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

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.
Rolene's OOTD for the PGH visit
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
Miss World 2013 Megan Young has never had this long a time to relax and move on with life
Just waiting for the right time to reveal her next projects, Megan is.
After more than a year of constant traveling, personal appearances and international charity fund-raising, Miss World 2013 Megan Young has never had this long a break to enjoy life as a normal individual or a typical celebrity. And she’s every single bit enjoying the free time in her hands.
But not for long, I reckon.
Aside from shooting new commercial and print endorsements, there are strong rumors that she just might make a big comeback to her original home network – GMA-7 – where the buzz is that she will do a remake of the hit Mexican telenovela “MariMar” or “Rosalinda” that made big stars out of Marian Rivera and Carla Abellana, respectively. In addition, there are talks that she will be paired with real-life boyfriend actor Mikael Daez who is an exclusive contract artist of the same network.
If this news item turns out to be true, then this could be Megan’s biggest Philippine showbiz break after having been part of both ABS-CBN and TV5 before becoming Miss World.
Rumor has it that Megan will make a grand return to GMA-7
And for those who will cry that she should no longer return to where she started, well, life in showbiz is just like a round of rigodon de honor. Since our Queen hasn’t really resorted to burning bridges, then she can always come back and get a more attractive contract. ;-)

Megan (center) poses with her Team Bata
Earlier tonight, Miss World 2013 Megan Young invited me to join her and Team Bata in a Thanksgiving Get-Together at Chef Laudico Guevarra’s. It was a fun early dinner with food overflowing as only the sumptuous buffet of the place can offer.
Megan bonded with everyone and did not mind letting her hair down. She gamely spent hours of talking with the loyal supporters who attended. And gifts were also exchanged.
Before the affair ended, group photos galore and our Queen brought out her own camera to give away souvenir shots to every single attendee.
Thanks for the invite, Queen Megan! And thank you Team Bata for standing behind her all the way! :-)
