Rumor Has It: President Aquino Dating Miss U.S.A.?

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Before Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach became Miss Philippines and Miss Universe, it has been rumored that Philippine President Aquino was dating her.  No less than Aquino’s showbiz sister, Kris, fueled the rumor during an interview with Wurtzbach in one of her TV shows, where she asked Wurtzbach, “Are you dating my brother?”

Well, that rumor has been put to rest.  Wurtzbach herself denied the rumors during a radio interview in New York after she won the Miss Universe crown. “That’s so no,” she said during the interview when asked if the rumors were true.

Now we know of course that Wurtzbach is dating America’s “Sexiest Doctor Alive,” Mikhail Varshavski.

But Aquino seems to be focusing his attention on beauty queens. The latest rumor is that the bachelor president was seen dating the reigning Miss U.S.A and Miss Universe second runner-up Olivia Jordan.  Jordan is currently in the country where she sat on the panel of judges for Sunday’s 2016  ‘Binibining Pilipinas’ (Miss Philippines) beauty pageant.

Both Aquino and Jordan were mum on the rumors, so we may need to check later with Wurtzbach. After all, the two beauty queens are roommates in New York. Girls don’t lie to each other, do they?





MIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles) – In last Sunday’s Miss Universe Pageant held in Doral, Florida, Miss Colombia Paulina Vega beat 87 other contestants to win the coveted crown. Miss U.S.A. was first runner-up.  It all boiled down to the Q&A portion during which members of the celebrity panel of judges asked a question of the final five finalists.

Miss U.S.A. Nia Sanchez picked Filipino world champion boxer, and here is the full transcript of that nerve-wracking moment:

Pacquiao: “If you were given 30 seconds to deliver a message to a global terrorist, what would you say?”

Miss U.S.A. : If I happen to meet a global terrorist, I would not say a thing. I would just punch him in the face and hopefully knock him down like you do with your opponents in the boxing ring!”

The rest is history. Miss U.S.A. lost the crown to Miss Colombia.
