Miss World 2013 Megan Young and Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss are currently in Barcelona, Spain as Special Guests of the ongoing Cine Europe Film Expo 2015 which features the latest independent and mainstream films from the continent’s top and upcoming filmmakers.
And what is a reunion without the mandatory bonding between the two gorgeous ladies? Having established themselves as good friends ever since the Miss World 2014 finals in London and Rolene’s visit to the country for the Beauty With A Purpose projects at PGH, they already feel quite comfy in each other’s company.
Enjoy Barcelona, ladies! :-)

Miss World 2013 Megan Young is now a Primetime Lead Actress as the new MariMar
Miss World 2013 Megan Young has now officially entered a new phase in her life as a celebrity. After the recent announcement of the cast members of GMA-7’s remake of MariMar, she has been ushered in to the role of a Primetime lead starrer that will pair her with Hunk actor Tom Rodriguez.
It remains to be seen how she will approach the role made famous by Mexican actress Thalia and the beautiful Marian Rivera. But based on the video clip below, she still wants to inject her own brand of charm for the role so as not to be totally compared with her predecessors. She will definitely watch the original and the first local remake, but just so that she will get a good feel of what the role will fully require of her.

Best of luck in this new chapter in your career, Megan! :-D
The video below was made by StarStyle for Miss World 2013 Megan Young before she finally decided to sign an exclusive contract with her original TV network GMA-7. As we all know by now, our former blue crown wearer will be hosting the station’s reality artista search (“Starstruck“) before finally filling in the shoes of the lead in a planned remake of “Marimar” for the nth time.
For now, enjoy her behind-the-scenes in a video where she went offstage and into the woods. ;-)

Back to being Kapuso, Megan is
And so it came to pass.
Miss World 2013 Megan Young is back to the network where she originally started her showbiz career that was beautifully interrupted last 2013 when she joined and won Miss World Philippines before claiming the blue crown in Bali, Indonesia the same year.
Queen Megan signed a one-year exclusive contract with GMA-7 where she is initially slated to host “Starstruck” – the reality-based artista search where was once a part of as a contender – with actor Dingdong Dantes. After this, the buzz is that she will finally return to full-time acting via a lead role in a teleserye which is still under wraps for now.
Welcome back to Philippine showbiz, Queen Megan! :-D
Today, Miss World 2013 Megan Young turns a year older and I can only wish her all the best on this, her most special day.
Many things are waiting to be finalized in the planning board of our Queen’s showbiz career at the moment. I hope that the most promising of the lot would come true in the coming weeks and months ahead. Of course, it goes without saying that I also want her to get the best lovelife ever!
Happy 25th Birthday again, my dear! :-D

Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss is in the house!
The beautiful South African, who is the reigning blue crown wearer, arrived in the Philippines last night along with Miss Julia Morley. Together with Ms. Cory Quirino of CQGQ, they made a special visit to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) to check out the progress of the BWAP (Beauty With A Purpose) project started by the Miss World Organization for the ward of the Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Department. Being a medical student herself, she particularly took interest in the same.
And what would Rolene’s visit be without a reunion with dear friends Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann and Miss World 2013 Megan Young? The three of them took the time to bond again even for a brief moment. And they really had so much to update each other with.

While the stay in the country won’t be a long one, I hope that she will enjoy our hospitality. For a warm and kind-hearted lady like her, we should really roll out the carpet! :-D

I was in a brief conversation with Miss World 2013 Megan Young last month during the dinner she hosted for Team Bata. Out of the blue, we got to talking about the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 candidates and we singled out the stronger ones. The name of Janicel Lubina was mentioned. Her face lit up, and quickly said, “I wish she will get a good crown.
We all know that Janicel was 1st Princess to Megan’s Miss World Philippines title last 2013. Because of the constant togetherness then, the latter was able to know the Palaweña deeper – her dreams and aspirations included.
This really got me into thinking. Janicel is indeed the best bet of Kagandahang Flores for a major crown this year. Not that I am discounting the efforts of Hannah Ruth Sison to nail one in her 3rd try. But Binibini 11 is pure beauty power that has pierced through the minds of different pageant groups, regardless of camp affiliations and preferences. If she fails to leave a mark in the minds of the judges come March 15, then something must be wrong somewhere.

So is Janicel 100% ready for a good crown? I believe she is. Now, as to what that good crown refers to, it will all boil down to which international competition she will be a perfect fit for.
A Bb. Pilipinas crown is a Bb. Pilipinas crown. For as long as the word “Tourism” is not attached to it (no offense meant to Parul Shah), then it’s all good. Very good even. ;-)
This girl is a diligent pageant student
