Tapos na ang Miss Universe pero tulad ng isang crush, forever na lang natin gagawin na topic of conversation even if ’di naman tayo directly involved. (Harsh ba?) Regardless of the outcome, hindi pa rin nagsasawa ang Pinoy sa pageant season.
Kahit medyo salty ang feeling when we missed the top 10, dinaan na lang natin sa katuwaan at memes. (At least, naka-top 21 pa rin naman tayo!)

Olivia Culpo was everyone’s Monday mood
You know that feeling when the weekend passes by like a blur and then you are once again faced with another dreaded Monday? Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo was able to accurately express it during the Miss Universe pageant. Sakto lang talaga na Monday morning sa Pilipinas ang when Miss Universe aired kaya medyo sabaw pa tayo habang nanonood.
Olivia Culpo and her kalma/dedma energy continues to be a favorite not only among Miss Universe fans but local artists as well.
Local artist Sskait, known for his cute drawings and talong-related tales, posted a kawaii Olivia sketch, giving us major Monday vibes.

Another famous comic artist, Tarantadong Kalbo, also did his take on Olivia Culpo’s bewildered expression while staring down the Miss Universe cue cards. We all wondered what was the reason behind such a reaction and Kalbo made his own very Pinoy explanation. In a country where kanin is life, forgetting to cook the rice will make anyone very hangry. (Yes, with an “A”)
Both Sskait and Kalbo’s posts received thousands of likes and shares, turning Olivia Culpo into the most relatable figure when working the daily grind. We just hope that the beauty queen shares the humor in it and doesn’t take it to heart.

A tale of two beauty queens
While fans were joking about Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon taking over Olivia Culpo’s hosting duties, the Filipina beauty queen was preoccupied with another job. She was busy taking photos of Miss Universe 2014 top 10 runner-up, MJ Lastimosa.
Remember, friends don’t let friends take bad photos! Even if it means bending down while glammed up in a prestigious event like the Miss Universe. We do everything for the ’Gram!
As if the photo wasn’t cute and hilarious enough, the two Queens also accompanied the photo with funny tweets.

MJ teased Janine about her first runner-up finish with “Walang 1st runner-up, 1st runner-up dito. Ayusin mo yan,” indicating that the photo has to be a winner. Janine even retweeted the photo saying, “I love my job.”
