1 Shamcey Supsup: Filipino netizens are still celebrating Shamcey Supsup’s victory as 3rd runner up in Miss Universe 2011, and they are eager to know her more. In one of her interviews after the pageant, Shamcey admitted that she already has a boyfriend. Her man was later identified as Lloyd Lee – a part-time commercial model, De La Salle University alumnus, and scion of a family that owns one of the biggest knitting and textile companies in the Philippines. Shamcey returned to Manila last Sunday and made a courtesy call to President Aquino that night. The next day, her motorcade started at the Araneta Center and stopped at the Quezon City Hall. She also visited her alma mater, the University of the Philippines, before proceeding to Makati City, where a ticker tape parade was held in her honor. Go Shamcey!

2 Floyd Mayweather, Jr:  Now-World Boxing Council welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.  defeated fellow American Victor Ortiz with knockout punches while Ortiz was trying to apologize for a head butt that Mayweather received from him. The referee ruled that the controversial punches were legal, but boxing fans criticized Mayweather for doing it. During the post-fight interview, Mayweather said he does not need to fight the world’s boxing champ, referring to Manny Pacquiao. This made Pacman’s fans even more excited to see a faceoff between the two.

3 Julie Anne San Jose:  Kapuso tween star Julie Ann San Jose, who appeared in GMA Film’s “Tween Academy: Class of 2012,” will be seen next in the upcoming series “Daldakina,” which stars child actress Jillian Ward. Julie Ann also performs regularly in “Party Pilipinas” with Elmo Magalona.

Smart Gilas defeated Japan, 83-76, on Tuesday after winning against Jordan, 72-64, on Monday. The team’s final game in the second round will be against Syria on Wednesday. FIBA earlier authorized players Marcio Lassiter and Chris Lutz to play for Smart Gilas “without being subjected to the restriction provided for in article 3-21," which requires the players to submit documents proving they acquired their Filipino citizenship before they turned 16.

6 Lolong: Agusan’s giant crocodile, Lolong, is reportedly expecting a visit from the Guinness World Records. He is a contender for the world record for the largest captive saltwater crocodile. His own ecopark opened to the public this weekend. The entrance fee charged from those who want to see Lolong is 20 pesos. The local government is hoping to catch another crocodile – said to be bigger than Lolong next month.

The DLSU Animo Squad placed second, while the FEU Cheering squad was third.
