Miss Philippines Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell is down to counting the days before she starts welcoming the candidates of Miss Earth 2014. And just earlier this week, she wrapped up with the shoot for the eco-beauty video that will form part of the medal-winning activities for the pre-pageant part of the same.
Final gown fittings should be completed within the weekend till early next week. And I am just as curious if Jamie will be wearing a Cary Santiago creation, just like Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson.
By and large, our Miss Earth 2014 bet will go all-out in competing for the crown. And her confidence remains unshaken, despite being the host delegate. She knows that it will be equal footing at the onset and it’s up to her to sustain the strong drive to excel. :-)
The other night, Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann guested on “Tonight With Arnold Clavio” (TWAC) on GMA News TV. For a change, we saw her softly humorous side instead of the constantly formal and graceful beauty we are used to seeing.
There was even a phone-patch interview with Paolo Ballesteros who was the one who really convinced Val to join a beauty contest.
Do watch the TV guesting now.

At exactly 6:45 this morning, Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti will be leaving for Tokyo, Japan aboard Philippine Airlines (PR428
). With her are all our best wishes for a successful journey to the Miss International 2014 crown.
For the first time, the Japanese organizers have decided to finally jump into the online voting bandwagon. So calling all Filipinos here and around the world, we will be given our opportunity to further show our love and support for Bianca by taking part in the pageant’s popular (People’s) vote.
You simply need to access the contestants section of the official website. From there, click on Miss Philippines and you can cast a vote.
And this will all start on Monday, October 27.
Let’s go full blast in voting for Bianca!
But before doing that, watch one of her last TV interviews (earlier in the week) on 9TV’s Daybreak Conversation. This is where she promised to bring home the Miss International 2014 crown.

Miss Earth France 2014 Laëtizia Penmellen
This woman's classic beauty takes my breath away.
Laëtizia is one of the most beautiful Miss France placers I have seen.
Laëtizia Penmellen is like the quintessential Miss France (even if she only placed 2nd Runner-up in the nationals
). She lives in Paris (originally from Provence
), photographs with such amazing results akin to famous celebrities and moves with such cosmopolitan vibe. And she is all set to arrive in Manila for Miss Earth 2014.
I am always a sucker for classic beauties. Eternal. Timeless. If Laëtizia will prove to be just as good an earth warrior as she is a potential international beauty queen, then I don’t see why France will not snag an element this year. Perhaps, even the top crown itself.
Watch her video for Marie Laporte Collection 2015 below and tell me what you think.

Siran Samuel – Miss Earth South Sudan 2014
I have received word that Siran Samuel, South Sudan’s representative to Miss Earth 2014, might no longer be coming to Manila due to the reported ebola outbreak
in her country. I was also sounded off that the supposed entry from Sierra Leone won’t be competing due to the same reason as well. As far as Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and South Africa are concerned, no final word has been received from their end if their bets will push through with the Manila trip or not.
Truth be told, this is a sensitive concern. And it is not only centered on Miss Earth, but all other international beauty competitions taking place between now and early next year.
It personally saddens me because these ladies only want to banner their respective motherlands in the global pageant stage.
But then again, hands are tied in major health situations like this.
John dela Vega's franchise certificate for Miss United Continents 2015
It was mere formality that John dela Vega uploaded a copy of his franchise certificate for Miss United Continents 2015 in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Having already placed the sash of Miss United Continents Philippines on Miss Grand Philippines 2014 2nd Runner-up Therese Gomez, he already unraveled the international beauty contest he has closed a deal with.
While I cannot give 100% confirmation that Therese will already be our representative to the 3rd edition of the South America-based pageant, it’s looking clear by the day that she might really be the one to get the job. This should hold true if the schedule of Miss United Continents next year will be dated before the conduct of Miss Grand Philippines 2015.
Be that as it may, we can already expect JDV’s sophomore efforts for MGP to yield three (3) titleholders and possibly two runners-up. ;-)

Okay, here’s another girl who we might just see entering showbiz by default or being groomed for modeling. I’m not ticking the box under pageants just yet. But who knows how time can change the mind of someone, especially if she has already signed up with Mercator Models.
Kaila Estrada is the beautiful daughter of showbiz personalities John Estrada and Janice de Belen. She definitely got the looks and a good enough measure of her father’s height. And I bet that we shall see more of her soon. Be it on the small screen, the runway or possibly an indie flick or two.
Let’s stretch things a little bit now. Do you think she has the good physical foundation to try out for beauty contests as well? I don’t see any reason why not. With Jonas Gaffud behind her, the option will always be on the planning board. Career-wise, that is. ;-)
