    Contestants Visit Baguio

    65th Miss Universe Competition - Contestants Visit Baguio, Philippines + Benjamin Askinas

    Miss Universe contestants have been taking in the sites and sounds of the Philippines leading up to the final show. Next stop: Baguio!

    Baguio, on the Philippines’ Luzon island, is a mountain town called the “City of Pines.” It’s particularly popular in summer due to its unusually cooler weather.

    This year’s Miss Universe contestants saw the city and took part in a parade! See their adventure in Baguio below.

    We Love a Parade!

    Pia visits Malawig with Cordaid

    Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach visited the village of Malawig on the islands of Coron, Palawan, which was devestated by 2013’s Typhoon Yolanda and Haiyan.

    The Miss Universe Cordaid fund has been collecting donations ever since Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler’s visit in 2014.

    Cordaid not only helps rebuild the communities affected by the storms, they also teach the communities how to build back better sustainable and resistant structures.

    “Build back better”

    Cordaid’s mission is to bring security and shelter to the people living in these islands, because if another typhoon hits, the community can react by applying resilient action plans.

    The Miss Universe Cordaid Fund also helps connect local spring water to communities, create greenhouses to maintain crops, and much more.  If you would like to donate to the fund, please see below.

    tumblr_nyckd7lpbt1rcqnnxo3_500-1

    Remember when Flo Rida sang about “Apple Bottom jeans, boots with the fur?” Honestly, how could you forget?! This song is ICONIC and pretty much defined 2008. It was also Flo Rida’s first No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

    2. “Wild Ones”

    Before Sia was singing about swinging from the “Chandelier” and being “The Greatest,” she was featured on Flo Rida’s song “Wild Ones” in 2012. She also co-wrote the song. The music video for this track is the most-watched one on Flo Rida’s YouTube channel! It was also was a No. 1 hit.

    3. GDFR

    It’s going down for REAL. “GDFR” is Flo Rida’s most-streamed song on Spotify. No surprise, because it’s the perfect track to make you dance!

    4. “Right Round”

    giphy-6

    “Right Round” is another iconic Flo Rida song AND another one of his No. 1 hits. Really takes you back to the late 2000’s, doesn’t it?

    5. “Good Feeling”

    tumblr_nyckd7lpbt1rcqnnxo1_500

    “Sometimes, I get a good feeling….” Flo Rida is responsible for so many party hits, it’s hard to keep track of them all! “Good Feeling” was another one of his top 5 hits. It peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart in 2012.

    6. “Club Can’t Handle Me”

    Sometimes, the dance floor just can’t handle your sweet moves, right? No worries, we get it! And so does Flo Rida. This song became a top 10 hit in 2010.

    7. My House

    “My House” may be one Flo Rida’s more recent hits, but it’s still a serious jam. It reminds you that you don’t have to go out to dance and have a good time, just bring the party to your house!
