  1. Not the most beautiful but definitely the most authentic!
    The Universe deserves to see a classy, articulate, unconventional, smart (actually very smart), & authentic Filipina!

  2. A&Q will surely help her improve her styling and pasarela. Those aren’t hard to achieve especially she’s very determined. Kahit 10 rounds ng Q&A hindi sya sasablay.

  3. First Pick for MUP 2022

    Top 3: Julia Saubier, 27, 5’11”; Chantal Schmidt, 5’10”; and Vanessa Caro, 24, 5’9″ All A&Q

    Top 5: Michelle Dee 26, 5’9″ and Katrina Llegado, 24, 5’7″ TCI

    • Chantal Schmidt is very young at 20 years old. She has long way to go. She has 6 more years for MWP. And she has 8 more years for BPP, MPE & MUP (once again).

      Vanessa Caro, 24 years old, has 4 more years for MUP, BPP and MPE.

      Julia Saubier, 27 years old, can still join BPP and MPE next year.

      • Vanessa Caro is very promising. Michelle Dee has to watch out for this lady. Tall, intelligent and an excellent communicator.

  4. She would be one of the frontrunners but There is a problem in her Pasarela. She is stiff and there is exaggeration of lumbar lordosis. Her walk does not appear natural.

    • So intensive training in pasarela is needed, Serge. And effective styling (make up, hairstyle and wardrobe.).

    • I think the lumbar lordosis you see is just an act to make her butt look bigger… What she really needs to do is some squats and deadlifts that would bulk up her butt muscles more than her thighs… And a high-estrogenic diet rich in legumes, citrus, ipomea leaves, & yams to grow her boobs naturaly..

  5. If she’ll be competing against Michelle Marquez Dee and Katrina Llagado.. I wonder how would that turn-out?

    There is still a possibility for international heavyweights like Patricia Magtanong & Ahtisa Manalo to join this year..

    The girl does have the proportions of Irene Esser pre-surgery.. then Maybe she does have the potential to be transformed into a gorgeous glamazon? Would MUPh org be willing to take that challenge or just pick a winner with the lower risk?

  6. This is definitely the beauty that will add value to MU or MW brand. Julia has outstanding academic, work, athletic and advocacy credentials that will easily make her miles ahead of the pack. Like @lonewulf, I also do not get the”but she’s not…” comments. Her physical beauty may not exactly fit the Western standard of most most Filipino pageant fans, as despite her being a halfie, Filipino features obviously are more prominent. But international beauty yardstick have long been liberated from the Western hegemony on beauty standards. Thus we see the ascendance of Zozi Tunzi, Toni-Ann Singh, and others who are outstanding beauties from a different cultural lens. I am one of those who were disappointed when she did not even make the first cut in the first pageant she joined two years ago. Apparently, she was in a pageant that put premium on physical assets, not intellectual prowess, sterling life-work experiences and capacity for value-driven advocacies.

  7. Yes, she’s beautiful in her own right, but her beauty is not what we call a beauty queen material. If we place her side by side with Charlene Gonzales and Miriam Quiambao or Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray, no doubt she definitely pale in comparison. Her level of intelligence is outstanding but her beauty is questionable. Being intelligent or being physically endowed should not only be the sole barometer. We need a Philippine representative who is a total package so that we can easily secure our 5th crown.

    • Zozibini Tunzi and Andrea Meza’s facial features are also QUESTIONABLE but they won MU anyway. These two are NOT facially stunning specially the former. Si Andrea ang LAPAD ng mukha at hindi talaga kagandahan. The current Miss South Africa is not beautiful as well but ended as 2nd runners up.

      Personality, Branding and Packaging/Styling do matter to the MU Organization and not just physical beauty.

      Si Karen Ibasco nga nanalong Miss Earth. He, he, he…

      Maayong hapon sa tanan.

      • paul, without a doubt, I would pick Zozibini and Andrea over Julia because these two ladies are miles ahead of her.

        Yes, personality, branding and the like matter to the MUO and not just physical beauty alone, that’s why as I’ve said, we need someone who is a total package to win the whole shebang.

        I’m talking about choosing someone who can bring home our 5th crown, so if you want Julia to win let her join Miss Earth then.

        So, is there anything you can offer to make this afternoon maayo, paul?

  8. I don’t get the “but she’s not…” comments. The girl is leagues ahead most PH girls in local pageants. She’s beautiful, well-proportioned, tall, and best of all, she’s got mighty credentials.

    She had me at Wes Anderson.

    And when she speaks, she exhibits depth.

    If given the chance, she would revive the image of pageantry to be about matters way beyond “just” facial beauty. Her substance, achievements (so far) would make her a beacon in this rather shallow activity.

    • Julia is the kind of girl the MU organization is looking for. She is very articulate and knowledgeable.

      • Kung si Julia ang ipinadala sa MU noong 2019, baka naging 1st runners up pa ito kay Zozi Tunzi.

  9. the type of beauty that reminds me of Gwendolyn Ruais, Miss World 2010 first princess … she should do well in MW, where the swimsuit and pasarela are not judged with much weight … but intelligence and eloquence with advocacy are top priority …

  10. To this date , I still don’t know why she didn’t make the first cut at Binibining Pilipinas
    Since Jonas wants someone ‘new ‘ every yr, I’m ok if he gambles on Julia this yr . She’s strong but very feminine . She’s super articulate and experienced . Facially , I donot think she’s too far away from the likes of Venus Shamcey Janine Ariella Rabiya Rachel and MJ.
    With proper training , she can be our 5th MU.

  11. Being Confident and having a good heart is one of the definition of “Beautiful” or “ Beauty” The universe has diverse beauties. Hinde pwedeng mala catriona lang. mala demi. mala paulina. Masyado tayo nasanay sa kanila. I think she is confident and with a good heart. It was 3 years ago when she joined bbp2019 and i think julia improved physically but hoping that the confidence is still there with more improvements in all important aspects. Sana mag ala irene eser sya. Effortlessly fierce and may spark din naman and stage presence. Just give strong effort on stage. Parang may mga ganyang asian beauty na hinde napapansin sa mu before because of lack in transformation. hit and miss styling and pasarela. With Philippines as a good pasarela trainer and etc etc may laban din naman. Just give her the right things she can use on stage. Hoping for a more competitive Julia come MUP and if she wins. Hoping for that in MU too.

    • Cool Brew HINDI RIN MAGANDA si Zuzibini Tunzi. Pero nananlo siyang Miss Universel. Yung Miss South Africa this year HINDI RIN MAGANDA pero naging 2nd runners up. MU is really looking for an excellent communicator and intelligent girl who can be an effective spokesperson for the organization and its causes.

    • @Cool Brew

      She has everything except… the Miss Universe Philippines title. …for her to be able to compete in Miss Universe 2022. He, he, he…

  12. good for Miss World Philippines … best advice to give her by her advisers …

  13. Her beauty is something of acquired taste for the Filipino pageant fans.

    Her credentials are beefy but let’s see if she can match it with her physical presence.

  14. She needs the doctor of Stephany Gutierrez, Irene Esser etc.. she’s tall and pretty but it’s a VEAUTY pageant.

  15. Pak! Eto ang lalamon ng mic!

    She can combine her learning from Shandy & Ian and give a prolific performance!

    Ka-excite ‘to!

  16. I hope she already had her leg scars and pasarella fixed… Her Chinese connections would be highly beneficial for Miss Universe.

    • Indeed Sjeffie, she just needs the right styling/packaging and hone further her pasarela and presentation skills. Julia is already very knowledgeable and an excellent communicator.
