When Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ara Arida, Miss Grand International 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ali Forbes and Mister International 2013 4th Runner-Up were gathered for a guesting in the GMA-7 Morning Show “Unang Hirit“, the hosts (Lyn Ching and Lhar Santiago) had fun asking questions picked from a fishbowl.
There’s no question that the country has already far exceeded many years past in its pageant performance for 2013. Aside from the three mentioned above, Miss World 2013 Megan Young and Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul added the big points to lift us to greater heights of recognition abroad.
And in the upcoming days ahead, the record stands to improve even more with the expected good performances of Angelee delos Reyes in Miss Earth 2013, Koreen Medina in Miss Intercontinental 2013, Bea Rose Santiago in Miss International 2013 and Angeli Dione Gomez in Miss Tourism International 2013.

In any beauty competition, there are candidates so beautiful you’d expect them to perform well enough to secure a spot in the semifinals and not be relegated to the background.
In the ongoing Miss Earth 2013, there are several ladies who can easily make it far if beauty of face is the sole basis of qualifying for the first cut. Take for example the four ladies above. Do you see Catharina Choi of Korea, Priscilla Martins of Brazil, Nicolle Velez of the USA and Natalia Lermanda as hits or misses?
If you ask me, the Brazilian is a lock for the Top 16. The Korean-Brazilian could have been another shoo-in, but her performance so far has been mostly lackluster. As for the other two, I’m middling with their chances.
How about you, dear readers? Who are your hits that could be misses in this year’s batch?

Here’s another potential joiner for 2014. And she’s 100% Pinay
for a change, despite the Z and the desert-sounding name.
Zahara O. Soriano is 19. Her height is 5’8″ (although I think she’s an inch shorter) and with vital stats of 34-24-35. Having joined two (2) beauty pageants this year (Miss Resorts World Manila 2013 and Miss Bikini Philippines 2013), the girl already has a pretty good idea of the ins and outs in the scene. Don’t you thinks she has a bit of Dindi Gallardo vibe in her?
But first things first. She needs to be taken by one of the beauty camps. And I’m being led to believe that KF might get the first option on her.
If Zahara ends up enlisting and screening early next year, then she must have already started training. Let’s wait and see.
Are these alleged photo evidences enough to disqualify Miss Earth Mongolia?
I am generously using the word ‘allegedly’ in this post.
BAYARTSATSRAL BALJINNYAM, 25, who is Miss Mongolia in the ongoing Miss Earth 2013 is allegedly married and with a child. The photos above (during her alleged wedding day and with her alleged son) have been making the rounds of online message boards and the like.
I trust the organizers to get to the bottom of this. And if the alleged information is proven true, then we expect her to be disqualified and no longer part of the finals come Saturday. After all, there’s a reason why the competition is called Miss Earth.
Bea Rose Santiago, Bb. Pilipinas International 2013
It takes a lot to achieve a shapely figure.
Workouts, healthy diet and discipline should come together in harmony so that the desired results are realized.
Bea Rose Santiago is now presenting the body of evidence that will convince people in Tokyo that she means serious business in claiming the crown.
Bea is vavavoom!
So what do you think?
Is Bea ready or is she READY?

Finally, her moment has come.
In the Official Send-Off hosted by BPCI for Bb. Pilipinas International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago at the Gateway, our bet was definitely full of joy and positive energy. She has prepared long and hard for this. Her stay in Tokyo may be for just a little over ten days but she has poured all her time and effort to making sure that she sticks to her gameplan.

Her fellow Binibini sisters were around for moral support. And given the track record established by Mutya Datul and Ariella Arida, she is not about to let her mission go pfft. She is confident of doing well in the pageant and promises to give her 110% every step of the way.

Best of luck, Bea Rose Santiago!
If not, then watch Bb. Pilipinas International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago during her guesting with Boy Abunda on Bandila. And aside from the walk that took all of three seconds in the whole vid, try to assess her conversational skills now.

Okay, now. What are your thoughts about it?
The three most photogenic Earth Warriors
Miss India Sobhita Dhulipala is Miss Photogenic based on online votes. Ashley Qian of Macau demolished Angelee delos Reyes of the Philippines for 2nd place. The difference between India and Macau is so small that the former’s battalion must have made a last minute blast of voting to insure that their bet stays at #1.
All three ladies have led from start to finish. It was just a formality to announce the placers.
Their respective fans and supporters should be congratulated for a job well done.
This could be one of the most crucial pre-pageant final activities of Miss Earth 2013. In the photo above by Melvin Sia of OPMB Worldwide, Anastasia Sukh of Ukraine (center) grabbed the Gold in a hotly contested swimsuit competition. She edged out Priscilla Martins of Brazil (right) and Alyz Heinrich of Venezuela who took the Silver and Bronze medals, respectively.
The trio’s medal-worthy performance in swimsuits could already be a sign of their Top 16 appearance during Saturday’s finals.
