Interview with former beauty queens: Why prelim is impt?

“The preliminaries are very important because these are the only part where the girls will have the chance to shine as a big group for the last time. By January 30, only the top 15 girls will really get their spotlight on stage for the final swimsuit competition, and 10 for the evening gown,” explains world renowned pageant enthusiast, Norman Tinio. “The preliminaries are very much-awaited every year as they represent the make or break part of the competition. These events give everyone a better idea of who really deserves the crown.”

“You can basically determine who will enter the top 15 and top 10 from the preliminaries,” adds Aces & Queens founder Jonas Gaffud. “It’s in this stage where judges are able to clearly see if you are smart, beautiful, and if you have the ability to own the stage. That’s why a candidate must really have what I call ‘power’. I tell that to everyone I train—they should have that power to make the stage their own.”Dubbed “beauty queen maker”, Gaffud has been training the Philippines’ representatives in international beauty competitions, including Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa.

Pageant enthusiast and multi award-winning director Joey Reyes also shares, “The preliminaries are so much harder than the semi-finals, because when you become a semi-finalist, you enter a stage in the competition where you are competing against 14 other women only. But in the preliminaries, there are 85 of you. This is the part of the competition where beauty alone won’t carry you through.”


In partnership with the Miss Universe Organization and official Philippine broadcast partner of Miss Universe 2016 Solar Entertainment, TV5 is the only television network that will cover the preliminaries of the 65th Miss Universe competition. In a statement, its President and CEO, Coach Vincent “Chot” Reyes, said that the station really pushed to gain rights to air the events as part of its commitment to provide world-class entertainment to Filipinos.
