Shamcey Supsup, Rabiya Mateo comment on MUPh 2021 frontrunners


It's two days before the much awaited grand coronation night of Miss Universe Philippines 2021 pageant. On Monday night, September 27, National Director Shamcey Supsup and the reigning queen Rabiya Mateo had an online interview with Entertainment journalist, Gitri San Diego via Instagram live.

During the interview, San Diego asked Shamcey and Rabiya about their thoughts on the performance of some frontrunners and their chance in winning the crown

Here's what they said about them:


Shamcey Supsup on Miss Taguig Katrina Dimaranan.

"I've known Katrina since she joined Binibini. You could say that she really stands out when she's on stage kasi sanay na siya eh. Masasabi mong pageant veteran kumbaga. So she knows her angle, may power siya on stage. Kaya nga siya naging frontrunner kasi a lot of people saw that specially during the preliminary competition."


Rabiya Mateo on Miss Masbate Kisses Delavin

"Ganito kasi Gitri. Minsan kasi alam mo kung sino pa yung hindi natin ini-expect, sila pa yung nag sha-shine. Nakita ko kasi kay Kisses gaano siya ka determined to win the crown kahit I think this is her first national pageant. Kaya sabi ko nga may tsansa eh."


Shamcey Supsup on Miss Laguna Leren Bautista

"Well same with Katrina, they're both queens in their own right. When I saw Leren, she was already a queen and then I saw her pictures and parang sabi mo 'ang gandang Pinay'. When you see her alam mong pure blood Filipina. 'Pag nakita mo siya, ang unang-una mong mapapansin talaga ah Pilipinang Pilipina, her skin color and her feature. And of course her being a veteran as well, I think also help her in the competition kasi she's also prepared same as Katrina."


Rabiya Mateo on Miss Cebu City Beatrice Luigi Gomez

"Ang lakas ng dating niya. Siguro yung presence ni Andrea Meza, sa kanya ko na fe-feel. Parang once she's inside the room, mapapatitig ka talaga sa kanya."


Shamcey Supsup on Miss Cebu Province Steffi Aberasturi

"Well she first caught my eyes talaga during catwalk challenge, their runway challenge. It was something wowed many of the fans and even a lot of pageant critics. I think she's really determined, I could see that in all her pasabogs, diba? Marami siyang baong pasabog. I heard that she really wanted the Miss Universe crown so she really waited for this moment daw to join a pageant na talagang meant for the Miss Universe crown. I don't know ang hirap diba?"


Rabiya Mateo on Miss Manila Jasmine Umali

"I like her personality but at the same time ang ganda-ganda ng performance niya during the preliminary. She stood out sa portion na 'yun (evening gown)."


Watch the live coronation night of Miss Universe Philippines 2021 on September 30, 7PM via KTX. If you missed it, you can watch the delayed telecast on October 3, 9AM on GMA-7.
