She was welcomed by no less than the governor of the Puerto Rico Ricardo Rosselló Nevares, the territory’s chief executive.

    Miss Philippines Catriona Gray was the real winner. This bitch won bcoz of the old bitch puerto Rico Miss World judge cheated and let her win. Just like asha previous Winner of Miss Supranational / judge cheated other girls and gave India a second win. Both these two pageants were the worst pageants of this year…Miss World and Miss Supranational..both turned trash this year. Now let’s see what Miss Universe will show us. Will the show in Philippines give a chance to a new country to win…like Sierra Leone, Czech Republic, Indonesia, Korea, Ukraine, Denmark, Italy, Nicaragua or any other who has never ever won. Can Philippines show the world that they don’t cheat and put new countries in the top 15 list and not the same old shit every year. Waiting to watch

      Poor Miss World/Puerto Rico, no huge crowd awaited of her in her own country, not even a small crowd or not even some streets decors or banners in her behalf, no warm welcome😥. Philippines is the best and no country can ever be compared in this regard..

    Majority of the crowns won by Puerto Rico if the host is either Puerto Rico or USA. We know that Puerto Rico is not a country. It’s just a territory of USA. It’s a home court advantage. Nothing to be proud of.

      Are you kidding me bro!! 😂 PR is a country, is not a state.

      • Asus

        Obama is the President of Puerto Rico. The head of state of Puerto Rico is a governor hahaha

        • Diva DaSilk

          Is no t Obama, is Trump. And you not live in PR tho…

          • Asus

            Because when I answered your question it was Jan 19, 2017. Trump officially became a president today January 20,2017. I live in the USA and I traveled all 50 states including the US territories of Puerto Rico, Guam and US Virgin Islands.

      • Asus

        Yes PR is not a state. PR is a US territory just like Guam. Do your research. Puerto Ricans are US citizens. So therefore Puerto Rico is not a country.
