More than a few days have passed and Miss Philippines Rachel Peters is in the thick of competition for Miss Universe 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
There are no crucial pre-pageant events yet, but how are you sizing up her presence so far? Are you happy with her OOTDs and selfies and random shots?
Is she living up to the pre-arrival hype and all?

P.S. A Fil-Am – Cecilio Asuncion of Slay Model Management – will be one of the judges for the Preliminaries scheduled for November 25.

Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters did not travel with just the luggage you can see in the photos above. There’s more if you will. The rest won’t fit the frame, though.
Seriously, I want our girl to do extremely well in Vegas. And I know she will! The place is good for our delegate, and with the support coming from the Fil-Ams all over the US (plus those who will fly from the Philippines), the cheers and constant adulation she is bound to receive should be more than enough to sustain the cloud that will lift her to the 9th level till November 26.
I was also sounded off on other things that could be beneficial to the bid of our Queen while in Vegas. But I am not at liberty to even blog about the same because, well, they are just sound-offs with a dash of speculation.
Let us support Rachel all the way so that the country’s winning streak will continue.
This just in: Contrary to rumors that Miss Philippines Nelda Ibe was eliminated during the Talent Finals of The Miss Globe 2017 for allegedly “lip-syncing” her song performance, my source in Tirana, Albania confirmed that NO such elimination took place at all. I was told that she delivered her number beautifully well.
Let us not bash our Queen and distract her chances of doing well in the competition. She has been nothing but nice to everyone (including the organizers) and spreading such information does not help her bid.
This is how my source explained it. “Just to clarify what all the bashers online are spreading, she (Nelda) did an excellent job in her talent and she used “plus one back music tracks” because all the other singers did the same also…”
And this explanation came from Nelda herself: “I wasn’t present during the announcement of the winners during the talent show (that’s why everyone is making rumors that I was eliminated) kasi dinala na po ako sa hospital right after I performed. Yes, I wasn’t feeling well but still I want to show up and the organizers know that.”
Let us maintain positivity in supporting our representatives please!
Sammie Anne Legaspi for Miss Lumiere International World 2017
While we’re all too wrapped up with Miss World in Sanya, Miss International in Tokyo, Miss Earth here in Manila, The Miss Globe in Tirana and Reina Hispanoamericana in Sta. Cruz, there is one more Filipina fighting it out for the country in Port Dickson, Malaysia at the moment. She is former Binibini (in this year’s batch) Sammie Anne Legaspi who is vying for the title in the inaugural edition of Miss Lumiere International World which will have its finals alongside the ones here at MOA Arena, Albania and Bolivia tomorrow night in Johor.
Thanks to her pageant experience in the national level, Sammie is also standing out in the competition as she placed 2nd Runner-Up in the talent segment and has high hopes that she will do well in the end.
Let us all wish our Beauty Queens the best in their respective conquests for more pageant honors in the international stage.
Best of luck, Sammie! 🙂
Here are the latest photos of the uber alluring Sirene Sutton as taken by Fashion Photographer Raphael Yu. This mesmerizingly statuesque beauty is totally in her elements in these photos. She is really back in her comfort zone. But I have not totally given up on her prospects of giving pageantry another try.
Bb. Pilipinas 2018?
What say you, dear readers?
Just finished: the BPCI 3-in-1 send-off for Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Queens Mariel de Leon, Elizabeth Clenci and Nelda Ibe at the Monet Ballroom 1 of Novotel Manila Araneta Center.
The three ladies were in high spirits and are more than ready to step up to the plate and win their respective competitions abroad. You can really see the fire in their eyes. But more than that, the very close sisterly bond has really made them source deep strength in each other.
Truth be told, I’m really feeling a potential victory for Elizabeth Clenci. Mariel, on the other hand, is not about to be defeated by the thought that no back-to-back victory has ever happened in Miss International. As far as Nelda is concerned, she is also well-advised by her predecessors on how to handle the competition in Albania.
Your blogger’s photo opportunity with the Queens
More about my thoughts about them in a separate blog.

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. 🙂
