Who will be the next Miss World Australia 2016?



Miss World Australia 2016 has officially launched! The winner will have the opportunity to compete at Miss World 2016.

The reigning Miss World Australia is Tess Alexander from Brisbane, Queensland. She represented her country at the 2015 Miss World Pageant in London where she made the TOP 10.

Two Australian representatives have won the Miss World title, in 1968 and 1972.

There are no longer swimsuits on the catwalk in Miss World Australia, a pageant boosting its charity focus under the new national director, Deborah Miller, who believes in the event’s motto, “Beauty with a Purpose”.

"Miss World Australia’s mission is beauty with a purpose. Beauty as a means to an end versus beauty for the sake of beauty itself Our contestants will participate along a journey of development, of a philanthropic mindset and heart space. That’s the difference between Ourselves and other pageants", Miller said.

Iceland will return to Miss Universe pageant

Ingibjorg Egilsdottir, Miss Iceland Universe 2009


Iceland will return to the Miss Universe pageant this year! Organizers of the newly formed “Miss Universe Iceland” met with members of the Miss Universe Organization to confirm their return.

The winner will be chosen later this year and will represent Iceland at Miss Universe 2016. The last time Iceland participated at Miss Universe was in 2009 with the gorgeous Ingibjorg Egilsdottir who placed in the Top 15.

Anna Geirsdóttir, Miss Universe 1962’s first runner-up.

The competition has been carried out since 1950; in the first year it was called Miss Reykjavík (Ungfrú Reykjavík). Since 1955, the contest has taken place under the current name Miss Iceland. There are six regional preliminary contests in each of the five rural regions and in the capital Reykjavík. 20 to 24 candidates, three to four from each region, take part in the finals.

To date Iceland’s biggest achievement in the Miss Universe competition is when Anna Geirsdóttir won first runner-up during the Miss Universe 1962 pageant.

Miss World Australia 2013 Erin Holland goes POP




Miss World Australia 2013 Erin Holland has formed an unlikely alliance with pop rock singer Krystie Steve, performing together covering Conrad Sewell’s chart topping hit Firestone.


Holland, 27, who picked up the Oceania Continental Queen award at Miss World 2013, is keen to experiment with her musical abilities and hopes to surprise a few people with her latest work, which strays from the classical styles she is known for, and which she showcased at Miss World in Bali.

Speaking about her collaborator on this track, Holland said “She’s pretty much the opposite to me in every which way. She’s got a really fierce look. She’s an incredible singer but is self taught. In a crazy way, our voices complemented each other which you wouldn’t have thought considering we come from such different backgrounds musically.”

Puerto Rico's former Miss Universe 2016 was briefly admitted to a psychiatric hospital after losing the crown




Kristhielee Caride who was stripped of her crown as Miss Universe Puerto Rico due to an attitude problem told Univision that she was admitted into a psych 'coz of devastation.

"This situation hit me very hard, I can tell you I got some help because a dark depression came over me. I’m not eating, but it is something that I have controlled,” Caride told Univision.

Caride won the rights to represent Puerto Rico to Miss Universe pageant four months ago but lost her crown last March 17 after she rebuffed the press, telling that she doesn't like cameras.

Desiree Lowry, Miss Universe Puerto Rico national director was embarrased by this incident and said that Caride damaged the her organization.

Now, Caride has plans to sue the organization that turned on her, "(I feel) betrayed by the organization because there was never a moment that I disrespected them," she told Univision. "There wasn't a reason for them to do what they did to me." She also said, she has gotten her depression 'under control'.

Earlier this week Brenda Santiago, Caride's mother said that they will their "truth" to Puerto Rico. She share on Facebook that her daughter's emotional health was her priority.  "If my children fall, the world crumbles for me," she wrote.



Caride apologized to her fans in a Facebook note earlier this month and revealed she had been having personal problems in the day leading up to the interview.

"Beauty queens are not exempt from having a bad day," she wrote in Spanish. "I allowed my feelings to get in the way of my work. It is human to err, it is also courageous to recognize our errors and I want to continue being an example of a real woman with purpose that maintains their head held high before all adversity that happens in life."

She also said that she did not agree with the decision of the org., but she accepted it "with didgnity".

"I will always remember the night of November 12, 2015. When I won the title, and all the experiences and lovely memories of having been crowned Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2016."

Bb. Pilipinas 2016: Week 5 Power Rankings ( Special Edition Picks: MUCP 2016 Candidates' Choices )

From the very start of the competition up to this point almost same girls were heavy favorites to win a Binibining Pilipinas crown in almost all hotpicks released by different pageant sites. And these girls were pretty consistent to please their supporters. With this, we come up and decided to have a special edition picks for our Week 5 Power Rankings.

We are a site which caters to everyone and this time we would like to get a modern man's perspective and who would be better to give it but the handsome candidates of Mister United Continents Philippines 2016. We had them look at the 40 Binibinis' photos and bio and asked to provide their Top15. The boys took everything into account, not just the photos but also their pageant knowledge and personal encounters with the girls themselves.

And here are the 15 lovely and gorgeous binibinis picked by the MUCP 2016 contestants.



Topping in our week 5 picks who caught the attention of MUCP 2016 contestant is, Edjelyn Gamboa. She keeps on proving that she's worthy for a crown and a threat to her binibini sisters. Having trained by one of the country's topnotch camp - Aces and Queens, no wonder she's in it to win it.

However, another Aces and Queens girl has always been consistent being on top. Kylie Verzosa came in really prepared. Her aura and elegance and attitude will surely help her winning a Binibining Pilipinas crown. Not to be ignored is another A&Q girl, Maxine Medina, she is the silent killer of this batch and can be considered as one of the best.

In the fourth place is Kimberle Penchon, considered as one of the strong girls from Aces and Queens. Making it to the top 5 is KF's flag bearer Nichole Manalo. Nichole is making sure that she will win one of the crowns and she's really proving it. Her undeniably sophisticated look and aura with her previous experience will certainly help her win. She's indeed on her way to the crown.

Next in our list is RL's Angel lone entry, Angelique Celine De Leon. Angee is making wave and doing her best to be the first RLs Angel to win a Binibining Pilipinas crown. Sure enough, this girl deserves a spot and a crown!

Coming next is, Paula Rich Bartolome who has that unique look,  model-beauty queen. A sure spot in the top 15 is a no way out for her.

In the eight spot is the sister of Mutya ng Pilipinas-World 1978, Louvette Hammond who won Miss Talent during Miss World 1978. Jennifer Hammond who stands at 5'8 is a no beginner in the world of pageantry. Her experience is a sure bullet to help her place in this year's Binibining Pilipinas pageant.

Placing ninth is a Bulakenya beauty, a teacher and one of JDV's strong girls in the competition. Candy Del Castillo fills in one of the spot from those who were disqualified and it's no easy. But, she is making sure that she deserves what she got, and she is deserving to be binibini 6.

Also on top is Joanna Eden of KF, whose beauty speaks louder than her actions. She has this undeniable wow factor which help her to be easily noticed.

Rounding up our top 15 are;

11. Alexndra Faith Garcia
12. Kristine Estoque
13. Maria Gigante
14. Dindi Joy Pajares
15. Jeslyn Santos

Miss Grand International 2015, Anea Garcia was stripped of her crown


Yesterday we have received a news that Anea Garcia was dethroned due to unprofessional behaviour, and Claire Elizabeth Parker of Australia will take over the crown according to the pageant organizers.

The Miss Grand International Organization announces that Anea Garcia is no longer the title holder of the pageant. Australia's Claire Elizabeth Parker will take over Anea's reign. 
"With immediate effect, Miss Anea Garcia will step down from her position as Miss Grand International 2015 due to being unable to fulfill and follow the contractual agreement with Miss Grand International Organization."

The Miss Grand International Org., posted the announcement on its official Facebook page welcoming Parker as the new Miss Grand International. However, there's a press release coming from some pageant website that the Vice-President of Miss Grand International Org., sent them a letter of clarification and reasons of what made them take the decision.

“Although we believe Anea was the deserving winner at MGI coronation event, she has failed to fulfill her obligations as the reigning queen. First, her studies were in the way, making it very hard for us to schedule her activities. At several times we had to reschedule, cancel events, change or lose international flights. Miss Grand International should be ready and focused on her job and charitable work.

In addition, she has also become very demaning, always asking for things which were not promised or part of the contact she signed, including bringing her grandmother to Bangkok, to live with her. She demanded for additional services which truly made no sense.

Her actions were disrespectful to the organisation and Mr Nawat does not appreciate this kind of attitude, which brought us to make this decision.

Claire Elizabeth Parker is very happy and ready to take over the duties as Miss Grand International 2015. She will move to Thailand shortly and we will hold a press conference on April 1st for her official crowning. We expect Claire to vist at least 7 or 8 countries as Miss Grand International and we are sure that she will suit the title properly and do an excellent job.

We take this opportunity to inform that soon we will also announce the host country for Miss Grand International 2016.

This is the truth and we have nothing to hide, so please publish it”.

Miss Grand International (MGI) is a Thailand-based pageant founded by Nawat Itsaragrisil in 2013. According to the information on the pageant's website, the competition aims "to become the world's leading international beauty contest under sponsorship from governments and organizations that will make a stand for the betterment of humanity." The pageant also promotes peace through their Stop The War And Violence campaign.

TPQ EXCLUSIVE: GETTING TO KNOW JERSON CORULLO, MISTER UNITED CONTINENTS PHILIPPINES - GUINOBATAN, ALBAY

“Everything happens for a reason.”

"I want to be Mister United Continents Philippines 2016 because I want to make my mother proud of me. She had been through a lot and my winning will definitely make her proud and happy. Second, I want to make history to be the first Albayano to win in a national pageant and represent our country in an international competition. But most of all, I want to win in order to inspire others who were like me in the beginning – shy and reserved, that they too can be anyone that they dream to be."




Tell us a little about yourself, your family background, education?

My name is Jerson Corullo. I am 20 years old from the Province of Albay. I am a second year student at the Tiwi Community College taking up Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in Mathematics. I am the sixth child in a family of 8. My mother single handedly raised us because my father passed away when I was only six years old. Being one of the boys in the family, I took on some roles of my father when I was growing up, like helping in the farm, drying palay, feeding the livestock and a lot of other manual and hard labor to help my mother.

How did you become interested in pageants?

Actually, I was practically forced to join pageants. I think it was fate that brought me in this situation although I started to like it when I started the training and coaching with my mentors. The exposure, the different people you meet and my personality dramatically improved. It is fascinating.

How does it feel to represent Guinobatan, Albay in Mister United Continents Philippines 2016?

I feel so happy, blessed and proud to represent Guinobatan, Albay in this national pageant. I am truly honored.

Give three adjectives that your friends would use to describe you.

First, humble. Second, kind. And third, simple.

Tell us about one life-changing experience in your life.

The one life changing experience in my life was when I won the Lakan ng Kalakhang Guinobatan 2015. I made history being the every first winner and automatically qualified as official candidate to Mister United Continents Philippines 2016. It opened a lot of opportunities for me. I had the opportunity to travel, met new friends, worked with some professionals and in the process changed my attitude and perspective in life. Now, I have become slightly sociable and interested to mingle with different kinds of people.

Name three things that you would never do.

The three things I’ll never do are: First, I’ll never stop believing, Second I’ll never stop hoping and third, I’ll never stop loving.

What do you like to do for fun?
  
For fun, I’d like to travel to different places. I do hope that one of these days I could bring my family out of the country.

What would constitute a "perfect" evening for you?

A perfect evening for me is spending it at home resting after a hard day’s work in the farm or in school. It is at home that I find comfort and security.

Tell us a little bit about Guinobatan, Albay.

Aside from Mayon Volcano, I am proud to tell you that the people in my province are very hospitable. Guinobatan is home to the famous Guinobatan Longganisa. Also it is the home of the last Bicolano General Simeon A. Ola to surrender to the Japanese during World War II. It is a peaceful place to live in with scenic views.
How will you motivate others to practice sustainable living choices? 

The only way I can motivate others to practice sustainable living choices is to lead by example. I have gained quite a number of followers and by practicing sustainable living choices myself, I am certain that they would follow suit. This small group can create a ripple effect and hopefully become huge as each of us inspire and encourage others by example.

How would you describe your advocacy to the judge? 

As a future teacher, I am an advocate of learning for the underprivileged. It is hard nowadays to get a formal education because of the high cost of living and education. It pains me in seeing children on the streets and not in school. It is for these street children that my heart goes out to. I would like to spearhead a reading program, build a library and ask some friends to volunteer either as readers or teachers. Of course, this can be easily realized with the help of other people and the support of the local government.

Boxers or Briefs? 

I like boxers because it is comfortable to wear. It is sexy but not too revealing.

Blue or Pink?

Pink because real men wear pink. (Wink. Wink.)

Piolo Pascual or Derek Ramsay?

Derek because of his strong personality.

Anne Curtis or Angel Locsin?

Angel because she is a true Filipina beauty.

Message to your supporters, friends and family?
 Thank you to all of you. I want you to know that all my sacrifices for this pageant are nothing compared to your trust prayers and belief in what I can do. Thank you for the friendships – old, new and renewed ones. I love you all.

I believe that this pageant would be my pulpit for my advocacy, to inspire individuals to become one and to represent our country with noble deeds."



Tell us about yourself, family background, education?

I am Jay Daniel Chuong , 23 years old from Davao City. I'm the 5th of the 7 children of Helario and Julieta. My Father passed away years ago. I was raised by our loving Mother who taught me to be courageous, how to become a good and responsible man, and to never let go of my dreams.

I took Information Technology in college, but an undergraduate due to financial shortage. So I'm just  hoping to get lucky by pursuing business in the world of trade. I'm also a functioning and concerned member of SAGIP KAGUBATAN PARA SA KINABUKASAN CORP. since 2009. This is a non profit organization leading an endeavor to invigorate the forests and to preserve our Mother Earth.

How did you become interested in pageants?

It all started years ago when I entered modelling. My hope and passion in this pageant is to gain more certainty and to boost my professional structure so I can constitute more opportunities, personally and others in the future. Mister United Continents Philippines pageant is also a competent means for me for my advocacy for social awareness to various social concerns and disputes that need our attention and become more apprehensive and responsive to the problems in the society where we live in.

It's a tremendous honor to represent Davao City, It's a noble luxury. Aside from being clean, progressive and modern, Davao City is steadily described as one of the safe cities in the Philippines.

Give three adjectives that your friends would best describe you?

Compassionate, Generous and Trustworthy

Tell us about life-changing experience in you life.

One of my unforgettable and life- changing experience is when we hiked at Mount Maranat ( 6 hours walk ) to see our indigenous people. This mountain is part of the Sierra Madre mountain. And then there was rain, unwieldy rain! A flash flood and absurd thunderstorms arose. We weren't ready for this kind of situation and we couldn't go back because the only way out was to cross the river but the river is almost like overflowing. We stayed overnight and observed if there's any possibility for a safe exit. Unfortunately, there was none. We starved because we ran out of food. I learned from this experience on how to be prepared at all times. And to be contented of what we have and be happy in our lives. Our indigenous people are living in the mountains, the only food they have are those in their yards , no fancy, but a very simple life.

Name three things that you never do.

To compare myself with others
To take someone's life
And to hurt the love of my life

What do you like to do for fun?

I am a simple man who loves simple things in the world. Doing something enjoyable, not just about myself but it's about helping and assisting others that needs my service. If some people like clubbing, I like volunteering, that's what is fun for me.

What would constitute a "perfect" evening for you?

With my Family , an evening spent with a nice dinner with excellent service, long walk under the stars, all accompanied by scintillating conversation, and ending up in a comfortable bed with lots of pillows and soft sheets.

With my future, a candlelit dinner, soft music, pleasant conversation, hands holding and soft kisses. That makes a perfect evening for me. ( giggles )

How will you motivate others to practice sustainable living choices?

Motivating others to practice a sustainable living is an integrated part of our daily lives. Be a bright example and inspire people with your exceptional performance.

How would you describe your advocacy to the judges?

Climate change is one of the greatest concern where all of us should give an urgent attention. Our Mother Earth is desperately crying for help. I would like to take actions on my advocacy which is reforestation, for it has potential to relief and preserve endangered species and forests against global climate change.

Boxers or Brief?

I would choose brief. Briefs are comfy and offer a lot of support and due to the elasticity it could keep your private at a greater temperature, and do not punch up like boxers. But in today's trend, there's BOXER BRIEFS made for men, it's the utmost male underwear. You can race and cross fences without worry of strangulation, and if you get lucky - the girl will be in awe of your likely and physique.

Blue or Pink?

BLUE, is the color that best describes me. A color that seeks peace and tranquility above everything else.

Piolo Pascual or Derek Ramsay?

Derek, aside from being a good actor he promotes Men's fitness and health as well. A good and respectful man that always speaks good about his exes. A man that truly respects a woman.

Anne, an award winning actress, television host, recording artist, name it, she got it all. She have a good generous heart and a lovely smile .

TPQ EXCLUSIVE: GETTING TO KNOW EMERSON COSME, MISTER UNITED CONTINENTS PHILIPPINES - IMUS, CAVITE

"What you are is God's gift to you.What you become is your gift to God."

I want to be Mister United Continents Philippines  2016 because I want to share my talents and be a role model for every Filipino. Pilipinong may puso sa Diyos, bayan at kapwa. Handang maging instrumento ng pagiging tunay at totoong tao.



Tell us a little about yourself, your family background, education?

I'm Emerson C. Cosme, 21 years of age, from Imus, Cavite. I am the youngest among the 5 siblings. My hobbies are dancing and singing. I went to Tanzang Luma Elementary School when I was 7 years old. Those 6 years were the happiest time in my memory. I spent my high school at Gen.Emilio Aguinaldo National High School. I took HRM at Cavite State University but I was not able to finish my course.

How did you become interested in pageants?

When I was in college I joined Mr. NCST (National College Of Science Technology 2011 ) - and I won the title. I became interested in pageants because of my friends. My friends believed that I have potential and they look at it as a great opportunity for me.

How does it feel to represent Imus, Cavite in Mister United Continents Philippines 2016?

It feels great to represent Imus City. My battle is also the battle of Imus City.

Give three adjectives that your friends would use to describe you.

Understanding, loving and generous

Tell us about one life-changing experience in your life.

I was so depressed when my father and mother got separated. It's a big challenge in my whole life. I was so emotional during that time. I consider this as the most challenging part of my life but this experience made me stronger in facing problems that may come along my way.

What do you like to do for fun?

 I spend time with my friends and being at a place where I can peacefully meditate.

Tell us a little bit about Imus, Cavite.

 Imus City:
*FLAG CAPITAL OF THE PHILIPPINES
*Foremost banking center of Cavite with numerous financial institution and also an excellent banking infrastructure
*Emerged as CALABARZON most competitive city
*Imus Public Employment Service Office named the best in Cavite.
*3rd Place Overall Most Competitive Component City in the whole Philippines for 2015.

How would you describe your advocacy to the judges?

Even without money I can help street children. Since it is my advocacy, here's 7 things that I can do: 

1.Volunteer - I will ask if they need any help or know any local programs where I can take part.

2.Give a moment - The simplest and the most valuable thing that I can give to a child is time. Generosity doesn't have to mean giving away things. Sharing a bit of myself, opening a window into my own world is a good place to begin.

3.Eat together - dining together is a great way to spend time with someone while letting them enjoy a warm meal. It will also let the child feel more secure knowing that I am interested in his/her culture.

4.Share my world

5.Play with pictures- Another great tool is my cellular phone. Kids love to ham it up and in my experience, they will often burst into excited shrieks and start making funny faces, flashing "peace signs" or doing group photo ops.

6.Feel the music

7.Teach each other

Message to my supporters.

Samahan ninyo ako sa aking magandang hangarin lalo na sa aking advocacy. Minsan pa nating patunayan na MATIBAY ANG WALIS KAPAG NAKABIGKIS. I love you all! Thank you Godbless

Hello! I’m Issa Arciga Janda, 20 years of age from Polangui, Albay. Right now I am a 3rd year student of Bicol College, Daraga, Albay, taking up Bachelor of Science in Criminology.

Right now my mother is working abroad for a better income to sustain our needs.

How did you become interested in pageants?

I became interested in pageants because when I was a 2nd year college student, my friends pushed me to join in our school pageant. Unfortunately,  I lost, but even if I didn’t win, I knew that my life was changed and I went on to compete in pageants outside the school. Through my experience in joining pageants, I learned a lot - it helped me build my self-confidence especially in front of the crowd, developed my personality, talents, skills and I feel the spirit of camaraderie of the people watching the pageant. Joining pageant can actually be an inspiration to everyone especially to the youth that by giving the best that you can be, “Never give up just give your best!”

How does it feel to represent Polangui, Albay in Mister United Continents Philippines 2016?

It’s an honor and a privilege to represent my home town in this national pageant. I feel like I am the happiest person in the world. This kind of opportunity will have a great impact in my life because I can be a role model to inspire others and it would also help me achieve my goals in life. So when I learned that I was handpicked to join the Mister united Continents Philippines 2016, I immediately grabbed it, because if I won’t grab the opportunity, it might not happen again.

Tell us a little bit about Polangui, Albay.

Polangui is a very peaceful place in Albay where locals are peace loving people. We have products derived from sugarcane which is locally called “Calamay”.

Despite the hardship and difficulties in life, Polangueños still manage to live a happy, healthy and balance life.

How will you motivate others to practice sustainable living choices?

To have sustainable living we must have discipline within ourselves, strive hard, be humble and always put God first in everything we do so that we can have guidance from Him in achieving our goals in life.

How would you describe your advocacy to the judges?

My advocacy is all about the out of school youth to keep them away from bad things like drugs.

Through this, and even though life is very hard, they can have a more secure future.

TPQ EXCLUSIVE: GETTING TO KNOW VERGE LLEGO, MISTER UNITED CONTINENTS PHILIPPINES - ARGAO, CEBU


"YOLO “You only live once”. So make the most of your life!!! Live it to the fullest and be healthy! Live with a purpose! Be a blessing. Be somebody and be the better change!!

"I want to be Mister United Continents Philippines because more than the title, the greatest prize I could get is the power and prerogative to influence and motivate more people toward my advocacy. A privilege and honor as well to represent our country to Mister United Continents 2016. I believe that this pageant would be my platform to showcase my inner-self more than my looks and a great chance as well too push my advocacy."





Tell us a little about yourself, your family background, education?

I’m Virgilio Llego, my friends call me Verge, for short. I’m 22 years old, I live in Argao Cebu.  I came from a simple yet well-oriented family wherein education has been one of the guiding principles we used to live by. My father is a typical farmer and my mother as well. We are nine in the family, five girls and four boys. I graduated high school at Calagasan National High School. Since my parents only do farming for a living, pursuing my college education has not been that easy for me due to financial constraint. But then I have an utter regards to education so I strive harder for me to pursue my college education. I’ve been a working student, self-supporting my education and a scholar too. I took up BS Accounting at University of San Jose Recoletos-Cebu City then after 2 years taking up Bachelor of Science in Accounting, I realized that it is not my cup of tea so I decided to shift in a Hospitality Management course in the same University. After two years of pulling out all the stops and struggling with my study because of financial constraints, I decided to quit college and looked for a job. Sad, I must say because I really wanted to finish college but I know that’s the thing I have to do to help my family already.I worked in a bank and a BPO company. I know learning doesn’t end up in schools. But I am still willing to continue my college education if given a chance. Currently I am into modeling.

How did you become interested in pageants?

I regard pageant as an avenue to show people your inner self. More than how astounded you look but showcasing as well your skin-deep beauty which constitutes substance, personality and virtues. These are what made me interested to pageantry - a showcase of oneself holistically. Aside from that, It is my passion to serve other people, my fellow Filipino, specially and I believe joining and winning this pageant would be a great means and opportunity to do what I love which is to serve.

How does it feel to represent Argao, Cebu in Mister United Continents Philippines 2016?

I am so privileged and more than happy to represent my province. Representing my province means giving pride and honor. A diplomat once said, a successful one is someone who looks back. A way of looking back is taking the flag of your roots. To me, representing my province is representing every Cebuanos- telling people our stories, culture, and beauty.

Give three adjectives that your friends would use to describe you.

1. Dynamic 2. Driven 3. Resilient

Tell us about one life-changing experience in your life.

My life-changing experience is when I became a professional model from being a farmer. I was walking on the street that time from school when someone approached me and asked if I am model, then I answered telling the person that I am not a model. But maybe that person found model qualities in me so he invited me to an event. After that said event a lot of opportunities in modeling industry got in my way. Basically, that’s how the story went. More than that, I guess the experience that really has a great impact in my life is my experience as a candidate of Mister United Continent Philippines itself. This experience pushes me to be a better person that I can be and to be someone that I can be. I know this experience would open doors for me. And all the learning in this experience will forever mark my life.

Name three things that you would never do.

1. Quit when I know I can make it.
2. Relinquish my National Identity.
3. To stop dreaming.

What do you like to do for fun?

There are lots of things that I like to do for fun. I like being with my friends, spend hours at the gym for a healthier me. I like exploring nature. I like to lay on the rooftop and stare at the stars. That's genuine happiness for me. The feeling of being useful and peaceful is my kind of fun. But what I really love to do is to help the community. I love doing charity work, do outreach programs, and to serve. There is nothing more fun than doing what you really love.

What would constitute a "perfect" evening for you?

A moment of silence to reflect, to assess how my day went, to think of the negative things I've done and encountered and to plan for tomorrow,  to think of what I can do for the better and how could I be a CATALYST.  And also the perfect evening for me is the night that I will be crowned as Mister United Continent 2016 (flash a smile) haha.

 Tell us a little bit about Argao, Cebu.

More than the pristine beauty and majestic scenery, Cebu is a home of colorful and diverse culture. It has a blend of modern and traditional living. Cebu is blessed to be a nestling place of hospitable, God-oriented, and environmental steward people. These are the characteristics that made us stood out and well-preserved.

How will you motivate others to practice sustainable living choices?

I will motivate others through this pageant. As I am already practicing my choice of sustainable living, joining this pageant would give me a label to be looked up to by the people. I would be their model. That’s why I really wanted to win this pageant because I believe that this would give me a great opportunity to motivate and inspire others.

How would you describe your advocacy to the judges?

I believe that every person should only have up to 3 advocacies for me to concentrate. Mine would be environmental stewardship, health, and education. I believe that this three causes are interrelated to each other and has a great significance. I've always believed that in order for a child to achieve his/her dreams and succeed in life, he/she needs to be given quality education. No child can study well if he/she is hungry or sick which brings us to health. Lastly, in order to provide children a healthy living environment, we must protect our resources and the environment. First, EDUCATION- I will support any organizations like CHILD ZERO which I am currently supporting or any activity and that promotes literacy and education. Next, HEALTH- I will involve myself to any programs like medical mission, outreach program like supplementary feeding to help promote health awareness. I will also encourage and educate other people to live a healthy life style. Last but not the least, ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP- My advocacy would be a campaign to find the inner spark of concern for our environment. I would encourage people to do simple things such as waste segregation and water and energy conservation. Perceiving the number of those who will follow, small or big, still it is a great difference. I will teach them how to conserve our nature and personally I also started projects like tree planting and coastal cleaning.

Boxers or Briefs?

Boxers,I don’t wear brief.LOL. Boxer is more comfy that’s it.

Blue or Pink?

Blue- royal blue to be precised because I believe that I was born royal.

Piolo Pascual or Derek Ramsay?

Derek, we are look alike. [wink emoticon}

Anne Curtis or Angel Locsin?

Anne, because of her persistence. She is a pursuer of dreams.

Message to your supporters, friends and family?

To my supporters, friends and family, I’d like to extend my heart and convey my deepest gratitude for supporting me all the way. Your love and support serves as my inspiration to fight this good fight! Without all of you, this dream would remain as only a dream but with you behind me gives me courage to pursue and finish what I have started. Thanks a million. No words will suffice to express how grateful I am. Your support is very much appreciated. To my friends, thanks for being there in bad times and in good times. We are golden, guys! To my beloved family, this is all for you! All I ever wanted is to give pride and glory to our family. Thanks for the love and I will make you proud. To GOD be the Glory!!!

"It was a dream! Joining a national pageant and representing the country is a great honor and that's what I always wanted, Mister United Continents Philippines is the stepping stone. I know this is a door that would open a lot of opportunities."




Tell us a little about yourself, your family background, education?

I'm Jeffrey Montibon, 23 years old the son of Mr and Mrs Narciso Montibon and Elueteria Montibon. I came from a big yet happy family-- 3 sisters and 6 brothers. After graduating from high school, I haven't got a chance to pursue my college studies.

How did you become interested in pageants?

Taking this opportunity and having the privilege to represent my province are the reasons why I've become interested in joining pageants.

How does it feel to represent Agusan Del Norte in Mister United Continents Philippines 2016?

Of course, I feel proud and honored to represent my province. I now have the opportunity to show to them the culture and values we have.

Give three adjectives that your friends would use to describe you.

My friends know me better as first, being faithful to my loved ones and to God the one who created me, second being determined in everything that I do and lastly, a loving person to everyone.

Tell us about one life-changing experience in your life.

I think one life-changing experience that made me become the person I am today is when I almost lost my life because of dengue. I realized the value of my life, clarified the purpose of my existence and had a good reflection and evaluation on the things I did. I committed myself to God to have a good relationship with Him and to all His creation, to give love and care to everyone and everything and to live the best of life everyday as if it's always the last.

Name three things that you would never do.

To hurt my friend, hurt my family and hurt my love, these are the things that I really never wanted to do.

Going out with friends.

What would constitute a "perfect" evening for you?

To sleep at least even a night of nothing to worry about, like waking up without an agenda.

Our province has many beaches. Mount Hilong-Hilong the highest peak in Northeastern Mindanao can be found in our province. It is known for its pristine waterfalls, a lake and as a confirmed nesting site of the critically endangered Philippine eagle. The Agusan River, the longest in Mindanao and the third longest in the Philippines, is one of our pride as well, the ancient "balangay boats" were found in our province. They were excavated in the Balangay Shrine. These are just some amazing tourist destination you will find in our province and I guess it makes us different from the rest.

Before motivating others, you have to know how to motivate yourself first, because once you've motivated yourself it would be easy for you to motivate others.

I would describe my advocacy to the judges by showing them my determination. I'll make sure that every actions that I take will count.

Boxers or Briefs?

Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna to attend Miss Mundo Puerto Rico

Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna will grace the finals of Miss Mundo Puerto Rico.



She is now on her way to Puerto Rico, where she will meet up with the Miss Mundo Puerto Rico competition to form part of the judging panel for their Top Model event, and also to attend the presentation of this year’s Beauty with a Purpose projects.



Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico is one of the most important national pageants in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico debuted in Miss World in 1959, then was absent from 1960 to 1969.

In 1970 a new organization took the responsibility of sending contestants until 1985 via castings. Puerto Rico did not compete in Miss World from 1986 to 1988. The Miss Puerto Rico organization, directed by Anna Santisteban, obtained the Miss World franchise in 1989 and sent the 1st runner-up of Miss Puerto Rico to Miss World until 1995.

In 1996, Delia Cruz, mother of Puerto Rico's only Miss World Wilnelia Merced Cruz, obtained the franchise and began organizing the Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico pageant whose winner has been competing ever since in the international pageant. Puerto Rico has produced one winner (1975), two 2nd runners-up (2005, 2011) and ten semi-finalists (1976, 1978, 1980, 1985, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010), and one quarter-finalist (2012).

Miss World 2015, Mireia Lalaguna joins a celebrity cast in the annual Variety Iowa Telethon


“It was a real pleasure to be part of such an amazing team and to help raise money for great causes in Iowa. During my time in the state I learnt a great deal about the efforts made by so many groups, who will all benefit greatly from this event. Every year thousands of lives are changed through the generosity of the people. Iowa you are amazing!”




Reigning Miss World Mireia Lalaguna was in Iowa this weekend joining a celebrity cast in the annual Variety Iowa Telethon, helping to raise over $3.7 million for local charities!



Now in its 42nd year, this annual event has raised over $100 million in its history, and this year came very close to beating last year’s record haul of $3.8 million. A 24 hour event, the telethon sees local and international celebrities come together for a marathon of performances and presentations alongside individual appeals and of course major donation presentations!




Miss World’s participation included a stint in presenting on during the live telecast as well as manning the phones taking donations from the citizens of Iowa who annually turn out to provide for those less fortunate than themselves.

Sissel Ria Rabajante, previously joined in 2013 and 2015 but went home empty-handed. Now she is up to the challenge for the third time around. Do you think that switching from RLs Angels to Aces and Queens will help her winning one of the crowns or even placing as a semi finalist?

Mariella Castillo, she's one of the semi finalists in Bb. Pilipinas 2010, the same year she also competed in Miss Global Teen which was held in Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, where she was crowned "Teen Queen of Asia and Oceania" and one of the semi-finalists. Will the luck be in her favor this time?

Nichole Manalo, "beauty is in the blood". Nichole is the sister of Bb. Pilipinas-World 2002 Kate Manalo and Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2009 Bianca Manalo. She first joined in 2014 and finished as a semi-finalist. This year, she came prepared and ready to win any of the crowns.

Leonalyn Dela Cruz, also joined Bb. Pilipinas 2014. This CPA from Caloocan who works as a part-time instructor and auditor is pursuing an MBA. Which crowns do you think will she clinch?



Jeslyn Santos from Hagonoy, Bulacan is also joining for the second time. Apart from Binibining Pilipinas, she was also a runner-up in Pinay Beauty Queen Academy season 1. She also represented the Philippines in Miss World Peace 2015 which was held in Hongkong. She studied broadcast communication in college. How far do you think she will go in the competition?

Angelique Celine De leon, also joined in 2014. A former athlete, she plays basketball, loves arts and crafts.

This year she is back with a bang! Though she was unplaced in her last attempt, she left everyone a remembrance with her jeepney inspired modern Philippine terno designed by Jeffrey Rogador. Will she finally make it this year?

Paula Rich Bartolome, after failing last year Paula is back with a huge and great improvement. Will this help her win this time?

This is Kylie Verzosa's second attempt and she is determined to win the top plum. An Ateneo De Manila University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. She works on a fashion and beauty magazines and broadsheets under the PMAP (Professional Models Assocaition of the Philippines).

There is no turning back, 'coz she's back with all the lessons she learned from her experience last year.
