Mister United Continents Philippines 2015: Early Top 17

By: Aamir Dungog

          I would be having a bias picks since I haven't met the candidates from Visayas and Mindanao yet though some of them made it on my list I still give more emphasis on the candidates that I met already. I am just being honest but surely this will change as soon as I meet the candidates from VizMin.

Bon Quinto is my top pick so far. With his height, chinito looks and good physique no way that the judges would just ignore him, adding up to that is his personality, courage and determination in winning the top plum.

Rickson Logaspi. I met him during the Fashion Show for A Cause of Mister United Continents Philippines which I and Niel ( One of TPQ Admins ) covered the event. I can say that he is just a powerful force every time he set foot on stage.

Danilo Magtoto Jr./Basti Gomez. You won't find him attractive unless you met him. He is one of the most prepared candidates.

Rey Cataluña. Devilishly handsome is the best phrase that I would use to describe him. Tha…

Miss Universe Japan 2015, Ariana Miyamoto: Isn't Japanese enough

Ariana Miyamoto was crowned earlier this month is half Japanese and half African-American. She was born and raised in Nagasaki and can speak fluent Japanese.

Miyamoto is the most talk-about beauty queen right now. She has been gaining attention since she was crowned Miss Universe Japan 2015. Critics were saying she's not a Japanese.

“She has too much black blood in her to be Japanese,” one borderline racist critic posted online, according to Japan’s RocketNews24.

“Even though she’s Miss Universe Japan, her face is foreign no matter how you look at it!” another wrote on Twitter, according to a translation by the Washington Post.

But Ariana had to defend herself. In her first interview after winning the top spot in the contest, the biracial beauty explained that while she doesn’t “look Japanese,” she is truly a representative of the country and the culture. She’s a master of Japanese calligraphy, grew up in Nagasaki and returned to the country after living in the U.S. for high …

The economic crisis affecting the country has also affected the main Venezuelan oil industry after: The Miss Venezuela.
And is that, according to the words of the "Czar of Beauty", Osmel Sousa, this year the Miss Venezuela only will crown two queens, the Miss Venezuela Miss Universe and Miss Venezuela for Miss International, apart from Miss Venezuela World that will be chosen in competition apart by demands of Miss World Organization.
Apparently, there is no budget to be sending more queens to other competitions and this year the "victim" of the Venezuelan precarious economic …

Bencelle Bianzon is the new Miss Philippines Earth-Fire 2014

There's no press release yet from the Miss Philippines Earth Org or/and Carousel Production but from an Instagram post by Miss Philippines Earth-Air 2014, Kim Covert they welcome Bencelle Bianzon as the new Miss Philippines Earth-Fire 2014.

If we are going to base on that post, then we can assume that Bianca Paz is no longer the Miss Philippines Earth-Fire title holder.

Well, the lest we can do for now is wait for the formal announcement from the org.

It is again the time of the year where the most beautiful women in every corners of the country will battle out for the Bb. Pilipinas crowns.

The road to the crown become tougher and tougher every year as it gives intense pressure where every year Philippine delegates to international competition has been performing so well.
