The Miss Intercontinental 2010 is ongoing in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The winner will be crowned next Saturday, November 6. The Philippines is represented by Mutya ng Pilipinas-Asia Pacific 2010 Christi Lynn ‘Ashley’ Landrito McGarry, a Fil-Am from the US East Coast. People ask why she was sent here instead of Mutya ng Pilipinas-Intercontinental 2010 Carla Lizardo. Unfortunately, a close relative of Carla died during a fire recently and asked if the organizers can send someone else. Ashley was promptly called to fill in her shoes and agreed to a switch of pageant (Carla will now be going to the Miss Asia-Pacific next year).
Let’s wish Ashley the best of luck in the pageant! ;-)
