • Weak comm skills ???
        If Sam’s skills were bad , what would you call Rabiya’s????

      • @Fabian

        Good. Baka di ka brainy kaya di mo marealize na weak comm skills ni Sam. Di kaya ng capacity ng utak mo. xoxo

    • Bakit magaling ba si Rabiya sa Q and A dahil sa Team Ahas? Hahahaha. LOL. Own effort na lang talaga si Madam.

  45. Let’s move on, shall we? The natcos presentations have no bearing on candidates’ final scores, so although it is a visual event, it is really a non-event in terms of placements, okay? Miss Malaysia dragging an entire house as her “costume” won’t add a single point to her scores, neither will it subtract from her scores. The missing headpiece of Rabiya does not matter in the end, especially if she decided to not wear it because of fitting problems. She has that prerogative as the wearer!

  46. I saw the report of MJ Felipe,

    21 kg pala yung buong ensemble without the headpiece!

    Rabiya was able to execute well the costume. There are things that are out of her control!

    Hindi biro magbitbit ng ganyan kabigat at mag-stride ka sa stage!

    Kung si Karolina Kurkova nga na model na eh ingat na ingat pa sa paglalakad nung 2007 sa Victoria Secret dahil sa sobrang bigat nung wings si Rabiya pa kaya na walang ramp modeling experience!

    I’m still confident that she slayed the QnA round and I know she will be able to redeem herself in the Evening Gown and Swimsuit part!

    • We should have sent Hidilyn Diaz then…
      21kg is only the combined weight of her testicles…

  47. I simply don’t understand the hysterics and the theatrics over a national costume that was: (a) still a work-in-progress by its designer whose untimely passing away left the embellishments and finishing touches to another designer under severest time-pressure, and (b) to be presented in a show that has no bearing at all in the official scoring of the MU contest. So, where has this monday-morning-quarterbacking get all of us into? My friends in my adoptive country are shaking their heads in disbelief!

  48. Mukhang theme ng Philippine National Costume for 2020: Pakpak

    From Roxanne’s Malakas Maganda theme, to Samantha Eagle costume, now Rabiya’s VS inspired national costume

  49. I just totally wished she did not cry online as this could totally backfire on her as being emotionally weak. She could have cried with her roommate or her national director, but to broadcast that for all the world to see is just NOT good. I hope I am wrong. But yeah, it is a dog eat dog out there, and she should be strong enough to parry the blows. I hope she redeems herself and maybe have another broadcast saying she is only human and does feel hurt when people send uncalled for comments to her – but that she is strong enough to get over it.

    • “Crying is not a sign of weakness rather it’s a sign of strength. Only strong person will cry in front of others. Crying is being overcome with overwhelming emotion which can be joy, relief and sorrow. Never be ashamed of expressing emotions through tears.” Unknown Author

  50. I love Rabiya’s presentation! Period. Compared to Catriona’s in 2018, Rabiya is alot better.

    • Lol. Patulan kita Gaga. Catriona won the crown. Let’s see if Rabiya can at least match that.

    • LOL. Manalamin ka teh. Presentation wise, mas bongga si Cat. Visually, unang tingin mas okay ang kay Rabiya. But upon circumspection, mas detalyado, makahulugan at ka-aya2x sa mata ang LuzViMinda ni Cat. Wag niyong binabalqhura si THE Catriona Gray. She has already proven his worth as a person, an artist and creative. A visionary. Yang Team MUP ang sisihin niyo. Disorganized.

  51. Worried about Rabiya. Is she really a thinking queen. Ang daming pangyayari na mukhang hindi sya ang may gusto. Sana hindi tuluyang mabago ng pinili nyang direksyon ang buhay nya. Sana hindi sya tuluyang kainin ng sistema at makabalik pa sya sa dating Rabiya

  52. For a pageant-loving nation which has substantially got an indelible mark in Miss Universe, a little error committed by its MU representative during the pageant becomes unavoidably huge. This is the consequence of being a powerhouse country in Miss Universe and other pageants. Thus, we cannot blame our fellow Filipino pageant fans if they have become aggressively open about voicing out their disappointments on the mishap in Rabiya’s national costume presentation this day.

    Even Catriona Gray has trended this morning because of her unbiased list of her Best 6 in national costume, which some Pinoy fans did not sit well with. I hope Catriona should have learned from this. She should also be aware that she has become less popular in the beauty pageant community because of several issues she has had with others. I don’t know but I think these issues did not do good in her career.

    To the Team MUP, Rabiya’s minor trouble in her national costume is not a precedent. They are very much aware that such incident already happened in the past and may happen again in any instance in the future. They should accept their mistake, not be onion-skinned, and promise to be extra-careful next time. After all, it has become apparent that such incident only causes divisiveness to Pinoy pageant fans.

    Gays and girls, let us move on from this and support Rabiya tomorrow as she redeems herself and raises our flag in the preliminary competition of Miss Universe.

    That’s all.

    • “A little error commited by its MU representative”? Paki-explain kung bakit naging error eto ni Rabiya?

      • If you know how to read what I have written, you might probably realize that the phrase you have quoted is actually a general statement. On my third sentence in the first paragraph, I particularly emphasized “mishap” in Rabiya’s national costume.

        Reading comprehension, please. 🤔

    • Less popular? San mo nakuha impormasyong ito? Sa Team AhasAndKweens? Hahahahaha.

  53. sana kasi ang natcos ni mj na lang ginamit
    wala naman points ito

  54. I want “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion for the Swimsuit Competition and “Levitating” by Dua Lipa for Evening Gown. I said certified freak, seven days a week…

  55. gumagaling na rin talaga ang MUP org (with assist fromMUO) in drumming up noise. for all we know, this incident was just to gain attention and media mileage as it does now. if one just follow bits and pieces here and there, their finger print is just all over. nway, i find the head dress an unnecessary embellishment. it’s ok to have, it’s ok to dispenser all. . after all, the halasan creation does not go well with the VS inspo vibe.. it looks more of a mama mary head ornament… peace.

    • Alam mo naman ang pakulo ng mga kulang sa integrity. Kunwari sasali daw si Ahtisa. Deception ang master.

  56. Common guys this is just one part of the competitions at the pageant. Let us give our moral support to the Philippine Team, they are doing their best and effort to bring the crown back to the country. Let us also appreciate Tito Norman for giving us daily activities at the pageant. Miss Universe and other pageants will not be complete without Tito Norman’s blog. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas.

  57. Rabiya, wag kang iyak ng iyak. Don’t cry over spilled milk. Hindi phenomenal ang iyakin. Sana galingan mo nalang sa prelim and final competition which bears a lot of weight for you to be called the next Miss Universe.

  58. Sobrang naiinis ako sayo Sir Norman! I know it was unfair for Sir Manny Halasan but it was also unfair for Rabiya to be treated like this.

  59. Sir Norman Tinio, nakatulong pa ba ang pag-post mo ng would’ve been head piece?

    Filipino fans are TOXIC. Nakatikim lang ng 2 MU crowns sobrang gagaling na and are experts in everything.

    Rabiya was so stressed and tired. And yes, she’s so pressured to please all Filipino fans including those na sobrang taas ng taste.

    She delivered without the head piece. She was so beautiful and vibrant.

    You’re correct. Most of your readers are smart. Way too smart for their own good.

      • @ Chezka Nope, I’m here. Gud Sat AM. 🙂

        Na-stress ako, dear. Akala ko, sa LAZADA lang ipalalabas ‘yun’g Prelims. So ‘yun, morning at weekend chores muna drama ko. Ta’s, nakita ko landlord ko nanonood sa YouTube… I DROP EVERYTHING TO WATCH, which means I’ll have a full load later when it’s already quite hot. 😦

  60. You should know by now mga gays, gals and guys na ang chimpanzee aka Fabian Reyes ang pinakamaraming kuda sa simple mishap na ngyari sa natcos ni Queen Rabiya. I find no words in the dictionary to best describe someone who finds happiness in the misery of others. @Tita Norms, only you can stop me from hounding this bitchinang chimpanzee. I just can not allow her to lord over your blog and continuously malign our reps in the different beaucons. WALA SYANG KARAPATAN. ISA LANG SYANG BALAHURA AT KANALICIOUS NA CHIMPANZEE WHO DOES NOT DESERVE A PLACE IN OUR SOCIETY!!! TSUPIII BAKLANG CHIMPANZEE!!!!! AMBAHO BAHO MOOOOO!!!!

  61. I don’t understand the hate on Rabiya’s costume. I think it looks good. The way Rabiya presented it though is yes, like a VS model. The thing about national costume competition is that it’s a celebration of culture. Presenting the national costume in such a manner as a VS model doesn’t seem so fitting. But Rabiya seems to enjoy every bit of it which is good and exudes confidence albeit a little too much I think.

  62. My current TOP 21
    In random order:

    Philippines
    Puerto Rico
    Thailand
    Romania
    India

    Venezuela
    Costa Rica
    Jamaica
    Brazil
    Peru

    Indonesia
    Canada
    South Africa
    Nepal
    Czech Republic

    Colombia
    Nicaragua
    France
    Mexico
    Argentina

    Vietnam

      • In 2017, Miss South Africa, fell short of our expectations with her styling and evening gown. Come finals night, she shined as the brightest star and won the crown. I am confident Rabiya will make it to the Top 21. On the finals night, she will unleashed all that she’s got and win the crown.

  63. Rabiya’s natcos is more fabulous with the headpiece. Nevertheless, she did great with her presentation. It was playful, cute, and full of energy. No need for drama because it is very obvious that her costume is Philippine flag-inspired.
    How I wish her hairstyle in the lower photos will be the same hairstyle she will don during the swimsuit competetion

  64. I don’t know bakit di consideration ang bigat ng natcos. Di naman si Hidilyn Diaz ang contestant natin mga Bhie. Sana next time, safety ang main consideration. Risk yun pag sobrang bigat. Paano kung ma-injure at di na makarampa? I love the Natcos of Janine and Maxine. Elegant and very Pinoy. With that being said, I am still proud of Rabiya’s Natcos performance. Hindi biro ang 21 kilos. That’s half a sack of rice na.

  65. Wow. Ang ganda nga. Would have made a lot of difference. Minalas si Manny Malasan.

    Same feeling we had when the giant parol of Catriona didn’t light up. In short, it happens talaga. Murphy is everywhere. But then again, nakaka-hinayang lang talaga. it could have been avoided.

    BUT I AGREE with a comment na eto kasi napapala natin ng pa secret secret pa at pa last minute last minute pasa-vogue. Sabi nga, what is wrong ba with having the national costume shown days before? It didn’t diminish the beauty of the national costumes of Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam (minalas lang si Mali Sya, i mean Malaysia). Moreover,

    1) Expectations are unnecessarily built up or set high with all the teasings done.

    2) There would have been enough time for the candidate to practice. Bakit para bang naging after-thought na lang yung headdress?

    3) There was a big boo boo by someone who didn’t measure correctly or didn’t fit ahead of time cthat head dress. Parang napaka simple and basic and yet…

    4). And knowing that things can go wrong, ano ba naman na gumamit ng velcro material or garter, or helmet (lol) na lang. I am sure from afar, it will still look fabulous.

    Lessons learned.

    World Peace.

      • Amen too @ Thomas.. keeping the Natcos secret creates unnecessary hype.. people EXPECT and if the expectation is not met… BOOM!! Wala naman masama if it is revealed ahead of the Natcos competition, ganun din naman, if people are disatisfied, they will bash.. but perhaps the bashing will not be too severe compared to when a hype is created… naku naman, itigil na ang kalokohang secrecy… still Kudos to Rabiya for carrying, with grace, the heavy Natcos…

  66. Thanks to the ‘mishap’, the head piece has acquired its own L-E-G-E-N-D.

    Boss MH may have unwittingly created the one work that will put his name in the firmament.

    THIS SHOULD BE A PYRO-TECHNIQUE TO CLOSE 2021. One that will spew red and blue on opposite sides, with gold a few seconds later, higher up. 🙂

  67. Now I know why the natco last night seems to be missing something.
    This could have been fabulous. Don’t they have Rabiya’s measurement or at least made the headress adjustable by utilizing a malleable material.
    What a waste!
