Screenshot from the latest TVC of Miss World 2013 Megan Young for Security Bank
Miss World 2013 Megan Young is in All Access mode now. But before you start wondering what that means, let me just say that it is the catchphrase in her latest TV commercial for Security Bank, courtesy of PC&V Communications. And considering the continuity of her endorsement for the said bank, she must really be doing a fine job in being its face on TV and Print Ads. Actually, she goes well with the new look and feel of all Security Bank branches nationwide.
Our Queen, who continues to sizzle as ‘MariMar’ every week nights on GMA-7, continues to look as beautiful as the day she won the blue crown in Bali, Indonesia more than two years ago.

It’s All Access for Megan Young
Miss South Africa Liesl Laurie for Lipault Paris which will provide her luggage and handcarry for Miss World 2015
Since the contestant introduction videos for Miss World 2015 are now up in the pageant’s YouTube channel
, I took specific interest first on Miss South Africa Liesl Laurie who will go for a back-to-back win in the competition where her compatriot Rolene Strauss is the reigning titleholder. It sure won’t be easy considering what we all felt last year when Valerie Weigmann was the one gunning for the same with Megan Young as the outgoing Queen. There has to be a positive halo effect right from the start for us to feel if a particular delegate could be the right one for the job or not.
And with the changes that Julia Morley will start instituting in Sanya, who really knows what she is looking for in the next potential blue crown wearer.
Let’s watch Liesl’s video now. Switch to HD for better viewing pleasure. :-)

Newly-crowned Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Danielle Parungao is not about to take it easy after her victory. After all, she has less than a month to prepare for Miss World 2015 in Sanya, China. And starting last night, she already buckled down to business with Miss World 2013 Megan Young who started laying down the cards on the table on what to expect in the competition. It won’t be an easy task, and not even our former titleholder will endeavor to answer all the specific questions that could possibly be less applicable now.
But for sure, Megan has very useful tips and suggestions to share to Hillarie. More than any other Filipina, she is the one who became very close to Julia Morley. She can size up the long journey ahead for our bet and field in recommendations that would still prove very useful.
Of course, the China factor is something hard to work around with. And it is a hurdle that Hillarie must learn how to face head-on. On top of that, she needs to focus on at least two (2) fast-track events where she has an excellent fighting chance of winning. No use being a Jill of All Trades at this point. The clock is ticking.
So what, dear readers, are your inputs for Hillarie’s preparations? ;-)

Back in 2013, Megan Young won Miss World Philippines Laguna during the candidates’ provincial tour. Last year, Valerie Weigmann was proclaimed Miss World Philippines Camarines Sur 2014. And just earlier in the week, Mia Allyson Hernandez Howell was named Miss World Philippines Ilocos Sur 2015. Is there a trend happening here?
You see, that provincial special award is looking like a potential indicator of who might eventually win the Miss World Philippines crown. And if Mia is getting into the inside track of things, then could she be the next? Or is there someone else who could break the spell of the past two years?
Mia has the brains, talent and personality to actually get into the profile of a Miss World candidate. But so are a handful of the remaining favorites. But if she is fated to become Valerie’s successor, then so be it! ;-)

On the cover of the October issue of Speed Magazine is Miss World 2013 Megan Young who is experiencing an excellent resurgence in her TV career because of the good ratings of her teleserye “MariMar”, alongside the countless appearances she has been getting in shows of GMA-7 which is currently going into phenomenal popularity by the day because of the Aldub craze that translates into extra attention for all its contract artists.
It’s only going to get stronger for Megan, career-wise. Methinks she will be in the lead status for the long haul, even after the scheduled finish of her show mid-December. Everything is going to be upswing for our Queen! :-)
Please grab a copy of the September 2015 issue of Hola Philippines. On the cover are Showbiz couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera, along with Miss World 2013 Megan Young. I am proud to say that the accompanying article for our Queen was written by yours truly, a personal achievement of sorts.

Look who’s going to be a fellow pageant blogger. Jonas Gaffud, that’s who.
The Beauty Queen-Maker has shared the upcoming endeavor in his Facebook account: “Starting my blog soon about my journey into the world of beauty pageants etc.”
And following the same thread, it is likely that his blog will go live starting Tuesday, September 1. It’s coming real soon. And it should be filled with a lot of highlights and sidelights from all the beauty pageants he has fielded his winning national and international Queens in, and more. Juicier than juicy tidbits, I reckon?
I can’t wait to read the first entry! :-D
