During last year’s edition of Miss Universe Philippines, she was one of the ladies considered to be potential spoilers for the crown. And indeed, she climbed until the Top 10 which meant being part of the shortlist the organization is eyeing for a possible win. Some pageant quarters even thought for a while that she may just be able to score a back-to-back win for Cebu City following the victory of Beatrice Luigi Gomez the year before.
Is Chantal Elise Schmidt ready for further transformation this 2023? This well-spoken Fil-German stunner from the Queen City of the South is likely to make a return to pageantry and fulfill the proverbial unfinished business of winning a crown. But a slice of the pageant fundamentalists may frown by asking what a professional model and host can offer to be considered part of the new breed of Filipinas for Miss Universe. Well, I say let’s cut her some slack for now. Gut-feel is telling me that she still has aces up her sleeve that still remain unappreciated. I know that she has it in her to deliver.
Watch out for Chantal soon!
Another candidate na isasama middle name dahil “Schmidt” doesn’t sound Filipina enough. Magnayon-Gray and Alonzo-Wurtzbach again.
A big NO.
If not now. When???
Now is the time
When???? When Bella is NOT in the roster…. because you prefer Bella to her. Your Question answered??
I really think that if she is gunning for the crown, she would lay low from pageantry and focus on success outside pageantry, so once she wants to come back, she will come back more confident, much wiser and more mature to be ready to represent the country.
These girls need to get some real life advice and not just pageant-focused advice.
Right now, I don’t see her as an MUP.
No thank you.
Need to work on not projecting RBF. Like it or not, that can make or break you at finals.
Great stage presence , very powerful speaker
Young , great body
I won’t mind if she wins MUP even though I am a solid Bella fan
Just need better styling to soften her look
I also like bella, eloquent and efforless speaker. Yun nga lang she needs to master how to deliver very short/ direct but deadly answers sa Q and A (time limit and all) I mean im sure she has meaningful things to say, but yun nga within the time limit. As for Chantal, okay din sya but , right, softern the features , she comes off a bit tranny-ish at times. but who knows baka ma appreaciate yan ni khun anne.
I watched her in Bb… though fluent in English , she was not able to speak her mind effectively
If she is the MUP at MU2023 , I will be very nervous if she can land in the semifinals
BBP?!… You may have mistaken her for the other Filipina-German. I’m not saying the name.
I, too, would be a tad nervous. At the MUP 2022 Finale Top 10 Question Round, she said pageantry has given this introvert a platform to come out of her shell (to that effect) & I sensed the PALPABLE nervousness.
(I got the vibe of that Ilongga Bb who jumped in for a second attempt, even switching camps in her determination… Alas, mapasabay ka ba, naman, sa mga tulad nu’ng dalawa’ng taga-Eastern Visayas – Borongan & Tacloban City!)
My point : since she already has work with EmpirePh on their online show as co-hostess, may I kindly suggest to postpone~defer. Anyway, she’s already in the stable. Peace & ❤
yes , it’s not in BbP , it was MUPh
Being beautiful, tall 5′ 10″, Mercator Model and one of the Top 10 Finalist at MUP 2022 is not enough. If this Fil-German lass from Bacolod is serious of joining again MUP she should start working her advocacy now.
Tito Norman, what are her “credentials”–advocacy, occupation, achievements, back story, etc.?
IF SHE HAS A VERY GOOD ADVOCACY , SHE COULD BE A FRONTRUNNER
