  1. Buti naman at Telemundo friendly ang kinoronahan. Can’t imagine other girls than Celeste and Michelle competing against the likes of Maria Aristizabal and all those gorgeous contestants na hayok na sa MUT. Oh siguro naman matitigil na ang mga rumor na may Aces and Queens bias since Celeste was originally a KF girl turned to The Camp

    All I can say is, this is our first front runner material since Catriona. She will lead a lot of hot picks as we the MU gets closer for sure

  2. Tough call for my pick, Michelle Dee.
    She had the exotic beauty that would have stood out at MU.

    The more “exotic” reps as Miriam Quiambao/1st runner up, Venus Raj/ 4th runner-up, Janine Tugonon/1st runner up and Bea Luigi/top 5 all were fierce contenders in their editions of MU.

    But…we move on. May the streak continue to 13.

    • I agree totally with the exotic beauty of MMDee … very popular in the late 1990s , but also even up to now , they fight for the crown !

  3. Oh hey, Congratulations to the CAMP! They finally have their queen after two close wins.

    They developed a good and steady campaign. The strategy of homing the QnA answers to the girl’s inner values (in Celeste’s case, family-love) worked!

    Tito Norm, any hint of who the people behind the CAMP are? Aside from being US based pageant enthusiasts?

    • Yes . I think Celeste deserved to win
      But there were 3 more deserving girls

      • If there were 3 more deserving girls, then it means she didn’t deserve to win 3 times? Lol

        You always don’t like the winner.

        You hated Rabiya from head to toes.

        (I can’t remember if you liked Bea)

        Bea’s biggest fan here is WilYam. He couldn’t stand seeing Harnaaz wearing the MU crown. Lol

      • I am ok with Celeste’s win
        And I was ok with Bea too though I thought Katrina D was much more deserving.
        Never a fan of Rabiya’s ,Bella was definitely the better competitor

  4. pia crammed on her hosting job. what a shame. her co host were all at ease and comfy and yet, there she was, always obviously taking cue from the prompter/director.. btw. congrats to the top5, and to ms makati and ms pasay.

  5. Post na po ng winners…wag ng umarte…charizzz…unless nakadiane35 ka..

  6. We had 3 great communicators in the top 5 and they chose Celeste
    Congratulations, Ysabella Roxas Ysmael , you are Miss Universe 2023!

    • I hope Bella has the same dream as yours. Keep on dreaming.

      • After seeing what happened to Pauline today. She might think thrice before joining again.

      • No , Bella has a much better chance than Pauline had this yr
        Bella is gorgeous and much more articulate than Pauline
        Watch her MU 2020 prelim interview , you will be inspired

        Pauline should join MWP now

  7. I Juander, kung nasa BPCI pa kaya ang MU franchise, mananalo kaya si Celeste? Anyway, congrats, next stop is MUPH2023…tapos na ang streak ng PH. Patunayan mo yan Celeste na deserving ka, aber!!!

    • Hoyyyy, yung mga nagthumbsdown magsaksk kayo ng insulin…charizzz

      • Naku sis, iredhorse na lang natin yan at Tagaytay…charizzz…bahala na…

      • nunyabiz1991- punta ka dito sa bahay sis…prepare tayo ng adobo then nomo nomo na …I wish kasama si Tito Norms…hug ko tlaga siya…

      • OMG, Had you not mention Tito Norm, I would think you have different intensions for inviting me. Lol. Thanks though! Lol

      • Nunyabiz1991- bakla…bakla ka…1 2 3 bakla ka pa rin…hhaahaha…bakit ganon? hahaha…

      • Tsk. I know. You need to get laid. Have faith. It will happen. In God’s time.

    • They crowned girls like Maxine and Gazini who obviously had worse Q&A answers than Celeste in this competition. They would surely crowm Celeste for sure

  8. The exclusion of Julia from the top 5 and the final pass after the Q&A were harbinger that physical aesthetics is the final stamp of approval for that coveted crown. That being said, winning Miss Universe 2022 might just be a wishful thinking. But continuing the impressive streak as Miss Universe semifinalist is almost as certain if not a done deal.

    Good job to all candidates.

    • It was difficult to comprehend I know. And Chantal who gave an equally compelling answer was also excluded.

      Julia’s answer was too serious I think. It felt emotionally heavy. And I think she was feeling overwhelmed by her inclusion to the top 10, she was actually crying when her name was called.

    • Ganda- ✅
      Sexiness – ✅
      Talino- ✅
      Celeste has it all 👸
      Ang Miss Universe ay hindi public speaking contest kundi kelangan din yun ibang factors.
      Si Celeste unforgettable talaga. sa true lang. wag na tayo bitter mga besh. may MUP pa next year.

    • And wrongfully so
      We could have done so much bettter in the last 2y if they chose the right one

    • Deserving si Celeste!! 👏👏
      Di maiwasan may bitter jan kasi hindi nanalo bet nila. Ano ba kayo may MUP2023 pa uy.

  9. Your prediction was right, Norman.

    Congratulations Celeste Cortesi.
    Miss Universe Philippines 2022!

  10. As comm manager , that’s what Voltaire does .. to give feelers to bloggers to get the public ready for the new MUP

    • Yeheyyyyy!!!
      Any of the top 3 pwede na sa crown!
      Celeste is on fire!
      Super excited for the Miss Universe 2022!!
      May laban ang Pinas! 👏👏

  11. Pia in red; Jessica Rabbit in real life. Vavavoom! Iris’s gown is divine.

    Morrisette should have done all the singing tonight. Girl’s got a set of powerful lungs.

  12. Potaaaaah! Akala ko si Julia Saubier ang lumabas para kumanta. Si Morisette pala! Nakakaloka.

    Best segment of them all — Catriona’s powerful statement, Morisette came out, then the candidates, and thereafter Misses Universe. Teary eyed ako.

    Grabe talaga si Iris, ang ganda-ganda ng mga damit n’ya, at ang galing n’ya magdala ng damit. Sige na, ibigay na ang korona sa kanya.

    That’s all.

  13. Wise color choice of Pia to wear as her final gown..
    It’s neither Red or Pink… I know she’s been very carefull for the past few days by only wearing neutrals…

    • PASAY!!!! Nakakashokot I can feel that she has to hang on to the crown kasi baka mahulog…hihihi

      Congrats to the top 5!!!

  14. Sa mga performers naman tayo…

    Itong Sam Concepcion is talented naman, pero hindi mag-kick ang career. He is the male counterpart of Julie Anne San Jose. Ano’ng kulang? Libog factor. Magpapayat ka, boi, magpatubo ka ng bigote at balbas, then magpa-tattoo. Dapat may abs ka din.

    On JM Bales, one hit wonder lang yata ito. Maganda ang boses, pero kulang sa push. Ez Mil, parang ganun din. He performed his song in front of the Filipino audience kung saan hindi na patok ang kanyang kanta.

    I like this Arthur Nery, bagay ang kanta n’ya sa evening gown portion o kaya sa Top 5 final walk.

    Big winner pa rin si Bamboo sa opening. Nakaka-energize ang presence n’ya. Truly world class. Bet na bet ko mga tipo ni Bamboo. Ewan ko ba. Hihi!

    That’s all.

    • pinipimples kasi Sam pagnaggym..
      pero ang kinis pag tumataba…
      Must be Hormonal issue..

  15. Katrina was obviously enjoying her time and I think the judges loved her bubbly personality.

    Annabelle could’ve ended stronger and with more drama.

    Michelle’s rehearsed “ang minamahal kong Pilipinas” came out of nowhere like a small burp.

    Pauline’s answer is strong and didn’t sound rehearsed.

    Celeste will win. She has been consistent about her family-centered values from beginning to end. That could’ve easily melted the hearts of the judges.

    The entire show was absolutely… boring. There seems to be a lot of dead air. No shots of the excited crowd. A smaller venue might be better for next year.

    • ABS tard spotted. Tapos na po ang era ng magulong camera work ni Mr. M. Bakit kailangan may shots ng audience? Napaka bakya.

    • If Annabelle doesn’t make it tonight. She will come back stronger. Stronger than Morisette’s voice. Lol

  16. That rapper needs more training from Eminem.

    LOL Why is Sam Conception (Diwatang kay ganda singer) wearing a bullet-proof vest?

  17. 4th RU – Taguig
    3rd RU – Misamis
    2nd RU – Makati
    1st RU – Pasay

    MUP – Bohol

    (Manifesting. Praying.)

  18. All the top 5 are stunning in their own unique way. But if in fact the Q&A is the final arbiter, then without a doubt, the crown should go to Pauline.

  19. Pauline has the best and deep answer. Celeste got the safest answer. Michelle got nowhere-here-nor-there answer. Annabelle’s answer left us hanging. I knew she had more to say but paused. Taguig’s answer would give her a fourth runner-up position.

    It should be Pauline. But, they would safely have Celeste. Let’s see.

    That’s all..

  20. Wish they all had to answer one question.

    Kat bombed it.

    Celeste’s answer relating to family – heard it before.
    Michelle is very calm but her answer has been heard before, too.

    Pauline gave the best answer to the question thrown at her … not far behind is Annabelle.

    • @Lala, I think Pasay’s answer was so endearing, heartfelt and sweet especially that she’s so far away from home. I think everyone can relate with homesickness and pining for mom. I’m now rooting for her along with my fellow Boholano, Pauline A

      • @Cool Brew, agreed that Celeste’s answer was heartfelt but Pauline’s answer overshadowed Celeste’s. I’m really rooting for Celeste but I think Pauline might snatch this year’s crown from her … we’ll see.

  21. The Trifecta is complete + Annabelle and Pauline.

    Pauline’s face when she got called last … like she was going to cry!

    Congratulations!

  22. Julia’s answer was too sell out. She’s like this: “C’mon, I am intelligent, give me the crown!”

    To the judges, I think, that was a turn off.

    That’s all.

    • I see her as an inspiring woman, not someone who is so full of herself. I will choose her over Pasay. She’s someone that I’d want my nieces to idolize and follow, a representative of an empowered Filipina.

    • I feel that too, Ana.

      Although her ending was powerful, she could have kept it simpler and omitted the latin honor.

      I find Chantal’s answer better.

      Vanessa might also pull a surprise.

      I am still rooting for Pauline.

  23. My top 5 after the casual Q&A (no particular order)

    Michelle
    Celeste
    Annabelle
    Pauline

    Chantal vs. Julia

    Maayos din sagot nina Vanessa at Lou, pero medyo kinulang lang sila.

    • Julia is out.
      Her answer was just a bit of bragging that she is highly intelligent.

  24. You can’t deny that these ladies got the gift of gab: Annabelle, Chantal, Pauline, Julia and Vanessa. You listen to what they have to say.

    Katrina is so enchanting but she gets nervous when she starts speaking.

    Celeste’s continuing her grace under pressure. Go, go Celeste!

  25. My main bet Pauline and 2nd choice Chantal are both underwhelming tonight.

    I hope they can redeem themselves in the next rounds.

    Michelle and Kat my the best in EG.

  26. Julia Saubier is the best speaker in the top 10. This gives her the opportunity to steal the crown from the front runners.

  27. This singer is supposedly an American Idol finalist and he’s gasping for air when hitting high notes 🙄
    Those platform heels are atrocious! I commend the ladies that opted for slim heels.

    In a sea of gold, white and red evening gowns, it was nice to something different: Celeste’s white and baby blue gown and Annabelle’s orange frock.

    Michelle bagged the Best in Evening Gown. Hers is very similar to what Chantal was wearing.

  28. This Francisco Martin is a mess. He’s like videoke-ing on the MUP stage. Hirap na hirap pa sa pag-reach ng high notes. Siguro pinuyat ng anes. Kakaloka.

    That’s all.

  29. Michelle Dee in that evening gown is just breathtaking.
    Not a fan of Celeste’s styling in her evening gown. Para syang tumanda!
    Katrina is stunning as well in that evening gown.
    Pauline is still underwhelming for me. There is something in her demeanor that says she is not confident of herself.
    I knew it that after the Prelims, Pangasinan is out and I was also right about Aklan getting a spot.
    Ilocos Sur is the ultimate surprise of this batch.
    I love Chantal during the SS segment but Celeste just edged out everyone in that rounds.

  30. I agree. Michelle was in her best in the evening gown. Celeste came close, and the not far third is Dorothy Gemillan.

    That’s all.

  31. Ang ganda ng dresses ni Iris. She is so elegant. She is a fashion diva. Hawig s’ya ni Chloe Skarne Concepcion.

    Ang ganda ng farewell suit outfit ni Bea, but the pink shoes are a bit odd to see.

    That’s all.

  32. Hearing Bea’ words and seeing her heart tonight,

    that, ladies and gentlemen is the reason why she is your

    Miss Universe 2021.

    • *Bea’s

      *Miss Universe Philippines

      Seeing her in that unexpected suit and pink shoes just made her even more UNIQUE.

  33. Bea channeling her Luigi side in that tuxedo 🙂 She’s got a “mabait” personality.

  34. Pasay for me is a little too free spirited for a Filipina. At ang dami nyang tattoos, pati yata sa pekpek meron na.

  35. Chantal and Celeste are vixens.

    Celeste bags Best in Swimsuit 🙂 Deserved!

  36. Shame that Pangasinan – IvyLou did not make it to Top 16 but happy to see the unexpected ladies get in. Ilocos Sur – Jewel is so tall.

    I see Catriona Gray in Iloilo Province – Vanessa Caro when she speaks. Eloquent.
    Pretty sure Albay – Julia, Misamis Oriental – Annabelle, Cebu City – Chantal, Cebu Province – Lou will give a good fight!

    Yes to the 2 anti-Trifectas: Palawan – Angelica and Baguio – Ghenesis
    Of course, the Trifecta is in: Makati – Michelle, Taguig – Katrina and Pasay – Celeste

    Bohol – Pauline is beaming 🙂

    Good luck to the Top 16 ladies!

    The gowns of the hosts are so beautiful … what a beautiful evening!

    • For me not steal naman. Sila ni Celeste may pinakamagandang mukha this year. I expected her to be in the list considering she’s a runner up in MEP and a Semifinalist sa MWP.

  37. The Philippines could have been doing a lot better if they chose the right girls the past 2y.
    Annabelle McDonnell , Philippines!!!

    Thomas :
    As the self-appointed survey taker and auditor, should not have an opinion at all. Lol.

    ==========================================================

    ANALYSIS:

    Will the frontrunner CCM (Celeste Cortesi MUP) do a BBM and just sit pretty — because it is almost in the bag?

    Or will Kakam-P (as in Pauline) catch up?

    Michelle statistically tied with Pauline. Will Katrina ask number 2 and 3 to withdraw?

    ABANGAN! Lol.

    (News Break : Last Minute defections / switches from Bonsaihater, K and Luigi. Lol.)

    2) Each Winning Team Member can choose any one member of the Losing Teams to bash and rant about in the comment section. Lol.

    3). If the winning candidate is the same as the choice of Norman, Norman, to send via Food Grab P250 Jollibee value meal worth to the other winning members. Please send privately to Norman your address. LOL.

    LOSING TEAMS PENALTY:

    1) Will Promise Not To Bash the eventual Winner until after the MU competition.

    2) Will post in the comment section their close up photo , and everyone is allowed to judge them. Lol.

    3) One member of the Losing Team can choose one member of the winning Team and send over P250 worth of Mang Inasal value meal.

    • Thomas, there’s also a Ramon Lua and Mark (from previous post) who both picked Chantal. Maybe they missed your deadline.

      Also, isama mo na si Bella Ysmael ni Fabian. Nakakaumay na kasi! Every other day na lang ay minemention si Bella, VVV, Katrina, etc. instead of Rabiya and Bea. Move on na!

      • U know naman pag kulubot na paulit ulit na lang. Ang ibang brain neurons dead na. Tissues na lang ang natira na gangrenous na rin. Pagpasensyahan nyo na po ang matanda

  39. Hi Thomas!

    In addition to my main choice Pauline,
    I am also in Team Chantal (2nd choice).

    I’d still choose someone who captivates you when she speaks, who radiates warmth and sincerity.

    Thanks!

  40. Thomas, please count me in. Maski na Anonymous aq. I think I also missed the deadline but I’ve said all along that Chantal is my pick. I, at least, want my vote to count, not for my sake but for Chantal’s. Thanks!

    • I like u na Thomasita…Promise. A breath of fresh air. Facetious. Gleeful. Thank you for acknowledging me as that chimp’s nemesis. For as long as I live, I will be her worst nightmare. I will NEVER allow that bitchina dominate this blog. Dun sya sa kagubatan where she belongs! Mashoho at kulubot na mashonda!

    • @Thomas, im really sorry for mossing the deadline. It’s vesper day here in Bohol’s capital city Tagbilaran.

      Anyway, for all its worth, I’m going for our bet from Bohol, Pauline.
