Miss World 2013 Megan Young is a happy MariMar. The pilot episode of her show was on top of the Philippine-trending hashtags (#MariMar2015) last night. And pending the release of actual TV ratings from AGB Nielsen and Kantar, it should have posted healthy numbers alongside the competition.
Megan and leading man Tom Rodriguez would like to thank everyone for the support and are asking for the continued support of the show on GMA-7 every night after 24Oras.
Thumbs up to the new MariMar! :-D
Before she won Bb. Pilipinas International 2005 and Miss International 2005, Precious Lara Quigaman took part in Eat Bulaga's TeeVee Babe
Let’s take a trip down memory lane to 2001 in our Sunday Senti Specials. Back during the time when Precious Lara Quigaman participated in the TeeVee Babe contest of GMA-7’s Eat Bulaga, nobody would have thought that she would become big in the pageant world. Four years after that stint on the lunchtime variety show, her fate will be baptized with a win as Bb. Pilipinas International 2005, and soon as the country’s 4th Miss International winner.
Lara is now an accomplished character actress on TV, a book co-author and a happy wife & mother. Funny but I really never lost sight of her almost every Sunday. We both live in the south and regularly eat lunch at Alabang Town Center. I’ve seen her from the days when she was still single to her being wife to Marco Alcaraz and now a devoted mother. Still very beautiful and slim. And friendly.
Let’s watch part of her video during the TeeVee Babe 2001 Grand Finals where she was named 1st Runner-Up.

Megan Young as MariMar will premiere this coming Monday, August 24
This coming Monday, August 24, Miss World 2013 Megan Young will return to primetime TV with the start of “MariMar” on GMA 7. And our Queen really gave her best in performing her biggest lead role to date. It would really warm her heart even more if you will support and watch the series.
Megan will have actor Tom Rodriguez as leading man, with an excellent cast led by Bb. Pilipinas International 1986 Alice Dixson, Jaclyn Jose, Lauren Young, Zoren Legaspi, Ina Raymundo, Jaya Ramsey, Dion Ignacio, Candy Pangilinan, Carmi Martin, Nova Villa, Tommy Abuel, Frank Magalona, Ricardo Cepeda and Cris Villanueva.
Watch the two videos below. The first is a news clip on how Megan and Tom prepared for their roles, while the second is an interview with PEP on how the new remake will be played by Miss World 2013 herself. :-)

MariMar premieres on August 24 on GMA-7 right after 24 Oras.
It's always a pleasure having a date with Miss World
Just hours earlier, I was in the company of Miss World 2013 Megan Young. We agreed to have light lunch and coffee at EDSA Beverage Design Studio (a great find for a coffee lover like myself
) and talked about a lot of things – both juicy and pageant-ish – that we lost track of time. We spent exactly 2 hours and a half of non-stop chikahan
. Of course, I couldn’t blog about all the details of our conversation (the interview was really meant for the cover story I will be writing about her for another publication
But this much I can say. Her upcoming teleserye “MariMar” is something that you can really look forward to. It has a great cast with actor Tom Rodriguez playing Megan’s leading man Sergio. Fellow beauty queen Alice Dixson has been signed up to be her (hold your breath) mother. And most interesting of all, her younger sister Lauren is going to fill in the role of a nemesis to MariMar. Those would definitely be interesting scenes to watch.
The series will premiere on GMA-7 later this month. Here’s the teaser for now. ;-)

Just in case you missed it last night (like me after coming home late due to the traffic from Fisher Mall to Parañaque
), I am sharing the video of the episode of GMA-7’s I-Witness where one of the hosts, Sandra Aguinaldo, featured the beauty boot training camp of Kagandahang Flores (KF) and its head, Rodgil Flores. You can see below the physical and emotional challenges that their beautiful trainees had to go through just to achieve an all-around pageant-ready body, mind and heart.
It’s true what the ladies would say. Pageantry is not all glamour and glitz. Beneath the beautiful gowns, crowns and all, there is a punishing road ahead to get to the intended target – a national crown.

Miss World 2013 Megan Young in a photo taken in San Juan, La Union by Erika Yamaguchi

If I were to second-guess the reason behind the photos of Miss World 2013 Megan Young in the waters of San Juan, La Union, she could be getting test shots for her upcoming lead role in GMA-7’s “MariMar” remake of a remake.
And our girl is definitely in her elements doing these poses for Erika Yamaguchi. Some of you might ask what the dead giveaway could be. It’s the curls on her hair that is a trademark of the original MariMar – Thalia.
The series will premiere this 3rd Quarter so taping dates for the same are already properly penciled on the production schedule.
Good luck, Megan! :-)
