You may need to watch the video clip above sideways, but it contains the scene from last night’s episode of ABS-CBN’s top-rating “La Luna Sangre” where Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago appeared in an intimate “vampire” scene with actor Richard Gutierrez.
Below are quick shots from the same.
Who doesn’t watch Miss Q&A on It’s Showtime nowadays? All eyes are glued on this segment of the noontime show that it has become such a popular viewing fare that nobody wants to pass up on. And when Matrica Mae “MatMat” Centino won the crown for the tenth time, she automatically advanced to the Grand Finals – and became Hall of Famer – of the search and was promptly guested by host Boy Abunda in his nightly show on ABS-CBN.
Here are videos from her TV interview guesting. Watch now.

And since we’re in the subject of Miss Q&A, below is resident judge Miss Grand International 2016 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordoves defending her style of judging on the show.
Just when you thought that you’re filled to the brim with national beauty contests sprouting left and right, here comes Eat Bulaga on GMA Network which has just started the search for Miss Millenial Philippines 2017. No, this is not one of those gimmicky segment fillers of the popular noontime show. It is actually a proper beauty pageant participated in by close to forty (40) candidates who won in their respective provinces plus a few others who have already participated in other national competitions such as Dianne Lacayanga of Ilocos Norte & Jaila Ragindin of Bataan in Mutya ng Pilipinas and Sofia Panapanaan in Miss Philippines Earth. The focus is on local tourism and how each participant will enthusiastically promote her place of origin while presenting herself as the best version of the female millenial for 2017.
Below is a photo grid of the candidates.

The big difference in this pageant is the candidates’ frequent exposures on nationwide TV with the different stages of the competition televised daily. And for sure, the supporters of each of them will come in droves to cheer and make noise all the way.
More on Miss Millenial Philippines 2017 in the days and weeks to come.
Gabbi as photographed by Erwin Canlas for Preview Magazine
She answers to the full name Gabriella Louise Ortega Lopez. But in the world of local showbiz, she is simply known by her screen name “Gabbi Garcia”.
An exclusive talent of GMA Artist Center, Gabbi is all of 18 and already showing great potentials of becoming a beauty queen years from now. In fact, she said during an interview with Allan Policarpio of the Philippine Daily Inquirer that “Given the chance, I’d love to join Binibining Pilipinas. I’m only 18. But maybe when I turn 22 and have become more mature, who knows? I stand 5 feet, 7 inches. Maybe I’d still get taller!”
The past number of months saw her being pitted against ABS-CBN’s Liza Soberano as the likeliest joiners of a future Bb. Pilipinas edition representing GMA Network. And I don’t see why not. Given time to evolve into the “right” age for the nationals, she could really suit for pageantry and be a titleholder someday.
But for now, let us enjoy her blooming beauty on the small screen. 🙂

This coming Saturday, July 1, Maalaala Mo Kaya
(MMK) on ABS-CBN will feature the life story of internationally-renowned Fashion Designer Rocky Gathercole who will be played by young actor Arjo Atayde in an episode that will trace his rise to fame coming off from early struggles and heartaches in life.
This should be an interesting watch as the public will get to know more of the individual who comes up with some of the most dazzling and meticulously-crafted collections I have seen. In the fashion show portion of the same (styled by Patrick Henry Mergano and accessorized by Christopher Munar with shoes by Jojo Bragais), he is reunited with one of his muses (right photo) – Priscilla Kim dela Cruz – who wore his attention-grabbing national costume during Bb. Pilipinas 2016.

Mark the airing date so you won’t miss it. In the meantime, watch a previous ABS-CBN feature on Rocky on the show “My Puhunan”.
While we await the official results of Asia’s Next Top Model Season 5 which will be revealed next week in the season finale, let us look at the lighter side of this beautiful Fil-German who – in the video below from Preview Magazine – gives us samplings of her fluency in the German language. She makes it sound easy like Heidi Klum during Project Runway.

Gloria, Pia and Margie for Magnolia Chicken
Magnolia Chicken has achieved a casting coup of sorts by assembling the Philippines’ three Miss Universe titleholders – Gloria Diaz (1969), Margarita Moran (1973) and Pia Wurtzbach (2015) – in its latest TV commercial which christened their brand of fowl as “Pambansang Manok
” (National Chicken) in the process. I like it that the ad agency (PublicisJimenezBasic) behind the TVC was able to bring the concept to fruition as getting all three winners in one ad campaign is an idea waiting to be picked up since Pia won. Maybe the right brand is just waiting to be tapped for all three to appear in.
Watch the commercial now.
