Exactly. What the OP is saying is that even the most beautiful pure Asian women are no match for the mixed ones.

This newswoman looks "native"


This woman looked native when she was young, now she looks kinda Mestiza


She looks native too


And her


But there's only a handful
The first woman could easily pass in China.

The last one looks mestizo not native.

Most of the Austronesians originally came to China so they do indeed resemble E.Asians, especially South Sinids like S.Chinese, Hmong-Miao, Viets.

Why does it seem like a large majority of Filipinos do look part Chinese or something? Even if the percentage is supposed to be so small?

The last one doesn't look Mestiza, she just has this wierd phenotype that a lot of Filipinos have. It's more common in men, so thats why she's just a comedian. She doesnt look feminine enough to be taken seriously

And the first one does kinda remind me of some Chinese celeb that I cant think of. But sometimes she doesn't look very Chinese


Taberna congratulates Davila for award - YouTube

But maybe I have a different idea of what Chinese look like. I think she's one of the most typical looking Filipina celebs.

Is this from experience in the Philippines? The Chinese have been in the Philippines for 1,000 years. People who are considered Chinese-Filipinos are only considered as such for a few generations, then they're just Filipinos. I dont think the Philippines looks as Chinese as Vietnam or Thailand though.

Off topic but BTW, China has some beautiful NATIVE Eurasian women too. They are ethnic minorities such as Uighurs and Tajiks.

1. a Uighur singer from Xinjiang

Some of the Godinez are well known in Philippine Showbizness. Tina Godinez is one of their famous family member back in the 90's. They are full Filipinos as in both parents are 2nd and 3rd pic are sisters. I think they are related to the 1st pic for sure (Becca Godinez), a Filipina singer migrated in the US.

They are special. That's it.
In reality no one really goes after them seriously.

I've noticed that theme on Philippines TV. Nearly every celebrity is half this or half that. It's almost a requirement that if you're half-something, you've hit the basic requirements to be a Philippines TV celebrity.

I think it's gone so far, that I've noticed that many Filipina women very actively search out foreign guys (not just white guys, but Japanese and Koreans as well). They figure if they can procreate with those guys and create babies, that their babies will later than become potential celebrities. I.E. Major breadwinners for the families.

That's just my observation anyways....maybe I'm way off, but there certainly seems to be truth to an enormously large percentage of mixed Filipino celebrities, and poorer Filipinos desparately wanting foreign husbands/boyfriends.

The interesting this thing about this thread, is it's WORSHIP towards Filipino MIXED people. Pretty much every single one of these Filipino celebrities throughout this thread are mixed.
