MANILA – Beauty queen maker Jonas Gaffud made another revelation on Thursday, days after announcing that he has left the pageant training camp Aces and Queens.

Gaffud is one of the recently acquired “key talents” of the Miss Universe Organization, and will now serve as creative and events director for the Miss Universe Philippines brand.

He will be working closely with IMG Universe – the agency that owns the international pageant – and the Araneta Group, which runs the national Binibining Pilipinas competition.

“New beginnings. Thank you, Lord. For the Universe!” Gaffud said in an Instagram post.

He added that in his role as creative and events director, he “will be responsible for elevating the level of Miss Universe Philippines further through his innovative and groundbreaking pageant creative concepts and ideas.”

Gaffud will also be expected to “showcase the best of the Philippines” and highlight “the advocacies of modern-day Filipinas.”

Another new member of the Miss Universe Philippines team is Mario Garcia, who will serve as brand and marketing strategist. 

The Miss Universe Philippines title is given to one of the candidates of the annual Binibining Pilipinas, along with five other crowns – Bb. Pilipinas International, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental, and Bb. Pilipinas Globe. 

The reigning titleholder is Catriona Gray, who was also crowned Miss Universe last year.
