The pre-pageant activities of Miss International 2013 are in full swing. With the Press Presentation over and done with, the 72 candidates went on a tour of Hokone where they had a fun-filled time.

My Nine Faves so far
Among the seventy-two (72) candidates for Miss International 2013, I short-listed nine (9) early top picks who I feel will do very well in the competition. Gut-feel dictates that there is a certain face that the Japanese organizers will favor. And I believe these ladies fit the physical requirements.
In this group, three (3) of them are practically “non-negotiables”, i.e. they are definitely front-runners for the crown – Miss Philippines Bea Rose Santiago, Miss Venezuela Elian Herrera and Miss Iceland Sigrun Eva Armannsdottir.
While my selection looks too pro-Philippines, I can’t help it because she deserves to be a top contender after reviewing the line-up. Her major spoilers are the two aforementioned, with Spain’s Araceli Carrilero Martinez and Netherlands’ Nathalie den Dekker as two other strong possibilities.

If our bet continues with her excellent showing so far (minus the National Costume, of course) then I don’t see any reason why she would be denied a Top 5 spot with a good aim at the crown. Let’s see how she will keep it up in the coming days ahead.
Thanks to Kenji Yutani of Missosology for the image of Bea Rose Santiago’s National Costume above.

Ines Ligron's assessment of Bea Rose Santiago
Renowned beauty queen maker Ines Ligron posted on Facebook her assessment of our Miss Philippines Bea Rose Santiago. And she can only write positive words about her.
Given her standards, I like it that our MI2013 rep has met her expectations and is even commending the training and preparations for our beauty queens.

Bea touring Tokyo with the other delegates
Above are some of the first photos taken of Bb. Pilipinas-International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago with the other candidates of Miss International 2013. It seems that she is off to a good start by doing some light bonding with as many ladies as she can.
Let’s see how things will shape up in the next few days when she will have already formed a clique with the ones she has good chemistry with.

Bb. Pilipinas International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago safely arrived in Tokyo, Japan earlier tonight for Miss International 2013.
Let us all wish her the best of luck in the pursuit of the country’s 5th crown in the pageant.
As she herself mentioned in an interview during the send-off, “I want to end the year with a slam!“
I say, “Slam the competition, girl!”

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.
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.
