  1. Plain Jane.

  2. VERY VERY VERY VERY DISSAPOINTED! I was really looking forward to Miss Universe this year.

  3. I think Janine is very pretty, and she has an exotic look that will surely wow the judges at MU 2012…

  4. I just watched binibining pilipinas 2012, and i can see why she won! i can see a “Mirriam Quiambao” in her.. She will have like almost 8 months to prepare.. And im so sure that she can turn heads at miss universe.. she is fighter! a girl that is just following her dreams.. and im sure those traits will give her more courage to fight for that miss universe crown! #teamPhilippines

  5. Congratulations ladies ~
    Your countries representative to Miss International 2012 kind of reminds me of Karla Henry and Miss Universe representative reminds me of Margarita Moran.. im thinking Miss Philippines may take the Miss Universe 2013 title (next year) regardless whom it ever it maybe, bcuz im thinking Miss Universe 2014 will be held in the Philippines (every 20 yrs) just my thoughts.. Good Luck Philippines..

  6. congrats janine! the girl with broad shoulders, great body, x factor and superb intelligence!

    mj is beautiful but ‘over rehearsed’. her final answer is a memorized answer for the question “what do you think is the biggest problem of our youth today?” (not the biggest problem of our world today) sorry… her vague answer is not relevant at all. “world peace” could have saved her. philippines can’t have another miriam quiambao in miss universe :D

  7. Disappointing Miss Universe Philippines rep. The rest are pretty.

    She will NOT make it to the top 15! Mark my word!

    • hi, she’ll make it to top 50

      • gloria moran says:

        she will make it to top3…mark my word amigo

    • Gloria, you forgot the zero. top 30 perhaps?


    Candidate # 26 “Angelee delos Reyes” — “I can show to the world that it’s more fun in the Philippines because I am Nurse by profession and I decided to stay in the Philippines, because we have a very beautiful geographical setting, which we can travel through land, air and seas. And I think that we have beautiful people and standing in front of you here right now is an example of the beautiful people of the Philippines.”

    Na uber lang talaga sya sa pag-express ng sarili nya … if she had been a little bit more reserve … anyway, she gave a very witty answer !!!

  9. I want MJ to win the Miss PHil Universe,,but it’s the judges decision that matters, let us just support Janine Tugonon to stand out this year’s Miss Universe.. I wish her goodluck and give us a good fight at miss universe…

  10. Janine is in her league of her own. She stands out from the all the already confirmeed Miss Universe 2012 delegates. The Miss Universe crown is as good as already in the bag of Philippines. Simply stunningly beautiful and intelligent beyond words.

  11. I can see her as one of the semi-finalist in MU if there’s an online voting!lol

  12. If there’s 1 candidate that I wish could have won one of the title’s, she would be Angelee delos Reyes … It’s More Fun in the Philippines …

    O mga bakla, wish lang ha … and in my own humble opinion, she also deserves … sumobra lang ang pa-impress … kung na-self contain lang nya ang sarili nya, ang gave that witty answer, kinabog nya ang isa sa mga top 5 …

  13. Personally, I think the rep going to Miss Universe is fine as she is. I can see her keeping the Philippines streak going.

  14. I was rooting for ELAINE MOLL, she’s a statuesque, beautiful face and skin tone, but it was her answer that slipped her the crown. I think Janine’s great asset for Miss Universe is her copycat catwalk from Shamcey. But I don’t think the world wanted to see the same catwalk repeatedly. Unless she opted for a plastic surgery (as Venezuelans do) and transforms her just to be noticed in Miss Universe. We’ll see.

  15. Ang mga baklang shoklang walang magawa kundi humanap ng mga kapintasan sa kanilang kapwa … I hope and pray that the 2012 BB Winners will be successful in their respective pageants … Isang malaking PAK para sa mga UBER NEGANG MGA BAKLITA DYA !!!

  16. MJ is the winner for me and the winner looks like what we were choosing during the years 2000-2009 that’s why we were not placing at all. The only one that I have made us proud was Venus. I really liked her from the start an she did us proud. As for the answers the winners did not give a good answer. I was cringing with the answer of the second runner up.


  18. She’s a winner!!!:) Let the haters hate the way they did with Shamcey when she was crowned. So fun watching them eat their own words in the end though..:)

  19. Wow congrats pokwang for winning this years BP! LOL

  20. uh oh

  21. I don’t get it. Filipinos always bash the eventual winner but in any case, when their winner place, they would end up praising. The judges made the decision. Get over it. If you guys want a specific candidate then there shouldn’t be any pageant anymore. just appoint whoever you think is fitting for the role. If you consider yourself as guru then create your own and have a franchise yourself.

  22. She’s fine. I prefered Patricia — who did not make the cut — but this gal is OK. She will likely make the top-15 in MU as a ‘Trump Selection’ because of fan interest.

  23. But why does she need “transformation” if she has what it takes to represent the country and become the next Miss Universe??? Is BPCI sending another pony candidate for they have another plans in the making just like what they did with: (who’s that girl again they sent to Miss World 2010???)

  24. Janine needs our support! Still have months of preparations! Congratulations to all the winners!

  25. Another Top 5 for the Philippines………

      so true!

  26. Judges what were you thinking? what a scandal!

  27. Sydney-sider says:

    What’s with the attitude? Why can’t you Filos be happy for the winner? The worst attitude ever!

  28. Janine is from Bataan not Bicol

  29. Ngek, Janine Tugonon DULENG! She should have reconstructive eye muscle surgery to correct her kadulingan. On the other hand, mas duling c Riyo Mori.

  30. MS PAL (usually pag makakuha ng ganyang award ang candidate siguradong makukuha nya ang BP UNIVERSE CROWN bastat wala lang magaganap na hokos pokos) ang award ni MJ at MS AVON pero naganap ang hokos pokos at napunta ky wacka wacka ang BP UNIVERSE title…………Iba talaga pag si Madam wicked ang magmanipula ng result………..MJ,THE BIGGEST ROBBED BEAUTY IN THE HISTORY OF BP………..

    • agree!!!
