  1. I dont mind if we will send mixed blood pinay again. As long as she is Filipina by blood. and has all the goods to maintain the streak until top 5. I dont mind if uuwi lang sa pinas just to join mup. MU questions especially on Finals isnt about being Filipina. how much filipina they are. Filipino culture. Filipino history or being able to speak tagalog or any pinoy dialects. MUP winner is going to compete in Miss Universe. Not on a Beauty Pageant that advocacy is about cultures. History. But of course gusto ko din makapag crown ulit ang mup ng hinde halfies. Pero kung mas nag stand out naman ang mixed why not. after winning MUP They have time naman to study some Filipino Cultures. History etc etc kung kinakailangan. But nowadays MU is more than that.

    • @Jed, with your line of reasoning, that is why in the Philippines, we have Party List Representatives of farmers who are represented by rich landowners and hacienderos, of jeepney and tricycle drivers who are represented by billionaire fleet operators. The Party List system that is supposed to give representation to the marginalized poor are being represented in Congress by the billionaires. Their claim? The same as your reasoning. They also have “the goods to maintain the streak” of their social and political class– college degree, title, English fluency to carry a debate, etc. They don’t have to experience what their publics go through to represent them. They have studied history and culture in school.

  2. Beatrice Luigi Gomez.

    The unperturbed beauty queen who proved her bashers that she’s got it no matter what. Now she is enjoying her reign as MUP and will soon be transferring the crown to her successor.

    Was she ever affected by any bashing? Did she ever react on it? Then that makes her a phenomenal queen.

    That’s all.

    • @AWL, in this industry where bashers, negatrons and trolls litter every nook and cranny, where everyone thinks they are beauty experts that have the authority to pry and comment on just about anything (not sparing even armpits, necklines, nails, moles and maybe even innards), I think it is a good virtue not to read social media, especially when one is in the thick of competition. That was the waterloo of Rabiya, the one Madam Pilar of MG was I think alluding to in her remarks that bashing “affects the performance of candidates”.

  3. I imagine Bea’s relief when her name was called as one of the finalists. Bea’s successor will have the pressure of continuing Philippines’ placement streak in MU.

  4. MY PROPOSAL FOR MUP. TO HAVE A GENERAL KNOWLEDGE TEST SUBCONTEST, LIKE WHAT THEY DO IN MISS INDIA AND FRANCE. Para naman alam natin kung sino may alam at may pakialam talaga sa Pilipinas, hindi lang yung pupunta dito tapos uuwi. Nakakaloka. LONG QUIZ ABOUT PHILIPPINES HISTORY, CULTURE AND THE ARTS. I DON’T WANT WHITE LOOKING CANDIDATE WITH NO IDEA ABOUT OUR HISTORY REPRESENTING US.

    • @Diana Hayden: Very sensible recommendation! If I may add, ability to talk in conversational Filipino or any local; dialect. If we are looking for someone to carry the Philippine sash, let’s seriously look for someone to represent the majority of our people in thought, in deed and in language, let alone in looks.

      • Yes scorg. I bet ang mga nadidislike ng post ko is tung mga taong okay lang ang representative na hindi alam ang meaning ng ating watawat… Nakakaloka just to add, ironically in Miss France candidates who do well in that segment is yung mga Territories nila outside Europe. Example Guyana Guadeloupe Seychelles.

      • @Diana Hayden: Filipinos take beauty pageants seriously. What I don’t understand is the irony of being represented by someone who was raised, educated and maybe even born abroad from mixed marriage, whose culture is obviously non-Filipino. They easily win because they speak English fluently, with foreign twang to boot. I feel so sorry for bronze goddesses from the provinces whose halting English is perceived as low intelligence. It is high time Philippine pageantry levels this uneven playing field.

      • @ scorg That bronze goddess that would have raised our flag was the subject of a recent post. I am not implying anything negative against her. But she came to mind… Sayang, na-Covid. 😦

        Point is, mayroon naman. Dili laging biracial na laking abroad.

        And Taty Austria (1st Runner-up at Miss Eco Teen 2021) wasn’t bad at all!

        Oh, which reminds me…

        Teresita Ssen, if you are unaware & this is clearly off-topic, is having a daughter. 🙂

      • That’s what Thai representatives differ from us. Amanda, Maria and Anchilee speak Thai fluently. Well maybe because they were raised in Thailand. Fahsai was raised in Canada, but she speaks Fluent Thai..

      • From the the 3 entities you mentioned, sa Guadeloupe ka Lang tumama, being a French territory. SEYCHELLES and GUYANA are both independent countries and will never be qualified to join Miss France. Maybe you are refering to French Guiana in South America, o kaya ang Mayotte and Réunion na mas malapit sa Seychelles?

    • It’s French Guiana and not Guyana. The latter is an independent country and former British colony and not related to France.

  5. The ground broken by Beatrice Luigi is that a lesbian, & one with a visible tattoo at that, top 5’ed.

    That is a MAJOR statement on the part of MUO. I recall that post Uncle made about inked queens. It was an obvious call for (more) tolerance. Looks like it worked! Iba talaga ang salamanca ni Blogger. 🙂

    Uncle, feeling ko ‘yung isang reader dito na laging bumabara kay @ Fabian Reyes (& myself, huhuhuhh…), one of the ‘pillars’ of MUPO. 😦

    Loving once more the homage to the Paco Rabanne chain mail dress. How heavy is this one?

      • @ Cool Brew How are you? The storm could not have been easy for you, to say the least.

        I saw video footage of ‘Odette’ pummeling Ubay, where Karen Gallman hails from. I was there the last time I was in Bohol. I thought of the big Alturas facility; I wonder what became of the roof…

        Those of us who watched the Prelims or at least saw Bea’s turn (thanks to pageant vloggers who painstakingly prepare snippets convenient enough for us to watch) know the annotator himself said she is lesbian. I just wish to be clear on that. Baka isipin, nagluluka-luka lang ako.

        Please take care of yourself. Have a peaceful 2022! I will always have fond memories of Panglao.

  6. Bea is now more relaxed to experiment and have fun with her looks without fear of bombardment of comments left and right. She has nothing to prove anymore. The “fierce look” that so many have been saying was lacking during her MU stint is all right here.

    Verdict : Wise move she didn’t utilize the fierce look so much.

    World Peace.
