Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach is Miss Universe 2015





Pia Wurtzbach was hailed as Miss Universe 2015 during the coronation night held at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, United States Sunday evening (Monday morning, Manila time.).

Wurtzbach bested 79 other candidates to get the crown.

Before the announcement, host Steve Harvey made a mistake and announced that Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez is new Miss Universe, and Wurtzbach was first runner-up.

Wurtzbach already thought she lost the crown to Colombia, which would have won back to back, until the host came forward to apologize.

The show’s organizers even flashed the result card from Ernst and Young to the audience.

Wurtzbach was in shock while already comfortably standing beside third placer Olivia Jordan, taking minutes to get to the front, where a shocked Gutierrez stood.

Even Miss Universe 2014 Paulina Vega went back onstage to correct the results, but the telecast ended before she could do so.

AlDub: Tamang Panahon


All of the waiting is finally over – in the most romantic episode yet, Alden and Yaya hold each other for the first time


BULACAN, Philippines – It's the grand day AlDub fans have long been waiting for – the "Tamang Panahon" (right time) that Lola Nidora has always spoken so seriously about.

Fans flocked to the sold-out show at the Philippine Arena Saturday, October 24, ready to see how Alden and Yaya Dub's (together, AlDub) story will play out on the huge stage.

As a treat for fans, the show aired with no commercial breaks and feaured the long-awaited grand meeting between the 2.

AlDub is all about the once-forbidden love between Alden and Yaya, played by Maine Mendoza, kept apart by Yaya's boss, Lola Nidora.

Their courtship has played out in scenes on noontime show Eat Bulaga, marrying both social media (AlDub is a perennial worldwide trending topic on Twitter) and live elements, like the grand "AlDub: Tamang Panahon" day.

The thousands-strong crowd cheered on the love team as the show kicked into full swing.

YOUNG YASMENE GRACE P. ARIM IS BONAKID PRE-SCHOOL’S READY SET LABAN SEASON 2 GRAND WINNER


When Yasmene Arim decided to take on the challenges in Bonakid Pre-School’s Ready Set Laban Season 2, her mother had very simple but no less relevant words of wisdom for her precocious seven year old daughter: “Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.”
The dance, swimming and taekwondo aficionado sent in their auditions online and actually became the show’s first guests to make it via online auditions.
“Sobrang excited ko (I was so excited),” young Yasmene enthused.
“Pinapainom ko si Yasmene lagi ng gatas at pinapakain ng maraming gulay at fruits. We believe we are strong, we can fight and we can win this competition,” her mother adds.
And they did.
The show is designed to bring out the strength, energy and resilience of children and bring out the Batang May Laban in them by way of traditional Filipino games such as tumbang preso and patintero. The host of Ready Set Laban Season 2 shares how he can describe the show in three words: Ready To Play. “The kids I encountered are so ready to play and face the challenges in the show. It did not feel like I was working. I just had fun and I played a lot with them,” Drew Arellano shares.
For its second season, Bonakid Pre-School Ready Set Laban came back with more exciting challenges and bigger prizes. As for what young Yasmene asked for as a prize? She asked for school bags and supplies for her friends and classmates at school which Bonakid Pre-School Ready Set Laban Season 2 happily provided.

Jobelle Bascug, Sexy and Beautiful Shoplifter in Cebu



Don't be deceived by her looks. She is Jobelle Bascug, 19 years old and alleged as the most beautiful shoplifter in Cebu. She  was caught on CCTV cameras after she was suspected of theft and made off with some P10,000 worth of clothes and accessories from a boutique in Mandaue City, Cebu on Tuesday, August 12, 2014. Through the social media account of the alleged theft, she was identified as Jobelle Bascug from Southern Leyte. 

GMA Cebu’s Lou-Anne Mae Rondina reported Wednesday that sales personnel were surprised over the theft as they observed the woman staying inside the shop for two hours and trying out the items there..

Authorities identified Bascug because she left behind the clothes she wore before entering the shop along with a boat ticket with her full name printed on it. Her identity was confirmed when they searched and found her account on Facebook.

The owner of the boutique, Jessa Romagos, contacted Bascug, who promised to pay for the items. But Romagos said she is still pursuing charges against Bascug.
