Sharing with you the Ring Light Conversation of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates with reigning Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa.
I am sharing with you now the video of yesterday’s sashing ceremony of Miss Universe Thailand 2020 held at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers where the thirty (30) Official Candidates were presented as a group wearing their suits for the first time.
See if you can pick your top favorites for the title currently being held by Paweensuda Drouin who placed in the Top 5 of Miss Universe 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.
What are Zozibini Tunzi’s thoughts about being Miss Universe in the time of pandemic?
Miss Universe Thailand 2020 is very active in the Land of Smiles. And by October 10, the successor of last year’s Paweensuda Drouin (who made Top 5 during Miss Universe 2019 in Atlanta) will be known.
The videos below are in Thai. So unless you speak or understand the language, you will just rely on seeing the candidates in motion.
At any rate, below are the ten of the early favorites to win the crown. The most familiar face, of course, is Veena Praveenar Singh.
Exactly a year ago today, the Bb. Pilipinas 2019 Grand Coronation Night climaxed with the crowning of Gazini Christiana Jordi Ganados as Miss Universe Philippines 2019 by then reigning Miss Universe Catriona Gray.
She went on to represent the country in Atlanta for Miss Universe 2019 and finished in the Top 20.
Who will follow her footsteps and become Miss Universe Philippines 2020? And will she be actually crowning her successor later this year?

Sharing with you now the live chat between Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi and Fil-Am Geena Rocero, LGBT Advocate and Founder of the awareness and advocacy group Gender Proud.
Taking the cue on how you, my dear readers, reacted to the online chat between Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi and Miss Universe 2000 Lara Dutta, I decided to share another Indian beauty who brought pride to her country back in 1997 after winning Miss World.
The focus is on how this beauty queen-turned-actress handles sit-down interviews taped for a bigger audience. In the throwback video clips below, she guested on the talk show of Riz Khan on Al-Jazeera and discussed an assortment of topics that allow us to see through her personality and inner beauty.
As all of you know by now, Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi has been making good use of her quarantine time by chatting with either previous recent winners or fellow candidates during last year’s competition.
Below is her online one-on-one with Lara Dutta of India who was Miss Universe 2000 and who is celebrating her 20th Anniversary as the titleholder. Watch now.
You will all remember Angeline Flor Pua, the full-blooded Filipina who won the national crown of Miss Belgium 2019 and represented the Western European country in in both Miss World 2018 in Sanya, China where she competed with our Katarina Rodriguez and Miss Universe 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia against Gazini Ganados.
Angeline has recently started her own channel on YouTube. Check out this lady and see how she communicates to her subscribers. It is one aspect that we have not really seen and appreciate about her.
It’s already a given that Filipinos are the best exports the country has. Be it in contracted work or immigration, our kababayans almost always excel in anything that they set their hearts into, pageantry included.
In the Scandinavian region and Western Europe, four (4) Filipinas have scored wins in the national pageants of their respective home countries. These ladies went on to compete for three of the biggest crowns in international beauty contests – Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Earth. And the Pinoy connection cannot be denied. Apart from looks and names, they themselves have proudly stated their roots.
1) Froken Norge or Miss Universe Norway 2007 Kirby Ann Basken (who also represented the Philippines during Miss Intercontinental 2006)
2) Miss World Denmark 2011 Maya Celeste Padillo Olsen (Conceived in Nepal, born in the Philippines and raised in Denmark, Maya’s second name originated from her grandfather Celestino)
3) Miss Earth Sweden 2016 Cloie Syquia Skarne (we all know that she is the daughter of actor Gabby Concepcion and Jenny Syquia)
4) Miss Belgium 2018 Angeline Flor Pua (she is 100% Pinoy in heritage)
