Fil-Brit Adam Davies for Misters of the Philippines 2014
He’s an athlete who does the tracks. He is also a well-educated individual with specializations in Business Management, Accounting and Finance and levels in Fine Arts and Graphic Design. And Adam Rhys Davies has the good looks to come with the whole package as well. What more can you ask for from this guy?
His advocacy? “I want to focus on helping towards the ongoing battle of eradicating poverty in Philippines by working alongside established charities in whatever way possible and I’m especially interested in being able to do some volunteering.“
While he is no Andrew Wolff or John Spainhour in terms of hype and celebrity status, Adam is certain that he can represent the Philippines well internationally, while further exploring his Filipino roots in the process. That is, if he ends up winning one of the titles.

Miss World Australia 2014 Courtney Thorpe and her official pre-arrival shots for Miss World 2014
Somewhere deep in the heart of Down Under, Miss World Australia 2014 Courtney Thorpe is training hard for Miss World 2014. The 24 year-old Fashion Editor of GC Mag is not about to reveal the secret location. But I will hazard a guess that it could be Hunter Valley where the national finals was held or Melbourne perhaps. If not, then it’s still all good.
At any rate, what is clearly more important is that Courtney is not letting up in her preparations for London. She knows how heavy the pressure is on creating an indelible mark in the big competition up ahead. If her predecessor Erin Holland placed in the Top 10, she is aspiring to do better and hopefully get to the Top 5. From there, the blue crown is just a hop, skip and jump away. ;-)
Start your Saturday right.
Watch the video of Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean “MJ” Lastimosa when she guested on the ABS-CBN program ‘Tapatan Ni Tunying‘ with host Anthony Taberna.
Then share your thoughts after.

Jonas Borces is putting the finishing touches on how Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson will look like the moment she starts competing for the Miss Intercontinental 2014 crown in Tala Bay, Aqaba, Jordan.
Without a doubt, the face of Kris looks a lot more welcoming now, wholesome even. When she was crowned last March, her styling was relatively distant and stilted to a certain extent. But in the magic hands of her mentor, the results have transformed the beauty into a major contender for the title.
Now if only we could pair the face with a complete wardrobe provided by Cebu’s top fashion designers like Cary Santiago, Furne One, OJ Hofer, Jun Escario and Philip Rodriguez, then the journey of Kris will be a lot less thorny. Don’t you think so, dear readers? :-)
Stills from the Bench Go-See for 'The Naked Turth'
For those asking for pictures taken from the go-see of Bench for ‘The Naked Truth’ Denim and Underwear Show happening on September 19 at the SM MOA arena, the photo grid above and the left image are some samples of what took place at the Bench Tower.
But if you want to see all the snapshots (as photographed in Black&White by JL Javier) Bench has provided, click HERE.
Better yet, why not make sure that you get an invite for the hot event by shopping at Bench during the long weekend? It sure won’t be equivalent to a mosh pit location, but a lower box ticket should be acceptable. ;-)
Miss World Guyana 2014 Rafieya Husain will be in Manila from 25 August to 5 September
After the ladies from Thailand and Myanmar, another foreign beauty queen is scheduled to arrive in the country on August 25 for a 12-day pageant training with Gouldian.
Rufieya Aasieya Husain, Miss World Guyana 2014, will be in the country to get further polish and improvement before setting herself up for the trip to London to vie for the crown of Miss World 2014.
But before going to Manila, Zara (as she is fondly called) made sure that she has already started her Beauty With A Purpose (BWAP) Project in Guyana where she helped raise funds for the Help and Shelter Organization which seeks to fight domestic violence in Georgetown.

In the ongoing search for Miss Philippines Australia 2014 (and Miss Charity Queen 2014
), one of the Official Candidates vying for the crown currently being held by Melanie Cristine Balagtas (who went on to place in the Top 10 of Miss Philippines Earth 2014
) is the beautiful Arianne Tan of Sydney.
Proudly representing the Philippine-Australia Friendship Association in the annual beauty contest, Arianne enters the competition armed with confidence and a good heart for charity. She is aiming to win in order to further her personal causes and espouse the organization’s ‘Beauty with Humanity’ thrust.
Miss Philippines Australia 2014 will be crowned during the 26th Grand Philippine Sydney Fiesta Kultura scheduled to happen in Prairiewood’s Fairfield Showground on October 6.
Good luck, Arianne! :-D
You can’t deny the fact that having a beauty-queen for a relative can help in creating awareness for a candidate in another pageant. Such is the case of Ibahn Corum Francisco (aka Justin Ryle Francisco) who is representing the Filipino Community of United Arab Emirates in Misters of the Philippines 2014.
Click above to vote for Ibahn
Ibahn is a cousin of Miss Philippines Earth 2013 Angelee delos Reyes (who is confirmed to be one of the hosts for the finals of the male contest along with Carlos Agassi
). In fairness to the other hopefuls, however, the constant connection stops there. The guy can stand out on his own merits.
An Interior Design student at Dubai’s Preston University, he also works with the Al-Futtaim Group. At the moment, he is focusing on the competition because he feels that he can make a good job of representing the Philippines internationally.
While his advocacy – “…to inspire and help others in my own simple way. It may not be that valuable or luxurious, but it would definitely be something that can affect and change their way of living. I believe in the saying that purpose is what gives life meaning.” – comes off a bit too broad, he might be able to zero in on a more specific thrust as he matures along.
Good luck, Ibahn! Vote for him HERE.
Molly challenges Megan with the ALS Ice Bucket
This ALS Ice Bucket Challenge craze is really spreading like wildfire.
After Miss Earth 2013 Alyz Henrich challenged Miss Universe 2013 to do the same thing, Gabriela Isler has challenged Miss World 2013 Megan Young to get splashed on as well.
Will our Queen bite? I’m sure she will.
Now the question is, who will she challenge forward?
Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago? Or Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul? :-D

It is always interesting to size up your opponent up close and personal even before the actual competition dates arrive. The other day, Miss Philippines Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell got the chance to meet one of her fellow delegates in Miss Earth 2014 in the person of Sasi Sintawee, Miss Earth Thailand 2014.
You know what happens when two friendly ladies get introduced to each other. Both Jamie and Sasi easily broke the ice and immediately clicked as if they have been pals reunited. Of course, it cannot be denied that they will still be fighting each other for the most earth-friendly crown this side of the pageant world. Regardless, it wouldn’t hurt to get an initial ally prior to battlefield encounters. And if they end up being roommates by November, then there’s no need for major adjustments anymore.
And since we’re in the subject of Sasi, check out the left photo above which shows the result of her first make-up transformation under Gouldian. Do you like it? :-)
