  1. Tito Norman, 3days na tong post na to… wala pang bago?

    Extended daw ang application sa MUP sa July 15. I guess konti ang applicants. Wala na ngang height requirement di ba?
    Or kinukumbinsi pa siguro nila yung mga gusto nilang sumali.

    • @ miss tissa Kasi daw (as per reason given in the Flyer), the organization understands it takes time to work out the documentation… Think about that. Who would require such documentation that wasn’t possible to put out after all the time that has materialized since MUO announced the acceptance of applicants?

      🙂

      The subjects of a very recent post, I reckon.

      Also, take note it’s four (4) days after BBP 2021. May mag-cro-cross over kaya? Or, possible that some of those who bowed out for all sorts of reasons are, in your own words, ‘gusto nila’ng sumali’? If so, I have a few names in mind that I would not mind at all to give it a go. They’ve been given individual features in Norman’s Blog, at various times.

  2. What if lang naman… (Alam kong 99.99% impossible mangyari ito)

    BPCI Cluster: Miss Universe, Miss Supranational, Miss Grand International. Then appoint the runners-up to other pageants
    AV Cluster: Miss World, Miss International. Appoint the runners-up to other pageants too.

    Kasi ang hirap naman na sumali ka sa Bb Pilipinas, hoping to get the Bb Pilipinas International crown but you end up in “second place” so you get to be sent in Miss Grand International which is TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

    Or the other way around: You complete to be Miss World Philippines but you get sent to Miss Supranational.

    By “clustering”, you group similarly-themed pageants together.

    How I wish.

    • @ Alex2 Your BPCI cluster has what currently seem to be the three most expensive franchises right now. You surely heard that Mr. Itsaragrisil will implement a 2000 USD rate increase this year.

      Conversely, MI charges no joining fee, and I think I read somewhere that MW’s relatively low rates have assured annual attendance in excess of fifty (50) countries.

      Notice a trend? 🙂

      Either way, both companies have apparently sought to diversify their portfolio by having ‘something for everybody’, both high- and low-end (rate- and production-wise), which is good business sense.

      Sir Alex, keep an eye, po, for #10 Michelle Arceo. Dark horse material, could pull a surprise! She made an early impression, making the Top 10 of the Sports-Fitness fast track. Go watch the Artopian event coverage on the ‘heyadmg’ YouTube canale… Anne de Mesa, incredibly feminine!

  3. SUPER WEAK BATCH,,, I CAN SEE WE WILL CLAP IN MISS WORLD, KUNG SINO MANG ANG IPAPADALA SA KANILA…YUNG FRONTRUNNERS, MUKHANG MGA AUNTIE NA…

  4. Ano kaya nakita ng mga bakling kay Ganiel para ihype ng todo? Seriously? Hindi siya ganun kastriking. Sasabihin na naman prototype ni Hulya dahlil may dugong Indian? Eh napaakaprominent naman ng pinay features. Average lang naman ang face. Midget pa ang height, walang masyadong leeg, nanayin ang katawan at average lang ang comm skills. Tapos medyo thunders na. 26? Hindi bet ni Hulya mga ganitong edad na papanalunin sa MW sa totoo lang. Pinakamatandang Miss World na si Vanessa Ponce nung 2018 sa edad na 26. PINAKAMATANDA NA YUN. At nagiisa lang. Second oldest na ang edad na 24 sa mga MW winners. Mostly nasa 20-23 lang mga winners niya. Lalamunin lang si Ganiel sa MW. Sa height at sa comm skills.

    Si Kathleen Paton naman, maganda siya oo. Pero nerbyosa magsalita. Halata mong kabado. Dyosa sana ang face kaso off minsan magsalita. Magaling sa English pero hindi articulate sa pagdeliver ng thoughts. Pero mas ok na ito kesa naman kay Ganiel.

    Si Dindi since overaged na sa MWP title, Supra na lang siya eligible as the highest title for her. Medyo hindi ganun kabongga comm skills nito pero bawing bawi sa confidence gaya ni Mutya Datul. Bongga nag personality so sa tingin ko siya ang perfect fit for this title. Saka by August 1st magcocommence na yata Miss Supra kaya dapat siya talaga ipadala. Body ready, styling ready, ramp walk ready. Wardrobes na lang. Kakaloka talaga itong si ALV laging late magpapageant. Ano yan 1 week lang preparation ng Supra Philippines? O baka naman predetermined na ALV? Yung ready na ang SCHEGEN Visa?

    Si Emmanuelle honestly, okay din naman siya for MWP title. BETTER THAN the overhyped GANIEL. May talent si girl. Makuda. Kayang lamunin ng buo si Ganiel at Kathleen. Mukha ding sporty. Kaso lang yung katawan niya hindi ganun kaproportion. Kung si Ganiel walang leeg, si Emmanuelle naman parang sa unano ang braso. Ang iiksi tingnan lalo na kapag nakapose na siya ng pamewang. Pero keri na din naman. Kahit na din yung mga tattoo niya keri na din. Pwede pa ba patakpan yun? O permanent na? Medyo nakakaoff kasi sa ibang pageant fans. Saka baka hindi rin magustuhan masyado ni Hulya.

    • @ NAWAT GAFFUD Parang may nagsabi na dito sa blog before na ~overage na rin for MW si Vera… So, MW is like MI na preferred young-ish?

      Sa Poland, no? May delta variant du’n (I saw a map on TV, in a clip that mapped out the latest strains). Will Boss Arnold V have our bet vaccinated first? Pero ‘yun nga, may waiting period until the second jab kaya DAPAT NGAYON PA LANG, SILA’NG LAHAT… 🙂

      I saw on YouTube what appeared to be an Indonesian vlogger. Also likes Paton for MW. Vera for Supra (or was it ReinaHispanoAmerica?). Lewis for Eco-Teen. Ganiel for Eco, ‘ata… Or si Ganiel Supra niya? Partial siya sa halfies/mukha’ng ‘mestiza’. No Dindi. 😦

      SCHENGEN VISA na ‘yan… Naalala ko noon, ‘yun’g inaugural rep natin sa MisterS, first time ‘ata mag-Europe, kaya natagalan release ng VISA niya. Kaya ‘yun, late dumating… Pero Top 20 nemen.

  5. Ano to. Pagalingan ng paghawak ng malalaking ot*n😜Sinong pinakamagaling sa kanila😆 hihihihi 👅 Cherette Lungs 🤗

    • @ bong700 May beer na ganyan, no? Houten… Danish, ‘ata.

      It came out on FB as a parody of sorts. Like ‘Xanaol’ for ‘sana all’.

      🙂

  6. Yung totoo? Ano yung pose nila, parang kulang na lang sabitan ng basket o bayong. 😅

  7. Sa totoo lang naaawa na ako rito kay Rufa Nava. It seems she has NOT learned from her previous pageant experiences. Find ways how to look young. Right gown, right hairstyle, right make up. Everything has to be right.

  8. UNSOLICITED PIECES of ADVICE:

    1. Sa mga handler ni Dindi Pajares – PLEASE DO NOT MAKE HER EYES LOOK TOO CHINESE and VERY EXOTIC. Bigger eyes like that of Indians and many Latinas.

    2. Still the major concern (and hurdle) of Rufa Nava is HOW to LOOK YOUNG. PLEASE FIND WAYS.

    3. A leaner figure for Ganiel Krishnan because she looks BULKY (& of course short).

    • Beh, May mga pictorials si Dindi sa IG na heavy ang eyeliner kaya enlarge ang mata niya!

      With or without make up, we have to embrace her unique look! There’s something unique about her Oriental looks kaya papatok yan sa International Stage lalo na sa Poland wherein ang common na nakikita nila dun is blonde hair, blue eyes!

      Anyway, that pic above reminds me of her presence at the Board of Directors meeting of Philippine Airlines where she is standing at the back of Lucio Tan!

    • @ paul & @ ClaiRe IbbeTson I like her beach shot leading up to MWP. There, she was made up to look like Coco Araya Supapurk*. More Thai-ish, less Viet. 🙂

      BASTA, ang aalalahanin, Jihane and Benjarat will set the pace for ASEAN at Supra this year. Whoever Mr. Vegafria sends MUST know how to outdo both.

      * – Hope I got her name right this time. My apologies in advance if still I did not…

      (I’m thinking frizzy hair, a’ la ‘Maria Mercedez’ x Intan Aletrino. What do you think?)

      • (Cont.)

        Just basing on this photo, I won’t mind at all if Pajares gets the Puerto Rico mission. 🙂

        Am now getting a sense that just maybe de Mesa while extremely pretty in Pinoy eyes will fall short in foreign eyes. In other words, over-hyped… 😦

        From the Navy Reservist I’m getting Mafae Yunon vibe. As Navy, I assume she’s a strong swimmer. That would have made for a nice BWAP – teaching folks who didn’t grow up beside a body of water how to swim PROPERLY!

        Basta, for MW this year, ang references ko sina Shudu at Carla Yules.

        For Supra, I REALLY like ‘yun’g tindig ni Tarrayo and I don’t mind at all that she gets little, if any, Press. Tama ‘yan! Para silent killer… A chance for KF to vindicate itself after Resham’s tepid job.

      • (Cont.1)

        Despite the obviously VERY short prep time, I think an extensive OOTD arsenal is unnecessary in Poland owing to the liberal Europe mindset and anyway with SARS-CoV2 restrictions in place I think an extensive luggage is highly inconvenient if not totally frowned upon there atm… But yeah, it’s summer. And that means L-I-G-H-T/airy/breezy/cool garments and pieces. 🙂

        For Supra, neutral/metallic or even white evening dress seems the norm. They’re not into COLOR the way we see it at MU… Maybe Europeans don’t think COLOR is sophisticated?…

        Even a simple-yet-smart NatCos is appreciated! Recall Janick’s ‘hummingbird’? SWEET. In contrast, the profound headpiece of Resham was all but lost… Europeans don’t take pageantry as seriously as we do. For them, it is first and foremost FUN. And in summertime, you have FUN.

      • (Cont.2)

        De Mesa is a Michelle Gumabao clone!!!

        Look closely. It requires not a lot of imagination-stretching. 🙂

        Kaya pala gusto’ng-gusto siya ni Ungkol Tinio. Recall he placed Mitch on top in his MUP 2020 Final Pick…

        ALAM NA NATIN ANG PEG NI NORMAN TINIO. What is ‘needed’ para masungkit ang kanya’ng matamis na endorsement… Parang eleksiyon lang. Once you get the support of influencers, G.

      • (Cont.3)

        Maganda (even) from a distance ‘yun’g between 4 who seems to be Lewis and 31 na si Pangindian. Hawig ni Fitriana! Sino siya?

        Parang gusto ko’ng ipadala si Ganiel sa RHA… I had Riana in mind initially, but lined up like this it’s clear madali siya’ng masapawan facially.

        MAGANDA mag-‘mata’ si Krishnan! Though on the heavy-handed side, it doesn’t come at you with a punch the way Anne does it… And as we see, Pajares can eclipse Mr. Norman’s ‘manok’ easy.

        Perez looks like she could be Cebu’s rep to MsChinatownPhl… Boy Blog, may pageant sila this year, po? 🙂

      • (Cont.4)

        That said, I shall revise my Picks as such. What COULD change this again is Beach Body*. 🙂

        MWP > Pajares
        SupraFilipinas > Tarrayo
        EcoFilipinas > Perez
        EcoTeenFilipinas > Tempra (by virtue alone of being a regional titlist, she trumps the other teens)
        ReinaHispanoFilipinas > Krishnan
        Multinational > de Mesa
        Lingkungan Filipinas > Campbell
        Pariwisata Filipinas > Vera
        Puteri Primera > Famorcan
        Puteri Segunda > Lewis

        * – which, if uncontested, should be OWNED by Pangindian, whom I wanted for CTS… Bosing T, may CTS din ba this year, po?

  9. CEO looks like Rian Pangilinan. Cute. 🙂

    The guy on the… right (Obnial or Encallado?)… gives Sam Versoza vibe. Also cute. 🙂

    Llegado is seated. She is the company’s muse, Blogger Dude? 🙂

    Kumusta po si Mario Garcia? CUTE pa rin? 🙂

    SMILEY Thursday to all. Don’t forget to… register for the 2022 season. No last-minute, OK? Para socially distant pa rin tayo.

    Good morning to ALL.

    • @ paul Maayo’ng aga, Dodong. 🙂

      I guess I stumbled onto the answer to my question (to you)… About the double ‘l’ pronunciation.

      ‘Pag SIMULA LANG siya ibinibigkas as ‘j’. So in this case, ‘jegado’.

      ‘Pag ‘asa gitna, the usual ‘y’. As in ‘En-ca-ya-do’ (Artopian Internationale Prez, above).

      Listen to Flavio’s ‘Dejarse Llevar’; the lyric sheet is key!

      … But right now, I’m listening to a REALLY ILL/SICK remix of Seal’s ‘Crazy’, with which he serenaded Wurtzbach on her way to our third MU crown back in 2015.

  11. Does the corporate sponsorship entail making the entire MWP or Mr Vegafrancia the topmost line in the MLM scheme, and the candidates the downlines? If each candidate will bring her hordes of fans as downlines, it will mean huge immediate commission income for the topmost line, as well as some trickles to the downlines. If the MLM schema is this, it’s a positive note as the candidates and the fans will be earning commissions. But this is a radical departure from the noble purpose of the beauty contest (if there is any). It smacks of an MLM organization acquiring an existing affinity group as both consumers and sellers of its products. Are we about to hear MWP candidates selling Artopian products?

  12. omg super cheap venue… at least cover the entire background… those poor paintings…hihihih

  13. Joketch! Frontrow is to MUP as to Astropian is to MWP!

    Ganern na ba ang analogy ngayon?

    Bili kayo diyan ng mga whitening products!

    • @Claire: acquiring a natural multi-level affinity group like a pageantry organization is a sure-fire way of exponentially expanding one’s market. In a business model where the seller is also the consumer and revenue is not so much about the demand for a product but more about the speed with which one can replicate binary or tertiary downlines, pageant organizations are a very lucrative route to expand one’s business with. There are pros and cons of this on a pageant organization but depending on how it plays out, it has the potential of diluting the very purpose of pageantry.

    • @ ClaiRe IbbeTson & @ scorg Ako, kahit gaano kadalas mag-papaya soap (demand-driven), noggers pa rin. 😦

      Baka kailangan na mag-gluta drip? 🙂

      Which is a more viable (long-term) sponsor-partner for a pageant organization? A MLM firm like this that sells the skin whitener? Or, something more on the lines of a clinic, like Miss Paris Group (MI) or Piyavate Hospital (MGI)?

  14. ANG LIIT NI GANIEL KRISHNAN!! Standing at only 5’5″.. mas matangkad pa yung katabi nyang si Maureen Tracy Perez who stands at 5’6″!!

    • Yes. I think she’s 5’2 to 5’3 only. I stand 5’5 in flats. Matangkad pko s knya. I see her often during her Courtside reporter days in UAAP.

  15. Almost all the ladies who attended the launch are the heavy favorites. Is this a foregone conclusion for these girls. He he.

    • Serge let e see your latest MWP picks. Thanks. Maayong buntag gikan sa Mindanao.

      • @paul. After the MWP-Artopian Internationale event, there is no change in my choices.

        De Mesa-World
        Vera-Supra
        Pajares-Miss Environment Philippines.
        Pagantian: RHA
        Austria- Eco Teen
        Paton: Eco Int’l
        Krishnan-Multinational
        Tourism- Famorcan

  16. I can see the sponsorship appeal of beaurty pageants on multi-level marketing company– it can at once have a long list of downlines from among the hordes of fans and supporters of the candidates. Marketing coup? Maybe. I just hope that the eventual winner will not be based on the depth and width of the membership levels the contestant generates.
