After initial news developments prior had Cory Quirino of CQ Global Quest opting to transfer to TV5 for the network coverage of Miss World Philippines 2016, the image above (showing Ms Cory shaking hands with GMA-7’s Joey Abacan) should be proof that the national pageant will stay put at GMA-7 with Viva Entertainment still in the partnership.
Business will always be business. And whoever offers the better deal (and the wider network reach) prevails in the end, in my opinion.
Now the more baffling question is, will the organization be able to assemble an acceptable number of Official Candidates for 2016? With only eight (8) ladies showing up for the General Screening, will more sign-ups follow to add up to the number? I am hoping so.
Miss World 2013 Megan Young
Miss World 2013 Megan Young has really immersed herself back into TV acting. After her successful comeback as “Marimar” last year, she is now ready to do heavy drama in her next project with GMA-7 where she will star opposite actor Dingdong Dantes and test her acting chops with Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Jaclyn Jose and character actor Sid Lucero.
This is such a welcome assignment for the former Miss World because she was already into continuous serious acting prior to winning the blue crown in Bali last 2013. And given the advocacy-driven theme of the still-untitled teleserye, she is excited to be part of another ground-breaking series for the TV network.
Best of luck, Megan! Looking forward to this one!

Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach with host Tim Yap
This is not a totally wayback Senti Special because the TV guesting of Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach on The Tim Yap Show took place only a week or so before our Queen left for Las Vegas where she is now in the thick of competition for the Miss Universe 2015 crown.
But just like Pia’s interview turns on The Bottomline and Tonight with Boy Abunda, this one is where she summed up all her trainings and preparations for the pageant. The one-on-one on top of the bed gave a more laid-back approach to her answers.

Neil and lead star Ryzza Mae Dizon
Tomorrow late morning just before the start of GMA-7’s noontime variety show “Eat Bulaga”, a new teleserye
will start airing, and it will be the very-first one for Mister International 2014 Neil Perez. It is entitled “Princess in the Palace” starring child actress Ryzza Mae Dizon, Aiza Seguerra and Ms. Eula Valdez. In it, our dashing “Pambansang Kuya
” will play the role of a Presidential Security Group (PSG) Officer detailed to protect the (fictitious
) Lady President of the Philippines.
This is a whole new experience for Neil, even if he already did some TV guestings on weekly drama episodes of shows on TV5 prior. At first, he had some struggles adjusting to the long taping hours, but it was never really daunting. He adjusted quite easily and now, he will see the final results of his efforts.
Watch the teaser trailer below.

Please support Mister International 2014 Neil Perez in “Princess in the Palace” on GMA-7!😉
Miss World 2013 Megan Young is a happy MariMar. The pilot episode of her show was on top of the Philippine-trending hashtags (#MariMar2015) last night. And pending the release of actual TV ratings from AGB Nielsen and Kantar, it should have posted healthy numbers alongside the competition.
Megan and leading man Tom Rodriguez would like to thank everyone for the support and are asking for the continued support of the show on GMA-7 every night after 24Oras.
Thumbs up to the new MariMar!😀

And the media appearances of the Misters 2015 The Pageant Official Candidates have started.
After yesterday’s radio tour which included a visit to DZRH Radio Television, the guys woke up for an early call time to do their first big network guesting on GMA-7’s morning show ‘Unang Hirit’ with host Suzie Abrera interviewing them alongside Mister Global Philippines 2014 Joseph Doruelo.
Everyone had a good time in the activity which took place only hours earlier. And they know very well how important these exposures really are.
There will be more in the coming days and weeks ahead, Misters!
