The 66th Miss Universe just wrapped up and many have already posted their “‘wag muna magpaparlor statuses” because Miss Philippines Rachel Peters didn’t make the top 5. Geez, gay people have other professions too, you know. Anyway, like last year and the year before that, Amiciness transcribed all the Q and A from the most awaited pageant in the universe as accurately as possible. I thank you.
Miss Universe Top 5 Q&A
The 92 candidates of the 2017 Miss Universe (the highest attendance in the pageant’s history) were whittled down to the Top 16 for the swimsuit round, down to the Top 10 for the evening gown round, and to the Top 5 for the all-important Q&A. The last 5 standing were: South Africa, Venezuela, Thailand, Jamaica and Colombia. Here’s how they answered the Q&A:
Asia’s Next Top Model will be back on our television screens for its fifth cycle soon! They’ve already wrapped up shooting for the upcoming cycle last month. With the new cycle comes exciting changes. First and foremost, we have the new judging panel of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5, albeit with some familiar faces. 😀
The 65th Miss Universe is already over but the Miss Universe fever in the Philippines has not subsided yet. It has been a tradition here at Amiciness to have a go at answering the Q&A questions of the major beauty pageants; may it be for Miss Earth, Miss World, Miss International, and of course, Miss Universe. You’ve already read what the candidates have to say and how they fared in the 65th Miss Universe Q&A. But now, let’s find out how Amiciness answers. Remember, this is all for fun (and for my own intellectual stimulation). Starting with the first question…
Q: “What is the most significant change you’ve seen in the world in the last 10 years?”
Good morning Philippines and good evening New York! Amiciness went on a vacation leave today but not to travel. I skipped the office to live blog the 65th Miss Universe live from SM MOA Arena, Manila, Philippines (*channels inner Ariella Arida*). I spent the night watching Miss Universe specials of Kapuso MoJessica Soho to Gandang Pinay (hosted by Miriam Quiambao). HAHA! Needless to say, I’m all pumped up to know who will be the next Miss Universe. Good luck to all 86 beautiful ladies!
Word has it that instead of 12 semi-finalists, 13 ladies will be chosen to move on to the next round. The 13th finalist would be candidate with the most number of Twitter and app votes, which totaled to 213 million votes world wide as of yesterday. I’m not an expert in pageants but here are my personal faves. *update* I just noticed that many of them are from asian countries. HAHA. Go Asia!
Miss Universe mania is not yet over. The whole nation is still on a high with our latest and third Miss Universe from the Philippines, the #ConfidentlyBeautiful with a heart, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. It took us 42 Miss Universe Philippines candidates before we found one that would bring the Miss Universe crown home. Amiciness took a look back at the 10 most recent Philippine representatives to Miss Universe, starting with our 2006 rep. Who reigned supreme and climbed to the top? (Oops sorry! Wrong franchise. 😉 ) Here are the 10 most recent Miss Universe Philippines candidates ranked. Starting with…
