In 2010, Mike was among Candy Mag's Top 10 Regular Cuties, ranking 5th.

Two more pageants were held in Naga City the next two nights after the G. Bicolandia 2012 pageant.
On September 5 (Wednesday) at Jesse M. Robredo Coliseum, the Miss Bicolandia 2012 winner was crowned and she is 19-year-old Yvethe Marie Santiago, a graduating BS Accountancy student from the Bicol University.
The pageant was hosted by Kapuso stars Raymond Gutierrez and Isabelle Daza, while RnB Prince JayR was the featured performer.
Yvethe Santiago has already represented the Philippines in the 22nd World Miss University (2010) held in Korea and won Best National Costume.
She's so gorgeous! I can already see Yvethe being crowned with a title when she joins Binibining Pilipinas in 2014 (not in 2013 'coz she is a graduating student and will review for the October 2013 CPA Board Exam).
Previous candidates and winners of Miss Bicolandia who were later crowned Binibining Pilipinas were Melody Gersbach, Venus Raj and Dianne Necio.
Then last Thursday, another male pageant was held but this time, a contest for teen Bicolanos.
Winning the Pretty Boy Bicolandia 2012 title was the very tall and handsome 17-year-old Jovy Rene Bequillo, a Tourism Management student at the Ateneo de Naga University.
He's such a cutie!
