Tomorrow, the Preliminary Competition of Miss Supranational 2018 will take place in Poland. And our Miss Supranational Philippines Jehza Huelar is definitely up in her game plan. She is getting favorable reviews from most everyone in the host city of Karpacz. With the momentum on her side, she will present herself to the judges oozing with confidence and determination to become our 2nd big winner in the contest. Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul is present and I am sure she will give our Queen a few precious tips on how to do better in her performance.
In all the photos above, Jehza Huelar is looking edgy and gorgeous in Mark Neto Diaz shots wearing a Mark Tamayo “Toile de Juoy” dress with Bragais heels. And below, she slips into a Yong Davalos swimwear ensemble.

As early as the 4th Quarter of 2017, talks are already spreading that Gerhard Von Lipinski – CEO and Producer of the Miss Supranational Pageant – is seriously eyeing the hosting of the 2018 edition in our shores – the Queen City of the South to be exact. Early negotiations may have already been made, but nothing is set in stone as of yet.
If we do the math, the logistics of the entire hosting and production will be massive. Just think of bringing in both Miss Supranational and Mister Supranational in, and the cost will be almost double. And it’s no joke making a serious commitment to take charge of everything from a host country’s perspective.
Reigning Miss and Mister Supranational titleholders Jenny Kim and Gabriel Correa
Now if we look from the angle of our representative’s chances of winning a 2nd Miss Supranational crown, then Jehza Huelar won’t stand a significant favor of doing so if she was to be a host delegate. Aside from another Asian (Jenny Kim of Korea) being the reigning titleholder, I am inclined to think that the pageant owners won’t sit well with the thought of having the host country as her successor. 1st Runner-Up at best. Besides, Miss Supranational has definitely changed from the time Mutya Datul won in Belarus. It has grown more profitable and familiar so the judgment calls have become more relatively “layered”, so to speak. We can’t deny the fact that it has already benefitted much in terms of popularity when a Filipina became the first Asian to win the crown. So the running cycle could still be more distant from “reaching full circle”.
If you ask me, I’d rather see Jehza as a traveling candidate this year so that she can have a more enriching reign, regardless of where the 10th Edition will be held. Now if my considerations for a Cebu hosting are proven wrong and Gerhard ends up doing business with another country – or going back to Poland for that matter – then the fate of our bet might also turn out the same. 1st Runner-Up or Top 5 at best. Just a cut better than what Chanel Olive Thomas achieved last year.
How about you, dear readers? Please share your inputs.
Here are clear photos taken by the organizers on the victory of Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita “Win-Wyn” Marquez and her court composed of Virreina Akisha Albert of Curacao, Primera Finalista Lais Berte of Brazil, Segunda Finalista Victoria D’Ambrosio of Venezuela, Tercera Finalista Karla Berumen of Mexico and Quarta Finalista Katherine Añazgo of Bolivia.
Let us now see the graduation rise of the Reina Hispanoamericana brand globally the way Filipinos have helped jack up the popularity of Miss Supranational when Mutya Datul won in Belarus past 2013.
Can 2013 be repeated this year?
I don’t remember making any kind of birthday wishes last August when I celebrated mine. And I’m really not in the conscious habit of making an annual list of wishes for our world-class Beauty Queens. But with the win of Kylie Verzosa as Miss International 2016, the promising chances of the beautiful Joanna Eden in Miss Supranational 2016 and the even more promising possibility of the uber gorgeous Catriona Gray grabbing Miss World 2016, I simply cannot pass up on elevating my positivity and wishing for a repeat of what happened last 2013.
One-third of the equation has already been successfully covered. We shall see if the second puzzle piece will fit on December 2 in Poland and the last one completes the picture on December 18 in National Harbor, Maryland.

Oooohhh, I am just so loving the potential scenario. If Bea Rose Santiago, Mutya Datul and Megan Young were able to do it three years ago, I don’t see why Joanna and Catriona can add up to Kylie’s victory and pull off a 2013 all over again. And let’s sweeten it up even more. Why don’t we add the potential win of Mutya ng Pilipinas Justine Mae San Jose in Miss Tourism International 2016 just like Angela Dione Gomez in Kuala Lumpur during the same period.
The dates are approaching very near. Joanna will be leaving next week for Slovakia to start with her assignment, while Catriona will go to the US on November 24. Time to buckle up soon!
Have a good Sunday rest, dear readers! 😉
P.S. I already relayed your request for Cat to record a song in Tagalog. Here’s her reply:
“Hi Tito Norman!! Hope you’re well also!! I’ll see if I can fit in a recording session because I’m hectic right now with preparations leading up to the 24th 😘💕”
This batch of winners produced a Miss Universe, a Miss International, a Miss Supranational and a Miss Universe 3rd Runner-Up

Ever since Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach won our 3rd Miss Universe crown, it makes any Throwback Thursday post for Bb. Pilipinas Gold even sweeter. The five winners contributed separately to the equivalent of a golden haul of victories with one Miss Universe, one Miss International and one Miss Supranational. Add to that a 3rd Runner-Up finish at Miss Universe and a Top 10 placement in Miss Tourism International Queen and the values become even greater.
It makes you think about the positive benefits of re-joining because experience and maturity really add up to the more progressive disposition of a determined candidate. Nowadays, being 25 is the most ideal age to want to win Miss Universe Philippines.

The Bb. Pilipinas 2013 winners produced a Miss Universe, a Miss International, a Miss Supranational, a Miss Universe runner-up and a Top 10 MTQI finisher!
Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was the only winner in the Top 5 of Bb. Pilipinas 2013 who was not issued crown jewels being the sole runner-up. But it must have been written in the stars that she will eventually win and wear the best one after two years – the Miss Universe DIC art deco-inspired gems itself.
But there is more to Pia’s win that made the titleholders of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more special. It produced our 5th Miss International (Bea Rose Santiago), our first Miss Supranational (Mutya Johanna Datul) and a Miss Universe runner-up (Ariella Arida). In addition, this batch had the last recorded Philippine paricipant in Miss Tourism Queen International with Cindy Miranda placing in the Top 10. Tally-wise, this quintet edged out the equally-successful 2012 counterpart simply because it had more victories than top placements. It also eclipsed the reigning group in terms of collection.
Let us now reminisce on the crowning moments of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more than two years ago. 🙂
