Miss Philippines Rogelie Catacutan (leftmost) during the Preliminary Interview with the judges of Miss Supranational 2015
Miss Philippines Rogelie Catacutan has gone through all the preliminary phases of competition – swimsuit, evening gown and interview. There is a waiting period from this point hereon where endless rehearsals will fill in the schedule of the candidates. My hope is that our bet has done more than enough to secure a good placement at the very least. Of course, nothing beats aiming for the Philippines’ 2nd Miss Supranational crown. We just need to stay positive but at the same time ready for any eventuality.
By the way, Rogelie wore a Cary Santiago gown (photo below) for the judging. :-)

I appreciate all your guidance and support.
From all of us here at normannorman.com, good luck in Mister Worldwide 2015, Jolo! :-)
Jolo Dayrit will depart for Orlando, Florida tomorrow to represent the Philippines in the Mister Worldwide Competition 2015
Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss
The Miss World Organization (MWO) couldn’t have picked a more qualified winner last year in Rolene Strauss. This South African lass has been continuously performing her duties as the reigning titleholder to a T. And now that she is leading the delegates of Miss World 2015 in almost all the pre-pageant events in China, there is the ingrained responsibility of becoming big sister to everyone. She is both warm and gracious. Her presence is commanding but still accessible.
I wonder who among this year’s batch is starting to get the halo effect from Julia Morley. We all know that the delegates are being keenly observed every single day. And whoever proves to have all the best qualities to fill in the shoes of Rolene will most likely shine all the way to December 19 when Miss World 2015 will be crowned. :-)
