Pia’s movie opens on Christmas Day
The love life of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is no secret to pageant fans and followers. With Marlon Stockinger, she always feels safe and happy. You should see how the latter supports and adorably fusses over the needs of her lovely girlfriend. And inspite of the controversies that happened before, they both remain solid.

This coming Christmas Day, Queen P has a treat for everyone. Her first full-length feature movie in one of the lead roles will open for the Metro Manila Film Festival. Titled “The Revengers Squad”, she stars with Vice Ganda and Daniel Padilla as superheroes. And just to stretch the pageant relation of the action-comedy flick, two more beauty queens are in the cast as villains – Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ara Arida and Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Bianca Guidotti.
Here’s the teaser for “The Revengers Squad”.

Queen P crowning Miss Manila 2017 Maria Gail Tobes
Miss Manila 2016 Cristelle Tolentino
More than a few eyebrows were raised during the finals night of Miss Manila 2017 last June 24 when – instead of outgoing titleholder Cristelle Tolentino – Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach (who sat on the panel of judges
) was the one tasked to put the crown of Miss Manila 2017 Maria Gail Tobes.
Well, I asked Cristelle about the whole thing (which is as equally important as the farewell walk to any outgoing titleholder) and this was her reply:
A lot of people are actually concerned about the crowning moment…it was Viva Entertainment who decided to do it po. There’s quite a few who asked me din po about it…Maybe because Ms. Pia was Miss Universe and they are after making it trend.
Well, if Viva wanted to trend the finals (or even the pre-pageant activities leading to it), then the people behind should have sought more support from the online media. I wanted so much to give enough focus on the other candidates, but then again…
Miss Manila 2017 and her court
Based on the order of the ladies above, the Miss Manila 2017 winners are: 4th runner up – No. 21 Naelah Alshorbaji Almazik, 2nd runner up – No. 18 Diana Mackey, Miss Manila – No. 11 Maria Gail Tobes, 1st runner up – No. 23 Francesca Camargo and 3rd runner up – No. 7 Sofia Sibug.
