Janine Tugonon Defends Ariella Arida in Moscow, Russia

Posted on November 5, 2013 | 2:40 PM

Speaking English is not a pre-requisite to winning Miss Universe.

Just like what she answered at the Miss Universe pageant last year, Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon reiterated her view and defended Philippines bet Ariella Arida from criticisms of her poor command of the English language.

“Honestly, I’m not that good in English but still I managed to clinch the first runner-up title,” explained Janine. “What they care about is what’s in your heart, your personality, and your stand on certain issues. Knowing Ara, I know she has a good heart and so I’m confident with her interviews.”

Janine, who just finished her two-month acting class in the Los Angeles branch of the prestigious New York Film Academy, believes Ara is a very strong contender and may be the one to finally bring back the Miss Universe crown to the country after 40 years. Margarita Moran last won the title in 1973.

“I believe Ara really has the face and the body. I’ve been seeing her pictures and I love them. She trained hard so i know she’ll do good. I can’t say exactly how she will fare in the competition but with Ara’s beauty, which for me is very Filipina, I think she stands a good chance because they love Filipina beauty,” said Janine.

The preliminary round of judging for Miss Universe has already begun. After the closed door preliminary interview, Ariella was recently adjudged wearing her national costume, alongside 85 other candidates,  in the National Costume competition held in Vegas Mall.

This year’s Miss Universe will be crowned this Sunday (Nov 10) in Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. The show will be hosted by Thomas Roberts of “MSNBC Live” and Mel B of “America’s Got Talent.”

Watch it live on Velvet Channel at 2 AM with a delayed telecast on ABS-CBN at 9 AM and a primetime replay at 10 PM.

Venus Raj, Andrei Felix Break up Confirmed

Posted on May 10, 2013 | 10:12 PM

Miss Universe 2010 4th runner up Venus Raj has confirmed that she and Andrei Felix has parted ways and no longer in a relationship. Venus admitted the break up on Twitter.

"Yes it's true," Raj confirmed in her official Twitter account.

Venus Raj, Andrei Felix Break up

Venus also said that the break up happened last week of April. The beauty queen-turned-host also clarified that she did not announce the separation on Kris TV's May 9 episode, even off-cam, where she was a guest along with mentor Jonas Gaffud.

Netizens, upon learning the news about the Venus-Andrei break up took to social networks cracking on jokes that Andrei might be a victim of the "Janine Tugonon" thing. Venus, however, stressed that she didn't take a cue from fellow beauty queen Janine Tugonon, who also recently broke up with boyfriend Jaypee Santos, the root of the "na-Janine Tugonon" term.

According to Andrei Felix as quoted in a DZMM report, it was Venus who initiated the break up over the phone. The guy reportedly believed that they can still fix the problem.

Although Andrei and Venus have already confirmed and talked about the break up, the former couple of one year were mum on the real reason why they headed to splitsville. There are speculations that Venus' family is against her relationship with Andrei. The beauty queen's mother, Esther Bayonito in an interview, however said that she is supportive of her daughter's relationship with Andrei. 

The special relationship between Venus and Andrei was developed while working together on the ABS-CBN morning show Umagang Kay Ganda. Their morning show stint did not last as they were booted out from the show. Rumor has it that the two were removed from the show because of too much public display of affection (PDA).

Pinoy Pageant winners this year; Philippines hailed country of the yearThe year 2012 has been a very successful one for the Philippines in the field of beauty pageants with Filipinos gaining recognition from several international pageants. With victories here and there, popular pageant website Missosology hailed the Philippines as the country of the year.

This year, our representatives to both male and female pageants did well, bringing home two crowns, six runner-up trophies, and two semifinals honors in major pageants and a handful in other pageants overseas.

Update: Rizzini Alexis Gomez won Miss Tourism International 2012 in New Years Eve, bringing the third crown for the Philippines in 2012.

Here's a run-down of the beauty kings and queens that made the Philippines proud in 2012:



June Macasaet


1. June Macasaet, winner, 16th Manhunt International
June is the first Filipino to win the Manhunt International title. This Batangueño commercial and ramp model bested 52 gorgeous men, including heavy favorite Mr. Sweden, Peter Bo Johnsson at the 16th edition of the male beauty pageant held on November 9 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Just like June Macasaet, Kevin Balot is the first Filipino to win the title of Miss International Queen. The Pinay transgender beauty beat 22 other transsexuals from different countries, including four other Filipinos at the pageant night held on November 2 in Pattaya, Thailand.




Janine Tugonon


3. Janine Tugonon, first runner-up, 61st Miss Universe
The second Filipina to be standing next to the eventual winner at a Miss Universe coronation night, Janine Tugonon has proven all her detractors wrong and made all Pinoys proud after her exemplary performance in the recently concluded Miss Universe pageant held in Las Vegas, USA which crowned the home girl, Olivia Culpo.




Stephany Stefanowitz


4. Stephany Stefanowitz, first runner-up, 12th Miss Earth
Armed with wit, beauty and concern for the environment, Stephany Stefanowitz was named Miss Earth Air (first runner-up) in the Miss Earth pageant held on November 24 at Alabang, Muntinlupa City. This Jinkee Pacquiao deadringer lost the crown to Czech Republic’s Tereza Fajksová.




Andrew Wolff


5. Andrew Wolff, first runner-up, 6th Mister World
Cory Quirino, the Miss and Mister World franchise holder in the country made the right choice when she sent Andrew James Wolff in the Mister World pageant in Kent, England.

Clarisse Marie Obia


6. Clarisse Marie Obia, first runner-up, 1st Miss Teen Universe

Elaine Kay Moll


8. Elaine Kay Moll, third runner-up, 4th Miss Supranational

Queenierich Rehman


9. Queenierich Rehman, Top 15, 62nd Miss World
Queenie Rehman made world headlines not by winning the Miss World pageant but by showcasing a talent not usual for beauty queens–beatboxing.

Miss Universe Candidates Believe Janine Tugonon is the True Winner

Posted on December 22, 2012 | 5:39 PM

Miss Universe 2012 1st runner-up Janine Tugonon told reporters in a press conference held December 22 for her homecoming that several other candidates believed that she was the true winner of the Miss Universe crown.

According to Janine, many candidates came over her to tell that they believe she won the competition shortly after Miss USA Olivia Culpo was crowned Miss Universe on Thursday (Manila time).

"Nakakatuwa nga, halos lahat sila nag-hug, sabi nila, 'It is you, we know it's you, and you know it's you,'" said Janine Tugonon who arrived from Las Vegas early Saturday morning.

"Hindi ko na alam kung sinu-sino, pero madami," she added.

The outcome of the world's most prestigious beauty pageant was met with several "protests" from Filipinos and even foreign supporters of the Pinay beauty queen who couldn't help but make comparison of Janine and Olivia Culpo's performance in the question and answer portion.

Janine's roommate, Miss Indonesia Maria Selena is one of those who said that Janine deserved the crown.

"Si Indonesia, roommates kami eh, and we became very close, and right after the crowning, umiiyak siya, siya pa 'yung umiyak para sa 'kin. Umiyak siya kasi nakapasok nga ako, nagulat din siya sa results, pero sabi niya okay lang naman daw," JanineTugonon said.

Janine, however said that she's satisfied with her first runner-up finish since not many Philippine Miss Universe representatives reach the top 2. She also said that Miss USA might have won because of her spontaneity, beauty and she's already known to the Miss Universe Organization. 

Janine Tugonon's runner-up feat is the best finish of the Philippines in the pageant since 1999 when Miriam Quiambao won first runner-up in the 48th Miss Universe pageant held in Trinidad and Tobago.

Why or why not?”

The Filipina beauty confidently answered, “For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language. It’s being able to influence and inspire other people. As long as your heart wants to serve and you have a strong mind to show to people, then you can be Miss Universe.”
