SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Miss Philippines Gazini Ganados won hands down in the 2019 Miss Universe Natioanal Costume Competition. Will the Philippines win back to back in this year’s pageant?
The next Miss U.S.A. already has her national costume made and ready to go. And it was a donation!
As the legendary Beach Blanket Babylon musical revue came to an end after a 45-year run in San Francisco, Steve Silver Prductions announced that it was donating one of its humongous costumes for use by the U.S.A.’s repreentative to the next Miss Univers Pageant.
Miss U.S.A. will literally carry the entire San Francisco — America’s favorite city — on her head.
It will be the naitonal costume to beat.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – One is enough, two is too much. And so the Philippines is withdrawing from the Miss Universe competition and will no longer be sending representatives to this annual international beauty pageant.
In 2015, pageant host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner of the the Miss Universe crown — Miss Colombia instead of the real winner Miss Philippines.
Then today, in the 2019 edition of the pageant, it was announced that Miss Malaysia won the Best in National Costume award. But the real winner was Miss Philippines.
Fed up with the gaffes, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, franchise holder of the Miss Philippines-Universe pageant, announced it was withdrawing from the Miss Universe pageant altogether.
”The Miss Universe Organzation seems to have a beef with the Philippines,” a spokesperson for the charities told The Adobo Chronicles.
ATLANTA, Georgia (The Adobo Chronicles, Atlanta Bureau) – Television host Steve Harvey will go down in history as the guy who announced the wrong Miss Universe winner.
We’re talking of course about that prime-time moment in 2015 when Harvey announced Miss Colombia as the new Miss Universe when in fact, it was Miss Philippines who won the crown.
Fast forward to 2019….
While this year’s Miss Colombia told Harvey that the Colombian people have forgiven him for his gaffe, the host said “the Cartel hasn’t forgiven me.”
The Adobo Chronicles has just learned that in a backstage conversation between Harvey and Miss Philippines about the same gaffe, the host told Gazini Ganados that while he thinks the Filipino people have forgiven him, President Duterte has not.
To add insult to injury, Harvey, in announcing this year’s winner of best national costume, mentioned Philippines, when in fact, the real winner was Miss Malaysia.
The Miss Universe Organization should fire either Harvey or the teleprompter. One is enough. Two is too much.
