I made a second review of my impressions of the twenty-seven (27) Official Candidates of Miss World Philippines 2015. And I can now basically share a ranked list of ten early favorites.
Hillarie Danielle Parungao and Emma Mary Tiglao continue to lead the list. But in my opinion, their positions are not fail-safe because the next two ladies – Cassandra Naidas and Christelle Abello are closing in the gap quite fast. And Mia Howell is also starting to peak with her new styling and make-up. If the finals will be held today, these five should make up the magic quintet.
Still, I wouldn’t count the next five ladies out. Jeddahliz Maltezo and Mariah Nilo could be real spoilers. And one of them could potentially switch places with one of the first five in my list. And just to complete the number, I would add Casey Ann Austria, Vianca Louise Marcelo and Janelle Tee.
Truthfully, this year’s title could still be anybody’s game at this point, unlike in 2014 when Valerie was a shoo-in for the #1 spot as early as the screenings.
Let’s trail the ladies more closely now. ;-)

Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidate Cassandra Naidas

This is Cassandra Naidas 2.0 for Miss World Philippines 2015. Her new version is more polished, extra elegant and very beautiful. She is a statuesque Oriental delight who can switch from high fashion diva to pageant-ready contender in a breeze. And her camp, Aces & Queens, has pulled out all the stops to insure that she is notches better compared to her participation during Bb. Pilipinas 2013.
What’s your take on Cassandra’s MWP2015 bid?
I am leaning on the positive with her. :-)

Three of the twenty-six (26) declared (but still cannot be enumerated as a group for now
) Official Candidates of Miss World Philippines 2015 are looming as the strongest contenders for the crown.
Hillarie Danielle Parungao and Cassandra Naidas of Aces & Queens plus Emma Mary Tiglao of KF are being considered as the girls to beat in this year’s edition. And these three ladies are definitely proving their worth as early as yesterday’s final screenings at Raven Boutique Club.
Other noteworthy ladies who qualified are Janelle Lazo Tee, Jeddahliz Maltezo, Vianca Louise Marcelo and Mona Hammad. All of their transformations are noteworthy as they can also spring surprises in the competition
The Press Presentation of Miss World Philippines 2015 will happen in Solaire on September 29, with this year’s finals taking place at The Theater at Solaire on October 18.
More on Miss World Philippines 2015 soon! :-)
Cassandra Naidas, Patrizia Bosco, Hillarie Parungao and Janelle Tee have been sounded off as joining Miss World Philippines 2015

These are just four of the already blogged ladies who are buzzed to be joining Miss World Philippines 2015 – Cassandra Naidas, Hillarie Parungao, Janelle Tee and Patrizia Bosco. And MWP-wise, it makes sense that no other familiar faces seem to be ringing bells of early disclosure. It’s always last-minute entries that happen here and I have already resigned to the fact.
I wish it was already September 8. That will be the day when all tiles will face up and the identities finally revealed.
And I bet there are more surprises in store for all fans and followers. ;-)

Cassandra Naidas is a fashion model first and foremost. But ever since word got around that she is set to make a 2nd pageant attempt with Miss World Philippines 2015 (MWP2015), there is a sudden spark of interest in her oriental looks and statuesque frame that could work well for a potential conquest of the contest where the winner will be going to Sanya, China for Miss World 2015.
In the meantime, our beauty is getting all the model bookings first before she finally traipses into her gowns, swimsuits and platform heels once more. And in her photos in this post by Bruce Casanova, it could also mean that her look will get a transformation for MWP2015.
I can’t wait to see how Aces & Queens will present her for the screenings early next month. ;-)

Hillarie and Cassandra have their work cut out for them

By now, it’s no longer a big secret that both Hillarie Danielle Parungao and Cassandra Naidas are looking at signing up for Miss World Philippines 2015. They are just two of the ladies I have discovered online as already putting their respective Beauty With A Purpose (BWAP) Projects in place.
Hillarie’s cause is to fight against child mortality and which she calls “Katuwang” – something she has already been involved in way back. Her project is based in Nueva Vizcaya’s Tutung Elementary School where she wants to help in insuring that the children will survive their young years and be raised/educated to become responsible adults when the time comes.
Cassandra, on the other hand, traveled to Marilog, Davao to set off her drive and support for clean water. The plan is to install bio-sand filters (BSF) in the poor barangay or community to insure that they get potable water for at least the next thirty (30) years.
There’s really nothing like being tied up with worthwhile causes for a pageant. And these two ladies are taking the lead in doing so this year.
Let’s look at what the others will be up to in their objectives. :-)
