I watched the Miss Universe beauty pageant live on Fox last night and I had a great time as usual. My two girls watched it with me too which I am glad, it’s a girl thing you know. Who knows one of my girls will be encouraged to become a beauty queen when they grow older. Would really be proud if I have a beauty queen child, haha. Wishful thinking.
Anyway, Rachel Peters is this years Miss Universe contestant representing the Philippines. She is pretty and as usual, half white. Maybe that’s what is the norm these days. They no longer pick someone of pure blooded Filipina to represent the country.
I was rooting for her the entire time, of course. We were happy she got included in the top 16 and 10. But wasn’t able to get in the top 5, which is okay. I still feel proud of her.
Miss South Africa became the Miss Universe 2017, Colombia was first runner up.
Wow it was such an amazing night for all of us, Filipinos! Facebook right now is having a fiesta celebrating the new crowned Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach! I am one proud Filipina here! Finally, we got the crown guys!
Steve Harvey made an honest mistake, read the wrong name instead of saying Miss Colombia to be the first runner-up, he uttered Miss Philippines. He crowns the wrong Miss Universe 2015. The moment was gone, it was all taken from the real winner. It could’ve been a lot thrilling when the host spoke the right name country of the contestant.
But anyway, he admitted his mistake and he apologized. It was shown on cameras THE PHILIPPINES IS TRULY THE WINNER. The crown was handed back to our lady Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach! WAY TO GO PIA, YOU ARE MAKING US VERY PROUD OF YOU!
That precious “shocked” reaction of Pia after Harvey corrected the mistake… wow girl! I wouldn’t know how to react too if I was you.
I know when I see someone who looks pretty and if I like the way a person looks, he or she does look good in my eyes. Watching beauty pageants on t.v is one of my cup of teas to do, Miss America is one of the shows I want to sit down and watch the entire show until the end.
Of all the girls on stage last night, I only found one girl to be stunning and that was Miss Tennessee, she looked like duchess Kate of England. She looked good in her hairdo and makeup, nice slender body especially the thighs. You see, not all of those ladies in the pageant last night were sexy at least in my opinion.
I loved how she looked in her golden yellow gown during the talent portion. Both of my girls exclaimed that she was Princess Belle, which I agree. Only I was not captivated with the way she answered her question. But, she was the only bet I had last night.
Another crown went to the Philippines as Bea Rose Santiago took it home. Looks like this year is the year for Filipina beauty queens to garner the beauty crowns held internationally. Way to go Pinays! Here is a video of Bea Rose of her answer.
She did a pretty good job with confidence answering that very question. I can feel the sincerity of it and it soothes to the hearts of many Filipinos pertaining to the devastating calamity that struck my country a month ago. CONGRATULATIONS BEA ROSE SANTIAGO! You deserve it.

“This is my dream. Thank you Japan for giving it to me,” an ecstatic Bea Rose Santiago said at the event, held late Tuesday in Tokyo.
“I’m going to use my crown and my title to help the victims” of Super Typhoon Haiyan, which raked the Philippines last month, leaving nearly 8,000 people dead or missing.
“So this is actually for my province, and this is for the Philippines.”

This photo was snagged from Miss Universe’s Facebook Page, I don’t own it, it’s not mine.
Here is one example of the beauty contestants in their stunning evening gown during the Preliminary Competition. You can view the full album by liking them on their FB page and look at the full photos during the event. You may also don’t want to miss the most-awaited and grandest beauty pageant in the whole wide world, Miss Universe on NBC, November 9 at 9 PM. So watch out for that.
I am looking forward to watching this event, we will be home by then so I’ll be able to record it on TiVo and just watch it whenever I can. I love beauty pageants like this, it makes me feel uplifted and proud being a woman. I hope Philippines will win the crown. Good luck to her!

Trending on Facebook right now is the newly crowned Miss World 2013 Megan Lynn Young representing my very own country, the Philippines. Congratulations to her. I feel proud of my country and her. She deserves the crown, she is stunning and has a beautiful and sexy body.
I hate the fact that I missed the Miss World 2013 beauty pageant but that doesn’t stop me from knowing that she got the crown among 125 countries who tried to get it too. Seeing this beautiful mixed Filipina makes me wanna dream of my little Megan too becoming one like her someday, somehow. I am excited with that thought, haha. I really hope it will come true or at least she will be discovered and become a t.v personality in the Philippines.
MEGAN YOUNG, YOU MAKE THE WHOLE PHILIPPINES AND FILIPINOS AROUND THE GLOBE SO PROUD OF YOU! CONGRATULATIONS!

Megan Young was crowned Miss World 2013 on Saturday night in Bali, Indonesia, making history as the first-ever Filipino winner of the title since the Philippines’ debut in the pageant in 1966.
I know this post is kind of late but anyway, let me go ahead and say something about the winner of the Miss Universe 2012. I have nothing against the winner. In fact, I am happy she got the crown… but of course I would be much happier if Miss Philippines won the title and got the crown but the judges judged the contestants based on what they saw and how they projected themselves throughout the entire competition.
What I want to say is that, it was a different feeling when the two contestants; Miss Philippines and Miss USA were both left standing on the stage holding hands together and awaiting for that very result the night of December 12th. Those were the two ladies who were both beautiful and from two different countries which I could say I am so proud to belong. It was like the Philippines and the USA were so closed together that they joined hands for minutes.
In my mind, whoever won that night, there would be no hurt feelings for the first runner up because she did what she could in order to win.
First of all, I want to say CONGRATULATIONS TO MISS JANINE TUGONON for winning the First Runner Up in the Miss Universe Pageant last night in Las Vegas. You represented our country so well that made us all very proud of you girl!
I love how you remained poised and calm throughout the entire pageant. I love your simplicity, your beauty and most of all, YOU GOT A BRAIN, GIRL! You are just amazing. I hope you know, YOU ARE THE WINNER TO EVERY FILIPINO, in our hearts and in our eyes, YOU ARE THE WINNER. I appreciate all the hard work and sacrifices you have done in order to climb up to the first runner up place in the pageant. Job well done, shall I say!

I made sure I wouldn’t miss the beauty pageant, Miss USA 2012 and I didn’t. I am happy of Miss Olivia Culpo (20 years old) of Rhode Island for being crowned as Miss USA 2012 beating out a number of beautiful and talented Latinas along the way that include Miss Mississippi Myverick Garcia, Miss Colorado Marybel Gonzalez, Miss New York USA Johanna Sambucini. Congratulations miss. She is beautiful and I loved how she answered her final question.
“Would you feel it would be fair that a transgender woman wins the Miss USA title over a natural-born woman?” asked celebrity judge Rob Kardashian. The question came from a pageant follower on Twitter, a first for the competition.
Culpo didn’t hesitate before embracing the Miss Universe Organization’s recent decision to admit transgender contestants.
And her answer below….
“I do think that that would be fair, but I can understand that people would be a little apprehensive to take that road because there is a tradition of natural-born women, but today where there are so many surgeries and so many people out there who have a need to change for a happier life, I do accept that because I believe it’s a free country,” Culpo said.
