Beauty indeed depends in the eye of the beholder as well being said. Some could be beautiful for you but others would disagree and slap you their favorite contestant. That is normal in pageantry, you will bash your country’s rep specially when your personal bets didn’t make it and then when that girl slap you with her victory and crown you suddenly shut your mouth and feel all the guilt sinking in your head. Accept it or not, I’m referring to you 🙂
Most pageant observers and analysts will contradict to each other. One of our pageant analyst her in Pageantpedia can’t move on from her personal sentiments to Miss Universe Philippines titleholder. We got this amazing idea to compare these 6 magnificent Filipina that represented Philippines in the past 6 years.
This amazing idea will state if these 6 ladies competes together, who will emerge victorious. Please take a note that these ladies already proven their worth and represented the country very well up to their last breathe. Their placement internationally varies and not the same so we are not judging them that way. Please mind as well that Shamcey Supsup already won over Janine Tugonon and MJ Lastimosa in 2011. Janine on the other hand outshines MJ Lastimosa in 2012 coronation night. MJ then sent Wurtzbach crown-less in 2014 when Pia already lost to Ariela Arida in 2013. That placement alone should not matter.
We judge them base on what we saw, their connection to the people and many to mentions but we specify them below with so many categories. So without further a do if these ladies competes together here are the possible results by our pageant experts:
First Category: Beauty/ Face
1 – Ariela Arida – 2013
2 – Mj Lastimosa – 2014
3 – Maria Venus Raj – 2010
4 – Pia Wurtzbach – 2015
5 – Shamcey Supsup – 2011
6 – Janine Marie Tugonon
Second Category: Fan Vote/ Miss Congeniality:
1- Mj Lastimosa is number one in the list. If you will remember she is the most cheered and applauded Filipina contestant even before the pageant. When she won Miss universe Philippines title, people are cheering widely including previous beauty queens and title holders. She was reportedly to be the first Filipina contestant being favored to use the miss universe facebook page to answer questions from her fans. Prior to the show, she is being featured in miss universe facebook page and website. Most Filipinos expected that she is the third Filipina to win the crown, but she failed to do so. . . .
2- is Ariela Arida if you could remember, the judges don’t have her on their top 15 list but she was able to maintain the Philippine consecutive placement when she is lucky enough to bagged the most number of fan vote using the miss universe application. She was then included in top 16 and became third runner up. Filipino fans are supporting her despite of the typhoon that hits her country that time.
3 – Shamcey Supsup, can you remember when she nailed the swimsuit round with 7.5% fan vote, she is in second place next to miss Venezuela. Come the final look, among 5 finalist she got the most number of votes from fans online.
4 – Maria Venus Raj, can you remember those fan’s reaction when she made it to the final 15? The roar of people in Vegas? The post videos of those crazy fans that wildly celebrating for her finish! Definitely Venus is <3.
5 – Pia Wurtzbach, the most cheered contestant during miss universe 2015.
6 – Janine Tugonon also got a huge fan competing along with Olivia’s fans.

6 – Janine may failed to have a perfect shape but she rocked it in runway!
Fifth Category: Evening gown competition!

5 – Luckily, Pia Wurtzbach got to wear this home made creation that best match for a blue crown. Read: Blue Gown For Pia Wurtzbach.
6 – Mj Lastimosa tried to pose her best with the white gown but for judges her best wasn’t good enough. If she was given another color, higher chances is possible.
Sixth Category: Question and Answer
For this category, we collected all their Q and A from national to international since one of them wasn’t able to make it in final Q and A in miss universe.
1 – Janine Tugonon is indeed beauty and brain!
Question: What is a major lesson that men should learn from women? Answer: I think the major lesson that men can learn from women is to love unconditionally. Women are able to touch their lives and be of service to others. Men can realize that at the end of this journey what matters is not our own happiness but how we are able to serve others. Because our years of existence will be worthless if we haven’t done anything for humanity.
Question: Many women nowadays forego a happy family life for a successful career. How do you feel about this? Answer: Well, I believe that women have the right to choose between what they want. But for me, you’ll have to go for what God has called you to do. Whatever it is between the two, you must do what’s your purpose in this world. Just have a child-like faith and mature obedience and everything will go smooth.
Question: As an international ambassador, do you believe that speaking English should be a prerequisite for Miss Universe? Why or why not? Answer: For me, being Miss Universe is not about knowing on how to speak a specific language, it is on how you influence and inspire other people. So whatever language you have, as long as your heart is to serve and you have a strong mind to show to people, then you can be miss universe.
2 – Shamcey Supsup
Question: What worthy cause do you identify yourself with and why? Answer:I think the one worthy cause I can identify myself with is valuing education. Because I believe education is something that cannot be taken away from you. You can have money, you can have fame, but in the end, it can be taken from you. But education will always be there to help you.
Question : Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why or why not? Answer: If I had to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I love because the first person that I love is God who created me, and I have my faith and principles and this is what makes me who I am. So if that person loves me, he should love my God too.
3 – Mj Lastimosa
Question: Can you please name at least three things that makes you smile and why?Answer: The three things that made me smile is one, the love of my family. They’re been always there to support me in everything that I do. Second, the love of the people who I don’t even know, that are here supporting and cheering for me. Even my family is not here, they are here, they are making me strong. Number three, is the love of this candidates. Thank you.
Question: What do you think is the most pressing problem of the world today and how do you think you can help solve it as a beauty queen? Answer: I believe that one of the most pressing problem(s) of the world today is that people with their curiosities may sometimes harm them. And I believe that though peripheral listening, we may be able to solve this problem. Curiosity in a right way of using it will lead us to knowing and that knowing could lead us to learning.
Question: March is Women’s Month. For you, what is the greatest advantage of being a woman?
The greatest advantage of being a woman is being able to compose herself. Just like here, we’re standing in front of thousands of people.Not knowing if you gonna cheer for us or boo us, but we try to compose ourselves, we keep the emotions and show the beauty that is in us and tonight thousands of people are standing here, celebrating the beauty of a woman, and that’s an advantage of a woman.
4 – Ariela Arida
Question: What is one lesson that men can learn from women? Answer: One lesson that men can learn from women is for being sensitive. Men are more rational than women, they are more straightforward when it comes to decision, unlike women we use our heart. So that’s it for me, sensitivity is something that men should learn from women.
Question: What can be done about the lack of jobs for young people starting their career around the world?
Answer: I do believe we should invest in education – and that is my primary advocacy, because if all of us are well educated and socially aware we can land into jobs. Education is a primary source and a ticket for better future.
5 – Pia Wurtzbach
Question: What do you think is the greatest achievement of Bb. Pilipinas? Answer: I think the greatest achievement that Binibining Pilipinas has given to the world is the candidates, not just the winners, but everyone. Because each candidate… our lives changed when we joined this pageant, and we became inspiration to other people. And that’s why I think the greatest gift of Binibining Pilipinas is its candidates. Thank you.
Question: What is a the most important lesson that you as woman could teach to the world? Answer: One lesson that a woman could teach to the world is self confidence or intuition as we all know, because if you have this intuition and you know what you do then you will be successful in your life.
Question by Congresswoman Leni Robredo: Social media is now a very powerful tool of communications. Can you tell us your thought about Internet censorship?
Answer: I think that we should be careful of what we post online, especially with our thoughts and our opinions that we don’t hurt anybody, especially selfies, we have to be careful with what we post, especially with our bodies and our faces, so always think before you click. Thank you.
Question: Earlier this year, there was a controversy in Philippines about the United States reopening a base in your country. Do you think the United States should have a military presence in your country? Answer: I think that the United States and the Philippines have always had a good relationship with each other. We were colonized by the Americans and we have their culture and our traditions even up to this day and I think that we’re very welcoming with the Americans. And I don’t see any problem with that at all.
Question: Why should you be the next miss universe? Answer: To be a Miss Universe is both an honor and responsibility. If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country which is the Philippines. I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart. Thank you.
6 – Venus Raj
Question: How far would you go to achieve your dream? Answer: I think to achieve my dream I really do my best, to really achieve what I want in life, because at the end of the day, it is only me who can help me a lot. And have god within me.
Question: You know what sir, in my 22 years of existence, I can say that there’s nothing major major I mean a problem that I’ve done in my life because I’m very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving to me. So thank you so much that I’m here. Thank you, thank you so much!
So after our final deliberations along with pageant experts, analysts and aficionados. We came down to this result with exactly 100 judges cast by vote. Please note that 3 of them never cast their votes as they can’t decide which or who, just to be fair and square. Indeed, your fate in beauty pageant varies in your performance, popularity, sash, host country, judges and perfect time. Are you ready for this?
Janine Tugonon was left in the top 10 with 9 votes only from our 100 pageant analysts.!
The Fourth runner up is Pia Wurtzbach, she got 11 votes for this placement from our 100 circle of pageant aficionados. Look at her reaction ❤
Third runner up is Maria Venus Raj with 12 votes, she started the legacy after all!
The composed Mary Jean Lastimosa garnered 18 votes so she should go home with second runner up placement. If you will remember, this might be coincidence during Bb. Pilipinas 2011 where she went home with the same placement. 🙂
And the last two standing is Shamcey and Supsup and Ariela Arida . . . . . .
First runner up is Shamcey Supsup with 21 votes.
Which means the brightest of them all is Ariela Arida with 26 votes, she is Miss universe Philippines!
So what can you say about our judgement? Please cast your vote too 🙂
