Very supportive ang Miss Universe Organization sa Miss Universe Philippines 2020, ayon kay Jonas Gaffud, na creative director ng Miss Universe Philippines Organization.

Ang Miss Universe Philippines team ay binubuo nina Mario Garcia (business development and marketing), Albert Andrada (design council head), Lia Ramos (head of women empowerment and charity), Shamcey Supsup-Lee (national director), Atty. Nad Bronce (head of legal affairs), Jonas Gaffud (creative director), at sina RS Francisco at Sam Verzosa (sponsors/presentors).

“Pero in terms of yung day-to-day activities, kunwari yung creativity ko, wala namang ano, I mean they’re not...Siyempre, busy rin sila sa kanilang… mas malaki yung kanilang ginagawa. So, kami nina Mario and then sina Shamcey and Lian, nasa kanilang projects and all, kasi mahirap kung…

“Like even fashion week, papakialaman ko pa ba iyon?

“So, sila na nina Albert doon. So, with Miss Universe, puro guidance lang yung agreement that we have with them.”

Mula sa Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI), inilipat sa Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) ang ang local franchise ng Miss Universe 2020 noong December 9, 2019.

Nilinaw ni Jonas na walang involvement sa MUP si Chavit Singson, na kasalukuyang mayor ng Narvacan, Ilocos Sur. Akala kasi ng iba ay front lang sina Jonas at si Mayor Singson ang utak sa likod ng MUP.

Isang major sponsor si Mayor Singson ng 2018 Miss Universe pageant.

“No, no, no, it’s blood, sweat and tears of me, Shamcey, Mario, and then we involved Lian, Attorney Nad and Albert, kami talaga iyon...

"But we are very, really thankful to Gov, and, of course, alam mo, love na love ko si Richelle Singson, and so I would like to involve her again sa charity gala.

“Kasi, siya yung parang chairman namin for charity gala last year, e, co-chairman sila ni Pia [Wurtzbach], so parang I would like to make her involved again.”

As MUP creative director, ano ang main obligation ni Jonas?

“Ako lahat ang nag-iisip kung paano ito, like overall talaga ako, lahat nag-iisip, so from even iyung accredited partners program, ako iyung nag-iisip nun.

“Iyong screening paano, itong… lahat, approval ko lahat, kung paano iyung logo. So, even the small details, the minute details, sa akin na lahat.

“Even the finals, kung paano yung finals, but again it has to be with the team, may vote siyempre yung team.

“Like kunwari, kung sinong director ang kukunin. Siyempre, may suggestion sila, di ba, na parang, ‘Jonas hindi puwede ito, e, kasi sa lighting ganito,’ siyempre makikinig ako sa ganoon.”

Nakausap si Jonas ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) nitong January 29 sa Empire Studios sa Uptown Mall, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.

Gaganapin ang Miss Universe Philippines 2020 on May 3, sa SM Mall of Asia Arena.
