    bijhey,
    First of all, the whole concept of the Slimmers world pageant had changed. It was even a stated fact during the competition that it wasn’t about big muscles and big bodies.

    the following were the main requirements:

    1. They had to have a functional Body with functional muscles. Because they are trying to promote a fit body.
    (Miss Eduarte had a beautiful body that was not to thin or too muscular, and that is what the judges were looking for)

    2. They had to have poise. I.e. Feminity for Females, etc.
    ( Miss Eduarte once again exemplified the most feminine among the girls in the way she answer her questions, performed and the way she walked)

    I was there at the contest and to my opinion the judges made the right choice.

    your comments stating “look at her!! no poise, no shapes and where’s the muscle?
    this is ridiculous!!!”

    I think your comments are really done hastily. Had you been present at the show and had you truly observed the event you would agree that she truly deserves it.

    Anyway Bijhey, I don’t know Miss Eduarte, not do I know Mr. Rodriguez, but what I do know is that they both deserved it. Furthermore, I ask that you avoid making negative comments such as yours. It is what most Filipinos call “crab Mentality” why don’t you just accept and support the winners rather than tear them apart and ridicule them?

    Thanks for your time bijhey.

    go bijhey!
    i agree with you!
    so, Oiram did you mean being fit is like her?
    wow!! and how you can tell to us that there’s no
    media announcement at all… until now!
    it only means that we can’t appreciate your winner!
    and i heard the judges that they’re all disapointed.
    this is a big ERROR!
    according to them.
    tnx 4 d space.

    • I got so bored and just browsing and accidentally saw this… I was very curious so i watch all top 5 finalist Q&A and the Posing… I agree that she shouldn’t be the winner… What the hell is this country…No wonder we don’t go far… we are always known for “lutong lugaw” in a competition and the under the table payments plus kapit and palakasan… Oh i have to say that her posing dance is not so bad… but there isn’t any to see that she is flexible at all… dinaan lang sa pa sexy at pa curee…among all the contestants number 24 is the most flexible and look descent and professional the way she moves… and her answer seems not memorize like the others…she had a bit of grammatical error but she look and act natural…. the winner looks very conceited and annoying, it is very obvious she memorize the answer hahahha…im sorry to be mean but…she does! I can’t even find much writings about her so… It is indeed an error! Sorry 😦

    Hello Kim,
    I feel your comments are as harsh and hastility generalized much like Bijheys. Which is totally fine, we live in a free country anyway.

    Well, hey I can’t argue with you and I won’t.
    I was just thinking though……
    Firstly,
    Is Ms. Eduarte fit? Well fitness is defined as: The body’s ability to complete day-to-day activities without becoming too sore, without becoming too tired, and without getting out of breath.
    So yes Ms. Eduarte is very fit. Furthermore, she isn’t very muscular nor too skinny, exactly what was being looked for.
    Secondly,
    Now, Let us just say Ms. Eduarte didn’t deserve to win and perhaps that’s why there was no media announcement. Thats your argument right?
    Well, it seems that you agree that Mr. Rodriguez deserves the win since you didn’t complain about him at all.
    So my question is: Why hasn’t there been a media announcement for him either?
    Maybe perhaps there is something wrong with Slimmers World management or marketting derpatment for not having any press release at all. Have you thought about that?
    Thirdly,
    To another point, perhaps the judges liked the decision and perhaps they didn’t, we wouldn’t know. You yourself can’t prove it for a fact that they felt that it was an error. You yourself said ” I HEARD” which just goes to show that it could have possibly been a rumor spread about.
    Lastly,
    Kim, I really enjoy having this time to open up your mind, and to further my cause in proving that we Filipinos have a huge problem with “CRAB MENTALITY” like I told Bijhey in my previous comment, I shall share the same with you. Why don’t you just accept and support the winners rather than tear them apart and ridicule them?

    Thank you too for your time Kim, and Advance Merry Christmas and Happy New year. Hope you have a good one!

    Ey guys, I checked her profile using google. This chick was actually chosen by the U.S. State Department for a counter-terrorism program in Washington D.C.! That is sooo cool! Hot, sexy, smart! Like Angelina Jolie in Mr and Mrs. Smith!!

  7. Oiram’s posts have already expressed most of my sentiments. I’ll just add the following:

    1) There were 12 judges. It’s statistically more difficult to get a consensus with more judges.

    2) I didn’t find any contestant a glaring winner, particularly the top 10. All of them had something going for them, and everyone made mistakes. Some looked better than others, some had better routines, some answered better, etc. The winners are the ones who scored the most points based on the sum of all categories, which doesn’t necessarily imply that they won any single category.

    3) My personal opinion is that the 10 finalists were good representative samples for a wide range of different archetypes/”images” the judges wanted to choose from. Any of the 10 finalists had an equal shot at winning. After the final routines, questions, tests, etc. , I think the judges choose who they wanted, and the points averaged/summed up to the 6 winners.

    I was there too. I saw everyone perform. I heard everyone give their answer. We’re all entitled to our opinions. My opinion is that more judges chose the contestants they felt displayed a balance of body, choreography, and answers (as opposed to choosing “superbodies” or “megabrains” or “choreography professionals”). When the points were added-up, those contestants turned out to be Shaun and Michelle. I agree.

    I agree with Josh. I checked google and find out that she is on counter terroism and heads some activities which require her to ride with the Philippine and US armies in helicopters to go to Mindanao . She is also taking MA in Political Science in La Salle. Oh and by the way her undergraduate course is Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy. Gan you dig it? I heard also that this chick’s part-time is singing, and you know where she sings? in Diamond Hotel.. 5 star hotel.. what can you say.. bijhey ?

    I think Michelle is really very pretty . Nice to know that she is a graduate of BS in Physical Therapy. maybe that is the reason why she has the nice body. And the reason why she has that oozing confidence and sexiness is because she is well traveled.

    Well some people got everything. She is one of them… she got brain, eauty , talen(singing) and so mcuh more..

  14. Reality

    Is this competition drug tested?

    No.

    Are the scores of the “judges” actually considered?

    No. This is why they are/were upset. Anyone who knows anything about this competition knows that Helen Camacho and Joseph Moy are the ones who choose the “winners”. The rest of the scores are ignored or thrown out. In a legitimate contest, the scores would be published from all of the judges so that the contestants may see why they finished the way that they did. Slimmers World neither did this now nor have they done it in the past. This is why most people do not compete more than once after they realize that all of their time and money spent in preparation is for nothing more than how the political wind might be blowing that day.

    Is this competition objective or does it serve another purpose?

    Yes and no.

    No, it is not objective since there is no clear criteria for scoring and the scores are not posted, as said above. Yes, it serves another purpose..TO MARKET SLIMMERS WORLD. The winners fit what Slimmers World wants the public to believe as realistic representatives and products of the Slimmers World system.

    The realities: Both the male and female contestants are either offered steroids by the trainers within minutes of joining (ask some of the former contestants). Most will take steroids or other form of performance enhancers to win. THE CONTEST IS NOT DRUG TESTED. For those who will say “this is not a bodybuilding contest…why would they take steroids?” Because steroids add a hard look to any physique and not all steroids have side effects. Some steroids are used by women just to be thin and toned. Most of the Mossimo men use steroids, even if they weigh 150lbs soaking wet. Not everybody who uses steroids turns into a bodybuilder. Most people use them just to have abs at the beach. So if you’ve been working out for years and you look nothing like the winners, either male or female, now you know why. Either due to superb genetics (doubtful because of Slimmers ancient equipment) or drugs, their bodies do not look like how yours.

    Also, if you are Morena/Moreno, forget about competing. Only a mestizo or mestiza wins these competitions. Slimmers world loses money on their gym business. They make a profit on their SKIN CLINIC. And most people (for reasons I’ll never understand) equate “nice skin” with white skin. So if you are naturally dark and cannot afford glutathione injections (oral glutathione doesn’t do anything), don’t waste your time or money on Slimmers World competitions.

    A final note – many, if not most, of the competitors work out at the facilities of Slimmers World meaning that they are coached with gyms with proper equipment, such as Zest power gym, Eclipse gym, or Gold’s Galleria. Slimmers World doesn’t have the proper equipment to create those kind of bodies without drugs.

    So if you think that these competitions are realistic with a goal for ANYTHING other than marketing an illusion, think again.

    • So true…that’s why i quit from Slimmer’s World they do… i have been i sports for almost 15yrs…so i know… i agree with you bro!

  15. funny

    HAHAHAHAHA,

    Reality (if that is what you call yourself),
    How long did it take you to post your comment? 2 hours? no maybe 4 after rechecking all your grammar and spelling right?

    Hahah, GET A LIFE BRO!

    your comment, though very objecive, is very irrelavant.
    I honestly think you are an employee on a competing gym who is just trying to bring down slimmers world.
    Where are you from? Fitness firt? or golden gym?

    in the end, WHO CARES!!!!

    I enjoyed the show!
    GO SLIMMERS WORLD!
    HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

    P.S. it took me 2 minutes and 10 seconds to write my comment!
