Let me also take this opportunity to congratulate the interpreters of the four other candidates who made it to the Top 5! Great job guys!
BREAKING NEWS: A resolution has been filed in the Senate seeking to investigate why the Philippines, after 38 successive years, has yet to win another Miss Universe title. Schedule of hearing to be announced soon.
On Twitter, the US Embassy in Manila congratulated Shamcey Supsup for placing 3rd runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant. Moments later though, Wikileaks intercepted classified direct Twitter messages from the US Embassy to Washington saying, “The Philippines’ representative to the Miss Universe pageant is not as strong as Miss USA or Miss Ukraine. Her signature tsunami walk is awful. Go Angola!”
Asked if Shamcey Supsup has a boyfriend, the spokesman of the Bb. Pilipinas Charities answered, “That’s like Wikileaks. We don’t comment on Shamcey’s social life.”
Fan votes (which had no bearing on the judging) were shown on TV screens during the live telecast. Miss Philippines placed second in the long gown competition. In last place was Moammar Gaddafi.
Special awards were handed out during the Miss Universe preliminaries. The Miss Photogenic trophy went to Miss Sweden. Named Miss Congeniality was Dyan Castillejo.
Shamcey Supsup is the fourth most beautiful woman in the universe today. I wouldn’t be surprised if our bachelor president would use her as a punchline soon.
Filipinos glued on their TV screens rejoiced when the “beauty and brains” from General Santos City was announced 3rd runner-up! But something awkward happened after the announcement – Ilocos Sur Governor Chavit Singson climbed on stage!
Organizers didn’t say how much were Miss Angola’s winnings. But experts believe it was definitely less than what ABS-CBN earned from the pageant’s delayed telecast.
Via her Twitter account, Miss Universe judge Lea Salonga revealed that she did not compose the question she asked eventual winner Leila Lopes of Angola. The Tony Award-winning actress said the questions for the five finalists were pre-written. And Mike Arroyo was like, “Don’t look at me!”
A black candidate has won the Miss Universe title. Rumors say Mar Roxas is protesting the results!
Is it just coincidence? A black woman won the Miss Universe title on the same day Jejomar Binay announced his plan to run for president in 2016!

Vice President Jejomar Binay has announced his intention to seek the presidency in 2016. Asked why he’s running for president, Binay replied, “When I run, I run with God and He’s always with me. He never leaves me and He will shine the light on me.” Good answer!
This just in: Next year’s Miss Universe pageant will definitely be more competitive. Planets Mars, Venus, and Jupiter are reportedly sending candidates.

Quote of the Week
“I’m going to file a protest if possible, if there’s any legal remedy because all the fan ratings rated Miss Philippines very, very high. I thought it will be at least a contest between her and Ms. Ukraine but it turns out neither one made the top two positions which shows that I’m better as a senator than as a beauty consultant.”
