The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) finally put an end to speculations that the Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) franchise has been awarded to the group of Ilocos Sur Gov. Luis Chavit Singson.

In an official statement released to the Manila Bulletin, the MUO said that it will continue working with the Araneta Group on Binibining Pilipinas.

The MUO praised the leadership of Jorge Araneta, CEO, chairman and president of the Araneta Group; and his wife Stella Marquez Araneta, chair, Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI), for the success of their national pageant for many years now.

The MUO also admitted that the group of Singson is supporting the efforts of MUO and the BPCI “in seeking to modernize and grow the brand into more than a one day special and LCS (Luis Chavit Singson) has agreed to support us in our efforts to do so.”

“In our continuing efforts to build and evolve the Miss Universe brand in the Philippines, the Miss Universe Organization has explored many options and opportunities to enhance Binibining and grow it into a dynamic, multi-faceted platform. While exploring these opportunities, we sought the input of all of our partners and will continue to do so.”

Previous reports alleged that the MUO has offered the local franchise to Singson.

The MUO said that before the finals of 2019 Bb. Pilipinas beauty contest in June, Governor Chavit Singson will welcome all of the Binibining contestants in historic Vigan, just as he did with the Miss Universe contestants in 2017.

“We look forward to the collaboration and innovation to bring an exciting future to Miss Universe Philippines and our beloved fans in the country,” the statement added.

The official statement was obtained by the Manila Bulletin after this writer e-mailed the MUO to comment on the issue surrounding the ownership of MUP franchise.

  1. We been knew. This year's BBP is a transition edition. They opt to stay as respect na rin sa organization na tumulong kay Cat na masungkit ang crown, graceful stage exit kumbaga. Next year, kakalas na ang MUP and Supra sa BPCI.

  4. mas magandang ilagay yung effort at pera ng pinas sa sports kesa sa beauty contests. sa mayayaman na bansa hindi pinapansin ang mga beauty pageants, basta me representative lang. mas binibigyang importansha yung sports. pangmga mahihirap na countries lang yung uhaw na uhaw sa mga beuty contests

    1. Bruh, ligwak naman pinoy sa karamihan ng sports. I'm sorry to say. Mga sponsors they want to see results and winners kaya di mo din masisisi kung mas madami tumatangkilik sa beauty pagents. Andami na nanalo, took the crown and di lang runner ups.

    4. Bruh 11:49 sinasabi mong “ligwak” pinoy sa sports kasi kulang sila sa funding, kulang sa advanced training kasi kulang sa financial support. Pero pag nakapag-uwi ng gold medal isa ka siguro sa todo post ng proud pinoy. Isipin mo yung hard work ng athletes na makahanap ng funds para makapag-compete sa ibang bansa. Nanunuod ako ng pageants, pero hindi tama na i-dismiss mo yung mga athlete natin kasi di sila nakapag uuwi ng pride sa pilipinas.

    6. In US, parents enroll their kids as young as 3 to sports class up to their teen years. They advanced their level by joining competitions. Others do try outs for the national team. If accepted then they will undergo training supported by the gov. Basically all the expenses for the classes/trainings before the national team is shouldered by their family.

    7. Nasa sports din naman kasi na sinasalihan ang mali. Meron naman na pwede tayo manalo like billiards, chess, marathon nga pwede i-develop at i-train ang pinoy. Kaso sinasalihan lagi, basketball, ang liit ng players. Boxing, ang hina naman ng coches kaya nadadaya. Track and field, eh ang liit nga legs ng pinoy. Diving, jusme wala naman expert dito nun, ni hindi yata alam ang rules sumasali pa. Ibig ko lang sabihin may sports na pwedeng match sa physical abilities ng mga pinoy na pwede idevelop at i-push sa international competitions
