Look: BTS in the filming of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Preliminary Q&A that will be shown in its entirety on October 21 in the #RingLightSeries.
If memory serves me right, this will be the #FirstTime in a national pageant that the crucial Preliminary Interviews will be open to the public to watch and help in completing their full assessment of the candidates who are likely to advance to the semifinals.
Photo grid above shows Paula Madarieta Ortega of Albay and Cole Silvernale of Angeles City in action.
Above is a photo grid of some of today’s arrivals of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates at the Holiday Inn Express Manila-Newport City where the second half of the ladies (in alphabetical order) checked-in today.
I separated the arrival photo of Christine Nicole Silvernale of Angeles City (right) because she was the last one to register last night for the first half.
Your prayers are requested so that all of them will test negative in the swab test.
PS I added the arrival outfit of Riana Pangindian of Pasig City for Flor. And I included that of Bella because she represents my home city of Parañaque. 😊
As a pageant blogger, I’m supposed to come up with my new hot picks for Miss Universe Philippines 2020 by now. But I am still sticking to a good number of these #PhenomenalWomen because each one of them deserve to be seen and heard. The efforts they give in sustaining visibility in social media and other digital platforms – along with the APs and glam teams – are commendable.
So let me present my running Top 25 favorites – or the upper half of the 50 Official Candidates.

They say that purple is a mysterious color combining the opposites of red and blue.
Now when Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidate Christine Nicole Silvernale of Angeles City is embraced by it, then everything suddenly gets demystified. The beauty of a phenomenal woman takes over, with those luscious lips colored in a vibrant red adding a rich dot of flavor.

Here is Batch 2 of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Candidates and their Passions that never fade for Downy Philippines.
They encapsulate in ten seconds what I have been individually blogging about them for the past two months.
Spotlight time for the representative of Angeles City in Miss Universe Philippines 2020. Her name is Christine Nicole F. Silvernale.
“Relocating to Metro Manila in pursuit of my studies has opened my eyes to what all the hustle, bustle and stress can do to a person like myself. Living and handling things on my own often left me feeling alone. And it didn’t help in silencing the noise inside my head. But as I went ahead and continued dealing with the world around me, I realized that other people felt the same way. Furthermore, during a time like this when a pandemic has us confined in our homes, we may – possibly more than usual – find it hard to deal with our inner turmoils. These instances have led me to think that my voice should be used towards creating safe spaces for people through Mental Health Awareness.”
“Although most of my quarantine period had been spent towards our university’s continuing online education program, I looked for ways where I can help our brothers and sisters during this crisis, such as rendering myself useful in re-packing and distributing goods for Care for Every Juan, promoting food to table initiatives with the Lugud Balen charity organization, as well as donating what financial help I can spare for PAWSsion project. I truly believe that this isn’t a time to show indifference towards anyone, be they our fellow humans or our beloved strays.”
“I have also vowed to be constantly updated with what is going on around me through online forum platforms, so that I can make informed opinions and decisions. It doesn’t matter however big or small the impact of my under-the-radar succor may create. I stick to believing what Mother Theresa once said that “if you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one”.
“Of course, I haven’t forgotten to tend to my own needs as well, nurturing my past love for art through painting, my head space through reading, and my body through exercising, to which I have gotten the whole household to join in on. These are the things that keep me busy, happy and healthy nowadays. I hope that hearing about this inspires you to be attuned with yourselves too.”
