Breaking News: Wanda Teo was fired as DOT Secretary

Postby Totoypasiboy » Tue May 08, 2018 2:50 am

    

DOT Secretary Wanda Teo was reportedly told by the President to hand her resignation after the 25th Cabinet Meeting late Monday night.

How will this affect the possible hosting of Miss Universe 2018 in our country? It is also reported that the announcement will happen today in an event in OKADA Manila. Will it still happen?

My fingers are crossed.

I didn't say that this isn't a good news. And believe me that I was elated to know that the President is true to his word about fighting corruption in his cabinet. I am also hoping that all involved with this fiasco will also be held accountable.

But is hosting Miss Universe not good for our country's tourism industry? Isn't it a good promotion for the re-opening of Boracay?

Resignation is not enough. Wanda Teo should be charged in court for graft. Good thing there was an audit, or she and her brothers would have shamelessly pocketed P60M. And please, Wanda should not be resurrected as an appointed ambassador to some European country. Duterte should cut ties with her and her greedy family.

Moreover, PTV 4 is a government station. It should can, scrap, and cancel "Kilos Pronto" immediately/pronto. Obviously, the Tulfo brothers were using their program in a government TV station as a conduit to siphon off money stolen from the Department of Tourism. Now, they're offering to restitute the P60M. That's because they were caught red handed. What if there was no audit? Di nakalusot dapat sila! The arrest and incarceration of the Tulfo brothers should be featured in the last episode of "Kilos Pronto".

Restoring the people's trust in the government is more important than promoting tourism via Miss Universe. The fast action of the Duterte Administration in the Teo/Tulfo scandal is great news, I couldn't care less about who ends up hosting Miss Universe.

I actually like the thought of Miss Universe NOT in the Philippines this year, PH should host the pageant atleast after 5 years. IMO

btw, what will happen to the tulfo brothers?

Good .
She's spending government money by the millions .

Philippines should host the Miss Universe pageant yes ...pero dapat using the money of the private sector .
Support support lang dapat ang DOT .

I'm actually hoping Las Vegas should host the Miss Universe pageant this year .

Dapat ba ora orada that Philippines should host this year ?
Why not next year ?

I was thinking ... No wonder China lost the bid .
They are up against the Philippine government .

Then as the news peogressed ... Wanda Teo was spending way too many government money .
Now this .

And I saw someone posting about a private company na nag back out na supposed to be eh among the sponsors .
Oh well

$ 12 million to host the Miss Universe pageant ?
Hmmm
And the government is willing to foot the bill ?
Philippine sponsors and advertisers makaka $ 12 million sila ? I don't think so .
It will take time bago sila maka break even sa boracay tourism .


Anyway ... What do I know ?

Look what happened to Maxine Medina .
Philippines spent millions of dollars hosting the pageant... But Maxine was left on her own and ended up with a mediocre gown .

Same thing will happen to Catriona .... Bahala ka sa buhay mo basta we will spend millions of dollars hosting the pageant.

I would rather have the Philippine government financially support Catriona or even just using their connections to contact Furne One , Michael Cinco , Monique Lhuillier etc ....these Filipino international designers are willing to make a new gown for free .
Hindi off the racks ha .
Customer made gown for Catriona .
There's plenty of time to do it .

Trust me Youtube Vlogger can influence tourist million times better than hosting Miss Universe. Who cares about pageants? Foreigners don't plus the bracket audience of Miss Universe are latinos and asians. Do you think latinos will spend money for a world tour? Not that they won't or couldn't I just don't see it happening. Europeans spend Arabs spend Mollahs why not promote it in these regions? DOT should find a vlogger who has plenty of followers from that side of the world and vloggers who speaks English so they would have a greater range of audience. What can Miss Universe do to promote the tourism in the country? NONE.

~O) After the previous Manila hosting of Miss Universe, it was reported that it costed more than what was initially agreed on. (It costed multiple times of what was agreed)
~O) The government claims that the increase of tourist last 2017 was due to Miss Universe (It should actually! Why? Because spending billions of pesos for just a pageant is stupid) but data from the government shows there wasn't really much difference in tourist entry with Q42016 and tourism earning from months before Miss Universe up to now.
~O) Investors, up to this date, has yet to recover their investment on the hosting. According to moles, this year's potential hosting will be mainly covered by the government instead of investors. (Haist... tax)
~O) Some investors were saddened by the lack of opportunities to show-off Philippines, and their businesses, as a tourist destination. (... so... hopefully PH destinations/culture/tradition get more airtime during the pageant like that in 1994)

Honest Thought: I'd prefer another country to host Miss Universe for now. I don't think Philippines is ready yet to assume such a big financial responsibility that the pageant is asking for. I have no doubt a good production is possible... but once the books are balanced, the income deficit from the previous hosting might be outweighed by this current hosting.

Wanda Teo is NOT the DOT. She serves at the pleasure of the President and is not indispensable. She can be replaced by any of the qualified candidate waiting to be called. Now that this brouhaha has caused public uproar, it's almost assured that the private sector will come up to the rescue with the exception of security and safety net that the DU30's government shall be tasked to handle.

I don't wanna comment on the issue of DOT's 60M contract.. but. I'm okay if the pageant will be held here in Manila this year. providing we will have the full control of everything; photoshoots, activities, promotions, STAGE DESIGN, production, which places to visit and etc.. so we can have returns naman. we should also ask the ladies to promote the Philippines in their social media accounts, make videos/posts that the pageant fans can repost / share about the ladies promoting the tourist spots here in the Philippines.

The Government said that they wanted to do the Swimsuit competition in Boracay.. However, i don't think this will push through, i think what they can do is let the ladies stay in Boracay for 2-3 days, let them enjoy the island and do the official swimsuit photoshoots there.

sponsors are going to shell out a big amount of money and I think that the hosting committee here will finally have the say and maximize all the opportunities to promote the country.

but.. personally, i think that it would be best that Cat will be a travelling candidate. I wanna see other countries host the pageant naman. maybe PH can host again after the Duterte administration or before the end of his term. I seriously want the DOT to do other things to promote the Philippines aside from hosting pageants. seriously, the DOT during the Aquino administration did a lot of efforts to promote our country.


Maybe Vietnam or Thailand can host the pageant? I know they can give a spectacular show as well.

With due respect to Ms Wanda she doesnt own the DOT. So even without her if PH is really interested in hosting again the Miss Universe with or without TEO it will push through. DOT does not revolved with her alone. There are so many good working people in the DOT to whom we can trust and work on this hosting thing.

On the other hand she and her siblings should be held accountable with this corruptions. Returning the money wont erase your blunders! more so the government or senate should start their investigation as in PRONTO! These thick face Tulfos are so greedy, shameless with them, with the way they talked and curse other corrupt government official, they too are so CORRUPT to the CORE. PTV-4 should fired them PRONTO!

Honest Thought: I'd prefer another country to host Miss Universe for now. I don't think Philippines is ready yet to assume such a big financial responsibility that the pageant is asking for. I have no doubt a good production is possible... but once the books are balanced, the income deficit from the previous hosting might be outweighed by this current hosting.


True. Hosting a pageant that will cost billions in a form of peso though from private sector is a stupid idea. Why not feed the hungry from that sum of money? Tourist don't even care about pageants and the target audience for Miss Universe are latinos who aren't rich and don't have the luxury to travel the world. I don't mean any negativity just being realistic.

Tourists arrivals to the Philippines was 6.6 million last year and the year before was like 5 million. Therefore there was an increase. President himself wants .the miss universe to be held in Boracay because of this increase .but for me it is too early to host miss universe

$ 12 million to host the pageant ?




That's the cost of the 4th crown for Philippines. If there's no hosting payment there will be no crown for Catrina. A deal needs to be made.

stupid_jerk wrote:~O) After the previous Manila hosting of Miss Universe, it was reported that it costed more than what was initially agreed on. (It costed multiple times of what was agreed)
~O) The government claims that the increase of tourist last 2017 was due to Miss Universe (It should actually! Why? Because spending billions of pesos for just a pageant is stupid) but data from the government shows there wasn't really much difference in tourist entry with Q42016 and tourism earning from months before Miss Universe up to now.
~O) Investors, up to this date, has yet to recover their investment on the hosting. According to moles, this year's potential hosting will be mainly covered by the government instead of investors. (Haist... tax)
~O) Some investors were saddened by the lack of opportunities to show-off Philippines, and their businesses, as a tourist destination. (... so... hopefully PH destinations/culture/tradition get more airtime during the pageant like that in 1994)

TEA TIMES: CHAVIT SINGSON, one of the key people in hosting last 2016 (?) was nowhere to be seen in all of this hoobaloos and rumors of PH hosting again. Maybe he indeed sustained heavy financial losses from his previous business move thats why he cant offer to support and host again! MMMMMMNNNN. /:) ;;?

Edit: see a recent article here:

Miss Universe courts Philippines as 2018 host

MANILA -- The Miss Universe Organization is keeping its options open regarding the venue of this year's pageant, its president said Sunday, as the presence of 3 titleholders in the country fueled speculation that the Philippines would play host for the fourth time.

The organization places great value on the Philippines as the possible venue for the beauty tilt's 67th edition, but details have not been ironed out, MUO president Paula Shugart said.

Will PH host Miss Universe in 2018? Reigning queen's Manila visit fuels speculation
Reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and her 2 predecessors, France's Iris Mittenaere and the Philippines' Pia Wurtzbach are scheduled to attend a fashion show on Tuesday.

Shugart, together with Nel-Peters and Mittenaere, were at a dinner hosted by former Ilocos Sur Gov Luis "Chavit" Singson on Sunday. Singson helped bankroll the 65th edition of the pageant in Manila in January 2017, which was won by Mittenaere.

"The ball is in his hands," said Shugart, who brought Nel-Peters and several other 2017 contestants to the Philippines in December last year.

Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo was quoted in earlier reports as saying that she was negotiating for the Philippine' hosting of the pageant to coincide with the reopening of Boracay.

Would the Philippines want to host the Miss Universe again?
Singson said his business partners in China, Korea, Vietnam and Thailand were also interested to host the pageant.


Pageant-crazy Philippines hosted the Miss Universe pageant in 1974, 1994 and 2017 and has produced two other titleholders aside from German-Filipina Wurtzbach, Gloria Diaz in 1969 and Margarita Moran in 1974.

Catriona Gray, a former Miss World top 5 finisher, will represent the Philippines in the 67th Miss Universe.

Going back to the topic, if the hosting is already a done deal, then even without Wanda Teo in the office, the pageant will push through. Only its not yet. SOOOO. For now, we should just say Viva Las Vegas!

Nah.
The Philippine officials don't care about the crown ... nor about Philippine tourism or any of that.
They just want the money .
Like I said ... They didn't help Maxine Medina get an awesome national costume or an expensive gown .
They left Maxine Medina and her team all by themselves .

Most likely the total cost of hosting the pageant is $ 8 million ... they will pocket the remaining $ 4 million .
