Miss Universe 2016 in Belize?

“Dear [Steve Harvey], we all make mistakes. You handled yours with class. Would you host our next [Costa Maya] pageant?” the BTB had tweeted on Monday evening, December 21. Steve Harvey liked the BTB’s tweet.

“I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not”

"Back in College when I was still a Nursing student, I’ve engaged into community services. At first I thought, ah, this is just for fun and for our compliance. However, as time progresses I realized this is something crucial. What’s more interesting is that I even got a chance to study, plan and implement nursing education to a family and also to the community. A total awareness I say. It opened my eyes about what is a community in general.

If I win and be chosen as Mr United Continents Philippines 2016, I will take advantage of the opportunity to take part of one’s life and teach everyone, if not, influence them in addressing concerns in a community like environmental issues, family planning, malnutrition by using my knowledge that I acquired back in College which has proven to be more efficient based on Nursing independent interventions. And also I would like to make sure that I will have fun on this event, before, d…

Mister United Continents Philippines 2016: Come back is Real!

Yes! It's confirmed, Kevin Dale Jovellano will be participating in this year's Mister United Continents Philippines 2016. This is his second attempt to clinch one of the titles after he failed to enter the semis last year. We're hoping that Kevin will maintain his momentum leading up to the finals.

Winning the local tilt is his goal for him to compete on an international stage. But competing against new faces doesn't guarantee his advantage. Well, who knows he is more confident and relax this time.

Miss World Zimbabwe search begins

"All contestants from our previous editions or anyone who got into boot camp last year is not welcome, especially those who walked on the ramp on the finale. We want to give new faces a chance."

Harare auditions for Miss World Zimbabwe starts today until Saturday and from February 25-27 at the Miss Zimbabwe Trust head offices in Highlands.

Running under the theme "Celebrating the life of our Icon Kiki Divaris", the finale will be on April 16 at the Borrowdale Brooke Golf Course where reigning queen Annie-Grace Mutambu will crown her successor.

Contestants who have nude photos or sex tapes are not allowed to join. Past two winners of the Miss World Zimbabwe contest had to step down when their nude photos and videos surfaced all over the internet. Contestants had to sign a declaration that they had never posed for nudes. And this is also the reason why the organisers look for new faces and will not allow previous contestants and anyone who walked the runway to join t…
