Look who’s modeling for the online shop of Hollister.com – it’s former Bb. Pilipinas Universe and Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon wearing the latest casual dresses/get-ups of the popular brand.
Life as a model in the US is never easy (it actually is not most anywhere else) so I commend Janine for sustaining her chosen post-pageant career. And so, her shelf life in the public eye continues.

Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon has added another achievement in her US-based modeling career. She appears as one of the four leads in the latest VSPink (Victoria’s Secret Pink) advertisement which you can watch below.

Janine is happy with life in the US of A. The breaks may not be as abundant as pageant fans and followers would expect, but she is making strides that show her determination to make it where the competition is tougher than nailing a Miss Universe crown in real-life terms.
Keep it up, Janine!

Now back to my hot cup of Sunday morning coffee. 😉
Maxine Medina and Janine Tugonon bond in L.A.
Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina flew to Los Angeles last week for a vacation that was somehow a visual assignment as well. When Miss USA 2016 was staged at the T-Mobile Arena last Sunday night, I could already sense that she was also in the audience watching the entire proceedings. And this is a good thing because that would give our bet a pretty good idea of how the pageant works. After all, it will be the same team that will handle Miss Universe come December. So it all makes sense to watch and learn.
Meanwhile, back in L.A., Maxine got the chance to spend some time with Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon. The latter must have given her more useful tips on how to handle the inner workings of Miss Universe.
And while she’s still in the City of Angels, Maxine was also feted to a warm get-together with her friends and #Maxinatics supporters alongside Jonas Gaffud, Angela Fernando and sister Ferica (see photo below).

So now, I leave you with a photo from the fashion editorial Maxine did for Slice Magazine. It happens to be one of her favorite shoots actually. Good night while I catch up on much-needed sleep. 🙂

Janine Tugonon’s latest from Raymond Saldaña
Today’s Senti feature is on Miss Universe 2015 1st Runner-Up Janine Mari Tugonon who is a recent Manila visitor. Proof is the latest photoshoot she had with ace photographer Raymond Saldaña (see photo above
) which has just been uploaded awhile back.
Tomorrow morning in Manila, Miss Universe 2015 will be crowned. Will Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach be the one? Hard to make a solid answer for now.
In the meantime, let us watch the video by Anthony M Gomes which is a tribute of sorts to the Binibini who very narrowly missed the crown against eventual winner Olivia Culpo also in Las Vegas exactly three years ago today. 🙂

Look who’s going to be a fellow pageant blogger. Jonas Gaffud, that’s who.
The Beauty Queen-Maker has shared the upcoming endeavor in his Facebook account: “Starting my blog soon about my journey into the world of beauty pageants etc.”
And following the same thread, it is likely that his blog will go live starting Tuesday, September 1. It’s coming real soon. And it should be filled with a lot of highlights and sidelights from all the beauty pageants he has fielded his winning national and international Queens in, and more. Juicier than juicy tidbits, I reckon?
I can’t wait to read the first entry! 😀

She also found time to reunite with Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up. Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Bianca Guidotti is still into her NGO commitments after hosting her friend Miss Grand Netherlands 2015 Shauny Bult who was here on a one-month vacation. Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson is back in Manila after her London and Paris sojourn (photo above was taken during her day trip to Paris Disneyland
). Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Santiago is spending precious time in Albay with family and friends. Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah is doing pictorials to build up her portfolio and accepting out of town pageant judging invites. 1st Runner-Up Laura Lehmann is busy with her studies at Ateneo de Manila University while accepting occasional modeling shoots (like the photo above which appeared on the Philippine Daily Inquirer yesterday
). And just very recently, 2nd Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison (who continues to be part of the 2015 Queens
