And it was obvious that all three ladies had a good time in the event.
It’s the best beauty queen job of all, and Paulina Vega is living the good life to the fullest.
Aside from a well-appointed Trump apartment in Manhattan, she gets to make celebrity appearances in the US as well as travel to different countries (like Djakarta where she helped crown the national winner) in style and with VIP treatment to boot.
Watch the video below which followed Paulina during her first week as Miss Universe, and tell me if it’s indded one of the most enviable jobs every year.
This Colombian is one lucky girl. 😉

A news article that was published by El Nuevo Dia had quoted Miss Universe Paulina Vega saying that Donald Trump told her the next edition will be held in China, and that she will be thrilled by crowning her successor there.
Do we now take this bit of news as fact, rumor or an unconfirmed slip of the tongue? You see, the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) always makes it a point to release an official statement, however belated the important update is. So for now, let’s take this information as a strong possibility.
If confirmed by the right sources, what signal could that be sending to BPCI? Will an oriental-looking Binibini be favored? Or would a mestiza or mixed-race beauty get the upper hand? And just to spice things up, will a possible hosting of China mean closing the door to a real Pinay-looking rep? 🙂
To say that Gabriela and Megan are tough acts to follow would be an understatement.
The 63rd Miss Universe Paulina Vega Dieppa of Colombia and Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss of South Africa have the demanding work cut out for them. With their respective predecessors serving reigns that were considered more than successful in terms of appearances, international causes/charity and positive sustenance of the crown and brand name for more than 365 days, the challenge now is to exceed the efforts and make both Donald Trump and Julia Morley happier bosses. That won’t be too much of a difficult mission to accomplish, right?
Call me quick to judge at this point. But methinks Rolene will meet the expectations more handily than Paulina.
It is a proven fact that the South African has one of the most wonderful down-to-earth personalities during the competition in London last year. On the other hand, the Colombian has been rumored to have a recurring diva attitude that even Mr. Trump allegedly anticipates to border on being an all-around b**ch.
What do you think, dear readers? 😉
As we close another complete chapter of international pageantry with the crowning of the 63rd Miss Universe Paulina Vega a week ago, allow me to reminisce on the Philippine participation in the same, with focus on the achievements we have made.
Yesterday, I gathered from reliable sources that Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean ‘MJ’ Lastimosa actually finished 6th overall (how heartbreaking!) in the competition. She lost by a mere 0.625 of a point to Yasmin Verheijen of the Netherlands going into the Top 5.
Now if only she entered the magic circle and notched 2nd Runner-up at least in Miami, then the country would’ve already conquered all possible placements in our favorite beauty pageant.

First off, l only considered the predictions sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and with corresponding address and contact details. So for those who posted theirs as a reply in one of the blog announcements about “Predict the 63rd Miss Universe Pageant and her 4 Runners-up”, I did not include your guesses anymore. Sorry.
Among the four hundred eighteen (418) emailed entries, nobody got all the five correct placements right. When I was checking all the predictions, I separated all the ones with Miss Colombia Paulina Vega as winner. And there were only eleven (11). From this small bunch, the runners-up were all misses in rankings. But one actually had Miss USA Nia Sanchez as her 1st Runner-up.
And so, the winner of our prediction contest is Venus L. Otomo from Cavite. She is now the proud owner of a brand new Zenfone 5 and P1,500 shopping voucher from Bench (I had to switch from SM Store due to a small glitch). I already emailed Venus about the win and hopefully, she can drop by the office in Makati to pick up the prizes.
