This is just the first batch of #KF2018 for BbP2018
This coming 2018, Kagandahang Flores will field a good number of trained and polished ladies who will screen for Bb. Pilipinas 2018. The photo above – showing ladies doing the mirror exercise at the KF Camp – is just the first batch of their aspirants for the nationals.
Soon, you will get to know them, see their faces and catch their names. Camp Head Rodgil Flores (shown below during his awarding as one of the Philippine Empowered Men of 2017) promised me a good sneak peek of their #KF2018 bets.
Watch out for their identities soon, dear readers!
Time to turn the tables around on Tito Rodgil Flores! He has gotten so used to seeing off his beauty queens at the airport to bid them good luck. Now, it’s his send-off moment at the NAIA International Terminal 2 for his Philippine Airlines flight to Los Angeles from where he will be driven straight to Las Vegas.
Here are his Final thoughts on Rachel before boarding time:
“I can’t help but get quite emotional thinking how Rachel’s pageant journey has turned out to be…I can vividly remember when I first saw her 3 years ago. I knew right then and there that she was destined for greater things.
After our initial meeting (thanks to Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2004 Maricar Balagtas Arciaga), I did not waste time convincing her relentlessly to try pageantry here in the country and the rest is history.
I feel so excited for Rachel. Seeing her on the Miss Universe stage gives me this feeling of being more than just a mentor but also a father brimming with pride.
I love Rachel dearly! Whatever the outcome will be, she has given us so much pride! Rachel will always be my Miss Universe!”
Have a good flight, Tito Rodgil! And may you have a very fruitful first trip to the US! Give Rachel hugs and kisses for me!!! 🙂
You all know NY now that Toni Alyessa Hipolito underwent the most unique reign of an international beauty competition when she was offered the 2016 crown of Miss Globe International which did not take place during its intended dates late last year. She accepted the appointment inspite of not having a crowning moment to look back to. Neither did she enjoy any luxury of travel in the process.
But now she will. Formally as the reigning titleholder.
Yesterday afternoon, a Meet-and-Greet Press Conference was held at Scatter MNL where members of the media were informed of the upcoming departure for Anatolia, Turkey to crown her successor in the 2017 edition next month. In fact, she is very likely to spend Christmas abroad. And she doesn’t mind. After all, she waited long enough for this moment. She was promised to be given her cash prize for being the 2016 appointee, plus a collection of jewelry to come with it.
Present during the event were Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina, Rodgil Flores and Gio Lazaro Flores of KF plus Officers and members of JCI International who sponsored the Presscon.

Now that the cat is out of the bag, there is no use pretending we don’t know what’s really happening. Above is a photo of (left to right) Miss International 2017 Kevin Lilliana, Miss Earth 2017 Karen Ibasco and Miss Grand Indonesia 2017 DEA Rizkita during their KF trainings.
There is mutual respect between Filipino and Indonesian beauty queens so we should not make it an earth-shaking (no pun intended) issue that they trained here. The latter respect our expertise in the pageant industry. And whatever they learned in our shores are not CIA-protected secrets that nobody outside the country knows. From their end, it is a kind of validation of what they already know or what they might know.
Fate also plays a big part in the mix. If they won their respective competitions abroad, then it is in their destiny to claim it.
Of course, there are other “hard-to-classify” factors nobody among us (including KF) are no longer in control of or privy to. And I won’t go discussing about matters I have no factual basis for.
Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters did not travel with just the luggage you can see in the photos above. There’s more if you will. The rest won’t fit the frame, though.
Seriously, I want our girl to do extremely well in Vegas. And I know she will! The place is good for our delegate, and with the support coming from the Fil-Ams all over the US (plus those who will fly from the Philippines), the cheers and constant adulation she is bound to receive should be more than enough to sustain the cloud that will lift her to the 9th level till November 26.
I was also sounded off on other things that could be beneficial to the bid of our Queen while in Vegas. But I am not at liberty to even blog about the same because, well, they are just sound-offs with a dash of speculation.
Let us support Rachel all the way so that the country’s winning streak will continue.
