Maria Poonlertlarp Ehren: Why I think She is Miss Universe Thailand 2017

If you mix Marion Cottilard, Sarah Meier and a tiny bit of Farida Waller together, you get Maria Poonlertlarp Ehren.

I say that she is definitely my early pick for the Miss Universe Thailand title this year. This 5’11” model is born to a Thai mother and a Swedish father. She  speaks a number of languages: English, Thai, Chinese (not sure if it’s Mandarin) and Vietnamese. The 25 year old has taken a the MUT screenings with a storm, which is unsurprising with her interesting caucasian-oriental mix. She is currently garnering a lot of buzz and we can’t help but to want to get to know her better.

Last year my early favorite, Kusuma Chawdon, was overtaken by the gorgeous Chalita Suansane during the last legs of the competition. I hope that Maria can sustain the initial hype and maintain her lead in the competition.
If she manages to be named Miss Universe Thailand this year, it is safe to say that she (together with Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters) would probably be the strongest girls from Asia this year.

#PhotoCollage of the Day: Mister Universe Model, Kevin Montes


Standing at 6’4″ Mister Universe Model 2017 Kevin Montes surely knows how to stand above the rest… Kevin is 22 years old and is a Biology student from San Juan. The green-eyed blonde hunk posted this message on his social media account: “I find myself from Punta Cana airport about to get on the plane but before I leave I want you to know that I’m super proud to be able to bring this big achievement to my country. I feel very excited.
I want you to know that I don’t win, but I win a whole country. And this achievement I share with all my friends and followers because thanks to their constant messages of motivation we were able to achieve this goal that unites us as a family!”

He actually looks even better with facial hair…


Scandal! Osmariel Villalobos in Hospital after a Fight

Miss Earth- Water 2012 Osmariel Villalobos was hospitalized after a fight with singer Diosa Canales.

In a report by El Nacional, the Venezuelan beauty queen was “taken to the clinic by a blunt blow to the head, dislocation of the thumb of one of her hands and trauma to the cervical and vertebral columns.” The incident reportedly happened in a gym’s bathroom last June 16. It is also said that Diosa Canales attacked Osmariel first in which the Venezuelan beauty queen also received several bites, aside from her reported injuries. According to several witnesses, the fight occurred when both women headed to the bathroom of the gym. It was inside the bathroom that both ladies had a “strong exchange of words”, until Canales pounced on the former Miss Venezuela Earth and began to beat her. In a counter by Diosa Canales, she said that it was Osmariel who attacked her first and only defended herself.

The two ladies had a feud previously when Osmariel called out the singer as being “vulgar”. This wasn’t the first time that Canales was involved in a violent incident as she and her husband were arrested back in 2016 for allegedly beating up her mother-in-law.
