First off, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2016 Nicole Cordoves is thrilled to the max that she is going to Las Vegas for her competition. She has long wanted to fulfill her pageant mission in the city where: 1) the Philippines got its third Miss Universe crown and 2) the support of Filipino-Americans from East Coast to West Coast all converge in a place where no stones (or cards) are left unturned to insure that they got her back from Day 1.
Actually, as early as two months ago, Nicole already got confirmation from different Filipino groups in the US that they will rally their troops to go to Las Vegas to cheer and push for her potential victory.
And our bet is not sitting on these guarantees. She is faithfully doing her assignment. She knows that she got the speech and Q&A parts in the bag. So right now, she is preparing for explosive presentations a la Miss Universe Pageant. Miss Grand International is known to idolize the said contest so the parallelisms will definitely be felt.
Now you know why she attended her send-off in a yellow gown that brought out her sexiness even more. She knows what MGI wants, and plans to give them the peg that they want on a silver platter.

So who’s betting on Nicole now?😉
To the pride of the Philippines. The Filipina who returned the Miss Universe crown to the country after more than four decades of anticipation. The woman who showed to everyone what strong will and determination can do.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MISS UNIVERSE PIA ALONZO WURTZBACH!
It’s your 26th, and a very memorable celebration for you.
So bring out the noise and let’s hear it for our very special celebrant today!

After Jennifer Hammond, Nicole Cordoves and Kylie Verzosa, can Maxine Medina be far behind? Not at all! Our Miss Universe Philippines 2016 is tantalizingly chic in this latest photo capture from the steady and reliable hands of photographer Raymond Saldaña. And isn’t she just so gorgeous here?
Wearing a Charles Kenneth Anito creation, Maxine exudes supreme beauty that will never go unnoticed. And you know that being host delegate for the next Miss Universe edition has its share of pluses and pressures. But I trust our bet to just compete with herself, more than getting sidetracked by the strong competition.
Keep it up, my dear Maxine!🙂

You all know by now that Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach filmed a TV commercial for Olay Philippines as the latest endorser of Olay Total Effects.
Below is a video of the said TVC. Click now to watch and tell me your reactions.🙂

With the recent bombings in Davao and Polomolok of late, do these scary events give the Miss Universe Organization reason/s to think twice about the hosting of Miss Universe in the country come January 30, 2017? A lot of talks and preparations have already been initialized and completed. People involved are already spinning around trying to cover all bases possible. Is there no turning back? Is it really full steam ahead regardless?
My answer is simple. It will happen. Security may be super tighter than ever before but it will take place. At lot has already been done and everything seems to be falling in the right places regardless of what just happened in the south.
In fact, Okada Manila (video below) has already been reported to be the Official Residence of the 65th Miss Universe candidates – a really plush property if you ask me.

Personally, I am not giving my full thumbs up to the hosting because of expenses and all. But since Casino owners (plus other moneyed sponsors in the private sector) are shouldering the bills, then I cannot be eternally opposed to the expensive beauty extravaganza.
But high-level security will be a concern nobody among the worldwide pageant fans and followers can wrap around their fingers with. The measures will be beyond anything you have ever imagined possible. It should still be all good (with just a slight hint of doubt that can be hopefully dispelled).😉

Just earlier today (Saturday evening in NYC), ASAP Live of ABS-CBN held their weekly show inside Barclays Center in New York with all of their popular artists and loveteams gathering together in a venue filled to the rafters (see photo below).
As scheduled, Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach made a special appearance (as can be watched in the video above) and had every member of the audience as it was also an advance birthday celebration of sorts for our Queen.
I’m pretty sure all of you here in Manila or watching via TFC were able to watch the whole show.🙂
