TPQ EXCLUSIVE: GETTING TO KNOW JEFFREY MONTIBON, MISTER UNITED CONTINENTS PHILIPPINES - AGUSAN DEL NORTE

"I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. ” ― John Lennon


"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.

What do you like to do for fun?

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.

Tell us a little bit about Agusan Del Norte.

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. 

How will you motivate others to practice sustainable living choices? 

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.

How would you describe your advocacy to the judge? 

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? 

Boxer, it's comfortable and refreshing.

Blue or Pink?

Blue, it gives fresh feeling.

Piolo Pascual or Derek Ramsay?

Derek, because he is more masculine.

Anne Curtis or Angel Locsin?

Angel, for me she is the epitome of a true Filipina.

Message to your supporters, friends and family?

Thank you all for the overwhelming support that you're giving me.
