Repost: Miss Universe Organization Wants the Philippines to Stage Miss Universe Again

The Department of Tourism said that the Miss Universe Organization wants the Philippines to host the pageant again.

Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo said that Philippines was supposed to host this year’s pageant, but President Rodrigo Duterte spurned the request to give way for the 31st ASEAN Summit.

“They went back to us months after and said that they wanted again for us to host the Miss Universe this year, so of course I have to ask the President first, kung puwede. He said ‘wag muna this year because of ASEAN," Teo said.

For the 2018 pageant, Teo said she still has to ask permission from President Duterte.

“Kasi parang the same month din, ASEAN first week and then Miss Universe last week, so sabi ni President ‘wag muna, maybe next time, maybe next year, we will have a cabinet meeting. I will have to ask again.”

DOT Undersecretary Kat de Castro said that the Miss Universe Organization tagged the Philippine pageant as their best show to date.

 “According to the higher ups of the Miss Universe Organization, the best show to date they had is still the one they had in the Philippines last January,” de Castro said.

Teo said the Miss Universe pageant helped with the tourism influx which "increased, up by 11 percent, despite the martial law and Resorts World [incident.] Naitawid pa rin namin.”

The last time the Philippines hosted the Miss Universe Organization was in January 2017, when Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach turned over her crown to Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere.

Previously, the Philippines played host in 1994, when Dayanara Torres passed on the crown to India's Sushmita Sen.

The country first hosted the beauty pageant in 1974, the year when Margie Moran passed on the crown. — LA, GMA News

    1. Di yan ang dahian inday. Kasi wala ni isang kusing na ginastos ang MU. Gastos lahat ni Pareng Chavit. Gets mo na? Lumakas ba ekonomiya natin after? Tumigil ba paghitit ng mga adik? Tumigil ba patayan ng mga adik? Umayos ba mrt? All for show lang.

    4. No other country would like to sponsor(?).

      Delete
    5. 12:52 Tumigil ba ang krimen sa rant mo? FYI, if 70+ foreigners and their families will come here, then that's tourism, meaning additional income for the Philippines. Gets mo na?

    6. Gusto nila dito para wala na uling maging MU from the Philippines. Yun lang yun.

    9. I saw yung comment ni teo na baka iapprove daw ni dugong ulit pag nakita na ang mgacandidates.. so sexist babae pa naman sya and holds one of the highest position in the gov't. Wala talagang kakwenta-kwenta mga cabinets.. pwede naman sinabi nya na lang na for approval na ni president tapos...hays..barubal talaga!

    1. Tingin mo hindi? Those foreigners splurge money for personal expenses. Income yon. Additional number of people din to discover our country.

    2. 12:16 exactly! How many tourists came in the following year. Did it increase so much that the expenses incurred during the staging of MissU was worth it?

      Delete
    3. 11:22 it's better to have something that nothing. Wala namang gastos ang gobyerno diyan dahil private org yan. Si Chavit ang sponsor niyan. Sariling pera inday. Go back to school.

  9. Hindi pa nga plastado o walang effect yung current tagline ng DOT (uhm, ano nga yun? hehe) at uma-ambisyon na mag host ulit. There's more to tourism than hosting the Miss Universe pageant.

    Behind pa din tayo in terms of tourist arrivals among ASEAN countries. Ayusin muna ang road network at infrastructure sa bansa natin please.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wala na bang ibang alam gawin ang DOT kundi mag host ng miss U? Kahit sabihin na private sectors ang gagastos meron at meron pa rin ilalabas na pera ang govt natin. Kay pls lang wag nyong gawin dito sa pinas yan.

  30. Eh kung si pia papaya na lang kaya ang gumastos sa lahat ng paghohosting na yan dito? Tutal sya naman ang nagpromise sa kanila ng hosting na yan kaya abusado na tuloy!

    ReplyDelete
  31. SOmebody should tell Duterte that the american owners and the management are liberals and the fact that RAchel supports his administration had a negative effect on them.
    WE SHOULD DEMAND A STATEMENT FROM PIA IF SHE SUPPORTS DUTERTE'S ADMIN ESPECIALLY HIS WAR ON DRUGS. I think hindi sya magiging favorite ng liberal MUorg if she supports Duterte's administration. REALTALK.

  32. Saten lang naman kasi bigdeal ang Ms Universe. Kahit dito aa States hindi naman inaabangan yan. Baka ganjn din sa ibang bansa. Baka walang gustong mag host na ibang country.
