[> Subject: Catriona brought it. She's had many naysayers, but the way she competed tonight and all through the long Binibining events and mini competitions, she brought it. So happy for Jehza Mae Huelar for winning the Binibining Pilipinas Supranational crown too!!!

It does seem the Philippines likes to outsource their beauty queens, with whitewashed winners. Probably wouldn't be an issue if it didn't seem to happen so often.

[> [> [> Subject: If Miss USA was won annually by women who are 1/2 Asian, eyebrows would be raised. Of course, if Asian features are what the people of Miss USA want, then they can get that year after year. What I'm sayin is, for a country to repeatedly send representatives that are very obviously not physical representations of their population, it's OK but let's call a spade a spade. The Philippines pageant brass feels they can win with women who don't look Filippino.

How many more representatives have yet to be chosen before the next Miss Universe contest in November? It’s far too early to start hyping her as the next Miss Universe. She is a very pretty girl and a step up from the last couple of representatives for the Philippines.

Thailand also seem to be very keen in getting their third crown. They are riding on a three-peat placement, and I'm sure they would give all their might to secure a fourth one.

Moot point? Exactly. It is stupid as hell. It is 2018. Quit focusing on the ethnic makeup of some girl that don't even live in your country. Are you all an expert of the Philippines or something?

those were his words. Everyone knows, you wanna win Miss Philippines? You gotta have some non-Filipino in you because the pageant feels the more you don't resemble Filipinos the more likely you are to win

[> Subject: I see her as being a very strong contender for the crown. Definitely will be one of the front runners. Her strengths are her personality and speaking ability, aside from a very attractive face. Her weakness is her body. She's thick in the middle, but MU doesn't put as much emphasis on fitness anymore, as we've seen the last couple of years. Personally, I don't like her look now as much as when she competed in Miss World. She's had work done to her teeth and it appears that she's undergone a nose job as well, as it seems to have a higher profile now (points up more). On the plus side she has done a lot of social work, something the new owners of MU are looking for. She could win.

[> Subject: Yes, she can win. She has a legit charitable foundation for her backstory, she has the hair farouk wants, she has the face that IMG wants. BUT it seems she will not win. Poor girl. Everything seems to go against her. Like past filipina beauty queens are up in arms about her. Even Pia's team seems to be in "crown blocking" mode aimed at her. The latinos doesnt need to send wrecking crew to bring her down this year. Pinoys themselves seem to be headed to implosion. The only saving grace for this girl if Philippines host this year's pageant. The fans will rally for her. We might see a Denise Quinones win. Waiting for Paraguay's Stephania Stegman to be crowned or Genisis Davila for a challenger.

[> [> Subject: I saw that!! and its sad that Pia would be so extra to badmouth Catriona to the MUO and tell everybody that she is not a worthy queen, etc. They do NOT get along. But as far as pageants go, Catriona is 100,000,000 times better, prettier, more eloquent and more stunning than Pia, who actually looks like her cleaning lady.

[> [> [> Subject: I follow pageants here in the Philippines and I have not heard of this. Pia has been virtually silent post hosting since she's been promoting her movie, but prior to the pageant, Catriona was one of her faves together with Michele Gumabao (google the articles). It's Pia's camp, not Pia herself, that has distanced themselves from Cat since she's independent. But I've not seen their prominent owners badmouth anyone.
