I’m putting my bets on the six finalists above to win Century Tuna Superbods Nat10n tonight
Tonight at the Palace Pool Club at the Fort, the winners of Century Tuna Superbods Nat10n 2016 will be known. Among the 26 finalists (13 men and 13 women), I have finally decided to put my bets on six (6) of them to have the highest chances of being proclaimed tonight.
Among the male contenders, I short-listed Ali Khatibi, Clint Bondad and Culver Padilla as potential top placers. And from the ladies, my choices have come down to Nancy Leonard, Natalia Lalonde and Olivia Medina.
Ali, Clint and Culver are my choices among the men
It’s not easy trimming down the participants to just a small percentage of the complete line-up. So my forecast is primarily based on what these individuals can offer to the brand for the next twelve (12) months at least. I believe that it is important for Century Tuna to gain extended mileage and public reach beyond good looks and the finals night itself. Evolution is the name of the game now. If health and wellness are prime considerations, then better pick the ones who live and breathe the lifestyle or the ones who can use the as platform to spread awareness outside of the usual target markets.
Nancy, Natalia and Olivia could take it all the way among the ladies
Watch the live stream of the finals tonight. It can be accessed on the Facebook page of Century Tuna Superbods Nat10n
starting at 8:30PM.
For those going to Palace Pool Club, see you there! 😀

Late yesterday afternoon and onwards, a Victory Party was held inside Palace Pool Club in BGC. Mercator Artist and Model Management – led by Jonas Gaffud – hosted the event. There were multiple honorees. First on the list is Ann Colis who was recently crowned Miss Globe 2015 in Toronto, Canada. And then there is Hillarie Danielle Parungao who – just last week – was adjudged Miss World Philippines 2015 and will go to Sanya, China to represent the country in Miss World 2015. Along with her, 1st Princess Cassandra Naidas was also feted for completing a 1-2 finish for Aces & Queens in the said pageant. These three beauties were joined by Mercator’s exclusive talent Richard Juan who stepped out of the Pinoy Big Brother house during one of the latest eliminations.
It was a very happy occasion for everyone involved. Mister World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani was also on hand to join in the celebration and gamely posed for photo ops with Hillarie as the reigning titleholders of their respective affiliated competitions. Beauty queens and fashion models also came and literally made splashes in the cool water of the venue, as only the pool club can deliver.
From all of us here at normannorman.com, congratulations once more to Ann, Hillarie and Cassandra for jobs well done! 😉
Megan during her very recent photoshoot at Palace Pool Club
Just yesterday, Miss World 2013 Megan Young had her photoshoot (left photo
) at the Palace Pool Club for Hola Philippines. This is for the cover of an upcoming issue where…ehem…your blogger has been commissioned to write the accompanying article. This is also the main reason behind my lunch/coffee date
with our Queen last week when we talked about a lot of things – from pageantry to love life to MariMar and all.
I hope you can support the issue (it should be for September, 2015) by getting a copy. I will make a separate post about the actual release of the glossy once it finally hits your favorite newsstands and bookstores.
Meanwhile, I have uploaded the cover of the August, 2015 ish below. 😉
The latest issue of Hola Philippines. Watch out for next month's issue!

During last night’s news on GMA-7’s 24 Oras, it was made known that Ms. Gay Manila 2015 Trixie Maristela will indeed be competing for Miss International Queen 2015 alongside her 2nd Runner-Up Francine Garcia late October to early November in Pattaya, Thailand. And the video above even shows how much supportive her boyfriend Art Sta. Ana is of the endeavor and their relationship as a whole.
But with the welcome news came with a separate unwelcome incident which she experienced at the Valkyrie Super Club last Saturday when she was denied entry to the establishment for not being dressed properly as a man (as indicated in her ID). The not-so-funny thing is that, if her group had a reserved VIP table, then she was told that there will be no problem. In the first place, why the sudden interest in checking out her ID? She does not look like a questionable minor by any stretch of the imagination. Did someone inside tip the people at the security to stop them in their tracks? It wouldn’t be the first time that transgender individuals entered and enjoyed the place without any kind of prevention. Or are they just inviting the bad publicity regardless of the implications? They know fully well that it was just a matter of time before social media gets to feast on the encounter.
As a result, they transferred to Palace Pool Club where there were no hassles at all.
Your thoughts on both the good and not-so-good news, dear readers?

Mercator Artist and Model Management has much to be thankful for. And one way of showing it is to hold a Models’ Night to gather all the beautiful and handsome talents for a night of fun, food, drinks and swimming!
At Valkyrie’s Palace Pool Club in BGC last Friday, Jonas Gaffud was the most gracious host as he welcomed his guests and made sure that every single one of them is having a good time. The list of attendees is long, but part of it includes Bb. Pilipinas beauties Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Christi Lynn McGarry, Ann Colis, Kim Suiza and Cindy Miranda. The models are in full force with the likes of Sam Ajdani, Kurt Viray, Richard Juan, Vince Ferraren, AJ Winkler, Brodie Nero, Tohi Ajdani, Cassandra Naidas, Alaiza Malinao, Jasmine Maierhofer present.
Of course, the members of the working team behind Mercator are accounted for. The mood was all-out partying with a big splash. And nobody went home without getting a little or totally wet. 🙂

Oh, and yes, there was swimming as well.
